“If you want to sleep, choose another hotel”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

Nice hotel, nicely decorated room, very good breakfast, free wifi, and excellent location. But if you leave in the morning and come back late in the evening, you pay for a good sleep, which you will not have in this hotel.

There is a trendy bar, right in front of the hotel. It plays techno music (even week days) that is heard in the rooms all night long (literally, I write at 04:00am). This may be why there are earplugs on the night tables, but they do not help to mitigate the bass sound of the music.

We stayed with our 4 years old twins in a family room. The room was not immense but sufficient for a 2 nights stay. We loved the breakfast and were served nicely by staff both in the restaurant/brasserie and at reception. The room was noisy on Friday night (because of the street, but we never heard other guests in neighbour room). Despite the fairly high rate (Stockholm is expensive), we would stay there again and recommend it to friends and family.

We always stay there when in Stockholm. The position is just perfect! In the middle of the center where there is everything, the best shops, the nicest walking streets, restaurants, clubs, everything you need. We love it, but i cant say the same about their breakfast, is quite poor for such a ‘‘premier‘‘ hotel. Nice brunch, though! Clean, cozy and good service!

Happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us!

During this spring we will start with a new breakfast concept called “Best Breakfast by Tina” with a famous Swedish chef, Tina Nordström. It’s a new fresh & inspiring element in our breakfast.

We hope to see you soon again,

Yours sincerely

Very nice old style hotel. Comfortable bed, clean room and bathroom, all well furnished. Noise was not a problem as some others have said, but I was there Sunday - Wednesday nights. I stated in the second smallest size room. It was fine for one person, but would be tight for two people if you planned to spend much time in the room.
Very good breakfast. Not very many hot items, but everything I had was good. The granola/muesli station includes a delicious berries mix topping.
Many restaurants within walking distance, and the palace and other historic buildings are not far - a bit longer walk.
I enjoyed my stay and would recommend this hotel.

Very quiet, old style architecture, but modern rooms. A large patio to enjoy a drink. Not enough space for breakfast on sunday morning but no problem on other days. Walking distance from Vasa museum, market, old town...

Spent a couple of days in this hotel in Feb 2014. The hotel is really great - the value, the room, the location - everything is very good. First, it is 15 minutes by foot from Arlanda Express station, just use the Brunkeberg pedestrian tunnel. Second, the hotel is extremely nice inside and feels very much like home. When you enter the room, the first thing you see is three plush doggies hugging each other and sitting on your bed! You can even buy one of them to take home! The rooms are quite small but very comfortable and look renovated recently. Breakfast and Wifi were included in the room price, and were great. If you stay on the upper floor, you might want to go out to a terrace to make some photos of Stockholm, and the view is nice. Nightlife is quite nearby, still it is quiet during the week and nothing would interrupt you from sleep. The hotel has got soft carpets and antique book cabinets in the corridors, so that you feel even more like home; rooms got great wooden floors. The reception is always very helpful and there's no need to wait. Overall, I'll definitely recommend this to anyone.

A slightly odd collection of rooms. The one ihad was a perfectly decent size on a corner overlooking a busy road junction. I wasn't troubled by the noise, but the fact the hotel placed hearing protectors on the bed side table suggests some people might be! The bed was raised on a higher bit of flooring - which meant both times i got out of bed i forgot and nearly fell into the desk. Different elevators for different bits of the same floor made this a confusing hotel to navigate. Athough the room was a decent size i gather they do vary, and the bathroom was so small, i have had bigger ones on an overnight train.
Breakfast was a bit chaotic and there was nowhere to sit as the place was packed at 0800.
The location is very good - about as central as it gets - with a good choice of eateries near by.
The price was reasonable given the location, but i didn't love the rooms enough to stay again.
