We had a great experience with this hotel during a two-night stay. The reception staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms were actually large for Europe. The rooms also have good air conditioning which in the summer is helpful because you don't want to leave your windows open here (see below).
While it is located about a mile from most of the main sights of Stockholm, there is a metro station around the corner which can get you to the central station or to Gamla Stan in less than five minutes. It is also about a 20 minute walk from the central station along one street so it is easy to find. There are also A LOT of shops, restaurants, and bars very close by so you shouldn't have any trouble finding something to do.
The breakfast buffet was really good with the typical European cold meats, cheeses, and breads. Hot bacon and eggs as well as fresh fruit and smoked caviar were also available.
I have read some reviews prior to booking this hotel about noise but we didn't have any problems (standard double room). The windows sealed up tight enough to block out the noise from along the main street. It was busy on the streets both nights when we got in close to midnight both nights and people were still partying outside but we didn't hear anything once we were inside. The hotel does provide earplugs if you still require them.
