I booked this hotel through Expedia and got an amazing rate for a standard single room for 7 nights begining the end of March and running the first week of April. The deal was so good I cancelled a previous reservation at another hotel. I was not dissapointed. To begin with, checkin was a breeze and the staff were very friendly and the place was spotless. Everything was made that much better when I got to my room and found I had been upgraded! A queen bed, a full bath (with a wonderful tub) and a free mini-bar that was restocked daily with soda and chocolate. The room was small by North American standards but for someone travelling solo it was perfect. Iron and ironing board, kettle and a big flat screen TV. The free wireless was also great. Included in the price was also a breakfast buffet that was one of the best I've ever had. Meatballs, sausage and scrambled eggs accompanied a cold buffet of assorted meats and cheeses. Lots of fresh yoghurt and amazing pastries.
Before I booked I had read a few complaints about the location of the hotel. It is a 20 minute walk to Gamla Stan but you are only two blocks away from the Radmansgatan TB stop and that's a direct line to Central Station AND Gamla Stan. Super easy to use and very effecient. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
