I don't think the Swedes do heat well! I stayed here for three nights (attending a wedding) in early August during a "heatwave" (i.e. temperatures up to 30C).
The hotel is very well located just over the road from the Central Station and therefore extremely well sited for airport and rail transport.
I had a single room of reasonable size and with a good-sized single bed. The receptionist promised to relocate me if the bed was too small but this was not the case. A clean bathroom, good linen, effective wi-fi and good sound proofing (the Swedes seem to do very substantial doors and windows) completed a perfectly acceptable room.
None of the other hotels I visited in town had AC and the Adlon is no exception so it was imperative to have the windows open - and my room on the first floor front opened on to the street with the inevitable noise that brings; however ear-plugs easily countered that. Being on the first floor does bring other dangers however as I opened the curtains one morning to be confronted by the open-deck of a tourist bus. As I had been sleeping "in the Scandanavian style" (as it were) I had to cover my modesty rather swiftly...
The breakfast buffet was extensive with hot and cold options in good quantity with frequent replenishment. As has been noted in other reviews, getting seated at peak times could require a short wait but nothing at all major.
A couple of PCs and a printer were available (and working!) in the lobby which I used to print off my return boarding card.
I had contact with a number of staff and they were friendly and helpful at all times.
Sweden (and Stockholm perhaps especially) seems rather expensive to us Brits with Sterling being so weak so this is by no means a budget hotel, but it is good value in context and I would not hesitate to stay again.
