I've always enjoyed the British sitcom from the 1970s called "Fawlty Towers," but staying in a hotel that reminds you of Fawlty Towers -- not so much. There were many little things wrong with this small hotel, not least of which was the wobbly doorknob and lock on our room. Instead of using a screwdriver or hiring a locksmith to properly fix the very loose doorknob, the hotel proprietor used clear celophane tape to try to "fix" it. If you don't need a SECURE hotel room, this might not be a big deal for you.
We also couldn't reliably get an outside line on our very old room phone. Even "Basil," the hotel proprietor, couldn't get an outside line on our phone when he tried! If you don't need to use a phone for local calls, this might not be a problem for you.
The worst thing about the Wasa Park Hotell was planning to stay 4 nights, but at check-in being told we could only stay 3 nights. So we had to scramble to find a hotel for our last night in Stockholm and spend precious time packing up and moving to another hotel for one night, even though Basil the hotel proprietor had emailed me (in response to my email request) to say that we could stay an extra night, but that we might have to switch rooms. I assumed he meant we might have to switch rooms AT HIS HOTEL, but evidently not, since we had to find another hotel for our last night in Stockholm. If you decide to stay at the Wasa Park Hotell, I HIGHLY recommend getting a reservation through an online booker, where your reservation is guaranteed. DO NOT MAKE THE MISTAKE OF EMAILING BASIL THE HOTEL PROPRIETOR TO RESERVE A ROOM, unless finding a hotel at the last minute isn't a big deal to you.
