This place was once a prison. It has been redone into a hotel and is quite beautiful. The halls have a symmetry and calmness. The rooms themselves are compact and small, but the beds comfortable and the bathrooms clean and modern. If you are looking for the large American hotel room this is not your place. But if you are looking for a charming location with great food and Swedish hospitality this is a very good place. The location is on a charming island that is also inhabited by artists. It is a lovely 3km walk around the island. To walk to downtown Stockholm is about half an hour or ten minutes by bicycle. Taxi is about 200 krona. I was there for a conference and so I did not have the time to be downtown. The staff was excellent and every problem I had was quickly solved. My internet did not work but they quickly gave me a little modem to plug in. Conference facilities were fantastic.
We ate in the restaurant 3 times a day and i can say that the food was excellent and different everyday. Breakfast had lots of choice and suited just about every dietary need. Dinner were tasty and the staff friendly and fun. There was no problem speaking English with anyone. They have a charming little coffee room for breaks and everyday was a new fresh baked treat. I think I gained at least 5 pounds.
this is truly a little gem of a hotel. The people kind, the ambiance simple and relaxing, the surrounding interesting and fun. I would recommend this place to anyone.
