This property was very easy to find from Odenplan station, less than 2 minutes' walk from any of the station's exits. The exit at the front of the train as it heads out of Stockholm city centre is nearest. For anyone used to a typical Ibis property (modern, functional, bland) this one is very different, an old building squeezed between many more old buildings.
Reception was quick and friendly, telling us all we needed to know in good English. There is a single lift, which seems adequate as most of the six floors have less than ten rooms on them. The room was a surprise, even by Ibis standards it was tiny! Barely room to walk past the beds to the window. This is not helped by some silly 'modern art' on the wall which impedes walking space. The beds themselves were very comfortable.
The bathroom was small, but this is de rigeur for Ibis properties. It did seem quite modern though, although lighting was limited meaning the shower area was extremely dark. Free wifi is provided throughout the property and was very welcome.
The lower ground floor (below reception) hosted a small guest 'lounge' with coffee machine, tea bags, some comfortable seating and a television. We used this rather than the room for socialising because the room was so small: this lounge is a welcome facility. Next door is the breakfast room (7-10 weekdays, 8-11 weekends) with a typical continental European selection of meats, cheeses and breads with a small hot selection (I say hot, as there is no means of keeping the hot food hot it got lukewarm quickly). Breakfast room was pleasant and not cramped at all, and the staff were friendly and efficient at bringing fresh food out.
Whilst not in the centre of Stockholm Odenplan is convenient with the T-Bana running to the city centre and commercial/tourist centres. It is three stops to the central station. If all you need is a comfortable bed, a decent shower and some breakfast this hotel is great. If you need to spend time in your room and needs table/desk (i.e. travelling on business) this hotel is not for you. In the right circumstance I would return.
