I do not get it at all. Why do people keep giving this place high ratings. What's funny to me is that many of the reviews give the hotel high ratings and then talk about it being overpriced, outdated and not worth it, yet they then give 4 or 5 stars.
It's ugly as sin on the outside.
It's ugly as sin on the inside.
It's outdated everywhere! Lobby, rooms, etc. The on saving grace is the restaurant which is updated, nice, and has decent fare.
Staff is friendly and the location is good.
The rooms are not scary or anything but they are drap and outdated. There is nothing Swedish and local about the room. It just feels like you're staying at your elderly aunt's house and she's giving you a room that hasn't been used in 46 years. It really feels like that. It felt depressing.
The location is great though, I have to say.
Since hotels are expensive in Stockholm in general, you should not waste your 250-500 USD here on a place that does not merit it. It's just a crappy, sullen drab, uninviting place to stay. I have to say I was bitterly disappointed.
Note: I don't think the beds are Sheraton Sweet Sleeper beds, either. And some of the furniture (the armoire) in my room was broken and could not be used.More
