Despite having a good central location,this hotel is nothing overly special. I wouldn't want to stay there for more than a couple of nights. The walls are very thin, so you can hear a lot of noise and the bathrooms are communal but not the cleanest, and definitely not regularly checked. However the rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff are friendly and willing to answer questions. The breakfast is simple but good. It served its purpose when we were in Stockholm, but I probably wouldn't stay here again.

Nice ensuite double room. Staff friendly. Room clean. Cheap and quaint. Might stay somewhere else for variation but no complaints. Definitely stay on fifth floor. Wifi a bit slow but works. Shower pressure okay and removable toilet seat a bit weird but not deal breaker. Elevator very welcome and begs the question what is on the mysterious fourth floor.

Stayed: August 2013

This was a simple, average, ok hotel. Service was good and easy going. Athmosphere was good.

Rooms were small and simple, but on a trip, who wants to sit in a hotel? You pay for a bed and that's it.
We took hostelrooms that cost 70euros/2 nights each. Very cheap. Showers were ok though garbage smelled. I think they didn't empty it every day.

Breakfast was included and it was decent. Bread, butter, veggies etc.

Room Tip: Walking in the corridor causes noise. Showers weren't the most efficient.

This hotel is very outdated with rude staff. Although this does offer good breakfast, other services range from bad to worse. Their elevator is outdated and old as if you are living 1950s. I lived in a triple room. The bath room is so small that if you are weighing more than 200 lbs, forget about using the bathroom, you just cannot fit into the bathroom. The wifi is very poor quality. If you are living on the top floors you just cannot use the internet. The staff is very rude and unfriendly. When they were requested about check out two hours later, they flatly refused and asked to leave the room at Noon time at any cost. Overall please do not waste your money on booking this hotel. There are lot od other alternatives in the same location.

Room Tip: Do not take room on top floors. If you have to use internet, this hotel is not a good choice.

We picked this hotel for its location and price and we were thankful we were only staying one night.

The bathroom was strange, some weird shower pod in the middle that you couldn't really fit in to and didn't work properly, all the plumbing was weird and made a lot of clanking noises - the breakfast was disappointing and my apple juice was really watered down.

Location was good and it did fit into our budget, but one night was enough.

the hotel is near the central station so a few minute by walking from the old city.
the room was clean and the breakfast was good.
It is a low cost choice for everybody, there were families, young couples and also friends staying there.
