The hotel is located centrally in Stockholm within walking distance of most sights and museums.
It is newly opened which means it is generally clean and in good shape.
The good stuff:
Clean rooms in good shape
Nice TV with a good selection of different tv channels free of charge
The breakfast is not a buffe, instead you get to pick four items from their "menu" which includes sandwiches, yoghurt, a smoothie, fruit salad, coffee, tea, juice. The different menu items taste good and there is nothing wrong with them per se, but having to choose from a limited menu isn't appealing when you compare it to traditional breakfast buffes at traditional hotels. There are also no cooked items like omelettes, eggs or bacon on the menu if you would like a little hearthier breakfast.
The volume of the music in the bar is way too loud at night, hard to have a conversation without screaming.
When you order a beer from the tap, you only get a small 33 cl glass, but it costs the same as a 50 cl beer would cost at another hotel.
Walls are thin in the rooms, you can easily hear when there is something going on in the corridor outside the room or sometimes what people are doing in adjacent rooms. You can also hear the music from the bar to your room (at least if it's facing the courtyard, don't know about other rooms). Our room was on the 4th floor and we found it very annoying. Bring ear buds if you have any trouble sleeping in a noisy environment.
