This hotel is very minimalist in nature---the rooms are simple, compact, and straight-forward. Everything they do, though, they do very well. Little things in the rooms like large soap dispensers, USB charging ports, and a large TV make the room good for its size.
The breakfast, which was included, was also good. The food didn't change much day-to-day, but the quality of sandwiches, croissants, juices, and so on was very good. While the breakfast is a "choose 4" option, four things is all you ever need to be more than satisfied.
The key to this hotel being great was the helpfulness of the staff. Anything I needed they jumped on, smiling and happy to help. From getting ice for the room to packing up breakfasts to-go for a very early departure, to lending an umbrella on a rainy day---there were no problems they couldn't solve or didn't already have something ready to take care of it when it happened.
On top of the good staff, the hotel location is very convenient, being a 5-25 walk from most of the important sights, and very close to the Arlanda Express stop where it drops you off from the airport.
The price is also right, when compared to most other hotels in Stockholm, which can get very, very pricey.
