“odd mixture”
Reviewed 2 September 2010

The hotel is some distance from the tourist centre, and at least 10 minutes' walk to the nearest metro. Reception was ok, but not particularly welcoming.

The building originally was a wine warehouse: the aim in the public space is "industrial chic" but it just looks messy - exposed pipes, concrete floor, and wallpaper from old newspapers (which is also used as the website background - can't read anything as a result!).

My room was small, but comfortable enough. The biggest problem was the lack of a wardrobe - apparently not uncommon in Swedish hotels - plus limited drawer space: an issue for a anyone staying more than a night or 2. As mentioned before, there are no tea or coffee facilities in the room; also no phone. The bed was comfortable. There is an ironing room opposite Rm 217. Wifi is available in the lobby, but was accessible fairly well in some rooms too.

Other members of the group reported being happy with breakfast (which I never went to). We ate one night at the hotel, and the food was good, with excellent service. Bar staff were also amenable and friendly.

I would be reluctant to pay any more than 100 Euro/night for this - I understand that the company I travelled with paid more than three times that because of an international conference leading to a room shortage, which is another negative. Altogether, ok if you really have to stay here, but not recommended.

Good position to reach the center (using subway) also if the subway stop is not very close to the hotel.
Good position to arrive and to go to the Arlanda Airport (the bus stop is near the hotel).
Breakfast ok also if without brioches.

Room without a wardrobe and bathroom very small.
Our room was on the 4 floor and we heard the noise from the street (cars).
The bed was a problem : very small for two and with only one eiderdown (blanket) too tight ; the hotel should put a bigger bed and two eiderdowns or one bigger blanket.

Being more accustomed to Business calls hotels, I did find the Nottrull Hotels room comfortable and roomy and above all else warm, both in feeling and temprature.

But the negative aspects are - no telephone in the rooms. This could be a safety risk. No tea or coffee making facilities in the room and the bar charged 22 sek for a cup of tea which even in cheap motels this is provided in room, and is complimentary. On a more minor side a lack of TV channels for non Swedish speakers. BBC World News does get repetitive after a few hours but this is being picky now.

Would I recommend this hotel to a friend? Yes, but with warnings on the lack of basic amenities. It is a nice place but needs the basics above.

The worst & most expensive hostel we stayed in in all of Europe:
The rooms have no window or aircon so things get very dark, stuffy and smelly very quickly - especially when there could be up to 30 staying in one small room.
The showers are clean and new but very communal.
The hostel is miles away from anything in a residential area right on the edge of the city.
WOULD NOT RECOMMEND TO BACKPACKERS!

Like the previous reviewer, we stayed here for three nights in July. The hotel is in an historic building, and has preserved all of the character of the architecture while incorporating modern art and design. Our room faced the courtyard with a great big window and thick walls - quiet, roomy and bright, with a firm bed and just the right touches in the room to make it feel comfortable. The bathroom was very up to date, clean and efficient. We loved the breakfast buffet, which offered hot milk with your tea (of various kinds) or their good coffee, fantastic fresh wholemeal breads as well as croissants, fresh fruit, yogurt, granola with various dried fruit and nut toppings, eggs, bacon, and lots of the Scandinavian-smorgasbord cheese, meet, fish, vegetables and condiments items that we found delicious. The dining room and the lobby are very comfortable and spacious as well. On the whole, this hotel offers much more than we have recently encountered anywhere else in Europe (France, Scotland and England on this trip) . The location was perfect for arriving from the airport (Arlanda bus runs right in front), and also for getting to know a non-touristy neighborhood that still has lots of restaurants and interesting features.

We just spent three nights in the Hotel Norrtull and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. The rooms were spotless, comfortable and even spacious for a major European city. The breakfast was expansive with everything from bacon and eggs to cereals and fruits. I would recommend spending some time in the well-appointed lobby where they have set up numerous conversation groups. The free internet in the lobby on a bank of computers is especially convenient. The hotel is located just north of the bustle of the city and while this makes it a bit less convenient, it is worth it as we slept with our windows wide open and didn't hear a sound. There is bus service available just outside the door. We rented bicycles which I would recommend for the best way to see the spectacular city of Stockholm.
