I am a regular vistitor of this hotel and was getting a bit disturbed by the negative reviews I have seen on Tripadvisor.
Most people are right when saying that the rooms are a bit average. But, if you as myself, visit this hotel for business purposes, you could argue how important the room is. What I find important is that the room is clean and that the bed is comfortable, which is both the case.
Other things that are important for a business traveller is the bar/restaurant, the overall service and the location.
First of all the bar/restaurant.
Eventhough the menu is normally a bit small the quality of the meals is very good and also good priced. Especially when you also consume the vouchers you get if you are a frequent guest. (150 SEK per day for a top floor member)
If you really have problems with finding something to your liking, there is always the day's special you could ask for. These meals change every day and you can get them with meat or fish.
The service in the restaurant is good! You get serviced fast and things like water and bread are on the house.
What could be better is that not all waiters seem to give the same service. If you happen to have one of the newer employees then this is certainly lacking.
The overall service, I would call very friendly and open. The staff alsways tries to accomodate your needs where possible. So if you are not happy with the room, then normally they are able to find you a better one.
The location is perfect! Very close to the trainstation on one side and to the city centre on the other side. Also the street to the side where people seem to complain about a lot, I didn't find an issue. It is a one way street out of the centre and I don't regard it is very busy, but off course opinion can differ!
Overall a very good hotel for a good price (average 100 euro per night).
I will remain a frequent guest here.
