Because of a mistake made by the hotel, I and my daughter were upgraded to a nice room at the very top of the hotel and facing the river. The room was perhaps a bit small, but we had a ceiling to floor-window which gave us a great view of the river and the city.
We also thought the bathroom was a bit tiny, but as the hotel is brand new everything was in perfect condition.
I would not choose this hotel (or at least not the room we had) if I had to work. There is only one small table so it will be hard to fit anything more than a laptop.
But the bed was wonderful and it was nice to be able to make tea/coffee.
The staff was perfect, everybody were eager to help.
The breakfast was good but not great. Maybe we didn’t appreciate it because it was really crowded during our stay.
We had dinner once and the food was excellent and so was the wine we were recommended.
We also visited the bar one night but I found the service too slow.
If you like running it is nice to go along the river. It is about three kilometers if you run west until you reach the old crane that used to serve the shipyard. I didn’t use the gym but it was small and very basic. We didn’t have time to visit the spa but it looked nice – maybe a bit crowded.
The hotel was situated perfect for our purposes, but it isn’t too bad if you want to visit the city. It is easy to go downtown by ferry (and if you have kids they will probably love it) and it was about ten minutes by bus to the railway station. You can get a card valid for one (75 kronor) or three days (150 kronor) that you use on the ferry, buses and trams. An adult can bring three people under twenty years. It is a good deal.
There was an indoor parking just opposite the hotel. The rate was 60 kronor per 24 hours, which is a very good price in Sweden.
