The Negatives: We had a Business Class room and it was small by American standards but average in Europe. While the hotel is on a "parking" street, the tram goes by on the corner so you do hear noise, particularly if the window is open. Thee are no drawers or cupboards to put your clothes in, and little room to put out one suitcase, so storage is a problem. While there is no icebucket in the room, if you go to reception, they will give you a wine bucket that is open and will place some ice in it. The "bar" is actually five stools that are scooted up to the small reception area and it is closed most of the time. The shower is one of those that wets the sink area. A small glass partition is meant to contain the spray. It does not work and a slippery floor is dangerous. You could put a towel down to sop it up, but the management only wants to give you one bathtowel a day. The wifi connection is horrible. At all times, at least something was broken at the front desk. (The credit card machine, the copy machine, the fax machine, etc.) The primary complaint would be that the bathroom door offers no privacy. It is on sliders, but even if it stays in the sliders, there is a significant gap between the door and the wall. Positives: the housekeeping staff are terrific. I don't think that the hotel had more than one housekeeper working during the day, but they did a great job of cleaning the room. If we wrote a note and requested something, the housekeeper made sure that we got it. I have to put in a good word for Klaudia. She wrote us kind notes and although we never saw her, she seemed like a cheery presence. In addition, the breakfasts has a great selection of good yogurts and granola, along with everything a global tourists might want. (Like baked beans.) The chef was available and friendly. The kitchen staff put together a fabulous champagne, fruit and chocolate tray for us. (Be aware that the breakfast area is sunny but not large and can become crowded.) Rooms on the sixth floor have nice views. While much of the view is rooftops, the sky is lovely in the evening and the seagulls make for a feel of being in Norway. The hotel is convenient to almost everything. Trams are easy to catch and nearby. Central Station (train) will require a taxi but the price is not bad. Overall, the hotel was fine for us, but I'd probably not stay there again.
