“Clean Simple, Room and Acceptable Breakfast”
Reviewed 31 May 2013

I thought about giving this property a four rating but when I weighed everything, I settled on a rating of average.

The front desk clerk at check in was very nice and helped us with little things like large glasses and a nice tub of ice cubes. The room was the only one of six hotels I stayed at recently in Northern Europe that did not have a refrigerator or a mini-bar with extra space. There was also no coffee service in the room although there was free coffee near the lobby. The beds were the typical narrow twins you find in Europe - but the set up of the room allowed for moving the beds. We moved the beds together immediately so we'd have room to walk around (the room was very small as seems typical for Scandinavia). There were bed tables that were designed to facilitate moving the beds as they flip up from the wall and there are three of them: one in the middle and one on each side. The ones on the side can only be flipped down when the one in the middle is not in use. This was a unique solution to the space problem. There were also lights above the bed for reading at night. There was a small TV mounted to the wall. The room lacked a safe The room was quite warm and we could only tilt the window open about 3" (100 cm) so this severely limited the amount of air coming into the room. We also had to pull the curtains to block the light and, since the curtains were heavy, this further limited the air flow. The bathroom was miniature, maybe 1.5 miters across. One half of the bathroom had a toilet and small sink (it did have a decent apron for toiletries). The other half was a small shower that did not have a shower curtain.

Breakfast was fine and, had this been my first hotel, I'd have said it was very good; however, breakfast was more extensive, with better choices, in most of the other hotels I stayed at. They did have a nice little deviled egg (sort of) with hollandaise sauce and shrimp on top. I say "a" because there was only one on the tray. Breakfast was ending 30 minutes after we arrived so what was there was what we got. There were scrambled eggs and bacon and some nice hard rolls. There were only two types of juice - apple and orange but the orange was tasty. There were several muesli and yogurt choices and they did have one of my new favorites - vanilla.

The room cost $200 at the current exchange rate so it was very expensive for what you got. The room was clean so no complaints there. I'd stay here again - in winter maybe but I'd stay using Best Western points.

This hotel, although located away from the centre, is so easily accesible and beautiful that travelling by the metro is just a sort trip. The Arena next to the hotel is very impressive and the surrounding area of the hotel gives tranquillity and relaxation. The staff is very helpful and the breakfast has great variety.
