The hotel is located quite some distance from Stockholm city centre and if you are visiting Stockholm for tourism, a more centrally located hotel would be a better choice. Moreover, in the whole surrounding area construction activity is going on and on one side are the railway lines....one does not feel one is in Stockholm at all. There are no shops or any other entertainment options nearby as yet, so there is nothing to do once you return to the hotel after your day out. The hotel building is imposing and very modern. The rooms are also modern, with white and black/grey decor and really good, the circular windows adding to the ambience. The bathroom with a closed shower cabin is also modern and good. I wish there was a closed cupboard in the room, sometimes one would just like to stuff things in and not want clothes to be on display. There is no coffee/ tea making provision in the room. The breakfast did not have the wide variety we had found in other hotels in Scandinavia. There was a long queue at the small waffle counter where the quests had to make their own waffles. The annoying feature was that the seating area was some distance away from the food counters and each time you need to refill your plate or get something else it involves a long walk. The gym/relax rooms were supposedly in the basement but when we went to explore we found only closed doors and an eerie silence! The reception area is well designed and so is the library area and lounge.
