Stayed here for 2 nights. Lovely welcoming staff, tasty well prepared breakfast buffet. Room clean and well maintained. Really pleasant stay. Would recommend to couples and families alike. Close to metro.

I stayed here for one night. The receptionists I met were friendly and helpful, got me a quiet room without even blinking. The room itself - a room with two single beds - was fairly small and the beds were unusually narrow considering they were hotel beds. I had no problems sleeping in them, but if you are used to...

The hotel is a little far from the Central Station where we arrived but we used Uber and the cost was about 13 Euro from the Central Station to this hotel. The day we left the breakfast was opened earlier for us just to be able to catch the bus for the airport. The brakfast is the best I have...

We needed a place for one night, conveniently located for what we were going to do, and this was our choice. Turned out fine. I generally judge hotels by four criteria: the room/bed, cleanliness, the bathroom, and breakfast. The room was clean, the bed very comfortable. The room was not big, but I don't care. The bathroom felt fresh and...

Well situated hotel for our purpose during this visit. Walking distance to Djurgården and several nice restaurants in the area. The hotel itself is ok. Clean well organized rooms with coffee and tea in the room. Breakfast was simple and very good but the breakfast area was way to small and gave a stressful feeling and a lot of time...

Dear Knut, Thank you very much for a nice and well-written review! I am sorry that the breakfast area gave a stressfull feeling.

This hotel is located on a quiet street a 15min walk from the center of the city. Our room was small tidy and clean, and the breakfast was average, no parking is available so be prepared to drive around the block to find one.

The hotel is situated close to the Metro which makes it easy to get around. The staff were friendly and helpful. It is always good when a hotel can store you luggage after check out.

The location is very close to Karlaplan metro station which makes it easy to get around and adjacent to a small shopping mall of about 30 shops.

This is a nice hotel for tourists if you don't plan to spend a lot of time in the room. It's very reasonably priced and it's in a nice area of Stockholm. By "nice," I mean, a really good, upscale neighborhood. It's right up the street from Karlavagen which I'd compare to Park Avenue in New York City. It's not...

Stockholm at Christmas is a joy to behold! Soft white lighted candles and stars in every window, classy evergreen decorations and snow underfoot glittering like a million diamonds.

Up the red carpet covered steps into the brilliantly lit lobby...
