I have never encountered such dirty room. Hair all over the bathroom and impossible to miss for the housekeeping staff. I booked a quite cheap room and for that price i dont except much but clean with a comfy bed was my expectation..... the bed was outdated and probably the worst i have slept in at a hotel.... How this...

Dear Rickard, Thank you for your review! Once again I am very sorry that your room was lacking cleaning. That is of course not acceptable for us and that is why we offered you an upgraded room with 50 % discount. I am glad that you are willing to give us another chance and hope you will enjoy your new...

I still cannot belive that I have paid the equivalent of more than 200 Euros for this small depressing, ugly bedroom with very basic facilities. This hotel clearly does not deserve its 4 stars. This so called "superior" room not only had the worst taste furniture, but also not even any drawer or board for cloth, Bathrooms amenities were 2...

Thank you for sharing your experience and thoughts about your stay. I am very sorry that you feel your stay was overpriced. As we work with dynamic pricing (like most hotels do) the prices can vary a lot depending on day of the week and demand in Stockholm. You was unfortunate to stay on a day when the demand was...

I like these hotels which has a odd floor-plan and where can assume all rooms are different. The winding corridor to the room even has odd steps up and down... I got a small room in the basement with really high ceiling and windows high up on the wall facing inwards. A big plus was the window opened, so I...

Single room 1 night. The pros: Location, situated near Karlaplan subway station, the hotel is located in a back street of one of Stockholm's more upmarket inner city suburbs Östermalm. As such you can have a quiet nights sleep and still be within walking distance of the crowds. The room itself was neat and tidy adhering to a boutique style...

Clean is the only good thing about this hotel. It's not close to anything you'd want to be near, the rooms in the basement are like staying in a dungeon with no light, no bathroom amenities, a big staircase at the front entrance with no ramp for luggage (nor a bellman to help) and the front desk told us the...

Stayed here for business one night, usually stays at another hotel in the area but it was fully booked this time. The room was small and the breakfast buffet could include wider range of food. The service was okay, not more or less.

London, United Kingdom
Reviewed 21 August 2016

Beware of advertised room descriptions such as "Queen" bed, "Bed size 140cms". "Queen" in UK if not elsewhere usually means "quite big but not as big as "King". Bed size in cms is unlikely to be correctly interpreted. Old-fashioned very small rooms with small beds withl only about 45 centimetres space each side of bed to the walls.

Dear Mr. Spinks, Thank you for taking your time and reviewing your stay with us! I am sorry that the room you stayed in did not meet your requirements. Fortunately we do offer different room types and have bed sizes that are King and also 240 cm wide which is probably the largest hotel beds in all of Stockholm. Welcome...
