Stayed plenty of times here before and would stay again. Rooms at the back are generally quieter. Minor points for improvement: - room temp set at 26c was 'warm' welcome indeed - room service ignored the 'save the planet' sign and replaces towels on rack - reception misinformed a fellow guest about whether I was checked out

So, if you're expecting the best of scandinavian design and features.... Dont hold your breath! Now dont get me wrong, this hotel is perfectly reasonable. It's just unfortunately dated. I had a room with a sauna, lovely addition and I actually used it a few times. The "double" room I booked was actually 2 single beds, which moved ALOT on...

While the staff was very welcoming, helpful and ready to assist us with any problems or needs, the rest of the hostel was kind of drabby and sad. The standard rooms were decent in size, but bathroom light was so dim, the ceilng seemed ready to drop and had what looked like mold. I didn' t inspect closer opting for...
