This is an old apartment block that has been converted into a hotel. It is centrally located. Less than 5 minutes walking distance to Stortorget and the city centre.

The hotel is very basic. The room was spacious with a sterile feeling bathroom. Nothing "homey" or cozy about this place at all. The TV was an old piece of equipment that didn't really work properly. We had to get the TV exchanged. The hotel doesn't have satellite TV so the channels are limited. No CNN or BBC.

While we were there the temperature averaged 24-30C and the room got unbearably hot. There was no air-conditioning in the room and the ventilation was bad.

Their breakfast was nice with a wide variety of breads, cold cuts, vegetables and fruits. We were there in high season so by the time we got up to have breakfast around 9 am, most things were finished. We stayed at the hotel for a total of 10 days and we noticed that the breakfast buffet wasn't really replenished. So first come first served. Imagine that after all the families with children had devoured the buffet.

The "common room" had free tea and coffee 24/7. No tea and coffee facilities in the room and no room service. Free Swedish newspapers available. Free internet, fax and photocopy facilities. To access the internet in the room was a nightmare. Slow access and sometimes no connectivity at all. We had to get a new login and password from the reception everyday in order to use the wireless in the room.

The reception staff was friendly but very unprofessional. The breakfast staff didnt even acknowledge the guests.

The website is misleading. It brought our expectations up and their rates are not worth it (although it was a special). We wouldn't stay here again.

  • Liked — The breakast, whenever it was replenished.
  • Disliked — The sterile hospital feel of the bathroom

The hotel used to be a apartment building for shipyard workers and even though it has gone through several renovations, there is still the apartment complex feeling in the building. The corridors are awful the stairs and elevators not worthy a hotel. The room layout is weird, but I read in the guide it is because all the rooms used to have a small kitchen, now removed. The hotel gave me a cramped feeling of being kept there against my will, which is not what I look for when paying 1400 SEK for a standard room. The outside of the building is currently under renovation so when I got up in the morning there was a man standing outside my window - on the fourth floor - looking in. Not very pleasant. Breakfast was ok, but not the high standard you get used to when travelling in Sweden. Location is very good, 5 minutes from the central station, but still i do not recommed staying here, there are dozens of better hotels with equally good location and better price.

I stayed at this hotel at the end of July 2007 (been travelling since so first chance i've had to write a review). We chose it principly because it was cheap. I was suitably pleased, that whilst it was cheap, the room was very nice (been revamped very recently) as was the lounge/reception.

The staff were helpful, the breakfast was good, and the hotel is central to the train station and the little and big squares (5min walk).

If you want cheap, conveniant, good quality - then this is for you.

The corridors are very strange - but don't let that put you off!

I stayed here for three nights in August 2007; the location of the hotel is rather central and is a 5-10 minute walk from the main station.

From the past reviews I have read on here states the hotel was in need of repair, it would seem during 2007 there is a lot of renovations taking place, all the rooms have been modernised and they are very Swedish looking, good beds and lots of space. The bathrooms are all new and modern with great power showers. The only think lacking is air conditioning and there is no mini fridge in the room which lets it down being the height of the summer.

The majority of the rest of the hotel is old fashioned, a brick walled corridor and the carpet looks like it needed changing a couple of years ago, same with the stairwell, it kind of still has the feel of what it would have been like in the 1970’s when it was apartments for people in the Navy. The bar, breakfast area and reception have all been renovated and it looks nice. They say the full renovations will be complete this year.

Wireless internet in rooms is reasonably priced at 120 SEK a day but there is no free internet access in the lobby, and the price charged is very expensive to use the computer there, my advice for people needing internet access is go to the central station where 30 SEK will get you 90 minutes.

Overall it’s a good hotel for the price and location and it serves a good breakfast. The staff are all very friendly so you cannot go wrong with staying here. I would certainly stay here again with no hesitations.

Stayed August 2007
