Stayed here for 3 nights recently and booked upon tripadvisor recommendations and the fact that the No 1 hotel in Stockholm was within budget but having returned I feel that it is a bit overrated at the No 1 spot. The hotel is in a good location, close to the central terminal so only a few minutes walk off the train or bus from Arlanda. Also the hotel offer free wifi to guests which is a plus.
The rooms are clean and comfortable. Ours had a horrible view of a busy highway so if that matters make sure to request a room with a nice city view. A note for the girls the room layout meant that where the plugs were located you could not actually access a mirror to see what you were doing while blow drying your hair, a little inconvenient but maybe not the same setup in all rooms! Room was too hot at night even with air con turned to cool.
The buffet breakfast had lots of choice but it would not be a deciding factor for me in considering whether or not to book the hotel, unless you love a big fry up every morning its not worth it unless already included in the room rate.
I would not rush to recommend this hotel to friends or family, the hotel has a business feel to it and there is no charm about it and while its just beside the central station its not the most attractive part of town, in my opinion. The staff are friendly but I dont think there is anything special about this hotel.
