    Location was just minutes from the train station, although it was slightly challenging to pull luggage along the cobblestone streets. Breakfast was very nice! Reception was helpful in booking a taxi to the airport.

    Great location right in heart of gamla stan. Breakfast had a wide variety and was yummy. Staff helpful. Bed was very comfortable and received free upgrade to a king.

  • 6.0.Good

    As other viewers have said the location of this hotel is PERFECT for so much to so and see, I walked from central station to the hotel with my bag and the same when I left, it was easy. Check in was short and sweet, which is nice, the room was tight and small but this is Europe and Sweden is no exception, however the bed was an American Full size (for two adults) and no the room did not have a phone, a water kettle for tea or coffee, no mini refrigerator and oddly enough only one glass. While I did not come here for luxury the basic things lacked and while other reviewers raved about the breakfast I found it very lack luster once we were able to get a seat out of the maybe 20 tables in the restaurant that seated 2. Overall, it was good for two nights that we stayed with our main goal being get out and see things.

    Great location. Tram is next block and everything else is walking distance in the middle of old Stockholm. Rooms are on the smaller side but more than sufficient and comfortable. Breakfast is great. Staff are very helpful.
