Good hotel. Calm, quiet, clean and comfortable. In the heart of Stockholm so short and easy access to most places. Good prices for a hotel in the middle of the city district. Nice jazz music at thursdays and ok breakfast.

The hotel is right across the bus station - we decided to stay here for a night as we had to leave for an early flight from Arlanda airport and the Flybussarna bus departs from here. It seems as if all the rooms are in a basement. Our room had no windows, but otherwise had everything we needed. The space... More

Dear Ucanonico, thank you for your review! All our rooms are actually on floor 3 in the house, but as the entrance is on floor 4 (as it is on a bridge) you can get the feeling that the rooms are in the basement - but we assure you that that's not the case :). Welcome back! More

Good quality breakfast with real orange juice and fresh bread! Suite with jacuzzi was large enough for our 4 person family, we even slept in large bed with our kids. Sauna was also OK and staff was very helpful. No bad thing to say. Peaceful area o city center. Would go again :)

Hello, The hotel is located 1 floor below the street level. Very close to the station, breakfast is good/OK. However make sure you reserve a room with at least a window. Rooms are small and bathroom floor is actually a shower floor. May be a good alternative compared to price. They offer free coffee tea all day. Also fast internet.

I mentioned lack of Windows, but the omission of Windows would be correct :-) Anyway - location is excellent for the train and bus station which is great as most visitors will arrive in Stockholm via these two routes. Check-in was quick and easy and the staff were very helpful. The majority of rooms were downstairs and reminiscent of being... More

Hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was plentiful if not a little canteen style with a tray. Small bar area near reception has a reasonable selection for a quick drink. Rooms were under ground which was a little strange, they are clean and tidy but having no windows was a strange and a bit claustrophobic. I would... More

Hotel is situated very close to the central station. Nice decoration for the hall and breakfast room. Breakfast is nice with fresh orange juice and is very well furnished. Though the room are not what I could call cosy. In the basement, in an extra long corridor (former prison) you will find a no-window monk room which is quite disappointing.... More

Nice clean, modern hotel. Great breakfast. Unrivalled location 50m from station and Arlanda express. But small room, terrible view, Windows don't open. For £150 a night I felt a little odd... Would use again however.

Got a room in a floor that was all below ground like some kind of prison bunker . Very basic , like a hostel . Ok if it's very cheap but otherwise verges on unpleasant . This was not flagged at time of booking . Maybe there are some nicer rooms . Reception staff were very friendly .

Dear Phil, thank you for your review! We can assure you that all our rooms are above ground. As our entrance is on a bridge - you actually enter the hotel on the 4th floor and that's why most rooms are one floor down from the front desk - even the ones with windows. How did you make your reservation?... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for one night in Stockholm before heading home the next day. I booked a room without window so this was no surprise to us when we arrived. However, we both agreed that this was okay for one night and one night only. So if you are looking for a basic and affordable hotel in... More

“Accept only a room with a window!!! It might save your life.”
  • A maze with hundreds of feet of corridors and cross corridors
  • Quite the view...fortunately Swedish trains operate quieter than most
  • Basement windows overlooking rail yard construction
  • Maze of room cubes arranged much like a container terminal at the harbour
