1 - Getting there. We stayed here in Sept 2017. Access from ARN airport is tricky - a drive through the countryside and a complicated drive to the hotel largely due to construction. We took a cab, so no worries there.
2 - Location. Perfect. You are on the outskirts of the city (behind you), but the bridge in front of you brings you to lovely Gamla Stan (Old Town). Also within walking distance to the ferries should you want to visit other islands. There are restuarants nearby (try the Blu Door right across the street), a supermarket, the Metro, the train station....all right there!
3 - Hotel - Lounges, bar, restaurant, gym, etc -
a) Lots of room in several lounges to hang out or have a drink or dinner that you brought in. Many of these spots have lovely views across the water to Gamla Stan. b) We ate at the restaurant one night and the ambiance was lovely, the food and service very good. One thing struck us as odd - instead of a bread basket, we were given a paper bag folded over at the top with several breads/crackers inside. Maybe it's a Swedish thing?? :)
c) Decent gym
d) The rooms were on the small side, but that is to be expected. They come equipped with a kettle and various teas/coffees and are certainly adequate, even if you have a lot of luggage.
e) There is a breakfast room that offers all of the traditional Swedish breakfast fare as well as typical western foods. We had so much fun trying everything!
f) Staff. I must say that the staff was helpful and extremely pleasant all the way around. I will call out Christian at the front desk who helped me with EVERYTHING, including how to get my not-so-great phone up and running. Thank you, Christian!!
Patryck at the front desk was also wonderful as was Eric in the bar.
We would absolutely stay here again! Sweden is lovely and I look forward to a return trip.
