A bit expensive for what you get
I liked the hotel. I really did. It had a lot of personality, it was very quiet, and the location was pretty good (close to a mall and a subway stop, about 20 minutes from Skansen and about 30 minutes from Gamla Stan). There were a few issues however. First of all, the room itself was rather small. No room even to walk around. Second, no air-conditioner or refrigerator. That's not a bad thing, just something that I personally look for in a room. The breakfast buffet was okay, but not worth the money I paid for it. Finally, whoever was cleaning the room did a very half-hearted job. They made the bed and that was it - nothing else. They didn't even wipe down the sink a single time in my five day stay. Not a bad hotel, but even for expensive Sweden, I don't think it was necessarily worth the price.

Good hotel overall
Location, food
Generally good except that the room could be improved with a proper closet to hang clothes. Not perfect for a long stay.

Nice hotel with a great breakfast.
The food, location to public transport, location in the city.
I enjoyed my time at the hotel, although I wish I had more time there. The staff was friendly and helped me make some choices for sightseeing. It was located close to train/bus stops and not a far walk from some beautiful parks. I would definitely stay here again in the future.

Very expensive, included breakfast and dinner
breakfast, tidy room, close to metro
When I booked this, this hotel was the one of cheapest in Stockholm that had Internet and had a reasonable rating. It was still very expensive. The dinner was included, but to our surprise, when we arrived they said we could have breakfast included too. Dinner was a poor quality self-serve dinner. Two of the 3 nights all I had was a cheese, tomato and cucumber sandwich as I didn't eat the meat served and that was the only other thing available. Breakfast had much more variety. Internet was slow (sometimes non-existent), no kettle included (had to ask for one) and bed was two single beds pushed together. Comfortable, but two metro stops from centre of town, so in my opinion, we could have done better.
