Excellent location, very nice

Excellent location, very nice double en suite room. Breakfast was only for two hours and should include more vegetarian options and fish.

Comfortable Place near to the heart of Stockholm

The rooms were clean and neat. The smorgasbord breakfast included was an excellent way to start the day. Transportation via subway was nearby.

Buying a Stockholm card that provided unlimited transportation and museum fees was a real time saver. It eliminates the need to constantly have to deal with handling money.

Basic...

I don't need much when it comes to a hotel, because I am traveling to see the city, not where I sleep. So this place served it's purpose, although the staff made my trip less pleasant, which is unfortunate. The rooms are smaller than I have ever seen, the shower was over the toilette, the walls were paper thin and you could here everything the people were saying in the next room, and there was no way to keep things cold...i.e a fridge or ice machine. One night the only nice staff member did, was to let me keep a beer in his frideg, but that was the first and last time that any employee of this hotel was anything but rude and cold. The location is great for exploring everything, it just looks like you wouldn't want to walk outside alone at night. The breakfast was fantastic and the bed was really compfortable. I won't ever stay here again, but it's the cheapest of the safe and clean hotels in central Stockholm.

Good, cheap hotel

Initially, I thought the hotel was a little bit too far from the city center, but it's actually just 3 or 4 subway stops away, which takes maybe 5-10 minutes? It's not in a central location, but you can walk from Gamla Stan back to the hotel in about 30 minutes if you feel up to walking. Location-wise, there's really nothing much going on in the area except for a few restaurants/bars near the subway station, which is about 2 blocks from the hotel. The hotel itself is ok, a bit basic, but it's great for the price considering that breakfast is included. No gym, but there's a sauna that you can book for free. The room that I was given was on the first floor, and I swear it felt like I had to walk 5 minutes from the reception to get to my room, it was that far away. And it was tiny, but that's to be expected. The TV is still one of those tube ones (not flat screen), and you only get 8 channels, 3 of which are in English. What I didn't like was that since I was on the first floor, I had to keep the curtains closed because anyone walking outside could see inside the room, and a lot of people walk by. Bottom line, it's a good hotel if you're on a budget, but if you could afford to spend a little bit more, I'd recommend a hotel in Norrmalm.

Don't miss going to the Vasa Museum. It's a short walk and a ferry ride away (or a subway and tram ride away) from the hotel, and inside is a well-preserved 17th century warship that is just amazing to see. Plan to spend a couple of hours looking around, and then have lunch or dinner at the museum restaurant.

Believe the reviews they're true....

This hotel isn't worth the money unless you are a single college aged person. My husband and I found ourselves in the middle of lower class singles. In fact some were a bit scary. I did feel safe but not very comfortable around this area of town. It was a bit slummy and not very charming. As for the hotel...the front desk help were not as friendly as i would have hoped. I can see why other reviewers thought they were rude. The hotel was a bit run down and it reminded us of a cruise ship...long narrow corridors with wooden doors every 20ft. The rooms were small and our shower only had one door which caused the entire bathroom floor to be covered in water. (not fun when forget and you walk in for a midnight pee and your socks are completely soaked) the windows were bolted into the window frame which made for hot sweaty nights! When I called the front desk for help they said just pull, and went on to tell me they were the only ones in house so they couldn't send anyone to help us. The only things I can think of that were okay with this hotel was they had free wifi (be sure to ask for your code during check-in....they refused to tell it to me over the phone) and they had a nice breakfast. Other than that...I highly recommend staying north of central Stockholm. It's clean safe and charming....

EVERYTHING 100% NICE!!

after reading many other reviews, this place scared us, but the price made it necessary to take a chance...and we were NOT sorry that we did. Great location, clean and nice, attentive and helpful staff. From what I can tell, those complainers were just a bunch of spoiled rotten American tourists, the kind that make travel harder for the rest of us. This place was JUST FINE!
