Great Location

Hotel was nice and close to fast train station and shopping mall district. Good variety for breakfast but the wifi signal would fade depending where in room I was sitting. Overall, good value.

Well Postioned For Transport

To be honest I spent very little time in the hotel. A shower on arrival early after noon, got back to my room at midnight & left before 8am. The hotel is well postioned for the main rail station being a 5 minute walk away. Check in staff very friendlly and helpful. Yes, the room not the largest but I wasn't planning to spend much time in it. Would use this hotel again.

Central hotel

Friendly staff. Breakfast was good, pastrami sandwiches are a good way to start your day. Also had standard müsli, fruit, juices, . The location is by the central train station, which is across the street. The city was in the process of adding an escalator on the same side of the street. A majority of the new shops are a very short walk behind the hotel. The shower was neat in the fact it was almost separated from the bathroom, essential an enclave. It also had a towel dryer rack. The only downside is trash was picked up early and my room (there are many) was adjacent to this. This hotel is not very scenic, but both functional and practical. If getting a room try to get one on the outside of the circle (mine was on the inside).

The Arlanda Express gets you to the airport in ~20 min, and was ~$35. It is across the street and runs very frequently.

Very nice Anton

I was there for a handful of hours, waiting for an early train, so I can't really recommend most services there, but the clerk at the desk (Anton, I believe) was very affable, and flexible to my peculiar demands (a wake-up call and an early sandwich in the middle of the night). From on the location (near the train station) I'm assuming that's very appropriate.

Perfect for a single

Amenities: Free Wifi- They were having some technical issues while I was staying there due to a leaky roof. It was fixed within hours. Breakfast- As an American it was good. Not a traditional American Breakfast but what is the fun of traveling if you are not going to eat the local food. TV in room has about 10 of 20 channels in English. Location: It is about 30 seconds (not joking) from the Arlanda Express. Which was great for someone with an early morning flight. About 2 blocks from Central Station. About 3 blocks from Center of Stockholm, including shops, restaurants, etc. Room Cleanliness: No dust, no trash. I am really picky about this and it was amazing! Bathroom was cleaned daily. Room Comfort: Bed was so soft. It was a good size for one. Staff: Extremely nice. Value: If you are looking for an affordable, comfortable, and clean hotel this is it. Free coffee, tea and cookies in lobby. If I ever can get back to Stockholm I will be staying here again. I would recommend this to anyone.

undergoing renovation

The location is excellent, the staff are nice, the breakfast was good. But due to a faulty skylight, the lobby area is undergoing major, noisy renovation. And when it rained, the lobby flooded. My room looked out over the atrium -- and the noisy workers and their loud music. I would not recommend it until the renovations are complete.

A nice surprise

Since the hotel was quite inexpensive i did not expect much from it, but I was VERY pleasantly surprised. The rooms are very small but spotlessly clean and comfortable. The breakfast buffet was excellent and they even had breakfast available for people who had to leave earlier than the scheduled breakfast hours. The rooms face away from the busy street so they are quiet. The location is excellent - a few blocks to the train and bus terminals and within easy walking distance of many major sites. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I would certainly stay there again.
