Great and convenient location, superb staff, several very good restaurants around, hotel bar Watson's was great. No complaints!!

Beautiful location in Mariatorget Square. Unique property with a great lounge and cocktail bar. Restaurant and breakfast were nice as well. I would highly recommend the rooms with balconies overlooking the square.

Felt very welcomed. Hotel was located close to many attractions.

The hotel is close to the subway station and seemed to be close to most sites we wanted to visit. The staff seemed happy to assist us with any request we had in English. The hotel and bar was busy every time we were in the lobby; maybe this is a popular place to hangout at? The two elevators seemed to be available with short wait times throughout the day. The breakfast was amazing. I would recommend ordering items off the menu for breakfast, like the French Toast and pancakes (amazing) through the servers. Otherwise, the scrambled eggs, bacon, fresh fruit, and assortment of cheese, cold meats, and breads left us full and happy. We found the free tea and coffee throughout the day to be a nice addition after a long visit in the city. The room was decently sized, the shower was great and I think the bathroom floors were maybe heated? The room itself seemed lacking in light sources, but was not much of issue for our stay. The thermostat took awhile to figure out. The "pillow menu" was nice feature to have for the room... I wanted to order and try them all! The beds were comfortable as well. I would recommend the hotel.

Sean, the concierge, and the rest of the staff could not have been more welcoming or friendly! It was the perfect hotel in the perfect location. The room was spacious and clean and had the best view of the park across the street. Sean from booking the hotel was fast in responses to email and helped us set up transportation from the airport to the hotel. The staff upon arrival was very welcoming and helpful with maps and general info. The restaurant was great as well. The morning complimentary breakfast was hot and delicious and plenty of options to pick from. Dinner the first night was terrific. The server we had (the one that ran the Boston Marathon - sorry, I don't remember the name) was terrific too. The older server on Sunday night though was not engaging at all. Would definitely stay here again! Thank you all for a terrific birthday getaway and the gift waiting in my room upon arrival!
