I had a tiny but comfortable, charmingly decorated room--bathroom was right across the hall, and as far as I know no one else used it during my stay, even though the property was fully booked. The place was unbelievably quiet, the bed was comfortable, and the breakfast was delightful. The location is central--a few minutes' walk from tunnelbana T-Centralen and the central train station. I can't recommend it more highly.
To me, this place was a welcome surprise and relief from a usual hotel experience. With its history as a previous residence for nurses, this place still exudes a strongly church-inspired ambience. Rooms are spotless, but nostalgic, and bathrooms, which are often shared, are also spotless.
The general atmosphere is extremely calm and composed, as you would expect more from a seminar centre or monastery. Breakfast is a very good bufffet breakfast (beware, no cooked bacon & egg/ sausage here), served in cozy surroundings.
The views of Stockholm you can have from the hotel grounds are famous, and attract busloads of tourists. There is also a very nice restaurant with seemingly erratic opening hours across the courtyard the hotel is set in, so if someone is in no mood to venture all the way back into town for dinner, that is a nice option.
I might stay there again in future.
"In the center of Stockholm! In a quiet location!"
For an inexpensive hotel in a culturally rich city such as Stockholm, this hotel meets every need for any traveler: confortable accommodations, free breakfast, convenient location (close to armada express train), clean building, and a very nice helpful multi-lingual staff. My stay was perfect other than the little plumbing problem i had and my annoying neighbor.
The hotel is underground so it was hard to spot at first. It is very small with small rooms, which is to be expected in a bigger city.
Clean and tidy. Location was within walking distance of train, bars, shopping and restaurants. Also a short train ride from the central station. Breakfast was adequate, plenty of choices.
Overall a great experience, I would stay here again on my next trip!
We had a wonderful time at this hotel. It was fairly close to the city. We walked the distance a couple of times, but there is also a subway very nearby. The staff were friendly and gave us assistance for a late check-in. Breakfast was included and had an amazing variety of food available. Delicious.
The room itself was very small. It felt like we were in the cabin of a ship. However, it really didn't make our experience negative at all.
