Sweden is an expensive country, and the hotel rates reflect that. So for the rate you pay, this isn't a bad place, but there are several things to consider. First, the front desk is only manned part of the day, so if you arrive after 8pm you'll have to call the number on the front door to get the code for the little key vault on the door with your hotel/room key in it. The person did answer the phone promptly though and was courteous and spoke English well. The hotel is right across the street from the train station, but Swedish trains (at least here) don't make a lot of noise- none of that obnoxious whistle blowing like in the US but if you're a light sleeper it may be an issue for you. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean and while small, no smaller than most hotel rooms you'll find unless you spend a lot more money. However, there were no tissues (a minor point, but a notable absence), minimal towels, and no phone in the room which means no wake up calls though there was an alarm clock in the room. There was a flat screen tv and it was fine. Breakfast consisted of a few cold cuts and various clod cereals and rolls with slightly bitter tasting orange juice (coffee was available but I don't drink it so no info there, sorry). This is in stark contrast to most other Swedish hotels (even the ones in this same price range) where breakfast is a veritable feast with scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, and 8-10 other cold items standard. If you're nearby, ok for the money.
The secret of my discontent with my Sky Hotel Apartment experience is simple, it is not a hotel, it is an apartment block pretending to be a hotel. Yes it is in the name, the word Apartment, I just think it should be promoted as Sky Apartments, as it has no resemblance to a hotel.
