    ni Comfortable Centrally Located Hotel

    We had a very nice stay. Except for room being a bit small, everything was quite nice. Especially loved the shower and breakfast was great.

    Still my favourite hotel anywhere in the world. The hotel has what you need. Rooms are good size and staff are excellent. Perfect location and the best breakfast you can have. Worth every penny.

    5/5 Excellent

    Excellent hotel in every respect. A clean, lovely and spacious room, good service. The aircon worked perfectly as well - this seems to be a recurring review point for many Stockholm hotels and we ourselves had a bad experience with this at a different hotel on a previous summer visit. The location in this area of Sodermalm is really perfect - it's safe, pretty and fashionable area of the city, with small independent shops and restaurants, not overly touristy, and a pleasant 10 mins walk to Gamla Stan, with direct bus and metro alternatives just outside. Great hotel in a great city. We will denitely go back.

    Stayed 8 nights in Aug 2019
