"Historic mansion in a quiet neighborhood"
We stayed for three nights to see the sights of Stockholm. Getting here from Arlanda airport is easy. We took the Arlanda Express (2 for the price of one, Thursday-Sunday) to the central train station, then the T-bana to Zinkensdamm. Any red line stops here, so the trains are frequent. We bought three-day Acess passes, which paid of since you can ride any T, tram, bus, and even the ferry to Djurgarden. It is a short walk to the hotel, but note that there's no sign with the name of the hotel at the entrance, just a small sign at the back wall which is at the end of the street (exit left from the T stop, the immediately left on Brannkyrgatan to the end of the street, then uphill, the hotel is on your right, walk to the back and you'll see the gate. Buzz to get in. If you take the Hiss (elevator), just head right when you get out.) Check-in was easy, but the cobble-stone courtyard makes it hard to roll luggage. We got a cozy, quaint room with a king-sized four-poster bed overlooking the courtyard. The bathroom is clean and updated, but small, especially the toilet and sink. Our room was in a side building and quiet, we did not have problems with street noise or from other rooms but it seems to be on a flight path because we could hear planes flying over. We had been staying in larger hotels the previous two weeks, so breakfast seemed more limited, but has the essentials (assorted breads, eggs, cold meats, meatballs, cheeses, cereals, yoghurts, fruits, juices, coffee, tea).
