Location and service
There was no bathroom soap and the soap pump was not working
Beautiful, clean, comfortable. Spacious rooms. Great friendly and helpful staff. Location is great too
This is a stylish hotel. The staff were very helpful and courteous. The bars and bistro downstairs are first class. The breakfast has a reasonable range but the staff in the morning are delightful. Our room faced the rear of the hotel, overlooking very quiet apartments and screened by a large tree - we were able to open the windows and had a very comfortable stay.
Massive infrastructure works are underway at Slussen which makes getting from Sodermalm to the old city quite difficult.
Very thoughtful. Attention to small details made all the difference. Stayed at maaaaaany hotels & that’s the first review I’ve written. Recommend!
Staff were great. Bar staff and front desk staff were consistently friendly, welcoming and helpful. Room was fantastic. Very spacious. Great bath tub. Nice amenities. Beautiful view over the park. Awesome location.
Breakfast staff could be more proactive with serving items off the menu.
