6/10 Good

OK Hotel in Center
Here were the positives: 1. Location is of the Old Town. 2. The breakfast was good and the guy running it was awesome. You could tell he really cared about his job and guests. 3. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Here were the negatives: 1. Rooms were really small. They are ok for one or two nights but anything more you will start to feel trapped. 2. Bathroom is small and awkward. I couldn't stand directly in front of the mirror because the toilet was in the way. 3. As usual with Scandic Hotels, no "Do not disturb" sign in the room so on the morning of my checkout, I had to ask for one at the front desk. 4. Weather outside was hot and the room was hotter. 5. Window looked directly into an office building across the street. Most of the time I had to keep the curtains closed. Combined with the small size of the room, this was depressing.

A little tired.
Good staff, although the hotel was a little worn and dated. Pleasant enough, but not sure I'd go back. Breakfast was v good and the chef was very helpful.

Excellent location in Gamla Stan and superb (included) breakfast. Room is very small but great bed and fantastic bathroom with real shower doors (to prevent water overflowing the floor as it does in most other "modern" hotels) made up for the difference. Recommended stay.

Very friendly staff. Check-in was quick, with a review of Covid status and some history of the country.

Clean room. Little uncomfortable and old sofa and tv in front of the sofa instead of the bed. So couldn't bother watch the tv. Very good location and good service.
