Editorial review:

This 1937 art deco hotel was remade by Abba legend Benny Andersson and has a pop-oriented design. It's a chic place and has a lively weekend bar scene. There's a café/bakery, the rooms are enjoyable, and the staff is young and efficient.

    Excellent concept with restaurant, cinema, bar etc. Very nice atmosphere.

    I liked the spacious room, that was clean and well equiped. The staff was freindly. I enjoyed the complimentary bottle of water next to the bed in the evening, the complementary coffee machine and the free films to collect at the reception.

    The staff were professional, friendly, and incredibly helpful. The rooms were well designed. One of the most outstanding aspects was the amount of storage space, which allowed us to stow our luggage and belongings, leaving the rest of the room uncluttered. remarkable!!!!!! Location was also great, being close to the train and t stations. The surrounding neighborhood was also quite charming, with a number of quality restaurants and cafes just minutes away.

    Great location. Friendly and helpful staff. Quirky but pleasant hotel. Unique due to Abba connection.Great cafe with freshly baked bread annexed to hotel.

    Limited menu for such a good hotel - my steak was not served hot. Otherwise food was good.

    Funky hotel, with friendly staff and very good food.

    Rooms although comfortable are very small - especially the bathroom.

  • Single

    I was on my own at the hotel while in Stockholm on a work related course. The staff made me feel very welcome and it was great to be able to eat at the hotel restaurant in the evenings. I felt very safe and comfortable during my stay.

    My room was very compact and felt a bit claustrophobic at first. Definitely too small for 2 people so glad I was on my own. I did get used to it though I was glad I was not staying longer than 4 nights.

    The breakfast. Don't understand why it only came with the 2nd morning though. The bar was great too. Passionfruit lemonade drink.

    This is a wonderful place to rest after a full day of exploring Stockholm. Great location, charming neighborhood, safe.easy to walk to old town. Bistro restaurants nearby for dinner, great cafe in hotel. Staff is very friendly & efficient. Modern design of hotel is appealing with clean renovated rooms.

    No internet facility. Expensive transport to airport 80US

    The interior had a real positive, modern and sparky feel. I liked the individual style of the place. Staff were attentive and customer focussed. I particularly enjoyed the staff in the restaurant and bar. They were very welcoming and cared about the quality of your dining experience. Food was delicious and a selection of quality wines was available. The location I thought was a great way to see and explore other areas of Stockholm on foot. The beautiful Mariatorget square at the front of the hotel is an absolute delight to wake up to in Summer with the sun shining on the fountain and flowers. It filled the senses! Loved it and I will come back.

    The ambiance, its closeness to central Stockholm, quiet location and it's boutique design. Owned and designed by Benny Andersen (ABBA!), Ii was the venue for the Mamma Mia film launch, and also close to the Steig Larsen Millenium trilogy of books (Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) area in Sodermalm, and where the first film was made. All in all, a wonderful place, great ambiance and great staff.
