Because of a mess up with SAS wound up arriving at the hotel after 1 AM. Staff were accommodating of this late arrival. Overall rooms are nice, clean and updated. Neighborhood was safe and clean, with a good number of restaurants and supermarkets nearby. We walked to the downtown area every day and it took up about 30 minutes.
Very good breakfast included every morning.
Excellent food while you have a beautiful view on the river . A sense of history with an old Europe architecture coupled with the moder amenities you would expect of a modern day hotel. Staff is courteous and did I mention that the food is excellent?
This recently (November 2014) renovated hotel was a great place to stay. The room was nice and the staff was excellent! The morning breakfast was good and held me over until lunch time. I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a nice boutique hotel.
We stayed at this hotel in 2011 when it was the Hotel Gustav Vasa, and liked it well enough to return for a two-night stay in Stockholm in June 2015. The hotel is located in a quiet and attractive part of Stockholm, and is situated around the corner from the Odenplan metro stop (it's a short, four-stop metro ride to Gamla Stan). Now part of the Ibis chain, the rooms have been remodelled and updated. Our room was quite small, but was well-appointed. As is often the case with hotels in this price range, the bathroom was tiny (basically a shower stall with a toilet and sink). The buffet breakfast (included in our room rate) was excellent, and the staff was very friendly. We'd recomment the hotel and would stay there again.
Set back from Stockholm's harbor and Old Town, Vasatan is a trendy residential part of the city, with beautiful architecture and lush parks. It is known as the Off-Broadway of Stockholm for its many theaters.
