"Comfortable hotel with easy access to University"
This hotel provided a good base for attending a conference at the University, one stop away on the metro but also a pleasant walk along the lakeside if you have 20 minutes to spare. Access to the main city is also quick and easy. I had a room on the 4th floor which was both quiet, comfortable and cheerful. A good breakfast is also available, with several local restuarants for dinner.
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?
Our general experience was really good. The lady who checked us in was really friendly and helpful. The hotel room was spacious and felt clean, bathroom good. No milk for tea in room but reception staff were happy to provide. Great choice for breakfast. The only small thing that let it down was the noise from the next room but this didn't impact our stay too much (noisy last thing at night/first thing in morning). Great location for airport (arlanda) bus. Nice relaxed location in terms of the city. It's a walk/tube ride to more lively areas.

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.
I picked this hotel for location. It was classic & charming. It was quite a small room but it was functional. I had been in 5 modern hotels prior to this one while in Sweden. This was a charming gem & I still appreciated it's lack of modern conveniences. Breakfast was on time and delicious. The staff was friendly, nice & professional. I had some issues with getting on wifi but it was my issue not theirs. The young lady was very patient who assisted me. I really appreciated that. I also am very grateful to the gentleman who assisted me when I arrived. He recommended that I visit The Vasamuseet and it superceded my expectations!
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.
