Great hotel, property, rooms and restaurant. It's a very popular place too for tourists and locals. However the staff is very lean, and once has to wait a long time at the reception....as there is only .....one ....yes, one person most of the time at the reception....causing queues and delays.

The Hotel is completely different to what you see on their website. The seafront rooms would overlook the bay. And the refinery or whatever this industry is on the other side of the bay. But certainly not a nice view of the city of Stockholm. But anyway they won't give you a seafront room but a room overlooking the car...
