The restaurant at the top of the hotel towards the south offers fantastic views over Harbour. The conference rooms also offer great views, although some have a somewhat dated fit-out. The lunch buffet was ok. I did not try the alla carte menu, but it looked good.

Second time I ran Lidingöloppet and we tried to get closer to the event-site. Location is good the only bad this is that you cannot get on the free bus connection between Ropsten and the event. The hotel itself feels worn-down, the common areas especially. The rooms are good size and clean. The resturant was too small and overcrouded in... More

Departing early the next morning, no offer of breakfast take away. Bad air quality in the room due to the closed windows. Parking cars facing the window outside. Shrinking carpet covers a dried smelly cloth. A lady receptionist performed that she was troubled, and had no patience to help. 无早餐打包服务,尽管早出发。房间窗户不能打开,即使市内空气质量很差。窗外一米处是停泊的车辆,即使住在三楼。褶皱的地毯下暗藏着一块已经干掉了的发霉的布。一位女前台服务很被动,而且给人的感觉是她被别人打扰了。

At first, this hotel seemed like it was going to be a bit distant from the happenings of Stockholm. The public transit system is super easy, though. Ask at the front desk for directions down the winding path to the nearest train station. It's a pleasant walk and the train comes frequently. Zip across the water, to your waiting transfer,... More

Splendid view overlooking the water and Lidingö bridge. Spacious room, quality beds. Friendly and efficient services. Access to city center is easier than it may seem: 5 min downhill walk to tramway stop "Torsvik", 3 min ride to metro station "Ropsten" on the red line, tramway departs every 20 min.
