We stayed for 3 nights in early September 2017. While booking with our travel agent a few months ago, I asked for a quiet room (away from elevators and street noise) and my request was granted. The room had a "view" of the courtyard near the rear, facing the apartment building next door. The room was very quiet but warm. I could not imagine staying here in a hot summer month without air conditioning or even a ceiling fan. This is why my overall rating is 4/5 (I would go 4.5 if that was an option). The elevated entryway led to a bedroom to the lower left and then a small sitting room with a TV, chairs and small refrigerator. The bathroom was to the right at entry door level.
The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Shout out to Maxwell who suggested that I walk a few blocks to pick up the rental car and walk back after returning the car later. I was just planning on taking a cab which would of cost me at least $25-$30 each way just to go less than a mile. He made sure we had space to park right in front as we loaded our bags.
We enjoyed the breakfast buffet every morning and it was excellent. We had dinner in the restaurant there one night and again the service and food was great. We also used the spa/sauna one evening for an hour and it was very clean and relaxing. Unfortunately the hot tub was out of service.
The location was great and a walk across the bridge got you to museums. There is also a boat dock right across the street that has torus of the waterways and a "hop on - hop off" water taxi service.
If I return to the Östermalm, I would stay there again (and ask for a fan if it is warm in the room).
