The last night of our Sweden trip was also our second stay in a Connect hotel (Connect city Stockholm being the first one). The Connect Arlanda is one of the less expensive options close to Arlanda airport (which means it is inappropriate for visiting central Stockholm as the airport is far away from the city). Although the hotel is generally ok, there are a considerable number of flaws.
The hotel is not part of the official airport shuttle service and organises an airport shuttle of its own. Although it worked fine for us in the end, the service does not run very frequently and only during limited hours in the day (mornings and evenings). Outside these hours, shuttle has to be paid for which is really unpractical for an airport hotel.
The hotel is quite recent and generally gives a clean and modern impression. The reception also works as bar and the receptionists accordingly also take orders for food and drinks: although they are professional and working well, staff will easily find themselves a bit overwhelmed at busy times, in particular when the shuttle brings a full load of new guests having to check-in.
Our "large" room was not particularly large, was minimalist but modern and clean. The bathroom was large enough, modern and clean. The soundproofing of the room was quite poor however. Moreover, the hotel is located next to a busy motorway: if you need to sleep with an open window as we do (for air or coolness in the summer), this will mean a considerable noise level in the room and require earplugs for proper sleep.
The hotel further has no free Wi-Fi and no room service, and even the drinks we purchased at the bar/reception had to be consumed in the lobby as staff did not want to let us take our drinks to our room.
Overall, the level of accommodation was acceptable but still leaves much room for improvement, in particular in terms of noise level and service.
