I booked this for a quick overnight stay between flights because it was the most reasonable (not cheap, mind you) hotel with a shuttle to Arlanda Airport. I had emailed prior to arrival about the shuttle and a very kind lady named Sandra Lakso replied with the info I requested.
I arrived during a snow storm and was greeted by Peder who quickly checked me in. What I didn't realize was that access to all rooms requires that you walk on a slippery incline with your luggage and then trudge through mini snow drifts. I'm sure this is lovely in the summer, but not ideal in the dead of winter.
The rooms (8 in a 2-story pre-fab building) reminded me of a summer camp I went to 50 years ago: rather rustically outdated, but perfectly adequate for a night. The bed was small, but comfy, the desk adequate, but the hands-down best piece of furniture in the room was the IKEA easy chair. The bathroom was more up to date, but had a shower that leaked all over the floor. The heater took a while to warm up, but eventually got to a reasonably toasty temperature. The wifi worked well and the TV had a few international channels.
The morning breakfast was a somewhat rudimentary, but a perfectly sufficient start to the day. I was pleased to see Swedish oat milk on offer as well as the regular variety.
All in all, a reasonably-priced hotel (for Sweden) near Arlanda with a friendly staff. Just have good footwear for winter stays. less
