I had a long stay here for several weeks this December. It really is a lovely hotel, that falls neatly in the "boutique" category. In the middle of the Södermalm district, and if you like vibrancy and are not familiar with Stockholm this really is the area to stay for restaurants, coffee shops, and people atmosphere. Upmarket hipsters abound, sporting uber stylish beardage. And many a great bar (Oh man, try the Himlan skybar for an exey cocktail and stunning view - will write about that too).
Unless you prefer a far more touristy setting, olde-worlde charm, and strings of souvenir shops, in which case go for the old town (Gamla Stan).
Anyway, back to Nofo, only a 3 min walk from the underground station (Medborgarplatsen). Breakies are good. Staff friendly. The rooms are varied in decor (hence boutique), and whereas I started off in one at the top of the building, which was a little cramped and the decor was simple (think Ikea), I then moved to a very plush room lower down, which ticked all the boxes. Loved it.
I agree with other Tripadvisors' about the (apparently new decision) for lack of bathroom pampering accessories. A single pump dispenser soap. Not a great call - felt budget not boutique. These little things count in boutique hotels, especially when you are paying a boutique hotel price. Also a tad stingy on the pillows (a single person staying = 1 pillow). But these are minor points. Still a good find. Would stay again.
Oh, almost forgot - they don't do much in the way of dining (bar breakfast), though personally I prefer not to eat in hotels, and this is certainly a place where exploring is key, and plenty of great and varied restaurants to choose from. less
