    Very good

    The hotel was very central, all the staff in reception were friendly efficient and attentive. There was a great selection at breakfast and even though it was busy, nothing was lacking.

    I would really have liked coffee and a kettle in the room. It was not very relaxing at the end of a long day that one needed to make oneself presentable for a trip to the foyer to get a warm drink. Most hotels offer this service. If I was aware of this lack I would have brought a kettle, coffee and teabags from home or booked elsewhere.

    Always a great breakfast buffet. Pleasant staff, great location a stone's throw from everything. I like the effort put in to creating a red theme.

    Could hear outside noise in the evenings even though I was on the 4th floor. A heavy curtain may solve that. (I was there a Thursday and Friday night and is there is a bar across the street). Otherwise it was only small details to worry about: I had to unplug the fridge to stop the hum & the showerhead was loose. A pity you can't visit the rooftop terrace to enjoy the view.

    Very good

    The location was exceptional, at walking distance from all the important parts of the town to visit. Rich breakfast. They allowed us to pay not immediately, but after we could change the euros (the exchange offices were closed since it was Christmas).

    They were not accurate in remaking the room.

    Very good

    Excellent location at the Avenyen for events like conserts, theater, shopping etc with Euro Car Parkhouse near by.

    There were a lack of space in the breakfast-room on sunday morning. Annoying with people stressing around looking for a free table and too much noise. Butter for bread (in butter dishes!) were all gone and butterknifes were besmeared. The elevator stop is directly in the breakfastroom and people are queueing up in front of it while people have their breakfast.The planning/layout of the breakfastroom is hardly a happy one - it`s a problem when the place is crammed.

    Good breakfast & good location & friendly and considerate reception staff.

    Overall my stay was disappointing as hotel claims to be 4 star rating on Booked.net and was clearly not. Had hotel been marked as 3-star my stay would probably have met my expectations. Reasons why not a 4 star: -> no room in lobby to sit and have a coffee (was refused to sit at the lounge dining room tables for even 10minutes when there was nobody sitting there) -> Bathroom was a bit dated and slightly tatty (shower head was falling off bracket, quality of fittings was not 4-star). -> No coffee or tea facilities in room (4-star?? -> 2-star) -> Too basic facilities in toilet -> no good quality soaps or shampoo -> No fresh orange juice at breakfast -> Insufficient towels (had to request from lobby) -> I had expected a sauna (although I did not check facilities information to confirm, however as hotel was a Swedish 4-star hotel I presumed there would be one)

    Location and the breakfast. Great with greens for breakfast.

    The television should have been abel to turn, since it was totally wrong angel. A lot of voice from the street. Had to keep the window open since it was too warm in the night. Small bed.

    Good

    Staff at the reception was very nice (at the bar they were not!).The theme of the hotel "ruby" gave it a nice touch, every room having a differente name around the topic red, ruby, scralet, etc. The top floor might be nice if it wasn't raining and cold.Breakfast was very nice.

    There was no rpivacy for the guests, as the lobby-bar-restaurant of the hotel was a bar-rstaurant open to the public in general and always very busy and noisy. The bar staff was badly trained and not frindly at all. In spite of staff at the reception desk being very friendly, we complained about our room frigo-bar not bein working and the temperature of the room (which we could not set at all!) was too cold, nothing happened until the end of our 6 nigth staying! We both came home with a big cold! Rooms were too small for a 4* hotel.
