It's a little out-of-the-way, but easily serviced by tram and bus. If you're visiting Skogskyrkogården, The Woodland Cemetery, it is ideally placed as it is already in the south. The area itself is not a tourist hive, but is therefore quieter, which is refreshing after a day in the crowds. Next door is an Apoteket - the Swedish equivalent of 'Boots' in the UK or CVS in the USA. Handy if you need some travel sickness medication. Best continental breakfast I've ever had; to even call it a 'continental breakfast' feels like an insult. The food was plentiful, nutritious, fresh, and quintessentially Swedish. For around £8-£9 it was more than enough to keep me going almost to dinner time. The pub - Pipes - is nothing special however, and being from Scotland, it was just a little bizarre. If they want to give a truly Scottish experience in that pub, I suggest adding at least one or two real Scottish ales, of which there are hundreds to choose from these days, and adding some Scottish (or British style) meals that aren't burgers or deep fried fish and chips. The Swedes do a marvelous turn with mash - just add some venison steaks or sausage, a bit of turnip, and you're done.

For the price - in Stockholm! - it was great. There are no views and it's basic, but it'd also quite funky, and the beds are comfortable, the showers are excellent and the staff are really nice. That's all we needed. For breakfast, we bought fresh and delicious bargain cardomom, almond and custard pastries in the supermarket just downstairs (only 25 SEK for 3). There's no kettle in the room so we took our own, but there is a hairdryer. However, the room was very stuffy in the unexpectedly glorious weather while we were there, and we were woken by builders nearby at 7.30am. Big tip for anyone travelling to Stockhom from Arlanda: buy an SL Access card at the airport and travel to the centre without paying extra for the Flybussarna coach or pricey Arlanda Exress train. Instead, take the 583 bus from the airport to Masta (about 15 mins), then the train from Masta to Arstaberg (stopping at various places in the north of the city and Stockhom Central en route), then change to the 22 tram and it's about 5 stops to Mårtensdal, which is right opposite Motel L. It takes about an hour door to door and it's included with the card - obviously it works in reverse, too and will save you 199 SEK each way!

Modern hotel, easy transportation to central areas

We stayed in family room - double bed plus bunk beds. Modern decor, comfy beds, good shower. Easy to get bus to Metro station for onward travel to central areas - Gamla Stan is beautiful. We used an SL Access Card for public transport - purchased and topped up at ICA supermarket, just a few doors down. Free self service tea and coffee available in huge lobby. Additional food and drinks can be purchased. A few restaurants and coffee shops nearby, but check opening hours. Excellent value as more central hotels were at least double what we paid, for similar standard. We travelled end of August for 4 nights.

Clean, Modern Hotel, close to City

Pros: Good value, easy to get to city centre. Bright.
Cons: The WiFi was terrible - both in the lobby and in the room. Forget Netflix/FaceTime, you're lucky if you can send a SnapChat.
Location: A modern block mix of offices and industrial. But there is a large IGA next door as well a a pub & pharmacy.
Good, clean hotel. Friendly staff.. Arrived at 14:30... but had to wait in lobby until 14:55 before we could check in at 3pm... "room wasn't ready". Room clean and compact with efficient use of space. Good size bed and big window. Great shower-room. Not too far from city centre - about 30min to T-Centralen. (Bus + metro). Didn't try the breakfast, so can't comment. The bar was OK - great bright lobby. Reasonable beverage prices. Free coffee in the lobby (no in-room facilities). Basic gym.

I stayed here after coming into Luton airport late that night, £18 uber from the airport. The area itself I felt uncomfortable in as the uber dropped us down a street as getting to the hotel by road isn't as you would expect as it's on an elevated road. The area was not nice at night groups of people carrying on in the streets. There was also no air conditioning which resulted in a poor sleep for me, if there was air conditioning or had it have been winter it would have been a great sleep. Pillows extremely soft, thick winter duvet (in summer) there was wifi and breakfast available but I didn't have time to try either. Luton train station is literally 2 mins walk away.

Well located hotel

Great hotel to stay in, easy access to public transport - tram stop by the front door. Next to a small supermarket. The room was very quiet and we did not hear any other guests. Fab breakfast with good non-dairy options. Would happily stay there again.
