Upon entering the lobby, the atmosphere feels more like that of an old cinema or theatre, which is what the hotel used to be at some point in its century-ling history. The reception is straight up ahead and two staircases go off at either side up to the rooms. On the ground floor you'll find the restaurant and bar, which are pleasant places to spend time in. The hotel doesn't feel as cosy or intimate as a small boutique hotel; but it's a good option if you like being left to yourself, without staff intruding. The hotel originally opened in 1908 and has been a hotel ever since. It was taken over by the Scandic brand in 2009, when it underwent a complete renovation. You will find lots of original details, which give the hotel its particular charm, something a new-build hotel lacks. The details are dotted throughout the hotel, like the gold leaf reliefs that run along the walls up the staircase to the rooms. Overall the hotel has a pleasant andrelaxing atmopshere. The rooms are pleasant despite the small standards and superior plus rooms.
The most interesting aspect of the hotel is its 'four side' structure corresponding to the light at every quarter of a 24-hour day: morning, day, evening, night. That way guests can request a room according to the light of day they prefer.
Otherwise, in term of facilities, there is a gym, open 24 hours and free for guests.
