I thought I was being smart, staying at a cheap hotel, at a Stockholm suburb I've never been to before, Järva. But there were surprises...
The first surprise was negative. At this in-the-middle-of-nowhere you suddenly had to pay 15€ for parking. WTF. Plus getting to and out of the garage was a pain, several different pin codes to give, not right next to the hotel, etc.
Fortunately, the second surprise was positive! I had thought there was no sauna, but there was one after all. Excellent.
Pretty basic, a part of the gym, but quite hot & very Finnish-like sauna. Nice.
The Saunablogger.cool site rates various saunas we visit on a scale of 1 to 10. This one is a 7. Very good sauna, but obviously no pool, not separate from the gym, somewhat inconvenient to get to the changing rooms afterwards, etc. But for a small hotel sauna, this is a good result!
The hotel had also interesting signage, pointing (quite correctly) that certain rooms can be reached across multiple paths. Equal-cost multipath routing in action!
Overall, Ibis Style hotel in Järva was a decent experience.
