"Gorgeous hotel, faded elegance, great restaurant"
I love this hotel! You can smell the history. OK the rooms aren't the biggest and it's not so modern, but none of that matters. Its a wonderful historic feature of Stockholm life. The restaurant/bar is stunning and the Asian food is excellent. Treat yourself and stay at this institution. And the staff are wonderful!
My wife and I love this place. Friendly staff, beautiful building, and great food. Miss Clara has and unpretentious boutique feel. The rooms are a little small but are very cozy with their window seats and charming views. Be prepared to live out of your suitcase as there isn't a closet in the Superior Doubles Rooms. Great facilities as well. If we went back to Stockholm, we wouldn't even start to look at other hotels.
Clean, comfy, big & tasty breakfast, helpful staff, and you can walk all over from the hotel. Our triple room had plenty of space for me and my 2 teenagers, and my sister's double was small but fine. Easy walk from central train station and bus and metro stops. We would absolutely stay at Freys again!
The hotel was an ideal location for a family of four. We were close to the Arlanda train but also to the buses and Underground trains.
The staff were always polite and very helpful and the breakfast buffet was excellent... So much choice and attention to detail. We thoroughly enjoyed taking our time over breakfast before exploring Stockholm.
On a final note , the reception staff were wonderful when we left our passports in the room safe. They collected them for us and came to meet us to pass them so we could catch our flight. Outstanding service! We couldn't praise them wnough
The luxurious setting and relaxed atmosphere really made me feel that this was "My Stockholm Residence" as in the strapline. The temperature in the bedrooms can be adjusted to suit, before you leap into the comfy bed, with cotton sheets and plenty of pillows. It's worth jumping out of bed too though, breakfast being the definition of "the perfect hotel breakfast" where you can happily munch enough not to need lunch. And staff were happy to order in gluten free bread at no extra charge. I loved it so much I am booking another trip right now.
I recently spent a week at the Hotel Hellsten and couldn't fault it. From the wonderful and helpful staff to the four poster beds it was a pleasure to stay here. I got engaged whilst staying in Stockholm and the staff couldn't do enough to help me with the surprise arrangements, they helped me to book a romantic restaurant and gave us complimentary champagne to congratulate my fiance and I.
The breakfast buffet was good, plenty of fresh and hot food plus always staff about to help with requests and keep everything clean.
The bar is really cool and a nice place to relax after sightseeing, the bar guy was super nice and went out of his way to help us locate a local knitting shop that he felt we would enjoy.
I would highly recommend this hotel for it's rooms, location and customer service.
This is Stockholm’s city center, making it one of the most convenient places to stay. It’s home to the Central Station, Stockholm’s most famous park, Kungsträdgården, and Sergels Torg (think Times Square or Piccadilly Circus). The Royal Opera House and Hötorget symphony hall are also here. Shoppers flock to NK, Sweden's answer to Harrod's.
