The hotel is underground so it was hard to spot at first. It is very small with small rooms, which is to be expected in a bigger city.
Clean and tidy. Location was within walking distance of train, bars, shopping and restaurants. Also a short train ride from the central station. Breakfast was adequate, plenty of choices.
Overall a great experience, I would stay here again on my next trip!
This is the 2nd Scandic Hotel I’ve stayed in (previously in Berlin). It is well designed and perfect for a short trip. on Friday night there were 3 lively bars with a DJ. The hotel provided an excellent breakfast of hot and cold food. We ate in the restaurant/coffee shop one night and I had the best burger I’ve ever had in my life and they even provided a gluten free bun. I highly rate this hotel which also has a good (free) internet connection which enabled me to work during my stay.
This was my first time in Stockholm and sure enough, the city is so easy to walk through. The one thing you need to keep in mind is that the hotel is in Sodermalm, which is at least 30 minutes walking from Central Station. It took me an hour to find the hotel because it was behind a street that was being fixed up. If you take the metro, it is seriously right behind it. The staff was so helpful throughout my stay and recommended an excellent restaurant to me around the corner. My room was pretty small, but I really did not need anything because I was always up and about during my stay. I was concerned that I did not have a window...which is kind of unusual. Regardless of the room, the breakfast was varied and very fresh that included Pate (my favorite), yogurt, coffee, bread, and basically a smorgasbord of foodstuffs. Honestly, this was a very underrated hotel in my opinion and if you are out all day and night, then this hotel is for you.
This hotel in trendy Sodermalm is comprable to the Omena Hotel, but with a receptionist and a fantastic breakfast. Great place to stay, and while not in the centre of the city, it's a quick walk to two different metro stations. Loved the staff and our quick stopover here.
Stockholm is a city where budget travellers have to accept either no window or no bathroom - and often both. So this with its newly-renovated room AND bathroom was very good for the money even if I was occasionally wondering what time of day it was (still no window). It's not too far from Gamla Stan and although there's nothing much except a McDonalds in the immediate vicinity, it's within striking distance of everything and was a great choice for someone (me) who knew nothing about the city. Thery were still renovating my floor, which was noisy in the daytime, but then they have to do it sometime.
I only booked a night at this hotel but it didn't disappoint. For the price I paid I got more than I expected in terms of facilities. I suppose I can't complain about old looking facilities in a building that is old as well but very charming. Everything is basic but the staff at reception were friendly and spoke excellent English.
Once known as “Knife Söder” for its rough neighborhoods, Södermalm is now one of the trendiest parts of Stockholm with a thriving artist community. In the last few years, ABBA’s Benny has opened a boutique hotel here called Rival.
