This hotel was chosen as a relaxing venue as the final part of a three-stage trip to Scandinavia. The hotel group provides a '100% satisfaction guarantee'. However, due to the noise of the fashion show being held in marquees in the adjoining grounds and the fact that, on our first night we were given a room with a connecting door, we only had to pay for 5 nights of our 7-night stay.
This is a very good hotel to stay at but I would recommend avoiding booking during the annual fashion show unless you do not intend to go to bed before 1:00 a.m.
Myself and my sister stayed for a week at the First Solna Hotel. Though the hotel was a little bit further from the centre of Stockholm, it was well worth it. The hotel was reasonably priced and included most of the amenities we were looking for.
We liked the fact that the First Solna Hotel had a 24/7 manned service desk with friendly and knowledgable staff. All of the hotel employees also spoke English which was helpful for us. We also felt safe and secure ensured at the hotel as guests were required to use a key card to enter the hotel. Though the area around the hotel was not very appealing, the location was actually great, and very safe.
The room was a fair size compared to other European hotels, with comfortable beds that were made up daily. We also had a desk and television set that broadcasted channels in both English and Swedish. The bathroom was a good size for two people, and was cleaned on a daily basis, with towels being changed as frequently as you requested.
The hotel also included free wifi and continental breakfast. The wifi was easy to connect to on multiple devices. Breakfast was always served at a reasonable hour and offered a lot of selection.
The walk to the subway station was only 8 minutes, and the ride into Gamla Stan took 11 minutes.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a quiet spot to relax after a busy day in the city.
Solna is located in the Stockholm metropolitan area, within 4 km of central Stockholm. The area is a large centre of employment because of the large number of businesses and medical establishments located there. Hagaparken is a large nature park on Lake Brunnsviken, and contains Haga Castle and King Gustav III's pavilion.
