So after reading reviews here about the hotel being noisy on the lower floors we requested a quiet room for 8 NIGHTS. What we got was room 215. A room not only over the music system till after midnight.... But over THE LOADING BAY. Trucks backing up early and a door that when it slams shut shakes the room. We... More

The Story is a great little hotel. Located on the southwestern edge of Ostermalm, it is within walking distance of most of Stockholm's sights. The rooms are quite comfortable and the decor is playful. The talking elevator is pretty amusing, one of my favorite features actually. The hotel bar is also pretty good. The staff was pleasant and helpful throughout... More

I stayed here for the two nights I was in Stockholm and must say that this a delightful hotel. It's as funky as anything but in fashioning the interior design they've managed to deliver something that is definitely individual without trying too hard and entering the territory of the ironic pastiche. My room was brilliant in all respects and the... More

If you feel cool and trendy, this amazing hotel is the one for you. Design- the nicest I ever seen, the vibe, the service- all top class. Room is beautiful, breakfast good, free wifi works ok. Location- amazing. Close to everything. Hotel bar is among the top in Stockholm. Simply the best!

The hotels located right beside the ostermalm subway stop really handy the area itself is great, lots of nice restaurants and places to see. Our room was like a sauna, there's no a/c in the rooms and we barely slept during the 3 days we stayed. We opened the window but were kept awake by numerous delivery vans and trucks... More

Story Hotel is right next to a subway stop in a great part of Stockholm. It was so easy to walk everywhere from the hotel or hop on the subway if it was further away. The "hip" aspect of this hotel could be a good or bad thing depending on your interest in hanging out at the bar downstairs. We... More

Bed: very comfortable! Space: limited. Water: super-high water pressure and great shower. Decor: gorgeous bathroom, fun wallpaper. TV: nice big flatscreen. Location: top notch! Free breakfast: the best sourdough bread in the world (yes, better than Paris' Poilane) every morning. We rented a "Friggebod" room for 8 days. No air conditioning which shouldn't be an issue in Stockholm except we... More

The hotel is very well presented with all the current trends - exposed plaster, vintage lifts etc. The rooms are very comfortable but with a few minor negatives: no dressing table mirror, no draws or shelves, no air con. If you're a light sleeper request to have a room over the "backyard" as opposed to the street which is very... More

I really wanted to give this hotel 5 stars but it didn't quite make it. From the moment we walked in we loved its quirky vibe. The staff were great and using the keyless code worked well. We were 3 adults and had a double room with attached sitting room with sofa bed. It was a great space, really attractively... More

Love the concept of the hotel. Very modern, funky and excellent location. Easy access to trams, buses and boats. The check in process is very simple and efficient - good, healthy breakfast and rooms are clean. My only complaint is that there is no air-conditioning - the room is rather hot, even though we had a large balcony room as... More
