Really enjoyed staying in this room. The room was perfect, comfortable bed and enjoyable bathroom. As an added bonus they had cool paintings of rock stars in the entrance. Also loved the drinks in the bar downstairs.

This chic boutique is perfectly located among the best restaurants and shopping. All tourist attractions are a short, beautiful walk away. The rooms are small but nicely decorated and comfortable. The breakfast is what you would expect. The bar (inside and outdoors) is fully of beautiful people, staff included. The whole experience had this well-traveled New Yorker feeling very much... More

Location is perfect for a stay in Stockholm, one is within close walking distance to all shops, bars and restaurants and also the tube. The hotel itself also has a bar which is popular amongst the young and trendy people of Stockholm. We had a double room with a large comfortable bed, the bathroom was small with only a shower...

Wonderful decoration and great location close to harbour and next to Tunnelbanen. We stayed 3 nights from Thursday and every evening and night there was massive party noise from the bar and the street. The room was hot and we had to open the windows at night. The party continued into the early morning. We could hear it loud and... More

This is a quirky but fun place. I like it. Great location. Very unique decor and a nice environment. Unusual layout but actually quite fun. This being where it is makes it a gem. The prices are often quite favorable.

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

Dear Higabove, You are absolutely right. We should have organised a smooth and smart move to a higher floor once we were informed by you. My deepest apologies. I have no answer why we did not. But I will certainly make sure that we all have learnt our lesson. Thanks to your comments. Should you ever consider giving us a... 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
