I like the grandeur of this hotel, even though it may be a tad beyond its prime. The building itself is magnificent, and the atmosphere is wonderfully old-fashioned, with a wood-pannelled lobby room furnished with easy chairs on the first floor where you can sample a cup of coffee (available for free all through the day) while marvelling at the...

Returning to Esplanade was a true joy. A most wonderful "old classic" being so fresh! Absolutely lovely and pro Ladies at Reception helped with lost suitcase, storing Christmas presents, cabs, anything! Breakfast is stunning and the night time sandwiches a delight with excellent beer. The gentleman Housekeeper whose name I forgot who smilingly helped me with a last minute laundry... More

Hotel Espland is about to be rediscovered. This hotel has been kept a secret for 90 years. Basically all the original features including marble floors, fantastic woodwork, a great fireplace and maybe most unbelivably, located by the water in the center of Stockholm. It has a Royal Tannenbaum feel, it radiates true charm and it is original. Breakfast - great.... More

At some time I’m sure this was an excellent hotel, but alas that is some time ago now. The positive first, the staff is excellent. I booked directly, and it went flawlessly, as did all other contact with reception. And the location is also very good, central with everything you need within short walking distance. Once you go up the... More

We were booked into the Esplanade Hotel by the local university and it proved a comfortable and very convenient location. Although overlooking a busy road, the hotel is quiet and very tastefully furnished and decorated, mostly in Art Deco style. The reception staff were helpful and friendly and the breakfast excellent with lots of choices of cereals, bread, cheeses etc.,... More

3 night in this hotel while on a business trip. The room was not 100% clean and it smelled like the gutters, probably a old draining system. Small TV, broken key in the mini bar... to make it shot: not worthe the price. Too bad, because this hotel is very well located. It needs to be renovated or taken over... More

This was a hotel desperately requiring the visit and suggestions from one of the UK's TV's Hotel Inspector's . It had been in its heyday a very grand building both inside and out. A lack of refurbishment and small detail to furnishings, decoration and ambience now makes it a little unwelcoming and grim. The rooms are very large but cold... More

The hotel has a 19th century style. Seems like loads of old romances were writen on the first floor lobby, or even on the desk inside the bedroom. Even though, the reception is strange, or at least it didn't match with my expectations. But the people there were very nice and helpful, the breakfast was good, swedish style, and the... More

The Hotel Esplanade is my hotel of choice in Stockholm. I have been there several times and would always go back. It's interior is old, but well kept, and it almost feels like going back to visit grandma. The rooms are small, the ones without a street view are a little dark, perfect in the summer months, when it's hot... More

Guess it depends what rate you get , as this place is definitely not worth paying up for & 4* rating is pushing it a bit . However the fact it hasn't been touched for at least 30 years is quite charming and the room was clean and the bathroom functional. Breakfast pretty good & check in staff nice .... More
