Hotel has an excellent location on stunning Strandvägen. The surrounding neighbourhood of Östermalm is great, beautiful and close to everything. Breakfast was nice, good quality and enough choices. I stayed in a single room with a big window facing a small courtyard, it was quiet and provided good sleep quality. Room was very small had a very worn floor and... More

The first floor lounge is decorated in late 19th early 20th century style, gives a Agatha Christie feeling, a great place to relax and socialize with the other guests of the hotel. The rooms are smaller than the looks on internet booking sites but still comfortable. The Coffee machine makes great brew and is accessible 24 hours.

I really enjoyed this hotel. The location is absolutely perfect right along the water. The rooms were small, clean, and comfortable. Breakfast was hearty and delicious. The price was right. Granted, the hotel takes up only a small part of the gracious old building in which it is housed. And yes, the rooms are definitely of a different era as... More

We stayed at the Esplanade for six days. The hotel is almost unchanged since its heyday, which was in the thirties. The decor and furnishings are all original. The only real change since then are the bathrooms, which are pushed into a corner area in the hallway. Necessity has meant raising the floor which can be quite treacherous, particularly at... More

The hotel is only a small part of the beautiful building seen on it's advertisement photo. The interior is beautiful but in need of refreshing. The traffic on the street below was very noisy both nights. The windows do not close properly to keep the noise away. At the same time the room felt stuffy in mid-June when the weather... More

I stayed at Hotel Esplanade this previous weekend on a quick sight-seeing trip to Stockholm. The hotel was located in a very convenient part of Stockholm, and within walking distance to most of the attractions and shopping areas. The hotel is very charming, although the decor is a bit dated. I think this is the perfect hotel if you are... More

The Hotel Explanade on first glance is very charming. Very old world, room very spacious, and close to all the action. The furnishings, although dated, were fine. This seemed like a good idea until nightfall. The hotel has no air conditioning (fine, no problem) but it was very warm and we needed to open the windows to sleep (again, fine,... More

After reading other trip advisor reviews my expectations on this hotel sank. After my 2-night stay with my 9-yearold son, I was delighted that our stay was a great one. And I think some of the reviews are unfair. This is an old building and you have to be able to take the charm that comes with that. For example,... More

I seldom rate hotels, but expected a 4 star hotel and experienced 2. Great location but the hotel needs a full renovation. Apparently they are choosing cheapest alternatives in everything from maintenance, furniture, repairs, service, breakfast (ok selection but low on quality). Moved to next door hotel Diplomat. A world of difference for a small extra payment. Expect to be... More
