Stockholm is expensive. Period. From the shocking price of a return ticket on the Arlanda express to the cost for a bottle of water at a 7-Eleven. This place is reasonable. It's clean, modern, well located and offers decent value. On a busy bustling corner, yes, so some noise. But it's not misrepresented. Nothing worse than arriving at a place... More

This was my first visit to Stockholm, so I can't compare with other city offerings, but I was impressed from the outset. An Impressive and active foyer with efficient and welcoming reception staff was a good start. It was a well equipped room, although drinks facilities would have been nice. The desk was easy to work at with plenty of... More

The building may be restored but it doesn't evoke any grandeur of olden days. If only they didn't cram so many rooms perhaps it could've been grand indeed. The room is small - as is typically the case in Scandanavia. Breakfast is ok. I thought is was more than ok given the rumor that I heard. Spread wise maybe but... More

The hotel is in a older building but completely redone inside with modern Scandinavian decor. Our room was small but had everything we needed except air conditioning. We were there during intense heat and they gave us a fan which helped greatly. The location allowed us to walk throughout the core area, Gamla Stan, the waterfront, the townhall and back... More

In early August, we stayed at the Scandic four nights prior to our Regent Cruise so that we could tour Stockholm. At first, they tried to put us in the basement. After a very short time, I was overcome by a strange odor and began to feel ill. After being told by the desk clerk there were no more rooms,... More

For such a pricey hotel, this was one of the least pleasant experiences we had in Scandinavia. Small modern rooms where a double bed was actually two singles pushed together, the breakfast area was like a competitive war zone, and the front desk staff was charmless and unhelpful. If we had not been booked here by the cruise line (Windstar)... More

Just a block from the train station, this hotel is very convenient for either walking or taking transit to Stockholm's sights. Service was very good -- in particular, being able to store luggage at no cost (but do tip). Breakfast had a variety of choices, with good quality. The real downside for us was our tiny room; the beds were... More

Our stay at this hotel was not pleasant, reception staff treated us as a nuisance, the rooms are small and uncomfortable, ours was noisy from the street all hours, hot, with poor a/c poorly equipped and furnished, one office type chair, no fridge, thin mattress, just a really awful place to stay before joining our cruise, their choice definitely not...

The location of The Grand Central is undoubtedly CENTRAL! You can go almost everywhere on foot and there is a lift leading you down to Arlanda express train next door- very convenient! But there is more to it than that. Although it is housed in a big classic building, the decoration inside feels fresh and trendy . We were very... More
