This is a classy old property right next door to Millesgården. Basically the proximity to Millesgården is the main reason to stay here. Nothing special in the new building/ extension. Breakfast was typical. All in all, we had a pretty good stay

I had some points to redeem and thought it might be nice to take advantage of them before they expired. I choose Foresta in part because of the location, thinking of the nearness to water (and to Millesgården - however that's another review!) and nice walks but also because the building itself is steeped in history. for instance the Beatles...

I stayed here in August 2014 on business and I would say that my overall impression of the hotel was really good. From the outset I will say this hotel is not central, but to be honest that isn't really an issue as the transport to get into the city is really easy and quick, I would say no more... More

We stayed in the presidential suite. Beautiful room with a nice bathroom, great views and lot's of space. The room is not in perfect condition and could use some paint but the overall feeling was very possitive. The second sofa bed was fine for our daughter but maybe not ideal for an adult. Breakfast was fine with enough choice but... More

One of my favorite hotel in Stockholm. Amazing view, big rooms, perfect breakfast, helpful and nice stuff, perfect location for those who likes silent and comfort. It takes only 10 min to get into the center of the city by subway or 25 min by bus. Would gladly recommend this hotel to everyone who would like to live in the... More

This hotel has a certain reputation to live up to being known as the hotel of choice for businesspeople, but I have to say it doesn't quite live up to expectations. First of all, the web site states "15 minutes from central Stockholm". Maybe by car. If you travel by public transport you'll need to take both a bus and... More

The hotel is across a bridge from down town area. Break fast, lunch and dinner was very good. Rooms are good. Training room was small with not so much equipment. As a conference hotel or for business trips it worksgood. For vacation it a bit "off sited"

Great hotel, property, rooms and restaurant. It's a very popular place too for tourists and locals. However the staff is very lean, and once has to wait a long time at the reception....as there is only .....one ....yes, one person most of the time at the reception....causing queues and delays.
