This is the latest check-in time I have experienced in quite a while (15:00). I can accept that, but when the room is still not ready when it should be its annoying. The service is a bit stiff and bordeline unfriendly, the rooms are small, but functional,The breakfast was average. All in all it's ok if you don't plan to... More

Very Good Breakfast which was very impressive. Room and bathroom was very small but tidy and clean. Overall a pretty average hotel room and very expensive. Internet is really bad in the room. We stayed in one of the 'cheaper' rooms which in comparison to the hostels I would recommend a hostel every time for a third of the price... More

We enjoyed a nice and comfortable time at this hotel; big spacious room with clean 70's style decor and furnitures. True Scandinavian feeling. The staff is very friendly and forthcoming. It's location is close to the subway and you can walk down the pedestrian shopping street straight into the center within 10min.

We have stayed here around half a dozen times. Each visit has been great - compact but extremely functional rooms, great facilities, good breakfast. Each staff member has been helpful and efficient. We shall definitely return.

I had a very enjoyable stay at the Birger Jarl over Easter to catch up with friends. The room was compact but very clean. Wet room/ shower room was good. Decor was modern Scandinavian minimalist. Just a few blocks from the T banna station so pretty central. Good breakfast included in the price with plenty of hot and cold foods... More

This is a stylishly decorated hotel in Scandinavian style. As one might expect in Sweden, rooms are very clean. We had one standard and one superior room, and they both have their pluses and minuses. Standard room is small, but functional. Pluses are a "real" double bed and a tub in the bathroom. However, the tub may be problematic for... More

My wife and I have stayed at the Birger Jarl once or twice every year for at least the last fifteen years, that should be a testimony in itself. The staff are always courteous, professional and helpful. The rooms are always well kept. The location is ideal for central Stockholm. We are due to visit again shortly and intend to... More

Starting from the positive things, staff is very helpful and the breakfast is first class. Loved the mornings in the nicely arranged dining area with the delicious breakfast (local specialties include different kinds of herrings and cinnamon buns). The buffet was regularly refilled, coffee was nice. The bad thing is unfortunately related to the rooms design. They differ a lot... More

A nice hotel in the city center within walking distance of any attraction. I got a renovated room and enjoyed the good bed and perfect breakfast. As someone who is not eating meat I missed the smoked salmon but no big deal. Internet for free and friendly and helpful staff. Will for sure come back soon.

Great value. Nice modern and very clean room. Was on 3rd floor and found it super quiet - couldn't believe how many people show up for breakfast! Breakfast was fantastic. Convenient location with a easy walk to central station or 3 minute walk to the tube station. Staff was all very friendly and helpful. Internet was the main problem, and... More
