For a hotel that is this close to public transport and the distance to the city center it offers a good deal. The clean rooms and the bathrooms are a bit small, but you shouldn't spend too much time there anyway, if you are in a lovely city like Stockholm. The breakfast is good, staff is friendly and apart from... More

I found this hotel on Trip Advisor and booked it because the price was reasonable (for Stockholm), the location is convenient, and it had the amenities I needed to be comfortable. Everything has been lovely! The room and the bathroom is small by US standards, but it's really quite fine and cozy. The bed is VERY comfortable. And the restaurant,... More

Stayed here 4 nights after finding a sale rate. Expectations were low knowing it was going to be a small 16 sq m room but found it was very well thought out and the designer made use of every square inch of space with shelving, inserts into the walls, etc. The shower though was a little bit strange with the...

The breakfast was the best thing in this hotel. Despite having booked a double bed room, we were suggested to put twin beds side by side and then offered another room with a proper double bed but at a higher price. All this with a rather bad attitude. So probably we will not return there.

Good location, close to the tunnelbana and local shops and cafes. Staff are helpful and friendly; rooms OK but nothing special. Excellent breakfast selection (although it can get a tad busy so go early or late); gym has been improved but sadly the sauna has gone. Why ? I remember it as a bit more 'personal' and less chain-like on... More

We visit Stockholm every year to see friends and do our Christmas shopping. We walk in the door at the Birger Jarl and say, "We're home!" That is exactly how we feel. We are treated like family by the staff. Our room is spotless and what can you say about the fabulous breakfast! What more can we say about a... More

I enjoyed my stay in the Birger Jarl. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was well laid out and the bed was comfortable. Wi-fi is free and easy to access it, and you can log on with more than one device at once, which is helpful. I enjoyed my meal in the restaurant, and my meal in the... More

Good location, close to shopping, dining, night life and Gamla Stan. We had one of their 'junior suites', which was very spacious and comfortable. Breakfast buffet was a dream for carnivores, I really couldn't have asked for more. I can't really give it five stars as there was nothing great about it, but it really is a very good place.

Good service, decent size room for Stockholm prices and good amenities: a simple but straightforward 4-star hotel. The room was modern and up to date, with basic fixtures. I've enjoyed the little design touch and layout of my double room. Bar and breakfast are great too.

Stayed here over the weekend with friends. We had a double room with an extra bed and I have to say that the extra bed was pretty hideous. I'm really not that picky, but someone else might be - so, if you care about your back or if your roommate is sensitive to squeaky noises, don't go here. Breakfast was... More
