It's clean and has a budget standard. If you're just looking for a bed this is more than good enough and with value for money. However, if you're looking for something extra this is probably not it. Wifi in the second floor is worthless. Breakfast is good!

My parents stayed here for some days last month and they loved the place. The people at reception and the restaurant were very friendly and attentive, the junior suite was functional and comfortable and the breakfast's buffet was big, varied and tasty. It's located in a quiet part of Vasastan and it takes only like 20 minutes walking to T-centralen.... More

I like this hotel. I've stayed here before and enjoyed it. My recent stay was good. Checking in was awesome. Great guy. Super friendly. He suggested upgrading from the Junior Suite I had booked to their "best room". We talked straight about it and I decided to go for it. The "best room" was nice. It was like an average... More

A fantastic hotel in a great location - perfect for exploring all that Stockholm has to offer. The staff were so helpful and polite and made for a lovely stay here. The breakfast was brilliant. Loads on offer to set you up for the day! The room we had (which we were kindly upgraded to) was all we could have... More

The breakfast buffet is the best I've ever had. Very big choice of diverse foods, everything fresh and delicious. I loved the pancakes with raspberry jam. It's a big... More

The Birger Jarl didn't disappoint at all. This was our home base to explore Stockholm from, and though it's not in the absolute center of goings-on, it's not far off, and not that long a walk. Even though it had construction going on during the time we were there, it was still a great stay, and very clean. We got... More

Stayed at the Hotel Birger Jarl for 6 nights (July 2015) - 2+1 boy 6y old in a room. Would stay here again for sure if we would be back to Stockholm again. Excellent service, friendly and very polite staff. Cleanness of top notch. Great buffet breakfast. Nice location.

Stayed here for 3 nights during a business trip to Stockholm.The hotel is quite well located a bit outside the center but still at a walking distance from everything. Furthermore, Odenplan subway station is close. Also, I found that the neighbouring parks are good for a evening jog or walk. I asked for a silent room, but got one that... More

This was the first trip to Stockholm for my husband and I. We chose the Birger Jarl as it was highly recommended on Trip Advisor and it definitely didn't disappoint. Room was well equipped, staff were friendly, choice at breakfast was great and the location was spot on for seeing the main sights. I would also highly recommend the restaurant... More

A quiet hotel, the rooms have a somewhat dated design and furniture, however the amenities are fine and the bed is comfortable. The lobby/bar/restaurant area is more modern than the rooms, and stayed relatively lively till late (11ish). It did its job well for a business trip.
