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

My partner and I picked this hotel for our three-night weekend break mostly for it's affordable price and decent location. Initially I thought we'd use the T-bana to get there but it was a nice day so we walked and it's far closer to the centre of town than the map suggests! Within 10 minutes we were in the centre,...

Having stayed frequently in down town Stockholm I am fully aware how expensive these can be. So when a local work colleague booked me in the BirgerJarl for under 1000SK a night I wondered what sort of place I would find. But as others have reported the BirgerJarl is a modern , clean business hotel with a smart reception/ bar/... More

Can't speak highly enough of this hotel. Where to start... - Breakfast was amazing- all kinds of food available. A particular favourite was the waffle maker! - Staff couldn't do too much for us, made us feel welcome. - Very clean although don't expect a massive room.

Stayed here for a few nights. When I booked I was concerned that it might be too far from the centre of town, but this was not the case and also meant I stumbled across some great restaurants and bars in the local area. Overall the hotel is modern, clean, well equipped and the breakfast was great! The greatest aspect... More

The place is not bad, especially if you arrive with no expectations and all you need is a bed to crash after all day of exploring the city. The photos on main booking websites however are misleading. Except for the lobby and bar area next to it, the corridors and rooms aren' that fancy. At first they gave us an... More

After living for 16 years in Stockholm when we now come to visit, Hotel Birger Jarl is among our top choices. The central location without the noise, very good value for money and outstanding service by relaxed and happy people is for us a perfect combination. During our last visit we asked for a private arrangement and the team made... More
