We are a couple 46 and 52 - an age, where the quality of the bed matters. And this was definitely the big minus here: a bed that felt like a soft trampoline and gave us back aches all day long. Apart from that it's a great hotel. It's certainly not the fault of the hotel that the rubbish is... More

Stayed here December 2007 for 2 weeks for our honeymoon. Walk around the corner to the Royal Palace and the 13th century Storkyrkan (Stockholm cathedral) cathedral. Great location on Gamla Stan (the old island). Walk to everything, including the Grand Hotel for a traditional smorgasbord and the Nationalmuseum (art museum). The plunge pool and sauna in the old basement vault... More

perfect location for a getaway in Stockholm walking distance to a lot of things and a nice view of the water. Breakfast is big and you can stay full on that long in to the afternoon. Reception staff was going out of their way to help with any matter. I will def stay there again if I go back to... More

This hotel is absolutely gorgeous. Yes it is not top luxury because the building is old and a little tough to renovate and keep in tip top form- don't expect 5 star luxury but expect 5 star class. Staff are friendly and professional. Breakfast is amazingly put together and has a good choice and quality. Breakfast room is nice too... More

Reisen has an excellent location in Stockholm, and the first impression is rather good, as the hotel comes across in a modern way; also the restaurant is rather good. Rooms are however worn down and seems to be in need of a makeover.

We used this hotel as the base of our Stockholm explorations when we were here for our wedding - the whole wedding party stayed here. Everyone loved the hotel and thought it was gorgeous. Perfect location in a historic building. Friendly & accommodating staff, great breakfast, and lovely outdoor sitting area as well. All of the rooms that our group... More

A very nice hotel close to the water and the Stockholm old town. The staff was helpful and I specifically enjoyed the various bits and pieces of the delicious breakfast. The price was reasonable but I would have wishes for a bit bigger rooms. The beds were excellent though.

I can't give only 4/5 although the building itself deserves it at maximum (maybe better 3/5). Rooms are worn a lot, lifts smells a bit... What makes me to give 5/5 is location and staff. You can't find place at this price where You will be closer to Stockholm at its own beauty. Every direction from hotel You go, the... More
