Hotels in Stockholm are expensive to begin with so this seemed like a good choice because the rooms looked nice and it was close to the train station. If you book the basic room, you will be placed in a musty, extremely outdated room. As we walked in, all I could say is, "This has got to be a joke."... More

I was very surprised when I came into my room!!! It was completely clean and very beautiful. I didn't expect to have such a great room for so low price!!! Girl on the reception was very nice and helpful. Also free breakfast was very good and tasty! I'm very satisfied amd I'll recommend this hotel to everyone.

Royal Start Hotel Stockholm is situated a couple of kilometers outside Stockholm center, while very close to Stockholmsmässan. It's quite easy to get there with public transportation as it's only nine minutes with any of the southbound commuter trains (Stockholm C -> Älvsjö station) and then a short walk (a few hundred meters). Take to the left outside the station... More

I ended up in this hotel somewhat by accident. I was travelling at short notice and in the summer rooms at sensible (albeit Swedish sensible!) are very difficult to find. The train out to Alvsjo is frequent (the station is the junction of three lines), takes 8 minutes and costs 36SEK. The hotel is then a 3 minute walk, so... More

I stayed at the First Hotel Royal Star for a few nights while visiting some exhibitions at Stockholmsmässan. The room was cosy with a nice bed and bathroom, and free internet always comes in handy. The heated bathroom floor tiles were a nice touch in the middle of winter! My only real complaint is that the food plates that people... More

I have stayed the the First Hotel Royal Star once before 2 years ago without problems however this time the experience was not good.

Perfect location next to the Stockholm Exposition Center with easy commutes to the city centre thanks to the commuter train. Very clean and my room was cosy! The bed was extremely comfortable. I enjoyed having a heated bathroom floor. The staff members were very friendly and helpful. I ate twice at the restaurant and each time it was delicious. A... More

First Hotel Royal Star: WOW! What a fantastic hotel! We stayed here to attend the annual Stockholm Oktoberfest (yes, it's in August in Sweden!) which was held on the Stockholmsmässan fairgrounds just a 5 minute stroll from the hotel. Our room was massive and included a comfy bed, two chairs, a table, free wifi and a flatscreen TV with countless... More
