I usually never take the time to review a hotel. When I do it’s because it really was 100% or it was really bad. I stayed at this hotel because I got a good deal. However, I did not like the hotel at all. The hotel is in a good location but it is old. I stayed at a single... More

This hotel is in a really cool part of Stockholm, a short walk from plenty of restaurants and good shopping. You can't get away from the fact that this hotel is dated and tired with basic facilities and costs a fortune, normally a 3 star. My room was ok, but the bathroom was dated and basic. However, what lifts this... More

I had to stay here as this was a last minute decision and there were hardly and hotel rooms available due to a medical conference. Rooms are small and it's in an old building. However everything is functional, clean and the breakfast is very nice. Quite an irritant that they did not allow me to check-in till 3pm despite my... More

Frienldy reception. The room at the end of the corridor was ordinary but the bathroom was clean and tidy. Internet was kind of slow, but ok for basics. Location is excellent in a calm side street, but close to many places of interest and just a block or two from cafes and restaurants. Breakfast room and food was ok. I... More

I have been there for 2 nights. BEST WESTERN is in a good location around the all nice nights clubs, easy acces to the parliament and so on, the lakes... Lobby was nice, In general room and bathroom were nice but the only problem I saw is that internet was highly slow, incredible. I hope they will fix it asap.

BEST WESTERN Karlaplan Hotel is centrally located in Stockholm. I visited the hotel for one night during a short business trip. I arrived quite late and check-in was smooth. My room was located in a stairwell, which seemed quite odd. The room was small but still ok, and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast was ok, but not great. Check-out... More

As other reviewers have mentioned, the BIG problem with this hotel are the lower level rooms which you WILL be allocated if you book through most discount websites. We spend little time in our room, so it wasn't too much of an issue for us, although it was uncomfortably warm in the afternoon in mid-September. Not sure what conditions would... More

We made the mistake of booking a cabin room online. We sure learned a lesson. Our room was below street level. The only window looked up to the courtyard but was in a narrow passageway and could not be seen from the bed. The room was l-shaped due to the elevator shaft taking up almost half of the room. The...

This hotel has a good location, but to a four star hotel I expected more. Breakfast was ok but the area is to small to the capacity of the hotel. The bedroom was small and a bit dark. In my personal opinion the bed was terrible to sleep.

Staying in Ostermalm

Neighborhood Profile
Ostermalm
With its high-end shopping facilities and Michelin-starred restaurants, Östermalm is definitely the poshest part of central Stockholm. Here you will find Stockholm’s most majestic residential buildings, a beautiful market hall from 1888 displaying gourmet foods from around the world and the Swedish Royal Dramatic Theatre with its awe-inspiring architecture. At night, legendary nightclubs make the perfect location to observe the natives (and those aspiring to become natives of this exclusive neighborhood) in their natural habitat and to enjoy the latest produce of the Swedish house music scene.
