I have been staying at Rica talks a couple of time when I'm in a Stockholm for business. It used to be such a lovely hotel that deserved 4 stars rating. However, it has changed since. I was especially selected to come here for a stay rather than other near by hotel. Here is what I discovered: No kettle or... More

Close proximity to Conference center and station, beautiful view from 16 floor.he accommodation was fairly spartan.unsatisfactory cleaning service. breakfast is very good. Far from city center and sightseeing places. Talk hotel is out of the way but a ten minute train ride into the center of Stockholm where you can get the hop on-hop off bus, etc. Excellent, friendly, helpful... More

Fantastic Hotel, was on the 14th floor, brilliant view (esp of the thunder & lightning show) Looking over southern Stockholm, room was bright, bed was a little too soft for me, but it didn't stop me from sleeping, nice modern bathroom, fridge & TV. Wide choice of TV channels, but, you don't go on holiday to watch TV. 5/10min walk... More

I give this hotel a very generous 3-star rating, but in reality it offers a below average accommodation for the following reasons: Room - The rooms are bright and good size by European standards, but cleaning is poor. Upon check-in I noticed black stains on the hardwood floor and despite multiple requests, the floor was not mopped until my third... More

This is a basic hotel by the convention center. The service was rather poor. They forgot to clean our room, there was no shower gel and the internet had issues to connect to our devices. Housekeeping is only working during the day. The rooms are ok, but with a small TV. The only positive was the breakfast. During the summer... More

Unfortunately I didn't like much about this hotel. It took a long time to check in even though the hotel felt empty. Once in my room there was no toilet paper and no tissues, that was obviously a mistake but what was deliberate was no amenities. No shampoo, lotion etc, nothing in the mini bar, no water, nothing. The rooms... More

My wife, 2 kids (ages 7 and 10) and I had a 4-night stay in this conference hotel in Alvsjö, using it as a base to explore Stockholm. The hotel itself is about a 5 minute walk (rather steep incline) from the Alvsjö station, and there is a roof over most of the path which helps when it rains. Trains... More

The only reason to stay there is if your meeting is being held there. The rooms are small, badly kept and simple. Very simple breakfast. Lunch served at the restaurant was terrible. The only positive aspect was the reception's staff, who were helpful whenever needed.

This is the best possible choice for trips related to activities in the Stockholmsmässan conference centre which is literally next door. I have visited Stockholm twice, both times for business in the conference centre, the first time I stayed in the city centre and the next in the Scandic. My feeling was that it is not really convenient for sightseeing... More

We recently stayed six nights at this hotel while attending a conference at the Stockholm Convention Centre which adjoins this hotel. The room rate was too excessive (even for Sweden) for its quality, and facilities offered. This hotel was formerly Rica Talk Hotel, and the rooms need updating. In the parking garage level of the hotel is a small sauna,... More
