I generally stay at hiltons and radissons when traveling, however a friend booked this hotel. I was worried when I saw the hotel was attached to a convention center. When we went to check in they couldn't find our reservation, so we had to show them our email confirmation and wait for them to make a new reservation. Then we... More

I stayed at the Rica Talk hotel in mid-June for a week for a congress. I would have definitely stayed elsewhere if it wouldn't have been for work. Pros: Very close proximity to the Stockholmsmässan (right next door). Great breakfast with a good variety. Food at the restaurant upstairs was good however the menu was very limited. I really liked... More

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.
