“Goodnight drink.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

A great place for a last drink on your way back to the Hilton hotel, (it's in the same building). Beautiful views over the waterfront as the sunsets over the old town.

“Real nice restaurant in the middle of Stockholm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2012

This is the restaurant of the Hilton Stockholm Slussen Hotel.
It is a real nice place, in summertime they open the terrace and you may dine or have drinks outside. The food is good. I had Chicken Tikka Masala, which is not really swedish, but it was very good! The personnel is nice and the atmosphere is relaxing and comfortable. The price is ok.
You may have dinner or drinks even if you do not stay in the Hotel.

“Worth a visit even if you don't stay at the Hilton”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

Bars at business hotels are normally designed for the lonley road warrior. Eken Bar, belonging to the Stockholm Hilton, is a nice exception and worth visiting even if you are not staying at the hotel. Its offers a splendid view over Gamla Stan (Old Town) and has a nice outdoor area for the long Scandinavian summer nights.

“Bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

I have not stayed at the hilton in Stockholm, but I went there for a drink at the bar. The bar is alright. Not too big and not too busy at that time. Beers on draugh were good and the prices not too high. Table service was quick and efficient. They even brought some peanuts at the table which is good. The bar was clean and colourful and there is a very nice view of slussen and the river from there. Nice place to stop by for a drink after work.
