“Great Business Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

This was a delightful surprise for a business traveler. Internet is fast, rooms are spacious, bathrooms are new looking and the shower has some power - its all good.
The restaurant downstairs has a very high standard of food and the staff are attentive, polite and gracious.

So for business, this place ticks all the boxes as well as being very central.

Room Tip: I stayed on the 8th and 15th floors. Both great.

We stayed here before in January 2013 and returned to the same hotel because of the great experience we had had.

The location of the hotel is next to the central train station where the Arlanda Express we took n arrived at night around 10:00 pm.

Checked in by friendly staff and was given a room on the 11th floor with amazing views of the harbour and old town...loved it! Lovely n comfy room with coffee n tea making facilities.....mini bar...

Enjoyed the delicious breakfast and the choices of hot and cold items were wonderful.

Check out staff was friendly n helpful n provided us with tour boat info etc

Would definitely recommend this hotel!

My husband and I stayed here for two nights. We arrived late in the evening and had a little trouble getting to the hotel from the train station (although it is literally right next door!). This is because after 10 or 11pm the access corridor that leads directly from the station to the hotel (and that is signed posted) is locked so you have to walk around the whole station to get to the hotel. If you are arriving at a more sociable hour by train then you won't have this problem of course!!

The staff at the desk were really friendly and our room was nice and had a good view of the water. Our room was a bit sparse and 'business like', with a large desk etc but very comfortable and clean.
The breakfast was really great - a massive selection of everything you can think of. We loved it!

Spacious and clean room, heated bathroom floor (common in Sweden), overall check-in experience is close to excellent.
It's tricky to find the hotel from the central station although it's really close, you can literally walk out and take the lift, instead of leaving the train station building at all.
It's not marked very well so I still took the detour.
I had an excellent dinner meal at the hotel- baked/grilled seafood from catch of the day. Ask your waiter. Bread was very tasty.
They only reason I gave 4 star is because my room doesn't have full view as it's located on 7th floor which was not high enough.

This hotel appears to exist purely as an adjunct to the Conference Centre and as such is fit for purpose.
The positives: excellent reception staff and an amazing way of coping with 600+ people at the very good buffet breakfast;

Average: the lamb at dinner was very good and the service was effective but the layout of the dining area was poor, with a long white formica wall and a walkway creating one side of the dining area where staff had to kick a release stop on the floor to open the door into the kitchen which was off-putting;
our room was OK with a nice soft bed but in the en-suite (no bath) the open shower prevented one from creating a nice warm fug and there was no underfloor heating which there is in the updated bathrooms in the Radisson Royal Viking so it was easy to feel chilled in the bathroom.

Negative:the dark grey corridors were very gloomy - why dark grey? in Sweden?
lack of a view. Although we had a room with a 'water view' half of the view was blocked by the monstrosity that is the cladding of the conference centre.
reception area resembles a railway waiting room
bar area insufficient for the number of rooms.

This is not an hotel designed to attract recreational visitors and we found it boring.The Royal Viking has a bit more atmosphere. However if you just want a room convenient for the centre of Stockholm which serves a good breakfast then this is fine.

Room Tip: To get a decent view go for the top 2 floors in an odd numbered room(the even numbers look into the...

Helpful and efficient staff; nice atmosphere in the lobby and in the restaurant. Very comfortable rooms. Amazing breakfast - freedom of choice. And the location is just perfect - next to the Central Station; 15 minutes walk to the Old City area; 5 minutes walk to the City hall..

This hotel is right at the exit/entrance of the central train station. If you are lugging loads of luggage, you cannot find a better place than this. The rooms itself are big, clean and the beds are comfy. The buffet breakfast was superb and we couldn't find a single item that we disliked from the huge selection of food.
Note: Pay attention to the exit that you come out from at the train station. If you leave via the wrong exit, the hotel could be a good 10 minutes walk away. (You basically end up at the shopping area instead)
