“Unreliable”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

I booked a one bedroom apartment six months in advance for a 8 days stay but was assigned a single room "superior suite" upon arrival, without any warning or explanation, and charged the rate corresponding to the original booking. Only after complaining I was told that a leakage problem had occurred at the one bedroom apartment, and promised a reduction in the charges. In the end I got a 10% rebate (for 50% less space !).
Apart from that, the apartment was poorly equiped in the kitchen area. The flat screen tv was of good quality and size but programming was poor, with the BBC as the only news network available in English (and nothing in French, or German or Spanish, as you may find elsewhere). On top of that, the internet wi-fi signal was weak inside the apartment.

I spent about month at this hotel and can vouch for its effectiveness. Great for longer visits. Self contained studio apartments, nice breakfast buffet and staff speak English well( as most Swedes do!). Also conveniently not far from public transport and the City Center.Will definitely recommend this place.

We stayed in the hotel for 6 days, as part of a more business like trip. We were very happy with the accomodation in the 1 bedroomed appartment, as it is spacious, clean and very modern. Even with the extreme cold, pleasantly warm. Breakfast is quit simple (continental), but lunch and dinner can also be recommend. Friendly and helpfull staff. A well equiped washing room on every floor if you want to do washing, and the kitchenette can be used for some simple cooking. The area in which it is situated is not the nicest I suppose, as you are close to the container harbour, but within 10 minutes you are in the city center. We parked our car in their garage.

Room Tip: The top floor has a balcony, which is nice for some fresh air, and also to smoke, as smoking is not...

The only reason I have not given this place 5 is because of the location. A 15 to 20 min bus/tube ride from central Stockholm but this is reflected in the price and we were aware of this before we went.

We had a standard apartment which was modern, spotless, quiet, well presented, and warm!

We didn't use the kitchen but everything is there and brand new and would be useful for anyone staying for any length of time on a tight budget.

There is an amazing leisure facility next to reception!

All in all these apartments are right up there with quality 4* hotels downtown but at fraction of the cost.

Room Tip: The room we had was excellent and we were more than happy with it but would have preferred top floor...

I recently went to Stockholm, with my daughter, for a short stay. We stayed at this hotel and were very pleased with our choice. We had a double apartment room, which was big enough to comfortably hold an armchair with foot stool along with a table and two chairs, the kitchen area was well equipped, with small hob and microwave. The shower room was huge. The room also had an ironing board and iron. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was basic, no hot options, but plentiful.
The hotel is based just outside the main centre, we caught the number 1 bus which took about twenty minutes, and stops just outside the hotel. This distance is, I think, what makes the difference in price, between this hotel and the more central hotels. The buses run every ten minutes and make it worth the saving.
Very nice stay and wouldn't hesitate to return.

These rooms are great, like mini apartments. Very modern and brand new. Location is close to the city, but takes a bit of travel with public transportation. Unfortunately some noise from next door club/bowling alley. If you need something bigger than hotel room, this is it.

I've recently returned from a 4 night stay at the Biz Apartments Gardet and I've only good things to report about it!!! Rooms are very comfortable and compare well with a good 4 star hotel. Rooms are particularly well equipped and are immaculately clean. Housekeeping not provided on a daily basis but I didn't find this problematic. Soundproofing was very good and I had no disturbances during my stay...

Loaction is a little bit out of the centre but the Biz Gardet is well served by public transport which in Stockholm is inexpensive and reliable. The nearest Tunnelbahn station is a brisk 10 minute walk. Buses are also freely available but I cannot comment as I did not use them. There's a very good supermarket about 5 mins from hotel - ask for directions at reception.

Overall my stay at the Biz Apartment Hotel was very positive and I look forward to staying there again. I would choose this accomodation in preference to a city center hotel.
