“Nice Hotel!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2011

The hotel is centrally located. It's accesible to the city center, just 5 minutes walk from the hotel. It's just several steps from the central station of the Arlanda Express Buses from the Airport. Just beside and across the street are several Bars, Cafe's and Restaurants with different specialities. Shopping Centers and the Kulturhuset is only several minutes walk from the hotel and further you'll reach some of the most important tourist spots of Stockholm, the Old Town, The Royal Palace, the Strandvagen, departure area for boat tours, the Vasa Museum and the Tivoli. The room is small but have free access of internet .The swimmingpool is small too. The jacuzzi & sauna is alright. As described a 5*Star Hotel, I would have my ratings to only a 4*Star Hotel.

We were upgraded to a junior suite for our stay here which was nice and modern. It is directly across from Centralstation and close to both Old Town and shopping. Full service breakfast is included with the price of the room each morning from 6:30-10am. Internet access if free for 3 hour per day over a wireless connection. It is a large hotel and feels like one which is why I would hold back on an excellent rating.

We stayed here for a few days to explore Stockholm. The location was great - we walked everywhere and found things easily. There were also a lot of food options close by. (Although I would not recommend the steakhouse across the road - the food was good but the service was atrocious. My husband and I spoke English and the waitress didn't realise that as a Norwegian speaker I can understand Swedish and was very rude.) But a great hotel, friendly staff and very clean and comfortable rooms.

Radisson Blu Royal Viking is the ideal hotel for a business traveller. The location is just perfect with connections by road, train and subway to just about everywhere in Sweden. The Central Station is just across the entrance of the hotel. The subway just below and the Arlanda Express that takes you to the airport or brings you from there, just around the building. Taxis are available just outside the hotel. The Central Bus Terminal is across the building too. What more can you ask for where quick access to all transport is concerned.

The morning breakfast - included in the room tariff if you have a deal with the hotel starts at 6.30 a.m. and has a great spread. The timing is perfect too as it allows you to eat before leaving for your meetings. If that is not early enough a take away coffee counter with energy bars to go is available in the lobby early morning for those who need to rush to the airport or otherwise.

Step outside the building and walk straight into the commercial area of Stockholm, lots of sightseeing, shopping and great eateries around just a walk away.

The rooms are quite luxurious too, well maintained, tea/coffee counter and mini bar. If you miss anything, the hotel services are very helpful. You can even get your laptop and other electronic equipment plug converters on loan at the reception!

There could be more English TV news and entertainment channels though!

All it all, a very good and stress free experience. I stay at this hotel everytime I travel on business to Stockholm

Room Tip: Great Location, Comfort at its best,Friendly Staff

I was staying here with my family on our Sweden and France trip last year. We stayed here 4 days at the junior suite, then went to france for 6 days and returned here again for 2 nights as our flight was from the stockholm airport. Not much to say about this hotel, the breakfast was great, perfect location. It's just a block from the a shopping street filled with all known brands and about a 10 - 15 min. walk from the Old town and the Royal Palace. There is also a McDonalds right across the street. My recommendation to anyone would be to book the junior suite than normal deluxe rooms as the rooms are a rip-off in comparison to the suite.

Room Tip: Book Junior suites instead of Deluxe rooms.

A good place to saty for a shorter break or stay in Stockholm. Easy access to buses and door to door with Central train station and underground. value for money and do not miss the breakfast smargasbord. Probably the best in the world.
Just one negative aspect, bathroom was smelly and cleaned properly.

Room Tip: Ask for city view

The hotel was great and ideally located to walk to the shopping district or the old town. the regular tourist buses also frequent this area so you are never in need of a taxi. Take the express train from the airport - cheapest and fastset solution.
