“Great Location- Helpful Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013 via mobile

This reasonably priced hotel is situated literally at Central Station. It means that you can just get off the train from the Airport and have a 2 min walk to the station.

We met friendly staff on arrival and despite being 12.30pm we were allowed to check into our hotel early.

The rooms need a revamp as they appear a little outdated. We did not try the food or use any of the hotels in house facilities. All in all however this is a superbly located hotel and I would gladly return.

Excellently located hotel, right by the central station and a few steps from the Arlanda Express train. I have stayed here a few times, and it always seems to be full, often its booked out too.
It’s a pretty standard Radisson, the rooms are an ok size but are pretty dated. I think some rooms don’t even have windows according to colleagues who have stayed here too! There’s always a buzz in the lobby and the bar is very busy. I have never had breakfast here so can’t comment.
I have only stayed here for business but due to its excellent location, this would be good for a city break too. All of the main city sights and shopping are very close.

Dear "Flossykins",

Thank you for your review!

Our rooms have different kinds of looks, you have probably stayed in one of our "Classic rooms". All of our rooms have windows, some with street view and some overlooking the atrium in the heart of the hotel.
We hope to have the pleasure in welcoming you back again soon!

Kind regards,

As many others have noted this hotel is well situated near Central Station and in easy walking distance of many attractions. Spent 4 nights and had a great time.

Rooms are variable. We were initially given a worn out (but large) older room but were swiftly moved when we advised staff that the drain in the bathroom was smelly. The new room was perfect, roomy and well appointed.

The other asset this hotel is their staff. They were uniformly polite and helpful and made our stay a pleasure. They were more than happy to delay our checkout to suit us. The breakfast was also good and a bargain for Stockholm. The ambiance in the breakfast room was a little lacking in charm but adequate.

We would go back if we returned to Stockholm.

It's a business hotel, and a Radisson, so there's no "quaintness." But the hotel is beautiful, it's right next to Central Station, it's within walking distance of Old Stockholm (and everything else you'd want to see), and it has an indoor pool and gym. Very good lobby bar, great staff, a coffee shop in the lobby, and great rooms. I waited until the day before to book the room, and I got a great rate.

I stayed at Royal Viking for one night on a business trip.

The rooms really need a make-over. It was rather old fashioned and worn. Old bathrooms and bad hairdryer. But it was clean.

The location was fine, in the city centre right next to the central station.

The skybar was nice as well and the breakfast was really good with a wide range of ditches, although the breakfast area is cold and impersonal.

Being just outside the Central Station in Stockholm the hotel is in a good location for stepping off the train from the airport and straight to reception for check in.

Our room on the ninth floor was larger than our friends room on the fifth floor - lucky for us I guess. Our room was clean and fresh with a large TV and minibar so was more than adequate for two nights.

The hotel is walking distance to Gamla Stan (old town) in about 10-15 minutes and about the same distance to the newer shopping area.

Service in the SkyBar (ninth floor) was good although we were there after 0100 and the place seems popular with non residents too. The lobby bar was busier in the late evening and service a little slower but watching the world go by with a beer or cocktail was most pleasant. For hotel bar prices (and considering being in Sweden) the cost was not as bad as I expected.

The buffet breakfast (112SeK) was good value with a massive selection on offer and the large breakfast meant we could skip lunch. Other hotels would charge far more for less choice and lower quality. It must be good because it was very busy both mornings.

When in Stockholm again, which I would like to do in the future, then I would be very happy stopping here.
