“Great Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

We stayed here for 2 nights. The location is great. Right in the old town on the water. Walking distance to many things. the room was alittle small and kind of dated but very clean. The breakfast is outstanding one of the best we had on our 2 week vacation to scandinavia. The reception staff were outstanding very helpful with directions they also let us check in early. I would stay again if in stockholm.

perfect location for a getaway in Stockholm walking distance to a lot of things and a nice view of the water.
Breakfast is big and you can stay full on that long in to the afternoon.
Reception staff was going out of their way to help with any matter.
I will def stay there again if I go back to Stockholm

This hotel is in an excellent position as it is on the edge of Gamla Stan (Old Town) and overlooks the water.Reception on arrival was excellent and during our stay were friendly and helpful.There is security with the lift as you need to use your door card ( small lift) to get to your floor level.The room we had was small, basic ( only bottles of water in bar fridge), and basic toiletries in bathroom. The bathroom had a shower over the bath and it worked well.Except for continual banging of doors from other guests, it was quiet, no excessive outside noise.The bedroom was small but clean, but had very little cupboard space so were living out of suitcases.There is one small window in the room with a small curtain that does nothing to stop the light coming in a bit of a problem as when we stayed it was getting light before 4.00am!
The hotel has a small gym that my wife was able to use, there is also an excellent bar and a reasonable restaurant.The buffet breakfast in the morning I thought was excellent - had cereals ( incl. 2 types of muesli), a range of cold meats and cheeses, and a limited variety of fruit, breads and a few pastries, coffee & juices. Hot items available were scrambled eggs, soft & hard boiled eggs, sausages baked beans, bacon & mushrooms - service was efficient.
Overall we enjoyed our stay here due to the hotel position and the friendly staff.

This hotel is absolutely gorgeous. Yes it is not top luxury because the building is old and a little tough to renovate and keep in tip top form- don't expect 5 star luxury but expect 5 star class. Staff are friendly and professional. Breakfast is amazingly put together and has a good choice and quality. Breakfast room is nice too overlooking waterfront. The pool and sauna was amazing, like a secret cave underground. I loved my stay here, strolling distance to the best of Stockholm.

Reisen has an excellent location in Stockholm, and the first impression is rather good, as the hotel comes across in a modern way; also the restaurant is rather good. Rooms are however worn down and seems to be in need of a makeover.

We used this hotel as the base of our Stockholm explorations when we were here for our wedding - the whole wedding party stayed here. Everyone loved the hotel and thought it was gorgeous. Perfect location in a historic building.

Friendly & accommodating staff, great breakfast, and lovely outdoor sitting area as well.

All of the rooms that our group got were unique and everyone enjoyed them.

We stayed in one of the rooms that has a sauna which was really quite a treat! Worked wonders and was really fun to have.

Fantastic place!

A very nice hotel close to the water and the Stockholm old town.
The staff was helpful and I specifically enjoyed the various bits and pieces of the delicious breakfast. The price was reasonable but I would have wishes for a bit bigger rooms. The beds were excellent though.
