“Solid, friendly and renovated hotel in Central Stockholm”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

I stayed here one night this month. It's in a great location in Central Stockholm 2 minute walk from the metro to Central Station. Surrounded by lots of restaurants (Asian, Swedish, Italian and Steakhouse).

Rooms are small but very comfortable with renovated bathrooms and furnishings.

(+) Clean, nicely appointed rooms
(+) Comfortable, stylish and functional bathrooms
(+) Super friendly staff - 5 star people with a wonderful welcome
(+) Fast internet - (WIFI not always working on the far side of the hotel on top floor)

(-) Mattresses too soft for me
(-) Small wardrobe so if you are planning on staying longer, it could be a problem
(-) Breakfast choice is fresh BUT limited

Very reasonably priced (in Stockholm terms) so for a short business or leisure stay it's ideal.

Nice hotel, clean rooms, location 20 min walk from center but only 2 station with bus, nice & simple breakfast, very kind and helpful ladys on the reception desk. Free umbrella when raining, cute. Overall great only price 150eur/night is to much... but all prices in Stockholm are high. We stayed only 4 days and that is it.... back home.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights before Xmas, and were extremely pleased. It's very comfortable, great location (less than 15mins walk from the city centre) as well as 2 mins walk to the closest metro. As we were on a budget we decided to stay here, however the older brother to this hotel located opposite across the lane was the Hotel Hellsten, and we had a look inside and looked flash, this hotel also had a bar. The staff at the Rex were kind offering friendly assistance when needed. Also the breakfast was wonderful, free Wifi, clean hotel, very quiet location. Was very happy, would recommend to anyone travelling on a budget.

The hotel is at walking distance from downtown (Central Station or Gamla Stan) and situated in a quiet area. Tube is just around the corner.
Our room was located at the second floor facing the road (sometimes it was noisy but not that much). Everything was clean and well organized. The bathroom was functional, clean and with a very little basin. Beds are soft but in a pleasant way.
Breakfast was good but not as super as described by the other guests, there was a medium choice of items but we feel like that adding cakes or croissants could be beneficial.
If you want to have a quick dinner consider the Hellsten, in front of the Rex Hotel, did very nice and affordable food, despite a limited menu (three plates were available: reindeer, salmon and beef). Jensen's Bofhus is around the corner, near the metro station, it offers average food at a reasonable price.
A lot of other restaurants are available in the area.
The staff was really helpful and kind: always smiling and ready to help.
Internet access was ok and the fact that you can have tea or coffee for free in the hall of the hotel was really welcomed in a cold city like Stockholm.

Room Tip: Choose a room not facing the road if you are a light sleeper

Hotels in Stockholm are super expensive. I wanted a single room for one night only and the Rex Hotel turned out to be the perfect choice. I paid under 1000kr for a single room with breakfast. The room was small but comfortable. Everything was functional and worked well. The people in reception were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was good. I would stay there again. The location was good and I walked to all the variety of different places that I wanted to visit.

Room Tip: My room - a single room on the 1st floor was extremely quiet. It had a view over a little yard.

Really enjoyed our stay at the Rex. Warm and cosy inside, and very clean. Decent buffet breakfast. Quiet, central location, ideal for exploring Stockholm. Their sister hotel, the Hellsten, immediately opposite did very nice and inexpensive bar food, despite a limited menu.
