“wonderfull stay in stockholm”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Was in Stockholm for 3 nights at the end of August and had the luck of having fantastic weather. Hotel was good, very large and, except for the lobby, not very designer-ish.

Room was OK, quite small, but we knew that upfront. Great shower!

What I liked:
- The lobby bar: very lively bar with good vibe, great bartenders and good fun in the afternoon until late in the evening
- Breakfast: good choice of food and although it's a big hotel and they need to get a lot of people breakfast in a short time, it looked clean & spaces were always available
- Rooms cheerful & clean & good bathroom (but don't expect a lot of space)

What I did not like:
- No congierce service, would expect that in this type of hotel
- Elevator capacity
- Queue for reception: seriously, 2 people working front desk for such a big hotel ?

Great location just beside Arlanda Express with Norra Bantorget infront. I have stayed here a couple of times during the past years and never gets disappointed. Very friendly and helpful staff, the rooms are spacious and very clean and fresh. Breakfast is from heaven, one of the best I've ever had. The only minus I can think of is the crowded lobby and breakfast area during "peak hours".

Room Tip: Higher floors for a nice view!

I went there on a businses trip for three nights. Great atmosphere in the reception, restaurant area.
And the most amazing lifts I've ever been in! (if that rocks your boat...) One with lifesize cutouts of Abba and microphones so you can sing along to Abba tracks.
Rooms are fine - your average city centre hotel. Annoyingly, they only have an all in one hand/body/shampoo wash which I always find disappointing if you have had to pack light.
But overall, very good.

I had the pleasure of staying 5 nights at this conveniently located Stockholm hotel during the last part of August. In contrast to other reviews, I found the staff extremely friendly and helpful, the breakfast buffet well-stocked (they definitely want to keep the omelette and waffle chef), and the rooms well-appointed. I was there with my daughter and 5 year old granddaughters, and we had two different kinds of rooms. The more expensive superior rooms facing the park have a lovely view, while the standard rooms at the back are just as nicely furnished but have no view and are smaller. The hotel has a fun vibe with each elevator playing different types of music and a DJ in the lobby on weekends. I do agree that the rate for the spa is too high, especially if you want to take children for a brief swim. If you have flexibility, avoid going to breakfast at the crowded times designated by the hotel. Also, there is take-away coffee provided.

Only stayed for one night at the Clarion Hotel Sign.
Very friendly & welcoming staff upon arrival.
I had a nice room, not oversized, but good.
The bed was a really comfortable, pillows are thick and fluffy... I want a bed like that at home!
Clean bathroom, good lightning. A major surplus in the room: you can open the window and enjoy some fresh air!
I was scared of the nearby railway, but had no noise of that! Good!
The design of the hotel is not edgy ; but clear & modern with a lot of Scandinavian design, elevators are music-themed and the breakfast area is very cosy and a even little "hip". The breakfast itself was voluminous, fresh with plenty of choice.
Het hotel has a good location, in the modern part of town. a 5 min walk from all shops and buzz. / 15 to 20 min. walk from the old city / 10 min. from the famous city hall.
Had no time to use the spa & rooftoppool & bar... will do that next time!

I can highly recommend this hotel. It's modern, clean and a little bit quirky with the lifts that all have different themes of music. The bed was the most comfortable I've slept on in years, including our own bed! The soundproofing of the rooms is also better than I've found elsewhere so you don't get woken late at night or early morning but other inconsiderate guests, which is one of my pet hates. The service from all the staff was amazing and my only complaint was no coffee making facilities in the rooms but when I asked about it, they brought me a kettle immediately so it's worth asking evem though it's not provided as standard. The location of the hotel to the Arlanda Express and all city attractions is great and we were able to walk to most places. The rooms are very simple, but we actually liked that as you can see it's clean and modern. Can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Didn't really notice any need to specify rooms in a specific area like most hotels as the noise...

This is our second stay at the sign. The hotel is very busy but I think it gives the place a good feeling. The staff in reception are always working hard but they are very helpful and good natured. The rooms are very clean and modern. Our room had big windows that gave great light and a beautiful view at night of the city lights. The bar in the lobby is always busy and they have great music and good food. I was a little disappointed with the breakfast because last time we stayed at the hotel there was a chef cooking eggs to order but not this week- end! We ate at the off beak times to avoid the last hour rush.
One thing I find misleading is that they say they have a workout room and spa. There is one in the hotel but you need to pay to get in as it is not part of the hotel. I had a massage and it was great. The workout area is very small and the spa gets very busy on week- ends. The people in the spa were very friendly and helpful.
The hotels location is very central for airport transportation and walking the city for sight seeing.
