“Kitchen is for sleeping”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Probably I'm spoilt by turkish hotels... but kitchen decor for the hotel room was not what I expected at all. And if they are for a nautical theme: where is salmon on the breakfast table? Restaturant J has good standard, high prices and no competition at all around on Sunday evening. Nacka Forum is great for shopping, lots of stores and almost no people at all:)
And I mean even Ibis hotel has free coffee and tea for the guests - here you are expected to pay for everything, very bad from the hospitality point of view.

We were made to feel so welcome in this cosy, winter wonderland over Christmas time last year. Excellent service, with staff going out of their way to ensure our comfort. This beautiful setting gave us a taste of a true Scandinavian Christmas, complete with pickled herring, snow and magical Christmas lights. A short boat or bus trip away from the city centre made it very easily accesible and convenient. We would love to experience this great hotel in summer too!

We stayed 3 nights in Hotel J. The rooms were nice and comfortable. The bathroom was the best i ever experienced! Breakfast was excellent. The only downside was the public transport from and to the city. Make sure you have the blue card, or a Stockholm-card; this makes travelling around more easy. Alsof check the timetables for bus and boat so you won't loose precious time.

I only stayed for one night on business in Nacka, but I cannot fault the hotel in any way.
The hotel is about 20 minutes from the city center by taxi. A stunning location with beautiful rooms and a fantastic view of the water.
Rooms are decorated in Swedish tradition, a lot of wood and organic cloth materials. The double bed was very comfortable and I felt well rested the following day.
There is no evening service in the hotel restaurant, however the "J Restaurant is only a 5min walk away in the small harbor, breakfast in the hotel is very good, with a wide selection of cereal, fruit, eggs, meats etc.

The location and view is fantastic. Outside the hustle and bustle of the city, yet only a 15min ferry ride to the center of town. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable with a nautical theme. The staff were polite and friendly. Restaurant J is about a 5min walk and despite being once again very expensive, the food, ambience and view was fantastic. Complementary wifi was appreciated. A computer with internet and a printer was great for printing boarding passes.

The included breakfast could have been more extensive. Reasonably basic for the hotels standard. Room prices are expensive, but then again so is the rest of sweden. A taxi ride from the airport will set you back about US$120 each way.

Hotel J at Nacka Strand is a waterfront designer hotel in a kind of New England (Gant) style. It seems to be newly refurbished and is very modern. Staff was friendly, the room spacious with a huge and very comfortable bed, it was very quiet so we slept well, and breakfast (in a separate, older house) was ample if a bit crowded. To have lunch or dinner you have to walk about three minutes to the associated Restaurant J where the passenger boats from Stockholm dock. The restaurant is very popular and reservation is recommended, although as a hotel guest they will offer you a place in the bar even if full booked. The location of the restaurant as well as the hotel is beautiful, and great weather enhanced our stay. The room price was very reasonable, at least for a weekend for two in one room without seaview. The downside is of course the distance from the centre of Stockholm, but if you inform yourself about the bus and boat schedules (be aware that not all boat lines accept payment on board) that is managable. The boat ride is an experience in itself if the weather is nice. We paid about 320 SEK for a taxi to the Central Station on an early Sunday afternoon.

Room Tip: Rooms with sea view are considerably more expensive than rooms facing the forest in the back.

Hotel J is located by the shore in Nacka Strand. It is accessible by bus and boat from Stockholm city.

There are nice restaurants close by and the hotel's conference kitchen is ambitious.

The New England style concept and decoration suits the location and seems thouroughly worked in.

Free wifi and a hearty breakfast.
