We enjoyed very much to stay in the Rival Hotel. We liked very much the location, the breakfast and the hotel bar. The stuff was also very friendly. The metro is also very close. We, for sure will come again!

Nice welcoming and excellent service. Exciting design furniture and genuine "art atmosphere" in the premises generally. Good sea food. Perfect balcony for a drink in the setting sun. Value for money. Love to come back!

Spacious, quiet and nicely decorated room. Complete selection of continental breakfast including hot food, with nice side order à la carte menu (which was included, and appreciated!) and great front desk and room service. I only lacked two things: 1. A ballpoint pen in the room. (as a complement to the pencil; nearly impossible to fill in the Room Service order slip with it.) 2. Clothes hangers with clips underneath, (it makes it easier if you want to hang folded trousers etc) Otherwise, this was a perfect "holiday" for me as a Södermalm resident!

The whole family love to stay here when we are having a little staycation in Stockholm, the staff are very friendly, professional and helpful, rooms are great. The big winner for the kids is the breakfast from made to order pancakes on the breakfast menu and the great choices on the breakfast buffet, The kids favorite place to stay in Stockholm by far! 👌🏻
