There wasn't a wardrobe in our room but there was space to hang clothes. Breakfast was lovely. There was a range of cooked food, pancakes, pastries, breads and... More

Stayed here for business one night, usually stays at another hotel in the area but it was fully booked this time. The room was small and the breakfast buffet could include wider range of food. The service was okay, not more or less.

Beware of advertised room descriptions such as "Queen" bed, "Bed size 140cms". "Queen" in UK if not elsewhere usually means "quite big but not as big as "King". Bed size in cms is unlikely to be correctly interpreted. Old-fashioned very small rooms with small beds withl only about 45 centimetres space each side of bed to the walls.

Fortunately we do offer different room types and have bed sizes that are King and also 240 cm wide which is probably the largest hotel beds in all of Stockholm. Welcome... More

We arrived a little late to this hotel on Ostermalm in Stockholm. We checked in and went to our assigned double room. It was the smallest, even smaller than small ones in Paris!

If you want to experience how it feels like staying at Faulty Towers. Take your chance at Best(???) Western Karlaplan in Stockholm Sweden; rude staff, small but fantastic expensive rooms, outdated standard, swedish staff that does not understood neither scandinavian languages or english, bring your own breakfast if not you"ll starve.

My partner and I stayed here during a conference (this was a booking organised by the university), and we have nothing but good things to say about the hotel's staff. Everyone was friendly, and very accommodating (e.g. providing us with constant supplies of ice). Plus, everything was clean, the shower was lovely and the breakfast was very tasty. However, there...

Hotel close to karlaplan and stadion metro stations. If weather is good, you can also walk to Stockholm centre. Personnel is also very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast is not bad, with possibility of having both a continental or a English one. Single rooms are very small so go for a double one.

Staying in Ostermalm

Neighborhood Profile
Ostermalm
With its high-end shopping facilities and Michelin-starred restaurants, Östermalm is definitely the poshest part of central Stockholm. Here you will find Stockholm’s most majestic residential buildings, a beautiful market hall from 1888 displaying gourmet foods from around the world and the Swedish Royal Dramatic Theatre with its awe-inspiring architecture. At night, legendary nightclubs make the perfect location to observe the natives (and those aspiring to become natives of this exclusive neighborhood) in their natural habitat and to enjoy the latest produce of the Swedish house music scene.
