I booked two nights for me and my son on recommendations from a friend I couldn’t be more satisfied with our choice. From the friendly and professional front office staff (thank you Ida and Erik and the team), the super clean room(I’m in the hospitality industry myself so I’m checking every corner) with the most comfortable bed (we slept like logs and had our longest sleep in ever) to the delicious breakfast with smooth service, great protocol for sanitizing and discrete signs of keeping distance etc made us feel very safe. The location was perfect with walking distance to Skansen(if you like longer walks other wise walk 5-10minutes and take the tram), local playgrounds and off course restaurants and shopping. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone, single traveler, couples or families with young or old children - we are already planning our return! Many thanks to you all, stay safe and happy!

I spent a week at this hotel which was reserved for me by my employer. The location is very convenient but the hotel is average as best. No lobby, as the space serves as a breakfast dining hall, no restaurant or room service. Rooms lack standard amenities such as an iron or even shampoo bottles. On the plus side, the room was perfectly clean and well tended throughout my stay.

Thank you Micheal for your review! Sorry to hear that we didn't live up to your expectations. Both iron/ironingboard and shampoo are available with a quick call to the front desk. I'm very sorry if this information was not readily available to you. We hope to see you again to show you that we can do better! I wish you a warm welcome back!

The hotel is an affordable option for staying in Stockholm, with an underground stop on the red line three minutes away. Unfortunately, the rooms are too small, and way too cold, so all in all it's not too cosy at all! Also, the beds are uncomfortable and the wi-fi sometimes has problems. But at least it's clean and the breakfast is ok. I guess it's ok for a short stay if you don't plan on spending too much time in the room.

I stayed at Best Western Karlaplan for 4 nights. The Hotel is not luxurious, the reception area is small as well as the dining area, you may stay for a while till you see a seat at breakfast time. Room was nice and clean, but it has no Closet due to its diminished size. Warming is not properly functioning as they provide me with an extra small heater in the room. Breakfast was good with Varariety. I would like to pay Special Thanks to Joshaphine at the Front Desk Who was super helpful and gracious.
