This is a fantastic property in the heart of Stockholm - minutes away from shopping, public transportation, culture, parks and anything else you might want or need. The rooms are beautifully decorated and very inviting, and the beds and bedding are the highest quality and practically perfect. It all made for a cozy, comfortable night of sleep. We loved dinner in the bistro and were thankful to have a patio table in perfect summer weather with incredible food, drink and service across the boards. The strawberry and elderflower summer dessert was an delicious way to end the meal! I also appreciate that when the staff offered us champagne and I said I didn’t drink, they didn’t miss a beat in asking if I’d like to try one of their alcohol-free sparkling teas - which are a favorite of mine! It was a special touch to not just be offered water or soda, like what happens in so many other places. Additionally, breakfast was fantastic and so different than all the other hotel breakfasts you will find around town. The only “negative” i would say, however small, was that the beautiful macarons offered at breakfast seemed to be more or less frozen - but we gnawed on them anyway for a chilly breakfast treat. We loved our visit to the Sparrow and appreciated the warm reception and flawless service of the entire hotel staff. We will definitely be back! Merci!

My spouse had a arranged a staycation at this place were she has stayed at before and highly recommended. I am really in to hotel and very picky, and this was absolutely up to my standards! A small but very nice front desk to check in at and very friendly staff that helped and briefed us, ie asking what time slot we wanted to have break fast on, since they had limited number of guests due to Covid. behind the front desk was a small lunge area, which was cozy and a bit private. When you are to get into your floor, you need a room key, and when you enter, there is a private lounge/chill area on each floor, with different seating areas with sofas and chairs, like a smaller home library kind of feeling, and some games and coffee table books. The scent in this area was magic. A very nice feature, so that guest can chill there after a day in the city. Entering room #405, was very nice. Large room with nice and calming colores on furniture and walls. Small sofa area first and then good space to move around, and the balcony straight forward opening up to one of Stockholms nices streets. Big and nice bed and everything looked clean and nice. Bathroom was big and nice. This might be on of the only small areas to give some feedback on, but is also something that is very difficult to change; but a small bassinet and a tap that is very high up, so it spreads water around on the top. The shower is open, so when you shower, there is a pool of water on the floor, so no possibilty to closer it. The toilette did not have a soft close lid, so in the night if you are up, it will sound a bit. There are Chrome casts in each room (not in ours when we tried, but they fixed it as we were out of the room for dinner), so you can mirror from your phone. The breakfast area and buffet was very good and very friendly and helpful staff. good options of food, but could have been better. Do not know if there was even a possibility to order a la carte, but we were not given this possibility at least, and did not ask. A very nice boutique hotel as central in the city as you can get, with very friendly and happy staff, that did everything for you. Excellent break fast. The one thing to "complain" about, was that we had a nice room with big windows and balcony towards the street, which also means, that in the summer time when people are out partying and having fun, and also driving sports cars up and down the street, it sounds quite a lot in the room. There were ear plugs in the room, but only for one, but could of course have been asked for more if needed.

This is the fourth (or is it fifth?) time I am staying here, in spite of being the type of traveler who appreciates trying different hotels. I've stayed at most (all?) of the 4-5 star hotels in Stockholm but The Sparrow and Grand Hotel are the ones I return to, for different reasons. The sparrow is small and personal, charming and luxurious at once. There are three things that stick out and make this my #1 choice in Stockholm. One is the reception staff - they are personal, super professional and make you feel like YOU are the most important guest at the hotel every time. They are just amazing. I would stay here just because of them. The Hotel Manager/Director Christian sets the tone and has an "open door policy" even for guests who walk by on their way to breakfast. The breakfast is reason number two to stay here. There are larger buffets, sure, but few are as well curated as this one. The croissants make you feel you are in Paris, the salmon, cheeses and egg dishes are top notch and the bacon is like no other bacon you have ever tried. Delicious. If you have room for one more thing, there is a tower of freshly made macarons. Number three must be the bedsheets. Sooner or later I will buy some to bring home. The only other place I've had such stunningly perfectly smooth and silky bed sheets was at the Ritz in Paris. Of course there are many more things I like, like the super central location, the interior design, the beds, the amazing wine list in the bistro (I work with wine, this one is a total gem), the lounge and library for guests on the fourth floor... All contribute to making this one of my favorite stays.

Everything was top class! Wonderful place with first class service, gorgeous quiet rooms and one of the best bistros in Stockholm. The room was beautiful with really comfortable bedding and mattress. The towels were fluffy and soft. The minibar had a good selection of drinks and snacks. We enjoyed a great dinner in the bistro and the breakfast was the best we have had.
