Story Hotel Riddargatan
Ranked #30 of 154 Hotels in Stockholm
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 9, 2013

This hotel was for me 3 years ago "THE" hotel concept in europa.
Way to check-in, the experience, food & bar, hotel-room , design but sorry now it's time to work on that.

- Breakfast - is poor.
- No Service
but cool people staying there!

Internet is really a problem (with a Mac). Not cool

If you are looking for non-traditional hotel. If you want a nice, modern place but with a scandinavian touch. If you find a good price (on the website of the hotel) -> Than go for it.

Room Tip: Normal rooms are small!

We loved staying at this hotel. It was perfect!
The design was a mixture of bohemian chic and Swedish style.
Breakfast was delicious, the voice in the elevator topped it all.
Very nice staff.
We'll be back!

Story hotel is definitely for those who don't prefer the dull interior of most 3-4 star hotels. The location is excellent, however the main door can be a little hard to find.

Very clean, stylish rooms with nice vibe in them. Walls house some nice pieces of art and the tiles in the bathroom consist of nice color variations.

If you ever can call living in a hotel exciting (especially during a business trip), I'd say Story Hotel gets quite close to that definition.

Also, their feedback card was neat!

I stayed for two nights visiting my friend in Stockholm, in October 2012. Honestly I was a bit skeptical about the hotel (very good review on TripAdvisor for an independent hotel), but I was happy with the hotel and definitely consider coming back next time I visit Stockholm.

Pros:
(1) Very stylish and hip room. My room has a couple of arts on the walls. The size is also sufficient (for European standard).
(2) There is no reception area (there is a girl using a pc just inside the hotel entrance), but the receptionist was very friendly and efficient.
(3) Location is great. Center of all the attractions. 20 min walk to the Centeal Train station (where you can take a express train to the airport). It takes 10 min if you take a subway (Ostermalmstorg station).
(4) It's a great location, but somehow the hotel is located just off the main street, so it has a residential feel (the building facing the hotel is a condo), and thus is quiet at night.
(5) The hotel bar is very stylish.
(6) Reasonably priced for the amenities it offers.
(7) Wireless is free at the reception area.
(8) Breakfast was nice.

Cons:
(9) It's not your place if you expect something like Marriott.

Actually I cannot come up with a lot of cons!

The rooms are spacious and cozy, although with a slightly industrial feeling, e.g. one of the walls in the rooms is made out of concrete with only tears of wallpaper on it. I myself truly like the look of the rooms, but this is not the right place to stay if one is looking for a more classicaly decorated hotel. Also the noise level can be quite high in the evenings, especially during weekends since both the bar and the restaurant are very popular spots in Stockholm. A cocktail in the bar is thus highly recommended. The breakfast is great, and the restaurant is a nice place to have lunch at on weekdays. Finally, the hotel has a self-service approach, meaning that you'll manage check-ins and check-outs via computers in the reception, and then you use a code as the key to your room. However, there is almost always someone readily at hand to help you if you have any questions or if, for example, you need to leave your luggage at the hotel after check-out.

Room Tip: If you are sensitive to noise or just plan on going to bed early, I recommend you do not choose the...
