“A disapointting end for our honeymoon”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

We were travelling in the Nordic countries last July and our last stop was at Hotel Nobis in Stockholm. It´s a hotel located in the heart of Stockholm in a beautiful old building. Everything looks great in Nobis. There is a great lobby bar that has a ceiling hight of 20 meters or something. Restaurants are trendy and the rooms are decorated with class. Everything is brand new. Nobis offers all the services that you can expect from a hotel of that caliber.

Sad thing is that the service does not match the beauty of the building. I had informed the hotel beforehand that we are on our honeymoon, and was hoping for a nice, peaceful room. Our room was ok, with a view to the square in front of the hotel. When we checked in, the only thing that we were told about the hotel was the location of elevators. Not a word mentioned of our honeymoon nor did they congratulate us. In all the other hotels that we stayed in during our honeymoon, all of them rememberd to congratulate us in some way. There were also a lot of problems in what was included in the price of our stay even though I had my reservation details printed out.

The final touch came in the morning upon check out. We had left our car in their parking garage and had asked the staff to pick it up for the morning the previous evening ( they have valet parking). In the morning when we went to check out, we found out that our car was not there. The receptionist was not informed about the pick up and he had to go and pick it up from the garage. We waited for about 20 minutes and then we had to rush through the city center of Stockholm to catch the ferry to Helsinki.

All in all, this hotel has all the facilities to become a top notch hotel, but the service was nowhere near high standards. Arrogant and sloppy are two words that come to my mind when thinking about the service.

Very nice hotel, at a perfect location and equally well designed. Had no chance to have a dinner or breakfast but it has a super cool bar and a very talented barmen, Axel. Give try to cocktails and I would suggest Bloody Mary!

The location of the Nobis is absolutely perfect and within walking distance of just about every major tourist or shopping location in Stockholm. The hotel is very well designed and trendy, and the staff were polite and helpful, especially at the front desk. My standard room was not particularly big but was not as small as I had expected and beautiful. The bed was incredibly comfortable. I read that some rooms overlook an interior courtyard so I was sure to request a city-facing room in advance, which I would definitely recommend doing. For a hotel of this quality, the price I paid was very reasonable. The only (minor) complaints I have were that there was no bathtub and that it took a long time for the hotel to come pick up my room service tray. That said, I would stay at the Nobis again in a heartbeat.

The perfect location in Stockholm: 10 minutes' walk from the station (buses & trolley bus also available), very close to the harbour and historic centre. The Nobis has been thoughtfully modernised without losing the period features. The bar is great, as is the breakfast buffet. Rooms are well-designed but a little small and many overlook the central (enclosed) courtyard, so remember to ask for an externally-facing one if you want a view. Staff are polished and helpful.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Nobis hotel. It is a a fantastic location with great shopping and the waterfront on your doorstep. Walking distance to Djurgarden, Gamla Stam, Sodermalm and the central station etc.

The hotel is extremely stylish throughout, but the comfort of our room was not sacrificed. We managed to find a 3 for 2 deal on the web which actually made our stay very good value by Stockholm stadards. Because of this I was a bit worried we might end up with a rubbish room, but in fact it was nice and spacious with a very large bathroom with a separate shower and bath which is always good. We had a view of an internal courtyard rather than the square in front of the hotel, but this meant that there was no noise. Others may prefer a view though. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly and the standard of English spoken was excellent. The cocktails at the bar were also first class (albeit at Stockholm prices!) The hotel were happy to arrange a late checkout for us at no charge.

Major plus points: Size of the room, comfort of the bed, instant hot water, location, style, service

Very small grumbles: no drawers for jumpers/underwear (only hanging rails), hairdryer where you have to continuously press a button to make it work (this gives me thumb ache!), the restaurant was closed for the entire duration of our stay in the first week of January.

Overall, I would have no hesitation in recommending the Nobis. It is a great place. Hunt around on the web and it can be good value too.

My stay at Nobis Hotel was perfect from start to finish. I arrived at noon and got access to my room immediately. I had booked a single room at a promotion rate of three nights for the price of two, and was upgraded to a double room on the fourth floor with a magnificent view of the square. The hotel is contemporary in every way. The staff (mostly young, handsome men) is very helpful and polite, perfect behavior, yet relaxed and friendly. The hotel holds many spacious and tasteful areas, the reception and lounge are both very welcoming, as well as the beautiful bar and the two restaurants. The room itself was a little small, but made up for it with a big bathroom with floor heating and Byredo products. The location of the hotel is the best. If you stay here, nothing is far off. I also got a late check out (14.00) with no extra charge at departure. This hotel is for sure striving for that fifth star thus hurry up and book it while it is still such amazing value for money. The only small complaint is the entrance stairs. Even though staff spotted me immediately when struggling with my heavy suitcase, it would be a challenge for disabled or elderly people. Otherwise... absolutely flawless.

One of the most recent hotels in the city, great locations and beautifully designed. Lovely lounge for a drink, cozy bistrot for a quick lunch and very good Italian restaurant for dinner. Good service and elegant atmosphere. We had a deluxe room on the fourth floor and it was okay but quite small. Fine for a weekend in the city, with a nice balcony overlooking the square (not very useful in late December), but the promised 25 to 33 square meters deluxe room was a bit smaller.
