“Great Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013

The hotel is located right next door to Central Station which was very convenient for us as we arrived by train to the city. We weren't expecting to be able to check in until the afternoon but as we'd arrived at about 7am on the night train we were keen to leave our bags at the hotel, so we were really pleased when we were told our room was ready for us and we could check in early! The room itself was very modern and extremely comfortable, couldn't fault it. Breakfast was amazing, so much choice. We'd recommend this hotel and would definitely stay there again.

We only stayed one night so didn't have time to use the facilities of the gym etc.

First, the location is excellent, just blocks from shopping and only a block from the main train station. The hotel obviously has a high turnover of guests and is staffed to handle it.
Second, the staff not only have a high level of English but are also involved with their guests in a professional manner. Nayra at the front desk went far beyond duty to aid us in the recovery of our luggage which was lost by KLM.
We found the rooms to be par with Radisson standards and can voice no complaints there. The breakfast buffet was typically European and inclusive. The Fisk Restaurant off the lobby was not only excellent but fairly priced, at least for Stockholm. Would stay here again and recommend it.

A bit disappointing by Radisson standards. It is however in a brilliant location a few yards from central station with the high speed link to the airport taking just twenty minutes.

Room and in particular the bathroom was in need of a makeover. Breakfast was a very poor experience - no milk and no clean available cutlery - all met with complete indifference and a lack of apology from the waiting staff. All too busy clearing up to be bothered with the inconvenience of guests.

Taking into account the cost i would probably stay somewhere else next time.

We apologize for the disappointing service you received from our staff at breakfast.
We appreciate you bringing this matter to our attention. Our team works hard to make sure our guests are comfortable and receive our best “Yes I Can!” service but this time we apparently did not meet your expectations and I am sorry for that.

We hope for another opportunity to exceed your expectations.

Having read a few negative comments about the rooms I guess you get what you pay for! My husband and I returned from Stockholm yesterday and had a wonderful stay in the Radisson Blu but we did go for a superior room and were rewarded with Room 901 at the very top of the hotel (the only room on this floor). The view over the water and the boats was truly wonderful and a delight to wake up to, and to return to, every day. The weather was mixed with some pretty hefty showers but one night we were entertained by a spectacular thunderstorm from one of our huge bedroom windows! Cannot rate the bar or restaurant as we did not eat or drink in the hotel due to the hefty prices (typical of Stockholm top end establishments), preferring to find more reasonable bars and restaurants off the beaten track. However the view will stay will us for a long time and, I believe, will be hard to beat anywhere in the world!

Room Tip: Ask for room 901 at the top of the hotel!

I stayed here as part of a very brief business trip.
The service on the front desk was exemplary, not just helpful but genuinely friendly and engaging.
The Sky Bar on the top floor was lovely with a nice view to the river.
It'll of our party ended up with disability room, though none of us were disabled. This was certainly not a problem! Mine was clearly the larger of these rooms as I had plenty of room to manoeuvre both sides of my bed, where as my collegues in the centre of the hotel didn't. All the rooms were clean though I would say mine was very tired and in need of refurbishment. The carpet was wrinkled in the middle from years of use. Again this was just aesthetic and the beds were comfy and all was clean.
The location was superb. We were taken to the Ice Bar, which was brilliant fun, and it turned out it was literally just around the corner.
We had no problem finding somewhere to eat in the area and it seemed the main shopping streets were there too.
Brilliant selection for breakfast and plenty of it. Also the hot food was not just hot but also fresh!

Room Tip: If getting a single room it seemed that ones at the end of the corridor were a bit larger. My room w...

Excellent location - right next to Arlanda Express train station and Central Station. The breakfast buffet had a great slection of items including Swedish pancakes. The pool area was small but it was never busy. The business class room we had was very small and we had little room to put our clothing. Our room included wi fi . The front desk staff were very informative and helpful.

Excellent location in the middle of downtown convenient walking distance to stores and right next to T-Centralen, Pendeltåg commuter rail and Arlanda Express train to the airport.
Rooms were well-appointed and of moderate size. We had a "Family Suite" which had a living room with fold out couch attached to the bedroom with a queen bed.
