Radisson Blu Royal Viking Hotel, Stockholm
Ranked #54 of 154 Hotels in Stockholm
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Stayed there only for two nights while travelling on business in Stockholm. The hotel is very conveniently located right next to the Central Rail Station. Breakfast was very good with a wide choice of different meals. Other than that, the room was clean but rather small with a view towards the breakfast hall. Free Internet worked well. There were several restaurants near the hotel, but otherwise you need to take a 20-minute walk to see the main city attractions. Overall a good place to stay if you are on a business trip.

There was nothing wrong with the hotel other than the neighborhood wasn't very interesting. Service was fine. The restaurant in the hotel was good but quite expensive. The breakfast was good. However unless you benefit from being across the street from the train station, the neighborhood and location required a bit of walk to get to more interesting parts of town.

I have now stayed in 6 radissons plus many Best Western's this summer. I gave this hotel a 3 - average rating because I felt I needed space to give the better hotels 4's and 5's. While I might prefer a different hotel/location which had charm or location - this was quite functional - and literally about 50 paces from the entrance to the central train which was quite nice on leaving.

They also had a business center with free use of computers and internet.

I worked in Stockholm a few years ago and visited several times afterwards on business using this hotel. I loved Stockholm in the Summer, it is one of, if not THE, loveliest cities in Europe and the World. What makes it so special is all the beautiful waterfronts and colourful buildings. I thoroughly recommend it for a Summer break and do include a trip out on the archipelago (e.g. to Sandhamn).

Marifred / Gripsholm Castle and Drottningholm Palace are also great trips on Lake Malaren. It is lovely to just walk around the parkland and waterfronts of the city. The Stadhuset (although much more modern than you would think) is a good tour inside (plus the Tower) and if the weather is not so good, there is the marvellously restored Vasa (museum). Also I could add Millesgarden (sculpture garden) on Lindingo. There is really lots to do and see.

You will have no trouble finding good food as food outlets of all varieties abound. Stockholm is very cosmopolitan and feels more like an Italian city in the Summer than somewhere so Northern. If you are mainly a vegetarian like myself, there are plenty of Italian restaurants that will have suitable choices and there are two especially good vegetarian restaurants: Hermans (buffet but good choice excellently cooked and presented plus very reasonable for Stockholm prices and Lao Wai (Chinese vegetarian) for something more exotic and unusual (although closed much of the long Summer vacation period so check first). All other e.g. Indian, Thai cuisines are also well represented in Stockholm.

The only downside is that Sweden is definitely not cheap for international visitors and if you want to keep to a reasonable budget - forget about quaffing wine down with your meals!

I used this hotel again when visiting in Summer of August 2013 for a pleasurable Summer break with my wife. I would choose it because of its central location (although getting around Stockholm on the excellent public transport system is not a problem and for anyone who is fit most of the sites are also within walking range of each other). But also because I just know it to be a good hotel (unless you are looking for marvellous waterfront views etc) serving an unbeatable breakfast. It did not disappoint again. My wife loved Stockholm like me and was very pleased with the hotel room (just a standard double) and its breakfast choices. You can eat virtually anything you would want for breakfast from bacon, eggs, hams, cheeses etc to multiple types of freshly cut fruit to multiple breads / rolls / croissants and even pancakes and maple syrup!

This hotel does what is says for a 4 star hotel, with good clean rooms and excellent range of food etc, central location plus a little more reasonable than some of the other 4 star choices. Free internet covering 2 devices is available in all rooms as seems to be a standard price differentiation from this hotel chain.


The only problems would be that

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.

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!
