Perfect for what I was after. Close to everything. Rooms were small but very comfy, great breakfast included with the cost of room. Very friendly staff. A little bit pricey, but nice.

The hotel is a small hotel in the Old City in Stockholm. It has everything you need. A clean room (we had the standard room) which is spacy enough, nice personnel, very good location (walking distance to a lot of parts of Stockholm), very good beds, etc. What you do not get compared to a more pricy, more stars hotel is the spacy lobby.

If you need to park your car, they have a pick up service - very convenient. Goof breakfast which was included in the price.

The only negative thing was that it was a bit noisy (not much, just a couple of short times during the night) when party people were passing by outside the hotel. Not a problem really.

The rooms in this hotel are of the typical small size you find in older central city European hotel buildings, but big enough for a few days. Perfectly clean, nice ensuite bathroom (modern tiling & fittings), modern flat screen TV & wifi included. Room was facing on to the street, no problems with noise (I am a light sleeper).

The hotel style is quite charming, lots of mirrors, stone steps, various bits of antique furniture around. Very helpful staff.

Excellent breakfast - probably goes close to what you can find in a large Scandic hotel. The location is southern (Slussen) end of Gamla Stan, so you can get to Sodermalm, Gamla Stan and the city very easily on foot (or on T bahn if you want). Usually I have stayed a the other Rica (which is perfectly good but not 'interesting') - this one is more fun.

Room Tip: Perfect location,

This hotel was a fantastic choice of place to stay for our short visit to Stockholm. It couldn't have been more convenient for many of the major sights in Stockholm city centre. We were able to walk everywhere. The room itself, although small, was an adequate size for two people to spend 4 nights comfortably. The bathroom was lovely and the beds comfortable. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The choice at breakfast was unbelievable and very tasty!

I would definitely recommend a stay at this Rica hotel as long as you don't mind spending a bit extra on a superb location. Although if you are visiting Stockholm, scrimping and saving is not really going to happen anyway!!!!

Gamla Stan is the ideal location to stay in Stockholm if you’re looking for old school charm & romanticism. Rica Hotel offers you the perfect location without a huge price tag.

The rooms were clean & comfortable with nice decor.

Staff were pleasant and helpful without being overbearing, the hotel had the peaceful, personal charm of a much smaller hotel.

The breakfast is superb with a wide selection to suit all including traditional Swedish fare, enough to fill you up for the day.

If I were to visit Stockholm again I would stay here.
