We stayed at this hotel with friends between the 14 - 17 March 2013. What a lovely hotel it is in the Centre of Gamla Stan the historic heart of Stockholm within walking distance of all the major attractions. The staff are friendly and the rooms are of a good standard and spacious (Room 313).
Although not large the decor is of a good standard with pictures of the Royal family in the rooms and around the hotel. You do feel you are surrounded by a lot of history.The Hotel serves free tea and coffee in the reception area in the afternoon although this is not a large space. One of the great things about the hotel is the breakfast room which is light and airy with a large range of choice on offer which ranges from continental to pancakes bacon and eggs as well as meatballs. There is no reason for anyone to go hungry. The hotel provides free wi-fi. The hotel does have a lift which in itself is quant. It is small however and somewhat cramped although for our party this was not an issue. I would recommend the Hotel Rica and if it wasn't for the high cost of living in Stockholm would consider staying her again. My only observation was that the hotel does not supply the usual vanity provision in the bathroom but instead large bottles of shampoo affixed to the shower.
