“Beautiful old charm combined with newly renovataion”
Reviewed July 13, 2011

f you want something different the the ordinary chainhotel, this is the place for you! We had a huge room facing cornerview of Strandvagen. This ment closing the windows at night to enable some sleep. Due to the lack of aircondition it gave us some hot nights. But who cares the room was full of charm with old furniture but new beds, the extrabeds for the kids were great and very comfortable. Plenty of space even if we had a dubbelbed, two extrabeds, a sofa with two armchairs and a desk. Tv on the room and a nice bathroom.
Breakfast was like having it at a friends house, small breakfastroom and no prepacked, sliced cheese.But it has everything you can possibly need for breakfast. There is a guestcomputer in the tv-room downstairs.
Location is great with walking distance to Djurgarden witch meens you don´t have to wait for the crowded bus nr 47. The tram and the bus run on Strandvagen just outside the hotel so you can make your own choice.

I only have positive things to say about my stay at the hotel. The staff was helpful and friendly, the room was very cozy and clean (everything looked new) and the breakfast delicious. I booked the smallest single room, but they bumped me up to a larger room with a queen-size bed without any extra cost. I will surely stay at this hotel again!

The time in the Hotel was very good. It is located on riverside in old beautifull historical building about 5 minutes walking to subway and 15 minutes walking to the Royal Palace and the old town.
The rooms are simple with retro charm, but comfortable. There are TV, shower with toilet, safe box, air condition.
The beds are comfortable. Free WiFi was available in the room. There is sauna in the hotel . Everyday breakfast was very nice.
The staff is very helpful and friendly.

I stayed at Hotel Esplanade in August for more than two weeks with my wife. We stay here every time we are in Stockholm; we have tried a number of other hotels, but they all lack the Esplanade's charm and homely feel. The location could not be better and the staff is very professional and friendly. Maria, the manager, is great. Towards the end of our stay, I had to extent us for a few days and she managed to get us a wonderful room, despite the hotel being almost fully booked. We will be back! PS. I forgot to mention the fantastic breakfast...

I frequently travel to Stockholm for business and I always make a point to stay here. The service is friendly, the location is superb, the rooms have a certain retro charm which creates a sense of have travelled back in time. If you like the standard cookie-cutter modern design hotels you go next door (and pay more) but if you want a place that will give even a business trip something extra then this is the place for you.

Well preserved cosy place with friendly staff, large rooms and nice view. Ask for rooms which not looks at Strandvagen, if you don't like traffick noise but you will not have heartbreaking panoramic view.

Beautiful view to the Nybroviken bay!
The building was erected arround 1905 and the interior is beatiful decorated. Our room (12) is facing the road and the only downsides I saw where the fact that is somewhat noisy from the trafic in front of the hotel and there is a door linking the next room and one can hear the neighbour voice through it. Anyway, this door is blocked by the wardrobe, so you don't have to worry that the neighbour is gonna pay you an unexpected visit. ;)
Front desk is allways available, ready to help and really "customer oriented".
Breakfast is good and diversified but not diversified enough for a vegetarian. The restaurant is very small and beautiful but is opened only for breakfast.
There is free internet access through wi-fi link, but I couldn't make an internet voicecall (to tell my friends how much I enjoy the stay) because during the day the signal was poor most of the time and the link broke often.
The location of the hotel is at 10 minutes walk from the Royal Palace and the old town! I liked that too, because we have stayed 10 days and being so central it was an advantage in every day:)
It was the first time we have visited Stockholm and this hotel helped us even more to fall in love with the city. Truly, Stockholm is the Venice of the Nord!
