“Good location, great breakfast spread!”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

We stayed a week here. Location is great. Walking distance to most sights and is only about 10 minutes' walk away from the shopping street, Drottningatan. Near to the central station as well as Arlanda Express terminal. Kebab and burger shops across the road. The room was quite small though, with only a hanging rail for clothes and no kettle provided (they brought one when I requested for one). But it was otherwise clean and very comfortable. Breakfast spread was the most impressive.

Booked a room without windows and was suprised that it felt so bright and fresh. No feeling of beeing in a "box"...
Really nice breakfast, with lot to choose from.
A big but cosy lobby with nice cosy places to sit and games to play and papers to read.

It's only 3-5 minutes from central station by walk and the position is very well located. Easy to get the restaurants around the hotel and only around 5 mins by walk to Gamla Stan the old town of Stockholm or to shopping center nearby. The hotel is also clean, warm staff, good breakfast in buffet and got wifi access as well.

Very centrally located hotel which is only few min walk from central train station, bus station and Arlanda Express terminal. Also close by to all city centre attractions and shopping. Standard rooms are quite small, but well fitted with comfortable bed, desk, TV and shower. Free wifi and extensive breakfast menu are a definite plus.

Dear guest,
Thank you so much for your feedback. We are so happy to be able to present this new hotel at such a perfect location, steps away from all transportation you could need during your stay, even sightseeing tours stops right outside our door. Thank you so much for your feedback and welcome back to us!

We should have a theater weekend in Stockholm(Oscarsteatern, Kungsgaten) - close to the main railway and bus station.(i.e.the airport buses to -from Arlanda Airport). The hotel is situated across the street of the theater, and also wiithin 10 miniutes walk from the city(høtorget, NK etc.etc.)
Very nice rooms(must have been recently refurbished), a nice bar at evenings/nights with very good bartenders. But above all; the closeliness to the city is more than perfect.

Dear Guest,
How we love to hear about your enjoyable stay with us. Stockholm is fantastic, and we are situated right in the middle of the Buzz. We now run a very popular cocktail bar and it can be very crowded sometimes – we are very happy of course! We hope you enjoyed some nice cocktails in our cozy lobby, bar and bistro during your stay. Welcome back to us!

Best regards

This hotel was perfectly placed for a 3 day exploration of Stockholm. Just round the corner from the train station, it is across the road from the theatre. The staff are very friendly and all seem to speak good English. My single room on the 5th floor was well appointed and quite comfortable, but absolutely microscopic. The shower room was tiny and about half the size of the bedroom was taken up by the bed. This probably explains the great price that I got. There is a small gym (very handy) and a good restaurant in the lobby. Breakfast was excellent, a buffet affair on a large scale. I would give it 5 out of 5 but for the size of the room.

Room Tip: Check on the size of the room first

Dear guest,
Thank you so much for your feedback. We love to hear you had a lovley stay. For a longer stay we do recommend our superior rooms, larger and with more facilities. Scandic Grand Central can offer many different types of rooms that can apply to different types of budgets and needs. Our new hotel is renovated from an old building built in 1886, so the rooms may vary in size and character. All rooms still have a very nice design with beautiful coulours.
We do hope we have the pleasure to welcome you to us soon again!

Best regards,

Matilda

I normally do not like the Scandic hotels, but I can recommend this one. It is probably the best choice of hotel in Stockholm. Location is perfect, very close to Arlanda Express. The reception staff is friendly and professional. Our suite was very nice and fresh, plenty of space with modern furniture, good sound proofing, and good lighting. Even the AC was working. A special detail was an old fashioned record player (part of a bigger music system) with a collection of records from the seventies!
Breakfast is normally a disaster in big hotels i Scandinavia, but not here. Enough staff to clean tables and replenish the buffet and lots of choices make even the breakfast a good experience.
Since all this is delivered at a reasonable price, I know where to stay next time in Stockholm.
