“Hotel with personality, vibrant neighbourhood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2014

We visited this hotel late July, accompanied by our two kids of 7 and 10. I will quickly summarize our opinion.
Good points:
- the location - very lively neighbourhood; during the weekend gets even more active, with tens of locals in vintage cars going around, plenty of bars and nice restaurants. We found ear plugs in the room and were initially a bit worried about what it might have implied, but there was really no use for them although our room was facing the bullevard and we had two week-end nights there
- the rooms have personality, are nicely decorated. Our kids adored the toy puppies they found int he room and their bunk beds
- the breakfast was great, with plenty of special (culinary) touches plus a variety of areas where breakfast could be had (practically including all the reception area, the outside terrace, a higher level decorated as an old style library and a very appreciated kids area). Having stayed five days, for us it was a very welcome detail, to be able to change the breakfast decor.
- reception staff very nice and efficient

Week points
- although the rooms were absolutely clean and comforable, the hotel gives a (slight only) feeling of weariness - the carpets on the stairs, the worn out and screatched not very visible corners of some furniture, some doors and the base of the elevators... Only small details really at this point that can be ignored now but probably not for long.

Great Hotel in a Central Location. Surrounded by 2 subway stops and a 15 min walk from T-Centralen. Close to almost all the major sights. The hotel was well kept. Breakfast was a great start of the day where you do not need to eat a big lunch. Keep in mind, this in the central drinking location. It will be loud at night, but never felt unsafe.

I stayed at this hotel during my last visit to Stockholm 15 years ago and remembered a bright hotel with a large hotel room and current ikea-esque furniture.

My room this time was tiny, both the room and the bathroom. The furniture was old and beat up and there was hardly any room for luggage.

The breakfast area was crowded with traffic jams and not enough room to sit.

You can feel the history of this hotel glowing as soon as you walk into the reception. Our family room was spacious and lovely old style, yet with modern ammenities.
Reception staff were very friendly. The breakfast area can get a bit busy in the morning, but nothing too much. Our only challenge was the room was facing the local party area, so could be a bit noisy at night. However, the hotel did provide earplugs and seem to have done all to solve this as a much as possible.

Location is great. Close to harbour, old town, and bus and tram lines.

There were two adults and two children travelling and we took this hotel as a part of a ferry trip. The location was excellent. We walked to the hotel from Viking Line terminal and then continued our way to Gröna Lund. We left our luggage there so that we would not have to carry those with us when enjoying ourselves in Gröna Lund or when checking attractions of the city.

Staff was very helpful and joyful. All of our questions were answered and the stay was also pleasant.

Breakfast was very good. The room was big (family room) and the interior was eye-pleasing.

We had a really joyful stay at Hotel Kung carl, thanks for that!

Hotel is located in the downtown area of the city, walkable to the theatre and boat trips around Stockholm. Great area for sitting outside the hotel. Breakfast very busy but great selection. I was travelling in a group most of the double rooms were excellent but the single room was very small. The desk staff were very friendly and helpful to our many queries. Good hotel but slightly complicated old style lifts. Would recommend to other travellers. Night club outside front may affect your sleep !! Dining room staff top notch!!

Room Tip: Rooms away from entrance side are quieter.

Good breakfast buffet with a large choice and free fruit and coffee available throughout the day. Good fast WiFi. The single room I had was extremely small and unbearably hot (no fan or AC), but when I asked at reception the lady was very helpful and friendly and upgraded me to another room which had AC (and was bigger). Very friendly and helpful staff. Location is also good, just a short walk from the waterfront and about 15 minutes from the Arlanda Express train station. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: Some rooms don't have AC so inquire about this when you book / check in.
