“Junior suite - Great for families”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

Spent one night at Birger Jarl and was pleasantly surprised. Everything worked like a charm, from check in to check out. Nice rooms (a bit stuffy though), good location and nice breakfast. Can recommend their Junior suite when travelling with young children, a bit pricey but so worth it.

The Hotel was OK &nice and quiet- Breakfast was good
Value was terrible - I paid almost €300/night for a basic room.
But curtains were too short - waking me up in morning, and this is what causes my low vote

When searching for a hotel in Stockholm it was difficult to find anything decent for around £100 per night, using a comparison site we ended up booking the Birger Jarl via Travel Republic for £114 including breakfast, much cheaper than booking direct in this instance.
The hotel is clean modern and the staff very helpful and polite.
Our room was a little on the small side but had everything you need for a short break: coffee/tea making facilities, mini bar with complimentary mineral water, iron, hair-drier etc. large modern flat screen TV and very comfortable bedding. The bathroom was pretty small but had a nice walk in shower.
The breakfast buffet was very good, lots of choice and decent coffee and yes you can have Swedish meatballs for breakfast!!

Great hotel near Birger jarlsgatan street. The breakfast was very good, with a lot of great options (try the meatballs, they are fantastic). The rooms were big enough for 3 persons, with a great bathroom.
There are a lot of pubs in the neighborhood.

Hotel is pretty, stuff is nice thou the rooms look a little older now but you have everything you need there including big tv and minibar with some mineral water for free. The brakfast bufee was amazing, good quality food. Thy only down side is that you need to walk some time to get into the downtown but its nothing terrible, takes max to 10-15 min.

Hotel Birger Jarl is a nice hotel with a good location in the center of Stockholm. The staff was very nice and helpful, and the room was fine although a bit small. Breakfast was also very good with a good selection.

If you like ikea furniture, this is the place to be. But make sure that you are traveling light because most rooms have no drawers!!!!! No bath tub either. Breakfast is good and there is free wifi in room and public area. Several English channels and no HBO.
Pack your toothbrush/paste and slippers, no such things in European hotels.
Short walk to bus station and metro so the place is quite good, a super market at the corner and 7-11 nearby
