“Clean, Modern, Perfect Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2009

I thought Hotel Birger Jarl was fantastic. The room was modern, clean, comfortable and quiet. Well, the doors are heavy and do tend to slam, but otherwise, it was quiet.

Location preference is different for everyone, but personally, I thought the location was ideal. It is 3 blocks away from a subway stop (only 1 stop from Hötorget, which is a main area of the city), and about a 15 or 20 minute walk to the center of town (Sergels Torg area). Stockholm is a very walkable city, and I like the idea of staying just slightly outside of the madness. The hotel also puts you relatively close to Vasaparken, which I thought was a really beautiful area, and with lots of good restaurants over there. But probably not a spot you'd wander to if staying further south in the city.

When I go back to Stockholm I will definitely stay at Birger Jarl again.

Totally recommend this hotel! The breakfast is awsome, the staff friendly, the cocktails in the bar are fab... don't bother looking anywhere else. Would definitely stay here again!

Hotel was very clean, reception staff somewhat unhelpful & the room was so, so small. I had to put some of the furniture out in the hall to unpack my bags.

I would never stay there again & woud discourage any friends from doing so also.

We visit Stockholm several times each year. Hotel Birger Jarl is our home away from home. We are treated like old friends and feel the same about the staff. The breakfast is wonderful. We wouldn't stay anywhere else. The Christmas tree display is great fun. Don't hesitate to stay at the Hotel Birger Jarl.

Girls from Grantsburg!

Seven of us stayed here for a weekend in Nov 08. The hotel is fairly easy to locate although it is about 15 mins walk from the city centre. Reception staff were friendly and the hotel was quite pleasant. The rooms were rather small, but clean. I had a rather odd lamp on the wall which was powered by a trailing, diagonal cable leading to a power socket (see picture). The bathroom was clean, though it had the most unusual plumbing I've ever seen on a bath (see picture). Breakfast was fine. The bar prices were pretty high and seemed even more expensive than Stockholm prices generally. For example, a bottle of wine at the bar was about £25 ($41 USD) and a beer was about £5 ($8 USD). But, overall the hotel was pleasant and I would stay there again.

Fantastic experience in a just-out-from center hotel. This is a typical scandinavian hotel in layout and design, but they've done a nice job personalizing it and making things high quality and the experience pleasant, starting with water jugs out in the lobby as you walk in, very nice on a summer day.

The room was good sized, very clean and had a new TV and great shower. Beds were comfortable and warm. Service was prompt and very professional. The business center is a small room with 2 computers but there wasn't an issue getting time, and printing is free and easy.

Food was good, breakfast at any rate, and drinks typically pricey, but that's par for the course in Sweden.

The hotel is about 5-10 mins walk from the main parts of town, but gives you quick access (3-5 mins) to the metro, and quick walk to other interesting areas. No complaints!
