I like the simplicity of the room, just enough to make you feel at home. The elevator though is not friendly especially when you are in a hurry without you keys. All facilities are good including the breakfast, just right for weekend travelers and is very near to the train station. Anybody travelling to Stockholm for the first time will not get lost looking for this hotel. So conveniently located. The lobby though has to be changed and expanded. Overall, the cozyness of the rooms I will not forget.

Room Tip: The room facing the main street as the hotel faces a side street.

Freys' location is central. The staff were like family. The room was cozy and it felt like a relative's guest room (of course, a more stylish version). I specially liked the window that gave me a view of the side street. The breakfast buffet was varied and filling. For me, Freys felt like home.

This is a normal sized hotel in central Stockholm, which does not offer anything special or out of the ordinary as they go out with in its commercial to the customers, its not a "BOUTIQUE hotel"! Small rooms and in our case, faces into the courtyard of the hotel, and a small toilet. The breakfast was good. Nice that "Belgobaren" was next door to the hotel where the range of Belgian beers and Mussler were in plenty, if you like that.

Room Tip: Good location and close to the trainstation

Freys Hotel is right off the train station (approximately 1/2 block away). Very easy to walk to and from if you have a lot of luggage. There's free wi-fi here and free breakfast. The breakfast buffet is very tasty with a lot of different options. The room was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was slightly smaller than I'm used to, but its very European.

I stayed in Freys Hotel Stockholm from 15 to 18 August 2013. It is a medium sized four star facility with 160 bed rooms. Having read some adverse comments in the Trip Advisor I was apprehensive. Experience supported the criticism. The hotel furniture is dated. The beds in the standard single room are really narrow, the mattress measures 34 inches. The room had no mirror, so one has to use the bath room mirror. The TV has just one English channel – Sky News. The bath room has a generous quantity of shampoo and body lotion, but true to the Trip Advisor reports, no hand soap. Sitting on the bed was a teddy bear; a hard- sell promotion, which is singularly inappropriate. The hotel also promotes its shampoo and body lotion, stressing their quality which is OK but nothing special. The staff was polite and helpful but not well clued on sight- seeing.
Having gone through the negatives, please be prepared for a shock. The occupancy was one hundred percent. Why? The most important reason is location, though this advantage in not exclusive , at least four other hotels are in the same neighborhood- Nordic Light, Nordic Sea, Adlon and Central. Even so, it is comforting to see the hotel sign board as soon as you step out of the Central Station. The same station is also the final stop of the Airport Bus. You need no guidance to reach the hotel and no porter either. Some of the prominent tourist attractions are within a walking distance including the City Hall, Swedish Opera, Oscar Theatre and the ticket office for guided tours. The same applies to the convenience stores and fast food outlets. Another reason for high occupancy could be its economical rates.
And there are some other little mercies, The breakfast is up to the mark and the service fairly efficient, though omelets are not an option. The bed room has two guides, for shopping and for eating out. It also has curtains, not a normal feature of Swedish hotels. The bath room, providing just a shower, is equipped for the handicapped. It also has a towel warmer. Tea and coffee facility is available in the room, even if without a creamer. And I was amazed at the scale of seating capacity in the lobby, enough for fifteen people without looking congested.
On the whole the hotel is a fair choice for a short stay, say up to three days. To avoid noise one should opt for a higher floor.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a larger bed and go to a higher floor to avoid noise

This hotel would have to be one of the best. From the minute I walked in the door the staff were very friendly. Very welcoming. It is very close to the train and bus station. Lovely lobby with free internet. And the room, wow, so homely and cosy. I just loved it. Comfortable bed and a sofa as well. The breakfast was delicious, and the teddy on the bed was pretty unique. I highly recommend this hotel. You will not be disappointed. Right near all the action as well. All good.

Central station to the airport is only 5 min walk. Though room seems a bit small, you have a sofa in your room which helps you relax after all day walk. Department stores, Kiosks and shopping areas are very close from the hotel. Recommend to go to complementary breakfast before 7am so that you dont need to queue up for food with other package tourists.
