“Very nice hotel, great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2014

This hotel is located in an 1800's era building, but very well maintained and updated. Great location in "City" area, only a block from the Transportation Center (train to Arlanda Airport, etc.), on sightseeing bus route. Excellent free breakfast buffet featuring traditional Swedish breakfast offerings (even included caviar) as well as items for American tastes. Great restaurants and park nearby. Remember this is Sweden, don't expect air conditioning (or washcloths in bathroom) and shower was a little different from those in the US or Canada, but otherwise "up to standards" in every regard. Great value for the price.

Thank you for taking your time and coming back to us with this review. I am happy to hear that you enjoy our location and breakfast. Just like you mentioned, it's indeed very uncommon in Sweden to have air condition, since we have so few really warm days. In a normal year, we only have 5-7 really warm summer days, and the rest is pretty decent or cold. I am even though happy to read that you had a enjoyable stay.

Welcome back to us!
Best regards,

Stockholm can be very expensive for hotel accommodations and while Adlon is not a budget hotel, it provides excellent value for money. Ideal location across the road from Central Station and the Arlanda Express train to airport. If travelling solo, the single rooms are small but adequate for a short stay (they did have a double room for single occupancy for a higher fee when I booked, but I noticed it is now not offered as an option). If you do not need hot items for breakfast, Adlon provides an extensive continental buffet with a rich array of cold meats and cheese including soft-boiled eggs and herrings (superior gravlax during midsummer!). Wi-Fi access is now free (different from a few years back). Excellent base for exploring the centre of Stockholm.

Dear guest,
thank you for taking your time and writing this review.

I am glad to hear that you found good value for your money here at Adlon. The location of the hotel is indeed very hard do beat. You are very correct regarding the slightly bigger single rooms, they are no longer bookable since they have been remade.

Have a great summer and I want to wish you a warm welcome back to Elite Hotel Adlon!

To start, the staff at the hotel are very nice and helpful. They gave tips as to where to find good food and other info. If taking the Arlanda Express or the shuttle coach, the hotel is less than 5 minutes (walking) from each. There are a bunch of quick serve food restaurants available (cafes, Burger King, McDonalds, Subway, 7/11 etc) plus alot of sit down restaurants and pubs (sushi bars, bistro bars, English/Irish style pubs). Most of the museums are a 35-50 minute walk as well. Other reviews mentioned it was quite noisy but I did not find that. I would recommend this hotel to other travelers and I would stay there again!

Room Tip: I would recommend requesting a room away from the main door to the floor as people let it slam and i...

My stay here was comfortable and enjoyable but wasn't outstanding not saying that it was a horrible place, as it wasn't. But all in all lovely place, food was lovely, service also above board. For me sleeping is everything on a holiday when you want to relax and sleep in and I found the rooms and beds just great! Location was a good spot as it was near the station and I didn't get lost at all which was a bonus when I had a wonder by myself.

This hotel serves as an excellent base for exploring Stockholm, particularly if you arrive on Arlanda Express from the airport. The hotel is well kept, clean, with friendly staff. The breakfast is good with many choices. The room was small, but otherwise served my needs well. I was also happy to be allowed to check in at 8AM, since I'd arrived on an overnight flight - this helped get me settled nicely.

I chose this hotel as it offerd the best value for money, with the of needing a central location in relation to the station. It wasn't cheap by British standards but was resaonable in comparison to other similar hotels in the area,( not including the opportunity of sleeping in a dormitory or underground - neither of which appealed)

I was very impressed with the staff during my stay and had no reason to grumble about anything in the room. I think the fussier types might say the mattress was too thin and the interesting choice of wallpaper might have kept me a awake at night if I hadn't been so tired . there was no milk in the rooms but if you ask at the reception they are more than happy to provide a cupful at no charge for your tea and coffee.

the bathroom was clean and the breakfast copious and delicious,
oh and despite being right over tthe vasagaten which could have been very noisy, the rooms were surprisingly sound proofed.

i also liked the security peephole in my door . it was a nice touch which I thought other hotels could copy

Room Tip: can't think of one really. I suppose the first floor may be noisier being near the restaurant an...

I stayed here fpr two nights with my 5-year-old as we travelled together with another single dad and his two kids. The hotel is conveniently located near the trains and also right across the street from the bus that takes you to the attractions on Djurgården.

I have no complaints whatsoever. Staff a bit reserved, perhaps, but room - though quite small (not that it mattered much) - was clean, bed nice and bathroom small but nice.

I enjoyed the breakfast and there was both hot and cold breakfast. Breakfast room slightly on the small side.
