Choosed this hotel because it was close to the office - turns out it close to nearly everything! Arlanda, Central Station, shops, Gamla Stan and other islands.
The staff is very friendly and helpful; good wifi and nice breakfast.

The room was very small - had to move table to open a mini-bar.

Checked out around 4am - it was really nice to discover they offer an early breakfast, right what was needed before the flight!

My husband and I was on our 5-year aniversary and stayed here for a weekend. We booked a deluxe room to have something extra, but it was so not worth the extra money. Small and sipmle room, but a comfy bed. The location is excellent and the breakfast is great.

The Rica is centrally located in the heart of Stockholm's shopping center. The lobby has been recently renovated and adequate for a 4-star hotel. Breakfast is very decent and worthy of a 4-star hotel. Staff are friendly, although they didn't seem to understand all requests and looked aloof at times.

The real issue with the Rica are the rooms. These are more 3-star hotel in nature with a mediocre finishing and small sizes.

First and foremost you can't go wrong with the location...a stones throw away from Sergels Torg and the T-Centralen Tunnelbana station means your transport links are covered. If you're the walking type It's a very short stroll to Gamla Stan. The 7 tram will take you to Djurgården in minutes from Sergels Torg (near the Kulturhuset), and your hotel is literally in a retail therapy mecca in the Stockholm area. Second, staff are very friendly and knowledgable of the area, and never hesitant to help with whatever you need. The guy that runs the Klara Restaurant at the hotel is AMAZING, and the food is from my vantage point, amazing, as well as the pastries. Clean and well maintained and GREEN (eco conscious) rooms, with simple Swedish 'form follows function' design...at the end of the day how long are you really gonna be in that room anyway? The breakfast nook is light, airy, and quite an open plan. Only downfall, no alcohol really, but you really do not miss that and there are plenty of places in the city to get that. Free wi-fi...all the important stuff, none of the stuff you don't need.

Room Tip: non smoking.

Stayed in room 620 on the 6th floor. A nice and quiet room overlooking the patio. Clean and efficient room but a tad boring. Nothing wrong with the room but nothing special, a typical soulless room at a 4 star hotel. Comfortable bed. Ecofriendly toiletries - a good choice. Breakfast area was nice and light and offered plenty to choose from, both hot and cold alternatives. The good thing about this hotel is the location, great if you want to go shopping.

Arrived in Stockholm from the US at 6:30 am- got to this hotel by 8:30 am and our room was ready!!! What a wonderful thing. We had a moment then showers and were ready for a day of sightseeing !! Our room was small but comfortable. It looked onto the street but was not very noisy. The staff at the desk was very polite, helpful and spoke English very well. For the cost this is a great hotel to stay in. The breakfast was wonderful- avoid the high time in order to get a good seat.

The hotel is very central. A five minute walk from the station. The single room I had was tiny. So was the bathroom. A definite plus was the breakfast. Lots of choices and a nice open space. They even have paper cups so I had a latte to go.
