I was looking a room on a tight budget - but I still wanted it to be nice as I was traveling with my boyfriend. Scandic Klara was the perfect choice! it's about a minute walk from the Central Station tube and about 2 minutes from the Central Station train. It is a lovely hotel and very easy to find (it is huge and opposite a pizza hut). You are right by were all the shops are and about a 5-10 minute walk to the old town. The room was lovely, clean & luxurious. The shower was really lovely and they supply body wash and shampoo. The window overlooked the canteen but that wasnt a problem at all. The breakfast was great as well so much to chose from. Only negative is that more than one toaster would have been helpful! have a great stay

Fantastic location very close to main railway for Arlanda Express. Right in centre of town with shops and restaurants close by. Old town Gamla Stan only 10 mins away by foot.
I had a budget room which was more than adequate, spotlessly clean with a very soft bed. Free wifi.
Breakfast was good but crowded
Excellent choice for a city break

Close to everything and great connections, yet peacefull. I had a single in 6th floor with nice rooftop views. Room was tiny but enough for one person. Very nice breakfast ja friendly staff at the reception.

Very centrally located just a 10mins walk from the station. The room was basic, but clean, quiet and comfortable. The staff were helpful regarding what the hotel offered and providing directions etc. the breakfast spread was great and very fresh, with lots of variety. The area used for breakfast was airy and spacious also.
Good wifi no complaints

A hotel that is very convenient to shopping and sightseeing. Good selection for breakfast...and the breakfast room was lovely being able to open up the roof on fine days.. Clean rooms but sadly the air condition in the room was quite noisey, but very efficient.Helpful and friendly staff.

I stay here for work several times a month. - My only complaint is with the layout of the hotel- unless you have a room near the elevator you will have to go up and down steps which usually is fine... but can be a pain if you have a lot of bags. - If the maids haven't finished cleaning the rooms it can be difficult to get around.
The front deak is always helpful and nice.. and as mentioned it is in a great location

Room Tip: If you will be traveling with many bags.. try to stay closer to the elevator.. small halls with step...

This hotel is about 15 minutes by train to the center of Stockholm. It is a beautiful facility with an excellent desk staff (and the bar is next to the check in desk). The rooms are very spacious by European standards and quite comfortable. Breakfast consists of a large selection and everything is fresh. Our only complaint is that the maid did not pick up dirty glasses/cups.
