Stayed for 4 nights in March. Room was basic, 2 bunk beds a chair and a table but was perfectly clean and warm. Communal kitchen , toilet and showers were also well kept. Friendly and helpful staff. 2 mins walk from supermarket, which you will probably need to survive the high costs of Stockholm! Located on the supposedly trendy Sodermalm island which is also home to lots of the locations in Steigg Larson's Millenium trilogy.
T-Bana station is about 5 mins walk away after which the medieval town is only a couple of stops away and the centre is one more. I would recommend getting the travel card, a 3 day one cost me £23 but it covers you for all underground and bus fares. A downside was the noise, we got woken at various points by cleaners, carpenters other guests. Also there wasn't much of an atmosphere if you wanted to meet people and have a few drinks of an evening although that could have been because we were there in quiet season. Also, make sure you have plenty of money before going on holiday to Stockholm, especially if you like eating and drinking out, it is beautiful but very very pricey.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel Zinkensdamm is a 3-star Superior Hotel situated in the midst of the picturesque plantation plots by Tantolunden at Sodermalm. Despite the central location, the hotel is surrounded by several green areas which infuse a relaxing atmosphere. The decorations of the hotel rooms are inspired by the old south of Stockholm while still maintaining all the modern facilities. All rooms are provided with private shower and wc as well as a flat-screen TV with free cable channels. Zinkensdamm Hotel can offer a wide range of rooms, from a single room for the lone traveler to a family room to the traveler visiting Stockholm with kindred. The green areas in the area offer lovely jogging tracks and path ways in a cultural-historical environment. Feel free to upgrade to one of our superior rooms and get a mini-bar and tea/coffeemaker in the room. These types of rooms consist of either a double bed or two separate singlebeds. In the morning we set the table for our generous breakfast buffet with scrambled eggs, bacon, yoghurt with berries, soured milk, various types of juices, coffee/tea, freshly baked bread, fruits and a wide range of different cold cuts and spreads to put on the bread. The hotel is constantly being renovated, yet maintaining the special atmosphere of the genuine Sodermalm. ... more less
