This hotel was a pleasant surprise for us at the end of a three-week trip across N. Europe. The Rival, tucked away in a neighborhood of art galleries and parks for local families was a real treat. Nothing to complain about, and much to praise. The decor, true to the hotel's movie theatre past (it's owned by by Benny Andersson of ABBA fame), was creative and cheerful. Bright colors throughout, but not garish. Three excellent cocktail bars and lounges make sure the travel-wary get well provisioned. The room was spacious, the beds super-comfy. If you like to use public transport, you will love this location. Just one block from Stockholm's user-friendly subway. When you plan your day of departure, be aware the hotel is firm on checkout times. No extensions!
