We stayed at Rival over New Year's Eve (Stockholm really is a New Year's Eve city!) and our stay was perfect from the first to the last minute. Due to a cancellation of our flight we had to change our booking only a few days before we arrived, but they handled everything extremely professional and friendly. The Hotel is close to the tube station "Mariatorget" on the red line. This station is only three stops away from the Central Station which makes the journey from the airport really comfortable (just take the bus or express train from Arlanda and change to the tube at the Central Station). Our standard room was located at the 5th floor which meant absolutely no noise from the bar area - even on New Year's Eve. We loved the little extras like the crisp bed linen, the possibility to rent DVD's at the reception, the free internet access at the lobby etc. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They provided us with tips for New Year's Eve like the best places to watch the fireworks etc. The buffet style breakfast was extensive with the possibility to order pancakes, eggs and most important - decent coffee, cappuchino etc. We also had a really nice dinner at the Bistro one evening. As there seemed to be many locals you did not get a "hotel restaurant feeling" at all. I would definitly stay at Hotel Rival again.
