I booked a single room which was small but had everything I needed. Reception was very helpful when I had trouble with my luggage. The layout of the hotel is a bit weird though, it doesn't look like a hotel because the restaurant terrace in front and you had to walk through the restaurant to get to the elevator, as someone with social anxiety I found this quite embarrassing with 2 huge suitcases being stared at by all those people having lunch. My room was on the 5th floor and despite a warning from the hotel that there would be a festival right outside during my stay I must say there was minimal noise and all in all the room was very quiet. Breakfast was ok, there were a lot of options to choose from but the serving space was quite small, making it difficult to pick sometimes when there were a lot of people. I think I was also one of the more younger guests as I only saw older couples here during my stay.

Dear SaniNeherm,

Thank you for taking the time to write about your stay with us. We truly appreciate it!

We agree that our property is not like any other hotel when it comes to layout. The building dates back to the early 18th century, and the hotel’s nooks and crannies and rooms contain carefully preserved woodwork and details from a past era. We carefully renovated the building into our hotel without destroying the original floor plans which meant we could not take down any original walls, only add new ones. This makes our hotel truly uniq and we are very proud of our historic setting.

Thank you again and we hope to get the chance to welcome you back to Stockholm soon again.

Best regards,
Julia Landmark Clark

My wife and I stayed in their small room and there was no room for luggage or to circulate around. This room is suitable for one person or for backpackers. My strategy of staying in the smallest room in the best hotel really backfired here! The staff was attentive and helpful. The location was excellent. The common areas were crowded but well utilized. I know I got what I paid for but #3 hotel in Stockholm? I doubt it. A basic room in a larger chain hotel like the Radisson or Sheraton close to the Historic Center may be a better deal if prices are competitive.

Room tip: Avoid the small room if you are travelling with your spouse or with luggage

Dear Foncho11,

Thank you for taking your time to write your review.

As we all know, staying in hotels is a lot about expectations and how well the property lives up to them. We have managed to become #3 (#2 for quite some time, as well) by doing our best to live up to our guests expectations and also by being honest about our hotel, our product.

One of these product aspects is that several of our rooms are small, some really small, and hence we call one category "Small Double room". This way, we try not to give the wrong expectations, and it has worked rather well; many of our guests who have booked this category have been well aware of that the rooms are small.
We are also very thorough to explain the room size on our website.

The building our hotel is housed in dates back to 1764 and it's listed as cultural landmark. This means the developers had to adhere to strict building code when renovating it from office to hotel (e.g. walls cannot be moved or removed, only added). So comparing it to a hotel that was built in either the 1970's or early 2000's, using a modern module system, is actually rather unfair.

But what really intrigues me is that you purposely booked a small room in a hotel that has notoriously small rooms, and that you then were disappointed that you had a small room.

In any case, we would of course love to have you come stay with us again and perhaps have you reconsider your previous strategy, and perhaps book one our Queen Superior or King Deluxe rooms?


Sincerely,

Adam von Mentzer
Chef Concierge

I spent 2 weeks in Europe on my trip staying in all sorts of hotels from old boutiques to the big worldwide names and the Hotel Kungsträdgården was by far my favorite. It was the perfect mix of modern and classic. There was in room air conditioning which worked great and was a must in the summer. The room itself was pretty small but I was traveling by myself and was the perfect size for just me. It had a cozy feel to it. The WiFi worked great and never stalled or had any issues. The breakfast was super and they even had Swedish pancakes! There is a shopping mall basically across the street. Tons of restaurants nearby. It’s an easy walk to Gamla Stan and the central station. The bed was comfortable and the curtains kept out enough sun to let me sleep in. In all I had a fantastic stay here.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel and will definitely return. Staff was very friendly and restaurants and primary parts of the city are walking distance. Breakfast is included and a very nice way to start the day.

Although the hotel is a little hard to find at first, its secluded location is very convenient to all the attractions. Five to ten minute walk to old town one way five minute walk to the dock area the other. Breakfast excellent. Only thing lacking is a view as hotel is located on a road that truly is more of an alley so facing building only 20-30 feet away.
Quiet at night so easy to sleep
