I found this hotel to be quite unique with respect to other hotel/b&b's. It has a mini-pub within the hotel, nicely decorated lounge with some antiques etc., The rooms were clean and nicely decorated. I was told that it is one of the oldest hotels in the town and has been traditionally maintained. More points because of the continental breakfast I had here! It is 2 minutes away from the local Metro and when you come back from a long hectic day, you can enjoy a drink at the in-house pub, not to forget with some nice music.

I stayed at Hellsten Hotel after having some rough time to find a room given a conference taking place at the time. I read some reviews in Trip Advisor saying the rooms were too small, but I'm familiar with hotel rooms in Europe, so I decided to stay there anyway. It was the best choice. The hotel is 2 underground stations away from the Central Station (around 5 minutes), or a 15 minute walk. It is in a nice quiet area. The room was extremely comfortable with drapes on top - like a princess bed. Flat screen. Bathroom size was OK. No complaints at all. I would definitely stay there again!

We spent two nights at the Hellsten Hotel and recommend it most highly. The reception staff were extremely professional and helpful and provided a lot of assistance over the course of stay. The Hotel is in a heritage building, so things are connected oddly in places. But the rooms are quaint (we were in attractive top floor garrett) and well-furnished. The breakfast was no great shakes - a little below the standard Swedish fare - but this was offset by an attractive bar, with live music, and lovely restaurant.

The hotel is well situated. It is a few blocks from Stockholm University, three blocks from the compelling pedestrian street that leads straight into the Old Town and has dozens of nice restaurants within a few minutes walk.

The Hellsten is a comfortable and interesting place to stay close to one of the world's great city centres. It is quiet, well-situated and very well managed. Enjoy!!

We stayed here for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the hotel's ambience. The staff were warm and friendly, the location was excellent for walking or using public transport (it took around 15 minutes walking at a brisk pace to get back from the harbour). The breakfast wasn't as extravagant as a 4* in Stockholm I'd stayed in previously, but it was very good. The rooms were quirky, which we enjoyed, since hotel rooms are often a bit too generic and anodyne. And it was beautifully clean.

Hotel Hellsten is very different from most hotels. It aims at individuality backed up by a friendly staff and excellent service. Our party had the 3 top floor rooms which we found comfortable with interesting decor. Breakfast is definitely an attraction with a wide variety of food including excellent croissants and a do-it-yourself waffle maker. Constant free coffee in the lounge was very welcome after a day out in Stockholm. The bar prices were very reasonable and there is an air of calm and quietness about the hotel We found walking in Stockholm very easy but there is a taxi rank outside and a metro station close by.

We would certainly stay here on any return to Stockholm

Room Tip: If you want a room you wont get in most hotels choose the top floor. There is a lift

We stayed two nights at the Hellsten, lovely modern reception, quite a quirky hotel. The staff were lovely, the decor was modern, the bathroom in the room was fantastic and the breakfast was also great. The room had a very high ceiling and wasn't very cosy, yet at the same time was quite small.

The free 24 hour coffee lounge was a great touch, and the coffee machine makes amazing coffee.

The double bed was two singles together, but I think this is standard in Sweden, parking was limited and expensive however compared to Stockholm in general it is probably not a bad price. I'd advise you to book parking as early as possible as we were only able to get a space one of the two nights we were there.

Overall highly recomended.

Hotel Hellsten has nice decor and is very clean on the inside. Our junior suite was one room, but it was a great size---we asked for two cots, which the staff was glad to provide, and there was still plenty of room. Bathroom was a bit small, but not extraordinarily so.
But what really set Hellsten apart was the service. Breakfast was delicious, and staff continually made sure to restock anything that started running out. There's a self-serve coffee machine in the lobby (which is great for those who love coffee at all hours of the day and night) and staff provides free sparkling water bottle whenever you ask for it. In general the staff was extremely friendly and responsive whenever we asked for some help.
Metro and bus stations are very close, and it's easy to get anywhere else in the city. Would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: The junior suite is a great size for a family--they even let you add in cots.
