“Great location”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

The hotel is located in a fantasic area. Walking distance to Vasamuseet, Skansen, Gröna Lund, and many other museums. No restaurant onsite but plenty of options a few minutes away. Our room was basic but in good condition. Overall I would recommend this hotel for anyone who is planning to do sightseeing around Djurgården and is looking for a good value.

During the week when I needed to be in Stockholm, there were three major hi-tech conferences, and the whole city was booked up, so I considered myself lucky to find a room here. Needless to say, all hotel room prices were inflated. I had some reservations about the location of this hotel, but then, before I had seen it, my Swedish colleagues told me that Karlaplan is actually an upscale residential area.

It was a pretty and rather quiet neighborhood, and more central than I had expected. It is within 5 minutes waling distance of a metro stop. One can also walk from here to Djurgården, the island where the Vasa Museum, Nordic Museum, and Skansen are located.

The hotel had a very varied breakfast offering, it was lovely, though the room where it was served would get too busy at times. The rooms were actually large, but somewhat plain. It was a very clean establishment. Front desk staff were very helpful, and readily arranged for the right taxi to come, as in Stockholm there are a few varieties of taxis, and some charge much higher rates than others. In the end, I was very pleased with this hotel selection.

Stayed at the Karlaplan Best Western on Business for 4 nights (Mon-Thurs).
Positives were: Friendly knowledgeable staff and good location .
Negatives were: No aircon and the breakfast was not very good. (Aircon was required on one night as it was very warm with the windows closed. Unfortunately, opening the windows did not help as it was very noisy between 11pm and 1am on my first night). Other evenings were ok with no noise.

My stay in this hotel was fine, staff was very kind and always up for any help, single room was quite good, however bed was small but very confortable, pillows were amaizing, I enjoy the stay here. Breakfast was 4/5 not the GRAND BUFFET but enough things to have a great breakfast, fruit, eggs, juice, milk, coffee, charcuterie, cheeses, cereals, etc, good assortment. the location is 2 stations from Central station so quite handy considering that Stockholm is a expensive city hotel prize was quite good for night, I would recommend to stay here and obviously get the Stockholm tourist card beause is a great option to enjoy the city.

We were fortunate to get a large by Swedish standards room for our four night visit. There was the main sleeping room, a dressing room off to one side with a writing desk,and a bathroom off of the dressing room. The complimentary buffet was large and fresh each morning with an American style breakfast of eggs, and bacon and the traditional Swedish breakfast of pickled herring, cheeses, chopped veg, hard boiled eggs, and more. There was fresh yogurt and granola and an assortment of breads and pastries. There was certainly something for everyone. There were assorted teas and coffees. I asked for a water kettle for my room one evening and one was provided for me. Staff were friendly and helpful. Everything was clean and neat. The rooms were very quiet.

Not really sure how this compares in Stockholm but this was very basic for the money. Dirty tablecloths in the breakfast area, clean room but no toiletries.

I am on business in Stockholm and was booked into the Best Western. I am currently sitting on the bed with my back to the wall and my feet touching the wall on the other side of the bed. Yes the room is so narrow that my single bed has about 40cm of space to walk around it. That is the good news... My room is actually off the stairwell and best of all I got it for the bargain price of €160. Where ever you stay in Stockholm, the Best Western should be given a wide berth. Oh, I almost forgot that I can hear the person next door snoring. This is going to be a fun nght.

Room Tip: If you must stay at this hotel avoid room 801
