Just returned from the Hotel Karlaplan and would never stay there again. The area is quite a long walk away from the city centre and there are practically no restaurants close by. I had booked half board, expecting an evening buffet - only to be told upon arrival that they had cancelled offering any dinner. The hotel does not have a restaurant and it was difficult to find any food except from a supermarket nearby (many restaurants in Stockholm are closed on Sunday evenings). Worst of all was the room - I have never evver slept in such a small room before: it had space for a single bed only; one could not even stand besides the bed. Next to the bed was the tiny showerroom. When opening the door one was standing right next to a steep staircase and easily fall if one did not take special care. TheTV had Swedish programmes only, except for the BBC World News channel. On Sunday the cleaning staff took away the dirty towels but did not replace them with clean ones. The woman at the reception was very unfriendly - she may have been used to complaining guests already, and did not even apologize for not offering the promised dinner buffet. When I asked for another room she merely said that none was available. If I had not prepaid the room for three nights, I would have left then and there.
Altogether, booking this hotel was a big mistake and made me enjoy my stay in Stockholm less than I would have otherwise.
