“Great place to stay just outside Stockholm”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Stayed here for 2 nights and thought it was a great little find.
Not in centre but not very difficult to get to (Buss to slussen 12 min and water taxi about 30 min to centre). We had a 3 day public transport card and it worked on one out of three of the water taxi companies (a shame actually, as the others where more frequent).
Nice and clean rooms, comfortable beds. Would have been nice to be able to make your own tea/coffie in room though.
Unfortunately the wifi didn't work to well at all times in the room, but only used it really to check bus time table.
Great great breakfast! Fresh and good variety.
Friendly staff.

After 3 weeks in the heart of the city near T-Centrallen, finishing off the last 3 days in Nacka was heavenly! My husband was there on business but the last 3 days was little time to unwind and enjoy Sweden's long days and beautiful weather. J Hotel was the perfect hotel for that. I love the nautical theme of the hotel. Felt so open and airy and decor so simple and inviting. We had a room in one of the newer buildings on the 2nd floor with a wonderful view. The higher the better though. The breakfast was ample. Don't miss the pancakes with buttery cream and home made preserves or syrup. So good! Everything else is pretty much the typical buffet on a slightly grander scale. There's a cute little honor bar in the lobby with light snacks and beverages. Get a glass of bubbly and sit outside to watch cruise ships pass, sail boats float by, and the sun glisten over the sea. Every look out to horizon was a picture moment. So beautiful.

Room Tip: For a view, the higher the room the better.

Probably I'm spoilt by turkish hotels... but kitchen decor for the hotel room was not what I expected at all. And if they are for a nautical theme: where is salmon on the breakfast table? Restaturant J has good standard, high prices and no competition at all around on Sunday evening. Nacka Forum is great for shopping, lots of stores and almost no people at all:)
And I mean even Ibis hotel has free coffee and tea for the guests - here you are expected to pay for everything, very bad from the hospitality point of view.

We were made to feel so welcome in this cosy, winter wonderland over Christmas time last year. Excellent service, with staff going out of their way to ensure our comfort. This beautiful setting gave us a taste of a true Scandinavian Christmas, complete with pickled herring, snow and magical Christmas lights. A short boat or bus trip away from the city centre made it very easily accesible and convenient. We would love to experience this great hotel in summer too!

We stayed 3 nights in Hotel J. The rooms were nice and comfortable. The bathroom was the best i ever experienced! Breakfast was excellent. The only downside was the public transport from and to the city. Make sure you have the blue card, or a Stockholm-card; this makes travelling around more easy. Alsof check the timetables for bus and boat so you won't loose precious time.

I only stayed for one night on business in Nacka, but I cannot fault the hotel in any way.
The hotel is about 20 minutes from the city center by taxi. A stunning location with beautiful rooms and a fantastic view of the water.
Rooms are decorated in Swedish tradition, a lot of wood and organic cloth materials. The double bed was very comfortable and I felt well rested the following day.
There is no evening service in the hotel restaurant, however the "J Restaurant is only a 5min walk away in the small harbor, breakfast in the hotel is very good, with a wide selection of cereal, fruit, eggs, meats etc.

The location and view is fantastic. Outside the hustle and bustle of the city, yet only a 15min ferry ride to the center of town. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable with a nautical theme. The staff were polite and friendly. Restaurant J is about a 5min walk and despite being once again very expensive, the food, ambience and view was fantastic. Complementary wifi was appreciated. A computer with internet and a printer was great for printing boarding passes.

The included breakfast could have been more extensive. Reasonably basic for the hotels standard. Room prices are expensive, but then again so is the rest of sweden. A taxi ride from the airport will set you back about US$120 each way.
