“Run down hotel gives scenic Saltsjöbaden and Grand Hotel a bad name”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013 via mobile

We purchased a groupon deal for a one night stay inclusive of a 2 hour spa visit, a 3 course dinner and breakfast. The hotel is old and musty, room was chilly, light bulbs in room were broken and shower tubing was broken. While the manager and staff were friendly and accomodating. It did not make up for an overall poor experience. This place is in need of a makeover.

A nice old hotel in need of a major renovation of both the exterior façade, joinery and interior facelift.
Incredibly hot room (23.5C) without the ability to reduce the heat and double bed that went apart. Sadly bathroom with bath and shower hose.
Totally boring diningroom which serves dinner without tablecloths on the table . It s felt like being in a dining room on an old cruiseship. Small food portions with half boiled potatoes and a piece of asparagus in the company of a small piece of chicken.
On the positive side:sea views and a great location if you want peace and quiet.

Third visit to Stockholm and Grand Hotel Saltsjobaden.
Was upgraded to sea view room, large room, comfortable beds and spacious, clean bathroom.
Great breakfast served in room called (I think) captains lounge overlooking marina, very stunning views with sea frozen over and layer of snow.
Wonderful pool & spa which was free as problems with steam room, used both nights and only people in.
Could do with some updating - a grand dutchess from a bygone age.
Train station i front of hotel for 25min journey into Slussen.

Room Tip: sea view room

This hotel is located in a beautiful setting close to Stockholm. Next to the hotel is a train stop that takes you directly to Stockholm. I loved the building, the library, basically it's a charming place. I was here some time ago attending a wedding of my good friend. I would love to come back again and enjoy the tranquility of this place for longer.

If you want to spend some time in Sweden away from the hustle and bustle of the city, this is your hotel. The rooms are clean and beautiful and the water views and architecture of the surrounding area will keep you walking for hours.

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking a courtyard. Not much of a view, but we weren't there to sit inside a...

We spent a couple of nights off-season, reasonable rates. This grand old dame still commands respect, though her gilt is faded, brasswork unpolished, and the baize on the billiard table needs repair. She is now a functional conference hotel. Everything works, but is no longer grand, though the pool and spa are new and good. Stay there for the setting, overlooking a prime sailing venue. Helpful staff - but not many of them.
