Downers Grove, Illinois
Reviewed 5 August 2015 via mobile

Very busy and clean hotel in heart of Stockholm. Location is great and be sure to not miss the extensive European breakfast. Also you must ask about your room before you check in as big variety of room features and quality. I unfortunately ended up with a very cramped room in basement with no windows. Couldn't wait to check out.

An OK hotel in a good location with comfy beds. However, there is little room storage space with no shelves and a tiny wardrobe. Clothes have to be hung on a rail near the bed. Breakfast is a bit of a bun-fight due to the crazy layout of the food and drink. Why is the toaster miles away from the...

We stayed at this hotel prior to taking a cruise ship. It was very European meaning the bathroom was small and the bed was like a cot. The shower was in a corner of a tiled floor. The bed did not have a spring mattress but a small pad on a cot like platform. It was comfortable enough but not...

This Scandic hotel was better than some in the chain, with a good sized room, plenty of storage space, very quiet, and with the most modern, sparkling bathroom very well designed to maximise space. The hotel is well located within easy walking distance of the old-town and has all the amenities one needs. Great public bar, popular with the locals...

I prepayed and booked my room months before going to this hotel, because I was going on a concert of a world famous rockband. You'd think that they'd be more careful with overbooking when an event like that is happening, but no. I got to stay at hotel Rival for the first night, and frankly it was better. Not as...

Hi JohannaFlink7, We are very sorry that the hotel was overbooked during your stay in Stockholm. Unfortunately this happens, however rarely. This is due to the fact that our hotel can be booked through many different booking channels at the same time, for example third party booking sites online, through our own website, through e-mail or phone etc. And when...

I have stayed at this hotel before and the location is GREAT. Close to buses, subway, and Arlanda express. As a rule the service is OK; however, this time I came across a very snooty 'woman' at check out time who claimed that my California driver's license was not valid in Sweden. Well, she should tell Hertz that and even...
