We didn't get off to a good start. First our room key didn't function and that's not good when you are tired after travelling. Then the safe didn't work, nor the light by the door. The receptionist put new batteries in the safe, which still didn't work, and said she would get the light seen to. A day later nothing...

The lounge and reception area is very nice and the service at the reception is forthcoming and very high quality. The breakfast is fine normal type of Swedish breakfast with a fine selection. I had booked a room for one night and I am happy that I did not have to stay longer. The room generally need to get a...

This was my second visit at Kung Karl; the first dated back in 1987! A lot of things had changed and the hotel was very cosy and stylishly renovated. The breakfast was one of the best with excellent selection of bread and cheese. I will definitely come again!

I stayed here over the first May bank holiday weekend with my husband and parents & think it's easier to break it down into pros and cons... Pros: Location - located on Stureplan, it's so easy to see the beautiful city of Stockholm from here and you're in spitting distance of plenty of shops, restaurants, etc. Staff - the reception...

I'm still unsure how I feel about this hotel, even though I've left it a week before reviewing it! The reception staff were nice, friendly and quite helpful. However they seem to have to fulfill other roles as well. On two of the four nights we stayed they also had to man the bar if anyone wanted a drink and...

The cost hotel in the very hart of Stockholm. The room is rather small but everything you need is there. The breakfast choice is really surprising with selection of cheeses and tea leaves which I indeed needed.

I stayed at the Kung Carl for three nights in April 2017. First impressions were very poor. After a delayed flight, I arrived at the hotel at around midnight, to find the front desk completely unstaffed. I waited a ridiculous ten minutes of bell ringing and 'helloooo-ing', before I went into the kitchen area at the back to ask for...

I stayed here for 4 days, I had originally booked 3, but it was so good I stayed another. That was a mistake. The fourth night was Friday, apparently a party night. At 12:30 AM I was awakened by blaring horns. These horns continued until 05:00 at which point my neighbors came back and started banging their doors. The noise...

You couldn't ask for a better location than being right on Stureplan, and we never heard the street noise in our room. You're just across the street from great seafood at Sturehof, the Sturebadet spa, or some late night fun at Spy Bar. Our room was comically small by US standards, but in line with other European capitals, and we...

One of the best beds I have ever slept i this nice old time hotel. Good night sleep is the best thing you can get after walking around the city. Small dogs were waiting on the bed every day. The hotel is near the old city. You can just walk there. And this side of town seems to be clean...
