Just don't come here. I have stayed in much comfier youth hostels for a fraction of the price. Nothing to recommend it - room ghastly no mod cons at all, breakfast redolent of motels, out-of-the-way location and absurd pricing. I didn't actually spot a rat or a cockroach, surprisingly, which was pleasing. The redeeming feature was the friendliness of the...

I stayed here in a single room as it was half the price of the Rival when my friends (couples) were staying but frankly I should have stayed at the Rival which was many times better. Location - dull Bedroom - I have stayed in better hostels. Horrible tiny room which was below ground. Tiny window which I could not...

We were assigned a small twin-bedded room on the top floor, which fortunately had a window that opened for fresh air; there was no A/C and it was warm when we were there. Without the window....it would have been quite unpleasant in the room. The breakfast buffet was good and it was set up early enough so on our last...

Beware not all rooms are the same standard as some have been upgraded to a good standard. We were part of a bus tour and lucky to get put in a suite which was very roomy and had lots of little extras e.g. coffee making facilities, bathrobes and toiletries etc. the bathroom had an open shower with no walls.The view...

This hotel isn't exactly central, but it's a nice, quiet location and a good, healthy walk to many restaurants as well as near a T-bana station on the same line as T-Centralen. The staff was incredibly helpful when I asked about restaurants and when I needed detailed information about public transport to a particular place I needed to visit. The...

I did however book a cheap room - so thats what you get - but services promised were defunct. I worked alot in the lobby/breakfast area. Staff was mostly helpful and there was complimentary beverages. Internet would nod off now and then. Location was fine. Building nice. Nearby lunch restaurant very good. Wouldnt go back.

I was in Stockholm for a few days on a work visit. I got quite a small room but it was always clean and tidy. The breakfast was very good. You can always go down and make a hot drink. Not very close to city center but the underground station is one minute walking. Also nearby is a local shopping...

This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The room was tiny with not even enough room to walk around the two single beds (pushed together to make a double) As we had two suitcases and no cupboard was provided to hang clothes it was a constant juggling act. Our room had peeling paint and water leak marks...

More like a youth hostel than a 4-star hotel, with few amenities. The rooms had no drawers so smaller items which could not be hung had to remain in the suitcase. The pillows were so musty it was horrid trying to sleep on them. We were also cold at night. Breakfast was acceptable but a little service would have been...

Staying in Ostermalm

Neighbourhood Profile
With its high-end shopping facilities and Michelin-starred restaurants, Östermalm is definitely the poshest part of central Stockholm. Here you will find Stockholm’s most majestic residential buildings, a beautiful market hall from 1888 displaying gourmet foods from around the world and the Swedish Royal Dramatic Theatre with its awe-inspiring architecture. At night, legendary nightclubs make the perfect location to observe the natives (and those aspiring to become natives of this exclusive neighborhood) in their natural habitat and to enjoy the latest produce of the Swedish house music scene.
