Stockholm hotels are extremely overpriced and undervalued. We didn't feel like paying 300+ EUR a night so we chose Motel L knowing that the location isn't ideal. To reach the city centre, you need to take a tram and switch to a metro. We walked to the metro station once, but the area was very industrial, the walk wasn't very scenic, and we decided not to do it again.

Other than the location, the hotel isn't too bad. It's basic but very clean. The rooms are small but sufficient. The shower is tiny, but water pressure is good. The bed was ok. We slept reasonably well since there was little noise in the neighbourhood. There is a small supermarket next door, which is handy for breakfast. Check in/out was fast and efficient.

The hotel is easily reached by train/tram. It's a relatively short ride to the historic center of Stockholm and there are ferries nearby to reach other areas/islands in Stockholm. The actual location of the hotel is in an area that is really quite empty. There are a few restaurants nearby, but after about 10, fast food or a trip to the city will be in order if you're hungry.

The room is extremely small. We were told they're all the same. We had booked a double twin room, but what we received was two beds that were pushed together. Very cramped quarters.

Now, my primary issue is I learned that this hotel does not have any A/C or any individual room temperature controls. There is a thermostat, but it does nothing. I was told that their is a fan feature; however, ours did not work and apparently for the three days we were there, no one was available to check on it. Slept horribly. The rooms are stiflingly warm. No air circulation = awful.

The reality is, I wouldn't stay here again or even consider it. While relatively inexpensive for the room, I'd rather not have to take two separate trains in order to reach the city center and I'd rather have access to dining options that are less limited and within close proximity. Additionally, not having any control over the temperature of my room is a huge issue for me personally. Service was so-so and there was nothing stand out or spectacular.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay!

I am sorry that we did not meet your standards and if your thermostat was not fixed for 3 Days, we have handeld this very bad. E-mail me and we try to sort somehing out if you can consider visiting us again. annijka.oman@motel-l.se

However, sometimes a hotel guest prefer a full service hotel rather than a slim price, and we have a brilliant alternative to offer:

We also manage four star Radisson Park Inn Hammarby , only a few minutes away with the tram, as well as Hotel Riddargatan and Central in the City Centre of Stockholm.

Spacious family room with some shelving and hanging space to put the most needed clothing and extras for a reasonably lengthy stay (in our case 5 days). Comfortable beds and the room was neither too hot nor too cold. Well designed bathroom which made good use of the small space. The shower worked very well too and was a hit for the 10-year old boy in our family. Quiet location which was relatively easy to find by car. Tram-stop right outside the hotel made it easy to use the public transport in and around Stockholm. Reasonable choice of food and drink for breakfast though the only hot thing to eat was boiled egg. We didn't investigate if there were any other options of hot food to eat since we were happy with the choice otherwise. Booking the hotel was very easy though there could have been more practical information on the web-site like whether or not breakfast was included - I had to find out about this from other hotel-booking agents (breakfast was included since I booked through the hotel's own web-site).

Dear Rachel B, many thanks for taking the time to leave a review and for the lovely comments. Also thank you for the comment about the breakfast, we are currently having a campaign with free breakfast on our website and the information might have been hard to receive. Welcome back to Motel L!
