We stayed here for one night before moving into our temporary flat which was within a stone's throw. Was afraid about all the "tour bus" posts and the "crowded" negative reviews but was pleasantly surprised by the Clarion Hotel Sign. It's big for sure. We were lucky to get a room on the top floor overlooking the green park below with beautiful Stockholm buildings as a back drop. It made our first day in Sweden a spectacularly memorable one. The rooms are smallish but I liked how sleek and minimalist they were. The bathroom is slightly awkward as the door is cloudy glass and if you need privacy....well, that's not going to happen. But there are lots of bathrooms in the lobby (yes, with black toilet paper!) if you need... The morning breakfast buffet is pretty incredible with lots of offerings--herring, salmon, boiled eggs for instance as well as a whole condiments bar with flaxseed, turmeric and various spices for the 5+ kinds of yogurts available. Tons of bread choices as well as fruits, jams, sliced meats and cheeses. Really a total smorgasbord (Swedish origin of course!). The proximity to Arlanda Express cannot be beat--which is also next to the main T Centralin train station. No need for taxis. The touristy but have-to-do Ice Bar is a three minute walk as well as some great restaurants and shopping/pedestrian areas. Basically you can do touristy things and local things easily from this hotel. Since I now live close by and walk by this hotel almost every day, I can say without hesitation that this is a great centrally located hotel with good amenities and perks for a decent price. Don't worry about the tour busses. They really don't make a difference.
