“Inexpensive but earplugs required!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2012

The last night of our Sweden trip was also our second stay in a Connect hotel (Connect city Stockholm being the first one). The Connect Arlanda is one of the less expensive options close to Arlanda airport (which means it is inappropriate for visiting central Stockholm as the airport is far away from the city). Although the hotel is generally ok, there are a considerable number of flaws.

The hotel is not part of the official airport shuttle service and organises an airport shuttle of its own. Although it worked fine for us in the end, the service does not run very frequently and only during limited hours in the day (mornings and evenings). Outside these hours, shuttle has to be paid for which is really unpractical for an airport hotel.

The hotel is quite recent and generally gives a clean and modern impression. The reception also works as bar and the receptionists accordingly also take orders for food and drinks: although they are professional and working well, staff will easily find themselves a bit overwhelmed at busy times, in particular when the shuttle brings a full load of new guests having to check-in.

Our "large" room was not particularly large, was minimalist but modern and clean. The bathroom was large enough, modern and clean. The soundproofing of the room was quite poor however. Moreover, the hotel is located next to a busy motorway: if you need to sleep with an open window as we do (for air or coolness in the summer), this will mean a considerable noise level in the room and require earplugs for proper sleep.

The hotel further has no free Wi-Fi and no room service, and even the drinks we purchased at the bar/reception had to be consumed in the lobby as staff did not want to let us take our drinks to our room.

Overall, the level of accommodation was acceptable but still leaves much room for improvement, in particular in terms of noise level and service.

I don't expect much from hotel airports and Connect Arlandastad didn't deliver much. They couldn't find my reservation till I proved I had it. The ambiance is "airport" - narrow hallways, steel and glass, barely comfortable rooms, mediocre food warmed up in their kitchen, not prepared, Internet for a price and a minimal European breakfast. The shuttle to the airport was the best part of this overpriced, underwhelming hotel experience.

Bad hotel for one week, Food is not nice and little choice. Too far from other restaurants. Rooms really very small if you need to stay one week. For two persons it is dramatic small.
Personnel is not interested. For one night it will be acceptable.

Location near to the Airport with Shuttle bus but out in the sticks. Public areas modern and attractive and staff welcoming. Room clean and functional and adequate for a one night stay. Charge for wi-fi, TV, ensuite shower room. Breakfast included and plentyful but not much variety. A little overpriced in my opinion

Just back from a 5 night stay, during which I commuted daily to Stockholm. A very large medical conference was on, so the hotels in Stockholm were almost all booked months ago and very expensive.
We booked this hotel since it was close to Arlanda, and a reasonable price.

Free shuttle from the airport stops at 1800, and from the hotel to the airport stops around 0930, so you have to take a taxi (150sek).

During the 5 day stay, all the reception girls were friendly and efficient, especially the blonde one whose name I forget. They are multi-tasking, doing reception/bar/serving meals etc.

The rooms are tiny, have no tea/coffee facilities and have those bathrooms that get completely wet when you have a shower. You also hear EVERYTHING from next door, and I was woken every night by people arriving/departing. In fact i didn't have one decent sleep in 5 nights.

I would use it again for an overnight stop, but certainly not a 5 day stay.

Room Tip: Ground floor is probably your best bet, since then there will be nobody beneath you and you'll o...

This hotel is modern, clean with modest rooms but functional. The staff were overworked in that they tended reception duties, took orders for food, served drinks and food and cleared plates from table. Despite this they were efficient and professionally friendly. There is an adequate cafe style restaurant just off the lobby area which served good food. Although the room would be termed expensive compared to similar hotels in the UK, it was reasonable in Stockholm terms. I would use it again for an overnight stop. It is about 10 minutes bus ride from the airport but be warned, the buses only operate at certain times, otherwise you have to pay 150SK outside these times. The hotel is remote as a location.
