Clarion Hotel Stockholm: "Huge room, great breakfast, very friendly staff" Sweden Hotel Tip by DrPwk

Sweden Hotels: 124 reviews and 131 photos

We stayed in a deluxe double for 2 nights.

Would definitely recommend.

Good points:

* HUGE room and lovely bathroom with shower and a bath
* Great modern decor
* Huge bed with 2 duvets - no fighting over the duvet :)
* Great breakfast selection
* Absolutely lovely staff who were very friendly and helpful with any questions
* Right by Skanstull T-Bana metro, only a 5 minute ride from the Central rail station/Gamla Stan etc.
* Sodermalm is a lovely area with loads of reasonably priced restaurants (for stockholm!) - especially good for veggies with Chutney and Hermanns nearby!

Negative Points:
* A little bit out of the action if you like everything on your doorstep
* Breakfast is completely self service so you have to get all drinks etc yourself which can be a bit of a pain as there are no trays and you are up and down like a yo-yo to get coffees, tea, juice etc as well as food (this does seem to be common practise in Stockholm though)
* No plunge pool or hot tub as shown on their website, nor has their literature in the rooms been updated. There is now only a sauna and where the pictures show the pool to be this now just has 2 running machines placed there. This was not explained to us by anyone and a number of people wondered up looking very confused. We were pretty disappointed about this as the view is amazing up there and our tired aching feet wanted to use the hot tub!

Overall we had a great time here so we would definitely recommend it. The staff are fantastic and made all the difference to our stay.
