We were guests at Hotel Rival for a total of ten nights. Their service, the comfort of the hotel and its location was beyond reproach. These are our observations: * The design of the hotel is fairly fashion forward. The rooms have a vibrant colour palette, the furnishings

Even though we live in Stockholm, we decided to book a little getaway to celebrate our anniversary. Room wasn't quite ready when we arrived but since we weren't in a hurry, we decided to grab a chair at the bar and get something to eat and drink. Great variety of cocktails as

Just back from a 3 day break and booked in. Standard room which had all the amenities. No fuss and clean and warm. We were at the back of the hotel so no great views. The front overlooks a park so ask for one of those. The staff are amazing as are all the Swedes. Never felt more

Hello 477bradp! The room safe is 14" wide, 14" deep and 8½" high. It wouldn't fit in the safe lying flat, but will fit at an angle, as long as the depth works.

Hi Closest airport is Bromma but it is mostly for domestic flights, Arlanda Airport is the closest International Airport. You can find all ways to get to and from Hotel Rival on our website. Under "About us" and "Find the Rival Hotel". Sorry I cant send url links in this forum. Please dont hesitate should there be anything else. /Jesper Sandberg

What’s in the fitness center?
The hotel itself doesn't have a fitness center, but we cooperate with a gym next door called Saga Motion. Our guests get to use the facilities for 125 SEK per day through a ticket they pick up at the hotel reception. This is a fully equipped gym with everything from free weights to weight machines to excercise machines. There is no pool there, though they do have a sauna. They also have classes like yoga, body pump, core, zumba and more...
