This hotel is located on a quiet street a 15min walk from the center of the city. Our room was small tidy and clean, and the breakfast was average, no parking is available so be prepared to drive around the block to find one.

The hotel is situated close to the Metro which makes it easy to get around. The staff were friendly and helpful. It is always good when a hotel can store you luggage after check out. The room was "ok" maybe a bit basic but the bed was comfy. We had to change rooms in the morning due to our shower...

The location is very close to Karlaplan metro station which makes it easy to get around and adjacent to a small shopping mall of about 30 shops. The hotel looks quite grand with steps up the front, no idea what you do if you cannot manage steps? The reception staff were typically friendly Swedish and very helpful. Ok, the first...

Dear Paul, Thank you for a well-written review! I am happy that you enjoyed the breakfast and that the staff were friendly. However I apologize for the lack of storage in some of the rooms. We will look into this and try to find a solution for clothes that doesn't take that much of space. Even though you wrote that...

This is a nice hotel for tourists if you don't plan to spend a lot of time in the room. It's very reasonably priced and it's in a nice area of Stockholm. By "nice," I mean, a really good, upscale neighborhood. It's right up the street from Karlavagen which I'd compare to Park Avenue in New York City. It's not...

Stockholm at Christmas is a joy to behold! Soft white lighted candles and stars in every window, classy evergreen decorations and snow underfoot glittering like a million diamonds. Tall, monumental, historic brick buildings lining the wide streets of Oestermalm of which The Best Western Karlaplan is a wonderful example. Up the red carpet covered steps into the brilliantly lit lobby...

I stayed at this hotel for business trip. Position: very good! 3 minutes from the metro station! Rooms: Just the space to move around the bed... Breakfast: good! Reception: very available and helpful. WiFi Connection: free and good quality!! Cleaning: Perfect in the toilette, a bit less in the room!

I have never encountered such dirty room. Hair all over the bathroom and impossible to miss for the housekeeping staff.

Dear Rickard, Thank you for your review! Once again I am very sorry that your room was lacking cleaning. That is of course not acceptable for us and that is why we offered you an upgraded room with 50 % discount. I am glad that you are willing to give us another chance and hope you will enjoy your new...

I still cannot belive that I have paid the equivalent of more than 200 Euros for this small depressing, ugly bedroom with very basic facilities. This hotel clearly does not deserve its 4 stars. This so called "superior" room not only had the worst taste furniture, but also not even any drawer or board for cloth, Bathrooms amenities were 2...

Thank you for sharing your experience and thoughts about your stay. I am very sorry that you feel your stay was overpriced. As we work with dynamic pricing (like most hotels do) the prices can vary a lot depending on day of the week and demand in Stockholm. You was unfortunate to stay on a day when the demand was...

I like these hotels which has a odd floor-plan and where can assume all rooms are different. The winding corridor to the room even has odd steps up and down... I got a small room in the basement with really high ceiling and windows high up on the wall facing inwards. A big plus was the window opened, so I...
