“Truly excellent hotel, one of the best I have stayed in”
Reviewed 10 January 2014 via mobile

I travel on business and pleasure around the world and this was one of the nicest hotel experiences I have had. The hotel is centrally located with lovely views but what made the most impression was the service. A DVD player was delivered for free and instantly to our room, the minibar is free for snacks and on alcoholic beverages and we found the staff always very helpful. Cannot recommend this hotel enough.

We arrived dirty and sad looking from Kiruna. The staff at check in we're kind and professional and provided an upgrade when we asked.

The hotel was well designed and a joy to stay in. The breakfast and the bar, we're particularly memorable.

Would stay again!

I used Trip Advisor to steer my choice of hotel during a recent trip trip to Scandinavia. Hotel Lydmar turned out to be a great choice. Upon arrival, there was a large energetic crowd on the front patio enjoying happy hour. That put a big smile on my face. The hotel has security on site and the on duty personnel assisted me with my bags to the front desk. The front desk staff provided me with available room options and provided an unsolicited room upgrade. The room was extremely comfortable - the living and bath spaces were equally spacious and the bed was quite comfortable. The staff spoke english almost flawlessly. The on site restaurant was excellent and like the rest of the hotel, they were extremely accommodating. The hotel displayed an provacative array of interesting photographic art. Stockholm is a beautiful city and the hotel's location is very central and allows one to walk almost everywhere.
I would revisit this hotel and recommend it without hesitation - it remains one of my favorites among those recently visited.

I chose this hotel based on reviews I'd read here, and as usual, I was not disappointed. This hotel is adorable. They make an effort to make it feel homey and it most certainly does. I cannot say enough good things about the staff (very friendly, very helpful, very relaxed), the rooms (unbelievably comfortable and cozy), and the location (smack-dab in the middle of all the places we wanted to see).
The breakfast buffet was very good, as were the a la carte items. Some mornings we had the place to ourselves; some mornings it was absolutely packed. Room service was perfect---they even brought up the wine and appetizer before the meal, without our having to ask. They just said they thought we'd like it that way.
This is a luxury hotel, but if you can afford it, do so. It was such a great place to come back to after a full day of sightseeing and walking. It really did feel like home...but with better service.

We've just returned from a lovely 3 night stay over New Year at the Lydmar.

We arrived late at the hotel and had a fantastic greeting from the night manager and his dog "Doris", lovely large room (#313), with large bath, rainshower, l'occitane products. Very comfy bed and good size seating area. Only thing missing is a kettle/coffee maker - this would make it perfect.

The restaurant/bar has a great vibe - good music played at the correct sound - not to loud.

Had a lovely meal in there as well as the daily breakfast.

The staff are very good - it's casual but professional - the only comment would be that although the image is one of casualness - own jeans and shirt etc, I think that they should wear something to differentiate them from the customers, even if it's as simple as a plain black apron.

The hotel is in a perfect position - overlooking the water and only 5 mins walk from the old town and also the main shopping areas.

Reception staff were excellent with recommendations and advice.

All in all a very good hotel and with a couple of tweaks could be perfect.

Room Tip: Room 313, lovely large quiet room, with a fantastic bathroom.

The rooms not clean.dust all over for example lamps.completely worthless internet and tv. Very much noise and posh but little value.avoid!thae general approach very much is not at odds with quality and service friendly but very slow and not flexible. The resto nice but same thing service more into their own place and habits than those of their guests.

Dear Guest
Lydmar always thrive for excellence and quality and has managed both very good at least as far we noticed through Tripadvisor so this caught me slightly by surprise. First and foremost I would like to apologies for all deficiencies that seamed to appeared during your latest stay with us. This is in no way how a hotel of our caliber should be exemplified and I would be delighted if you could contact me for more information so we can work even harder to be best and your natural selection of hotel next time you are in Stockholm.
Kind Regards

Sebastian Anlert

Superb hotel, great staff and great location in a great city. We spent three nights in this hotel and found everything to be exactly to our liking. When we arrived late on Friday there was a buzz as soon as we entered and the bar was always lively and the staff ever attentive. The hotel has amazing photographs throughout and many different seating areas for relaxing and chilling out. The location was ideal and we were able to explore from the hotel each day. The concierge were brilliant and provided help with restaurants, going out, taxis etc. They know the places to go and all were great. This is a fantastic city and I hope that we will be going back soon (once the bank account has recovered!).
