“Scandi hip....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2012

top notch hotel, bar + restaurant - so many great touch points for the consumer of all of its services. tasty drinks served by attentive barmen and a particularly charming open terrace with graffiti artwork and battered old garden furniture. super hip. good value + an ideal (centrally-located) place from which to explore the charms of Stockholm. I have been here severral times and was always pleased.

Best in town to have fun in a very cool restaurant & bar, as well as to meet people from many places in Europe.

Clean, nice size rooms. I had the Friggebod.
Only issue is that it gets a little warm in the night (during summer), and the aircon is almost non-existing. Also, you cannot keep the window open if you have a room out towards the street.

The breakfast buffet is a little small.

Try "Middle East" in the Story Bar. Excellent!

We had a room with bathtub, which was lovely. But be aware that you if you are sharing a room, you will have almost no privacy. The sleeping area and the bathroom are only separated by a glass wall and door. That can work both ways..
The rooms are small, clean and just what you need. Breakfast is simple, but good. Helpful staff. The bar/restaurant is a popular hangout for locals, and the atmosphere is chic and lively. Good drinks, but some of them may be a bit too inventive. Only a few minutes away from a good shopping district if you are into Scandinavian brands like Acne, Whyred, Filippa K, Malene Birger etc. Would stay there again.

This is the kind of place you need when you want to be perfectly comfortable but not pay a fortune for it. Many times when traveling to bigger cities, be it in business, visiting friends and family or touristing you many times spend more time outside your room than in it, but the time you do spend in your room needs to pleasant. Principal is simple; the more you pay the more you get - so it's basically up to you! Location is perfect in the center of beautiful Stockholm. Attention is given to detail - in the restaurant, in the bar, at breakfast and in the rooms. I would say that this is the story about Story Hotel.

It's always good to stay in an interesting hotel when on work.
This hotel works brilliantly for that. It's got all the conveniences to make it a good short trip business hotel and all the necessary distractions to take your mind off work when you need it the most! The rooms are wonderfully designed and the staff extremely courteous.
It is also located very conveniently and really helps that it is small place.
The things that stand out most at Story are it's lift! - I loved the dialogues that played out at each floor and surprisingly didn't get bored of it even after 7 days.
The restaurant and the bar - very lively, and great food!
The design of the place is very quirky and interesting - loved coming back after a long day.
Overall - great place to be at.

Travelled to Stockholm for a team away weekend to this hotel with 7 others of varying ages. People either loved it or hated it. The younger members of the group 'got' the trendiness/artsy vibe of the hotel but the older members of the team found alot of the decor and service lazy and unpolished.

Pro's

- We all agreed the continental breakfast was the best that we have ever had.
- The hotel bar was vibey and fun.
- Overall the decor was really well thought out and a good combination of weird but cool
- The location was ideal.

Con's

- The hotel restaurant was overpriced and extremely average.
- The rooms and bathrooms were very small, considering the price.
- The absense of an official reception desk made things difficult when you required assistance.

That said, you can't help but like this hotel, purely for it's 'out there' vibe and interesting decor. I would stay again and would definitely recommend to people who appreciate all things artsy and trendy.
