Reviewed 8 June 2012

I chose this hotel because of its good ranking on Trip Advisor and what I felt was a decently affordable price in this very expensive city. The bar and the restaurant of the hotel are nice : the food is good (if you book via their web site you get a voucher which pays for 90% of your habmurger bill !) and there is a nice crowd. The BIG disappointments are the room and the noise. I have never seen such a small room : the wall if 20 cms from the end of the bed. I was on the 2nd floor and the noise coming from the bar / club at night woke me up and gave me a hard time to go back to sleep. The French staff member I spoke to in the morning was friendly but he could do nothing about it. I left very disappointed.

Story Hotel is a very chic boutique hotel at a good location in central Stockholm. Everything looks very good on the surface, but when you start scratching it's far from perfect.

Biggest problem? Don't expect to get any sleep before their bar closes at 2am (at least on Friday-Saturday). Even though we stayed on fourth floor the bass easily passed through walls and ear plugs making it real hard to relax.

The breakfast buffet was also a feast for the eyes, but a big disappointment for the stomach. The only "warm" food offered was boiled eggs, I expect much more from a hotel breakfast in Sweden. But the juice was delicious.

The wifi was malfunctioning a lot.

The interior in the room was very nice, but quite impractical, limited space for your clothes.

If you're in Stocholm for partying, Story Hotel is a good choice, if you want a relaxing stay you better choose another hotel.

I've stayed several times in this hotel with colleagues. what a delight.
the entry, reception and the decor are odd when you first get there, "Bohemian?".
but it really grows on you. relatively inexpensive for Stockholm's high hotel prices.
the staff are a delight. nothing is too much trouble and very helpful on restaurants, sightseeing etc.

Room Tip: it's a converted apartment building a few hundred years old so room vary a great deal. most lar...

Story Hotel is a nice boutique hotel in Stockholm. Location is perfect. Great Bar & Drinks. Just don't go with there with Kid's. Hotel has zero amenities for Kids, neither in the rooms nor at breakfast. It's probably as well not the business concept of the Hotel. The other thing we didn't like was the quality of the staff. Mainly students I assume with not the best service orientation; a mix of a bit too arrogant and to little caring for the guests. Hotel has not really a lobby or a place to hang out if you don't want to be either in the bar or the restaurant. Recommend? Yes, for couples and business people.

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!
