“Hipsters' Pad”
Reviewed 10 March 2014

Story Hotel is really the place for the hip and happening type. Right at the watering hole in central Stockholm, the hotel is just one stop away from central station or a 15-20 minutes scenic walk away from Gambla-Stan. The lobby area is small, almost non-existent, once the electronic code is issued, you can just head straight to your room. While the standard rooms are a bit tight on space, this is Stockholm afterall. The sign of the place is all swish, smart and decorated in modern art and design. Least to say, the design and artwork are really the selling point of this place, on top of the central location and the wonderful service. I had to call the hotel with regards to the loud music, the hotel staff was apologetic (although there is nothing much they can do), but did offer to provide us with ear plugs and tea and additional pillows etc.

The breakfast was just wonderful, the spread is huge and they are a lot of healthy selection and fresh juices (not the processed juices typically found in Europe). All in all, we really enjoyed our stay here.

Room Tip: Upper floors just so that the music from the bar wont affect you.

Nice hotel with a big complimentary delicious and healthy breakfast buffet. You also get 2 free bottles of water per day and the possibility to use the empty mini fridge.
The hotel is located in an upscale shopping area within walking distance of the main sites/museums to visit in Stockholm and close to a subway station.
You can also find numerous restaurants, a market (Östermalms Saluhall) and a supermarket when you walk towards Östermalmstorg and Storgatan.

This is a very cosy, funky hotel. Nice and comfy room, This breakfast was not that big but it had very nice variety. Love the strawberryjuice. They have a nice restaurant and bar så everything is very close. You don´t have to get very far for food and drinks.

This hotel was perfect from start to finish. The staff were very nice when welcoming me into the hotel and they got me checked in and gave me my key in 5 minutes. I went straight to my room (a standard bedroom) which was very big. Perfect bathroom with a great powerful standing shower. The bed was very comfortable, a King size. The Hotel is small and Boutique but the standard of hotel and service is great. I would defiantly come back.

Also great location to walk everywhere..

I have to echo the praise of others. The Story Hotel is a lovely, artsy, modern, yet cozy hotel in a great hotel. We stayed in a standard room on the second floor and had minimal noise issues (except early one morning when the garbage truck came by and picked up the recycling bottles in the alley.) The decor is minimal and artsy. The bathroom is HUGE. Importantly, our room was very clean and we were very impressed that four bottles of bottled water was replaced daily. It was a really great touch. We walked to the nearby grocery store (go down to the T station on the corner- take the escalator down and the store is located within) and filled the mini fridge with lunch meat, cheese, breads and fruit. Between a very generous complimentary breakfast (with lots of healthy options and really delicious tea) and our makeshift lunch, we were able to keep our food expenses down quite a bit. We ate at the restaurant for dinner at the hotel one night and really enjoyed it. We weren't starving so just had a starter each. I mentioned a gluten allergy and was even brought gluten-free bread! The bar was also lovely and we enjoyed unwinding there nightly with a glass of champagne.

As for the location, it was really quite perfect, especially for the price. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted even in the cold winter temperatures. Most of all, every staff member we encountered was so kind and helpful. Nicole who helped check us in was so lovely and smiled every time she saw us. The floor manager for breakfast/lunch (I'm unsure of her name) was so helpful! She gave some off the beaten path ideas of things to do. Overall, the Story Hotel was a great value for the money. We would definitely stay here again if ever back in Stockholm.

The only thing that can be approved on is a better understanding of down feather allergies. If you're allergic to down, be aware that the pillows are down. I requested different pillows but they didn't have any. Luckily they had small children's blankets that they filled a pillowcase with. It worked fine but it's the first hotel I've ever been with that didn't have down alternative pillows/blankets to accommodate my allergy.

We knew what to expect when we booked this hotel and it lived up to its expectations. Young, fresh and slightly unconventional the rooms are comfortable, the breakfast buffet generous and the bar a fun place to hang out for a night cap.
We would definitely go back again if we return to Stockholm in the future.

We stayed at the Story Hotel over new year 2013/14. It is in a good location to walk to a lot of what Stockholm has to offer, friendly staff and a nice cocktail bar. Bedrooms are pretty individual, I could see how the decor wouldn't be to everyone's taste but I think it is much preferrable to the usual bland same old, same old of so many hotels today. The lift plays you a fanfare and has a little announcement when you reach your floor too. Friendly staff and a good breakfast, overall a good stay in what i could best describe a quirky place. Avoid if you like the traditional, otherwise you'll enjoy it.

Room Tip: The bar is noisy so avoid the first floor, unless you've been in the bar then you won't mind...
