“Lovely hotel in great location”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

I can not understand why anybody would not give this hotel an excellent rating! The Esplanade is in a great location, the room was very comfortable and the staff were so friendly and efficient. I would certainly stay again at this lovely, charming hotel in a most beautiful city.

Great location and wonderful staff. Some furnishings are a little worn but overlook that for a very pleasant stay. Breakfast was plentiful and good. They accommodated my request for gluten free with no problem. Upstairs lounge was comfortable and the balcony had nice views of the harbor. There is no elevator but staff brought our bags upstairs so it was not a problem. Very pleased with my stay here.

Room Tip: Ask for courtyard view.

Hotel Esplanada Stockholm, looks beautiful from outside but dated inside, the hotel is a small part of this beautiful building. After a long day out there is no Bar or restaurant in the hotel to relax, however there is a nice dark period lounge area, The hotel has a fantastic location with everything close by. The staff are very helpful and friendly. And breakfast was good.

Perfect location on strandvagen, one of the best streets in Stockholm within easy walk of everything. Building is beautiful from the outside. Breakfast is good, wifi free and staff very friendly.
If you're a tourist and plan on spending next to no time in your hotel room, this hotel is a good choice. However, if a nice modern hotel room is important to you: don't stay here. The rooms are very pokey, shabby and the bathrooms are prehistoric. We spent as much time out of the room as possible as it depressed us so much.

I stayed there for 5 days during the EAU meeting in Stockholm of this year. I booked it through Booking.com and I did not have problem. 15 minutes walk from tha central station where You arrived from the airport with the arlanda Express. less than 10 minutes to reach the centre. Old style room, nice and clean. Nice persons inside the staff and happy to help You. In a city where the cost of the hotel is extremely high Hotel Esplanade offers a good option. Quite good breakfast in which, just to find out a something lacking, there are no cakes and croissant.
Nice place to be.

Hotel has an excellent location on stunning Strandvägen. The surrounding neighbourhood of Östermalm is great, beautiful and close to everything.

Breakfast was nice, good quality and enough choices. I stayed in a single room with a big window facing a small courtyard, it was quiet and provided good sleep quality. Room was very small had a very worn floor and cracked paint in the roof. Bathroom was very small and of low standard. The hotel one a whole is worn. This hotel is more like a two star hotekl than a four star.

The first floor lounge is decorated in late 19th early 20th century style, gives a Agatha Christie feeling, a great place to relax and socialize with the other guests of the hotel. The rooms are smaller than the looks on internet booking sites but still comfortable.

The Coffee machine makes great brew and is accessible 24 hours.

Room Tip: Rooms towards the yard seem to be smaller and windows must be closed as the room otherwise are acces...
