“Spacious rooms just outside the centre”
Reviewed 18 June 2013

Accommodation in Stockholm can be expensive, so we chose to stay just outside the city centre to get more for our money and picked the Sky Hotel Apartments on the basis of previous positive reviews. If, like us, you are happy to utilise public transport then Sky Hotel Apartments are an excellent choice and you will get much more space and value for money than a hotel in the centre.

The Rooms - trust the pictures on their website because they are a very accurate reflection of what the rooms are like, clean Swedish styling, nice wide corridors, comfortable seating area and a small kitchen which is perfect for making lunch or a snack. The bathroom is also roomy with a good shower (but no bath). As these are apartments you do not get a daily cleaning service like you would in a hotel and to a degree are expected to tidy up after yourself, not a problem for us though on a short 4 day break. All rooms are non smoking but there is a very nice smoking terrace on floor 3.

Breakfast - we booked directly with the hotel because we got a better deal than going through a travel site and it meant breakfast was included. Breakfast is a very continental spread of cheeses, meats, various delicious breads, cereal, fruit, juices, etc. However don't expect any bacon butties or full English! Breakfast opens early and closes early, at 9:30 on a weekday, which nearly caught us out on the last day!

Location - Situated in the district of Kungsholmen, a 10 minute metro ride or a comfortable 20 minute stroll into the city centre and old town. There are two metro stations (Tunnelbana) nearby, Thorildsplan on the Green Line and Stadhagen on the blue line. The Green Line will take you into Gamla Stan and then onto the island of Sodermalm. Both stations are no more then a couple of minutes walk away and the hotel website has clear instructions on how to find them.

The Tunnelbana and buses are frequent, efficient and clean, so no reason to use taxi's. We got ourselves a SL travel pass, which gives unlimited travel for 24 hours, 36 hours, 72 hours or 7 days and represents good value if you use it frequently.

Airport transfer - Don't waste your money on a taxi from the airport, use public transport as its so easy.
You can get the Arlanda Express train from the airport, but we thought it was very expensive for what it was (a massive 260 SEK for just one way) and you would still need to navigate an onward journey from Central Station.
We used our SL unlimited travel card (only 230 SEK for 3 whole days) to get from the Airport. You can purchase SL cards from the tourist information stand in the arrivals hall, also get yourself a map of the SL network whilst you are there as this proved handy during our stay.

This is the route the Tourist Info guy suggested and its was easy peasy to follow:
* Take the local bus 583 from outside the airport to Marsta (they go every 10 minutes and take about 20 minutes to get there).
* Marsta is a very small station and at the end of the commuter line from Stockholm Centre, so you can't go too far wrong! Get a local train into Central Station (T-Centralen), they go frequently and take about 40 minutes.
* From Central Station you can easily transfer onto the Tunnelbana to reach the hotel. I would recommend you head for the Green Line, the line is not as deep as the Blue line so less escalators to navigate with baggage, and its slightly easier to find the hotel once you emerge from the station (from the Blue line you need to walk through a residential plaza which might be confusing until you find your bearings!)

Shop - There is a large supermarket plaza about 10 minutes walk from the hotel, where you can stock up on essentials. From the Hotel, turn right at the main road and just keep walking. The supermarket is on several floors and they stock beer, but not wine or spirits.

Sightseeing - Stockholm is a city made for walking. Do your homework, get yourself a good guidebook, source some self guided walks around the city and head off on an exploration!
We did an excellent walk around the suburbs of Sodermalm, away from the tourist trappings of Gamla Stan we got to experience how Stokholm residents live and happened across some really interesting sights.
Djurgarden is also good for walking, simply follow the path around the edge of the island and you can't get lost, it is bigger than you think though so make sure you have comfortable shoes!

The hotel is good and new. Location is near the subway stations Thorildsplan and Stradshagen. A big supermarket MAX is like 5 mins walk from the hotel. I stayed at a Studio Small. It equipped with simple cooking facility, a shower, a big window, TV, working table etc. Size of the room was okay for me. I found it was very comfortable. The staff was helpful. Help-yourself laundry was located on the ground floor for free. Everything was nice. Just be careful of thief in Stockholm. They were everywhere.

Great breakfast and a very good location to the train stations. Stores and restaurants next to hotel. A quick 10 minute ride or less to Central Station. Clean, spacious, modern, low price and the location make this the perfect hotel in Stockholm if you are looking for a realistic price and plenty of space in your room. I had the smallest room in the hotel and it was huge. Highly recommend this hotel.

Much larger than the usual European hotel rooms and bathrooms. Clean and modern with good range of kitchen appliances. Easy access to free washer and dryer was a bonus for us.
Breakfast a bit boring - 2 cereals, bread rolls and cheese and meat and eggs, 2 types fruit, yoghurts, nice coffee.
The walk from the hotel to the City Hall and onwards into the old town is GORGEOUS, right along the waterfront, really enjoyed it.
Very close supermarket and a few restaurants within a few blocks.
Ask for a room at the back so no road noise, our room was very quiet.
Stayed in a room for 3 - 3rd person is on a double fold out sofa which is ok for a child but wouldn't be good for 2 adults.

I've sleep in Sky Hotels Apartmnents when I was in Stockholm for work and the experience was good. Room are clean and big enough 'cause you are in little apartments (even if I'd never cook in this seen that I don't like to sleep in cooking odours). Bathroom was only with shower (at least in the room where I sleep) and breackfast was good and with a big choice (not big as in other hotels but big enough).

I think I'll be back here also consider it's in a strategic position to reach the pleace where I work when I'm in Stockholm.

Stayed for two weeks at the Sky Hotel Apartments, with family. We picked a family room with kitchen and found the room spacious. Unlike extremely small toilet bath which is very common in this part of the world, the bath was very spacious too. The hotel offered free wifi / wired connection to all guests.

Approx 400 metres from Thorildsplan T-bana (metro station), the hotel was reasonably accessible.

We were a bit surprised to find that cleaning services were offered only once in 7 days, in case of long stays! So, be prepared to do regular day to day cleaning when you are staying.

The hotel had its nice restaurant open for breakfast. Decent breakfast offered, but without much options for small kids. This is one area where the hotel can improve well. There was not even an attempt made to make the slightest possible change to the menu from one day to another. Looking at it positively, once you have a breakfast here, you are 100% sure of what you will find at breakfast next time. But having stayed for two weeks, we were quite borred to find exactly the same menu every single day. And the baked segment offered just three kinds of breads; not even a croissant or sweet bread. Service at the restaurant way okay, but if there was some one overseeing the service with more focus, guest would get a better experience there.

Altogether a good experience. Will recommend this hotel for long stays and short stays.

We enjoyed our stay of four nights at these well equipped hotel style apartments. The staff were friendly and helpful, providing a map and directions to transport and shops. The apartment was a good size, very clean and included a table and chairs for eating meals, and comfortable chairs for reading and watching tv. Apartment was centrally heated and ironing board and iron was provided. The bed was very comfortable although a little small and the bathroom spacious with a good shower. Breakfast was included in the rate, and there was a good choice of cheeses, different breads, meats, eggs, condiments, everything needed to start the day. Public transport (buses and trains) are close by, and a fantastic supermarket, pharmacy, and other shops a 10 minute walk away. It is a short train ride to the city and other sites and the area the apartments are situated in is quiet and safe. There is also a laundry in the basement available to guests at no charge. My only criticism would be that there is limited space in the kitchen for any food preparation. We would stay again.
