For a business trip, I was booked into a standard 1 person room. The room itself is quite small and very basic. The room was located at the back, looking directly at another building.

For business purpose it was well suited, good breakfast and free wireless service. The room was quite pricey for what you get though.

I staid at Elite Hotel Plaza only for 1 night. Overall it is good hotel that is quite close to all attractions in Stockholm. More about that later.

My room was standard and it was very standard and simple as it can be at the same time it was very nice and calm. Room is small. My window was looking at another building. Bed was very comfortable. In the room I had a small working space with table, lamp and chair. A very simple thing that you can find it any hotel, but for some reason I worked longer and better at this one :)

Breakfast was very good. A lot to choose from + fresh baked bread, very nice.

Location is good but not perfect for the price. It will take you around 10-15 minutes to get to central station and 15-20 to get to the old town. If you are going there for sightseeing try to find a bit better location. I'm sure it's possible for the same price.

Room Tip: Try to get a room that has front view.

Central location in the busy area around Stureplan. I was "up-graded" from a deluxe-room to a junior suite upon check-in. The room was still quite small, but furnished very decorative and charming. Unfortunately the lighting was poor in the room, the heating did not work very well.
Cleaning is not good at all. There were a lot of dirt in the corners and other places that are not visible right away, but it was enough to run a finger over the door for it to be directly filthy
I have stayed at many hotels in Stockholm, Plaza is not a budget alternative so if you are looking for a better overall-value-for-money alternative I would reccomend other places to stay.

Room Tip: Ask to see the room before checkin in!

Centrally located near Stureplan with very small and clean rooms. The breakfast was sort of a joke, we had to wait a long time for bread, a lot of stuff was missing and you have to tell the staff to get in some more.

The Elite Stockholm Plaza is really located in the city centre. It is a perfect location for anyone who wish to be close to restaurants, night life and also some of the sights of Stockholm.

The hotel has a very nice exterior and lobby but the rest of the hotel does not really meet the same standard. The lifts are tiny and the corridors are long but I would assume that some it is because the hotel is in an old building.

The rooms are small, but that is often fairly standard in Stockholm (as well as other European cities). There was room for a double bed, a very small desk and two chairs. They also managed to fit an ironing board into the wardrobe so the space was used in an efficient manner. The room and furniture felt a bit on the old side but still functional and most importantly it felt clean. The bathroom was also small but they managed to squeeze in a bathtub.

I had a good sleep 3 out of 4 nights at this hotel. Normally I am not bothered by noise but on the night between Saturday and Sunday there was a lot of noise from the bar/restaurant at the ground level so it was a bit difficult to sleep.

The breakfast at the hotel was slightly above standard for a Swedish hotel. They could however do with some variety. I stayed for 4 nights and the breakfast was exactly the same every single day -a bit boring. Service was OK, they had some issues with the Internet access codes but it was solved. Could have been quicker from a service perspective but they were always polite and friendly.

Overall a good and solid choice for those who wish to be in the middle of the city.

Got a good weekend price for central Stockholm & the location is good . However , room was described as 'superior' & was still rather small & dull . Breakfast was rather bland , have had much better at the Elite in Gothenburg for example . Extra pluses was they offerred a late check out & wifi was free & easy to access. All in all , good price & location , but no reason to spend any time actually at the hotel , which is maybe a missed oportunity for them.

Elite Hotel Stockholm plaza is a great looking hotel from the outside. Also the public areas are modern and very clean. The room itself wasn't that great but at least it was clean. Bathroom was very outdated, the tiles being maybe from the beginning of 80's. Also the look of the room was a bit 80'ish. But hey, isn't that suppose to be back in style? You also had to keep the curtains over the windows because there was a 24/7 gym right across the street with a direct view to my room.

I only stayed at the hotel for one night and the bed was very comfy. Also the internet connection was free and worked perfectly so I could watch the evening news from back home. It was an old building and the sound proofing was not very good. Therefore you could hear even an conversation from the street (bring earplugs just in case).

Breakfast was ok, but I think I've had better in Sweden. The hotel also lacks a gym so would not be my first choice in the future. Location is excellent being on the Birger Jarlsgatan with good shopping possibilities!
