Reviewed 28 August 2012

The position is excellent. The hotel is nice, but our room was too small (note that we chose one of the most expensive available among those standard, as it had the window!), with particular reference to the bed, which, by the way, had just one too warm bedcover. In nine days of stay they did not set up our room twice.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your feedback from your stay with us. Nice to hear that you appreciated the hotel and the location. The hotel offer different categories of rooms and they are in variable sizes, some of them are quite small actually. Regarding the cleaning it sounds very strange cleaning every day. However, we have had a meeting regarding this and we have also walked over our policies and routines to secure that this will not happen again.

Kind regards,

Charlotta Svedberg

I stayed for 3 nights, and had a Deluxe room. The hotel is very stylish, with lots of nice design details. But it had a few strange solutions in the rooms. Tough large rooms, there was no closets in the room, except for a small closet that was filled with a ironing-board. It was also a bit cramped in the bathroom, and not a lot of counter-space for toiletries. Breakfast was good, but would have expected a bit more for the price.

Free Wifi, an enormous 50" flatscreen, good location, and very good service are big plusses.

So all in all, I would recommend it, but I will probably choose another hotel the next time, due to the price.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your nice feedback from your stay with us. It was nice to hear that you liked our recently renovated rooms. We are aware of the issue with closets and are looking over that.
The location for the hotel is really perfect in the city center, with walking distance to attractions, restaurants and public transportations.

I got 25% discount for booking in advance and for 3 nights on the hotel's own website.
Arrived via Arlanda airport - Arlanda Express stops 50m from the hotel.
Superior twin room - clean and spacious bathroom, but small cupboard for hanging clothes.
They provide slippers.
Breakfast - wide selection and tasteful.
On the negative side - no individual air conditioning unit and no floor heating in the bathroom.
6th floor - no street noise or train noise/vibration.
Short walk to Old Town aka Gamla Stan, subway station, bus stops.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking your time and write us a review.
You have understood quite right, the best deals can be found on the hotel's own website.
Also nice to read that you appreciated the breakfast buffet.

In Sweden there is unfortunately not so many days that you would need an air condition so that is not so common here.

Location is by far the most convenient, just outside the Arlanda express. The design is modern yet timeless, typically swedish but also cozy. The beds are fantastic. Breakfast also very good. overall good choice for business and exploring the city

Do not book the 'cabin' rooms if you have the slightest bit of claustrophobia or do not like being in a 10x10 room with no window, no air conditioning and smelling of chemicals.
I walked in and walked right back out again. The hotel front desk admitted that they were overbooked and tried to tell me that everything else in town was booked and that many other hotels in Stockholm have rooms like this. Shame of them if they do. I know they do 'cabin' rooms in Japan where space is at a premium and the rooms are typically short use, but I'm here for 3 days and no way could I spend any time in such a small, smelly space. Thank goodness the front desk was wrong and I was able to move to the Best Western Bentley which has windows and more than 100 sq ft of floor space.
The smell of chemicals I attribute to the floor to ceiling mural in the room. A mirror and soothing paint job would be a better idea.
Is there no limit to how low hotels will stoop to make a profit! Shame on you Nordic Sea!

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else.

Dear Guest,

Thank you your feedback.

At first I am sorry that the hotel did not meet your expectations regarding the room.
We offer rooms in four categories and they are in different sizes. The smallest are the cabin rooms without window. The feeling is so different, some people wish especially these rooms and others like you, think they are too small.

During these dates there was a big congress in Stockholm and almost every hotel was sold
out. I am glad to hear you found a room nearby.

Kind Regards,

Just stayed at the nordic sea hotel, 2 min walk to the central station and bus to arlunda airport 45mins by bus 20mins by train We took the bus.Its close to any number of resturants and pubs also shopping. Its about a15 min walk to old town and a 5min walk to the hop on hop off buses. Pick which company you take as some offer more routes. The hotel is modern, clean, friendly they will give you advice on which taxi or resturant is good that wont rip you off. Breakfast is worth it, continential and cooked, (bacon eggs.) We were good till the evening meal.Every room has a different mural on the doors and wall its a bit of fun. 128 has a horse on it.The icebar is worth a look but beware it does cost you to get in, if you stay in the hotel it is cheaper, Its great if you want cool photos ! The bishops arms is good for a pint around the corner , A heinekin pint will set you back 66sek. Now for a bit of reality about the undesireables that hang out at the max next door to the bishop that accost you for money and cigaretts and have the dirty habit of spitting everywhere but saying that I never felt unsafe at any time and would not hesitate to reccomend this hotel. I am very glad to have visited Sweden and the nordic sea hotel. Thank you to all the staff involved.

Room Tip: The staff actually offer you good rooms ! hows that, We chose what floor we wanted.

This hotel is adjacent to the train to the airport. We were booked there, in part, because of this. It is very centrally located. Our room was simple but elegantly furnished, in a true stream-lined Nordic fashion. Entrance to the residential floors was governed by our room key which I find to be a welcome feature.
The bathroom was truly handsome and well-appointed. We had to leave quite early but were able to partake of the hotel's generous breakfast offerings. The Ice Bar is in the lobby of the hotel, and the hotel will make a reservation for you, and secure a discount as well. We reserved before we got to Stockholm to insure we could get in. It was fun, not only because of the uniqueness of it, but also because of all the sculpted ice walls, designed by well-known Swedish artists.

Room Tip: Try for a corner room with lots of light on an upper floor.
