“Great hotel”
Reviewed 18 October 2012

Stayed for 4 night October 2012. The staff were excellent at all times, knowledgeable and helpful. We selected a junior suite which was one large room with a sitting area and would do so again. Unlike most of Europe, the room was and felt very spacious and made for comfortable cocktail hours before dinner and a great place for organizing the days activities. All important amenities provided, safe, refrig with complimentary soda water and apple cider daily, iron-pants press, free wifi (although somewhat weak on the top floor where we were located) and free access to computer and printer. Very nice breakfast. Location is very convenient to both bus lines and subway and city is easy to get around. Would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend.

Room Tip: Excercise room was undergoing renovation while we were there. Should be completed soon.

Good located, just 15 min walk from the Gamla Stan. Clean and comfortable with enjoyable breakfast. Rooms have all the needed equipment for a bad organized tourist. Design is quite interesting as well.

First, this is old hotel
Second, this hotel is under renovation when I stayed
Third, hotel room very small, bathroom stuff very very old fashion, but still in normal function
Fourth, elevator using a door, and not so friendly to operate, not so easy for elder person.
Fifth, road to elevator is far and hard to find

Overall, clean small room, weird elevator, weird room layout, weird experience for me..

Very good location. Friendly and helpful staff! Good breakfast, very good quality of food items! Small room but comfortable......
We'll choose the same hotel, if available, for a next trip/stay in Stockholm.

I have stayed at Birger Jarl many times as I travel to Stockholm for business. The rooms at the hotel is of varied standard. The superior rooms are modern, clean and new but some of the standard rooms are of older style and a bit worn. All rooms are very spacious.

Great breakfast and amenities in room include brand products (FACE Sthlm), free sparkling water and free wifi (a must for a business hotel). Location is a bit from central Stockholm so depending on where you are going. The restaurants and bars at Stureplan and around are a ten minute walk. The metro is also close to the hotel.

Hotel has a small gym with cardio machines and free weights (ok for a hotel gym but not very fancy-modern). There is a sign calling this the temporary gym, but that has been there for over a year so not sure if this will be replaced.

Best –Breakfast
Good – Rooms
Not so good – nothing

Stayed here for a couple of days for business. It's generally ok. Junior rooms were spacious and reasonably priced for Stockholm. Staff were friendly too. A couple of odd things though. Bit of an odd configuration of rooms-I was top floor and the 'special' lift was broken. The bar area is more a collection of chairs in the foyer than anything thought through.

We arrived early, about two hours before check-in, but the staff did not make a fuzz and gave us a room right away. The room was OK, but too small. We asked for a twin room, and due to the limited space, the two twin beds were put together and could not be moved. Also, the furniture was worn and the room had a look of being designed "the cheap way".
However, we enjoyed our stay very much and if you decide to stay here, do not miss the breakfast! My friend works at a luxury hotel, and she was impressed by the selection, the appearance, and the freshness of the food served. It was by far the best hotel breakfast we've had!
