“small room with small TV”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2013 via mobile

Stayed here several times but start to feel the room is too small and the TV is a joke. this reminds me of those small Japanese boutique hotel in Tokyo.
beaks fast is good but it is the same food every day. if they don't improve, I will try somewhere else next time

This hotel's services have improved - internet is now free, the standard rooms have a tea/coffee maker set and several areas have been completely renovated. Breakfast is standard and due to the number of guests crowded into a small area, not at ease. Rooms are standard, but beds and bed linen are excellent. Rooms are however, not yet equipped with the plug sockets a modern traveller needs: in order to recharge my pc, mobile etc, i had to remove lamps etc. from their sockets. Shower is excellent and the bathroom fittings, practical yet utilising space effectively.

For a single night's stay, this hotel will pass muster. But if you are planning on more than one night, ensure right at the time of booking that your room window is openable, and ask for extension cords, request room closer to the lifts and on higher floor so that a patch of the sky is visible. For those only sleeping in the room, this is an excellent choice as the hotel has done what it can to ensure that its guests sleep well. Local travel is no problem as everything is within 4 minutes walking distance and taxis arrive at the hotel door to pick up guests. Food is standard, unimaginative.

Room Tip: Higher floor, openable window, closer to lift.

Stayed here for 4 nights last week. Hotels in Stockholm are expensive but I think Birger Jarl is good value for money. As mentioned by others, the rooms are quite small but you can upgrade if you want to. The rooms are a modern Swedish design and are clean and comfortable with great showers. The breakfast buffet, which is included, is excellent. It's also in a good location for walking to the centre and is about 5 minutes walk to the nearest t-bahn and bike station. There are many restaurants within a 15 minute walk. The reception staff were very efficient and helpful. I would recommend this hotel.

My husband and I stayed at Birger Jarl on Friday night and really enjoyed our experience. The room was small but quiet - our room was next to the lift and the noisy ice machine and the soundproofing was so good you could hear neither. The bed was comfy and the room clean and we had a great sleep. The breakfast was incredible, we could have stayed for another hour just grazing - delicious fruits, breads, meats, cheeses, pancakes etc. (and great coffee). They even gave us brollies for the day to explore the city. Nice front-of-house staff and atmosphere.

I stayed here for one night. All in all an excellent experience. The rooms are not huge but they are very clean and comfortable. The location is great and is a short walk into the city centre. Breakfast is good and the staff are excellent. From a business travelers perspective it pretty much ticked all the boxes.
