“Cheap and city centre close”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

A classic conference hotel. Ok rooms, good service.
I used to live close to this hotel, and it's a very nice area.
Close to the subway, walking distance to the city centre (10 min).
If you just want to sleep and have a good breakfast, this is more then perfect

Room Tip: Chose the most simple for your needs. The rooms doesn't get better by upgrade.

The hotel is well located and has a nice bar and restaurant at the ground floor, but as in many other hotels it can be very noisy from the neighbor rooms. The staff were aware about the problem (with a loud group beside us) and transferred us to a more quite, and nicer, corner room. The hotel is ok, but nothing special about it - overrated, as most places are, in my opinion.

Room Tip: Try to find a corner room.

I loved the hotel, nice and clean. Good service and breakfast. I advise to go early for breakfast or it can be full of people, but the food will always be enough. The position was good, we could arrive almost everywhere walking, but you can find some hotel a bit closer to the center.

This hotel made for a fantastic stay in Stockholm. Well placed for walking through the city centre down to the waterfront and also all major site seeing can be done on foot. There are more conveniently placed hotels but you pay for it and really we enjoy walking so it gave us an excuse to explore. The Staff are all very friendly and speak excellent English, breakfast excellent (really!) and the bed...Well, we didn't want to get out of it! Would definitively come back

My husband and I stayed at the Birger Jarl before our son's wedding, and I returned there after a visit to Italy in July. The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was over the top! The hotel was convenient to all areas of interest, just a short walk and the metro was nearby. The room was well appointed with very comfortable beds. We will definitely stay there on on next trip to Stockholm.
