Reviewed 19 May 2011

So good that I consider keeping it a secret, but go & stay! (& keep them in business until next time we need a hotel in Stockholm). Stayed in a superior room with balcony for 3 nights, with children 3 & 7 yrs old. We try to avoid the big hotel chains - prefer more cosy rooms that feel like home which Freys really did! Family-friendly-points for; on a quiet pedestrian street so no traffic just outside the entrance area, balcony is safe for little kids as well and no glass tables or other furniture with sharp edges in the room. Carena child-cots that are sturdy & big enough for a 3yr old (no need for big extra bed for our youngest and the oldest stayed on the sofa-bed). Staff was friendly and great with the kids & assisted with finding milk-free products for our lactose-intolerant boy at breakfast. Kitchen corner with fridge in the room was convenient for serving a little balcony-supper to the kids before bedtime (the lovely bathrobes will keep chill out) . Mum & dad can enjoy the balcony too; a cappucino (from the inhouse Belgobar) & rooftop view of Stockholm while waiting for the kids to fall asleep is hereby recommended!

The good:
Location was excellent, just a few minutes walk from the Arlanda Express platform on the Central Station. We walked to the old town without too much problem.
Breakfast was very tasty, there were lots of options.
The sauna area was very clean, large and empty.
Most of the staff were friendly and helpful
Free wifi in the room / public areas, it was fast and reliable.

The bad:
Even though I specifically aksed for a twin room, I was given a tiny room, without any space to separate the beds. The reception staff weren't very helful until I said I'd check out and move to another hotel if they didn't provide me with a twin room. We were then moved to a larger room. I could have done without spending almost 40 minutes arguing with the staff.
The beds were quite hard and most surfaces in the room were filled with trinkets and decorations, very nice but not essential, it just made it difficult to open the windows.
The reception area and restaurant were very dark and gloomy.

My husband and I stayed here for four nights and were really pleased with it. The room was small but very comfortable and clean. A window seat, nicely decorated, free wi-fi, and breakfast is included. We felt it was very reasonably priced and the location is very central to the main shops, the train station is a minute down the road, and the old town Gamla Stan is a pleasant 10-minute walk away.

We went to Stockholm for a side trip for our European Holiday.
Travelling as a family of 5 we needed 2 rooms, the rooms were a little small compared to Australian standards, but were fine.
Service was excellent and friendly.
Rooms were clean and functional and had all the amenities needed, this hotel is worth its 4 stars.
Breakfast was included in the rate and there were no complaints, even from my fussy 8 and one of the 14 year old twins.
Location is a plus, it is a 5 min walk from the super efficient Arlanda Express to and from the airport.
This is a hidden gem in Stockholm.

The Freys Hotel was chosen for this trip because of the proximity to the train station. We were a group of three women travelling, and did not want to carry around our luggage, or have to pay the expense of cabs. It is a close two block walk to the station. The room at Freys was very nice, and set up for the three of us when we arrived. It was clean and pleasant. The staff was extremely helpful, and the breakfast was excellent. Because we were leaving on a very early train, before the breakfast buffet opened, they arranged for us to have breakfast early and had it waiting for us. It was also nice that the breakfast area turned into a restaurant and bar for the evening. A very enjoyable stay.

Hotel is centrally located very close to train station and main shopping area. Also within walking distance of Gamla Stan and other sites. Rooms have been recently remodeled and are in nice condition. Room size is small and tight for 2 adults and adult child but that is fairly common in Stockholm. Breakfast buffet has a great selection and hotel restaurant provides an excellent dinner selection although somewhat expensive. Hotel staff were very friendly and helped us during our stay. I would deifnitely recommend this hotel for a stay in Stockholm.
