“Great Location in Stockholm”

Classy small hotel in central Stockholm. Steo out from T-Centralen Railway station and 200 metres awy is the Freys Hotel. On the ground level is a BelgianBeer Garden Restaurant which was always buzzing. The staff on front office of hotel were very friendly. We had a room on the top floor (7 floors only) with a balcony.

Room Tip: Our balcony room was on the top floor(level 7) but was first in from the firedoor, room 708.. This d...

The location is superb - right next to the Arlanda express train. Couldn't be more convenient if you're coming/going from/to the airport. It's also close to the old town and you can get pretty much anywhere you'd want to get to by walking.

The hotel is cute - very well decorated, great atmosphere. Our room was small but slightly bigger than we expected for Europe. Everything was very clean and well taken care of.

The breakfast was good. Service was good as well.

We were thoroughly pleased with our experience.

We stayed at Freys for three nights in April 2012. Only 20 minutes from Arlanda Airport on the Arlanda Express to Central station. It's cheaper to purchase a ticket for the Arlanda Express online, before you travel, as opposed to buying a ticket at the station or on the train itself. You just need to take the credit card you used to book the tickets with you. The ticket inspector on the train will simply swipe it.

The hotel is only a five minute walk from Central station (take the left exit half as you get off the Arlanda express, rather than go into the main station and you will see the hotel sign in front of you). The hotel is within easy walking distance to the shops, restaurants and attractions. Our room was very small and dark which was made worse by the fact that it rained throughout our stay. However the room itself was clean. The breakfast selection wasn't huge but the food was very good quality. Another plus point is that the hotel offers free wifi. All in all, the hotel was in a perfect location for a short visit.

On our first day, we did the free Stockholm walking tour. Meet around 10am at Sergels Torg at Central Station at the top of the staircase. It's not absolutely free, as it operates on a tips basis. However, it was well worth it as the guide, Kevin, was very knowledgeable and entertaining too. The tour covered a wide range of information including the origins of Stockholm, the Swedish royal family, the assassination of the prime minster in 1986 and the story behind “Stockholm Syndrome”.
The tour lasted almost 2 hours so ensure you wear comfortable walking shoes.

Vasa museum is definitely worth a visit. It's built around a ship which sunk on its maiden voyage in 1628 but salvaged and restored in the 1960s.

The Medieval Museum is also worth a visit (located under the bridge with the palace on Gamla Stan directly in front of you). Your ticket also entitles you to to free admission to the Stockholm City Museum, although we did not find that one particularly interesting.

Go to the Katarina viewing platform for views over the city. The elevator was closed for maintenance but you can take the stairs around the back of the elevator if you're feeling energetic.

Overall an enjoyable city break.

On arrival our room was not ready no big deal as they Bar has a vast selection of Belgian beers :-) the guy in reception (so sorry cannot recall his name but he normally does security I think) could not have been more friendly and helpful, he had a very relaxed attitude and a great sense of humour, in actual fact everyone we met in Sweden went out of their way to be friendly and welcoming, there was some further confusion with the room but it was all sorted out and we had a great time. The location is ideal close to the Rail station , underground and Bus terminus but best of all the attitude of the staff

Room Tip: Not a tip on the room but just general advice, Sweden is expensive so watch your budget but the peop...
