First Hotel Reisen
Ranked #58 of 155 Hotels in Stockholm
Reviewed 15 September 2013

The TV in our room was faulty and hadn't been fixed or replaced despite 24 hours notice, so we were upgraded to a better room, but without the view over the front. What was deficient, though, was the careless way rooms were serviced - broken light bulbs (we left one out to see what would happen; nothing), tea mugs left dirty, towels not folded (apparently hotel policy). The wifi was also a bit hit and miss - had to stand in the corridor to get a connection! Apart from such little niggles the hotel came up to expectations.

This hotel has a fantastic location on in old town right on the water. The lobby and restaurant have a trendy boutique hotel feel to them. Staff was friendly, professional, and helpful.

Some of the rooms have fantastic views. Even rooms on the side of the hotel have great views as long as one is in the top floor. The rooms - some with a maritime theme - are a bit worn down. This is particularly true of the bathrooms. While the rooms were not dirty, they were somewhat dusty. Beds, however, are very good. Rooms are on the small side, but bathrooms are astoundingly big - particularly the ones with saunas.

Food in the restaurant was good as well, and breakfast offered a great variety - though it tends to get quite crowded.

Ideally situated in the 'old town' and surrounded by museums, the Royal Palace, great restaurants and shops. The breakfast buffet is by far one of the most delicious we have had with loads to choose from.

Room Tip: Room was small but adequate considering we were out sightseeing. A bit dark.

This hotel has the perfect location! Part of the Old Town, right by the Palace and overlooking beautiful Skeppsholmen. The service was very good, room was clean and with a good sized bathroom. Great breakfast buffé! Bar was lively in the evening and had a great range of cocktails!
Overall a great choice of hotel, albeit a little pricey.

Old hotel at a nice location. We booked an executive room for a romantic weekend. The room was unfortunately not as nice as expected. It was quite noisy. We heard the elevators going up and down all the time. The shower was in the bath and located sideways which made showering quite awkward. And there were 2 seperate beds (with 2 seperate duvets) which we did not like.
The staff was quite friendly and helpful and breakfast was superb.

We traveled with friends in June 2013 to take a Baltic cruise that started in Stockholm, Sweden. We chose the First Reisen hotel primarily because of location in the old town close to the harbor and sight seeing. While the hotel is very European in style (read small rooms), it is ideally located and the staff is very friendly. They all speak English very well and communication was never a problem. I would definitely stay there again given the opportunity.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the harbor.

The place of the hotel is a beautiful place, the people are friendly and very helpfull. In the morning a lot of cyclist are on the way to the work and this is sometimes very dangerous, be carefull. The beds are very good and also the bathroom is perfect. Because the hotel is in the middle of the city... it is easy to go everywhere; to a restaurant, to visit some monuments and for me and my team...it is very close to the racevenue, what is perfect :-)

Room Tip: Watch out for the first floor near the little streets, a lot of traffic in the morning!
