First Hotel Reisen
Ranked #60 of 154 Hotels in Stockholm
Reviewed 8 August 2014 via mobile

This hotel is absolutely gorgeous. Yes it is not top luxury because the building is old and a little tough to renovate and keep in tip top form- don't expect 5 star luxury but expect 5 star class. Staff are friendly and professional. Breakfast is amazingly put together and has a good choice and quality. Breakfast room is nice too overlooking waterfront. The pool and sauna was amazing, like a secret cave underground. I loved my stay here, strolling distance to the best of Stockholm.

Reisen has an excellent location in Stockholm, and the first impression is rather good, as the hotel comes across in a modern way; also the restaurant is rather good. Rooms are however worn down and seems to be in need of a makeover.

We used this hotel as the base of our Stockholm explorations when we were here for our wedding - the whole wedding party stayed here. Everyone loved the hotel and thought it was gorgeous. Perfect location in a historic building.

Friendly & accommodating staff, great breakfast, and lovely outdoor sitting area as well.

All of the rooms that our group got were unique and everyone enjoyed them.

We stayed in one of the rooms that has a sauna which was really quite a treat! Worked wonders and was really fun to have.

Fantastic place!

A very nice hotel close to the water and the Stockholm old town.
The staff was helpful and I specifically enjoyed the various bits and pieces of the delicious breakfast. The price was reasonable but I would have wishes for a bit bigger rooms. The beds were excellent though.

I can't give only 4/5 although the building itself deserves it at maximum (maybe better 3/5). Rooms are worn a lot, lifts smells a bit...
What makes me to give 5/5 is location and staff. You can't find place at this price where You will be closer to Stockholm at its own beauty. Every direction from hotel You go, the walk will be always awesome.
No problem with noise from street.
Defenitely come back when will be in Stockholm.

The position of the hotel is very good, in the central of the most important part of Stockholm, the breakfest is fantastic, the reception staff is very friendly and always to give information, the busstation is on +/- 20 meter

This is a perfect location with a very helpful staff. The breakfast is wonderful. The beds very comfortable. They had a portable fan in the room which was really helpful with the unusually warm weather we had.
