“Good location”
Reviewed 7 December 2013 via mobile

General Impression: Very comfortable hotel. The lobby is spacious with sitting areas to relax, complimentary coffee and cookies, and restaurant/bar. The wi-fi is strong, fast, and reliable. I was able to watch Netflix in my room and do all my office work easily (which requires a steady internet connection).

Location: Excellent. It's located right next to a subway station (about a 30 second walk) so you can get to and from the airport very easily. There is a "hop on hop off " bus stop very close as well. You can walk to the main shopping drag in about 10-12 mins. You can walk to the old town in about 20-25 mins. There is a Coop supermarket directly across the street.

Service. Outstanding. The hotel staff are super-friendly and will see to your every need. I was really impressed by their professionalism.

Food: Very tasty. The breakfast buffet is extensive. The bacon is out of this world. There is all kinds of cheese, bread, fruits, etc. Importantly, there is smoked salmon from Monday to Friday.

Room: This is the only thing that was a little disappointing. They are small and seem in need of a renovation. They contrast sharply with the swankiness of the lobby and other areas. I'm not sure if this applies to every room, but my room was super small, with very little walking area. It was so small that it made for awkward furniture placement. The bed was pressed into one corner of the room and there was no sitting table or arm chair. There was a writing desk and chair but that was it. It was hard to enjoy a glass of wine because there was no where relaxing to sit. There was no fridge (not because they couldn't afford it, but because there's really no space for one.) The one good thing was that it overlooked the street and had a nice view. (Maybe all the rooms in Sweden are this small?)

I would certainly stay here again but would make sure that I got a bigger room.

Really disapointed when I realised we picked the wrong time to live here. The hotel has just been bought by a large chain, and its obvious since no renovations has been made for the last 3-5 years. Sauna nailed shut, showes closed, walls in a scratched up mess. I would not stay here for that least a year.

We stayed at this hotel for several nights because the location suited us then. All I am able to say about this hotel is that the lobby is okay but the rest could be compared to the ETAP hotel in Germany. Well, atleast there ,you do not have to pay the same amount as the Amaranten hotel in Stockholm.

I spent only one night here, with my colleagues. Location is great! Restaurants, bars and the city center is right outside the doors. The reception, lobby and hotel bar was clean, nice designed and the hotel has a very helpfull staff. The room was okay, a bit tired and was not perfectly clean.
But the reason why it only get's 4 out of 5 is the smell. The whole travel party noticed several times a horrible smell of sewage in the corridors and rooms. Although it was not a constant smell, it was quite sickening...
I dont know if this is happening all the time or if we only had bad luck- but if this problem is fixed, I would definitely stay here again!

Very good option to stay in Stockholm. The hotel, in Kungsholmen is just beside the Radhuset subway station, 30 seconds walking! The rooms are OK, mine was small, with no fridge and no tub. The bar is very interesting with a long list of good wines and helpful bartenders. The breakfast is another highlight, with a huge variety of breads, yogurts, fruits, cheeses and so on.

Have been visiting Amaranten quite regularly in the lat years on business trips.
I like the location, that allows to reach city centre in 15 min walk, but is also 50 mt from the metro station.
The hotel is in need of renovation.
Absolutely avoid the rooms on the street side, for sure the lowest floors, the windows are purely insulated.
I always ask for room facing internal court best on higher floors.
Rooms are quite small, and essential.
Bed comfortable , but not excellent.
Breakfast buffet is very business like, more quantity then quality, at times very crowded.
Tested the restaurant, limited menu, but good quality, as usual in STKH quite expensive.
Bar area friendly and can sometime fun with some no hotel guest.
I choose it for location convenience, but rooms comfort needs improving

Nice hotel just 5-10 minutters from Arlanda Express. Choice took over from First, not sure if that is better, but at least it's now following choice hotels concept.

They seem still to be learning what to do, clear lack of elevators, and breakfast was very crowded

Rooms are OK, though a little strange with bathroom next to bed

Room Tip: Chose room on 7th floor which is supposed to be de luxe - facing back yard to avoid street sounds...
