Alexandra Hotel
Ranked #144 of 154 Hotels in Stockholm
Reviewed 23 March 2012

As I was looking for a midrange room (travelling solo), the affordable choice are rather thin on the ground. But this hotel does the job, with clean and functional rooms and a good breakfast. Service can't be called friendly, but it's not unfriendly either. Just don't ask too much...:)
I had a single room, which was good, but the wall on one side (probably another single room on the other side) was so thin I could hear others talking like it was almost in my own room! Pretty annoying and not really something you'd expect in a midrange place.
All in all ok, but if you have some more to spend, go for other choices.

I needed a bed so I could get to an early meeting the next morning and took a single room with no window. It was really nice that they did hang curtains, so it didn't feel as much like a cave! It was basic, small but clean - good enough for me. The staff wasn't particularly friendly, but they weren't rude or unpleasant, either. The breakfast was varied with plenty of fresh stuff.

The code I was given for wifi did not work, said the code had already been used when I tried to log in.

The shower was a little tricky to figure out, but a quick call to the reception gave me the answer I needed.

It's about a 5-7 min walk from the Medborgplatsen metro station.

Perfectly comfortable beds, no troubles with the wifi and a neat room.

Shower was lukewarm though, could've been hotter.

The personnel does not seem happy to work here. Checking in felt like going to a very thorough security check at the airport, and being found particularly suspicious.

our room was on the third floor we had to carry our cases up 2 flights of stairs one of them spiral assistance was not offered

room services consisted of 1 fresh towel per person per day and a plastic bag put over the top of the bin there was no evidence of room cleaning or bed making/changing

our flight on sunday was at 9 30 we needed to leave the hotel by 7 30
breakfast times for sunday were changed to 8 am we asked the receptionist for help and were told "i cannot help you there is coffee available " this was Sek20 per cup we left the hotel on a cold morning without the breakfast we had paid for
overall we found ,with the exception of 1 male member of staff, the reception people were at best curt and at worst keen to make it clear they were NOT there to help

Room Tip: book another hotel

We were looking for a decently priced but still nice Hotel in Stockholm. We booked a standard Doubleroom but got upgraded to a Suite (still not sure why..) The Suite had a living room, and a separate bedroom which was all in all actually nice, and a bathroom with a tub. The price was also good considering the size of the Suite and the location. The Breakfast is served in a room with no windows, it is true, but it is clean and the buffet was okay. Reasonable options catering to international guests. The negatives: the receptionists were not openly unfriendly but not nice either, they will check you in and thats it for communication until check out. The narrow spiral staircase that led to our room meant lugging our luggage up after a long flight.

Clean rooms, nice staff but No Windows in the rooms and it was so hot in the rooms that you needed bottled water to keep cool. Breakfast was ok and it is very inexpensive for Stockholm and centrally located. Free Wi-fi was good.
