“Terrible stuffy room with hardly any ventilation”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Could not sleep for almost the entire night as the room had no windows and the only source of ventilation was a tiny fan in the corner of the room and as a result the room was too stuffy to sit in let alone sleep! Front desk staff was unhelpful as they could not provide even a fan or any solution to help ventilate the room. The breakfast room also has no windows and the whole place feels like you're in some sort of underground bunker.

Place is very good! 3 min walk from Tunnelbana. But service is very poor!!!!! All the front desk personnel was unpleasant and unfriendly! Breakfast was ok, but a restaurant was very small. There is no lift there!!!! Be aware! And stairs are very narrow. No glasses in room. And shower was without water baisins. Strange place.
Oh, the price is higher than quality several times!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow! I have stayed in many hotels in my days but I´ve never stayed in a hotelroom with no windows. I felt like I was watching a bad movie and this was the room to guest cheap & nasty creaps. I have payed less to stay in a really nice hotel in Stockholm. Sometimes you think that, if it cost that much it can´t be that bad....but this was.

Room Tip: Change hotel....

This was by far the worst non-budget hotel I have ever stayed in. The staff were downright surly, the shower head fell off and could not be put back, and the breakfast was dreadful.Not in a convenient location and the rooms (down an incredibly long hallway) faced a park on the first floor with very flimsy curtains and, as noted by others, was was very hot. The sauna did not work (even though advertised on the site). I was not expecting 5-star service or rooms but this was far below par. The hotel appears to have fallen on hard times and may have been much nicer at one time.

The hotel is well located, near tube, train and bus travel and most areas are walkable for the determined visitor. A nice selection of cafes, bars and restaurants nearby. The room was ok but very hot as south facing and had only very small opening vents. Despite our efforts to keep the curtains closed, the room staff always left them open. Bathroom was a wet room, excellent, but the extractor did not work. The wi fi was so weak at the very end of the hotel where our room was located it was impossible to use.
Disappointed that we were unable to access a pc with printer for checking in on line and printing off boarding passes etc.

Staff generally polite but not over enthusiastic. The breakfasts were good although the dining room was far too small for the hotel and so did get very busy and crowded.

Room Tip: Most of the rooms are south facing and will get hot. All on ground floor so accessibility is good ho...

Recently we stayed at hotel Alexandra in Stockholm. It is located in south of Stockholm, one station away by train from central station. It is not convenient to go by underground. Bit far from sight seeing spots. But rooms are ok. Breakfast is good. Staff is quite friendly.

Room Tip: all rooms are on the ground floor so not much difference.

I do not understand the negative reviews about the Alexandra Hotel. If you want 5 star facilites, then pay 5 star prices. My son and I had 2 rooms for 4 nights and we were very comfortable. The rooms might be on the small side but we visited Stockholm to see the City and not to stay in our rooms! The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms met our needs. It was clean and the rooms were serviced each day. The breakfast room is fairly small but we always found a table. The choice and quality of the breakfast is very good and the staff are friendly. They are excellent at ensuring that everything is restocked and available.
Do not be put off by the detractors - you will have an enjoyable stay!!

Room Tip: The roons without windows are quieter as away from traffic noise.
