“First is really the second home”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2010

First hotel is very nice, cosy and comfortable. Staff is very friendly. Tea equipment is provided on request or if you stay for long. Internet is rather slow, but it is free of charge. Breakfast is included into the accommodation price, it is rather tasty and baked goods can vary (there was even a waffle iron to make your own waffle with jam and cream).
The interesting thing in this hotel is that there is a door between some rooms, so you can arrange a two-room apartment with your collegue/friend from your two nearby rooms.
The hotel is very close to a T-bana station and it takes just about 7 minutes to get to the centre of Stockholm. Also there is Willy’s store (open till 10 p.m.) just 100 meters away from the hotel, so you can buy some food or light bear and eat at the hotel after a long working day.
There is a little gym and sauna in the hotel. The pleasant thing is that women’s sauna was free almost all the time. But an entry to the gym/sauna was not convenient as it was through the hotel hall and the restaurant.

I stayed in First Royal Hotel near the Stockholm International Fair in Sept 2010.
I was not happy with the unfriendly staff and unattended reception. The reception was unattended most of the time, and each time you have to wait for few minutes until someone appears from the office in the back of the reception. The staff at the reception was unfriendly. In particular, there is a receptionist called Mari. She is very rude and always had an angry look on her face. At some point, we were considering changing to another hotel because it is not very welcoming to stay in a hotel where staff are unfriendly.
The hotel room is OK. Not all rooms do not match the photos you might see on their website. The lobby is a kind of dark and old-fashioned. The breakfast is OK (not great).

Attended a conference at Stockholm Fairs. Very handy location for that purpose. Stayed in room that had not been renovated. Seemed kind of dirty. Would stay there again if I am attending another conference at Stockholm Fairs, but would not look forward to the stay...

Coming with a car to Stockholm this hotel offered easy parking, great room with lot's of space for children, superb breakfast and the Stockholm travel card. It is only 100 m away from the commuter train station and easy to find by car since it is situated in the trade fair area of Stockholm.
