We stayed at Hotel Rival from September 6-9th 2013.
If you're looking for a well appointed hotel that comfortably caters to the business and leisure traveler in Stockholm, go directly to Hotel Rival. It's happy staff is eager to go out of their way to please each guest and offer suggestions to make your stay memorable.While it is located on the island of Sodermalm, it's a great location and a very easy cab ride, or if you choose, a comfortable walk to either Old or New Stockholm.
We were told that the hotel was completely remodeled about 10 years ago when Benny Anderson of ABBA fame purchased the property. The rooms are great....they are clean and well appointed. The breakfast offering was expansive and delicious and we would return without hesitation.
While some travelers might choose not to give the property a 5 star rating due to the lack of an expansive main entry and public spaces and a formal, stuffy welcome arrival, the warm, welcoming experience we enjoyed as guests makes this a 5 star property by any measurement standard.
