We stayed for 5 nights at the Hotel Rival in January 2013. Spectacular, that sums up the experience we had at the hotel. The hotel's decor is inspired movie themes, very nice! The rooms are modern and welcoming . We had a superior room, and the size was excellent . The bathroom is quite large, the only part that bothered me was the fact that part of the shower is a bit open, and the water makes a mess in bathroom. In the rooms we have some movies and cds available but at reception we can find a large collection . The breakfast is very good with a varied buffet and also has a few more options à la carte ( but not charged) .
The Rival Bistro is very nice , the food and the wine selection is excellent, as the Rival Cafe which is very cozy. On Fridays they a kind of "party" in the bar. Cool!!!
The reception staff , as well as the concierge are very friendly and were always open to any requests.
The location is very good , maybe not the best of stockholm, but is a few minutes walk from the center , and has a metro station practically next door .
The price is a little higher , but everything is expensive in Scandinavia . HOTEL RIVAL - Super recommended!
