“Swedes are so gorgeous”
Reviewed 2 September 2014

Booked into the Nordic Sea but was moved to this Hotel which is next door across the road.
Reception staff were courteous, friendly and helpful at check in and when presented with questions.
Great breakfast- quite an extensive selection.
Parking was a bit pricey though even whilst staying at the hotel.
A comfortable stay - though being interrogated by a certain hotel member of staff in order to get through; when tired after a long night out; was not at all appreciated at that time of the morning.

My granddaughter (21) and I had 3 nights at this hotel and loved it. It is very central and most attractions are within walking distance, and the Hop On Hop Off buses and boats are very useful. All the staff were extremely polite and helpful especially those in reception. When I mislaid the key to open the lock on my case a man was immediately sent up to break the lock. Likewise when the safe wouldn't open a man came straight away to replace the batteries. The beds are very comfortable and the bedroom was quiet. There are some very good restaurants within a few minutes' walk such as the Meat and Grill and Bistro Bestick to name just 2. I can thoroughly recommend this hotel, and should I go again to Stockholm I would definitely stay at the Nordic Light.

Room Tip: Stay on an upper floor

Stylish design hotel in the heart of Stockholm. I stayed for one night in a deluxe room. I am very pleased with the stay. The room is really nice, and the bed s are comfortable, ensuring a good nights sleep. Dinner from the hotel restaurant (room service) was delicious, and the breakfast menu the followong morning was quite good. All in all, highly recommended.

I've been to Nordic Light hotel and absolutely loved it! Hope I will come back again some day. Beautiful room, delicious food.... One thing I remember (hope I did not mix it with some other hotel, but pretty sure that it is the one): in the dining room there is a big transparent something about being one week on the diet:" I've been on the diet for a week and all I lost is 7 days!" It made me laugh, because food was so delicious that I couldn't resist it!

We were seriously jet lagged. They went out of their way to make a room a available. Room "maid" ran and got us ice and extra pillows and made sure we were comfortable. Chef gave me Tabasco for migraine, them called to see if I was ok. Amazing

Hotel location is great, very convenient for central station. Checked in after early flight & room was already available -an unexpected welcome bonus. The lobby is stylish and all staff were very welcoming and helpful including Jesper on the front desk who gave good local dining recommendations. The rooms are adequately sized & have very comfortable beds with luxurious bed linens. Generally the amenities in the room were exactly what you would expect in a 4 star hotel. Some of the furniture in the room showing minor signs of ageing such as loose handles & chipped corners but all perfectly functional. Toiletries in bathroom are luxurious organic Swedish brand but in captive holders so no nice reminders of stay to take home. The room price is competitive & fair for a convenient location in the centre of the Swedish capital. Hotel has bikes for guest use which were a great way to see this compact city. Breakfast buffet was a real treat-lots of choice with excellent local organic choices & home made preserves-yum! Cappucino was an optional chargeable extra at breakfast- a slight disappointment (they do provide very acceptable Swedish filter coffee for no additional charge). Not a five star review because detail of the cleaning slightly lets the property down. The room, bathroom & public areas were basically clean but a fixture in the lift was a little dusty & tea tray rubbish from a previous guest had been left in the ice bucket in the room. Have become accustomed to hotels of this standard offering a small surprise to guests eg. chocolate on the pillow on arrival which was missing here but extensive delicious breakfast buffet does compensate for this to some degree.

The Nordic Light is an interesting hotel not least because it markets itself as a designer hotel with a boutique-like experience. While I tend to gravitate toward traditional (as in classically-designed) hotels, this really intrigued me and I was looking forward to a four-night stay while in Stockholm for business.

The location of the Nordic Light is beyond superb. It's perfect for tourists, business travelers and others.

I found the staff friendly and fluent in English, just as one would expect in Sweden where English is practically the lingua franca. The service was slightly better than most three-star hotels, but it did lack in some areas. For example, there was no bellman available for arriving or departing guests needing luggage assistance. Also, the front desk was also at times only staffed with one employee, which was odd.

The public spaces were clean and designed in the very contemporary decor that one expects based on the hotel's marketing. As for my room, I was slightly disappointed. This was mostly because I actually found the room to be kind of dark. While there were several lights, there never seemed to be enough to make the room bright. The air-conditioning controls were also pretty unusual, which made it difficult for me to control the temperature during an unusually warm time in Stockholm when temperatures ranged between 85 and 90 degrees.

The room was mostly clean with only the garbage in the bathroom having not been removed from the last guest. The furniture had a fair number of dings and scratches on it and the bathroom itself could use maintenance as the caulking in the tiles was visibly dirty in some places.

Other small things were off, too. The mini-bar wasn't restocked each day despite having been used. There weren't enough towels provided, either. Also, no slippers were provided in my room, though the rooms around me all received them. (I know this because I saw the maid's cleaning cart.)

The TV selection was decent, but it would be nice if CNN or other English language programming was offered beyond the BBC World Service. Wireless internet, which was free, was more than sufficient.

Breakfast each day was pretty good with just about something for everyone's tastes in the buffet, however, the service was poor. I was never once greeted by an attendant. There also wasn't anyone making fresh coffee or espresso for guests, which I thought was odd.

It is difficult to get a good hotel in Stockholm. While the Nordic Light wasn't perfect, it wasn't bad. I would consider staying here again, but only if the price was right.

Hi!

I have read many reviews, but not many that are as well-written and thorough as yours.

What I can make of it is that we have succeeded in some parts but failed in some. The room should be clean upon arrival, a "hello" is easy to give the guests when entering the breakfast, etc.

I wish that we could have the same amount of feedback from every guest. Then I promise you, the hotel business would be a lot more responsive and guest friendly. I'm not saying that we aren't already, but we could have a better level of service in all departments of the hotel, which then would lead to a higher rate of guest satisfaction.

We would be honored if you returned to us. Remember that you're always welcome back to Nordic Light Hotel. Just let us know before you intend to return so that we can arrange something special for you.

Warm regards,
Philip Persson, Nordic Light Hotel
