“Excellent stylish hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2009

Stayed here for 2 nights. Really conveniently located just outside the Arlanda Express station. Short walk to the old town Gamla Stan and to Stockholm city centre.

Stylishly decorated. We stayed in a comfortable room on the 2nd floor. Bathroom was shower only. Fantastic buffet breakfast included.

Would definately stay here again

This is a very nice and modern hotel, located just behind the Arlanda Express terminal in Stockholm. Is centrally located to all areas for day shopping and tourism and for nightlife aswell.
The personnel is very friendly and helpfull for reservations and directions.
The bar is really good and nice.
I would recommend it !

I've stayed in many horrible hotels in Stockholm for the same price as this one, so it totally took me by surprise. Staff were super efficient, rooms were spacious and modern, lots of little nice touches and great food. Plus it's right there in the heart of the city, next to the airport train station. Fave hotel in the city.

The hotel is immediately next to the main railway station and has a sister hotel next door. Ideal for arrival on the Arlanda airport express train. Good food. Clean comfortable affordable rooms and welcoming staff.

My husband and myself stayed at this hotel for 5 nights for business and leisure.. Our rate included a Mood room and breakfast.

The room was smallish, but functional, although a little more storage space would have been good (wardrobe space is adequate for shorter stays). The bathroom was adequate, although my preference would have been for a bath rather than the provided shower, however, hot water was plentiful and the pressure was good. Also, would have preferred 2 dressing gowns, 1 is not really adequate for a double room. Bath products were ok, towels nice and fluffy in his and her colours (Grey and white).

The Hastens bed was very confortable, and the room was very quiet, so we definitely got a good nights sleep.

We liked the bar area, and the 4 complimentary drink vouchers given to us when we checked in. Cocktails are very nice!! Friday and Saturday nights there is a DJ in the lobby bar, this seemed very popular, and although we didn't attend, there was no noise transference to our room.

Breakfast was good. A nice buffet, and plenty of seating so never to crowded. Good selection of hot and cold foods, plus cereal, yogurts, fruit and smoothies. Particuarly liked the mini croissants and the crispy bacon. Bread selection was excellent.

Free internet was a plus, and not a problem being wired. We actually installed our own inroom wireless router so that 2 laptops could connect to the same connection for free!! Wireless internet was also available for a price.

They are building a new Metro station in front of the hotel, so currently this is a building site, however, we were not inconvenienced by any building noise. The Metro station will be very handy for future hotel guests. Also, being about 20 metres from the Arlanda Express is very convenient. Also, most areas of central Stockholm are walkable from the hotel, so a great location.

Mini bar was well stocked and not too expensive. Also, we eventually located the in room coffee and tea making facilities which were most appreciated. Never used the inroom safe due to its location (almost floor level under the minibar), however never felt that security was an issue.

Room servicing was good, never actually saw the maid and she always did an excellent job.

Overall we were very pleased with our choice of hotel, and will probably stay here again on subsequent Stockholm visits, although perhps upgrade our room facilities next time :)

Nordic Light aspires to be one of the most hip hotels in Stockholm. And while it's trendy in its rough minimalism, it is far from nice and cosy. If you, like me, spend quite a few nights away from home, this hotel will only make you feel alone and alienated.

The newly opened 7th floor is horrible. Not just that it is still a mess, since there is no flooring. The walls are painted black and the setting is "factory-style".

I want my hotels nice and welcoming. I want to feel like I'm at home. I am tired of all these minimalistic design hotels trying to offer as little as possible for as much as possible.

My advice - skip Nordic Light. There are many nice hotels close to the main train station and Arlanda Express. Try for example Hotel Adlon. Or, if you don't mind spending a bit more, Radisson SAS.

Dear Maggie,
I am sorry that you can not give us another chance as I have spoken to you about over the phone. The corridor where your room was allocated is now closed again for further work. When it is opened again in the end of march it will be something very special in the hotelindustry. I would say something in between a modern factory-hall and an art-work. I think it can not be described but needs to be experienced.
I welcome both you and other design interested guests to us, Regulars as well as New-comers, to experience something new and innovative.
Very welcome

Overall a nice experience. We attended the New Years Eve party. Food was well prepared, my only issue was a broken chair.

Breakfast's were really fantastic, pretty much everything is offered that you could want to start the day.

The rooms were average, yes the lighting is unique, but not that much of a game changer. The only issue we had was the small bathroom. The TV was old and could use an update. And furniture for clothing would be nice. But the free ethernet in the room was a nice to have.

Location can't be beat. If you take the express train for the airport you can be in your hotel in 25 minutes.

Staff was very friendly. The other Nordic hotel across the street is a little more upscale and it has the Ice Bar.
