“Not what you expect”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2012

I supposed that I had something else in mind when I entered the hotel. The reception and restaurnat looked very stylish and nice and at first impresison the room looked aswell. However we had reserved a renovated room (or at least thats what I hoped that we got).
The bathroom was in very poor standard. There vere serveral things missing, broken or not working (the towel dryer, sink - which was in plastic it seemed like - and somewhere to put the toilet paper - which in it's turn only gave us about 1/8 of a toilet roll).
The brekfast was nothing special, very simple and plain brekfat that you can find at any mediocer hotel in Sweden.
If I should say anything nice the beds were ok... I'm just happy that we didin't choose the unrenovated room for 200 SEK less - that must have been in very poor condition.

Would definately not recommend this hotel, there are several other hotels in Stockholm with better standard and I would happily pay the extra money for that.

The room was comfortable, although small and fairly worn. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet (included) had a nice selection. The advertised "wi-fi available" was for an additional fee. Fortunately, I booked through Hotwire and got a decent price, but I would not consider it a 4 star hotel or pay a 4 star price to stay here. It is located in a quiet neighborhood, close to several restaurants (the Thai restaurant next door is great) and grocery stores. It is about a 1 mile walk to the train station and city center. Public transportation is about 2 blocks away.

We really liked our room and our stay here. You could call the decor "shabby chic" with grand curtains, huge bathroom and a dressing room. Close to the station, but a walk to the centre is only 20 minutes for a casual stroll.
Breakfast was everything you could expect. I do recommend this hotel for value.

Hotel Hansson is in a great location - close to the city and university. But this is one expensive hotel. They charge for almost everything (35 euros for a cot for our child) and the hotel is only average. It is a quaint place and heritage in nature. The lobby area is well done. The staff are cheerful and helpful. But for the price one has the right to expect more than tiny wall-mounted televisions, largely unrennovated rooms, and only an average breakfast. I am starting to get very frustrated with the Internet service provided in high end hotels. The Internet here was okay -- slow and a tad unreliable. But you could only sign onto one account at a time. This is not longer good enough in the days of smart phones, tablets, and portable computers. If you are going to charge top dollar, then it is vital that the Hotel provide top flight facilities and services.

Large room, it comfortably accomodated three of us. Nice modern bathroom and good television. The buffet breakfast is GREAT! It definitely made getting up in the morning that much easier! The staff were wonderfully friendly and could answer any of our questions.

The location is wonderful - just a short walk to the nearest train station, or if you feel like strolling a bit further, it is not that far to walk the whole way into the Galleria.

Do not miss out on the local pizza bar! Visible from the front of the hotel, diagonal across the intersection. The BEST pizza I've ever had in my life (have made a return trip whilst in Stockholm, even when staying quite far away!). The staff do not speak English, so scrub up on reading menus in Swedish before you go. :)
