    Clean ship-like cabin rooms; great bathroom

    by

    I think this hotel was made like a ship and so the rooms make you feel like you're in a ship cabin. Some reviewers in other sites complained about there being no window, and so I decided to get that room with no window just to try it out myself...it was okay. It didn't bother me at all. There was curtain on that wall where a window could have been, and maybe they could just put in a mirror there so that the room feels more spacious. The bed was comfy and I slept well, and I also used the wifi. The bathroom was very nice with a bathtub and so I was able to immerse myself in warm water after a long day of walking ang getting lost around Gamla Stan. But the great feature of the hotel is the breakfast which had a lot of choices and the attendant from Singapore was very good in keeping things in order. The hotel is easily reached after three metro stops from the main station. You just have to walk a bit (maybe 7-20 minutes) and go down some steps at the end of the Fulkunananagatan?? road (some hard to say road name) and then you'll find the street (get a map or google map it so you get oriented). There is also a grocery that is near the McDonalds on the "Fulkugagagtan" street where you can buy essentials. I also saw a Catholic Church near the steps which I attended and it was interesting to have communion in Swedish. Overall, a nice hotel to stay for a few days in Stockholm and just get a room with a window for maybe $20 more if that really bothers you.

    Alexandra - Good budget hotel on Södermalm

    by

    Alexandra is a good, but basic 3-star hotel situated in a largely residential area in the middle of Södermalm. It is clean, comfortable and functional. Quite adequate and acceptable, but rather bland and ordinary - there is little more that can be said about this hotel. The room was a reasonable size (for Scandinavia), and nicely furnished. The breakfast room is windowless and rather stuffy. The staff are efficient but not particularly welcoming.

    In short, don't stay here if you want a nice romantic weekend, but if all you need is somewhere safe, clean and comfortable to spend the night - this is fine. The rack rates are not that cheap, and there are much nicer hotels in Stockholm for a similar price, but if you can get a good deal through an on-line booking agency it is worth considering.

    Directions: If you are coming from Central Station, it is best to get a suburban train to Stockholm Södra, turn right onto Swedenborgsgatan and walk two blocks to Magnus Ladulåsgatan. Turn left and the hotel is on the other side of the street.

    HUMANE WAREHOUSE

    by

    When I wanted to travel to Stockholm for a VT Meeting, I wanted 3 things in a hotel: Inexpensive, comfortable, and well located. The Alexandra Hotel met all 3! At first glance it looks like a Human Warehouse inside, and it kind of is. The rooms may be small, but they are clean, efficient and the beds are so comfortable you will not want to get up in the morning, even though they make a fantastic breakfast. The staff are very friendly and helpful. When I had a noisy neighbour, the staff took action immediately. The Old Town (Gamla Stan) is either a quick 2 stops away on the Metro or an easy slightly downhill walk. By Stockholm standards the hotel is also cheap. My room was so small it did not even have a window (please see pictures). A complete joy to stay at.

    So a few facts:

    Location:
    Around the corner for from Medborgarplatsen Station on the Tunnelbana (Underground).Stockholm Transportation
