Great Accommodation Location

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 29, 2014

We stayed at the Freys Hotel – only 100m from the Arlanda Express / Stockholm Central station (see the photo from our 6th floor room. The Arlanda express is at the end of the street). It could not have been closer. The hotel room was comfortable and well equipped. A roll-out bed was added and there was still lots of room for three adults. Breakfast was excellent – the usual array of cereals, fresh breads, continental meats and cooked offerings. Breakfast was included in the room rate ($163/day – Dec 2014) and was perhaps the highlight of our stay. There is a sauna in the basement which guests can book to use. It was well equipped with a nice lounge area though, somewhat surprisingly, there were no cups or glasses available even though there was a sink. Rather important for a sauna. The sauna can easily accommodate 8 people though the front staff stressed bookings were “private” – ie. it seemed one couple at a time. Such a waste.

Our son arrived early and the reception staff were not at all interested in helping him get into the room sooner than the allotted 3 pm check-in time. This, plus a total lack of response when we tried to contact the hotel by e-mail a few days earlier, took the shine of what is a good hotel in a great location.

I really liked staying at Freys Hotel. Staff was very helpful and rooms were very cute and nicely furnished. Breakfast buffet was also very good!

Unique Quality: Very good location just next to Central Station and very helpful staff.

Directions: 2 minutes walk from Central Station.

I have stayed at this hotel on several occassions now, seeing it go through an upgrade a few years back. The hotel in question is central for everything, and is a 5 minute walk from the central train station. However if you take the airport train to the centre, it is even closer - try direct across the road!

Wonderful service from all the staff, rooms are serviced daily and there is an excellent choice on the buffet breakfast.

Being central for the station means it is ideal for touring all the sites. The main shopping area of Stockholm is a 5 minute walk away.

I took my friend to this hotel for the first time this year after years of her staying in a youth hostel, she was not dissappointed and is planning a return stay very soon!

Unique Quality: Wide open area in reception ideal for disabled visitors, with automatic doors.

Two lifts in reception

Showers are walk in, in all the bedrooms

Sauna

Ice machine

TV in all rooms, PPV movies

24 hours reception

Rooms serviced daily

Free internet access in lobby

Internet access in rooms (local charges apply)

Bar

Mini bar in room

Directions: 5 - 10 minute walk from central station, 3 -5 minute walk from arrival of Arlanda Express train (station is direct across the road).

On our all too brief trip to Stockholm, Petra and I stayed in the Freys Hotel. It was very conveniently situated just over the road a bit from Central Station - so not too far to lug the bags, but we didn't over do the "stuff" this time so keeping the baggage to a minimum. The hotel staff were really helpful and friendly and the hotel was quite swish compared to what we are used to!
Breakfast was enormous - everything you could imagine from the best continental breakfast. The other guests were quite friendly too - not used to such cheeryness first thing in the morning!! Takes me to mid-morning usually to get beyong a grunt.

Yes, the hotel.... all mod cons as you would expect from a "quality" hotel - little cyber-cafe downstairs - if you feel the need while you are on holiday - which of course we would NEVER do! :-p All the usual stuff in the room, hairdryer, tv, mini-kitchenette thing in a cupboard and a trouser press. Our room was ensuite. Oh and watch the door locks - some visitors to Scandinavia seem to have problems with them from time to time :)
The only disadvantage was the view from the window - just another dull building opposite.

Unique Quality: I can't think of anything that makes this hotel particularly unique - only that it's in Stockholm and I had never been there before!

Directions: Go left out of Central Station and cross the main road, Bryggagarten is 2nd on the right (its a narrow street and easily missed!)

Since I live here I am really...

by written on September 12, 2002

Since I live here I am really bad at recomending cheap places to sleep at!! I just know that the hotels are really expensive!! I do have got some recomendations, Freys Hotel at Wasagatan, close to the Centralstation and Oden Hotel at Odenplan. For less exclusive lodging I recommend af Chapman, a hostel at a old ship.. Really popular, so it could be better to book in advance (136 beds). The af Chapman is built 1888 in England.

Another nice hotels are the Scandic's. There is several different types spread around the city and it's suburbs. Visit http://www.scandic-hotels.com/default.asp
Differ from a hundred to several hundreds!

Unique Quality: Well, it's unique enough to sleep on a boat?

Directions: Oden hotel, the subway to station Odenplan, located at Karlbergsvägen; Freys Hotel close to the Central Station at Vasagatan; af Chapman, the subway to Kungsträdgården or buss nr 6
