Historical Traveler Reviews Elite Hotel Adlon Stockholm
Amazing hotel. Incredibly friendly staff. We had a corner room, which had a separate area with a sofa and desk, as well as a good sized room and comfortable bed.
Ideally located for the train station (3 mins walk).
And what must be the smallest lift in Skandinavia!! :)
I will certainly book here when we next go to Stockholm!
Great place to stay
We chose this hotel based on Travel Advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. The lobby of the hotel was not as charming as expected, but our room was very nice, very clean, with a newly-renovated bathroom. We were on the first floor, which apparently is the most recently renovated portion of the hotel. Our room was deemed a 'mini-suite' but that basically meant that it was reasonable in size and included a small loveseat along with our two single beds and a desk. Free high speed internet service in the room was a welcome touch! The hotel does not have a restaurant, but the breakfast buffet served in the small breakfast room was really nice and offered ample selections of quality food presented attractively. The hotel is super convenient to the train station, and the high-speed airport train, but the trade-off is that the neighborhood is not the best. But you only need to walk a few short blocks to find better restaurants and so forth. I would certainly consider staying here again, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet, clean, non-trendy hotel experience in Stockholm.
Great little hotel
It's near the main rail and bus station, which normally means "Avoid like the plague" - but this place is really rather good. It's amongst the cheapest hotels you'll find in Stockholm in summer (apart from youth hostels and the like), and the rooms are more than good enough. OK, so the rooms aren't huge, but for this kind of money, you can't expect a 5-room suite. Very helpful staff, and Internet access is free to boot
What a find!
Thank you to Tripadvisor for introducing me to the Adlon! We had a friend in Norway guide us on our Norway hotels, but we were on our own for booking our 2 nights in Stockholm. We chose the Adlon based primarily on based on the Tripadvisor reviews, and its location relative to the train station, and we hit a home run. This is a charming, quiet, immaculately kept hotel with really great service. The breakfast buffet was the best we had during our whole tour. A bit far from the city center (20-40 minute walk), but only a block from the airport train and other trains/buses. This is a 4-star quality hotel. We'll head right back there on our next trip to Stockholm.
My Favotite Stockholm Hotel
This was one of three different hotels my husband and I stayed in during a visit to Stockholm in October 2004, and it was by far our favorite. It is very conveniently located, simply walk out the front of the Central Train Station (where both the Arlanda Express train and bus service from the airport stop), cross the street, turn left, and the hotel is about 2 blocks down the street. We arrived around 10 am after an overnight flight from Boston, and were allowed to immediately check into our room.
We had a mini suite on the top floor, which consisted of a small sitting room with a love seat and a tv, a nice clean bathroom with a shower, heated towel racks (great for drying clothes!) and a powerful hand held hair dryer, and a large bedroom with two twin beds, two chairs, a dresser and a tv and a great view of the street below. You could actually open the windows if you wanted fresh air. There was also a mini refrigerator. The tv got lots of American tv shows and there was free, high speed internet access in the room, as well as a computer with internet access in the hotel lobby for guest use.
A breakfast buffet was included in our room price (be sure and get a room with this option), which had a typical European selection of meats, cheeses, fish, breads, fruits, granolas, etc.
Be warned that the elevator is TINY, with room for only about 2 people with luggage. If you are a very large person, you will be stuck with climbing the stairs.
The staff were all helpful and friendly. I highly recommend this charming hotel.
Great location in Stockholm
Couldn't fault this hotel during a recent two night stay. Nicely proportioned room. Modern bathroom - with heated floor - keeps your toes toasty. Decent shower. Comfy bed (though not as comfy as a 'Heavenly' Westin bed). Fabulous, free broadband internet in the room via ethernet network. If you don't have your own laptop then there's a free terminal in reception. Location excellent - a few minutes walk from the Arlanda Express platforms and main station. Great hotel if you need to be at Stockholm International Fairs for a congress - it's 9 minutes on the Pendeltag from the main station. Also handy for Gamla Stan (old town) and shopping. Metro stop (T-Centralen) just down the street - so the whole of Stockholm is within easy reach.
Good hotel, very clean, modern bathroom. Close to main train and bus station and city center. Quite room. Breakfast a bit skimpy and room a bit small, but a good deal for this city. High speed internet access a big plus.
The Adlon offers a tremendous location, within a few minutes walk of both the old town and the main bus/train station.
Its location gave us the opportunity to do a lot of sightseeing in a short period of time. Plus, there are many places to eat within a 10-minute walk (we felt safe walking at night), and many more in the Old Town area, which is slightly further away, but still a comfortable and scenic walk.
There's also a subway stop nearby that will take you to the outer reaches of Stockholm (although on the pricey side, your best bet is to buy a Stockholm city card. Besides including admission to most of the things worth seeing in Stockholm, it also includes unlimited use of the subway and bus system).
The rooms are on somewhat on the small side by American standards, although by European standards they're slightly larger than average (their size is partially compensated by high ceilings). There are three room sizes, and ours was the middle option. The rooms were immaculate, especially the bathrooms (no tubs), which have heated floors. They included a small 'fridge, cable tv (most channels in English) and complimentary internet access (there's also a public access computer in the lobby), plus the windows open and are well insulated against noise. The mattresses are very slim, and not recommended for those with back problems. Except for one person, the staff were generally attentive.
A buffet breakfast is included. However, it (and the mattresses) are the reason we aren't giving the Adlon five stars. We stayed there three days and the breakfast offerings lessened each day. Plus we found the variety of items extremely limited, especially by German standards. But there's always the Burger King across the street.
All in all, though, we felt we got our money's worth, especially as we found a great internet deal for three nights that averaged out to $120 (total) per night for two people. Nothing fancy, but well-above average.
I have stayed at Adlon three times in 2004 and every time has been enjoyable.
While the rooms are small, which is to be expected in Europe, they are nicely furnished. The hotel seems to cater to the business traveler, and they do provide free high speed web access thru an ethernet connection. That is fantastic, if you have ever had dial-up problems with your ISP.
The morning breakfast buffet is quite nice, the staff is exceedingly friendly, and the location is excellent.
You can walk to any place in central Stockholm from their location which is about a 2 min walk from the train station.
Bottom line...a good place, a fair price, nice people, and a central location. When I go back, I will try to stay there.
Very good location in the city centre. Just across the street to the Arlanda Express train to Stockholm International Airport. Free Internet access through the hotels network in all rooms.

... gimormous cruiseships and when our tour guide said everyone was on town for THE wedding we innocently said what wedding...and he was off again....Prince Carl Michael was to marry Sophie, a commoner and the town was abuzz. Big deal sez us kiwis...we dont do royalty!! FINALLY...we reached the apartment and it is lovely. A two story, in a set of 5, set on the street with a small garden at the front and a big common gardened area at the back we jumbled in and set ourselves up quickly. ...
... hand watching the harbour scene in the glorious sunshine.
We awoke to yep you guessed it more rain so we waited before heading off into town. Stockholm is spread over various islands and knees and feet won't allow us to cover it all so we opted for the nearest and the oldest part of town..Gamla Stan. The Royal Palace, Royal Chapel, German Church and quaint cobbled streets full of tourist traps.
One station had a very weird apocalyptic style photo art mural the length of the platform.
The museum was free today for ...
... with my roommate. She showed me all these cute stuff she got from Myrorna, the chain store for thrift shopping that I went to the other day. She went to a different location, so it was either that store had better items or she has a sharp eye.. but she got so many cute things! I showed her the dress I got from H&M and we totally girl'ed out together. Haha it was great. Now I'm practicing Swedish with Christoffer over Skype. I'm getting pretty good at ...
... amazing tapas in old town. What a beautiful city and a beautiful day. We may have been sore from all that walking, but it was amazing.
Note* H&M was started in Sweden. We saw multiple H&M stores in the city, close and far away, so it was not wise to rely off of H&M for your bearings. If you do you WILL get lost. We didn't, but I would have if I was on my own!
Another full day of Stockholm tomorrow!
