      Historical Traveler Reviews Elite Hotel Adlon Stockholm

      Amazing hotel.


      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


      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.

      Great Location!


      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.

      Good value


      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.

      Hi everyone! I am Stockholm now. I was originally going to come here on the 25th and fly back to the US on the 30th, but decided to come here early. Thailand was getting very stuffy, travels becoming self-indulgent, and I am having to make some important decisions with Christoffer regarding what we had planned for the road trip. It is the second time I have ever deviated from my original travel plans.  The first time ...

      It started flurrying in the early afternoon today! Like really coming down, floating a bit before turning into mush on the pavement. I stayed in as to not slip and fall. Then I hung out with some guests and stayed in the sauna for like an hour because it was malfunctioning but we were having a good time anyway! No picture of the snow in front of the hostel since my phone is still dead (I did buy an adapter though, so my computer is working!), but Anneli sent me some ...

So as a result coffee and muffins have been on the agenda most days. People generally look very fit and athletic, with every second person wearing runners. They are very elegantly dressed, lots of black. I didn't shop much,well not at all. I bought a couple of tea towels! But I could have had we the time and ...

      ... stop at the grocery store on our way into town. A little pasta, bread and cheese in the hostel kitchen saved us some cash. I was even able to get a beer. It was the only one with no English on it (did you know they have Brooklyn Lager here?) which made it interesting. Unfortunately interesting doesn't mean good. Chelsea's instant reaction of disgust after taking a sip was pretty priceless :) We still haven't figured this out yet but when we walked in the door my bed was made and ...
