Great Location! Good hotel!

This hotel is centrally situated in Stockholm and is close to excellent shopping, restaurants, and attractions. The Hop-on, Hop-off Bus service has a stop about 5 minutes away, and the local bus and tram service is close as well. The buffet breakfast was plentiful and delicious. Their restaurant-Ming-was closed while we were there, but looked like it had a good variety of Chinese food. Try and stay in the "tower" rooms--Room 603 offered a good view of the streets below. The hotel was very clean and comfortable and the staff were all very friendly and helpful.

Reasonable hotel

Good location but the room itself was rather small and tired. Some re-decoration and brighter lighting would make a difference but it was clean and sufficient for a city break. On the plus side Fast, free wi-fi a bonus and the restaurant attached supplied a good breakfast and reasonably priced meals (compared to the rest of the restaurants in this part of Stockholm!).

Lovely Historic Hotel

For being over 100 years old, this Victorian building is holding up well under modernization. Because this is a historic hotel the owners were limited to what changes they could make to the building. The elevator has been SQUEEZED into the old stairwell, so it's super tiny. Clearly the hotel has seen a fare amount of wear and tear and could use an update, but for the money and the location, this was areal find. The rooms are very small, like you'd expect to find across Europe, but are still lovely and very clean. Speaking of location, the hotel is located on one of the main streets in Stockholm, in the summer, the locals party WAY into the early hours, because of the extra light. So, expect some noise and was insulated as would have been expected against noise a 100 years ago. It's a stones throw from the #2 bus stop into Glama Stan, the old city and an underground station is a short walk. So, the location is perfect for sightseeing. We were spending an extra day in Stockholm before a Baltic cruise. Again, the bus service was a great option. The #1 bus takes you right to the docks, at the fraction of the cost of a cab ride. The buffet breakfast is also very lovely. Since the hotel caters to international travelers you'll find a wide offering of breakfast foods. It's all very fresh and is convenient for a grab and run casual breakfast. My only complains are: The hotel really could stand an update, but was very clean. The bed was remarkably large, but the linens were for twin beds, my husband and I spoon when we sleep, so no spooning. We'd stay there again. If you're expecting the amenities you'd get from a high end hotel, in the States. Then you need to stay in one of their branded hotels, but if you want to be closer to the pulse of Stockholm, easy access to transportation, love old architecture, all at a reasonable rate, the Crystal Plaza Hotel is a great option.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

Do use the Hop-On-Hop-Off tour bus and boats. They will take you to all of the best sights and the commentaries are well done. Best bargin for your money.

"Beat expectations"

We were welcomed at the hotel by a friendly man at the front desk who informed us that we had been upgraded to a much better room at no additional cost. He was willing to assist us in any way he could. Fine old historic hotel with recently renovated rooms. Great bar next door.

Worth it after we switched rooms

When we first got to the hotel we were put in one of the older rooms that was very uncomfortable and had a run down bathroom with a noisy toilet. The hotel staff was very nice and put us in a newly renovated room. Our new room was small but everything was new and the bathrooms were clean. If you're looking for comfortable/cozy beds, this isn't the place for you but if you're looking for a place to sleep, at a reasonable price, thats close enough to the T and city, Crystal Plaza is worth it. Arlanda Express (airport transportation) is about a 20 walk to and from the hotel.

nice sauna

the location wasn't as good as another on i stayed at in Stockholm, but it was close enough to walk pretty much everywhere (about 25 minutes to the Central Station, same to Sodermalm). our room was quite large, with a nice big clean bathroom, wood floors, comfy bed, lots of tv channels. we were on the first floor and there seemed to be a lot of street noise. the heavy curtains helped block out the light. for me the best part was the sauna, which you reserve and use privately for free.
