Great location

This was a cute hotel with a great location. The room was nothing fancy, but it was spacious enough compared to other European hotels. Just remember it has no A/C, which can mean your little room is like an oven during the unusually warm summer days they've been having.

Great location but staff not pleasent

Our stay at the First Riesen was nice. The breakfast buffet in the morning was absolutely wonderful. I would stay here again just for the breakfast. The staff at the bar/restaurant were not very pleasent. They were not welcoming and during a evening stop in the bar for a nightcap they did not even come to wait on us. They did wait other tables but not ours. The drinks are very expensive. If you are looking to just have a drink go somewhere else. A larger bar soap would be nice, also the rooms could use some TLC. Other than that it is a great location to get to other restaurants, shops and transportation.

Great Business Hotel - Ask for larger Rooms on 3rd Floor

Great Location, Very nice staff, wonderful breakfast, OK workout room, and amazing Sauna and Cold Dunk Bath! Most rooms are a bit small, just space for a bed and table. Having said that, the front facing rooms which are a little more expensive, look over the river and are really fantastic because of the view. If you are not staying in a front facing room, ask for a larger room on the 3rd floor. These are much nicer than most of the small side facing rooms and the same price. I would stay there again, but stay in either the larger room or the front facing room.

Great Swedish Restaurant out front door to right. At second alley take a right and it is at the end of that street on the right. A little expensive, but great food.

Well appointed, well located

I have nothing but praise for this hotel. Steps away from the bus line that can connect you to the subway/train lines to go anywhere in the city and its suburbs. Pleasant, helpful staff. Clean. beautiful views from the waterview rooms. Breakfast buffet is bounteous. We ate in the restaurant in the evening, were pleased.

Buy a multi-ticket transportation pass to use the busses and trains. Can't buy on bus, so good to be at a Tobac store in advance. Cheaper in multiples. Taxis are incredibly expensive!

Quick weekend in Stockholm

We stayed at the First Hotel Reisen a few days ago. It happened to have been during the Stockholm Triathlon, but getting to and from the hotel was convenient. Great breakfast spread and the lobby bar had some good, fancy drinks.

Very European

Desk personnel fabulous. Location in the Old town across from river, 2 blocks from the Palace was great. Room comfortable but very small. Large breakfast provided. Neat pool and sauna in sub basement in vaulted room but cold (67 degrees).

Perfect location!

Centralized location in Old Town is perfect as a homebase for sight-seeing. Lovely breakfast buffet, helpful staff. Cozy rooms on the small size for americans, but very clean. Upgraded from an alley-view to a water-view which was beautiful & worth it for us. Street noise wasn't too bad and bar is noisy on weekends, so request 4th floor or higher. Overall, highly recommended and wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

Dinner prices in restaurants tend to be very expensive, so LOAD up at the breakfast buffet and have a hearty lunch to keep you going throughout the day. You'll need it for all the walking anyway.
