Great Location

Overall a good stay for a one-night business trip. I felt that the check in/out procedure was a little time consuming. Everything was prepaid checking in but it still took about 10 minutes to get our room key and when we checked out there was a long line for 9:30am and that was with 4 staff members working and a supervisor overtop. It was pricy but a nice hotel as well.

Clean, modern comfort in the city

My husband was in town for a business trip, and I decided to tag along. Our first night was at the Grand Hotel. The room, which was quite small, was more classic in design and more expensive. The Grand was great for location, location, location and the hotel's incredible restaurant, Matbaren. Radisson Blu was half the cost and the rooms, the shower, the view of the water, etc., felt cleaner, more accessible and the staff was very helpful. When asked for a 13:30 checkout, they gave us a 14:00 checkout. The location is about a 15 minute walk to the palace, docks for boat rides to Stockholm, the Archipelago, etc. Radisson Blu Waterfront blu is by city hall and shopping and next door to train station if you plan to take the express to Arlanda.

Ask if your rate includes breakfast. Although there was no mention of breakfast, fortunately, the front desk informed me that breakfast would be included with our rate.

Great for an overnighter

We needed a hotel for a night before getting onto a cruise and this was perfect. Took the train in from the airport and it was right next to it near the water. It's near the pedestrian street great for restaurants and shopping. Amazing breakfast included the next morning plus free Wi-Fi, One downside was the bathroom was a bit small with the semi-open shower only setup but again, it was just for one night.

Good location but that's about it...

Stayed late July for 3 nights during the heat wave. Hotel was undergoing several remodel projects (stripping wood floors in lobby area and re-staining; fumes were unpleasant). Two elevators out of four were out of order. Bar and restaurant were closed off intermittently due to remodel work; strange for a hotel that is relatively new. Air conditioning was poor and room was warm and stuffy, but heard that was typical at other hotels in the area as well. Location was pretty good near Central T station and express train to/from airport and also close to City Hall and waterfront. Amenities were mediocre and had to make special requests to get shower gel and soap restocked. Restaurant food was okay. Checked out breakfast buffet but didn't look so great so skipped.

Liked it better 2 years ago...

I stayed at this hotel 2 years ago and had fond memories of the location and room and decided to return this year for two nights. The staff decided to put me in a handicap accessible room withOUT asking me first. Honestly, I typically don't mind it too much. But for someone who happens to be 6'4 it is not ideal. Also, I was on vacation and had chosen this hotel as a treat to my partner and myself. Having traveled and toured all day, we decided to keep the room and complain about it later. Maybe we should have changed rooms because a day later a cut my head on a sharp low corner beside the bed when I leaned over to put something on the nightstand. The rooms are not really designed for tall people. Fortunately, the wound was not deep enough to require stitches. Strike two occurred when the breakfast that was supposed to be served until 11, stopped an hour earlier the next morning. Probably due to the inconvenient construction and floor polishing that was shutting down half the elevators. Strike number three occurred when there were not enough bicycles for the guests that were at the hotel. I realize that this sometimes happens. But it was just the icing on the cake for us. When we asked for a suggestion on biking rentals, they suggested the city-bike program which really is not ideal. The downtown area does not have many of those bikes available. So we finally found a great bike rental place outside of Djurgarden that had great bikes at a decent price. After my second visit to Stockholm, I think I will try the Sheraton that is on the cusp of Old Town on our next visit. For the price paid, I think I would get a better value somewhere else.

Next to train station with great views of city

We actually though we were books into the Radisson on the other side of the main train station (the Viking) but did not regret the mistake even though the Viking is also excellent. This one is just as good, and had a slightly larger room for us and an incredible view of the water and City Hall - nearly midnight sun and all! Great breakfast, responsive staff but be warned, they take humungous group tours who arrive and sometimes take over check in and out since thr foyer is a bit on the small size - thank goodness for express check out. Both these Radissons are excellent and not having to pay for a taxi from the station with luggage (you just roll the cases 5 minutes from the train platforms) should be factored into the price you are prepared to pay. These are excellent value.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Don't forget to take the boat rides in Stockholm to Drottningholm Palace or anywhere actually - they are just a short walk away from the hotel. You can't get lost in Stockholm - locals probably speak better English than you do and in the summer are very helpful and relaxed. It's a great place to visit!

Good hotel for good value

We had a nice stay in Stockholm, the staff at the front desk was very helpful. The only critic is the bar at night. The bartender was obviously not a professional or somebody with knowledge how to host guests. He didn't know anything about the beverages, forgot to serve, forgot to give a glass and without a warning at closed the bar at 11 pm, handing out the bills. (Though during the day there was a friendly and competent bar staff).

Maybe 3 stars by U.S. standards

Maybe good for a business trip; close to train station. Good buffet breakfast to try just once but the restaurant food/room service is nothing interesting. Below standard housekeeping.
