Karolinska visit

Would recommend Fri, Aug 28, 2015
At one point nobody was at reception to hand me my old style metal key (upon return from a jog). Had to wait ~5 min for someone to turn up. Now they have just switched to magnetic keys, so should not be an issue in the future.

Always wanted to stay in the Gamla Stan and this was a perfect fit... close to the sights, the underground and more. Breakfast was superb.

Great Old Town Hotel

Would recommend Mon, Sep 2, 2013
Right in the heart of the action, friendly staff and outstanding breakfast. Perfect spot to see Stockholm, especially if on foot. Room was small, as per other reviews, but it was perfect if you are spending most of your time exploring,

Excellent sight-seeing setting

Would recommend Sun, Sep 1, 2013
The hotel is literally just steps away from the subway station and only one stop to the main rail station in Stockholm. It was perfect for walking tours of Gamla Stan, and there are many sights and restaurants/cafes nearby. Breakfast was excellent. The only complain was the in-room wi/fi signal was not very strong. In the lobby it was fine though. I would stay there again.

Charming hotel with a few qualifications.

Would recommend Sun, Jun 9, 2013
The decor is lovely and the staff could not be nicer. The breakfast buffet is one of the best we've ever had. The qualifications are in the summer when windows are open, it is very noisy at night. Also, we found the bed too soft; that is an individual preference, however.

Really a perfect family vacation

Would recommend Wed, Apr 3, 2013
My husband and I booked 2 nights here, before our sons were to join us from Seattle. After looking at facilities around the city we decided to extend our stay here and get an extra room for our kids. The Hotel Rica did an amazing and seemless job of working out all my reservations, we stayed in the same room all 4 nights and they placed our boys in the room directly across the hall. We loved our rooms. We loved the breakfast and breakfast room. Healthy, nice variety of items and thoughtfully done. The staff in the breakfast room, and throughout the Hotel, were helpful and friendly. There isn't a better location to stay in Stockholm. We walked to the shopping street and Ice Bar. Visited Djurgarden and Skeppsholmen as well. Took a boat tour. Did a nice walking tour of Gamla Stan and then decided to just hang out in Gamla Stan, eating on Stortorget at the Grillska Huset and Chokladkoppen. We also all enjoyed shopping Gamla Stan. Lovely, comfortable and happy trip.

Attractions

We used the Rick Steves tour guide and found the most helpful travel hints, some that were incredibily detailed, about sight seeing, shopping, hotels and dining.

Great Breakfast, Too Expensive Hotel Rate

Would not recommend Sat, Nov 24, 2012
The hotel is good in terms of its location and breakfast. Staff is very friendly but I believe that based on the price per night the rooms are rather small. Otherwise it was a good stay.

Quiet as a morgue

Would recommend Thu, Nov 15, 2012
It's in a good location - as long as they're not digging up the road as they were when I was there. Don't expect a lively, bustle of activity - there isn't one. It's for sleeping ... and breakfast (which was really quite good.) A lovely old-fashioned building - reasonably comfortable and good value in a city that is eye-wateringly expensive.
