Clarion Hotel Amaranten

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Modern hotel with excellent rooms and very professional staff. Situated at Kongsholmen, just a short walk from the Central Station and in reasonable walking range from Gamla Stan, Djurgården and the sightseeing boats by the seaside. The breakfast area and the elevators were a bit overcrowded but being in the middle of the summer holiday that's not unusual in many hotels i will definitely recomend this hotel to anyone going to Stockholm.

Nice beds quiet rooms, breakfast was overcrowded noisy, loud music bright lights. Breakfast buffe was sub standard. Managed to get the music lowered after receptionist told me to look for breakfast personel. Just what I want to do at 7am on a Sunday!

Firstly as we all know, the photos and the reality are two different things, and that was evident with Hotel Amaranten as well. Rooms were dirty, smelled like mold and are really cold. Wind blows through the windows and headache was constant. After complaining about the issues we were having, the response from the reception was non-existent. And after complaining yet again in the morning, they promised to change our room for better for the evening. However after we came back later, this promise was accidentally forgotten. This pretty much proves that this place couldn't really care less about customers problems. Breakfast was really busy, no matter what time you went. Bread was OK, but ever else was poor, so don't pay extra for it. Location was convenient, and that is why I'll give two stars. If Amaranten is the standard quality of Clarion hotels, I can safely say that you'll get easily better value for money from elsewhere. Almost 200€ for night is way too expensive.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Clean rooms and comfortable beds. Yummy breakfast with fresh food and strong coffee. A bit noisy and crowded though in the breakfast area. Location is great and a short walk (10min) to T centralen.

The service was good, the breakfast fine, the room (superior room) was small, but what I didn´t like was that I was repeatedly reminded of Buddha! In the bathroom, at the reception etc. I would have liked to see the New testament by the bed as in many other hotels in Sweden.

I stayed at this hotel about 10 years ago and it was really bad. Now it is refurbicated and really nice, including the personnel. I really thank you for a nice stay. I suppose the breakfast was good but I was to late for it.

I spent in Clarion Hotel Amaranten more than 30 days and was in two room types so I will drop few general comments here. Hotel is settled almost in central Stockholm. Connection with everything is really close and Tube is in under ground of same building where hotel is. Stockholm central station is one stop away of few minutes by walking and from there you can get wherever you want. Breakfast is rich with really plenty of choices (waffle machines, egg ordering...). Lets say that room is classic. Double bed with sofa, no safe box. Nice thing is vouchers you get to be send in hotel bar or restaurant. For 1-5 night you are Blue member and you get 35 SEK vouchers per day. 5-30 nigh Sliver member 75 SEK per day, 31-60 Gold 125 SEK per day. For 125 SEK you can get two drinks or eat something light. Food in restaurant is very fine (great hamburger and Black forest pizza with Tartuffe). There is lack of accessories like table pool, ping-pong which much cheaper hotels in Stockholm has. Cleanliness is not better part of hotel. It occurred few times that couple days in a role passed by till my room was vacuumed clean. Also used glass on my desk was not washed up few times, bath not cleaned, blanket left thrown on floor or sofa... Strangely was that in a room was only two working power inlets. Other had banded metal pins so no way you could use them. Otherwise there is big people flow in hotel. Elevator stops in every floor so lots of people uses stairs although there is three elevators. Guys on reception are fine and polite and will help you with any request.

Hotel is located in a walking distance from the central bus and train station and aroun 15 min from Gamla stan. It has clean rooms and quite nice breakfasylt as you can make your own omelet and waffle. A nice hotel overall

I visited the hotel with my cousin for a weekend break. We found the hotel to be clean and in a nice quiet location, within walking distance of the main city. When we arrived the male receptionist barely greeted us, and made no effort to give us any information about the hotel or where to go. Our room was nice, and the beds were super comfy. Our only gripe is that the door to the bathroom is glass and there is no toilet door so you feel a bit exposed. The room was cleaned daily, and was nice and warm. There is a lovely cocktail bar which serves amazing cocktails. I recommend the Apollo 11 cocktail which has marshmallow in it. Delicious. The ambience is chilled and it gets busy. The bar staff are really good, and are friendly and efficient. The prices are steep but that appears to be the case for the whole of Stockholm.

Great hotel, close to the center, awesome staff. And breakfasts.... so much choice! I've stayed in Amaranten for two weeks in October fast checkin/checkout. Very close to center, you simply cross the river and you are at the central station.
