Recent guest reviews
The stay in the hotel was very good. The rooms are nice and clean, the staff is friendly and the hotel is situated on a convenient location. As a bonus i love the soft throws on the beds The breakfast provides a wide selection so there is something nice for everyone.
This is a good hotel at the city center, 10 minutes walking from Arlanda Express terminal and Central Station. The rooms are correct, the breakfast very good, the lobby has a lot of animation full of people socializing at any time. I also got white asparagus at lunch time which were really great. Price is reasonable and service is good.
Decided to choose Clarion Hotel Amaranten for a weekend in Stockholm, mainly due to the excellent location. Just next to the hotel is a tube station, hotel is in the city and just 15 min walk away from the city centre and the old town. We chose a small double room which is a very reasonably priced option for a short stay for a couple, for a longer stay probably bit too small though. I arrived earlier than my boyfriend but a staff member in reception was friendly, found our booking and I was able to leave my luggage to the hotel lobby as the room was ready just by 5 p.m surprisingly late to be honest but as I wasn't in a hurry it was ok. Room was very clean, modern and cosy. When we went down late in the evening then the other staff member was working in the reception, he wasn't the most professional one though or there was a slight language problem, he's English wasn't too good to understand the simple question if there's a food available still as it was 11 p.m. There were a salmon sandwich and a cesar salad available. Downstairs is a very nice and obviously very popular trendy coctail bar/lounge called Tap Room and if you walk further then there's a lovely restaurant Table&Kitchen, a very convenient solutions for a hotel guests to have a meal or just a few drinks. Breakfast was ok, although the staff could have been bit more active with filling the dishes with a food, always was something finished, also the cleaningness coukd have been on a bit higher level. Surprise was when we checked out and a young lad in the reception said after we told our room number that our bill is all sorted out? How come as we haven't paid yet? We asked him to double check and then he admitted to have made a mistake, not too professional again. In general I definately would recommend Clarion Hotel Amaranten, just double check all your bills and be aware that the staff may not be on a highest professional level. Also the hotel seems to be popular, so book your stay in advance for sure.
The experience was much much much better this time, specially delighted with the attention from all the staff at the desk and the restaurant and everywhere. Nice reception after the renovation :) I leave the 5 stars for next time when the bathroom is more cared, the rest 10/10 :) But what is sure is that I'll come back next time, no more Stockholm hotels search and test like last year. And will recommend to colleagues! Thanks!!!
The hotel was well located withing walking distance of the Central station and therefore we could walk to any "touristy" place in the city. The "small standard room" was really small, but I was told that Nordics have small hotel rooms, and with a city like Stockholm you should be spending minimum time in the room anyway. The breakfast was very god quality, with a great assortment of fresh breads and croissants, eggs made to order, warm and cold dishes. I would recommend this place!
Nice staff and facility but they forgot to put the document to order breakfast in the bedroom, they also forgot to tidy up the breakfast platter which was still in the bedroom at 5pm... otherwise nice hotel well located in Stockholm.
The room was tidy and clean, but there where no power outlet in the bathroom, airconditioning did not work at all, and you could actually hear noises from the bar in the bathroom, and we lived at the 3 floor. The breakfast was unorganized, and the staff did not manage to re-fill the different stations quick enough. We ordered roomservice one evening and It was beyond bad. 2 chicken salads served cold, the meat was like rubber and the salad was not even washed.
This hotel has transformed to a Clarion hotel. Our room was nicely decorated. But already som things hanged lose. Air-condition lever on the wall did not work at all (yes hanged loose, look like a fake thing..) Usually very friendly staff at Clarion. When checking in she was not very friendly at all,she was snotty.. Breakfast was very good. No cappuccino machine only ordinary coffee. Very good location in a friendly neighborhood very close to downtown Stockholm.
Large hotel close to central station. Room very quiet for such a large establishment. Room was clean and comfortable but oddly whilst a kettle was present no tea, sugar or milk, fine if you like black coffee. Breakfast is a buffet with a great variety of good, quality food, eat what you like, but gets VERY busy at certain times, so finding a seat can be difficult. Hotel is close to the Blue tube line with access to the harbour at Strömkajen, with boats to other islands, and a jaunt to Gamla Stan, is only a 10 minute tube ride away. The staff are most helpful and, as one would expect, have better English than most English people. Highly recommended!
I highly recommend this hotel. There is nothing negative about it. Good location and good value. Prose: Breakfast:It is good. Reasonable different variety of items. Staff: Very friendly and welcoming. As expected in Stockholm all staff speak English very well. Location: Is perfect. The metro station is beside the hotel. You can reach Gamla Stan and city center on foot in 20 minutes. Very close to Central Station, 10-15 minutes walking. I reach the Central station by Arlanda express then walked to hotel Clarion Amaranten. Bar & restaurant: The hotel has bar and a restaurant. The bar was good. We did not eat in restaurant. Cleanliness: Clean room and hotel. There is no issue. Our room was on 5th floor. Good size with a double bed. For us bed was a little soft. Not a big deal. We were a couple stayed for a week in mid April 2017. We will stay again.
