Hotel J

Myself and my partner have stayed here three times now as we absolutely love it! We don't normally return to the same hotel when booking a holiday but this place just keeps drawing us back. It's a simple hotel, so you wouldn't necessarily call it the height of luxury, but that's not what we wanted anyway. We didn't want anywhere pretentious, just somewhere nicely decorated, cool, stylish, unique and friendly. And that's what you get with Hotel J. It's beautifully decorated and so cosy, with a log fire, wood-panelled white walls and plenty of extra stylish touches. We love the sitting room where you can sit by the fire, which the staff lit for us when we were the only ones there, and enjoy a glass of something fizzy (or a hot drink, which is definitely needed if you visit in winter!) On our most recent visit, for our birthdays, we were welcomed by a lovely man on reception who upgraded us straightaway on learning why we were on the trip. It is, of course outside of the city centre, but it's just 15 minutes on a bus straight into town or a really short boat ride which is the perfect way to see the city. The hotel is surrounded by complete silence - perfect! If you're visiting in the summer I would especially suggest staying here, rather than in the city, so you can enjoy the long warm days surrounded by nature. The ladies on reception were wonderful and friendly on our last day when we were sat in the sitting room waiting for our taxi. Oh, and it's such good value compared to many hotels in Stockholm. We'll definitely be back again if they're not fed up with us by now! :)

Brilliant little hotel with wonderful breakfast and cozy rooms. Wife and I were happy to have chosen the place. Highly recommend it. Its near enough town but removed enough that you can have some peace and quiet and still enjoy Swedens capital in style!

Great view and an oasis in the summer , convenient with boat to central Stockholm. all rooms with balcony and cool interactive beds. Great breakfast but too short opening time at weekdays. Should be extended to at least 11 am

Friends & Followers, Next time you have the chance to enjoy a weekend in Stockholm, be sure to book at the New-England-Sailing themed Hotel J on the Nacka Strand! This unique gem feels like a weekend on Martha's Vineyard, complete with nautical decor...but the best news is that it's a quick ferry ride away from the warm heart of lovely Stockholm, a city to be enjoyed and strolled through year-round. The site of the Hotel J is reminiscent of The Hamptons, and yet captures turn of the century Sweden in all its regal patina. I've had the pleasure of staying at this somewhat eccentric 'summer home to the wealthy' in 2 November's now, and the charm just doesn't wear off. Perhaps it is the phenomenally cheerful staff?, or maybe the best buffet breakfast I've seen so far across all The Nordics? Either way, I'll be back next November (for the annual eCar Expo, an annual electric car tradeshow that takes place nearby in historic old brick buildings that only mature Europe features so routinely). Great people, wonderful food, fantastic waterfront views...must see! (...and do not go cheap! Pay the water view premium, you will won't regret it). Cheers till a new adventure, - Michael

I spent one night at the Hotel J and it might be the best view of Stockholm you can get. Words cant really describe it, you have to see it. Breakfast in the towerhouse and the staff is amazing. I will for sure be back.

This hotel is a little out of central Stockholm but accessible enough by bus or boat. Staff were helpful and the lake view rooms were very nice with a beautiful view over the lake and of course the passing ferries on their way in and out of Stockholm. There's not so many restaurants round here and it's quiet in the evenings so if you're looking for plenty of things to do and choices of places to eat you will have to travel into central Stockholm for that. We didn't eat breakfast here but you have to go to another building down by the water for that. Beds were super comfortable. Downside was that there were not tea/coffee making facilities.

Location: This will depend on your purpose. Since I have visited Stockholm numerous times and did not intend to go into the city center the location was good for me. I had a car, so there was no dependency on the public transportation which I think could be an issue if the main purpose is to use this hotel as base for Stockholm city sightseeing. The hotel is located in a very quiet part and there are lots of greenery around the hotel. There is a public boat service to different archipelagos around the Stockholm area. It is about 40-60 mins away from ARN airport - depending on traffic. Check In: Arrived very late in the evening, so check in was fast. No mention or recognition of any SPG elite benefits. When asking, the associate was not sure what or if any was available. Room: The room was situated in the new building, which is situated on top of the small hill from the main building (where reception and bar/lounge room is located). Did not see any lift available, so if you have large luggage, it could be an difficult to bring them up the flight of stairs to this building. Room was located on the highest floor with a view towards the water. (I believe all rooms have this view). There was a rather large balcony area which would be perfect for a nice clear day to spend outside especially when the temperature was warmer. Seems to be that they must have given me the higest floor room as a sort of upgrade. There was a small pack of in house chocolates as a welcome gift (not sure if this is for all guests or due to my SPG status). Design is scandinavian (equals bare minimum) with lots of influence from the J-yacht used in the America's cup - Red, White and Blue. Minimalist design. Bathroom was well appointed with a walk in shower and bathtub. The size was ok and was with heated floor. Water pressure and temperature was very good. Toiletries was from Nordic Musk. Only downside of the room for me was the missing tea/coffee making facilities and very limited selection of tv channels<10 selections). Wifi was complimentary and good connection speed. Bed was good with a not too hard or soft mattress. Only minor complain is the pillows are rather small and flat, even with 2 pillows, if you like higher pillows, this would be an issue. Service: Staff in general was OK, but like most service oriented services in Sweden, did not feel the warm welcome feeling from the staff, not that they were rude, just missed that warmth feeling. Also do not expect them to be fake friendly like most US properties. Overall: In general an OK hotel, nothing more nothing less. Would I return, maybe if the price is right, but chances are small since there are not much SPG recognition and especially if the purpose is to go into the city center depending on public transportation, this could be an issue. Also there are not too many interesting places around the hotel without a car or walkable. In summer this could be a nice location but only if you are into water activities or just want a tranquil place to relax with the once in a while trip to the city or the nearby shopping mall (5-10 mins by car).

The Hotel is on the shore of a large lake, and a lot of the rooms take advantage of the wonderful view this presents. Unfortunately, to get to those rooms, it's a bit of a complicated hike along several corridors and up two lifts, with minimal directions to tell you where to go. The rooms are wonderfully quirky, with almost Victorian-style bathrooms and typically Swedish furniture. Each room has a fridge, but no tea/coffee facilities. There is a bar in the main hotel building, while the restaurant is a five minute walk down to the lakeside. The food on offer is somewhat limited - I've eaten here twice and both times, there were only 6 choices, but they did include a burger amongst the gourmet dishes. All in all, a quirky, but pleasant hotel that has earned its reputation

Stayed here for 4 nights. Had a very pleasant stay in this charming hotel. Would love to go back again, particularly in the late spring as the the setting is so nice. It’s by the water’s edge with a lovely view and Restaurant J just a short walk away at the marina. Breakfast (which we thoroughly enjoyed) is in the lovely quaint Tournvilla immediately opposite The ferry to various islands is so convenient.

This is a beautiful and well-kept hotel. The Seaview room is well proportioned and well equipped. The hotel’s position next to the water, the quite area, the room and the breakfast facilities make for a truly relaxing environment. The booking process was excellent. The hotel was very clean. The food choice at breakfast was excellent. However, the cost and variety of food offered in the evening in the hotel (not Restaurant J) were disappointing. All staff were pleasant and professional. I would very much recommend this hotel.
