Recent guest reviews

Stayed here while traveling with the family to see Stockholm. Used Westin points. Clean rooms modern facility overlooking the water. Boat available to downtown. If you are driving a car this is a good place to stay outside the city.

My husband and I stayed at Hotel J in December, and I'm still thinking about how much we loved it! Everything about this experience was wonderful for us. The room, balcony, and view all felt so relaxing. We adored the breakfast in the old building, and loved being able to walk extensively along the waterfront (there's an amazing path if you head toward Stockholm). Riding the ferry to Stockholm was perfect, especially as it was decorated for the holidays and felt so festive. The design of the property is beautiful, too. Really fantastic indoor & outdoor public spaces around the property (fur throws on Adirondack chairs, fires blazing, candles in the windows). Also, great cable tv for cuddle-times in the room, and an amazing shower in the spacious bathroom. All in all, a joy for us. I hope to return.

Decided to visit this one as it is part of the Starwood-chain. Pleasant reception with a small lobby-bar-restaurant with an ok menu. I had a two-floor room the first night, with a sea view. Really nice sea-inspired design, however I prefer more modern taps in the bathroom, especially the one for the bathtub (no separate shower boot). The next nights I had a one-floor room, with a small view towards the sea. Also a very good room. The TV-set application is a bit odd, compared to many of the other Starwood brands, no way to set wake-up or do anything else. No gym, but there's a lot to see if you take the time to walk along the shore. Lots of boats passing by. Pleasant personnell, feels like a family hotel. The location is a bit outside of the city, from Slussen it takes about 20minutes by bus. By ferry from Nybroplan approx 30minutes. I really loved to take the 07:25/07:45 morning ferry to Nybroplan (they brewed coffee for free).

upsides: Pared back Scandinavian simplicity matched with very friendly, helpful service. A wonderful location beside the sea, with an almost constant stream of ships (some of them very large) going past. Light, clean rooms with comfortable beds. Good bathrooms and balconies with sea views. Very good food in restaurant, especially breakfast. downsides: the small range of facilities. No gym on site (you can use one locally but you need to walk to get there) no spa / sauna on site (again they have a deal with one five minutes walk away) no pool. No coffee making facilities in room, no room service. It's also a twenty minute drive or 30 minute boat ride from the centre of Stockholm

I was browsing TripAdvisor and thinking back about a trip I took to Stockholm, ten years ago, as a 17 year old girl with my parents. We stayed in Hotel J for a couple of nights, and I distinctly remember how good I felt there. The whole design of the hotel and its grounds, the attention to detail and location made it a very beautiful trip. I guess I realised later on that my experience at Hotel J was something that inspired me to become an interior designer later in life. I'm curious to see how the hotel has evolved and am excited to come back some time!

First visit to Stockholm and stayed 7 nights at the Nacka J. Good decision. We rented bikes in the city and "commuted" with bike and/or boat. Best features? Breakfast in the old villa with a window table. Sitting in the garden with a cold brew (or coffee) and watching the big ferries pass by or just enjoying the city lights in the distance. It's definitely not a central Stockholm location but it gave a great "summer residence" feeling. The Nacka J has a cool and relaxed vibe, all the amenities you need and lets you sit in the island world that makes Stockholm and surroundings famous. If you don't want downtown hustle and bustle at the doorstep, this is a great alternative.

It's stylish hotel in Stockholm. We visited this hotel for summer holiday. They have chairs outside, you can sunbath till midnight in summer. Hotel has bar downstair, where you can serve yourself and you just write you consumption to paper sheet. It's really swedish experience. In 5 minute walk you can reach boat shuttle, which can take you directly to old town or Djurgården island where is Vasa museum, Skansen or Grona Lund park with roller coasters.

The staff were attentive and super helpful. There is a shared living room where you can enjoy drinks and snacks. We visited during winter so the roaring fire made it so cosy! Our room had a bay view and I could have just stayed in the room watching the cruise ships and boats pass. I loved the elegant decor running throughout the hotel. The surrounding area was so peaceful and you just know it will have a fantastic vibe in the summer.

I usually stay downtown or at the Elute Marina however I am glad I booked this as it soo chilled out and relaxed . The Hotel J in Stockholm has a style influenced by the smooth lines and fine craftsmanship of yachting and classic Swedish design. The interior is bright and airy, with light oak furniture and chairs covered in thick white cotton, offset by dark wood flooring. There is a feel of New England in the red, white and blue scheme but the fine view from the best rooms is of Stockholm harbour. This is now one of my saved hotels for Stockholm - sublime!

Hotel J is located on the coast an inexpensive, very regular, 30 minute ferry ride from the city. From Arlanda airport its a 45 minute 650 kr fixed price with Stockholm Taxi (really good). The hotel has great sea views and the decor/style is a Scandi/New England mix - lovely. Bizarrely breakfast is served in a close by, seperate but beautiful old building with main lunch and dinner service in the Restaurant J Yacht Club building, on the harbourside, 5 minutes away. The food is excellent and the bouillabaise and chocolate creme brulee not cheap but quite superb. Service throughout the hotel is very good and friendly and we will visit again at a warmer time.
