Recent guest reviews

If you want to be well located choose this hotel. You can basically walk to anywhere in town!! Surrounded by finest luxury brands stores, neighborhood is definitely premium. Breakfast is value for money! Definitely important when you spend the rest of the day visiting. Bravo for that But my room finishings were average, water not hot enough. Half of staff was great, other half (receptionist Elin) was not proactive. Had to beg her to help me because she was on the phone for 10 minutes though I was expecting help with my room card. So, I would say that if location is your priority go for this hotel but if you are expecting better service (up to the level of the location) choose another hotel!

Quite nice room with balcony towards the lobby. Familiar feeling and good breakfast. Booked through but great service at the hotel. Perfect location and good atmosphere. I would absolutely recommend this hotel.

Hotel Kung Carl is in an excellent location, a short walk from everything and right on Stureplan, with shops, restaurants and bars. The superior room was very large and despite it being on the first floor, we slept well every night. Breakfast was excellent with loads of choice, but the breakfast room struggled to cope with the number of guests at peak time. The hotel bar is a nice place and drinks prices are reasonable by Stockholm standards. There are better hotels, but not at this pace level.

The hotel is a super little find in a brilliant place for exploring Stockholm. The room was perfect for a city hotel although due to the unseasonal heat air conditioning would have been good but we were provided with a fan. Breakfastt was lovely too.

With a very good service level. Staff is so nice. They always great us. They even remember our names. Breakfast is one of the best, they fill it up very fast. Room is always very clean and ready for us.

Great location, walking distance to the historical area, and plenty of restaurants. It has a lovely terrace to enjoy a drink with a beautifull view, The breakfast is superb! All the rooms are different try to ask for one you would like.

Very nice, clean and cosy Rooms. Friendly staff and lovely breakfast. Nice sundeck and bararea. Very good location with walking distance to every area of the City. The only downfall is the loud noise from the nightclub across the street.

A friendly, Clean, bright hotel in a great central location. Very good value for money. We were especially impressed with the breakfast selection Reception staff were especially helpful and the family bunk bed room plus a travel cot suited out family of 5 perfectly

The hotel seems to be three separate towers with separate elevators; when one failed we had to go up another tower, go thru a connecting bedroom and walk the rest of the way. rooms are worn with little light, hard to work in. Very good diverse breakfast. The staff could use some social interaction training. There is a lot of street noise in the evening

We stayed three nights at hotel Kung Carl in June with my husband and 11 month year old baby. The hotel lobby was refurbished with style and also the restaurant where the breakfast was served was very cosy. We used the bigger elevator where the stroller fit with ease with even four adults. The room was modest and somewhat worn out but clean. The room was also very small, but of course the stroller and the baby crib took some space. Our room was quiet during the night and we had air conditioning. The breakfast was ok. There were all the basics and some nice extras like the quinoa oat pudding. Two mornings I asked the kitchen personnel if they could make some oatmeal for the baby. I presume that oatmeal is not as popular in Sweden as it is in Finland, where they serve it in every hotel, because the personnel didn’t at first know what it is. Anyways, they were very helpful and we got some oatmeal. We found it somewhat odd that the restaurant excluding the breakfast was closed during the busiest tourist season. Also the bar didn’t open before 4 pm. Because both were closed most of the time it made the hotel look somewhat drowsy. We have some thoughts about the service. I noticed as reading the Finnish language reviews that some others had commented the service too. The service in the reception was ok but somehow indifferent. Especially the blond male receptionist with classes made a somewhat arrogant impression. We observed that this was probably not the case with every quest so we have some thoughts why this could be. When we arrived to the hotel this particular receptionist recognised that we’d made the reservation thru the shipping company Viking Line. Here has to be mentioned that the tourists who usually travel by ship from Finland to Sweden might have a not-so-classy reputation, maybe deservedly. Anyways, we felt that we were not very important quests at the hotel. When we left there was no other customers in the lobby but neither of the receptionist greeted us goodbye. Our experience is that what separates a great hotel from a mediocre one are not the amenities but the service. Service should never be influenced by the customers wealth, status etc.
