Recent guest reviews

Great location and view of the Harbor and City Hall

Convenient and quiet. Right by the Arlanda train to the airport and the city terminal. Can easily walk to the old town for tourists. Excellent complimentary buffet breakfast. They even let us check in early after our cruise since they had an open room.

Visiting Stockholm for a few days, and very happy with this hotel. Located right next to the central railroad station and bus station, walking distance to the Hertz car rental. Clean and comfortable room, friendly staff and outstanding breakfast! Will return!

Great location, next to the train station. Room was nice and spacious.

First trip to Sweden. Hotel close and convenient. Good breakfast buffet. Staff EXCELLENT. We had a lot of help from Emily! Great at her job!

We were taking the Arlanda Express the next morning to the airport. We could not have asked for a more convenient location: right next to the Central Train Station. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the breakfast buffet was delicious, and the check-in was fast. We had a very positive experience.

Hotel is very friendly, comfortable and of very high quality. Right across the street from Central Station so convenient to everything. Breakfast buffet is awesome!

The hotel is in a very confident location I took the ARN express train from the airport and the hotel access was right there at Central Station. Just a 5-10 min. walk when we got off the train. The breakfast buffet was above average from what we had in other hotels in our 2 weeks visit. The staff was very helpful when we had any question.

The customer service was great at the front desk. I just wished the check in could be earlier, but this hotel is pretty busy. The only complaint I had was that I was too close to the elevators and it was noisy, but when I returned two weeks later they changed my room and it was fine. The value could have been better compared to other hotels, but I also booked late so I understand. Wish I had a view of the water as well.

This is a well situated, great hotel in Stockholm. It definitely met all of our expectations.

Unfortunately we made a mistake with our reservation and booked for the wrong date, which caused us to miss our check in date after arriving from a 10 hour red-eye flight. We were exhausted and overwhelmed, but the gentleman at the front desk was very helpful in giving us the wifi code and helping us find another hotel down a few blocks, because the Radison was completely booked. The hotel was right next to the central terminal and had an amazing looking bar/restaurant. The only regret is that I wish we could have gotten some sort of refund.

The location is right next to the central train station and all walking destinations to go to the old town and shopping streets. The breakfast has a huge array of traditional swedish dishes and standard continental far. The rooms are spotless and new and moderately sized and quiet.

Overall a good stay for a one-night business trip. I felt that the check in/out procedure was a little time consuming. Everything was prepaid checking in but it still took about 10 minutes to get our room key and when we checked out there was a long line for 9:30am and that was with 4 staff members working and a supervisor overtop. It was pricy but a nice hotel as well.

My husband was in town for a business trip, and I decided to tag along. Our first night was at the Grand Hotel. The room, which was quite small, was more classic in design and more expensive. The Grand was great for location, location, location and the hotel's incredible restaurant, Matbaren. Radisson Blu was half the cost and the rooms, the shower, the view of the water, etc., felt cleaner, more accessible and the staff was very helpful. When asked for a 13:30 checkout, they gave us a 14:00 checkout. The location is about a 15 minute walk to the palace, docks for boat rides to Stockholm, the Archipelago, etc. Radisson Blu Waterfront blu is by city hall and shopping and next door to train station if you plan to take the express to Arlanda.

Great staff and location! It was an excellent choice for our stay at Stockholm.

We needed a hotel for a night before getting onto a cruise and this was perfect. Took the train in from the airport and it was right next to it near the water. It's near the pedestrian street great for restaurants and shopping. Amazing breakfast included the next morning plus free Wi-Fi, One downside was the bathroom was a bit small with the semi-open shower only setup but again, it was just for one night.

Stayed late July for 3 nights during the heat wave. Hotel was undergoing several remodel projects (stripping wood floors in lobby area and re-staining; fumes were unpleasant). Two elevators out of four were out of order. Bar and restaurant were closed off intermittently due to remodel work; strange for a hotel that is relatively new. Air conditioning was poor and room was warm and stuffy, but heard that was typical at other hotels in the area as well. Location was pretty good near Central T station and express train to/from airport and also close to City Hall and waterfront. Amenities were mediocre and had to make special requests to get shower gel and soap restocked. Restaurant food was okay. Checked out breakfast buffet but didn't look so great so skipped.

I stayed at this hotel 2 years ago and had fond memories of the location and room and decided to return this year for two nights. The staff decided to put me in a handicap accessible room withOUT asking me first. Honestly, I typically don't mind it too much. But for someone who happens to be 6'4 it is not ideal. Also, I was on vacation and had chosen this hotel as a treat to my partner and myself. Having traveled and toured all day, we decided to keep the room and complain about it later. Maybe we should have changed rooms because a day later a cut my head on a sharp low corner beside the bed when I leaned over to put something on the nightstand. The rooms are not really designed for tall people. Fortunately, the wound was not deep enough to require stitches. Strike two occurred when the breakfast that was supposed to be served until 11, stopped an hour earlier the next morning. Probably due to the inconvenient construction and floor polishing that was shutting down half the elevators. Strike number three occurred when there were not enough bicycles for the guests that were at the hotel. I realize that this sometimes happens. But it was just the icing on the cake for us. When we asked for a suggestion on biking rentals, they suggested the city-bike program which really is not ideal. The downtown area does not have many of those bikes available. So we finally found a great bike rental place outside of Djurgarden that had great bikes at a decent price. After my second visit to Stockholm, I think I will try the Sheraton that is on the cusp of Old Town on our next visit. For the price paid, I think I would get a better value somewhere else.

Wonderful staff, great location, highly recommend but no need for a swimsuit as there is no pool.

We actually though we were books into the Radisson on the other side of the main train station (the Viking) but did not regret the mistake even though the Viking is also excellent. This one is just as good, and had a slightly larger room for us and an incredible view of the water and City Hall - nearly midnight sun and all! Great breakfast, responsive staff but be warned, they take humungous group tours who arrive and sometimes take over check in and out since thr foyer is a bit on the small size - thank goodness for express check out. Both these Radissons are excellent and not having to pay for a taxi from the station with luggage (you just roll the cases 5 minutes from the train platforms) should be factored into the price you are prepared to pay. These are excellent value.
