No heat in our room during our January Visit

Posted 20-Jan-2015
Great hotel. Nice bistro. Beautiful stylish decor. Great location. Nice staff. Wonderful buffet breakfast. Nevertheless the heating system in our room was broken and not repaired during our stay. We made due with a space heater. In my humble opinion we should have been moved to another room or even upgraded.

Special hotel beautiful City

Posted 4-Jan-2015
Pros: Boutique feel, Classy cool and really good service.
Transfer by taxi from Arlanda to Rival (540.00 sek) booked through hotel. Good idea before you get to know Stockholm Which is best explored on foot. Arrived at night Stockholm and hotel felt very special. Being 41 and born in Stockholm I imagined perhaps a bigger connection with ABBA for this hotel. It is played down which for me is a shame. The hotel has a very cool music / media feel with movies and music supplied and attention given to audio in the bathroom. A slatted blind enabled views from the bathroom into the main room. Very cool. The bar and restaurant are exceptional. Stockholm is apparently amazing in spring/summer (from May) but if you enjoy a naturally beautiful City winter is worth a romantic stop over.

Tolles Designhotel in zentraler Lage

Posted 27-Dec-2014
Cons: Zimmer sind für einen längeren Aufenthalt eventuell etwas klein und die Cocktails konnten mit dm coolen Ambiente der Bar leider nicht mithalten.
Stylisch und gemütlich, sehr nettes Personal, fantastisches Frühstück und in Laufentfernung von Gamla Stan.

Good modern hotel in Stockholm

Posted 8-Dec-2014
The hotel is modern, clean and efficient. Our room was very compact, which is fine for a weekend but for no longer than that. The walls are not sound proofed so you could hear the other guests playing music and the another one above taking a bath at 6am. The breakfast was very nice, with a good selection. The staff were attentive. The hotel is a good 20 minute walk to the old town.

En övernattning

Posted 31-Oct-2014 on Hotels.com
Jag och min tonårsdotter var på shopping och evenemang i Stockholm. Valde hotellet för att det skulle vara nära till evenemanget.Rival ligger nära tunnelbanna vid Mariatorget. Hotelet är rent och snyggt.Omådet runt hotellet är lugnt och trevligt med mycket cafér, restaurangeroch små affärer. Rummet vi fick var mycket litet. Det finns en fin musik och film anläggning på rummet och man kan se gratis filmer om man så önskar. Frukosten var ganska ordinär. Jag tycker att hotellet var helt okej men inte prisvärt.

Heerlijk hotel om bij te komen!

Posted 27-Oct-2014
Goed verzorgd hotel met alles erop en eraan. Eten uitgebreid en goed, service is goed, gratis koffie bar top, goeie locatie makkelijk te bereiken. Zowel lopend als met de metro. Leuke restaurants in de buurt zoals tapas bar ramblas of café de pelikan.

Personligt med bästa frukosten

Posted 24-Oct-2014 on Hotels.com
Kul hotell med filmer och CD på rummet. Ta med 3,5mm kabel så kan ni streama musik från mobilen till rummet och badrummet.
