        • Older travelers
          5.4

          Room is very tiny and no air conditioning. The hotel is under renovation which should be mention during booking. Our room is on 3rd level just above the renovation dumping bin, during weekday, the workers who started from 0730. The closet is very 'hot' as the fridge is fit within the closet and very close to the bed....it is very nice warmer in winter, but during summer, it is just a bit too much. Breakfast is very crowded.

          wonderfull staff ,hotel very close to the city

        • Group of friends
          9.6

          there's some construction work in hotel, but it did not impact at all. Hotel staff is very friendly and is always nice to us when we had questions. Location is excellent, just 2 stops from the central train station and you could reach it via 3 subway lines (and you could take two of them to reach the "queen island"). There are also 2 supermarkets nearby (around 10 minutes on foot). Breakfest is great. On the last day, we need to leave hotel very early and could not take breakfest, they also provided us "breakfest box" (need to book one day before). The size of room is fine, not so small. We have the experience and know that normally hotel rooms in Sweden or Danmark are quite small (if you have small budget for hotel), so Birger Jarl's room is quite ok on our opinion.

        • Single
          5.0

          Only the location

          The staff smile a lot but arent very sharp. The rooms are badly designed...as is the general layout of the hotel. Etc etc. I basically only like the location of the hotel...nothing else.

        • Single
          8.2

          the room is quite clean and comfortable

          I lived in a room which is close to the elevator, when there was someone walking in the hallway or talking in night, I can hear it, it is quite annoying.

        • Family with children
          9.2

          The staff were very friendly and helpful and the location is quite convenient. The room was nice, a modern design but small which is to be expected for Stockholm.

          Unfortunately the hotel was ungoing renovations and there was drilling throughout the day which was not very pleasant.

        • Couple
          3.2

          Location

          Renovations were going on during our stay-noisy. The rooms were hot and stuffy. The lifts were out of order and we had to use the goods lift. Breakfast was atrocious.

        • Older travelers
          7.8

          Some of the staff are beautiful

        • Family with children
          7.4

          The rooms are very well insulated, so you do not hear noise from other guests. The street is pretty quiet as well. The beds are comfortable.

          The rooms were a little bit too small.

        • Single
          9.2

          The staff are numerous, friendly, bilingual and very professional. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The facilities in the room are excellent including hairdryer, stationary, ironing board and Iron, tea and coffee-making facilities, a safe and complementary drinks in the fridge.The location is very central and makes for a convenient, easy city break in Stockholm.

          I wish the pool had access to a pool/spa.

        • Single
          7.8

          The staff were very friendly and helpful. They gave a lot of advice about sightseeing in Stockholm. The room was very comfortable.

        • Couple
          6.6

          Hotel stuff is very friendly

          Everywhere is written that there is wireless but i does not work in the rooms. The rooms are a bit tiny and we had two single beds instead of a french bed.

        • Couple
          4.6

          Great service in reception.

          Not in close walking distance to any interesting places. Crowded eating area. The staff preparing breakfast was not service minded (maybe they had too much to do?) Hotel is under rehabilitation. My room ("business room") was quite modern, but windows needed maintenance, I got a splinter in my finger when touching it. Bathroom to small to be comfortable (the bathtub took too much space - a shower cabinet would have been better).

        • Couple
          9.6

          free wireless internet, great breakfast,not far from the metro and city center
