    Profile: Norrmalm

    Norrmalm, in central Stockholm, is attached to the island of Skeppsholmen by a bridge which takes you to some of the city’s finest museums. Moderna Museet boasts works by Duchamp, Dali, and Picasso. Summer visitors can check out the Stockholm Jazz Festival, which has welcomed BB King.

    If you’re visiting in the winter, strap on some skates and spin around the rink at Kungsträdgården park. The Royal Swedish Opera dates from 1773 and stages classical operas and ballets, while Centralbadet is an elegant bathhouse where you can swim, enjoy a sauna, and grab a cocktail at the bar.

      Good location, might be over rated

      The location of the hotel is excellent, in city center of Stockholm. The room is very small, facilities feel more like a two star hotel rather than a three star hotel. Breakfast offered enough choices but the place could have been organized better

      Scandic 53

      Perfectly ok. The room was on the small side, but very nice. There was no iron for ironing shirts in the room. No water or minibar either, and no toiletries except for soap and shampoo, so keep this in mind. The breakfast was ok too, but a bit traditional. More vegetarian options should be available such as oat or soy milk and milk-free "butter", which was lacking.

      Scandic No 53 was perfect. Room was great with a perfect Bathroom. Short walk to the main train station and the city centre. One tip for future guests; if you want your room made up then you must tell reception, we didn't so it saved on wasting water and chemicals on unnecessary cleaning. Great way to save the planet Scandic No 53.

      Room size should not discourage you, we were very pleased with the fact that they even managed to add a third bed for our 6 year old. Everything needed was there. Big bathroom, good breakfast and very kind staff at the reception. Location close to the Central Station and main shopping street :)

      Too little info

      There was missing an info paper in the room so it was hard to contact the reception and such. And they only mentioned that you have to ask to have your room cleaned on a paper in the elevator

      Bästa läget och helt ok överlag

      Vänliga och glada personal, men vissa glömde saker och man fick påminna. Sängen var väldigt oskön, anmärkningsvärt faktiskt. Mycket bra frukostbuffé och grym personal. Ett helt ok hotell, men inte mer. Läget är topp!

      Once is more than wnough

      Worked myself in hotels for many years and travelling a lot for leisure and business. Good location and reasonable breakfast buffet. Limited and expensive evening meal options. For same price you have a five star meal in Duvel and other restaurants nearby. Not recommended for European, North American and East Asian traveller guests, even more if you stay seven nights as I did. While it wasn't a problem to opt for a room without windows the room itself for a couple and for so many days is not big enough. It's like a tiny cave space. While I have worked and travelled as well in budget hotels, not good like clarion, ibis budget or other budget brands. The room is not cleaned if not asked for and between the lack of staff during the full week and the typical rudeness of the Nordic staff (I have to be frank on this even if I have Swedish family). The worse so far with Chinese one. Due to long queues in reception left a note to a receptionist asking to clean the room. Did not happen. Reported the day after face to face no empathy no politeness and again no room cleaned only replaced towels. Finally two nights before check out cleaned. No worth a pence that I wasted, very expensive compared for the quality and service. Any one can sell you a room even airbnb. Service is what make worthy to stay in a hotel or another.
