Surrounded by museums, small antique shops and music venues in Stockholm’s homely Vasastaden district, Hotel Birger Jarl offers a warm and welcoming backdrop for a hip and chic stay in the Swedish capital.
In its 271 rooms, as well as throughout its communal spaces, the hotel features suitably Scandinavian stylings – combinations of wood, cream-toned fabrics and minimalist decorative statements. Those looking to keep fit can work out in the gym, before enjoying an à la carte dinner in the Restaurant and a cocktail or coffee in the bar.
On your doorstep you’ll find the intriguingly designed Stadsbiblioteket library, Stockholm Observatory and Vasaparken park. Elsewhere across the capital’s 14 islands, sights you shouldn’t miss include the Moderna Museet’s vast art collection, the Royal Swedish Opera, the expansive Hagaparken and the island of Långholmen – where you can enjoy ice-cream and a spot of bathing on warm days. To top it all off, you’ll be but a five-minute walk from Rådmansgatan metro station.
How to Get There
This hotel was really good... excellent breakfast and quite nice bar . The location is perfect for shops bars & restaurants. It’s only a 15 to 20 minutes walk to Gamla Stan the old town. We kept discovering new streets & shortcuts to the main areas ... would recommend
Awesome hotel, stayed four nights, helpful friendly staff, clean rooms and comfortable beds, the breakfast was amazing. Highly recomend this hotel, location is good and walking distance to almost everywhere
Was here for the business purpose, to attend a seminar organized in the hotel. This is good for such events, the facilities to organize workshop, seminars, etc. are fine. Staff is hospitable, supportive. The hotel has a very good location, near to the central streets, 5-10 minutes on foot. The rooms are clean, but a bit small. Anyway, it is indeed good hotel for business purposes, for meetings and spend for a few nights there.
We stayed in this hotel for 5 nights two weeks ago. Had requested an upgrade in advance with additional charge which was reasonable. Room size was much better than the standard accordingly.
Location is ok. Situated in a quiet area. 10 minutes walk from a metro station.
Most of the front desk staff seemed too tired to smile, except the young staff. So if you want to ask something, you'd better ask the younger ones. Our room was dated even it looked like it was newly renovated. Towels were aged and no longer white.
Breakfast was excellent with fresh fruit juice, nice espresso and a great variety of hot meal, cold cut and bread.
All in all, it was fictional if for business trips, but with this price for leisure holidays you will expect a nicer touch from the hotel.
Cancelled our reservation whilst we were on the plane to Sweden after sending us an email confirmation a week before, leaving us nowhere to go on arrival. Do not stay here if you actually want a place to sleep when you get there.
