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
Perfect location in STHLM easy to walk down to central of STHLM. Clean rooms nice staff and very good breakfast. Easy to park your car outside Hotel for cheap price.
I recommend this Hotel to all that visit STHLM.
Upon check in we were charged for the hotel stay but could see they have already withdrawn money in the account once. The receptionist said it was that the money was just reserved when booking. But 4 days after the stay, they have taken the amount twice. When I contacted the hotel they couldn't see it, but if it were, it would take 5 business days before they could transfer the money back!
Poor service, as I had already pointed out the error before. And find it incredibly strange to do 5 banking days in these modern times!
Overall, the hotel was in ok condition, small rooms, and very small bathrooms.
The hotel is pretty good in essentially all aspects: clean room, clean bathroom, good breakfast, and not bad location. I had essentially no negative experiences about it. The only very minor thing I'd like to mention was that a ceiling light was blinking during breakfast, which was a bit annoying. But overall it was a positive experience.
