What To Know

Occupying two elegant 19th-century stone-clad buildings on a bustling shopping street in the heart of Stockholm, Hotel Drottning Kristinacertainly makes for a stylish stay. From the moment you walk in, you’ll be greeted by a grand marble staircase, twinkling chandeliers and an impressive vintage elevator. The pared-back guest rooms, meanwhile, subtly embrace Gustavian style – think soft color palettes, painted furniture and statement stripes.
You’ll find more here than just chic décor, however. There’s an exquisite restaurant that prides itself on making the most of seasonal ingredients, while the cozy lounge library on the fourth floor is an unexpected bonus, with rugs, wing-backed armchairs and well-stocked bookshelves. And when you’re ready to explore the city, all you need to do is step outside. The hotel’s namesake square, Stureplan, is filled with high-end shopping and dining, and Gamla Stan, Stockholm’s charming old town, is just a 20-minute walk away.
Standard Double rooms offer clean, minimalist décor and average 170 square feet, with plush queen-size beds and convenient work desks. Superior Double rooms feature a more Gustavian flavor, with charming décor and 215 square feet of space. The Suites are the most lavish of all, with king-size beds, separate living rooms and plenty of space to stretch out in.
Azzolino is a relaxed and inviting eatery that showcases fresh ingredients and regional cooking styles. The menu features dishes inspired by Swedish and Italian cuisines, and a bar is on hand with delicious cocktails and a tempting wine list. The restaurant serves breakfast and lunch Monday through Friday, and dinner is served Tuesday through Saturday. During the warmer months, enjoy your meal in the tranquil inner courtyard.
The hotel is located mere steps from Stureplan, one of the city’s central squares. Set between the neighborhoods of Östermalm and Norrmalm, this area is home to some of Stockholm’s best shopping, dining and nightlife. It’s also just a 20-minute walk from Gamla Stan, the city’s enchanting old town.
How to Get There
My and best pal had a scarce opportunity to have a four day break, a summer holiday of four single days. My sister living in Stockholm, my former hometown, was at home. We booked over Net and off we went.
We were met by a friendly handsome Swede with a lovely voice, the check in took maybe four or five minutes.
Room was quiet, airy and cosy. The bed marvelous. Fascilities and equipment just as you wish it to be. Iron, minibar, hotel info, hairdryer, a very nice bathroom. Everything clean and sober, no air conditioner but there were possibility to sleep with open window and there were a fan, too.
In the room there were a little fireplace, just to light up some candles in.
We borrowed a champagne cooler and ice from the handsome Italian in the bar/ restaurant, get served fraught beers by the elegant Russian waiter and we were met with politeness and kindness by all staff members.
Sister arriving, no problem, they provided her with a keycard while my and my pal were taking a power nap.
Breakfast sumptuous, fresh and to my great delight they served a local delicacy like Kalles Kaviar, a cod roe spread, sweet and salt. Even the smoked small sausages makes me feel more at home, besides all the sweets, cinnamon rolls and great choice of all possible cheeses and cutleries, bread and stuff. Great choice of warm food, too. To be enjoyed on the upper terrace, where we spent more time than expected, just having a looooong breakfast and a chat between friends.
I slept well, except some nerds smoking on the balcony opposite to our room, and manically talking in their phones. We were facing the calm and quiet inner yard. An Italian guy could not find out how to close the old fashioned doors to the balcony and the reflections cast from the mirroring windows woke me up, but this is just ephemera....
Our stay was great, the interior is very cosy, athmospheric, the staff kind and not invasive, friendly in a personal manner. The price for us coming from Denmark was cheap, so was the room service prices and I sure gonna book again! Many people say the rooms are small, they are, but satisfying, what you need all the space for? This hotel is for overnight in shining white linen, excellent comfort and cosy little bit serene athmosphere. My friend declared this was the best stay in his adult life, cheap and surprisingly comfy, cosy and elegant.
This was my first time at hotel Drottning Kristina ! And what a time - lovely charming hotel with VERY cosy rooms which were REAL clean !
FRIENDLY staff super service ( special regards to the Italian and the Russian waiter and ALL the other staff too

Extremely cosy hotel with very friendly staff, great atmosphere, nice rooms, superb breakfast and excellent location. I will most definately come back. Great value for money! I highly recomment this hotel for both, business and leasure!
We greatly enjoyed this charming and historic hotel centrally located in Stockholm. All staff were friendly and very helpful. The breakfast in particular was a tasty and thoughtful selection to set us up for the day. The Hop on Hop off red bus stop was just down the road and conveniently placed for our excursions. Alternatively, it was an easy walk down to the water, old town and harbour. Several restaurants close by too.
We stayed here for 4 nights. First, the location is perfect for all the local attractions like the Vasa Museum, Skansen, Canal tour, shopping, Old Town, Nobel Prize Museum, the Palace and the Parliament. There is a Metro close by too. The hotel was very clean, lots of amenities and the breakfast selection was great. The staffs are knowledgeable and welcoming. Great value for money. We stayed in room 208.
