Highly recommend! Great service/room/breakfast!
We really could not have asked for more: The Hotel Rival is a beautiful place to stay, with stylish and functional rooms, an ideal location that is both tucked away and close to Stockholm's most vibrant neighborhoods, a friendly and helpful staff, multiple on-site restaurants, and a delicious breakfast. Most days we'd fill up on breakfast and then set out walking Stockholm's historic streets, not stopping until dinner. From the Rival's charming parkside locale, you can easily walk to Gamla Stan and the palace, or take the nearby subway or ferries to farther locations. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

Favorite Hotel of Long Trip
Loved this property. It was our favorite of an extended trip. The staff was incredibly easygoing and helpful. The room was large and had an accessible, usable balcony! Plenty of storage, great bathroom and shower (and tub!). Everything worked well. Breakfast was fabulous. Valet parking was expensive, but extremely convenient. Did I mention the staff? They were all great. Oh, I did mention it, but calling it out again!

We really enjoyed Hotel Rival! The breakfast was delicious and was available until 11:30am. The location was excellent: walking distances to the old city and easily accessible on bikes and transit. The staff were extremely accommodating and when we had issues with the ac in our room, upgraded us. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in Stockholm and will definitely return in the future.
