    Great location, great breakfast buffet, the staff were very helpful and pleasant to deal with. The only complaint was how hot it was in the room. I understand that the weather was hotter than normal so it wouldn't usually be a problem.

    Great central location! Great breakfasts and lounge area. Small, but clean rooms. Initially, at check-in, wasn't sure what to expect. Check-in time is at 3 pm. I was there at 7 pm and was told my room was not ready...!? Really? The young lady was going to suggest storing my luggage and that I should return...!? Again, really? I did not move, and said that given that I was in the correct check-in time, that all I wanted was my room. Aha, within seconds, there it was, my room. All was smooth sailing from there. If I return to Stockholm, I would certainly book the Scandic No 53 again, for its great location and cleanliness.

    I was put in a room that was in the basement! There was no window, it was very dark with poor lighting and felt like a cupboard. Very dingy and I did not being in the room. They didn’t clean it until 5 pm most days. Overall very disappointing and would never go back. This was my 7th time in Stockholm and this was the worst hotel.

    great location

    Enjoyed the location of the hotel in the heart of Stockholm. Could walk to everything we wanted to do. The room was extremely small. We stayed for 5 days and could not take clothes out of suitcase. The staff and common areas were very pleasant. I would recommend the hotel but be warned about the size of the room.

    Bara en massa ++++++ !!!

    Här kan vi bo igen!! Mycket hjälpsam och Trevlig personal oavsett tid på dygnet! Samt därtill ett perfekt läge i city. Shoppinggatan bara runt hörnet. Nära till allt! 20 min till centralstationen samt ett stenkast från plattan. Sängen var lite hård så här i efterhand för min smak men med ett gäng extra kuddar så sov vi nästan lika gott som hemma i vår egna säng. Frukostbuffén var jätte fräsch och rik på div saker att förtära. Vi vill rikta ett extra stort tack till all personal såsom kök, städ, reception samt servis som i denna tuffa tid var så trevliga och behjälpliga! Keep up the good work! Och boka detta hotell!

    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.
