Located in Eastern Östermalm, this hotel either near or far from the city centre, depending if you like walking. There's 15 minutes walk to Stureplan or Kungsträdgården, where bars, restaurants, and shops are located. The surroundings of the hotel are quiet, it's actually at the cul-de-sac of the street, so there's not even traffic. Single rooms are really small, with...

I stayed there for 3 nights. It was chosen for me cause work is really close by. It was an okay hotel. I liked that the bathroom has floor heating which is quite unique for a 3 star hotel. The staff were also very nice and cheerful. I think breakfast could be improved. They serve the same warm food every...

Had a pleasant time for my 5 day stay at this hotel. The room was small by U.S. standards, but everything is well placed and the bed was very comfortable. They provided a full breakfast buffet, and to my surprise, they also served a light dinner buffet from 7 to 9 on the nights I was there. It is located...

I read the reviews before I left, and they were accurate - the staff is very friendly, the location was a good base for exploring the city. The free breakfast and evening food worked very nicely for us, as it provided a nice/low-key alternative to eating at restaurants every meal. Our rooms were nice, but they were on the lower...

I was disappointed with my recent stay at the Karlaplan, although hotels in Stockholm are not cheap, and I guess you definately only get what you pay for. My room was tiny, the room itself being just a little larger than the ensuite. In fact the en-suite was quite plush in contrast to the room itself. Quite a reasonable breakfast,...

The hotel is in a very nice residential part of town. Rooms are a bit small, but comfortable. The hotel does not have AC in the rooms, but windows open and it wasn't too warm when I stayed there in August 2012. Breakfast is excellent, staff friendly, and service is ok.

The hotel is located in a fantasic area. Walking distance to Vasamuseet, Skansen, Gröna Lund, and many other museums. No restaurant onsite but plenty of options a few minutes away. Our room was basic but in good condition. Overall I would recommend this hotel for anyone who is planning to do sightseeing around Djurgården and is looking for a good...

During the week when I needed to be in Stockholm, there were three major hi-tech conferences, and the whole city was booked up, so I considered myself lucky to find a room here. Needless to say, all hotel room prices were inflated. I had some reservations about the location of this hotel, but then, before I had seen it, my...

Stayed at the Karlaplan Best Western on Business for 4 nights (Mon-Thurs). Positives were: Friendly knowledgeable staff and good location . Negatives were: No aircon and the breakfast was not very good. (Aircon was required on one night as it was very warm with the windows closed. Unfortunately, opening the windows did not help as it was very noisy between...

Staying in Ostermalm

Neighbourhood Profile
With its high-end shopping facilities and Michelin-starred restaurants, Östermalm is definitely the poshest part of central Stockholm. Here you will find Stockholm’s most majestic residential buildings, a beautiful market hall from 1888 displaying gourmet foods from around the world and the Swedish Royal Dramatic Theatre with its awe-inspiring architecture. At night, legendary nightclubs make the perfect location to observe the natives (and those aspiring to become natives of this exclusive neighborhood) in their natural habitat and to enjoy the latest produce of the Swedish house music scene.
