Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Nice front desk service and breakfast. Room arrangements were looks good, but then the blanket had some weird smell and we are expecting to have dental kit and some complementary drink. Overall it was not a pleasant night with a bad odour bedsheets.

Nice hotel, magnificent view from the room, good restaurants on the top floor, 25 stores up! Really good breakfast and everything you can ever search for is round the corner outside the hotel! Just 5min walk, next door, you’ll find the biggest, Mall of Scandinavia! So! Enjoy! 😉👍

I have spent many nights at Quality Hotel Friends with reasonable rooms, but last Monday they gave me a room without any windows, except for a small skylight. It was like sleeping in a bunker or prison cell; very depressing and difficult to relax. If you have to stay here, make sure you don't get one of their horrible "newly renovated" rooms without windows. Bengt Hammar

We booked a stay in mid December 2021 only to be told that the hotel would be closing over that period. The matter was resolved with exceptional professionalism, excellent communication from the G. M Robin who went over and beyond to help us. I can’t praise him enough, a true asset to the hotel. Thank you

It is a good hotel for both family trip and business travel. The room is cleaning. The breakfast is good. It is close to the Mall and Solna center. The hotel is new and has air-conditioning system in the room. However, it is difficult to navigate to the entrance of the hotel by the Google map.

Well this is a hotel with a great potential as a DINK's hotel. Why only 2 out of five then? Well the rooms are nice but it is worn down and no boiler for water or coffee machine, first time I've come across this in a hotel of this standard. But the view is great if you are high enough, nooo not that kind of high! Tje first floor bar wasn't open when I was there so I can't give any feedback here. Over all it feels like the hotel is waiting for the pandemic to pass.. The staff was great and so was the gym!

Needed a quick one night stay in the area and found the price, location and inclusive breakfast as a great choice. Very convenient to Mall of Scandinavia and inclusive breakfast was very well stocked, organized and nice.

Just spent another night in suite 2503 on the top floor and while the suite itself did not disappoint (except when it came to HVAC and room temp, which was too cold for comfort), the Covid-19 reponse did. Since my last stay in July, the breakfast had somehow gotten significantly worse from a Covid standpoint and not all staff members wore their face masks, despite Nordic Choice policy to do so. I will note, however, that the hotel itself continues to provide excellent value, and if it just got Covid-19 measures and room temperature right, it would be a slam dunk.

We stayed in a king suite on the top floor and it was overall a very nice stay. The suite offered spectacular views from the 25th floor, it was stylish and very spacious (by Swedish standards), the bed was comfy and the property has a very good location (adjacent to a large shopping mall and near public transportation, highways, nature and Arlanda airport). So far, so good. However, it did have one major drawback - the heating/AC system was terrible. Both rooms in our suite were freezing no matter how we tried to adjust the thermostats and even with three extra radiators (provided by the hotel when we complained) it was uncomfortably and unacceptably cold. So much in fact that I would not return without bringing a couple of powerful space heaters. There was also a severe lack of outlets in the suite, so I would also bring an extension cord and a USB hub :)

Stayed one night at this hotel, have stayed here once before, and was very pleased even this time. Got a room high up with lovely views, including the Globe in Stockholm, spacious and well-cleaned, very comfortable beds. Friendly and accommodating staff. Due to the Corona pandemic, the breakfast buffet was minimal, but still fully adequate.
