Booked this hotel after reading reviews on Trip Advisor and we were very pleased overall. Location ideal, short walk to all amenities and centre of Stockholm. We took advantage of the free walking tour (although we did tip the guide) and also the City Card - which is great as long as you plan ahead and use it for everything...

Picked this hotel after looking at the rex petit hotel. Initially we were going to go for the cheap rex petit hotel but then realised that for about 15 pounds more a night we would get a bigger room with a window. Split between two for three nights it was a no brainer. Location is great, right by radmansgatan metro...

Booked at Hotel Hellstens for three nights in July and very happy with the room, service and breakfast. The building has a dark cavernous entrance and eclectic furnishings in the bar and lounge areas, which give a great atmosphere, as well as narrow and windy corridors but don't let that put you off this hospitable hotel.

Overall a really good hotel with friendly, helpful staff. All facilities are very clean and the room size is OK. Nice to have the breakfast included, fish in the morning is great! The only downside: you can't open a window in basement rooms.

I was on a 3-day business trip to Stockholm in May 2013. Ended up booking this hotel based on price and location and reviews. I booked my hotel through Expedia.

Stayed here for four nights in July. Quirky oriental-styled decor, including dark wood furniture and red painted walls. African theme (including tribal masks) in the bar. Very comfortable throughout, with friendly, smiley, helpful staff. Our room was quite small and dominated by a massive four-poster bed. Decent bathroom with shower over bath. Everything spotlessly clean. Only thing that we didn't...

We booked our room after seeing a documentary on Stockholm where the reporter stayed at Hotel Hellsten. We had a lovely room.

Staying in Vasastan

Neighbourhood Profile
Vasastan
Vasastan is one of those neighborhoods that almost looks too good to be true. It has the winning combination of a central location, tranquility, and beautiful buildings – housing sophisticated bars and eateries – that makes this neighborhood Stockholm’s most sought-after place to live. If walking through this area makes you feel like walking through a fairy tale or picture book it’s no surprise, as it’s actually the film set of the famous Swedish children story Karlsson-on-the-Roof. No matter what season, Vasastan manages to impress in the sunshine, covered in snow and won’t even lose its charm when soaked in rain.
