The Hotel is placed close to the metro, shops and restaurants, it only takes 10 min to the center. The rooms are quite small, but clean. The staff is friendly, the breakfast is good, however the breakfast restaurant is to small for all the guests and the furniture is not ideal. You will have to pay on arrival. This hotel...

Slept one night in their cheapest windowless rooms, down two levels from the reception. Corridors down there are a bit claustrophobic, and it's obvious that the hotel is not new. Not totally shabby, but you notice the years which have passed. Room was much better than the corridor, nothing really to complain about. Small, but decently clean. A somewhat narrow...

The room was tiny and had no window so was very hot and stuffy. After only one night’s stay I found that I was covered in insect bites all over my body. I registered this with the receptionist on Friday morning as I left. I was even bitten on my eyelid and this particular bite swelled up so badly that...

The view from the Dag Hammarskjöld suites was awesome, the room itself was spacious and very clean. Awesome restaurants and shops nearby, short walking distance to the metro! The staff were polite! Loved the breakfast too.

I was on a business trip and booked the hotel without understanding, that I'll be spending the 3 nights underground. Upon arrival the receptionist told me, that -1 floor.. I looked at him and asked what do you mean, I'm staying in the basement? And asked if it would be possible to get a room on ground. He told me...

Not a value-for-money room accommodation considering the daily rate charged. This was a two floor below ground floor room, very narrow(similar to a box room) though with toilet and shower. No wardrobe and scanty pillow/beddings. Ventilation is poor and with no daylight. One could not tell the time of the day. There was an incident in which while in the...

Having read all the critical reviews, I didn't have high expectations on this hotel. But in the end I couldn't complain. I had a basic room on one of the upper floors (so with a window!): no big luxury, but clean and comfortable. Nice service, good wifi and perfectly connected to the airport and the city centre. The breakfast room...

For a price which is really no bargain, a rabbit warren of dozens of tiny rooms in a basement WITH NO WINDOWS! No ventilation, can hear every move neighbours make through paper thin walls. A terrible hole to stay in. Stay away.

Situated near the Stockholm city centre, the hotel is the best for the travelers who want to explore the city and finally have some relaxing time in their room. Excellent staff, modern and very comfortable room, very powerfull wifi service and a plentiful braekfast. I recommend the First Hotel ever and ever to all the people wants to visit the...
