“Nice, may be hard to find”
Reviewed 20 October 2011

I liked this place, stayed there for four days last November. The rooms were not big but not suffocatingly small either. We did have a potty lady two nights running who wanted the wndows open all night although it was snowing. Downstairs there were two computers with internet that you could wait to use. It's quite a big place and had guests of all ages. It was fully booked out when I was there so book ahead if possible. Showers were alright, had to leave your towel in the middle of the room on a wooden bench then exit the shower starkers to get it, but no problem for people who aren't overly shy (the bathrooms/showers were unisex, obviously). The kitchens downstairs were quite well-equipped. The only bad note was that the instructions on their site on getting to the place were not as clear as they could have been. The stairs you will have to go down from the main road take you down past public housing then into a sort of a park where the hostel is. Overall, I would go back there.

Great value for money hotel. Fast free Wi-fi. Clean rooms. The food was not bad either, Decent breakfast spread..

It's located in Södermalm, where the "trendy" bars, eateries and shops are located. The hotel is situated in a quiet surrounding in a park. Secure parking.

Friendly and helpful staff

We also rented bikes really cheap and it is so close to a park and the sea and a huge bathing complex and the metro. It's awesome!!!!!

I spent 3 nights at Zinkensdamm, ona a family trip together with my wife and two chlidren. The hotel has a good location, close to Gamla Stan, Stockholm's old town. The rooms are clean, Internet is fast (both wireless and wired, and there is a short walking distance from the hotel to the Zinkendamm Subway Station. You should however take a longer route along Zinkens Väg if you're carrying your luggage on your way before checking in and when you head for home in the end of your stay, as the shortcut seen on your GPS/map is rather steep and with lots of stairs. The hotel rooms are tidy and the breakfasts are delicious! Zinkensdamm lies in a rather quiet location, though the local youths once played with ball on the street in front of the hotel, 1:30 at night. Still, this can be overcome, as the windows are very well insulated. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Hotel Zinkensdamm is a 3-star Superior Hotel situated in the midst of the picturesque plantation plots by Tantolunden at Sodermalm. Despite the central location, the hotel is surrounded by several green areas which infuse a relaxing atmosphere. The decorations of the hotel rooms are inspired by the old south of Stockholm while still maintaining all the modern facilities. All rooms are provided with private shower and wc as well as a flat-screen TV with free cable channels. Zinkensdamm Hotel can offer a wide range of rooms, from a single room for the lone traveler to a family room to the traveler visiting Stockholm with kindred. The green areas in the area offer lovely jogging tracks and path ways in a cultural-historical environment. Feel free to upgrade to one of our superior rooms and get a mini-bar and tea/coffeemaker in the room. These types of rooms consist of either a double bed or two separate singlebeds. In the morning we set the table for our generous breakfast buffet with scrambled eggs, bacon, yoghurt with berries, soured milk, various types of juices, coffee/tea, freshly baked bread, fruits and a wide range of different cold cuts and spreads to put on the bread. The hotel is constantly being renovated, yet maintaining the special atmosphere of the genuine Sodermalm. ... more   less
