We arrived a little late to this hotel on Ostermalm in Stockholm. We checked in and went to our assigned double room. It was the smallest, even smaller than small ones in Paris! We are not teenagers anymore, and in this room one of us had to crawl over the other side to get into bed, you could not access... More

If you want to experience how it feels like staying at Faulty Towers. Take your chance at Best(???) Western Karlaplan in Stockholm Sweden; rude staff, small but fantastic expensive rooms, outdated standard, swedish staff that does not understood neither scandinavian languages or english, bring your own breakfast if not you"ll starve.

My partner and I stayed here during a conference (this was a booking organised by the university), and we have nothing but good things to say about the hotel's staff. Everyone was friendly, and very accommodating (e.g. providing us with constant supplies of ice). Plus, everything was clean, the shower was lovely and the breakfast was very tasty. However, there...

Hotel close to karlaplan and stadion metro stations. If weather is good, you can also walk to Stockholm centre. Personnel is also very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast is not bad, with possibility of having both a continental or a English one. Single rooms are very small so go for a double one.

There is also a decent shopping centre around the corner with supermarkets, Konditori's, bars etc. Also plenty of restaurants nearby.

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.
