We stayed in Rica Hotel Stockholm in early January 2012 and loved the easiness of the location of the hotel but not the hotel itself. The room we got was in the second floor and facing the hotel's Winter Garden where the breakfast was served. The hotel room was tiny and it was very difficult to move around. The bed wasn't comfortable at all and the A/C was the loudest ever. The only way to get some sleep was to switch it off for the night. The only good thing about the room was the bathroom which was a lot better than the room itself. And the room was quiet which was nice too.
The breakfast wasn't at all spectacular and we have both had better breakfasts for example in many chain hotels in Finland. One of us needs gluten free breakfast and the bread served espeacially on the first morning was poor. The second morning was a bit better but when we asked the staff whether some of the items at breakfast were gluten free the reply was I think they are, which wasn't assuring at all.
The hotel is very convenient for a traveller needing a good base in central Stockholm (it was easy to go back to the hotel and take our shopping there and continue seeing the town) but I am sure there are better choices in central Stockholm that cost approximately the same as Rica Hotel Stockholm and we would not consider this hotel again while visiting Stockholm.
