Really nice room especially for couples (we chose the junior suite). Nice bar and staff. Breakfast was a good selection ideal for a long day exploring Stockholm. Staff were really helpful. Location is great, Vasastan has some wonderful restaurants. No complaints at all.

Date of stay: February 2016

Hotel Hellsten is definitely a good place to stay. The neighborhood is safe and inviting with many small cafes and restaurants and within walking distance to downtown Stockholm. At this point I would like to mention Filip, who has helped me with a parcel shipping after my stay. The rooms are very Swedish, small but with a lot of charme. Breakfast variety is good but needs a bit more care and personal touches.

Room tip: Avoid rooms facing the breakfast area

The layout of rooms and access can be awkward as it is a set of old buildings made into a hotel. Rooms are reasonable; bathrooms are update and modern; staff are pleasant and helpful; there is coffee/tee available in the small lobby; breakfast selection is excellent; it is close to a Metro stop so getting around on Stockholm's excellent transit system is helpful. Cons - elevator wasn't working for 2 days... and they didn't offer to help with our suitcases up 4 flights of stairs; it doesn't have a lot of character; didn't see many bars/clubs nearby, if that is your priority.

Room tip: Ours faced the courtyard, but it is a quiet neighbourhood. Higher the floor, the better the view.

Dear davethornhill,

Thank you for sharing your thoughts about your stay. We appreciate your feedback, it helps us to strengthen our weaknesses.

We're glad to hear that you liked our breakfast, your room and the friendly staff. We're located in a beautiful building dating from 1898 and the rooms have all been renovated with their own individual style, décor and planning.

I am very sorry that the elevator was out of order during your stay. It is now working again but we should have offered help with your luggage and will revise our routines.

Very welcome back to us if you visit Stockholm again!

Kind regards,
Matilda Sjöberg
Marketing Coordinator

Comfortable hotel in a good location, within walking distance of Stockholm's city centre and the Gamla Stan. The staff at the hotel were really fabulous. They were all very friendly and extremely helpful in giving advice and recommendations.
