We have just returned from a very enjoyable 4 night break at the Hilton. The staff were friendly and polite and particular mention must be made of the excellent breakfast. Just about every item of food imaginable was available - smoked salmon with your scrambled egg, just like the queen! Hotel is well situated with impressive views when you are enjoying the high quality breakfast. One criticism - which has already been mentioned, that bath needs a health and safety warning!

The hotel was excellent in every category and cannot be faulted-EXCEPT for the bath! Every time one wanted to get in or out of the bath/shower you risked getting a hernia!How anyone can design such a dangerous bath edge, approximately 14 inches wide, is a mystery.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Hilton Stockholm Slussen Hotel

A good Hilton property located near the Old City

from Flying_Lawyer
My wife and I spent two nights at this property last month. We had a nice room overlooking a canal and over toward the Old City. While a bit on small size by US standards, the room had a king bed and offered enough room to be comfortable. The executive/club floor lounge served a fine breakfast each morning and had a PC with internet access at no cost. When the lounge was closed, a small business center on the main floor offered internet acess via prepaid cards (roughly US$12 for 60 minutes).

The property is well ocated for walking and brousing, but is some distance away from the commercial and shopping centers of the city. The hotel is also a fair distance from the ferry terminals (we arrived on Silja Line from Helsinki) and the cost of a cab ride will come as a bit of a shock.

Our room was very clean, well-maintained each day of our stay, and offered all of the essential elements for a comfortable stay. The only exception was the shower/bathtub, which hada ledge so wide we found ourselves crawling over it in order to get into the shower. Not an "ADA" compliant hotel, that's for sure!

Okiedokie!!

from Topsman
We stayed here for 4 nights beginning May 2006 on our onward journey to Oslo Norway.

Some things you would want to know about the Hotel and Stiockholm -

1. The hotel is a relatively nice property situated 5 minutes from Gamla Stan (Old Town)
2. When we checked into the hotel the receptionist on the desk couldnt speak as good English as we would have liked her to (and I guess she was relatively new as well) gave us stuffy non interconnecting rooms inspite of specifically asking for interconnecting rooms (we have 2 elder girls and a 11 month old baby). After haggling and speaking to 2 officials, we got the needful done and got rooms facing the old city. This is the view you want and no other. The view from the room was worth every penny we spent on this hotel.
3. Stockholm is very expensive. You are easily looking at spending over US$ 80-100 for a meal for 4 at McDonalds or a BUrger King -imagine how expensive a nice restaurant is!
4. Before you arrive at Stockholm or any Scandanavian country, get your alcohol as this is very expensive here. And besides, you dont get alcohol/liquor at shops or convenience stores as you would get in the states or in London. YOu only get alcohol in a government owned store called System Bologet. One of the nearest one is located in Gamla Stan.
5. Dont forget to take your children to Grona Lund. Its the only amusement park in Stockholm and is a wonderful experience for the kids. Also Skansen is amazing!
5. Lastly if you are planning to go to Oslo from here, remember that Oslo is 25-30% more expensive than Stockholm.

Have a good holiday. Cheers!

Very good!

from FlyingFinn
A sofisticated, yet cozy hotel with very modern (though pretty small room). Very friendly service, especially in the breakfast room, good breakfast, great views especially from the public areas, but not from all the rooms.

The location is convinient, especially for tourists (the old town is in front of the hotel) and perhaps for business men, who have their business in the southern part of the town (but it is not far form the centre, either).

The reasons why I did not give 5 points are: the washing basin was a bit broken/unfinished after the renovation; there is no space for your clothes in the closets, so if you are planning to stay long, it will get quite complicated (but the desing of the closets is interesting...), and the bathroom was not well cleaned, and one could clearly smell urine. However, the hotel reacted correctly, when they were told about the cleaning problem.

I liked the place and can easily recommend it.

t stay-Avoid Queen Rooms-Claustophobic!

from jollyjetlaggers
We are avid world travellers and reside in Europe so we are fully aware of the differences in size of hotel rooms but the Hilton should be ashamed for overemphasizing on innovative design and forgetting the need to include comfort and room for hotel guests. We wanted to celebrate our anniversary in Stockholm and chose the Hilton because of its location which is ideal if you want to be at walking distance to Gamla Stan and surrounding areas. Unfortunately, when it came to returning to our Queen room (which was explained is another way of saying "Standard" according to Hilton hotel staff) it was not what we looked forward to returning to lay our weary heads because we got not a wink!

The marble bath is beautiful to look at but attempting to avoid doing the split for one leg to leap over the marble (there are no stairs and you need long legs to get over to get inside the bath or take a shower which did not work) WAS NOT A WELCOMED CHALLENGE. We found a note congratulating us on our anniversary which was appreciated but we were left with one bathrobe. When we phoned to request another bathrobe, it took about 40 minutes for a staff member to bring it to our room so service is not great. The duvet covers are terribly divided into two separate covers which kept sliding off us as we attempted to sleep. The view did not help matters because we had a view of other locals' windows visible enough to see what we were up to so there is no privacy if you want to open the window and the blinds.

We did express our dissappointment to the hotel manager when he asked us as we checked out if we enjoyed the room and told him it was too small for a Queen room and very claustophobic. He acknoweledged that the Queen room is very small and explained that the rooms were designed that way because Stockholm is surrounded by so much water that there is little room for building decent sized hotel rooms! We will believe that the day Paris Hilton stays in a Queen room for a couple of nights but believe she would use the room as storage or a kennel room for her pooch - even the pooch wouldn't want to stay! We stayed for 4 nights too long there and will never stay there again! AVOID IF YOU WANT TO HAVE A ROMANTIC STAY WITH YOUR SPOUSE OR PARTNER OR WANT TO GET A GOOD NIGHT'S SLEEP WITHOUT BANGING AGAINST FURNITURE THAT'S IN THE WAY THE MOMENT YOU OPEN THE DOOR!

Fabulous hotel

from ValBramhall
My daughter and I have just returned from a fabulous weekend at the Hilton Slussen in Stockholm. On arrival we were told we had been upgraded to a penthouse suite which was fantastic with panoramic views over the old town and river. The food was excellent, particularly the breakfast which was included in our room price. The staff really went out of their way to be helpful, offering advice, booking trips and generally making sure we had all the information we needed to explore this beautiful city. The hotel is perfectly located close to the old town and only 10 minutes walk from the main shopping area. We looked at a couple of hotels with much higher ratings on this website whilst there but felt they came nowhere near the standard of the Hilton on any count. We certainly feel our trip to Stockholm was made all the more memorable by staying at the Hilton.

My favorite hotel in Stockholm

from LTobias
I stayed in December 2004 in the Hilton Slussen. I’m often in Stockholm and but this was my first time in this hotel. Booked a twin business room incl. breakfast (Winter Special). My first room was on the 4th floor. Not the best room. It was to near to street that is direct under the hotel.

The next day I had to change my room because of a problem with the shower. The staffs were very helpful and gave me a room on the 5th floor. This room was really better and from the balcony I had a great view to Gamla Stan and Riddarholmen. The bathroom was very beautiful with big mirrors. In the morning you get a very good breakfast with everything you need.

Near the hotel is a underground station, but it’s not far to Gamla Stan.

Terrible room - great hotel

from gssrocks
Paid for suit with view of the harbour, got room with view of walls and construction. However the rest of the hotel was really good, shame the room was so bad

Fabulous!!!

from friedrich dawg
Everything about the Hilton Slussen was great. We used Hilton points and we were upgraded to an executive room with a picture perfect view of the Gamla Stan (Old Town).

Room was a good size. The wood and mirrors and a Nordic look were used cleverly to give a roomier feel. The drawers and closets were tucked away in the built-ins and were spacious. Marble bath was ample.

Snacks and drinks in the clubroom were delicious and varied throughout the evening with a friendly attendant restocking constantly. Breakfast in the clubroom also was very good. The comfort, food and unlimited drinks in the clubroom makes upgrading to an executive suite worthwhile.

All the staff, from the front desk personnel to the maids to the restaurant staff were all professiona, helpful and friendly. We had dinner in the restaurant which was very good and comparable in price to other restaurants in town. We did not use the gym but it seemed to have a variety of machines.

The location is excellent--short walk to Gamla Stan, Norrmalm, and in the opposite direction, the trendy Sodermalm. If you do not enjoy strolling the clean, scenic streets, the subway stop to all points in the city is a block away.

A great hotel in a wonderful city.

Good hotel but they charge for the extras

from notebene
I stayed here on business and had a room on the 4th floor overlooking the river and Gamla Stan (old town). The views were fantastic. Both the room and bathroom were very clean. There was an iron and board in the room which is something that you normally dont get in most Swedish hotel rooms. The food at breakfast is very good but the service could have been better - I had to ask twice for coffee. Breakfast was expensive at SEK 150 ($20/EUR16) especially as you get breakfast at no charge in most Swedish hotels. You need to pay for wireless internet or to use the business centre PC - I would expect this at no cost given the room rates. The hotel is next to a main road and railway. There is very litttle road noise but I was awake early because of the trains. Next time I would probably stay in a downtown hotel.

Very nice hotel if a bit out of the way

from Kenbob
This is a very nice hotel with clean comfortable rooms and nice but small bathrooms. I had an executive floor room which meant that I had use of the Executive lounge for breakfast and dinner drinks. The food served in the lounge was definitely below usual standards (poor selection and not particularly tasty at that).
The location of this hotel is good provided you like to walk. It's perfect for visiting the Old Town as it's just steps away but to visit any of the other parts to the city, you must walk through the Old Town to get there. Also the hotel is istuated on a slight hill which makes it easy when you leave but more difficult when returning after a day of sightseeing.
The hotel staff was very friendly and accomodating.

Top Local Tips for Stockholm

Whiskey bar in Gamla Stan We were there for a birthday celebration and stopped in this bar for a nightcap - the Bollinger was superb. The dry roated peanuts an interesting touch! Loved the oak furniture, laidback, modern atmospehere, friendly Swedish-Geordie gar owner and just the total cool, chic, chilled-outness of it all.

Lovely restaurant in Old Town! I highly recommend Trattoria Romana in the Old Town. A wonderful Italian restaurant with great food and very good service. You find businessmen, families, friends and romantic couples there.You must book a table, more info at www.trattoriaromana.se

Boat Trip I would recommend going on a boat trip, we had one as part of the wedding and it gives you a great and different view of Stockholm
