Historical Traveller Reviews of Hotel Birger Jarl
Breakfast had loads to chose from and we never had trouble finding a seat. The restaurant was also really good. Not cheap and the one night we ate there we felt like we were being a bit boring staying in the hotel but it was the best meal we had. Traditional swedish food really well prepared. The staff were friendly and helpful. Make sure you get a good deal - give Cresta a go - but nothing to complain about here.
Superb Hotelfrom pathos
Cleverly designedfrom StelG
The town centre and Old town were around 20 min to half an hours walk away nice chance to explore the indoor and outdoor foodmarkets near the Opera. The bus stop was practically next door so it was easy to hop on a No 2 bus down to waterfront, Old town and beyond. Reccomend venturing over to Sodermalm to eat in the PELIKAN Blekingegatan 40 a tradional beerhouse restaurant very reasonably priced. Don't miss the Vasa museum and Skansen open air museums.
Good 3-Star in Quiet locationfrom UKnative
I did however find the breakfast restaurant over-crowded with diners acting like vultures over a carcass. On the first morning I couldn't find anywhere to sit, so after that, I ventured to get to breakfast early by 7:15 in order to find a table and eat in some civlised style. I may have just been unlucky with bus parties. But apart from the restaurant being too small for the number of rooms, the choice of foods was excellent - even providing their version of cooked fare.
The location is quiet with not much happening but it is only a few metres from the No 2 bus stop that takes one to Gamla Stan and beyond. Also two metro stops are close by and Odenplan up the street is full of activity.
not a 4 star hotelfrom durbs111
Good points - tasty breakfast, good quiet location, amazingly comfy bed, funky decor.
Bad points - the rooms are TINY!....couldn't swing a mouse, let alone a cat. The soundproofing isn't great, so you can hear a lot of noise from other rooms. Bathrooms and in-room facilities are very basic. Don't expect things like robe and slippers like you'd normally get in a 4 star hotel. Hotel bar is expensive, but drinks aren't cheap anywhere in Stockholm.
If you stay at this hotel, make sure you've got a very good price, no ways is it worth the standard pricing. Also don't expect 4 star-type service, or you'll be dissapointed.
On positive - can recomend 2 great very local restuarants - Haket (very local and value for money), and Hoffmans (bit more expensive but also just 2 min up the road). Ask the hotel for directions.
Smaller than expected.from Photopedia
As is often the case, the publicity photos portray a hotel and a bedroom that is much bigger than the real thing. This is a clean, pleasant, modest, 3 star hotel, not 4 star. Friendly and comfortable but nothing special.
I had a standard double room which was small by international standards. The double bed was very comfortable but too big for the room so it had to be placed obliquely across the floor space to fit in. I would certainly ask for an upgraded room unless you're the size of an Irish leprachaun!

Enjoyed staying at Hotel Birger Jarlfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Great hospitalityfrom NSHP
Rooms were small, but extremely clean, quiet and comfortable and great value (working out at £75 pp for 2 nights in total). The breakfast was great and the staff very friendly, they even waived the 1 night cancellation fee for one member of my party who could not come away.
It was the 1st European hotel I have stayed at in a long while that was not a rip off.

Top Local Tips for Stockholm
Visit Stockholm Visitez Stockholm quelques jours, c'est une superbe ville pour les promenades, musées, shopping,resto. Tout me semble fait pour faciliter la vie, je ne parle pas suédois, seulement un peu l'anglais, et je me débrouille bien dans le métro ou le train. Les gens sont sympa, cool, calmes.
Gondolen Lfit & Restaurant Take the trip up on the lift to experience the magnificent views over Stockholm, and then treat yourself to a meal at the restaurant that feels like you are suspended over the water. The food is wonderful, the wine sublime, and the service second to none. Not a cheap night out but worth the treat.
stockholm card get one of these before you go. means that you get transport and entrance to museums/palaces for free.
