"Great bar scene, functional rooms"
The receptionists were very friendly (if a little slow) and the hotel is excellent value for money. It is situated in a fantastic central location, close to Berns bar, and has a nice bar next to the entrance.
"Good sleeping, but disappointed overall"
I was on a 10-day long trip and this was my last stop. All day I took the train thinking about the nice hot bath I was going to take (I'd checked the room photos before I booked and they showed a bathtub)... but I got here and no bath. Not only that, but my view consisted of a brick wall. This was for a Carlson club gold elite member, supposed to get room upgrades. This is how they treat their best members' The room came with an American Express $75 food credit but there is NO vegetarian main dish on their menu. On the upside, the bed is very comfortable and the room was quiet so I got a decent sleep, even with my aching back that longed for a nice hot bath....
"Great location for a good (not great) hotel"
There is a lot to like about the Radisson Blu Strand - it is by the water in central Stockholm, with lovely views across the water. I had a room in the newly refurbished part of the hotel, which was great: modern, well-designed, comfortable beds and with good facilities. However, I personally don't like hotels that have inconsistent room options - so whilst the "new" wing is lovely, I'm not sure that is the case for the whole hotel. I had one of the best room service meals I've ever had here - except the dirty tray was still sitting outside my room 14 hours later when I checked out. Breakfast, as others have said, is a bit chaotic. There were dirty dishes on multiple tables and not very many staff. The selection is good if you like pastries and meat/fish for breakfast - but hot options were quite limited. Checking out at 9.30am was slow as well - with only one person on the front desk and a queue of impatient business travellers waiting to leave. Overall, I liked the hotel - it was good but not great. The staff were lovely but could be better at things like clearing up dirty dishes etc.
"Wonderful staff and location"
Thank you to the team at the Radisson Blu Strand Hotel in Stockholm. Beside the perfect location for tourists as well as business travelers the staff made me feel very welcome. There was an issue with the air conditioning in the room I was assigned, but the staff solved it very quickly. As we say in marketing and communications: An arising issue is a chance to win or lose a customer for life. You did great! I'll be back!
"Impressive building and good location, but rest is pretty average"
I stayed in this property for a few nights while on business in Stockholm. Location is good and within close proximity of many of the tourist sights and also local transportation. The building is impressive and really stands out. However, the interior is a bit tired and is in need of an upgrade. I think I noticed a sign mentioning that there is a renovation planned which is good. Im sure that this will make a big difference. Checkin was uneventful. Staff polite and friendly. My room was extremely small. Now I was alone on business and did not really need much more than a bed but anyway. Equipped as expected. No shaving or dental kit provided so remember to byo. Breakfast was pretty nice with the expected selection, minus manual egg station. Nicely decorated breakfast room.
