Neighbourhood
Vasastan
Vasastan is one of those neighborhoods that almost looks too good to be true. It has the winning combination of a central location, tranquility, and beautiful buildings – housing sophisticated bars and eateries – that makes this neighborhood Stockholm’s most sought-after place to live. If walking through this area makes you feel like walking through a fairy tale or picture book it’s no surprise, as it’s actually the film set of the famous Swedish children story Karlsson-on-the-Roof. No matter what season, Vasastan manages to impress in the sunshine, covered in snow and won’t even lose its charm when soaked in rain.

The hotel is well located and there is a good choice at breakfast. I booked a single room. Apparently there is a classification called small single in this hotel. What this means is a tiny room with a smaller than standard single bed with the bed wedged into an alcove. I did

Dear k g, Thanks for your review! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the location of the hotel as well as the breakfast. The size of the beds in the room category Small Single is 90 cm, a standard single bed. In the Standard Single rooms the beds are 105 cm. We are glad that the second room fulfilled your expectations better. Welcome back! Kind regards, Maria Kahem, Hotel Manager

Rex Hotel has excellent customer service and their attention to detail given that level of hotel was great. It is by no means a luxury accommodation, but we appreciated the complementary tea and coffee in the lobby, warmed floors in the bathroom, and superb breakfast. The food

Dear Christian K, Thank you for taking the time to send us your review! We are glad to hear that our staff made a good impression on you. Sad to hear how you experienced the furniture in your room. The idea of the interior is antique furniture from all the world with a modern mix of new furniture. We hade hoped that you talked to our front desk team who could have shown you another room with another décor that might have suit your expectations better. Welcome back! Kind regards, Maria Kahem, Hotel Manager

It is located in a very good location, 2 mind away from a metro station. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. The breakfast was really good and the room was very clean. Also, the dinner at the Earth Bar was great. The only drawback was that the room was a bit cold, even though

Dear Seaside65651731866, Thanks for your review. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed the location and neighbourhood of the hotel as well as the breakfast and food in Hellsten Earth bar. Since the hotel is located in a building from the 19th century it takes some time for the heaters to kick in when the temperature goes up and done as it did in December during your stay. Hope to see you soon again, welcome back! Kind regards, Maria Kahem, Hotel Manager

Take either the Arlanda Express or the Fly Bus to Stockholm's Central Station. The bus is much cheaper, but takes longer. From there you can either walk of take the Underground (T-Bana) to the Rådmansgatan stop, which is what I did. From there it's only a short walk to the hotel.

We were travelling thru Arlanda so don't know, unfortunately. The hotel were very helpful and if you e-mail them direct they would probably offer you a suggestion.

Hi, best way is to take a cab. We recommend a company called "Airport cab" or also "Taxi Stockholm". See more info on our website for more options: under "Location" Welcome!
