I stayed at Hotel Kung Carl for one night during a business trip to Stockholm. Let's start with the positives...the central location was great and the service was really good. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful during my stay. Unfortunately other aspects of the hotel let it down. Whilst the central location was good, it meant that on the Friday night that I stayed, there was a lot of noise from the bars across the street until 2am. Unfortunately the windows don't block out all of the noise so I frequently woke up. Also, the my room was a little worn, dated, and in need of refurbishment. Unfortunately there are other hotels I've stayed at before in Stockholm which I'd recommend over this one. Collapse
Still beautiful and perfectly located

I have stayed here twice before (and reviewed once; all the rooms were completely different), and will agree that if you get one of the small singles, you might feel like you have to go outside to change your mind (forget about opening your suitcase!). Last time I got a room where the bathroom was so small that if you were a tall person you wouldn't be able to towel dry without bruising yourself on the walls. But the place is so charming! This time I got upgraded to a superior room on the second floor (which I think is newly renovated): high ceilings, big windows, beautifully decorated - and a big, beautiful bathroom. I almost didn't want to leave. Renovation of the lobby/bar/restaurant area is done and breakfast is mercifully in one place again so you don't have to complete a treasure hunt to eat. The breakfast staff, however, is still not the friendliest and seem mostly to be waiting for you to leave so they can clean up. Check-in/check-out and storing luggage was super smooth and quick (and both luggage rooms are locked, I saw a review that said otherwise...). Obviously, there are plusses and minuses, but I will most likely come again - for the location and the quirky design of the rooms Collapse

I am glad I booked Kung Carl hotel for our first stay in Stockholm. It's a "hotel de charme", loved the old style feel which goes perfectly well with the building's architecture. The room is tastefully decorated, with three big windows and a beautiful view. The bathroom was small though, but it didn't bother us. The bed is very comfortable and the room is super clean. But the strongest point of Kung Carl is its location. It's so central that you can walk everywhere: to Gamla Stan, to the royal palace and opera, to the port plus it's in the high end district of Stockholm with all the luxury boutiques around, nice restaurants and pubs and even a shopping mall. The location was just perfect and it made our stay very enjoyable. There's is a bus stop a few steps from the hotel, but u won't need it as you can walk everywhere. The breakfast is good and complete but it lacks viennoiseries. The service should be improved. The staff at the reception were not friendly at all, and they don't make any effort to suit your needs. Plus they barely answer when you ask for advice. Same with breakfast staff. I was surprised as Swedish people are usually very friendly. This is not the level of service you expect from a four stars hotel. But the location and the charm of the hotel compensated that and we really enjoyed our stay. Collapse

I'm staying right now at the hotel and if it was not for business for 1 night, I would check out right away, that bad is this hotel. The receptionist is the worst one I have met in my hotelier career and traveling around the world nearly all the year: when we arrived we had 1 room ready for my colleague and second room not, without taking a note of my name or anything, receptionist Daniela said the check in time is 3pm and if anything ready before, then they can give. I sat right next to reception for an hour, there was only other family sitting in the lobby and no one else. Check in policies and timings are understandable as I'm myself work for the hotel chain, but if you see someone falling asleep in the lobby, probably you can as hotel at least try to do your best. After an hour when I approached reception, she made a face like Who are you and asked what's my name? After I gave my name again she said yes there is a room, please pay here. So when I asked if I would not come myself to check, you would not offer me a room, she said there are too many people in the lobby, which is ridiculous as was only me and other family, not to mention that lobby is not more than my room which is hardly 12sqm and not to notice someone sitting next to your desk will be at least ignorance. After I showed that there no one in the lobby and it is pathetic excuse, the next she said that she didn't know my name (I have given my passport at the arrival when she said there is no room). Then I obviously said both excuses are not valid, she never tried to apologize and all her behavior was expressing full disinterest. Having someone like this at the reception would kill any desire to stay at this hotel. Working for hotels for many years I feel deeply sad for owners and management of this property. I would not recommend it to anyone for a stay despite of being in great location. The price is not cheap to pay for such rude service when there were plenty of other options in the city in similar price range. I would close my eyes to such an awful check in (I have started my career in hotels from reception and I perfectly know what's it like to stand and smile, therefore recruiting right people is very important for hotels business), if I would get a room expected from the pictures. The room is nothing like on the pictures on the website, the room I'm staying is super small, probably the pictures needs to be more realistic, there is no such picture of the room I'm staying, the room is hardly 10sqm and bathroom is 1x1.5. I have mentioned that we are on business here and when I enter the room there are 2 soft toys on the bed! Not to mention, till I reached the room, I had to pass (and corridors are also tiny) 2 dirty house keeping trolleys full of dirty sheets and garbage standing completely unattended. I'm only writing it for a benefit of hotel to improve their service as I think their ratings online is highly undeserved. Collapse
Confortable hotel "de charme", nice location
Stay Date: 05/2017, Annick D wrote this review.
Great location (in the center of Stockholm); good value. Very nice breakfast. Have family rooms -- nice decoration. Mix of business people and tourists even if we thought there were to many "business" men/women). Small fitness room.
