"Nicely located boutique hotel with nice price"
Enjoyed the hotel. Great location, very nice decor. I'll stay there again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent boutique gem of a hotel"
Loved the hotel. Except the tiny room, it was a gem of a hotel with really helpful staff. A dining room - opening into a cute courtyard where they had a simple but excellent breakfast doubles as a working lounge throughout the rest of the day (lesson to other hotels that cordon off this area after breakfast). Central location, in a residential area […] - easy to reach. Nice! Would recommend and stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location and Price"
Perfect sized room for a single traveler with very nice decor. Literally just minutes away from the center of Stockholm by subway (trains come every few minutes). Staff was very helpful and took the time to help me find a solution to my travel converter not fitting in my rooms outlet. Will definitely stay here when traveling to Stockholm again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"First time in Stockholm"
Nice, helpful friendly staff, great breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Rex is in a good location, just about a 10-minute walk to T-Centralen, or a tad further to Gamla Stan. The room (single with bathroom/shower), though small by American standards, was clean, comfortable, and quiet, had a flat-screen TV, storage, etc. Service was good, and the free breakfast was overflowing and outstanding (plenty of Swedish breads, […] eggs, cereals, meat, cheese, coffee, juice, etc...). In short, a good choice at a decent price. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Centrally located, comfortable, great value"
At first glance, American visitors might think Rex Hotel's rates exhorbitant, but Stockholm's room rates are generally comparable to those of NYC. Rex is ideally located with a helpful and friendly staff, and stylish rooms. The complimentary breakfast would easily cost a quarter of the nightly rate or more for 2 people at a local coffee shop. I will […] definitely book there for my next trip. Small, privately owned, a great home base for your trip. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice breakfast. Location was not bad. Room was very modest. If you your room is overlooking the street, it can get quite loud because of occasional pedestrian and car traffic. I wouldn't stay there again. Little comfort, but OK if you are trying to save money.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Extremely small rooms"
I have never stayed in a smaller room. I had to block the bath room door to be able to open my suitecase. Minimal amenities. Very good Swedish breakfast. Warm boiled eggs otherwise only cold cut. No radio alarm clock in the room. Strange framed photos in the hallways. I found some disturbing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location for the price"
The hotel had a small, family-owned feel. There was a wonderful breakfast room in a covered patio, and the staff was pleasant. It was a little way away from the heart of the city, which made the hotel a bit more quiet.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Another great pick by using Expedia user ratings!"
We got an excellent price, especially for Scandinavia. The room was small, as is typical in this part of Europe, but modern, clean, quiet and functional. Good walking or public transportation access to all of Stockholm. (Two quick stops from the central rail and subway stations.) We chose to walk to see all the museums, old part of Stockholm, etc. (Takes […] 20 - 30 minutes, but safe and interesting.) Great breakfast. Free and functioning wifi. Recommended. Try the raindeer stew or elk burger dinner at their sister hotel across the street - excellent. On the nearby corner is a lunch place with mediteranean food - super healthy salads if you want. One street over is a modern fast food asian place - Yoi - try that too. Very reasonable for healthy food with lots of flavor and vegatables. All these are reasonably priced, as Scandinavia can be quite expensive for food. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice hotel"
All things considered, the hotel is very nice, and I would be willing to return. The rating of "4" is a little low; I believe a rating of 4.3 (out of 5) is more reflective of my experience. I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The complimentary breakfast was nice. The hotel is a short walk from a subway station, which was very helpful […] for my purposes. The only negative aspect is that my room was very small, with little closet space. (The "3" rating on the "Comfort of your room" criterion is due almost entirely to this.) In addition, it would have been helpful to have an iron and ironing board in the room, and only one bath towel was provided. Also, the selection of television channels was somewhat limited compared to the selection available in many hotels. I experienced a wee bit of trouble with wireless internet access. Specifically, I was able to connect to the Internet via wireless access. After shutting down my computer and then powering up again, I had difficulty reconnecting via wireless. However, I had an Ethernet cable with me, and was able to connect to the Internet with no difficulty. (Note: It is possible the trouble I experienced might have been easily repaired. Since I experienced no problems once I used my Ethernet cable, I did not make inquiries concerning the trouble with wireless access.) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Cute, clean, reasonable"
Interesting location - it is not near anything of particular interest, but it is very close to a metro stop which makes it very accessible to everything. "Better" locations are considerably more $$, so we felt it was a good deal. Street is very quiet, our room faced the street and was a lower floor (probably the noisiest spot to be in) and we really […] weren't bothered by any noise. Our room was small but very adequate, clean, with a very modern bathroom. Towels were a little meager, but I saw another guest ask for additional ones and they were provided without hesitation. Breakfast was simple and ample, but a little monotonous if you are staying several days like we did. There were apples available one day only, I would have loved fresh fruit daily. However, for the price it was a good deal, and coffee and tea is available in the lobby all the time. The dining area is very pleasant, an inner courtyard with a glass enclosed room. The staff was wonderful - I cannot commend them enough for making our stay so enjoyable. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"would come back in a heart beat"
Very friendly and helpful staff, location great for walking to sites without being in the middle of the tourist activity, room really quiet and cleaned daily... no complaints here!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Tiny room with charm of a prison cell"
This hotel is a curious mix of the good and bad. The good: very helpful and professional staff, quiet neighborhood, and extremely convenient location. The bad: TINY double room and poor breakfast. Two walls of the bedroom were bare concrete and the other ones were properly finished. It looked as if the room had been renovated halfway. The only illumination […] was a small desk lamp, a small, LED overhead light and a small reading lamp on each side of the bed. The room was always dark, and the reading lights were so far above the bed they were useless. The bed itself was truly uncomfortable. It was the cheapest sort with no support for the mattress at all--essentially a piece of junk with stapled slats that would be found in a thrift store. Finally, the breakfast was truly the poorest I have had at any hotel in some time. It can only be described as meager, cheap, depressing, poorly prepared (unpeelable soft-boiled eggs), and poorly presented. It is apparent that management does not want to spend any money or effort making the Rex Hotel as good or comfortable as its other property across the street. It is the "poor sister." In summary, if you are willing to put up with a sad, small, uncomfortable room and a depressing breakfast in exchange for a good location, then you might be o.k. here. We managed to survive the experience, but I can't say we enjoyed the stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Rex Hotel - reasonable alternative based on cost"
We recently stayed at the Rex Hotel for 3 nights, and in the expensive world of Stockholm hotels, this was a pretty good option for the price. It was neat and clean, and it is close to the T-bana (subway). It's only 2 stops from the Central Station and a couple more to the Gamla Stan (Old Town), and the daily complimentary Swedish breakfast was great […] and a cost saver. However, when they referred to a smaller room with a queen bed, they weren't kidding. Our college sons got the regular room with 2 twin beds, and we got the petite "queen" room - the room wasn't much bigger than the 2 twin beds that created the "queen" bed. They did provide us with a fan when we asked, and they gave us good advice for dining and shopping. They also arranged for a less-expensive taxi for our departure to the airport, but our wake up calls never came - ouch! Thankfully I had set a travel alarm for the early ride to the airport. The majority of guests were college age (including those staying in the Rex Petite Hotel in the basement of our building), so try to avoid a room that faces the street - it was pretty noisy with the window open at night. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Small, unobtrusive, hotel one block off Sveavagen. Easy access to T-bana; walking distance to Sergels Torg. We were three people sharing a room and were very comfortable. No problem with adding an extra bed. We had great weather while in Stockholm and enjoyed breakfast on the open-air patio every morning, but eating in the conservatory would also be […] nice if the weather wasn't perfect. Charming and helpful staff. Would definitely go back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good, ,reasonably priced hotel for tourists"
The Rex Hotel was a good deal in an expensive city. For a reasonable rate in July, we got a spacious room, wifi, and a good breakfast. Also, the metro stop is just around the corner and the neighborhood (Normalm) is safe and has good restaurants for dine in or take away. I would definitely stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay."
We were satisfied with this hotel: - excellent breakfast - wireless internet included - clean decent size room - good location, you can walk to Gamla Stan ~ 15 - 20 min. walkGenuine Expedia guest review
"First Rate Economy Hotel"
We were very pleased with our stay at this small very clean hotel. It is in a tastefully refurbished older building on a quiet side street in a upper middle class neighborhood near the center of Stockholm and only a block away from the main subway system on which the central railroad and bus terminal are only two stops away. Also there are several first […] class restaurants in the vicinity which the staff will point out to you. The floors of rooms and corridors are of new highly polished wood and the walls freshly painted. The rooms and bathrooms are comfortable although a bit, but not uncomfortably small , as in most European non-luxuery hotels. In particular, the bathrooms have been rather stylishly and expensively redone and the rooms have a generous amount of storage space, a writing desk and two chairs. There is free internet access in each room and a flat screen TV with the BBC channel. The breakfasts are generous and served in a pleasanr solarium or in warm wearher on a patio. The staff are youthful and very fluent in English and are very knowledgeableand helpful. The complaint I have is one with all Scandanavian hotels in that a guest must sleep under a duvet (comforter) that is incased in a sheet like a pillowcase. For some people this is too warm, even in winter and one can rarely get a hotel to provide a regular sheet and blanket. Another complaint is the absence of a blackout curtain or shade to prevent one from awakening at the 4:00 AM sunrise in the Summer. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Gem in Stockholm"
Clean, modern design and helpful service. All anyone can ask for in a 3-star hotel in a good neighborhood not too close yet not too far from tourist-filled Gamla Stan.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Rex Hotel - close to what you need"
I read the reviews of the Rex before I booked, and I found them to be very accurate. Sure the room is small, but there is a nice courtyard and a big room for the morning breakfast. The T-Bana (the underground transportation) connects right around the corner from the hotel - buy a week long SL card - and some bus stops are nearby also. Plenty of resturants […] and bars nearby, and you can get to the old town real fast on the green line of the T-bana if you want to go there. (I was at a conference at the University, and bus 70 takes you right there in <15 minutes.) I highly recommend this hotel! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice location, cosy boutique hotel atmosphere"
A very charming boutique hotel. Very well located, and it has a nice atmosphere in general. Clean and cosy. However, my single room was extremely tiny, to the point where I asked the housekeeping service not to clean my room (there was nowhere to re-arrange my things in order for the housekeeper to have room to clean !) - but to just leave clean towels […] in the bathroom. The breakfast was good, but a bit on the impersonal side in terms of staff (cleaning and making noise in a brusk kind of way). Still, overall, a nice location and stay. The price for a tiny single room, however, should be lower. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"An absolute gem!"
Travelling on my own made 'Rex Hotel' the perfect choice. Staff were very helpful upon arrival and throughout the duration of my stay. The hotel was also being enjoyed by couples and families too. The hotel itself was furnished tastefully and my single room included a vey swish wet room. Breakfast was served between 7am and 11am, and there was a great […] variety of continental breakfast good to sample. The hotel itself is probably a 20 minute walk from the old town (Gamla Stan).

"Perfect base for a stay in Stockholm."
Second visit to this lovely hotel which is quite central and very close to a metro station although you can get around many places very easily by foot. We were there for 3 nights and cannot say anything negative about this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Quiet, clean and relaxing stay"
A very comfortable stay. The room was super-clean (I had to retrieve something from under the bed and was happy to see that my shirt was spotless when I emerged from crawling underneath). The rooms were very quiet, I was not disturbed by noise from the neighbours. The breakfast was very good - the breads were delicious!Genuine Expedia guest review

"Good value for money"
My room was not very large but it had everything I needed plus, most importantly, it was clean and quiet with a comfortable bed. Nice selection at breakfast. If I'm being fussy I'd say that it was rather hot in the room - no air con and opening the window meant that the room wasn't dark as blinds are between the window panes and the curtain was more […] a voile.

"Great place to explore Stockholm"
Loved this hotel. Comfortable beds, quiet room...and I mean really quiet because of the very thick walls, and great breakfast. Staff could not have been more helpful. And to top it all off right near the metro station.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Had a few days In Stockholm with friends. Hotel was OK, but compared with the hotel we used the year before, it was quite small and expensive . Breakfast was pretty average, but the place was clean and the staff were friendly.

"Good site seeing base"
Good location, very close to the underground station so you can get to any site fairly quickly. Lots of bars and restaurants near by. Room fairly small, but comfortable and clean. Very little wardrobe space and not much drawer space either. Breakfast simple continential fare, but fresh.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Small basic room but I would go back"
My room was extremely small, and there was very little storage space - but it was very clean, and the bed was comfortable. I had to live from the suitcase as there was nowhere to unpack anything into. But I think this is something that might be expected from this class of hotel - it is after all a 3*. The location was good, having an italian restaurant […] round the corner (don't go there - there was one a quarter mile further in the direction of the stadium which was half the price) and late night supermarkets are very close as well. There is a metro station very close to the hotel. It was quiet. I would recommend it because it is probably good value (I paid as a package with flights). There was an excellent TV in my room and a computer in the foyer which was free to use. The breakfast was good to be included but it was a liittle basic - maybe that's typical for Sweden.

"clean and comfortable"
The hotel was pretty much at the top of our budget so we were looking forward to some comfort and we were not disappointed. Te room had wooden floors which I loved as there was no well used or dusty hotel carpet. Breakfast in the courtyard was lovely.

"Nice place for work or pleasure"
The hotel was in a good location, very close to Radmansgatan metro stop. The hotel is nicely decorated and very comfortable. The breakfast was fresh and had a good range of food on offer.

As I was travelling on business I didn't need to be in the room […] much, but when I was it was perfectly comfortable. Wifi provision was very good. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Solo traveller in Stockholm"
Terrific value. Well positioned with easy access to shops, and not far from Gamla Stan.Genuine Expedia guest review
I arrived in Stockholm whilst it was dark and had fun finding the hotel by foot (it helps to figure out where you are first :-) ). Upon arriving i was greeted by very friendly staff and then made my way to my room. The room was perfectly clean and the bed was incredibly comfy, to the point where i fell asleep still in jeans and a jacket upon laying […] on the bed. The bathroom was amazing with great amenities and good elbow space for shaving, something some hotels lack... Breakfast was your typical buffet breakfast in Europe but did not expect to sit under a glass roof which was a great change for me. Overall, best hotel experience i had whilst travelling around Europe for 7 weeks! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Very helpful staff!"
The Rex was a comfortable little hotel that made our stay in Stockholm very enjoyable. The breakfasts set us up for the day, and the free coffee and computer in the reception where very helpful additions. The one complaint we had was that we had asked for a double bed, and on arrival we had been given 2 singles pushed together. We enquired if this was […] the norm, and the receptionist very kindly offered to move us to a room with a double bed the following day. The 2nd room was lovely and spacious and suited us very well, it did get quite hot some nights but other than that it was perfect! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Comfortable hotel at affordable price"
The hotel is in a quiet location within easy walking distance of the main tourist attractions and has a metro stop very near by. The staff were friendly and helpful . A nice touch is the free tea and coffee in the reception area. We were also able to use the facilities of its sister hotel across the road. The breakfasts were fine-plenty of different […] breads, crispbreads, cheese, eggs, ham and preserves -and (being a tea drinker!) a lovely choice of teas. We always found a seat and never found the breakfast room crowded. Not a luxury hotel by any means but a good , comfortable base for spending a few days in the city.
