Nice hotel

Posted Jul 6, 2017
Pros: Nice staff, fairly large, clean room, English language TV channels, very good breakfast buffet.
Cons: Have railing for hanging clothes.
Location: Restaurants, cafes less than 5 minute walking distance from hotel, as well as public transportation - There is a subway station and a bus hub
Although this is a budget hotel, the room is fairly large and clean. The double glazing on the window kept out the loud traffic sounds from the main street outside. The roof-terrace is rather nice, and the hotel gives you passes to the nearby fitness centre. The breakfast buffet has large selection, and the 24 hour coffee/tea and cookies near the front desk is a rather nice touch. There are hiking and biking trails nearby. The only thing I feel the room lacked is somewhere to hang my clothes. There were shelves for smaller items and lots of hangers, but no railing to use the hangers. On the whole, First Hotel is nice, the front desk staff friendly and the location convenient.

Location and good staff

Posted Feb 26, 2017 on Hotels
Proximity to T-bana and friendly staff are the reasons I chose this hotel during my second Stockholm visit. Hotel is going through some renovation and can hear lots of noise if you are in room during day time. If you stay at 5th floor, there is a patience testing machine in hotel - the elevator!! Breakfast is quite good and staff are very friendly, they are ready to help you on any possible things they can. Even they surprised me with gift chocolates on a weekend and valentine's day too.. Thank you

Dear Ram, We thank you for choosing to stay with us on you second time here in Stockholm and also for taking the time to give us feedback on your stay. As you mention we are doing some renovation and we hope to be finished soon. Regarding the elevation we apologize, the hotel is built in the 1950´s and so is the elevator. We are so glad that our staff made your stay great and we hope to welcome you back soon again. Kind regard Michaela, reception

Very helpful and friendly staff, good location - easy access to metro transport facility. Room is bit small and lack of wardrobe in room is a concern.

Good location for budget hotel

Posted Sep 14, 2016
Pros: location and cost
Cons: had issues with towels and soap not being replaced
Location: 2 min from subway
This is a spartan but clean and reasonably comfortable hotel in a convenient location. Good for travelers not planning to spend much time in the room. Single rooms are small but bed was fine and bathroom was not overly cramped. I would stay there again for business travel given cost and location.

A cozy corner to relax in Bromma ....Stockholm

Posted Sep 11, 2016 on Hotels
Stay was comfortable although I would have liked an airconditioner - central or room as the room being small was getting stuffy after a while ...However the sheets and linen as well as the toilet was absolutely clean and fresh ..The cost for the 2 day stay - was on the expensive side given the infrastructure of the hotel.

Thank you very much for your feedback. Since we always strive to give the best service possible your feedback will help us with this goal. The hotel is built in the 1950´s making it impossible for built-in air conditioning but we will gladly provide a fan for your next visit. Hope to see you soon! Best regards Michaela, receptionist

Good hotel near Brommaplan

Posted Aug 10, 2016
Pros: It was clean and everything worked.
This is a decent hotel that is not over 150 meters from a main rail and bus terminal, Brommaplan. There's a straight shot to downtown on the T-Bahn green line and there's also a Airport buss that leaves regularly. The staff was helpful and pleasant. The facilities were in good repair. Like most older buildings a one bed room is small. The plumbing worked and the hot water worked well. Internet worked well. I have a tricky back and the bed was good. Overall it's a pretty good hotel for the money.
