Cool, comfortable and classy!

Comfortable beds, teddy bear, view
I just loved the Hotel Rival. The rooms ooze fun sophisticated style, and the teddy bear is such a cute addition! The bathroom was lovely and the view from the balcony, overlooking the park in Spring, was perfect. The restaurant blew my mind! I wasn't expecting much, but WOW!! Honestly one of the best meals I've had in years!

Great Neighborhood hotel very close to all the sig

Location, Hotel and room decor, Staff
Stay was great. You can walk to all major sights in the city within 10 to 20 mins anf the location is in a neighborhood with its own character outside the touristy spots. I Would recommend getting the slightly larger room with balcony if you can swing it. Standard room is small but no smaller than other European hotels. Really great stay at Rival..would go back again.

Has no Rival

Friendly Staff,Close to Stockholm centre.
Just 2-3 stops from Stockholm centre and 100yards from the Station is the welcoming Hotel Rival.Check in was fast and easy even though we were early. Great decor throughout the hotel and some interesting pictures. Room was very comfortable with good quality bedding etc., but could be bigger. Free biscuits, coffee and internet was very nice. We had Dinner in the Restaurant and lunch in the bakery, both very pleasant. Breakfast was perfect and a great choice. Sadly no herring which is one of my favourites.Overall a great stay and I would happily return
Hotel Feature Tip: Have a cocktail in the Bar

Rival Hotel Estocolmo

Buen bar, con mucha animación y ambiente Buen restaurante. Elegante diseño interiores
Recomiendo este hotel por varias razones, una de éllas es su situación, bastante céntrico, a unos 5-7 minutos, andando, hasta Slam Gatan. En recepción son bastante amables y casi siempre hay alguno que habla español y los puntos fuertes reseñados, como son el Bar muy animado de ambiente y buen surtido de copas, buen restaurante y elegante diseño y habitaciones muy bonitas PERO pequeñas, al menos las standarts. Como el hotel es del gupo ABBA y antes era un cine, todavía tienen un teatro para unas 700 personas y hay muckas funciones..

vue, calme, architecture

Ein wunderschönes langes Wochenende

Freundlichkeit, Hilfsbereitschaft, Gemütlichkeit; komfortable Betten und angenehme Bettwäsche;
es gibt wunderbar lange Frühstückszeiten und ein tolles Angebot an Speisen; angenehmer Aufenthalt in der Bar mit Musik am Wochenende; ruhige Zimmer mit Balkon und wunderbaren Betten.
Shopping Tip: Södermalm, südlich Folkungsgatan, tolle Second-Hand-Läden und viele Shops

En trevlig vistelse på Hotel Rival

Läget på söder i Stockholm känns bra. Överlag ett gemytligt hotell. Frukosten var härlig. Rummet var jättebra. Garage i hotellet. Bistro, bar och cafe i hotellet som har hög mysfaktor.
Hotellet ger en annorlunda upplevelse än många andra hotell. Entrén ger direkt ett ombonat intryck med mycket tyger och sköna fotöljer osv. Baren finns en trappa upp direkt och det känns mer som om man kommer in i en lounge än i en hotell lobby. Incheckningen gick smidigt. Vi bodde i ett superior rum med fönster och fransk balkong mot innergården. Det var väldigt tyst och lugnt på natten trots att vi hade balkongen öppen, inga störande ljud alls från varken trafik eller festande människor. Rummet var bestyckat med LCD TV och en DVD spelare. Det fanns CD-skivor på rummet man kunde spela och det fanns filmer att låna i receptionen om man nu tycker att TV-utbudet inte räckte till. Det fanns en sladd med "line in" man kunde använda för att koppla in sin MP3 spelare eller dator för att få ut ljudet på TV:n om man vill spela sin egen musik. Hotellet är helt erotik-fritt vad gäller TV-utbudet. Sängen var skön och det var sköna lakan och kuddar. Badrummet var generöst tilltaget och fräscht. Det fanns både ett badkar och en stor separat dusch. Rummet kändes väldigt bra även om jag tycker att en färgsättningen i rummet kändes lite gammal. Frukosten var jättebra, och bästa var att det fanns en meny som ingick i frukosten där man kunde beställa olika rätter och drycker. T.ex. Espresso, Cappucino, omelett, stekta ägg osv. Det finns ett garage i hotellet för 400 kr/dygn man kan använda sig av, men bor man under helgen så är det gratis på söder och det kändes inte jättesvårt att hitta en plats att parkera på. Överlag så kan jag rekommendera hotellet, och kan tänka mig bo där igen.
Restaurant Tip: Resturang il Tempo som ligger 650 meter från hotellet på Hogabergsgatan 40 är hur bra som helst. Ett italienskt ställe med helt rätt atmosfär.
