Stayed 6 nights in September 2018

Wifi was very poor”

I was quite happy for the most part of my stay at the BW Karlaplan, but I cannot say YES to recommending the hotel for one very big reason (which in 2018 is very important to people). I am not sure if it was the location of my room or this was a hotel-wide issue, but the wifi kept dropping out constantly during my stay. On top of that I had to log into the wifi everytime I used it, and sometimes while I was using it if it dropped out. The wifi for some reason did not recognise me, so I had to re-enter all my credendtials. The wifi was not even secure, and I was given details for no reason as the wifi was an unsecured open wifi that anyone off the street could connect to. I was completing very important work during my stay, so that is why the wifi was so important to me.

A bit expensive for what you get”

I liked the hotel. I really did. It had a lot of personality, it was very quiet, and the location was pretty good (close to a mall and a subway stop, about 20 minutes from Skansen and about 30 minutes from Gamla Stan). There were a few issues however. First of all, the room itself was rather small. No room even to walk around. Second, no air-conditioner or refrigerator. That's not a bad thing, just something that I personally look for in a room. The breakfast buffet was okay, but not worth the money I paid for it. Finally, whoever was cleaning the room did a very half-hearted job. They made the bed and that was it - nothing else. They didn't even wipe down the sink a single time in my five day stay. Not a bad hotel, but even for expensive Sweden, I don't think it was necessarily worth the price.

breakfast, tidy room, close to metro

When I booked this, this hotel was the one of cheapest in Stockholm that had Internet and had a reasonable rating. It was still very expensive. The dinner was included, but to our surprise, when we arrived they said we could have breakfast included too. Dinner was a poor quality self-serve dinner. Two of the 3 nights all I had was a cheese, tomato and cucumber sandwich as I didn't eat the meat served and that was the only other thing available. Breakfast had much more variety. Internet was slow (sometimes non-existent), no kettle included (had to ask for one) and bed was two single beds pushed together. Comfortable, but two metro stops from centre of town, so in my opinion, we could have done better.
