              Extraordinary hotel!”

              We have stayed at many places around the world and Hotel Rival is one that we would come back to. Beautifully planned rooms, whistle clean, great food and cocktails and a staff that is focused on their guests. The location of the hotel is a bit away from the tourist attractions but a short walk to the underground brings the whole city to your feet. The concierge, Shawn, is one of the best we have ever worked with. We highly recommend this hotel.

              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.

              Friendly Staff,Close to Stockholm centre.
              Rooms could be bigger

              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 Rival exceeded my expectations in their customer service. We arrived early in the morning (8:30) after traveling for 24 hrs. Although we arrived expecting to store our luggage while we waited for proper check in time, the very kind employees allowed us to check in early so we could have the much needed nap and shower. We were very grateful. The breakfast served is fresh, diverse and great service. The location is the Soder area with lots of good options for eating and a short walk to the old part of town. Nice park right across the street. Highly recommend this property.

              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!

              Rival Hotel Estocolmo”

              Buen bar, con mucha animación y ambiente Buen restaurante. Elegante diseño interiores
              Habitación bonita i suficinte, PERO..PEQUEÑA I SIN BIDET

              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..
