        Charming / pleasant and affordable. Located in a historic and cozy part of town with cafe's /shops /retaurants /bars. The hotel had wonderful reception and a great breakfast.

      • Single

        Breakfast and particularly the homemade orange juice, priceless item in Europe.

        There was no bar to have a glass of wine.

        I stayed at a single room for two nights. My room was on 4th floor and I was very glad that there was a lift to take me up with my stuffed suitcase. The lift was tiny, but I liked its old-style feel. Free Wi-Fi access in the room, good smoked salmon and tasty Scandinavian-style marinated fish at the breakfast buffet, just a few minutes walk from the nearest metro station to the hotel.

        One of the rubber piece at the bottom of shower hatches(? doors) was broken and left unfixed when I arrived. So, I had to be careful not to make the water goes through from the gap between the door and the floor when I had a shower. That was the only thing, really.

        Our room was very comfortable with lots of room to stash all you unpack. There are two terraces with comfortable seating available to guests. The breakfast buffet was bountiful and delicious. The location cannot be beat!

        Being one street off a very lively shop and restaurant area has one disadvantage: noise! Warm weather meant open windows and the long hours of daylight meant people out and partying at all hours.

        Great location, breakfast, comfortable and quiet room, modern bathroom

      • Older travelers
        7.8

        Very well located towards the southern end of Gamla Stan (almost opposite Systembolaget!). Old building skilfully converted. Our room was on the ground floor facing the street but we suffered no external noise. Excellent breakfast included in the price included freshly squeezed oranges. Friendly staff.

        Great breakfast. Coffee always available. Attractive decor

        No space for clothing and other belongings.

      • Older travelers

        The hotel was close to the t station and the breakfast and afternoon tea/coffee was exceptional. The room was lovely.

        We were there over the Summer Solstice holiday and the street partying all night long was very noisy keeping us awake. While the weather was cloudy and cool,the room was very warm with no AC--hot weather might be a problem.

      • Family with children
        9.6

        The hotel is very successfully located. A building ancient. Numbers very cozy. Atmosphere has to rest after long day. The parking isn't present, but there is a service to drive away your car on a parking. Very conveniently. A breakfast good.

      • Older travelers
        7.4

        Best part of staying at the Rica is its location in Gamla Stan - the old city. It is within easy walking distance of many places. The restaurant includes a good buffet breakfast. It doesn't have any of the amenities of a large modern hotel but that is part of the charm of staying in the old city.

        Fortunately the weather was not hot during our stay so we had our windows open for fresh air. During hot spells it may become a little uncomfortable for people expecting air conditioning.

        Very friendly and helpfull staff, perfect situated in the city center

        Wide selection at the breakfast buffet but unfortunately in a room without any windows, my single room was very, very small but had all comfort I expect from a Rica Hotel, would definitifely go there again!

      • Group of friends
        8.8

        Perfectly located in the very center of Stockholm, nevertheless quiet; near underground. We had a very nice room on the 4th floor, next to the roof terrace which is also great. Breakfast was abundant.

        The only thing to say is that space is scarce. We had a tiny bathroom and also the breakfast room was quite small.

      • Older travelers
        7.8

        The hotel was very centrally placed in the Old Town, ideal for restaurants, sight-seeing, shops. It was also close to the metro.

        The breakfast room was quite small and unable to seat all guests at once. We sometimes had to wait, or return later. However, the breakfast buffet was very good.

      • Single
        7.4

        location is great, takes about 15mins from central station. And only 7,8 mins to the palace. Great staff, no waiting time.

        Very small room. Comfortable enough for a weekend trip. Not a perfect place to any longer stay.
