    « Not as good this time... »

    This is the second time I have stayed, first time 6 months ago I gave a brilliant review, this time it wasn't as good. The room was very worn, bedding was torn, curtains were stained with what looked like blood... and the toilet seat was not cleaned. A shame because like I said, the last stay was excellent. There were a number of things still brilliant however, the breakfast is always fantastic, good courtesy bus to the airport, front desk are always helpful and the room was well heated as it was snowing and freezing cold this was essential! I would consider still staying again.

    « Not convincing. »

    I've been there for one night. The layout is a bit unusual. lobby/restaurant together in one building. All room outside spreaded in some outbuildings (dépandance), looking like prefabricated houses. like a motor hotel. Not the best with bad weather. I didn't get the feeling of very clean rooms (dust, spots on floor,...), at list mine. I tried the restaurant for dinner but both apertized and main course were not satisfactory. Carpaccio as entree with overkilling truffle smell and salmon (small) and crousted. Breakfast was fair. Also bar and fitness room not bad. Good welcoming service at the bar and lobby. In the end, I cannot say it's a bad place, but I was not incentivized to return.

    « Perfekt at early departure from Arlanda »

    Friendly staf, both when booking on phone and at reception desk. The breakfast is one of the best I have had on hotell, a pity I had to leave so early so that I couldent enyoj it in maximum. A great advantage with the possibility of the long term parking.

    « Very good stay. »

    Stayed here for three days while visiting the city and getting ready for our cruise to leave. Rustic atmosphere with excellent breakfast. Room is small but comfortable. Staff friendly and helpful. No local restaurants so either eat in the dining room or catch the bus to local town of Martas. Overall very good.

    « Upgraded room desperate for a coat of paint, restaurant over priced with incredibly slow service »

    Reasonable price for an airport hotel. I have stayed here many times and usually in one of the stand-alone buildings. This time I have a "free upgrade" to an executive room but in all honesty it looked like it hadn't had a coat of paint inside for 20 years, with big scratched on the walls, etc, etc. (room 304). To me the non executive rooms are much nicer. Menu choice at the restaurant is poor and grossly over-priced. The service was also terribly slow even at a quiet period. Tried to catch the waitress's eye to order a 2nd drink several times but they were in their own little world. Eventually I gave up and paid my restaurant bill at the bar. It is an OK place to stop of for an early morning flight but expect to pay high prices for poor service and aged rooms.

    « Arlanda, Sweden »

    Great place for a quick stop in Sweden when need to be near the hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff. Allowed us to check in in the morning after flying all night. I would definitely stay there again. Wish I had more time

    « Quiet »

    A nice and quiet stay. Breakfast starts at 4am. which was good, we had a 4:30am pick up for Arlanda airport. Breakfast was good. If you are going to have Dinner, your best deal is the daily suggestion. We had this and was pleasantly surprised, our last stay we had a nice cut of beef that was over cooked. Not very good.

    « Good place to rest before a flight »

    Stayed at this hotel for one night only since I wanted to catch a flight the next morning. My room was simple but clean and the bed was comfortable. I had a meal in the evening which was reasonably good. Drinks at the bar were expensive. Very good breakfast in the morning but the girl at reception needs to learn some manners and be more friendly with the guests.

    « Perfect before or after a flight »

    A perfect hotel to use the night before an ealy flight. Airport pick up service is excellent. Litle long waiting time. Good breakfast, suits early morning flights. Dinner and beverages are available. Car parking if you don' go by train and golf is extra bonus.

    « Interesting Hotel »

    We stayed here for one night, to catch an early flight. The rooms were cozy and clean; albiet a little old. With cold weather and snow outside, the room was always nice and warm. The rooms are "apartment style" with separate little buildings that a guest would walk up to (outside), or drive direclty up to. The breakfast was huge, with many various Swedish foods and dishes. A good place to stay for Arlanda travelers.

    « Close to airport, free shuttle »

    Good stay for a night. Rooms are big and comfortable. I found them cosy too. Limited options in dinner but the food preparation was good. I loved the cesar salad. Breakfast spread was huge and it was the best I had in Stockholm. The shuttle to the airport runs every half hour and is an amazing service. I would like to thank my shuttle driver who helped us when I forgot my purse at the hotel. He brought us back to the hotel and gave us support when we were panicked to the core. Thank you so much!

    « Not an Option I would Choose Again »

    Room did not meet the expectations as reviewed previously on multiple internet sites. Room was extremely warm with no regulation of temperature possible, no A/C. Only opening a window was possible and that allowed mosquitoes. Room was small appx. 12X15 + a reasonable size bath. Room had NO Safe - travelers carry money and a Safe is a must!! Beds sucked - just no other way to say it. Two single size beds with horrible spring mattresses, not double or queen shown on internet. Very poor back support!! Hotel is multiple units with 4 rooms in each, two upstairs, two downstairs. No elevator and access to upstairs is a spiral metal outdoor staircase, just great for dragging luggage?? They do offer luggage storage at the office however it is not practical when traveling. The motel is in an industrial area, nothing else around but industrial sites. No restaurants, snack places, stores - nothing. Just the Best Western Hotellby?? You are captive in my view!! They do offer a GREAT shuttle service to the airport where you can find other services, restaurants etc., but it means waiting for the bus schedule to meet yours. The restaurant has a very limited menu and the burgers and fries were the most tempting to me. At 179 Krona it was an expensive meal for burgers. They had one waitress doing everything so she got busy and preoccupied. Beer and Soda was also very high priced as I saw it. The breakfast buffet was very good however, good choices and was free!! I usually do not get attracted to Best Western Motels and this did not assist there standing with me. It was just the best option that I could find on the internet for this trip. I realized when we were there that there were much better choices.

    « Good hotel when having an early flight from Arlanda »

    We almost always stay at this hotel when we have an early flight from Arlanda. The fridge in the room is a great bonus and one of the reasons why we stay here. The breakfast buffé is average. If everything that is supposed to be there would be there I would say breakfast if good but unfortunately items are not always replaced within a reasonable time. Usually the staff is friendly. The rooms are clean even if we have noticed that they do not clean behind/under furniture on a daily basis.

    « Convenient, comfortable, close to Arlanda Airport »

    This hotel fits the bill for an early Arlanda flight, as other reviewers note, with a wonderful breakfast buffet and a free shuttle to the airport. Sleeping rooms are in several buildings in a campus-type arrangement. Our room was comfortable, clean, with a large flat screen TV, free Wi-Fi, and a large bathroom with shower. Like most Scandinavian mid-range hotels we experienced, liquid soap/shampoo is provided in dispensers, but not shampoo, conditioner, lotion. This was not a problem, but if you need them bring yours along. Breakfast was included, a generous buffet with many selections of eggs, fruit, pastry, bread and cheese in addition to coffee, tea, and juice in the lobby dining area. The only difficulty we encountered was that our room was on the second floor of a nice, motel-type building that had only an outside spiral staircase (no elevator), and this was difficult to navigate at night with heavy luggage. Once in the room all was fine.

    « Excellent for a day stay near Arlanda »

    If for some reason you need to stay around the Arlanda airport, then this hotel is a good one to choose. It has nice rooms in the greens, with each room having enough green area around and parking is right in front of the room. The restaurant server very good quality buffet breakfast and good meal in general. It has a very nice gym and the staff is very cordial and efficient. Everything is just good in this hotel.

    « Just the place for an early flight »

    This is the perfect place to stay when one has an early flight from Arlanda Airport, Stockholm. A free bus runs from each terminal to the hotel every half hour, and vice versa. The check in and restaurant staff were welcoming and efficient. Many of the rooms are in "houses" with four rooms in each house. Luckily, I was in a ground floor room, so did not have to carry luggage up a narrow spiral staircase. The room was very clean, but could do with a makeover. The wifi was free and efficient. There was plenty of variety for breakfast.

    « Breakfast was the best. »

    If you need a hotel to stay by the airport without the European charm, this may fit your bill. They have a regular shuttle too and from the hotel and a wonderful breakfast including freshly baked breads and a nice variety of items. The room is a typical BW although the bathroom was nicely appointed. They do provide bottled water free of charge and the service was excellent. We ate at the on-site for dinner and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of food and the dinner service - just not any atmosphere.

    « California resident »

    This was one of the nicest of any Best Western Hotels I have ever stayed at. The Facility was beautiful with all the cottages, picnic area. Hotel lobby exceptionally large and very well decorated. The breakfast was by far the best breakfast of any hotel I have ever stayed at including some upscale hotels.

    « This is it. Super convienient & Perfect for Departure/ Arrival. »

    The free shuttle service is superb, the rooms are nice and clean with Wifi and TV. Free bicycles are available to explore the area, and we enjoyed doing just that. Food is very good both for dinner, and the breakfast that come with the room.

    « Decent hotel »

    We stayed here for two nights and took the train to Stockholm for sightseeing. The room was very clean and had a tea kettle for hot water. The room was very hot even though we turned down the heater and opened the window. Maybe the heat was coming from the room below us? The hotel consists of many buildings with 8 rooms each. Be aware that there is a narrow spiral staircase to get to the second level. It was a bit difficult to get our luggage up the stairs. We ate dinner at the restaurant and the burgers were very good. The breakfast had a huge selection of fresh foods. The hotel to airport shuttle left 1/2 hour and was on time. The only inconvenience that we experienced was that the wifi was incredibly slow most of the time we were there.

    « OK for staying overnight »

    Ok low cost alternative to hotels close to the terminal. Surprisingly nice restaurant. Beware of rooms on second floor i you have much luggage; stairs are very narrow. Bus service to Arlanda every 30 minutes. (Not 10 as Arlandia.) You get what you pay for.

    « Decent..!!! »

    Shuttle service from airport every half an hour.. Good hotel.. Very convenient for a one night stay.. Good spread of breakfast.. Nice property.. Rooms very crammed but bed is really nice and cozy.. Will recommend if u have just a night to stay near the hotel..!! A tad bit expensive for the price it charges..!!

    « Excellent Hotel »

    I had a great experience at this hotel. I flew into Stockholm in the evening. The hotel shuttle was right on time, the room was nice and clean. I met some great people in the lobby that night, the receptionist knew my name when I signed in which was a nice gesture. They immediately upon checking in signed me up for the hotel shuttle the next day which ran right on time as well. The only thing I can say that is at all negtive is just that this hotel is not really by any shops or markets or anything where you could have a choice to just grab something quick. There is a restaurant on the premisis though. Over all for a one night layover near the airport it was the perfect place to stay. The breakfast was excellent as well.

    3
    « Convenient »

    I spent all of maybe 5 hours in the Best Western. The only reason I chose to stay here was because I had an early morning flight. The shuttle bus was prompt, but due to construction, the bus stop at the terminal had no shelter. Waiting in the rain at 10 pm in April is no fun. The check in process was fast and the staff was friendly. All of the rooms are spread out over the property in small little 2-story cottages. Which means finding your room in the dark and in the rain was also not fun. My room held 2 surprises for me. In the closet hung a pair of men's pants and some dirty socks. And my room smelled like poop. I didn't investigate to see if those 2 things were related. I was so cold, wet, and tired that I ignored both of those things. There was also still food in the mini fridge. It really made me doubt how well my room had been cleaned. The sheets and towels were folded and appeared clean, so I went with it. Had I checked in 4 hours earlier or known I would get to sleep late, I'd probably had trudged back up hill in the rain to the front desk to get a clean room. I wouldn't stay here again.

    « Fast service and good breakfast »

    Fast check in, good beds, parking outside the room. Good breakfast. To bad we had to check out a day early and still pay for the last night. But overall, a good hotel that was really close to our seminar.

    « value for money »

    This is a very comfortable hotel if you have a very early flight leaving Arlanda or you arrive very late to Sweden. The breakfast is very nice and served from 04:00am. There is a shuttle bus taking you to the airport. The service is good and the staff are nice

    « GREAT TO-AND-FROM AIRPORT »

    I have stayed here a couple of times before departure and after arrival at ARN (Stockholm, Arlanda Airport). Very convenient and clean for the one night you need to rest after arrival or to prepare to depart the next morning. Restaurant is great for breakfast or dinner. Staff is very helpful and it is a quick drive to or from the airport.

    « The typical austere, old a poor services Scandinavian hotel »

    I have seen much better three stars. This is old, crap breakfast and crap service. It is close to nothing so no choice for food. All is cheap. Maybe the ibis nearby is better (but not sure) All in all, a good picture of Sweden. I have seen much better three stars. This is old, crap breakfast and crap service.

    « One night stay over »

    The room are fairly basic with all the usuals you would expect, the rooms are motel style, 4 rooms to a block 2up 2down. The central wigwam style reception/bar/restaurant area is lovely and well laid out with a warm open feel to it. The staff were great also.

    « Perfect stopover for airport connections, has hourly shuttles all 24 hours »

    Stayed here on 24th Jan 2016 and would say that the hotel is minimalist but has all that one could need for a short stop in order to catch your flights from Arlanda airport. The breakfast is nice and they have decent dinner options too. A vegetarian would also be taken care of! The staff is very warm and receptive of your needs. Best part of the stay is pick and drop facility from airport which is available every hour, all 24 hours!

    « Couldn't ask for more for a short flight layover »

    Excellent stay, couldn't ask for more for a short flight layover. Close to the airport, free (spot on time) courtesy bus. Check in late at night within a minute, nice clean room, basic but what do you need?! Everything I needed and more, breakfast was amazing!! This was well worth they money staying here

    « Location!! And cleanliness of hotel! »

    Me and family of 3 stayed here for 2 nights. Room was small BUT Very very clean, from bed, bedding, sheets, bath towels etc, zero complaints. Breakfast was 4-9am and is included in room price. Staff friendly and shuttle was less than 10 mins to airport and it leaves every 30 mins. Even if flight is arriving late, the hotel staff said to just call and they would send a shuttle. Highly recommend!!

    « Unique hotel with average food »

    The hotel has separate buildings containing 8 units (2 lower, 2 upper on 2 sides). Thin walls so noisy. Basic single bed, desk and bathroom with small refrigerator. Breakfast buffet is small Swedish style foods with average choices of scrambled eggs, meats, cheeses, potatoes, breads, yogurt with toppings. Bar has a few draft beers and full liquor choices. Restaurant had good food for dinner but not huge menu of items. Overall very average but not bad for a place close to the airport.

    « Convenient, comfortable moderately priced layover hotel »

    This hotel was a pleasant surprise. I had booked based on needing to be at the airport for a 9 am flight and not wanting to pay the high prices of the hotels physically at the airport. I took the Arlanda express train from Stockholm and then caught their convenient shuttle bus which stops at bus stop 7. The hotel is about 10 minutes away and is off the road and quiet. The rooms are basic but comfortable and roomy. The shower was nice and the bed comfortable. The refrigerator is stocked with water and chocolates. Breakfast is severed quite early so I had no problem eating and catching a 7:00 shuttle back to the airport. The breakfast was quite extensive and had a number of tasty options. The rooms are in small clusters of 4 to a building on 2 floors. This is convenient for driving as well us an easy walk from reception to the rooms.

    « Ideal airport hotel »

    It's hard to start with the best feature as this hotel has many... So, not in order of importance I can say: very early breakfast (can't remember if it is from 4 of 4:30) which helps if your flight is departing around 6:00; varied breakfast and excellent on site restaurant for dinner (I think the shrimp soup I had was the best soup I ever had). Another good thing is the way rooms are located: the hotel is a Group of buildings each one having 4 rooms and its own parking place so taht guests leaving early in the morning do not disturb 200 people at a time. Wi-Fi is super fast and service is warm and wecoming. I will definitely return if I am in the area again

    « Perfect for layover »

    Typically, if we have 1 or 2 nights, we will stay in Stockholm. However, this time, our flight arrived late in Arlanda and we leave the next morning. So we chose this hotel. Unlike some of the reviews, I have not had problems with the shuttle. The breakfast is adequate and it starts at 0400. As previously mentioned, the second floor rooms have a narrow winding staircase. This hotel fit our needs, and we would stay here again without hesitation.

    « Close to Airport »

    A good place to stay before a flight at Arlanda. This property is interesting- it is a bunch of small buildings each with 4 rooms. The rooms were a good size, and included a fridge, and good WiFi. They offer a shuttle bus every 30 minutes, and breakfast begins at 4 a.m... If you have heavy or bulky luggage, ask for a ground floor room, as the second floor rooms all have a narrow winding staircase, that is difficult to haul big bags up. I left as breakfast was being set up, and did not have a chance to take it in, but it looked like a nice spread of traditional Swedish foods and fresh fruit , etc. Staff was friendly. It is a bit off the beaten track, and I don't think that there is too much else to do around there. It is a good place to stay while waiting for an Arlanda flight and the 10 minute airport ride is good

    « Hotel should give warning in lobby 1 minute before bus is to leave »

    Rooms were quiet enough that airplane noise wasn't a problem. The hotel is far enough away that a long taxi ride or bus is required. The hotel bus only left ever 1.5h approx., and there was no warning given in the lobby just before the bus was to leave. Giving a warning would be helpful to ensure people don't have to take a taxi.

    « Good facilities and location »

    The hotel is comprised of a dozen or more units with 4 rooms each -- two upstairs, and two downstairs, with metal spiral outsiide stairs. We were curious about such an unusual configuration and were told that this was originally a refugee center in the early 1990s. Regardless, Best Western has upgraded facilities, free wifi and refrigerator in the room. Room was small, but clean and serviceable. Breakfast was excellent with a large variety of foods available. We had dinner one evening which was good, but fairly limited menu and pricey. If you have a car, there are several other good restaurants about 2-3 miles away in Marsta. (We loved Vivamus restaurant.) There is also a free guest laundry and a pretty hiking trail nearby. It is about 5 miles from the airport but has free and reliable bus shuttle running every 30 minutes, and we rarely heard the planes. We recommend this hotel.

    « Excellent choice for a layover »

    Robert and Jessika at the front desk were amazing in helping me check in. Here are my pros and cons with this place Pros: -Great place to stay for a quick layover. -Free shuttle to airport was a great accommodation and the proximity was really good. -Renting a bike from them was also a plus if you have extra time. I ventured to steninge castle but make sure you have extra clothes to wear because there are lots of hills and you will get a workout in. -wifi was reliable and available at all times in my room or in the lobby Cons: -Stayed on the second floor and I agree with everyone else about the narrow staircase. Good thing I didn't have too much heavy baggage. -Nearest store to buy drinks and snacks would be the gas station. If you turn left on the bigger road, follow it all the way down and you will see it on the right side. I'd say it was about a 15 minute walk. -obviously not close to Stockholm centre but if you are rating or choosing this place to be a tourist and to visit Stockholm, then you haven't done your homework because this hotel is meant to be near the airport.

    « Too far from Stockholm city... »

    I've been there for a congress and stayed for 7 days. You must walk 10 minutes to the nearest bus stop to go to a commuter train station and then travel for 40 minutes to the city center. And more 10 minutes to ach Stockholmsmassan, the convention center. The rooms are almost the same as containers and a small bed for the single occupancy. No linen sheet, just a cover bed and a pillow. You can stay in the floor level if you don't want to take your bags through a tiny rounded stair. On the other hand, the room above you will bring you some awfull level of noise. Breakfast is the same everyday with some fruits (kiwi everyday!), breads, cheese and salami. Eggs and yogurt with cereal complete the start of your day. Warm staff, easy check-in and out and there is some good mains at the restaurant, for dinner when you arrive late in the night, tired and there is nothing else nearby. Small bathroom with a shower that was broken and no one fixed it. Overall, a fair stay.

    « Best continental breakfast ever »

    Let me tell you how much I hated Sweden. 21 year old girl by myself in a country where I couldn't speak the language. I was terrified. But thank God they speak English. I was there because my connecting flight had a 21 hr layover. I spent $100 on the cab (take the train from the airport to get to Stockholm, not a taxi. Then take the shuttle back to the hotel after you take a returning train back). Sweden was scary for me and expensive. I just came back from Moscow and I loved it. Anyways. This hotel made me feel safe. If I ever return to Sweden, I will stay here again for the food and shuttle service. It was really my favorite hotel I've ever stayed in!!

    « Recommend for a short trip »

    I would give this great hotel 5 stars apart from thin walls. The rooms are in groups of four, so if you have someone coming in late at night, you can get woken with doors closing and talking.. Other than that, this is a great place. Breakfast is fantastic, staff friendly, free bikes to ride around on the many nearby bike paths through forest and along country roads; efficient shuttle service every 30 minutes. The hotel website does not give clear bus instructions. Bus leaves from pickup point 7 at :10 and :40 past the hour. No need to call unless after midnight. Back to the airport from the hotel leaves on the hour and half hour. Trip takes 7 minutes. We had a stopover, so spent our one day in the city. We caught the shuttle to the airport and then another into town. Takes about 50 minutes door to door.

    « Arlanda Hotellby »

    Clean, different , but realy nice. Not a " normal" kind of motel. The room are divided in blocks of 4. We had, a downstairs room. And that was an adventage. There is no elevator, if you are on the second floor you have to climb an open turn around kind of stairs. Don't do that with a big , heavy suitcase. Nice detail is, that they put an unbrlla in the room, because reception and restaurant are in a different building. We enjoyed a nice breakfast, with breads, deli meat and cheeses , several cereals , milk, yoghurt, good coffee. Pleasant experience. Will choose this hotel again, shuttle twice per hour.
