    « Cool and modern hotel in connection with the ABBA museum! »

    I enjoyed three nights at POP House and it is a nice hotel with very friendly staff. The breakfast/restaurant is in connection with the bar and reception. Open and friendly but also a bit busy. Nice food, good breakfast. Fresh fruits, yoghurts and juices and good teas. Breakfast is a strength at POP House. The interior is modern and music inspired. Rooms and corridor is a bit dark and the automatic light come on late. Inside the room there is no light around the "electricity card slot", which makes it hard to find in the dark. A bit silly solution. The duvet is also too thin for winter but the bed still offers good sleeping comfort. All in all a good hotel with some improvement areas.

    « Nice modern hotel »

    We stayed with 2 friends for two nights in this excellent hotel, with everything you could wish for except for the facility to make a hot drink. Otherwise everything was perfect, nice and friendly staff, very comfortable beds, nice and clean as well as quiet and peaceful day and night. A very nice breakfast and an easy 10 minute ride by boat, or tram in to the centre of Stockholm. (Or 100 kr for a taxi ride if you are too late for the last boat or tram.) Skansen, Gröna Lund, Restaurants and several large museums, are just a short walk away. The ABBA Museum is just downstairs and is great fun for all ages. The perfect place to stay if you want to see Stockholm, but want pease and quiet at night. Will definitely recommend and hope to stay there again!

    « Perfect location for families »

    We stayed here for a summer weekend trip to Stockholm with our 3 young kids. We chose to stay here due to its proximity to the attractions on the Djurgarden. You are within walking distance to a weekend full of activities for the family. The Vasa Museum, Skansen, Junibacken, Grona, etc. This is a great city break for families. The hotel itself is located within the ABBA museum, which adds a bit of quirkiness. We had adjoining rooms, but took several attempts by the staff to work out the locks between the rooms before we could get situated. The rooms are sparse, but just enough to meet expectations for a 4* property. Breakfast was delicious and provided a nice balanced offering to get the day started. The staff was friendly. Overall, we would stay here again primarily for the location.

    « Modern nice stay on top of the ABBA museum »

    Nice and fresh room overlooking the street, a little noisy in the morning. Great breakfast with a real and creamy scramble eggs, which is a measure of quality to me. Great coffee too. It's just across the street from Grona Lund fun fair, which was closed for the season. If you want to be close to the city it's just outside the city centre.

    « Disappointing hotel - Eugene from UK »

    I would rate this a 3 star hotel. The ground is dominated by the entrance to the ABBA museum and the shop. Breakfast was OK. Hotel was dead in the evening. Sweden is expensive enough but this was poor value for money. A UK Premier Inn is far superior.

    « That doors... »

    Very poor for 4* hotel. In our room wasn't handle for balkony door. At night that door opened and it wasn't possible to close it. I was cold. A the morning meneger tell something about damaged handles in all hotel. Doesn't matter! It isn't acceptable for hight level hotel. And one more accident. When we But in general, room was clean, nice decorated. Breakfest was very good. Dinner in hotel restaurant was astonishing! Thanks Chief for so delicious experience!

    « A dream hotel for Abba lovers! »

    This was our fourth visit to Stockholm and as a lifelong ABBA fan I knew I had to stay in the ABBA Gold suite at the Pop house Hotel! I booked 2 nights well in advance of our stay but received an email the day before from Mattias the hotel manager informing me the room has a problem with the bathroom and it would only be available for our 2nd night. As disappointing as this was he offered us a standard room at a reduced rate and put a gift of Cava and snacks in the Abba Gold suite for our second night. So we were happy. Our standard room had a balcony overlooking the Abba museum and was furnished in typical Scandinavian minimalist style. When we checked in to the Abba Gold suite it was amazing to stay in such a unique room decorated with original gold discs presented to each member of the band. It also had a large balcony overlooking the Grona Lund side of the hotel. The hotel is ideal for visiting the Abba museum as its part of the same property. Also Mamma Mia the Party at Grona Lund is very close by. Highly enjoyable by the way! Djurgarden is a lovely part of the city and the trams, busses and ferry are all very accessible from the hotel. Its also a pleasant walk if the weather is good. All the staff we spoke to were very friendly and helpful as we have found most Swedish people to be. Bjorn from Abba is an owner of this hotel and Benny owns the Rival Hotel in Sodermalm so now us Abba fans are spoilt for choice. Obviously the POP House is more convenient for the Abba museum and all the other attractions on Djurgarden but I do think the Rival is a little more luxurious and stylish. Either way they are both great places to stay.

    « Great Hotel, However Very Touristy »

    The rooms were lovely and include private spacious bathrooms. The complimentary breakfast is also great, offering a wide variety of breads, lox, granola, juices and coffees. Unfortunately, I was disappointed by how touristy the hotel is. I didn't realize the large (and loud) museum gift shop is in the lobby and the hotel is located next to an amusement park.

    « Thank you Pop House and the ABBA Museum for memorable experience!!! »

    Great time! We had a fantastic and unforgettable week in the Pop House Hotel. The staff are amazing, very kind and helpful. We felt like at home. Tusen Tack... Emelie, Ramona, Stephanie, Ricardo, Elinor, Moa, and Mathias. The pop House Hotel is a very comfortable and clean boutique hotel. Perfect room Delicious breakfast. Where you're greeted by Abba songs upon arrival. The ABBA Museum is there. Hotel is close to the Grona Lund, Skansen, Nordiska Musset. And walk through the park on the island is wonderful. Djurgården is a very special place. The ferry to Gamla Stan is a 150 meters. The tram, or bus are near, infront. Thank you Pop House and the ABBA Museum for memorable experience!!!

    « A great stay »

    A great stay! Hotel is close to the fantastic Grona Lund amusement park, as well as Skansen (the open air museum). The ferry to the old town (Gamla Stan) is also just around the corner. Wonderful comfy beds, spotlessly clean rooms and a fab breakfast all combine to give a great stay. The staff are also fabulous! We had a money problem which we received great help with. We can't wait to return!

    I've been here for a little over 3 weeks and it's been lovely. The reception staff have been helpful and smiley throughout my stay. My room was beautifully cleaned each day and very sound proof. The shower is a dream. The Pop House burger is award winning. The only slight downer is that one of the breakfast staff is most unhappy in her work... You know which one you are. I really can't recommend this hotel enough and I stay in lots of hotels around the world.

    « Great time! »

    We stayed at the Pop House Hotel from July 22 through July 25, accommodations were great, we had two rooms. The Hotel was very clean and breakfast was very good. The location was great, the Pop House is next to many of Stockholm's museums. If we ever again have the opportunity to visit Stockholm, I would stay at the Pop House Hotel.

    « Clean, comfortable, charming, and in a great location! »

    Stayed 2 nights here while exploring Stockholm, and was very pleased with the whole experience. Staff friendly and helpful. Hotel very clean and modern with wifi & all standard amenities. Delicious breakfast complimentary. In Djürgården, a gorgeous island studded with parks and museums, perfect home base for tourist exploration. Easy access to the rest of the city by foot, bike, bus, tram, or ferry. Excellent value for Stockholm.

    « Pop House Hotel, Stockholm »

    We stayed several nights at the Pop House, prior to embarking on a cruise from Stockholm (the Frihamnen port). The location was great-easy walking distance to the Wasa, which was the primary goal of our stay. The hotel houses a restaurant which was very satisfactory-a limited menu, but the food quality was excellent. Breakfast (which is included in the hotel fee) was also good-a nice European-style buffet, but with a few 'US style' hot foods to help fortify us for the day. The hotel room was very nice-clean, well stocked and very quiet. The hotel and restaurant were all very friendly and helpful.

    « ABBAsolutely FUN! »

    a hotel with not only LOCATION, but also a FUN MUSEUM connected is a bonus. All people working were obviously hired with GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE skills. Access to all Transportation was super and the breakfast was quality - just maybe missing some fruits, but maybe that is not Swedish??

    « Absolutely Wonderful! »

    This hotel is a must for all music lovers; especially die hard Abba Fans! Eveything is under one roof: A very comfortable and clean boutique hotel. Wonderful choice of cuisine at breakfast, lunch and dinner (except Sunday evening). All the staff are friendly, helpful, caring and bend over backwards to support your every need. The bedrooms are very clean, bright and airy with patio windows which allow access to small balconies. All rooms have air conditioning. The Museum is overwhelming and must be seen to be believed. It also features Eurovision History on one floor. A huge basement houses the Exclusive Abba Museum.The shop is well stocked with high quality merchandise. Abba Heaven! Thank you Pop House for memorable and highly commendable experience.

    Pop House Hotel is modern boutique hotel located on beautiful Djurgården in Stockholm, near numerous tourist attractions and offers a wide variety of options for the adventurous person - Gröna Lund and Skansen is literally around the corner. The hotel shares the same property as the ABBA museum and the entrance is just a push of an elevator button away (no need to go through the ticketing queue). Beds are comfortable, rooms spacious and offers a small balcony with a large sliding window. Breakfast is excellent with lots of choices. Staff is forthcoming and arranging a late checkout was a breeze. The hotel offers high speed complementary WiFi.

    « Nice Boutique Hotel »

    Pop House is a new modern boutique hotel with a high standard in its rooms - better than most I have stayed in in Stockholm. Note that the restaurant is expensive, and while the breakfast buffet is nicely presented, choice is a bit more limited than the bigger hotels. But its mainly about location. Pop House is a great choice in spring/summer/autumn of you want access to Djurgardens extensive park or amenities - but still want to be near the city centre, Its a great choice for runners. Trams go more or less continuously to Stockholms centre, and you can also take the ferry (although you have to pay each time). You can also walk it in 15-20 minutes. Room prices are variable so at the higher end this may hotel may not be a first choice - Hotel Riddargatan can also be considered, which is another boutique hotel, better situated for going out and probably worth a little more.

    « Clean basic hotel with friendly staff »

    This hotel provides very good value for its cost. It's located near a number of tourist sites though about a 15 minutes walk from areas with numerous restaurants and bars. The room was very clean and the bed very comfortable. I would also commend the staff who were very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was excellent with lots of choice. So while not a 4 star I would recommend it for a pleasant and comfortable stay.

    Nice and spacious room with quiet air conditioning and good Wi-Fi. The staff is friendly and the breakfast is good. You can enjoy fantastic walking on Djurgården and you are close to Nordic Museum and Vasa Museum.

    « Great hotel, perfect service »

    A perfect stay in a charming hotel, where you're greeted by Abba songs upon arrival. The staff at the reception is perfect. The rooms are comfortable (maybe just one or two drawers missing). The terrace is now covered and in good use for the summer. I can only recommend this place for Abba lovers but for everyone else too.

    « Eurovision 2016 »

    Was there for 3 nights for Eurovision and had the best time ever the staff are very friendly and helpful. A good verity for breakfast from hot to cold food. To top it all off for a Eurovision fan in the same building as the hotel is the ABBA museum. All I can say is if your going to Stockholm stay at the pop house hotel it is FAB.

    « A bit like a travel inn but three times the price »

    We stayed as part of a package with the Abba museum. The room was a bit small and had a constant drone from the air conditioning. The bar was limited in what you could buy, and the bar area spilled in to the reception area. This is a budget travel inn level hotel.

    « Abba-stic! »

    For a true Abba fan the hotel gives an extra kick. We stayed at the Abba Gold room, a suite with large balcony, large bed, two TV's and a separated sitting area. The room is decorated with special Abba-stuff, like the awards for selling 20 million! copies of the cd "Abba Gold". When this is said (and done..) there are some flaws. The minibar was stripped down, and the shower lacked somewhere to put shampoo and soap. There was a gap between the shower/bath tub and the wall, which caused water to run down to the floor. I couldn't find any socket in the bathroom. I stayed in january, and it was very quiet. I guess that is not the case in the summertime when Gröna Lund is open. The hotel is a bit outside the city center, but the tram, no 7, runs frequently and takes only 5-10 min to the center. Use your creditcard and buy tickets (there is 24 hours and 74 hours tickets available) at the ticket machine at the stop - that saves you 50 % compared to buying tickets from the conductor. Abba museum is in the basement of the hotel. OK breakfast, what you need but nothing more.

    « Pleasant ... but nothing special. »

    Its Ok...had expected more on the theme of POP in the common areas as well in the room. Rooms spacious and nice. Breakfast very good.The major benefit is the good walking areas around the hotel and the closeness to some very good restaurants.

    « Perfectly Adequate »

    Stylish, Good-value & Convenient. Pop house offers standard, spacious rooms with a pop design twist. Service is professional and discreet, if a bit impersonal. Located in a leafy neighbourhood 10' by tram from the centre, full of parks & museums. Overall, a good choice if you don't mind being a bit out of the city centre.

    « Very nice! »

    I stayed here for a month for business and very much enjoyed it. In a fantastic walking area of Stockholm but still easily within reach of downtown. Very friendly staff and quite good breakfast. The views from the rooms are somewhat limited depending on the room. Beware that the laundry services are extremely pricey even by Stockholm standards.

    « Suitable for an overnighter »

    The Pop House Hotel sells itself, to some extent on being attached to the Abba Museum. If that is your sole reason to visit Stockholm then it is probably a good place to stay. If not then you may be better advised to stay more centrally. The hotel is located in a very nice park area of Stockholm, and if you feel energetic, you can walk into the centre, but it is not close to the attractions. The staff were pleasant and welcoming and the lobby area had a nice feel to it, despite also being an entrance to the Abba Museum. The room was small and functional. Oddly the door to the room opened outward to the corridor, and in a corridor of bland grey doors it felt a bit like you were walking into a cupboard. Everything was clean and served its purpose but it wasn't a room for spending any length of time in - if you are going to be out a lot and merely need a comfortable bed and shower this may suit you. The restaurant, which is in the lobby is quite nice for a drink and breakfast in the morning, and again, the staff were very friendly and pleasant. This is not a bad hotel by any means, but if you want proper boutique or luxury this is not the hotel for you.

    « Hotel with potential »

    POP House hotel is located a bit outside the city center, about 40 min by foot, but with tram just infront. The ABBA Museum is a part of the building and Skansen just infront. My room was big with a large bathroom, with a modern interior without being too much design or typical Scandinavian. I missed though some essential like hangers for the cloths! The room was also pretty cold, even if the heating was on. Luckily a as provided which saved me from freezing. The wifi worked well. The breakfast was pretty small but with the essential and a plus for fruitsalad. I missed organic alternatives and the hotel has no visible enivironmental policy. The staff was quite anonomous and when I mentioned that the room was very cold I got a "I'm sorry"......This hotel has the potential to live up to the image of a quality design place as it has the features, but then some essential and basic services need to improve like details in the room and more caring attitude. Then this hotel could be somewhere to come back to.

    « Modern but far from perfect »

    Modern hotel at Abba museum in nice area close to the centre and with tram stop in front of the hotel. Good food and excellent breakfast, but gets very busy and crowded when the museum is open. We got a very small room that didn't match the description on booking.com, and it took them 2 nights to get us in a larger room. No discount was given, just some fruits. Booking.com also were very unhelpful, so both the hotel and the booking site left me with rather negative feelings. So be careful if you go there, and double check if you get the room they promised. Staff are friendly but not very competent. Food and drinks very expensive.

    « I will certainly come back again! »

    I stayed at the hotel with my 5 year old daughter! It was clean with warm atmosphere! The bed was really comfortable after the busy days in Stockholm, trying to see as many places as we could! The location is at Djurgarden, which is a really nice island, where many of the museums of the city. It's easy getting to the city center by using the tram n.7, which passes exactly outside the hotel regularly!The staff were warm helpful and gentle.They helped us with printing boarding passes and gave us information about what we asked! The breakfast was really nice. The hotel is located in the same building with the Abba Museum, which is one of the best museums i have ever visited Thank you so much! I will certainly come back again!

    « Clean but not flawless »

    Took this hotel because there seemed nothing good and reasonably priced in Sodermalm and similar places. The hotel is clean, well designed, the breakfasts are good, you can get there fast on a tram from the center and on a ferryboat from Sodermalm (10 minutes), during the day you can eat wonderful local food at Bla Porten cafe nearby, there are museums and the park around. Please keep in mind that there's pretty nowhere to eat around in the evening, eat in Sodermalm or elsewhere before you go back. The staff is friendly but they don't always know everything you need them to. On check-in they've changed versions of how much to charge (eventually they took less that anticipated on booking so that's ok), didn't know that transport tickets can be bought on a ferry terminal several steps from the hotel - sent me 1.5 kilometers away.

    « Warm genuine service »

    The staff were warm helpful and genuine. Special thanks to Manza, Emelie & Lisa . They help us secure tickets to a preview party of Mama Mia, that was difficult to obtain. Mazda went out of her way. Lisa was very helpful in finding me an adaptor. You could see that she was genuine and cared. Emelie helped with printing boarding passes and was patient and calm.

    « Basic at best... »

    Booked Pop House Hotel last minute late evening, the last room available was a standard twin room. I was greeted at check-in by a very friendly and personable member of staff who explained to me when breakfast was served, how to operate the lifts to my room and asked me if I was hungry and would like a reservation in the restaurant. I declined the reservation, overall a great first impression. The room was basic at best, with no tea or coffee making facilities - always a must for me when I travel. I want to wake up and make a cup of coffee before I face the breakfast bar and hotel guests. Loved sinking into the big bath tub before bed, but the poor design and position of the shower over the tub means water is very likely to splash on to the floor as it did the following morning when I gave the shower a test drive. Would I stay again? Pop in a kettle and coffee and beef up the mattresses (see photo) and I'll think about it.

    « Perfect Location, Fantastic Service & Food! »

    My friend & i stayed at the wonderful Pop House Hotel, alongside our visit to the ABBA museum, for which a review has been written (fantastic place by the way!). Booking was made online via the hotel's website & managed to get a most reasonable price for the stay. Our room was a twin-bed, extremely comfortable beds too. Being on the second floor, access was either via the stairs or the lift. Room service was available daily. The room accommodated a bathroom consisting of; shower over bath tub; hand basin; toilet. Complementary towels & bathrobes & slippers were provided too. No issues with the shower or bath, lovely hot water, decent water pressure, toiletries also provided. There was a work desk, armchair & open style wardrobe storage area within the room, along with a balcony which overlooked the front of the building, & the outdoor entertainment area (whilst we were there they had the last outdoor music session for the season). Lots of beautiful natural light thanks to very large sliding doors. A safe was also located above the minibar. Reception staff were available 24/7 & were most polite & helpful. Nothing was too much to be of assistance. As part of the package cost, breakfast was included. Extremely impressed with the offering - cooked or continental, no issues with replenishing food or drink items, staff very attentive. They were able to cater for a gluten intolerance diet with no issues, of which we were most grateful for. We also ate at the restaurant for some evening meals & glad we did, much the same superb service & a beautiful menu, which had only recently been produced. A really nice gentle atmosphere in the restaurant, some background music, enough to hear, but not too much to drown out conversation! The restaurant seemed busy each time we visited, both for groups & couples & families. All could be accommodated with ease. You could eat at the restaurant without staying at the hotel, so if you are staying elsewhere, at least consider a visit for a wonderful meal experience! We chose the hotel for its location to the ABBA museum - which is housed downstairs from the hotel & the gift shop is located on the ground floor next to the hotel's cafe/restaurant area. We would definitely recommend the hotel, whether for a visit to the ABBA museum, or perhaps to stay a short way out of Stockholm, it is only a few mins (maybe 10 max) on the tram into the main part of the city, or you can walk it, as we did on a beautiful autumnal saturday which takes you alongside the waterways. Having flown into Arlanda from London Heathrow (BA), we caught the Arlanda Express train from the airport to the city. Duration 20 mins. You can purchase tickets at the machines at the airport or via the Arlanda Express App, where you can pre purchase tickets & then activate them before you board the train. There are conductors on board, & you can also purchase tickets from them also. Thank you so much to the Pop House Hotel, we had a fantastic stay, topped by our visit to the ABBA museum, we will return! :-)

    « Perfect location, sort of hip hotel, great staff, excellent breakfast, fine room »

    Location is everything: everything is close by or can easily be reached by bus, tram or ferry (1 to 5 minutes walk). I had a great day with the ferry to Gamla stan, walking to Skeppsholmen and back with the ferry from there. Almost all must see's included. Fine room in great hotel with friendly staff. Excellent facilities and especially "grand" breakfast. When in Stockholm this is a treat.

    « Lovely room & Lovely breakfast »

    I only stayed one night , on a business trip, But I managed to have a long relaxing bath in the nice tub, and enjoyed the wide selection for breakfast (which is included) . Not being very familiar with Stockholm, it was really easy to get the tram , it stops right out side the hotel and takes you straight into the city center. if you are there in the summer and a garden lover , Rosendals Trädgård is only a 20 min walk and is perfect for coffee or lunch surrounded by beautiful flowers.

    « On top of the ABBA Museum »

    Great location with lots of nearby attractions. Ferry and tram to city right at the hotel. Staff were really friendly and the room was clean and well appointed. Excellent breakfast. The Pop House Hotel was recommended to us by a friend from Stockholm, his judgement was vindicated by our enjoyment of a great stay at an excellent boutique hotel on top of the ABBA museum.

    « Great choice in Stockholm »

    We stayed 2 nights in this hotel and loved it. The rooms are larger than normal for Scandinavia. Whilst the rooms are a little past new, the beds are fabulous! The breakfast is the best but the really great thing about this hotel is the staff! They couldn't be more helpful. It is a small hotel situated on Museum island so you are minutes away from the fabulous Vasa Museum and the tram stop to town is immediately outside the hotel. The Abba Museum is in the same building. If you like staying somewhere a bit different from standard hotels, this is the place for you.

    « Good room, excellent food »

    The room was nice (and very spacious). We were a little disappointed not to have the opportunity for an early check-in, and had to entertain ourselves on Djurgården for quite a while. On the plus side, they did offer to hold our bags behind the desk, and we had time for lunch at the restaurant. It was delicious! You will run out of things to do in the immediate area after a couple days, but there are a couple amazing museums nearby, as well as all of the island. It will take some time to walk into the heart of the city, where your options are much more varied.
