This place was amazing. Everyone, including the hotel, ABBA Museum, bar, restaurant, and gift shop staff were exceptional. There are several other museums within walking distance. There is also access to public transportation right outside the front door which made exploring Stockholm simple.
Recently stayed here for a few days. The hotel is well situated for most of the museums as well as being next door to the amusement park the Mamma Mia party and of course is above the ABBA Museum. The rest of Stockholm is easily reached by bus just outside the hotel or there is a ferry just down the road. The rooms are clean and modern and were always made up nicely upon our return. On the third floor there is a Mamma Mia suite and a ABBA Gold suite which are larger and have balconies overlooking the adjacent houses. Being close to the Amusement Park it can be noisy but this was not an issue for us. The breakfasts were good however we and others kept having to ask staff to replenish a number of items that had run out. The Museum closed early one evening for a private function which meant it was not possible to use the bar. After finally finding somebody in the restaurant bar I was informed that the hotel had run out of draft beer! I suppose it can be difficult running a hotel when you are also running a Museum. The hotel reception is next to the desk where tickets are purchased for the Museum. As hotel guests we did receive a discount to visit the Museum it would have been nice to receive a discount in the Museum shop as we spent a lot of money there being big ABBA fans as I guess most people staying at this hotel would be.
I stayed here recently with my best friend and we were looked after so well the minute we arrived. The staff really made the stay great - Anthony, Ulf and Cassandra on reception were so helpful and really nice people. The staff on the bar were equally as pleasant. The hotel itself is in a lovely location, we could actually walk to most parts of Stockholm that we wanted to visit. Even the Old Town which appears to be miles away is walkable in 40 mins or so. The surrounding area is very nice, I would certainly feel safe here at night. The Tivoli theme park is right next door too. Of course the hotel is in the same building as the brilliant ABBA museum which worked well for us as we are big fans of ABBA, the museum being the highlight of our trip. I would definitely stay here again.
Had a fabulous time staying at the Pop House Hotel. Hotel rooms were great, breakfast was nice and the staff wow they were amazing. Highly recommend if staying in Stockholm and I will definitely return for another stay soon.
I booked this hotel to attend the Mamma Mia party in Stockholm for family and friends, we were a group of 7. I was pleasantly surprised as I wasn't expecting such a good stay. It's always a bit hit and miss when you stay in city hotels! The service on front desk was excellent. I would go back for a longer visit of Stockholm! Super comfy beds and pillows too and bath products smelt divine, wished I could have bought some.
The hotel is well maintained and in a good location. Fun experience as the lobby for the hotel is also part of the rock n' roll - ABBA museum. The staff was very friendlyand would offer advice if asked about local things to do. In Stockholm you are fairly close to something to do and in this case it is museums, aquarium and Strandvagen. If you like to walk which we do then the main walking street Drottingatten is not far. The breakfast is just OK compared to other Swedish hotels and the rooms have a view but many is into other rooms so keep your curtains closed. Overall a good choice for a fun visit to Stockholm
Nice day in Djurgården. Hotel is super easy to access, good transport, friendly and helpful staff. Lot of activities and peacuful nature just around the corner. Only minus was that on Monday evening there wasn't that many restaurants available in the nearhood.
We purposely visited this hotel to indulge in a ABBA weekend. We could not have chosen better. The hotel is the museum and is amazing. The service on arrival was efficient and friendly. The hotel room was spotless and the beds extremely comfortable. The food was fresh and delicious. We had easy access to the teams and boats on our door step and had. Poked ticket for the mamma Mia party night which was at the side of our hotel. We had the perfect weekend and adored Stockholm. It would have been nice to go in the Tivoli fun fair but a bit of season. Maybe next time. Definitely worthy of a visit and be sure to do the museum & party !!
Loved this hotel and the Abba Gold suite we are staying in. The room is amazing, very clean and equipped with all you could need. Stayed here for my 40th birthday celebrations and travelled from UK. Our only negative was handled brilliantly and quickly. Our bath plug wouldn't work and so couldn't have a bath. We were offered an alternative room very quickly but we declined as I didn't want to give up the Abba Gold suite. And we can shower anyway!! They acted quickly and we really appreciated it.
The restaurant has only a small selection of food, the waiters are not the fastest ones and the food tastes dull and tasteless. For such high prices we expected something different. Definitely not coming back in this place!!
A lovely hotel to spend 3 nights celebrating birthdays. Located at the Abba Museum, ideal if that is the purpose of your trip. Hotel has Abba shop and Abba music playing and Abba photos and pictures on the walls. Staff very accommodating, friendly,nothing is too much trouble. Very clean rooms. No tea/coffee making facilities in room, which was a shame. Breakfast very nice as was the bar and reception area for a drink and relax.
Pop House is located perfectly at Djurgården. It's close to museums, amusement parks and more. Traveling to or from the hotel is easy by tram or bus. In the summer I recommend getting a bike card which allows you to travel all over Stockholm, taking and leaving bikes at specific locations. The breakfast was nice and the personel very friendly.
This hotel oart if the Abba museum complex. Is really good.the staff could not do enough to help you. Breakfast good dinner we ate there twice both times well above average . The best part is you just walk across the reception and get discounted to the tickets to the Abba museum. A great stay at a great hotel.we will be back to finish seeing Stockholm
Stayed one night at pop house hotel, after a show at Cirkus. Room is really small, but had a bathtub and a small balcony. Beds really good. Safety box and small minibar in room, a tv, and in bathroom schampoo, soap, hair conditioners and cream for skin. No room for suitcases. Small tv on wall. I would not recommend this hotel for a longer stay, there are much better hotels in the center of the city, for less money.
Excellent food, attentive and friendly staff. Cozy yet ambient atmosphere. If you want to have an experience just a few minutes from the city center, this is the place to go. Also with the water nearby and royal Djurgården's walk friendly surroundings just around the corner.
The hotel rooms are bigger than usual hotels in Stockholm. However the rooms could do with better cleaning. The rooms have no coffee machines nor a Kettle which nowadays is a unusual. On the other hand the breakfast was really nice enough choice and good quality food. The staff is really helpful and when asked for late checkout they accommodated. The hotel is about 9 minutes tram ride from the city centre, the area is very quiet and you cannot hear any noise inside the rooms
I stayed at this hotel with my daughter. It was birthday present from husband. We stayed for 3 nights and were lucky enough to have the 3rd night in the mama Mia theme room ( it's fantastic) ! The hotel it lovely, the staff can't do enough for you, it's clean and the rooms are spacious with very comfortable beds. The location is perfect, tram stops outside and the ferry is around the corner which takes you to Gamla Stad ( old town) . There is so much to do nearby and especially the ABBA museum ( which is at the hotel) . I would definitely return to Stockholm and stay at this hotel again.
This hotel is comfortable and has a very good breakfast, with a large range of breads, cheeses and cold meats. The scrambled egg and fruit were excellent too. The restaurant meals are delicious too, but not cheap. I had a very tasty chicken risotto. The front desk team was exceptionally courteous and helpful. There were one of two quirks about the room that were a bit odd- for example, if you have a shower, the whole bathroom is soaked. But how wonderful for ABBA fans being in the same building as the ABBA Museum. The hotel sells discounted tickets to the ABBA Museum. Apart from the ABBA Museum, the hotel is extremely convenient for other tourist sites - the Vasa and Skansen museums are about 5 minutes walk away. The Gröna Lund amusement park and ferry to Gamla Stan are even closer. There is also a bus and tram stop outside, so you can travel almost everywhere in Stockholm.
Everything in this hotel is top, and the help in the frontdesk is above the ordinary, it comes with a benefit, the Abba museum is downstairs, even if it feels a bit outside the city center, is it reachable an a nice walk
1 night for 2430 SEK for a standard double room. Really close to Circus and for the concert we were goding to. At arrival you are meet by a disgusting smell. Really strange, staff overwelming friendly but did not mentioning or apologizing about the smell, the smell was in our room as well...We noticed we were not the only ones noticing the poosmell However we did not complain......ok our wrong doing. BUT if you as staff of such hotell are really aware of such odoer why not say it?? It was not nice during the breakfast either. Breakfast average - no extras. Staff did not great you at entrance noting your room number. No shoehorn at the room. Returning at the hotel at night for a drink we noticed a bar at the restaurant we thought we could buy a drink. We were not allowed to buy a drink at all and referred to the bar.....but a short time thereafter other people were allowed to buy something to drink? Please note: the restaurant and the bar was more or less empty.
Stayed for 4 nights. Great location, with superb transport links by ferry to the Old Town, and by tram to Central Station. Great food at reasonable prices in the "glass house" bar. Breakfast was good, included with the price of our room - large choice of cold meats, cheeses, fruit, bread etc, also hot crispy bacon and scrambled eggs. My wife loves ABBA, so staying at this hotel was like Disneyland to her! If you're going to Mamma Mia The Party, this should be your first choice of hotel. The Mamma Mia room (114) is great fun if you're lucky enough, like us, to be allocated here. Front of house staff so, so friendly and welcoming! Thank you to Dennis, Anthony, Ulf, Philip and Kate for making our stay in Stockholm so special.
We stayed in the Pop House Hotel for 3 nights in September. The location is perfect-easy walk to several points of interest. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast is delicious. The rooms were great. But most of all, I owe them a big thanks. I left my kindle in my room and did not realize it until several hours later. When I called, they had already set it aside for me and went out of their way trying to get it to me before I left the country. We couldn't make that work, so they shipped it to my home and I received it today. Great honesty & service! Oh yes, we loved the Abba MUseum which is attached to the hotel. It's very interactive & fun.
I am currently staying at The Pop House hotel for two nights. Great location very quiet at night , I have slept with the sliding terrace doors open and not heard a thing. So being a little way outside the hustle and bustle of the city centre is a real bonus to sleep. It is a lovely 20 minute stroll in to the city or a water taxi ride or taxi or tram which stops outside the hotel. I am staying in a fabulous suite room 304 with a huge roof top terrace with beautiful views of the vasa museum the water and the city. The room is wonderful, a dining table , sofa ,3 arm chairs and separate bedroom , bathroom and an extra toilet, 3 big TVs. The hotel is clean and tidy.The staff are great. Carolin, the hotel manager, is exceptional a true professional and a great asset to the hotel. Ulf on reception is amazing , from a wonderful welcome , to sorting out our sightseeing options and of course tickets to the ABBA museum downstairs and checking we were having the best time whenever we past reception and always remembering our names. Ulf and Carolin made our stay in Stockholm our best ever.
Enjoyed our stay, the breakfast, and the staff especially--Anthony, Ulf and Dennis. Booked the superior room which is big in a L-shaped, quiet overlooking a yellow apartment building. Breakfast is well proportioned with fresh fruits and lingonberry and breads, toast, bacon, eggs, sausage and more. Love the location, next to art gallery, museums, there is the amusement park, but weekdays are not as crowded. Booked the Mamma Mia! The Party package, an event not to be missed. Entry to museum which is great, a night at the Mamma Mia! room and MM The Party! The Party is peak of the highlights of the trip.
Our company stayed for the night. We had a guided tour of the Abba Museum, definately walk down memory lane?? The rooms were lovely and the Restaurant and bar were great. Must not miss breakfast. A very amusing get away?? To the staff.
I stayed at the Pop House Hotel for one night in Stockholm--and wish I could stay longer. The hotel is central to major tourist attractions in Stockholm (a few minutes away from the award-winning Vasa Museum), has a kind and attentive staff, wonderful bar, great breakfast (included in my stay) and maybe most importantly, on top of the ABBA Museum. For one who is hardly an ABBA aficionado, the Museum was a well-worth tour into this iconic Swedish band. Plus, staying at the hotel gives you a discount on the Museum. Thank you for the music (and the stay), and hope to be back soon!
A nice hotel above the ABBA museum in Stockholm. Good clean rooms and a pretty good breakfast included in my rate. There is a tram stop outside which is super convenient! Thanks for a great stay. I will be back.
A wonderful hotel in the center of Stockholm. Connected to the ABBA museum. Very clean, friendly and helpful staff. Rooms were airy, spacious and spotless. We had two rooms with a connecting door as we requested. It would be nice and welcoming if a kettle and some teabags /coffee were placed in the rooms this as a suggestion. Very attentative, accommodating and helpful staff. All of the receptionist were very informative and were patient in answering our queries. Thank you, Dennis, Anthony, Kate, Ulf and Kristin to make our stay memorable. Breakfast was simple with an assortment of breads, cheeses, fruits and warm sausages bacons and eggs. Cereals and juice were also available. Lunch was a buffet of cold vegetables and warm beef and salmon with a small dessert completing with tea and coffee. Suggestion here would be to have a warm vegetarian / vegan dish to cater towards some clients who are vegan or vegetarian. Close to the harbour for a boat ride and easy to hop on and hop off to see other sites around Stockholm. Would definitely recommend to all our friends and family and would defiantly visit again.
I´m a native Stockholm resident but booked a suite at the Pop House Hotel for our 20th anniversary. I´m also a business person that average about 40 nights per year in hotels around the world so I have a pretty good experience from (mostly 4-5 star) hotels. The Pop House hotel stay was a fantastic experience for us. We booked a suite (room 304 which is easily the best one of the suites) and it was large with a huge roof terrace (I´d guess 75-100 sqm) and view over the Vasamuseum/strandvägen and the Tivoli. Not an amazing view but good. The location is not in the city center but it's a beautiful 20-30 min walk along Strandvägen (or bike ride, you can rent city bikes, there is a dock around the corner). Trams or buses takes you in to town in less than 10 minutes. If I´d go to sthlm on a family or business trip in period May-Oct I´d definitely chose this hotel. Pro's * extremely friendly and service minded staff * suite 304 was a fantastic "room" * The Abba Museum is in the basement * Location at Djurgården is one of the great places of Stockholm * Pulse and energy with a lot of things to discover around the corner * Close to city center Con's * Bathroom was a 3 star in an otherwise 5 star experience. Clean and fresh but bad design and choice of material * If you don´t like pulse and energy - this is not the place for you. There are a lot of people in the hotel entrance as it is also the entrance to the Museum. For us we loved it. * The breakfast was OK but not more.
This hotel is located within the ABBA The Museum, and although we have not stayed in the hotel per se, we did enjoy its restaurant and coffee bar. Although with a good choice of food, not a huge selection of it. But that is fine. At the coffee bar, we had ciders, flat whites with a good sandwich and a tis pastries. The prices are in accordance with a tourist attraction and the staff is friendly.
Just behind the entrance to the ABBA museum is the Pop House restaurant which serves an awesome lunch buffet for only 175sek per person. My wife and i had both the fish and meat dish with many excellent salads plus coffee and dessert. A remarkable meal at a very reasonable price. Food quality was great and very tasty. A highly recommended lunch buffet!!!
Estuvimos 7 dias hospedados en el Pop House, incluidas una noche en la ABBA GOLD ROOM y dos noches en la DUVEMALA ROOM. Las habitaciones tematicas son grandes y confortables y estan ambientadas, la Gold con los discos de oro originales del grupo y con el ambiente de la musica disco de los 70. La DUVEMALA esta ambientada con la historia del musical KRISTINA FRAN DUVEMALA cuya musica es de Benny y Bjorn de ABBA. La habitacion standard tambien muy espaciosa y confortable. El desayuno buffet del hotel muy completo con frutas, yogurts, comida caliente y muy buen cafe. Algunos dias almorzamos en el restaurant del hotel. Muy buena comida sobretodo la ensalada Caesar y la hamburguesa pop. El personal de trato muy agradable tanto en el restaurant como en el ABBA shop y el museo. Pero quiero hacer una mencion especial para Anthony, Kate y Dennis de la recepcion por su excelente atencion y su constante colaboracion. No dudaria en elegirlos de nuevo. Excelente estadia.

But I want to make a special mention for Anthony, Kate and Dennis of the reception for their excellent attention and their constant collaboration. I would not hesitate to choose them again. Excellent stay
Pop House Hotel was the best location for many reasons. Those of us who are great Abba fans should stay at that hotel. The Abba Museum is in the same building. You don't have to stand in long lines because you are staying at the hotel and you also get a discount. The Hop On Hop Off bus and boat stop right there at the hotel because of the museum. The famous park is right across the street and the Nordic & Vasa Museums are within walking distant. The staff was very helpful.
Rooms were average but very clean Staff were friendly and helpful Great location for ABBA restaurant and if a fan, awesome museum, so interactive and so much fun loved it.... Breakfast was average but still enjoyable.
The hotel is situated in the same building like ABBA The Museum. That means, if you want to feel very close to Agnetha, Björn, Benny + Frida - stay there! Mamma Mia - The Party - Location is also located just behind the hotel. Rooms are big + comfortable. Breakfast ist very good. The staff at the reception is awsome!! They are extremly friendly + helpful. Distance to city center: 5 minutes by boat / apprx. 7 min by tram - both are just next to the hotel. Or you can easily walk, around 15 - 20 minutes. Will definetly return!
Excellent hotel. Reception staff in particular were ever so helpful and friendly. Booked three rooms and all were close together and the same high standard. Very comfortable beds and pillows, quiet, good shower and a reasonable size for what we paid. Breakfast was good and it was nice to be away from the building works in the city centre. We could walk to Vasa and Nordic museum and there are some nice places to eat or drink by the water and just over the bridge. We didn't eat dinner in the hotel so I can't comment on that. Tram and bus stops right outside and in the morning and evening (when we were there) there are no queues for the museum which is actually quite a fun place to visit.
It might be all about the Pop but these guys Rock! Don't think I've stayed in a more friendly or helpful hotel than this one! The staff were just great, even making us up a wee pack lunch & coffees to take away when we had to leave for the airport at 04.30am! The room was lovely and very comfortable & we liked their bathroom products(L:A Bruket) so much we bought some at the airport. The buffet breakfast was great and really sets you up for the day,especially since you've got a lot to see and do in this great location and let's not forget the fact that you have the ABBA museum in the same building as you, which was just wonderful & really good fun!(+you get discounted tickets if staying @ the hotel) I really can't imagine staying anywhere better than this in Stockholm, so I won't, I'll just keep coming back here! ??
First, it's located above the ABBA Museum. You'd think that was enough, but you'd be wrong. The rooms are spatious, well appointed, have a large door to the outside that opens, have heated bathroom floors, among other things. The staff is 1st rate, especially Mr. Chu, who was very friendly while helping us with a few issues on our reservation. We initially planned to stay one night, but ended stay 5! The included breakfast is very good as well with eggs, meats, fruit, and a variety of breads and cheeses along with fresh juices. The locale is great and you are across the street from Skansen and the Grona Lund amusement park but it is still very quiet. The tram and bus stop are across the street so it's a short 5 minute ride into other parts of Stockholm.
I booked the hotel, because I wanted to stay in this part of town - close to Vasa museum and in the park, a bit out of the city center. The hotel has a lovely design, rooms are spacious offering a very comfortable bad and spotlessly clean bathroom equipped with a chic bathtub ???? that is perfect to chill after a long day around the town. The hotel is easily reached by tram N 7 or by a ferry boat from the center of the town. Do take a ferry boat in the morning to reach the Old Town, the view is absolutely lovely ??. There's plenty of good restaurants in the vicinity, my favorite Oaxen Krog - go and grab a bite in their bistro. Hotel staff was friendly and very helpful, especially Anthony who was at the reception when I have arrived. He offered plenty of good addresses and tips that made my trip even more enjoyable ????
I'm torn between a 3 and 4 rating for the Pop House. The staff are so nice that I wanted to like it more. But the check in counter is right by the museum entrance and gift shop for the Abba Museum making you feel less special. They do their best with the set up but it really should be constructed more like a lobby with check in rather than a counter with a computer. Also the breakfast was terrible. There was nothing we could tolerate and we ended up going elsewhere. The actual space was nice but the food was awful. Beyond awful. The other thing not so great was the location. It was in the Djurgarten. Which was fine for the day we road bikes. But otherwise difficult as we always had to walk, ferry or bus/tram out to where you want to be, especially for food. You want to be in the area by The Diplomat Hotel. The rooms were quite nice as was the bedding. But the bathroom was difficult with the tub rather than a shower. Also no wash cloths! But like I said, the staff were so nice and helpful. One good thing was the price and the fact that it was quiet. We were not there on a weekend though. On a side note, staying at the hotel got us a discount to the Abba Museum and the ability to skip the queue. The Abba Museum was a hifhlight of Stockholm! As was bike riding.
My husband and I stopped in for lunch before our visit to the ABBA museum. We had not been in Stockholm long and were hungry for lunch. We knew we also needed a full belly for all the museums we were planning to visit. My husband ordered the burger and I ordered the shrimp salad. The burger was huge, greasy and delicious per my husband. The shrimp salad was tasty and would recommend to anyone. It came with egg, avocado, quinoa tossed in a lemon dressing. Note the portions are quite large (think American size) and delicious

Hi, Thank you for your review and for taking the time to write to us! Have a nice day! Kind regards, Moa
Upon arrival, it wasn't quite clear as to where the reception was located as the entrance was surrounded by crowds of visitors to the ABBA museum and a large queue had formed outside. The reception desk itself is very small and off to the side of the museum shop and ticket desk. We had to wait a while to check in even though there was only one couple in front of us and you didn't get that instant welcoming feeling. The room was a good size but disappointed by the bathrooms poor design. I don't quite get why there is a freestanding bathtub with a shower screen from the floor when it would have been perfect as a large walk in shower. There was absolutely no storage to keep your toiletries either and was a pain having to reach over to the sink area to grab things. Our room was facing the front and was quite noisy on the Friday night with music/entertainment playing but more disturbingly was our room was overlooked by some of the other rooms and got a fright seeing some guy walking around his room completely starkers! Breakfast was average; the 5 minute eggs were good but found the scrambled eggs overcooked and the bacon was cold and the sausages looked very unappetising. I thought there would have been a larger selection of pastries and other cooked items. The hotel is located on the tranquil Djurgården island but is a short tram or bus ride over the bridge to Östermalm and other main areas of Stockholm. Next door to the hotel is the Gröna Lund amusement park so expect to see a lot of tourists in the vicinity.
I stayed here for a business trip and it worked very well. The room was a good size and well air conditioned. The bed was comfortable and the breakfast excellent. Although it is a little out of the centre, there are good transport links into the main centres of Stockholm. It is in the ABBA museum and very near the Vasa.

Hi Charles, Thank you for your review and for taking the time to write to us! Hope to see you as our guest again soon! Kind regards, Moa
Visited Pop House for coffee with friends, some of whom were residents of the hotel. My friend bought me a coffee out to the terrace - I popped by inside for a spoon which were housed on top of the counter so I took one (I needed to stir my drink!). Next thing I know a member of staff came literally running across the restaurant demanding what was I doing taking a spoon and grabbing it off me. I explained to her that I was a customer and was sat outside and needed this to stir my drink. She was literally screaming at me but once I explained I managed to retrieve the spoon from her. No apology was offered she just turned and walked off. This is not the first time I have been treated this way at this hotel. I definatley will not be returning. The waitresses name was Camilla and I understand other guests have been on the receiving end of her vile tongue. Unacceptable. How does someone like this get a job in the customer service industry?

Well, I will never make that error again. This was my first time staying at Pop House the hotel connected to the ABBA museum. However this wasn't my first time staying in Stockholm ( a stunning city), previously staying at Rival, The Grand and others. Born on my experiences of other hotels and the fact that this was owned by none other than Bjorn of ABBA I had high expectations. My goodness how disappointing. The hotel clearly markets itself under the minimalism bracket ... I'm guessing that is another word for sparse, uninspiring, cheap and put just enough in the rooms. No coffee facilities, soap by the sink not in the shower, let the cheap paint retain all its knocks, scrapes and bashes. Breakfast - possibly one of the worst I have ever had ... ever. Cold watery powdered scramble egg, cold bacon with added salt!! And the most unappetising sausages. Cold meats were uninspiring and the piece of pate brought out on the Friday was the same there on Tuesday just a bit more dried up. Then there is the most shocking behaviour of one of the managers ‘Camilla'. Fellow guests were verbally assaulted bringing the last remnants of their ice cream onto the terrace (despite paying £600+ to stay), RUDE, AGGRESSIVE and UNPROFESSIONAL! Second experience saw a friend literally have a spoon snatched out of her hand , one she had taken from a bowl of spoons on the bar top to stir her £4.80 coffee with. Again the shoddy customer care from The same manager shone through. So very very disappointed, annoyed and let down. I do want to commend though the exceptional service offered by reception staff, bar staff ... what has happened?? Interesting that Rival staff are the other extreme, professional, pleasing, happy and above all else interested in you the customer.

A okay lunchbuffe for 175kr, good staff. Not alot to choose from but considering the location and the price it was worth it. Definitely worth a visit to this restaurant. The hotel it self I dont know much about, since we didnt stay there

Hi Sheri, Thank you for your review and for taking the time to write to us! Have a nice day! Kind regards Moa
After a wonderful visit to the museum, we went right next door for a bite - our daughter had gotten an ice cream down the road and joined us as we ate. A woman had a tray of bottles, which she dropped and my daughter got up to gather a couple of bottles to help her. This very rude woman then came to my daughter, seated beside us, and told her to "leave because we don't serve ice cream here"! We were so surprised at her poor manners, we got up and left. Once I walked out, I got annoyed and returned to tell the main fellow about what this woman did. He seemed embarrassed and apologized for her, but she was nowhere to be seen. The sandwich was okay but the service was terrible. Treating paying customers this way is shameful.

Location: The hotel shares the same building as the ABBA museum and is a must for ABBA fans. There is one standard room that is “themed”, the Kristina room based on a musical. There are premier rooms based on ABBA themes. I stayed in the Kristina room and it was way cool!!! It's located on one of the islands, so not in downtown. But the ferry station is just behind the hotel, so very convenient. Since the ABBA museum in there, plenty of taxis. Once the museum closes, the streets are very quiet. Staff: The staff is very friendly and helpful and have a great sense of humor. They also prefer credit cards to cash (that seems to be the norm in Stockholm). Room: The themed room is very cool, like a rustic farm house, but bed was comfy, bathroom is updated and normal. The room is on the third floor and has a huge private balcony and great views of the city. NOTE: several of the standard rooms are on the ground floor, which doesn't have privacy during the day. Breakfast: For 90Euros a night, full breakfast buffet is included and WOW what a spread of organic, local cold and hot options. Love this! Wish the Best Western in the US had food like this. We had a lot of fun staying at this hotel and going to the ABBA museum. Highly recommend!
Our experience with the PopHouse staff was great. They went out of their way to call a smaller hotel in a different city for me, so that I could explain that we'd be arriving late. They were just nice friendly people, and made our stay seem better. The breakfast was lovely, something that you could write home about as an American tourist. Lots of variety- fruit, yogurt, eggs, all kinds of cheese and meats, different kinds of bread, etc. Thinking from a European perspective, I'd imagine that you'd be satisfied. It was a nice quiet room in September. The bed was a standard Swedish mattress. I don't generally sleep well on these mattresses, so I didn't sleep great. However, that happens with most of these mattresses. The room itself was large enough that I could lay out my yoga mat. It was also quiet, and I didn't hear the people around us. They also had a luggage storage room, which we took advantage on the last day of our trip. The hotel was also right off of a public transit line, so you could easily get the to Stockholm Attractions without too much hassle. You could also even transfer to the airport, which makes it easy. The soaps in the bathroom were higher end, nice smelling soaps. However, the bathroom tub was really high. You had to be careful getting in and out of the tub. If stepping over a high tub is a concern for you, I'd definitely rule out this hotel. However, overall it was a great stay, and I'd happily stay here again.
Had lunch for 4 at the hotel restaurant which has a nice ambience and decor. The menu was varied enough and reasonably priced but service was average only. The vegetarian options were two dishes having either mushrooms or goats cheese neither of which were suitable for the one vegetarian among us and no other suggestion was made, other than a serving of 'frites'. The Caesar salads for two of us came with pieces of chicken with the skin still on and a little like eating leather. It could be that since we were a little late for lunch we got the end of the available ingredients but not really an excuse for serving up poorly prepared food. As the schoolmaster would have said "Could do better".

Hi, Thank you for your feedback! I'm very sorry to hear that your experience in our restaurant didn't meet your expectations. Our guests feedback is very important to us and I'll pass those along to our restaurant manager. I hope we get to welcome you as our guest again! Kind regards, Moa
A bit out of the way for the traveller who likes nightlife by foot, but only 5 mins by cab into town. Walk to Skansen and ferry terminal and just the press of a button in the lift to the ABBA museum, the Jewell in the pop house Hotel crown. Ooh, have I over done it?

This was my second trip to Stockholm and I decided to stay in the hotel above the ABBA museum… I cannot fault it. The location is not very central, but suited me perfectly for the purpose of my visit. The hotel staff were extremely helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. My room was beautiful and clean and looked very fresh. My bed was comfortable and the large sliding door and balcony were a nice-to-have. The bathroom was fabulous – with a deep fill bath (which was nice to take advantage of after a long journey). The décor along the hallways and in the restaurant is also very cool and the added bonus of being so close to the ABBA museum (and getting discount into the museum) is a plus. The whole place was very clean and well looked after. I would definitely stay here again.

While the Pop House is about a 15-minute cab ride from Central Station, its location on beautiful Djurgarden is central to many top attractions, including the Vasa Museum, Skansen (the world's oldest and largest outdoor museum), Cirkus perfromance venue, Gronda Lund amusement park and the Nordic Museum. Mamma Mia! The Party is just around the corner, and Abba: The Museum is located on the bottom two floors of the hotel. (Hotel guests get discounted admission to the museum; ask at the front desk.) The ferry to Gamla Stan and the historic Stockholm city centre is just a block away. Unfortunately the ferry doesn't run late into the evening but a tram line runs right past the front door. The hotel itself is modern and clean, with a modest funky vibe. The corridors are lined with portraits of Abba and other Swedish music icons. The restaurant is very good but offers small tapas-like courses. We arrived shortly before closing, as did another group, but they happily seated us and kept the food and wine coming. If you are looking for more substantial fare there are a few charming local dining places within easy walking distance of the hotel. Staff are friendly and accommodating. Michael in particular went the extra mile for us when we ran into an issue in our room and was charming and engaging to talk to. (He was amused when I said our group had lunched at the downtown Hotel Rival. Bjorn Ulvaeus is an owner of the Pop House; Abba bandmate Benny Andersson is owner of the Rival, so they do enjoy a friendly rivalry.) I happily recommend the Pop House; it's a comfortable base for exploring Stockholm's many attractions.

A very nice place to stay that is close to the Vasa Museum, within an easy walking distance. It was also quite easy to get over to Gamla Stan via the tour boats. The room was large and pleasant. The bed was comfortable. And if you happen to be a fan of Abba (unlike me), the hotel is part of the Abba Museum.
We have been 2 nights at the Pop House hotel. Our room was nice, very good housekeeping ( change of towels ever y day even if it is not necessary but no the possibility to choose e.g. "leave the towels on the floor to get new" as proceed in other hotels). Central located easy to travel by boat, bus, tramp or just walk. We knew already the museum but don't miss to visit (ask at the reception how to get in, opening hours...) The team was really nice, helpful and very friendly. The breakfast was great, enough to choose (bread, toast, cereals, eggs, fruit salad, cheese, juices, coffee, tea) As the hotel has not so many rooms it is not so busy at the buffet. The only little minus: the bar close very early. The first evening (Sunday) our friends arrived at 9:00 pm and we wanted to have a drink before sleep but the bar was closed. The girl at the front desk had a key for the fridge and organized a glass of wine. Second evening after the concert at Circus the bar was also closed, this time the girl at the front desk had no key but she checked if the bar at the Scandic Hasselbacken was still open (until 11.00 pm). We travel at least 2/ year to Stockholm and we will probably return to enjoy this location.
Big rooms with huge windows and a narrow balcony. Good WiFi and a big flatscreen tv. The tram passes just a few steps away and you can also take the ferry to city. You're close to Gröna Lund and Skansen and in the same house as ABBA museum. Djurgården is green and calm and so beautiful in the summer.
As a huge Abba's fan, there would be no other place to stay while in Stockholm. Rooms are clear, clean, with all details well taken care of. Breakfast items are excellent. Super friendly and helpfull staff, specially the guy who checked me in - I'm sorry I forgot to ask his name, as he deserved a special mention in this review. His help made my short stay much better.
I stayed here 5 nights and had a comfortable stay. The room was spacious, vlean, very quiet and the bed very comfortable with nice bed linen :). Breakfast buffet was good wit a nice variety. At this time of year the whole area is very quiet and there are no restaurants open after 8-9 pm. The hotel restaurants can give you some room service but it is not a big choice and it is a microwave meal. The gym was closed during my visit , I did not make any further enquiries so I don't know the reason for it. Most staff were very friendly and helpful. I will most likely come back to enjoy a good nights slow in a beautiful surrounding. Good communications to town the trams stops just outside the entrance and it is a quick ride with the tram to the city centre.
We stayed here five nights. It has a really good breakfast - nice variety. The location was lovely, close to some great sights to see - the Vasa Museum, Skansen, Nordiska Musee and of course the incredible Abba Museum. The #7 tram runs frequently and gets you to the main part of town quickly. Our only complaint was the noise from the bar on the weekend. Our room overlooked it and the glass ceiling isn't the best soundproofing, but the music stopped around 11 pm. The staff was friendly and helpful.
For a hotel on top of the ABBA museum, the POP House is a really good hotel. Location wise, it's great. Djurgarden is a lovely island and the walking/running track around the outside is incredible (I once bumped into a shepherd with a flock of 50 sheep on this trail) and it also allows a quick walk into the city for restaurants etc. The room is comfortable. Decent bed, the easy-to-use kind of safe, wifi is quick and reliable. The desk was simple and allowed work to be done - the room is no frills and yet beautifully simple in that great Swedish way. It doesn't feel cheap. The door swab worked 100% of the time. They let me check out one hour later than normal. The front desk guy was very cool - friendly and helpful in booking taxis. Breakfast was delicious - all good quality stuff. Great for exploring Djurgarden and yet close to the city. Nice photos of ABBA in the hallways. I liked this place and it was good value (if booked well in advance).
Very different from my former Stockholm favourite resting-place, the chic, hyper modern Motel L, no-one told me this small gem called the Pop House also housed the Abba Museum in Sweden's magnificent capital city - and there were some truly interesting folks coming and going....but with a very beautiful 20minute park and waterfront walk (or 10min light-rail) to central station, you cannot complain for location. What i didn't expect however was one of the best hotel breakfasts in Europe - beginning with a wonderful range of Swedish breads and traditional espresso coffee, and lavishly building appetite momentum with full eggs, bacon, sausage and a wide range of fruit and multiple garnishings...all built in to the very reasonable cost - and exceptional service staff in all hotel dimensions - you almost don't notice the soundtrack! Stockholm is a city of great elegance, joie de vivre and great design talent - now add starting your day with a smile!
We stayed in Pop House Hotel for two nights in end of july. We liked the room and especially the breakfast area/ restaurant very much but the noise from the street and restaurant near by was almost unbearable. We had a room on second floor facing the street and as much as I liked the look of those huge double glass doors, they let the noise in too easily. Luckily the restaurant near by closes by 11pm so you don't have to listen to the music all night long. Design wise this hotel is nice to look at, just my style! We also loved the huge tub! We didn't eat at the restaurant but hotel breakfast was nice. Altough they ran out of croissants on saturday morning...
Honestly one of the nicest places to relax in an area full of activities. During summer they serve a kind of a tapas menu which all four of us enjoyed and it is ABBA you listen to most of the time cause it is situated in the same building as the impressive museum. Nice stock of drinks available in the bar as well
Very kind and good service. We had a 3 night reservation. We got 2 rooms next to eachother. One room was not good. Missing night stands and missing of curtains. We told it, and they should solve it. As we came back, they apoligized and we got another room. More luxer, for same price. It was great! Clean! Super beds. We loved the stay and even are considering to comeback next year! One word Superb!
We checked in at 4 pm and checked out again two hours later, because the room we got was not what we had booked. We explicitly asked for a twin bed room, sent an email beforehand to make sure the hotel could offer this (to which no one ever replied), yet when we arrived we got a room with one bed, which we only saw after we paid. No solution was offered: no other room, no upgrade, no compensation. You just have to be happy with a room that is not what you booked. The staff is most unhelpful. Location is great but that's about it. Fortunately we found a room in the nice hotel across the street and could leave again. We regret having thrown away our money for a useless room at Pop House Hotel for sure. All you get as an answer is 'yes you booked a room with 2 beds but we cannot guarantee this, you have to read the small letters' This is not correct at all.
Perfect hotel for family activities at Djurgården. Gröna Lund just a few steps away. The rooms are big and modern. The breakfast was ok. Living inside the Abba museum also added something to the experience :-)
Great place, great vibe and lovely green location. Lots going on locally if you want to join in. Walking distance to ferry, theme park, zoo etc. Tram no 7 right outside. Wonderful restaurant, superb staff - very comfy, clean and home away from home. Same location as ABBA museum which was a nice surprise, but not overwhelming if not your cup of tea. Would happily have stayed longer if they had room, but sadly they didn't so I moved to a dissappointing hotel elsewhere.
We didn't stay at the hotel, but we had a great lunch in the restaurant. We were a large group (over 10) and the service was pretty quick, the food was tasty, and plentiful, and the bill was reasonable...So we would recommend it! It was actually chosen for us by a Swede who lives in Stockholm, and he was right!
I booked my last night's stay in Stockholm at the Pop House Hotel because I was attending Mamma Mia The Party with friends, which is right next door inside the Grona Lund amusement park. Having a hotel within easy walking distance of Mamma Mia The Party was the ultimate in convenience, so the booking was never a question. When I arrived at the Pop House, just two hours before Mamma Mia The Party was to begin, the ABBA Museum was packed. The entrance to the hotel wasn't where I expected it to be because there have been some layout changes since I first visited the property two years ago. But I quickly found my way through the crowds to the registration desk and checked in. However, when I went to my room, it had not been cleaned. Apparently it was missed on the hotel's cleaning checklist. I went down to the front desk and Ulf profusely apologized instantaneously and was sincerely embarrassed by the incident. Without a word on my part, he upgraded my booking and gave me the "Mamma Mia" Suite. I did not ask for a room upgrade. I just wanted to get a clean room, take a shower, and join my friends for a great night out. Ulf's initiative and customer service are to be commended. Switching my room took all of 30 seconds. Service like this and a room upgrade in the United States would be unheard of. So, I went up to my room and my jaw dropped. The Mamma Mia suite is a room decorated to match the décor/theme of the musical and movie Mamma Mia. Unlike all the other rooms, the door to the room was that rich bright blue characteristic of the hotel in the musical and the movie. The room had hundreds of little accents to complete the theme. Colored lights, a canopy of leaves, painted sky blue ceiling.... I have never stayed in a hotel room like this before. It was absolutely magical. The next day I met the hotel manager Mattias Axengard, and I told him what had happened and how pleased I was with Ulf's immediate action to make the experience right for me, and how amazing I found the room. Mattias gave me his card and told me to call him directly before my next trip to Stockholm to book a stay at the Pop House. He promised to take care of me in the future as well. The breakfast was also outstanding, with exceptional fresh-baked breads definitely being highlights. There is only one other hotel where I have been made to feel so welcome, and that is Benny Andersson's Hotel Rival, also in Stockholm. ABBA have always been about the most glorious music, painstakingly crafted and produced with every detail taken care of. It's not surprising that both these hotels with their own ABBA connections, also are of the highest quality and service. But this time, The Pop House outshined The Rival. I'm counting the days until I can return. Thank you so much, Mattias and Ulf!
Nice clean large bedroom and bathroom with ta tub. Quiet and well insulated door to the corridor. TV did not work but who cares! Small safety box for your belongings and a minibar for your own drinks (few were offered by the hotel). Parking place nearby with reduced price, but can be taken by someone else and reception people couldn't care less. No discounts available for the Abba Museum which came as a big surprise. Good breakfast and cheap price will make me to come back again.
The hotel & restaurant are in the same building as the ABBA Museum. We did go to the ABBA museum and decided to try the restaurant. The food and service was excellent. It was the best food we had eaten, I had a burger, my wife and daughter had the fish and the kids had Swedish meatballs. The service was great. Do not miss this place to eat,
A great hotel if you want to go to the Abba party next door - which was a brilliant evening and well worth the money. You can book tickets for this with an inclusive room which was much easier than trying to get the party tickets through Ticketmaster and then sorting a hotel. Its an option you can choose on the hotel website. Hotel is also very close to the Varsa museum which was fascinating and also worth going to see. The hotel is small but perfectly formed. Rooms are small and basic with basic bathroom, ideal for one night stay. Breakfast was very good and included. Staff were efficient and friendly. Abba museum is a must if you are staying there. Really well done and fun.
I do not rate a hotel 5 easily but compared to many hotels in Stockholm Pop House is just excellent. Located in Skansen it is next to many of the must visit sights in Stockholm - and even though seemingly remote location from the centre of city it's actually conveniently away from the city centre and accessible by public transportation: boat and tram. I would recommend using the boats - something not available in many cities. The rooms are modern and all seemed to have at least sliding doors to outside area. A huge plus is to be near Skansen and Vasa Museum. The Abba "experience" downstairs is just an added bonus. Highly recommendable place to stay - even though it may look far away from city centre it is actually in the middle of the evening action taking place in the nearby area.
It's always nice to come back to this hotel, even when the service lost a little bid over the last year. Location better for holidays then for business. One of the best hotel rooms in Stockholm. x..x..x..x..x..x..x..x..x..x..x..x..x..x..x..x..x..x
The hotel is located in a nice and relative quiet part of Stockholm as long as Gröna lund is closed. Cosy rooms with big windows and comfortable beds. You can taste the Pop house Lager beer, wich is nice.
Nice grounds, cosy rooms, big windows quiet green place. Very Comfy beds with nice bed lining, bathrobes, modern TV. +really good breakfast, helpful staff and some kind of "ABBA fun" around it all makes this hotel a pleasant place to stay. We stayed just for one night in room with balcony and queen bed. 209. we would be happy to come back someday:)
I am not so fond if hotels that are strongly connected to an activity. I like hotels that are hotels. But this hotel works. It is wall to wall with the Swedish Music Hall of Fame/Abba Museum. I am not an ABBA fan, but I could not resist visiting the museum and it was a positive surprise. It is a really genuine collection of ABBA stuff. Many of the rooms are intact so you can actually look into their first office (kitchen more or less) and the tiny cottage where they wrote fantastic music. But this is Djurgården. Not so easy to park a car for example. Narrow. Lots of people. It is better to arrive with a cab. But it is wonderful surroundings. I was invited to a dinner at the Vasa museum and it is a spectacular walk, so don't forget to take a good look at the surroundings. I had a classy room, modern design overlooking Hotel Hasselbacken. The service was not great but acceptable.
Like some people have already commented, do not come to the cafe after 5pm because you will not find any pastries or sandwiches apart from going to the restaurant which is slightly different in price. The place anyhow is very cool in decoration service is very good and the snacks were good as well! the music absolutely love and next time will go to the restaurant
My friend and I was taking a trip Turku Finland we missed our ferry and looked for somewhere to stay, we had been driving for 13 hours, We came across the pop house hotel through the sat nav, after booking in and paying for the hotel we where told that the kitchen was closed all the other eating establishments where also closed there was not even a bar open within at least 15 minutes left or right when we got back to the hotel the bar was shut the water in the shore was tepid there is only a Mimi bar with chocolate and crisps there was a band playing loud music and bottles being emptied in a bin, a noisy place so make sure you get there early and do not want to sleep.
Staying above the ABBA museum is a cool experiance in and of itself, but the hotel stands on its own. I found the beds way to soft but people on here seemed to like that. That was the only issue I had and they brought me a very firm roll away bed that took care of my needs. In addition, the breakfast was outstanding!
We had a beautiful room with a view on the the haven an the fun park. The breakfast was quiet good. We had no lunch in the hotel. In front of the hotel you have the possibility to take the tram to the city. We didn't go to the ABBA Museum.
The hotel is located just meters from the entrance to Gröna Lund (Attractions), a bit further on is Skansen (open air museum with stuff from back then like houses, buildings, churches and a lot more. Very big place). In close proximity are Vasa Museum, Nordic Museum and more. The hotel is quite nice, clean, modern, good quality. Food was good (breakfast included). Entrance via the ABBA museum (a bit strange). Bathroom clean and modern with quite good products. Room safe, minibar, bathrobes, hairdryer. The only thing that was a bit out of the ordinary is that they only like 9 channels on tv and I only managed to find 2 that was in another language than swedish (bbc news and eurosport). Good value for the money though.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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! 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!
visited july 2015 and found hotel very good.returned august 2016 and was even better throughout.food excellent room excellent and staff very helpfulnext door to abba museum and just around the corner from mama mia the part.also very close to city centre
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.
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.
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.
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.
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??
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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 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!
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.
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.
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.
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! :-)
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
