Welcome to the NOFO Hotel, BW Premier Collection®! Find yourself in a beautiful and historic building from 1780 on Södermalm in the central parts of Stockholm. The hotel is within walking distance of Old Town, Slussen and the City. Stay in a vibrant neighborhood where people of Stockholm living. Sodermalm is one of the oldest districts in Stockholm and was a long time working quarters with much feeling. For many years known as the area where we are located "Sofo", Stockholm's answer to London and New York's trendy SoHo. Amidst this vibrant neighborhood, you will find our oasis. Enter through a portal, out on a cobbled yard and you'll find us. We are housed in a listed building from the 1700s that originally built as a brewery. As the house was built at one time, with a roof and walls according to original drawings, has been completely control the hotel room disposition and layout. This allows the hotel to get a personal and original touch that along with the eclectic decor boutique reinforces the feeling. Upon arrival at the typical courtyard, which can be likened to an oasis in the middle of Sodermalm, enriched it with an inner calm. You feel far from the trendy areas, both north and south of Folkungagatan, where hipsters, taverns and street life plays out like a true "reality soap". We look forward to seeing you! Enjoy your stay.

    « Sweden Style »

    Very cute Hotel in Södermalm with rooms typically furnished by swedish style. The bed was perfectly comfortable, with on of the best pillows ever had in Hotels. Next to the parquet floor there were some stone floor left in the entrance part, remaining of the old building, nice. Small bathroom but perfectly used and equipped with all you need. Also breakfast was great decorated and lots of things to try. You also can enjoy NOFO as a winebar during the day.

    « Great breakfast! »

    (We only came in for breakfast), didn't stay at the hotel) Delicious food, great variety and everything really looked a treat. Decent spread of gluten-free stuff as well. Friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere in the heart of Södermalm.

    « A cozy hotel, you feel at home »

    We stay on the third floor and our room faced a type of park with an old church, it was beautiful with all the snow. There is currently no lift but the staff help with our suitcases up and down - the staff was very helpful and friendly. The hotel is perfectly located. They are busy with some renovations, but it did not bother us. We enjoy the breakfast (hot and cold, including smoothies and cake), We love the coffee and bought some to take home. The coffee mugs in Sweden don't have ears and it was kind of strange for us. We took the hop-on-off bus and had to walk only a few min to the nearest stop. There are lots of restaurants around. I can recommend the hotel.

    « Very good breakfast! »

    Staff was very nice and flexible and helped us a lot. Room was clean and beautiful. Breakfast was really good and there were large selection of choises. Unfortunately we stayed in the hotel during construction work so there were some noise in the morning.

    « Fun and unusual »

    I loved this place. Super knowledgeable staff and extremely friendly and casual, who provided excellent recommendations. When you drive up to it, it's in an old building in an alley and you wonder what it's going to be like, but then you walk into the courtyard and it's actually quite homey. Doesn't feel like a hotel, almost actually like you're staying in someone's apartment. Everywhere was very clean and the decorations were funky. Room size and bathroom were small, sure, but that's to be expected in most big cities. Our room looked out the back of a building so we had a view of a nice cemetery and large church. Location is central and a nice neighborhood. Also, the complimentary breakfast every morning is amazing quality.

    « Brilliant hotel »

    Can't praise the place, location, service, cleanliness of this hotel highly enough. Without doubt the best breakfast we have ever had- freshness, choice, healthy options. Totally loved every second of this friendly boutique hotel. Had some amazing meals at local restaurants. Only used public transport to get to and from the airport- just an hour using tunnelbann and bus from central station.hotel just 2 min walk from medjbotden(?? Spelling?? )station on green line which is just 3 stops from central bus station. Hotel was quiet with lots of separate bar/ lounge areas. Quaint 1800s building full of character.room was Well equipped and very clean with comfy bed.price paid is exceptional value.

    « Over-rated »

    Boutique under construction. Disappointed by this property as it failed to live up to expectations from other reviewers. Rooms are small and bathrooms even smaller. The hotel cleanliness was also questionable, although the last two nights we clearly had a different house keeper which was noticeably better. Breakfast was good.

    « Great location, good breakfast, nice facilities »

    We spent a long weekend at NOFO in November. The hotel itself is lovely, and the room is nice and of a good modern standard. The breakfast was fantastic, with many delicious options. The staff was very nice and helpful, and the location of the hotel, in the quite corner of trendy Sodermalm, within walking distance of everything, was perfect. On the downside, we found the walls to be quite thin, so we heard noise from the hallway. Our room window was facing some sort of recycling area, so from early morning we were awoken with the sound of breaking/crashing glass bottles being thrown away.

    « Trendy, Friendly Hotel »

    Stayed at NOFO for two nights in May. Room was on the small side, but as I was travelling solo wasn't too much of a downerm, and based on the website gallery other rooms in the hotel are more spacious so worth checking to find out room type before travel. Location was within a short walk of the Metro, with plenty of shops and bars within easy walking distance. The staff were very friendly and helpful, speaking fluent English better than some of my fellow countrymen. Hotel had a decent breakfast and was comfortable for the most part. I did have to open my room's skylight at night as the room got a little stuffy but otherwise was a great spot for a short stay in a very welcoming, picturesque city.

    « Perfect hotel »

    I booked this hotel because it looked nice. Nice decorated rooms etc. I didn't regret my choice at all! The hotel is located in a trendy neighbourhood (sofo, södermalm) full of bars, restaurants and little shops! In my opinion the best part of Stockholm. However you are not limited to this area. If you like to visit the other nice neighbourhoods of Stockholm you can either walk, everything is neirby or take the metro. There is a metrostation, Medborgarplatsen, nearby (5 min walk). What else? The rooms are indeed nice as shown in the photos (maybe a bit small). The breakfast is perfect. The staff is very friendly!

    « Training Course »

    Very charming 'homely' hotel in central Stockholm. Peaceful, relaxing with excellent restaurant for breakfast and dinner. The staff are hospitable, courteous and very helpful. The hotel is tucked away in a quiet courtyard, but still walking distance to restaurants, bars, shops and public transport. The bedrooms are quiet with minimal noise audible. Watch out for the single rooms thought - some fo them are tiny.

    « Good hotel with excellent breakfast »

    Situated on Sodermalm about 20 mins from the Royal Palace on Gamla Stan. In the back streets so reasonably quiet. Rooms are reasonable price for Stockholm which generally is expensive. Under £200 per night is good! Our room 001 was small and even smaller bathroom. Just enough room to sit on the loo, next to walk in shower and basin. Breakfast really good, both cooked and fruit, cheese, meats, rolls juices etc - no croissants though. Staff helpful. They have a luggage room to leave your stuff in when you check out, so you can collect it later.

    « Best hotel breakfast »

    Nice hotel not too far from the centre. Extremely friendly staff, clean and comfortable rooms and lots of areas to sit outside and in. Best breakfast I've ever had at a hotel by variety, quality and quantity. Absolutely fantastic!

    « Great boutique hotel »

    Tucked away in a courtyard and backing onto a churchyard this quirky hotel has some beautiful features and excellent staff. We were lucky to have our rooms upgraded to suites, one of which had a Sauna. Very well appointed rooms with exceptionally comfortable beds. Good location a couple of hundred years from Medborgarplatsen Metro station.

    « Trendy »

    I suppose this is what you'd call a boutique hotel. An old building, fancy decoration, nice location. However no lifts and I'm starting to get to that time of life where I look for the easy way upstairs with a case. Some distance from the central station and the taxi was expensive (not sure if we were particularly ripped off or if it's just Stockholm). Better - in retrospect to use Stockholms Soda or the tube (a good transport system when you get your head around it). The staff are young and helpful. Nice breakfasts. Would go again.

    « Cozy hotel/wine bar in a hip neighborhood »

    Nofo Hotel has quite a lot to recommend it, including attractively decorated rooms, a very nice breakfast buffet and a nice location in trendy Sodermalm, somewhat away from the more touristy attractions but with plenty of easy access to them on foot or via Stockholm's convenient public transport system. The in-house wine bar and secluded terrace are also a perfect way to end a full day of sightseeing (though the wine is quite expensive, more than in local restaurants), and there are plenty of good restaurants nearby. The bed was VERY comfortable with excellent pillows. Potential drawbacks: our standard room was small, and the bathroom was so small that the shower doors had to be folded in toward the wall to allow you to use the toilet. Our room was also on the first floor, and there was both no air conditioning and quite a bit of street noise, prompting a nightly dilemma between quiet and allowing some cool air to get in.

    « Perfect boutique styled Hotel in great Location »

    I guess most visitors know that Söder is the Soho of Sthlm. Great indipendent stores for sneakers, jeans and acessories.. Lots of cool bars and restaurants. Heaven for vegetarians and vegans since most of Sthlms raw and vegan spots Are Around This area. Nofo Hotel is Located in a very quite part of Söder Next to a park. It feels like a great mix in between an airbnb Apartment and a luxury Hotel room. The building is Old and and has a residential feel to It. Rooms Are nicely remodeled and furnished. Scandi Meets Miami in some sort of way.. If that's possible. For me this Hotel ticks all the boxes. 48 rooms and super friendly staff. Feel like home. Feel like a local.

    « Special hotel, pictures don't do it justice »

    This was a highlight of our baltic states driving holiday. Initially not much from the outside until you enter the courtyard, then you see the bargain that you've booked, just lovely with a great quiet vibe. Reception staff were lovely then you get to your room - we were given a stunning room which had a private area off the main area for wardrobe/dressing and 2 bunks. The bathroom had a great shower. This hotel is spectacular, nice and quiet but a short walk from local shopping and great bars for food etc. We selected it as we had an early ferry to catch, but will use as a base when we visit Stockholm again

    « Nofo?? YESFO!! »

    This hotel is fabulous. We usually like to be in the centre of all the action so we wondered how sensible it was to stay outwith Gamla Stan. Once we had time to explore Stockholm we were delighted with our decision to stay in Nofo which is located in trendy Södermalm. Gamma Stan is nice but it is heaving with tourists and not necessarily the most authentic Swedish experience. Södermalm is full of shops, bars, restaurants and locals and has plenty of buzz without being too much. Nofo is only a five minute walk away from Medborgarplatsen metro station so you can whizz around the rest of Stockholm in no time at all. It was definitely 10/10 for location. We arrived at the hotel at 1am but we still received a friendly welcome and we were checked in and standing in our fabulously stylish room before we knew it. There was everything we could possibly need - iron and ironing board, safe, plenty of space to store clothes and luggage, tea and coffee making facilities and mini bar. We sank into our sumptuously comfortable bed and had a peaceful nights sleep. So service and room were as good as location. Breakfast was outstanding - so much choice and everything was fresh and beautifully presented. We wanted for nothing and eagerly anticipated our feast each morning. Breakfast was as faultless as everything else about the hotel. Nofo was perfect, quite possibly one of the nicest hotels we have stayed in. We wouldn't stay anywhere else if we are lucky enough to visit beautiful Stockholm again.

    « This place was so fabulous »

    When you arrive you may feel some trepidation; the entrance is underwhelming, but once you get inside, this place is magical. The public spaces are fun, idiosyncratic, and charming; the courtyard in the sun is so peaceful and accommodating, and the rooms (we had a small suite) are beautiful, restful and calm. Sodermalm, which I call the Brooklyn of Stockholm, is buzzing with great stores and restaurants, interesting bars and even more interesting people, and this hotel is at the heart of it all. The breakfasts are amazingly good, and the ability to take your plate outside and eat under the trees in the courtyard is a real plus. All kinds of travelers are here; hipsters, rock stars, young families, older guests, you name it, Everyone is made to feel so welcome and the staff is absolutely charming and totally helpful. I am looking for an excuse to come back to Stockholm soon so I can stay here !

    « Perfect hosts »

    We stayed st the start and at the end of our midsummer break in Sweden. They were very helpful in advising on transport from the airport and to be honest it's easier and marginally cheaper to take a taxi door to door if you are 2 or more. It was well located and close to some good restaurants. On our return we were unexpectedly upgraded to a suite- amazing experience after 3 days in the wild without electricity!! We would definitely recommend this hotel - staff are very helpful and breakfast was spot on perfectly presented and seating meant you got to know other guests

    « Great Hostel and Hotel »

    We stayed here only two night on our way home from Russia. We had a double room with bath and shower. The staff is very helpful. Their wine tasting bar is a fun place. The location is centrally located and only a 10-15 minute walk to Gamla Stan old town

    « Clean and quiet boutique hotel »

    Our group of three friends stayed at the Nofo Hotel for two nights during a recent visit to Stockholm. We loved this hotel. It's located in the trendy Sodermalm neighborhood but sits on a quiet side street, so there is no traffic noise. There's a lovely courtyard, which is a perfect place to relax when the weather is nice. We made a mistake when we booked our room and had only requested a double. The hotel staff was incredibly friendly and helped us upgrade to a larger room upon checkin. We ate a light dinner in the restaurant on our final night, and while the menu is very limited, the food was delicious. I would certainly stay here again!

    « No elevator, but I loved this quirky hotel (and its location) »

    I always try not to use a taxi when I travel abroad, so when I arrived at Stockholms södra (or Stockholm South) I followed my own sense of direction and walked to the NOFO Hotel, having already taken a train from Arlanda Airport. If you're going to do this, beware: the journey from Uppsala station is very expensive, so instead take a short bus journey, the 583 ? no more than 15 minutes ? to Marsta and go direct to Stockholms södra, it takes about 30 minutes. From Stockholms södra it's no more than 10 minutes on foot: you come out of the station's main exit and go straight across the street and keep walking until you reach a kind of square. Cross the road and then bear right and take the first road you see that is effectively a left turn, but basically you're still moving roughly straight ahead from the station and you'll find the hotel on your left. It's a quirky place. There's a lovely secluded courtyard (perfect on a warm, sunny day) and then there's the hotel reception area, which is dark and cosy and perfect. Check-in was easy and I was given room 315, a tiny room with a single bed where, I'll be honest, it would have been impossible to swing a cat. It was, however, a very small ?apartment' in a sense with a bedroom and a bathroom. I must point out that the NOFO Hotel used to be the Columbus Hotel, but it's also been a brewery and once served as a barracks for the city guard. It's also listed, which means there is no elevator and you have to walk. Fine if you're able-bodied, but if not see if they have rooms on the ground floor or, at the very least, on the first (depending on how immobile you are). The room was small, but it was fine. It had a flatscreen television on the wall opposite the single bed, a small desk on which I could rest my lap top and a few hooks with coat hangers instead of a wardrobe. Not a problem for me, but it might be for others, but then I expect they give their single rooms to lone travellers like me; there are ?proper rooms' and judging by the quirkiness of the hotel, they're probably pretty cool. I slept well, which was good, and the only downside I could think of was the view from the Velux window of tree tops and sky ? not that good in other words, but this isn't a complaint as most of the so-called ?views' from the hotels I've stayed in have been poor (buildings) so swaying tree tops and blue sky is nice and surreal. One big complaint: the shower in the bathroom, I couldn't get hot water on day one and on day two I got it but only after considerable faffing around, which annoyed me. It might have been me, but it's rare that I don't get a hot shower in the morning. Room 315 is right on the stairs so there's a very real possibility of falling out of the room, tripping on the stairs and ending up in a crumpled mess on the landing. Fortunately, it didn't happen, but it could have. So, on to breakfast: very good ? a wide selection of ?stuff' hot and cold. What baffled me was the tea situation. There were teabags, but they were empty. The deal was that guests filled their own teabags with the leaf tea provided in glass jars. Call me an idiot, but I couldn't figure it out on day one; it was only on day two when I saw another guest with what looked like paper tissues dipped in a mug of hot water that I finally clicked. Unfortunately, it meant that I didn't have tea for breakfast, just very strong, black coffee. Again, it wasn't a problem. It is possible to eat at the NOFO, but I got the impression that the food was light and designed to accompany the wine, for which the hotel has a reputation. There are, however, some extremely decent restaurants nearby and the receptionist will recommend them to you. I enjoyed Bistroteket and Bistro Boheme. The area in which the hotel is located, Södermalm, is a pretty laid back and quiet part of Stockholm, which is perfect for me; add a decent and quirky hotel like the NOFO and it's heavenly. I would definitely return, but I might ask for lessons in how to work that shower, unless it was a problem specific to room 315.

    « Unbelievably cosy city hotel »

    We stayed only for one night, to celebrate Midsummer in Stockholm. We couldn't have ended up at a more perfect place to stay at. We walked from the Central Station, took about 20-30mins, which is nice to be able to walk straight through "old town" and to grab some snacks along the way. It's close to pretty much everything, and its nicely hidden away with its own court yard, with greenery and plenty of seating out front. The staff welcoming us was very polite and helpful, giving all the proper information about the hotel and everything they have to offer, such as the impressive breakfast and a wine bar. The room was super cute and,modern swedish, so traditional and cosy! Walking down the hallway to our room was impressive we thought, wooden floors with oriental rugs spaced out and modern poster/paintings on the walls. This is for sure not one of those cookie cutter hotels with no personality! The bed was super soft ( and you'll get 2 huge fluffy pillows ) needless to say we slept like royalty. The bathroom was also spacious and cute and the fixtures very nice. We also had a view of greenery from the huge window that you actually fit to sit in. All and all it was a great hotel as there's nothing to complain about, not the price, nothing. Whenever we will go to Stockholm again, this will be our choice to stay at. Hope you guys will enjoy it as much as we did!

    « Excellent breakfast »

    Stayed at this hotel for a short stay in Stockholm. Small but very comfortable rooms. Lovely helpful staff who were only too happy to book taxis or arrange restaurant booking. Fabulous breakfast but most important catered for gluten and lactose intolerance. The best breakfast I have had in ages!!

    « Fantastic breakfast. Friendly staff. Cosy atmosphere. Room only ok. »

    The room was ok. Not as vibrant as presented on photos. Worn carpets. Interior felt slightly boring. Shower compartment was missing a shelf to place products etc. Breakfast, staff & atmosphere make this hotel still worth a visit.

    « Great location on Sodermalm »

    Lovely little hotel in a great location. Handy for the T Bana, Fotografiska and a great selection of bars and restaurants. The breakfast choice is excellent. The rooms are small (but as you would expect for a City Centre) and the room we had was not suitable for less mobile customers. Would recommend especially for guests who like nightlife.

    « Wonderful Boutique Hotel »

    First, this hotel is located about .3 mile from the T stop Medborgarplatsen. And it's pretty much a straight shot, turning off of the main road on the next block to reach the hotel's street. When I first saw the sign for the hotel, I was a bit disappointed thinking I chose a hotel that was not worthy of being 4-stars. But as I entered the lobby I was pleasantly surprised by the quaint feeling and old-world charm. The rooms were even more impressive, decorated with a Copenhagen bicycle motif and a mix of modern accents and old world trim, doors, flooring, etc. The bathroom was generously sized for Swedish standards as was the room (I had two twin beds). Now, for the hotel itself, they offered a wonderful breakfast (included in room rate) each morning full of traditional Swedish delights, and at night turned the lobby area into a wine bar. They even have a nice courtyard with patio tables/chairs for your enjoyment while drinking a bottle of wine. I would definitely recommend this hotel and next time I am in Stockholm I will be staying here again. One word of caution - there is no elevator in the hotel, although the staff will help you with your luggage if needed.

    « Peaceful yet lovely »

    We stayed here for 3 nights, tucked away in a courtyard is this lovely hotel. As it's slightly tucked away it was so peaceful but at the same time is central to many bars and restaurants plus the metro Rooms were not air conditioned but even though it was warm it was fine with the windows open Staff are very friendly and helpful and the breakfast had a good selection and plenty of it Would recommend this hotel to others

    « Comfortable hotel with great decor »

    Great location, staff, breakfast (incredible!), and modern decor in rooms and throughout hotel. Highly recommended. Typical smaller European bathroom but had everything you'd need. Great neighborhood to stay in in Stockholm - very walkable and the bus and subway are within spitting distance. Even though in the middle of the city, quiet for sleeping at night.

    « A very nice hotel in the south main part of Stockholm. »

    The location of this hotel is one of the best I have stayed in when being in Stockholm. Calm. No traffic and my room was located with a view of the cemitary. I like cemitaries, so what could be an issues for some is not an issue for me. I did not use the bar but several people did. And they seemed to enjoy it.

    « Nice hotel near Medborgarplatsen »

    Nice hotel in Sofo, sorry Nofo. Great location, friendly staff, clean (except for the window setback), tasty breakfast with enough choices, nice view if you like cemeteries and I do. If you enjoy space try a double room. The only minus is the lack of information that you have to grab bathroom accessories down stairs.

    « Home Away from Home in Stockholm »

    Stayed with a group of friends in the third floor loft (hostel). It was a wonderful experience; the accommodations were clean, the staff was incredible and accommodating and the vibe was great. We planned to stay one night but after out plans fell through we returned straight to NOFO. They offer late check-out and luggage storage so it was easy to schedule our stay in the most convenient way possible.

    « Long and pleasant stay at Nofo »

    I had a long stay here for several weeks this December. It really is a lovely hotel, that falls neatly in the "boutique" category. In the middle of the Södermalm district, and if you like vibrancy and are not familiar with Stockholm this really is the area to stay for restaurants, coffee shops, and people atmosphere. Upmarket hipsters abound, sporting uber stylish beardage. And many a great bar (Oh man, try the Himlan skybar for an exey cocktail and stunning view - will write about that too). Unless you prefer a far more touristy setting, olde-worlde charm, and strings of souvenir shops, in which case go for the old town (Gamla Stan). Anyway, back to Nofo, only a 3 min walk from the underground station (Medborgarplatsen). Breakies are good. Staff friendly. The rooms are varied in decor (hence boutique), and whereas I started off in one at the top of the building, which was a little cramped and the decor was simple (think Ikea), I then moved to a very plush room lower down, which ticked all the boxes. Loved it. I agree with other Tripadvisors' about the (apparently new decision) for lack of bathroom pampering accessories. A single pump dispenser soap. Not a great call - felt budget not boutique. These little things count in boutique hotels, especially when you are paying a boutique hotel price. Also a tad stingy on the pillows (a single person staying = 1 pillow). But these are minor points. Still a good find. Would stay again. Oh, almost forgot - they don't do much in the way of dining (bar breakfast), though personally I prefer not to eat in hotels, and this is certainly a place where exploring is key, and plenty of great and varied restaurants to choose from.

    « Nice and cosy »

    We stayed a night because our flight was delayed and we missed our ferry connection. I chose this hotel because it was close to the terminal, but this turned out to be my kind of hotel. The reception and breakfast area was all wood, nice and cosy. Room was small but tastefully decorated. We arrived late and the kitchen was closed, but they kindly fixed us some sandwiches. We had to leave early in the morning, so they offered to come early for the breakfast at 6 am for most of the things are ready. The breakfast, even without hot dishes, was one of the best I have had in an European hotel. The wine celler looked attractive, too. Could have stayed longer.

    « Loved the charm and location »

    Had 3 nights recently in a Superior double room that was actually a one bedroom suite which was a lovely surprise, as we were travelling with our daughter so she had the lounge area to herself to sleep in (double sofa bed). Great location, surrounded by lots of restaurants and just a short walk to the TBana and buses. The breakfast was amazing, so much choice and delicious. The hotel is full of charm and history. Would definitely stay again!

    « Nice but..... »

    No doubt that the hotel looks cool and it's in a nice location. The breakfast is also good and the wine bar it's nice.......BUT and these are not small "but" if you ask me: I was given a room so small i had to put my luggage (a normal suitcase) on my bed and sleep with her, they no longer (apparently new policy) offer toiletries in all the rooms so make sure you check or bring your own. Sorry but i won't be coming back p.s.: no elevator.....

    « Good for Business »

    I stayed at this hotel for business trip. Position: very good! Close the city center and not so far from a Metro Station Rooms: not so big, I always booked a double room single use but they gave me a single room. It's not a problem because they are really well cleaned. Breakfast: good, with a lot of food. Reception: very available and helpful. WiFi Connection: free but the quality could be better

    « Good location in Södermalm, but slightly overpriced (hostel section, 3rd floor) »

    Positive: - Location (Södermalm). - Quiet (only form outside noise, as most rooms face an inner yard). One facade of NOFO is directly opposite a glass recycle station which seems to be used 24/7... - Wine bar that serves as well quite a wide range of locally brewed beers. Negative: - Value for the money: For the same price you can get your own toilet/shower with more space in a similar centrally located hotel in Stockholm. - Noise insulation from the inside (hostel, 3rd floor). Through the very thin wooden room doors one can basically hear EVERYTHING that is going on in the hallway (in particular the doors of the other rooms falling in the lock...). I would label this particular inconvenience unacceptable for the price range. - Be aware that If you book the "cheaper" hostel option on the 3rd floor, you end up with shared bathroom/toilet facilities. - Breakfast is not included in the price for the night (165 SEK / approx. 18 Euros / approx. 20 US-$ per person extra). - No washing basin in your room (hostel, 3rd floor). Even if you want to brush your teeth or quickly wash your face, you have to use the shared facilities. - No elevator. Even if building an elevator is not possible, there are other alternatives to help guests getting their (heavy) luggage to one of the 3 floors (be creative!).

    My friend and I stayed here the end of July beginning of August. The hotel is in a very old building that was originally some sort of stables. It has a very large/expansive courtyard complete with several very large heavily fruiting cherry trees with several tables and chairs for the guests. The staff are very friendly which is always helpful. The rooms are quaint and sort of old worldly with a retro feel, not super large but certainly large enough and the beds are very comfortable. The rooms have fridges, and tea making facilities. Wifi is included and the reception is good. The bathroom is very clean and roomy. The highlight is the breakfast, a most delightful smorgasbord including all sorts of meats, cheeses, eggs filled with seafood and topped with dill and all sorts of breads and cereals including yogurts and fruit. Don't miss the mixed berry comport that they make from cherries, blueberries and vine berries as it is absolutely delicious and not to sweet....you'll be back for seconds! The breakfast seating area is pleasant again with a quirky lavish retro feel. The area is interesting and the station is very close. I certainly give this hotel my tick of approval.

    Great, quirky hotel in a very convenient location. Ideal for walking to local restaurants and bars. Great courtyard for enjoying a glass of wine. Nice staff. Parking over the road in an underground car park. Free wifi which was very good. Breakfast selection is excellent. Would stay here again.

    « NoFo / SoFo ? perfect place to stay! »

    Chose this hotel for its location and the information found in Tripadvisor ? and was very pleased as it was exactly what I was looking for: Special atmosphere of an old building in nice surroundings, spacious room with wonderful view to a park. Second floor without a lift means some steps to climb but that was no problem for us (me and my 16 years old daughter). Lovely old wooden floors, simple Scandinavian style (reminded me of some visits to Stockholm as a kid), nice bathroom, flat TV screen... The inner courtyard was lovely as it was hot in August in the evening ? really enjoyed it after a heavy buffet dinner and plenty of walk in the city? Maybe this is not a hotel for uptight businessmen (easygoing ones, have a go!) or disabled people, but great for you who are bored with standardized chain hotels. And, what always makes a place: The staff is really friendly and helpful, so, absolutely recommended! One suggestion to the hotel management, though: In the bathroom there was next to no place where to put your cosmetics / toiletry bag (only a small rack by the toilet seat); wouldn´t (for instance a glass) shelf fit under the mirror?? Anyway, will return!

    « Södermalm silence »

    Cool quaint hotel, tho staff not so experianced. Smell in the bathroom. We considered age of the hotels building. Near to Hermans :), near to Fotografiska, near to Medborgarplatsen, near to Bikram Yoga studio and subway. Great pizza just few streets down.

    « Nice and quaint »

    I stayed in the loft which is the cheaper part of the hotel as in it has shared toilets and showers. So the room was nice, TV is tiny and limited channels. No lift so going up and down 3 flights stairs becomes tedious. Showers and toilets are spotless. Reception are great and helpful ( Nicolas) and a lovely courtyard where you can drink from wine bar. Location is brilliant as central to Soderhalm and near tube. Great experience, I did not have breakfast so no review on that, sorry. View from loft was nice as well.

    « A nice experience »

    NoFo was a pleasant surprise. A good location, a lovely garden, nice room and a delicious breakfast. The atmosphere was good and the building itself was fascinating. The stairs might be a challenge and some people might miss the air conditioning. We didn't miss anything, just enjoyed our short stay. Would come back anytime.

    « Best hostel I've experienced so far »

    Great location, nice rooms, delicious breakfast, friendly staff. Will be coming back to this hostel if I'm ever in Stockholm again. Small annoyance: Your toiletpaper is like a rasp, not nice if you just came back from a week long camping trip in the Swedish wild.

    « A very nice place! »

    Loved staying here! After reading some of the reviews I was worried that my room would be a disappointment but it actually was really nice. I booked a single room and the price was quite low compared to others places in Stockholm. The single room was very cozy and there was just enough space for one person aka me :D Why would I need more space if all I want to do after a long day of exploring and walking is to take a shower and go to bed? The bed is really nice and comfortable, by the way. The only problem I faced was the total absence of shelves in the bathroom. But oh well. This didn't spoil the experience. There was a lovely area by the window in my room where I could sit with a cup of tea or munch on some snacks while reading. Oh, most importantly, there was a small kettle in my room, which was great. And also tea bags. Breakfasts were great too! I especially loved their sunflower seed loaf. Also, there was some plant based milk available. Isn't it awesome? I appreciated it very much as a vegan. So... The room was clean and lovely. Nice breakfast. Good location, close to the metro station and Fjällgatan. Very quiet. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

    « Local, personal, supernice hotel in the best area of Stockholm »

    You can tell right away that it is not run by a big hotel chain. It feels very local and personal. Great localtion on Södermalm with a nice winebar and a very nice inner yard where you can eat and drink. Stayed in a bigger room which was amazing. Great breakfast and nice staff. This is the hotel where I will recommend all my friends to say when in Stockholm, and I am from Stockholm myself :-)

    « Nice Little Corner of Stockholm »

    The NoFo hotel is a great place to stay in Stockholm. The courtyard is beautiful, and serves as an outdoor wine bar, with the hotel staff pouring and making wine recommendations. You can't beat it on a pleasant Swedish day. There's also a nice little club room for cold and wintery days. The staff was very helpful in every way, providing Stockholm maps and answering questions. The room was fine, if a bit cramped. Not quite small enough to touch opposite walls with both hands, but close. Everything was comfortable and the service was good. Maid service didn't bother us when the "Do Not Disturb" sign was out, but made up the room quickly when we put out the "Please Make Up The Room Now" sign. If there was one thing I'd change about this hotel, it would be to build an elevator. You get to drag your luggage up one or two narrow flights of stairs. I don't think there were any ground floor rooms. But overall, it was a great experience and I'd stay here again.

    « Terrible Hostel »

    This is not a good hostel. It's very expensive and ridiculously overpriced. The beds are uncomfortable and the curtains don't block the light, so it is impossible to sleep. I was tired everyday as I was travelling for work. The room was so hot that I had to request a fan. I would never recommend this hostel. Very disappointed. The reviews are very misleading.

    « A weekend in Stockholm »

    Great hotel, for all prices and types of rooms, good atmosphere cool and calm. average priced wine and beer for Stockholm. Exceptional choice for breakfast even good scrambled eggs, which is hard to find in a hotel.Very clean throughout, staff very helpful especially Niclas and the young woman who looked after food and drinks in the evenings we stayed 16/17/18 June sorry I forgot her name. Niclas tended to all our requests very well suggested a couple of restaurants that were really what we wanted, and provided a good service. thanks

    « Enter the hipster life »

    Booked a room with descent price when everything else in the city was overpriced - this wasn't cheap but the less expensive. The building is cozy and totally laid back with a calm atmosphere. The weather was good and many guests were hanging out in the courtyard having a beer or a glas wine. The room was located on the second floor - there are no elevator by the way. The room was really large and in 4 sections; entry, sofa, bed and bathroom which surprisingly had a small sauna, which I used a lot. The breakfast was nice and with tasty dishes. The hotel had a garage nearby but you had to bring a key back and forth every time you parked there, but it was pretty close and not a problem. It was a really great stay.

    « Third floor = third class in hipster-land »

    The location of this hotel is not bad - in a cosy area of Stockholm's hipster centre: Södermalm. You will have nice, alternative, restaurants nearby. And the metro is just a short walk away, taking you to downtown Stockholm in ten minutes. The hipster feeling is strong also in the reception/lounge area which is cool and nicely decorated. The rooms on the third floor are reasonably priced and I was fully aware of that this meant that bathrooms and toilets were to be shared. But they are shared by too many rooms - worse than in most hostels. The bathrooms/toilets are acceptable, but not more. The rooms are so-so, giving a worn and not 100% clean feeling. I was worried that they would be hot during summer (no AC), but since the building isn't facing the street, you can have the window open without noise coming into the room. The beds are small but provide a decent sleep quality. The TV set is old, providing bad image quality, but Wi-Fi works well. Even if the price is reasonable, there are other hotels in Stockholm (First Fridhemsplan) who manages to provide a small (cabin type) room with your own bathroom for the same money. And they are more up-to-date. The breakfast isn't included, but is actually of high standard and nice (although missing porridge) - but it's also grossly overcharged (165 SEK) which is a price level of luxurious hotels. The rooms at the two lower floors are likely much nicer (the only fact which can explain some of the high Tripadvisor rankings) than on the third floor - but likely also charged more.

    « Comfortable & Peaceful »

    It is a good hotel, located in a good neighborhood. You can walk 5 to 10 minutes to get to the metro station and bus stop. Staff are nice and helpful. Our room was clean & spacious. We had a good stay there and I can surely recommend this hotel to others.

    « Great location and friendly staff. Rooms are basic »

    My room was on the third floor under the roof, right in front of the stairs. There is no elevator so be aware of the need to walk up. A small entrance hall with separate shoer and toilet on the left and the actual (small) bedroom straight ahead. Under the roof, with a Velux type window. No view. The room was cosy and clean, coffee/tea making facilties in the room. The curtain of the roof window is hard to close properly so the room becomes very light very early .... (this time of year). The shower was ok, not a lot of water, and no room to put anything down, no washing basin, no shelf. The toilet has a small hand wash basin and that is it. Also no shelf or any place to leave toiletries. The staff were very friendly. The breakfast is very good with lots of variety and nice bread. The location is excellent and there are many bars and restaurants in the immediate vicinity, This is not a 'tourist trap' area but simply downtown Stockholm. I will definitely consider a stay in this area again, and possibly in the same hotel.

    « Loft living »

    Take a Loftroom if you do not mind to share bath and if you like to stay somewhere away from the other "all look the same" Hotels. Great, helpful and friendly Staff 24 hours! Breakfast is more you would expect in a 3*. 5 min to T-bana i hype Södermalm.

    « Great place »

    Economy room with shared bathroom. No freezer or cooking equipment. Friendly staff and cozy lobby / wine bar. A bit noisy area since the traffic is quite busy on the near streets. Location is very good in the middle of Södermalm. There is tunnelbana station and bus connections on walking distance. Many bars and pubs as well. Recommend for low budget travellers who do not prefer dorm accommodation.

    « Thumbs up for NOFO »

    Really liked the hotel. Rooms were nicely laid out and had good facilities - comfy bed, tea and coffee making facilities, desk, etc. Minutes away from Fotografiska Museum and there is a metro station at the end of the road. A walk along the sea front is also moments away. Staff very friendly and breakfast had a good range of choices.

    « Delicious breakfast »

    I'm of mixed views about this hotel. Great location - not in the tourist area and near a wonderful area with great restaurants, cafes and bars. Breakfast - outstanding and brilliant selection. Service - good but nothing to write about. Local knowledge not flash although they did look up the information we were seeking on the internet ... it turned out to be incorrect. Rooms - clean and well appointed but didn't live up to expectation. Noise travelled through walls hence I'd seek a room away from others. Also be aware there's no lift, although they did assist us with our bags. Would I stay here again - not so sure - if I did it would be because of the location and the breakfast.

    « Surprised in a very good way! »

    We had a spacious room with a view of the church and was very pleased with the hotel. They are 2 minutes away from the metro station (Medborgarplatsen). The hotel is in the Sodermalm neighborhood and is a short walk to Old Town/Gamla Stan. The staff was very friendly, the breakfast was delicious (food was fresh and had a good selection), and the hotel is well maintained. We also tried their afternoon wine before heading out to dinner and really enjoyed our happy hour. The bottle prices were very reasonable and the staff made an excellent recommendation. The hotel is a short walk to many restaurants and markets as well. We have stayed at other Best Western locations before and did not have high expectations-besides a place to rest our heads at night. We were pleasantly surprised and only have very good things to say about them. We will definitely stay with them again on our next visit Go book with them, you will not regret it!

    « little slice of swedish heaven »

    I loved, loved,loved this hotel. Trendy yet nice low light candle, atmosphere, stylish yet comfortable. Plenty of seating downstairs to relax. Comfortable beds with cool blankets, clean rooms with wooden floors, our room had both toiletries and a hair dryer. Really quiet at night. Located in trendy Sodermalm area, close to metro, ferry and bus stops. Near restaurants and coffee shops but set back from main road with a park to the front and church yard to the rear. Breakfast was amazing, beautifully presented, hot coffee, choice of juices, cereal, cold meats and cheeses, yo ghurts, fruit, eggs, bacon, variety of different breads, excellent value in a city like Stockholm, really made our trip.

    « Very good »

    Great hotel in sodermalm. Very close to Gamla Stan (10 min walk). Lots of great restaurants and bars in soft. Very close to metro. Great huge breakfast; also glutenfree. Bathroom is a bit small because it's build in into a beautiful old building. And it's relatively cheep. Great value for money!

    « Good ambition but lack of finesse »

    Friendly staff, nice location, interior design were fine. We lacked hot water in our room so we got to shower in another room, which solves the problem, but it is not what you is planning for to gather everything and move out of the room without even getting a shower at first. Breakfast had good ambition but it needed to be filled up, seems that they were low on staff.

    « Just wonderful »

    NOFO is situated in the rightfully popular area - Södermalm. Right behind the hotel lies the beautiful Katarina Church where Anna Lind, Cornelis Vreeswijk, Lars Wivallius and other rest in peace. Great food and shopping in the neighborhood. The rooms are wonderful and the breakfast and breakfast great. Good service. All in a wonderful 18th centrum building. Just love this place!

    We stayed in Stockholm for 2 nights and the NoFo Hotel was perfect. The old building was charming and the personel was kind and friendly. Plus the breakfast was great! The area was great too. We will definitely come visit an other time.

    « Great value hotel right next to SoFo »

    My fiancee and I stayed at this hotel (previously known as Hotel Columbus) renamed the NoFo Hotel to gain followers who want to frequent the trendy SoFo area in Stockholm. Stockholm can be very expensive so finding this little gem right where we wanted to be for a great price was awesome! Very helpful staff, really great rooms, good historical setting - i'd recommend this hotel to anyone.

    « Hidden gem »

    I love this place, it's a real slice of trendy Stockholm. I had no idea it was a Great Western managed place until I came to write this review, feels unique and a bit special. Beds are amazingly comfortable, nice dark blinds, hot powerful shower. Great decor, feels like a boutique hotel. The lobby is lovely place to relax and breakfast is very comprehensive. Maybe there's not a lot of hot options as English people might be used to but the food is a high standard and maybe try to be a bit healthier and we'll all look as good as the locals! The only negative I have for this place is people walking outside your room is very loud, it's disturbing in the mornings if you're trying to lay in. Would def come back again and again.

    « Not impressed but good neighborhood »

    This hotel is ok but leaves me unimpressed. There are no toiletries at all, no hair dryer and no black out curtains. The court yard is quiet though, unless the alarm goes off in the fire station next door. There are only 4 -5 tv channels, most of them Swedish. The breakfast is good but already closes at 10 am. Coffee is not tasty at all, but there is a café called Coffice very close to Nofo where you can get a good coffee. Staff at reception are friendly but impersonal and without charm. Neighbourhood is cool!

    « Super nice boutique hotel »

    It might not look like it from the outside but Nofo Hotel is a small cosy hotel with a boutique feeling. We got a very nice room with beautiful views to the rear green park. The breakfast was included and it was great, everything fresh and delicious. The only con would be that the bathroom was for me a bit small, but in general i had a very pleasant stay. I was for business but it's ideal for couples too. Totally recommended if you want to stay in SoFo.

    « Dirty »

    The shower curtain was filthy and the soap container is rusty and hanging off the wall. There is no WIFI in the room for more than a minute. The staff is extremely unfriendly. Breakfast was the worst I have had in our travels, unless you like meat and cheese. Being a vegan, I have found many fruits and vegetables at previous hotels. There was little fruit available at the breakfast at NOFO. All I can say is No Mo of NOFO for me! I can't wait to return to Helsinki to our decent hotel.
