Review: Parlan Hotell Stockholm

16 Sep

Tucked away on a quiet street, Skeppargatan, Parlan Hotell Stockholm couldn’t be any more conveniently situated. It is an ideal spot for visitors looking for a safe, comfortable haven, smack in the middle of town, without having to necessarily break the bank.

The establishment has an interesting history: Once an all-girl’s school dating back roughly 60 years, today it has been transformed into a pretty smart looking, cozy, bed and breakfast packed with value for the budget conscious traveler.

Being a solo traveler on this particular trip, I booked a single room for my stay (though to my understanding, doubles are available as well). My room was of adequate size (perhaps a tad on the smaller size–which wasn’t terribly surprising as it’s largely to be expected in a city that carries a premium on just about everything). It had a single bed that was comfortable enough, a workstation, small bathroom (with all in one hair+shower gel dispensers), small closet, TV (non-flat screen), and a window that faced a charming courtyard.

Parlan features a standard continental breakfast buffet (included in your reservation) and can be enjoyed in the dining hall adjacent to the kitchen. It is served through 10:00AM, though I would advise verifying with the staff to ascertain.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. Gustav and his team were excellent and ensured I, like other patrons, were well catered for. Parlan is a great alternative (to otherwise pricey hotels) in Stockholm.

    […] Being a major metropolitan area, finding a place to stay should be fairly easy. Indeed there are several options to choose from. Finding one that’s in your price range, however, may be more the challenge. RadissonBlu on the Strand is a decent choice and is centrally located–a short leisurely walk to Gamla stan (old town) and many other sites. Rooms are on the smaller side and perhaps need a bit of updating. For a very good and less pricey alternative, check out Parlan Hotell on Skeppargatan St which is also centrally located, right off the Strand. See my review here: Review: Parlan Hotell Stockholm […]
