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.
