Hôtel Reisen, an Unbound Collection hotel by Hyatt, is located on a scenic waterfront in the historic Old Town (Gamla Stan) section of Stockholm, Sweden. Although the building dates back to the 1600s, the hotel is totally modern. I stayed here for 3 nights in February when my boyfriend, a musician, was playing gigs with a band at clubs in Stockholm and Eskilstuna. I’m fairly certain he asked me along on this trip because he knew I’d find a really nice hotel, and I did!
We liked everything about Hotel Reisen. It has so much charm, is incredibly clean and the staff is welcoming and helpful.
The hallway is lined with vintage photos of Stockholm.
Although I had used free night certificates for part of the stay, we were upgraded to a suite (which is more like a junior suite). In fact, I was given a choice of a room with a view of the Baltic Sea, or one with a sauna. Since it was winter, I chose the sauna over the sea view!
The room has a separate living room area, followed by the bedroom area. It is furnished beautifully.
Our view of the Old Town was quite pleasant.
The bathroom is spacious. My only complaint is that there is a step up to the bathroom – and I repeatedly tripped both going up and down from it.
The sauna was incredible! I loved it.
There was also a second smaller bathroom at the entry to the room.
Lots of amenities!
I looked at the gym but didn’t use it as I preferred to exercise by walking around Stockholm.
Parts of the hotel were not yet back in use when I visited. This area is called the Piano Bar. I was told that the Piano Bar had been reopened the week prior to my visit, but was temporarily shut down when the barstaff all tested positive for Covid. I’m sure it is open and thriving by now.
This is the main restaurant where we had a wonderful buffet-style breakfast each morning.
I loved Hôtel Reisen and would be happy to return on my next visit to Stockholm, which I hope is soon!
