A lovely stay
Lovely helpful staff. Amazing wine list in the Bistro. Only puzzle is why cheap plastic seats on the toilet and bed linen from China (made in PRC) instead of Frette, when the rest is so lovely and oozes of a grand old house with parquet flooring and stuck ceiling. Also don't expect any early check-in. You won't get it..

Centre hotel good Location
Sparrow hotel is in a great location... Managed to walk everywhere. Staff were friendly and it was very clean. We used uber for the taxi to and from the airport.. Approx SEK580. There's a kettle in the room but no milk /milk alternative and no good teabags. Coffee bags should be discontinued and instant used. The window didn't open up very much so it was a little stuffy. And no bath only shower. Rooms were cleaned daily. Breakfast was OK but not good. No live kitchen. Croissants were very oily and we couldn't eat them. Fruit was OK but no mixed salad. Non lactose choices good. Honey came in a plastic packet, very cheap tasting. Muesli was great and the yogurt too. Unfortunately dogs were allowed in the restaurant /serving area and customers put them on their laps. I didn't feel this was hygienic. It is an indoor venue. Customers that want the option of breakfasting with their dogs should be given an alternative space. Or breakfast in their rooms. On our second morning there we were asked to hurry up and finish breakfast as the staff needed the table. We couldn't believe it. We were on holiday enjoying a relaxing morning. Outside the hotel are loads of restaurants and bars, it's easy to find somewhere good. The station and shopping district isn't far away. It's SEK420 for 2 persons on the arlanda express train. Stockholms a love3place, nice people and wonderful to wonder around.

The stay was good. Great gym. The only issue I had was when I took a shower the entire bathroom got flooded.

Quirky place, but nice
Spent one night (was supposed to be two but Norwegian Airlines canceled our flight). Quirky property in a cool, old building. Room was rather small but had everything we needed. Breakfast was extensive and very French, so great if you like that and not if you don't. The front desk staff was wonderfully nice and helpful. It's a pretty far (20 minute walk) from the train station and sites so you have to rely on transit. Overall fine but probably not great enough to stay there again. I'd book someplace more convenient and less quirky next time in Stockholm.

Lovely hotel with an amazing breakfast. On weekends the streets are closed down for the night for the nightlife but we weren’t bothered by it. Staff was very helpful.
