Positive Reviews


That historic vibe

The Kung Carl celebrates its 140th anniversary this year, and many guests love the history and atmosphere that this accommodation offers. The famous "Gamla Stan" is within a short walk of the hotel, while guests love the classic decor.


Quick and efficient check-in

The check-in and check-out procedure for most guests is painless, and over before you know it. Reception staff have been complimented for their accommodating nature and helpful attitude, whether you need directions to any of the local attractions, or an extra pillow, all you have to do is ask.


Great cuisine

Most visitors have described the breakfast dining area as full on most mornings. This is because the breakfast has become known to be full of choices, both hot and cold dishes being available. Guests are content to start the day after this hearty breakfast, while the coffee is really good too.

Negative Reviews


Rooms on the cool side

There have been some complaints from guests who felt that the rooms at the Kung Carl were really cold. If you ask at reception for some extra blankets the friendly staff will make sure you get what you need. Make sure you bring some good warm clothing.


Really noisy streets

If you are a light sleeper then you will probably be kept awake at night by the very busy traffic down on the streets. The forward thinking staff at this hotel have a constant supply of earplugs at reception that are readily available to all guests.


Really small rooms

Most travellers have admitted that the guest rooms are pretty well appointed, but there is not much space to move about freely. The space is so limited that guests find it hard to find a spot for their empty luggage.
