SAS Radisson Arlandia Dec 17, 2009
Radisson SAS Arlandia Hotel is situated in the Arlanda airport and is a typical airport hotel but in the nice end!
When you arrive at Arlanda airport, you have to take the free airport bus which depart at place 14 just outside from the arrival. The bus drives every 15 minutes until the last plane and will take you to hotel in less than 10 minutes.
When the bus arrives at the hotel all passengers arrive at the same but rest assure, they are very efficient at the reception. The hotel receptionists have been some of the most efficient that I have met in any Radisson hotel. I have now arrived with one of the latest buses and I have had an excellent service every time. They also staff up the reception when a buss arrive in order to shorten the queue.
The rooms are nice 4 star rooms and the internet access is working quite well. The rooms are small and not overdecorated; they are functional and contain almost everything you need for a business night stay-over. I especially like that you have an ironing board in the room.
There is absolutely not much to do at the hotel. There is a bar, which is expensive but they serve Staropramen and some horrible Swedish beers, all the rest is just too expensive.
The breakfast is good and genuine with almost everything that you can imagine. A good thing is that opens very early; at 5 am which is very rare, but nice if you have an early flight.

Nov 24, 2007
I stayed at the hotel for just one night in connection with a business trip to Stockholm in November 2007. I forgot my camera at home so I'm afraid this review contains no pictures.
I booked the room through my travel agent and I had to pay about 1800 Swedish kroner (about 280 US $). Before I took my flight I sent a mail to the hotel asking them if I could get a room upgrade as I'm gold card member is SAS Eurobonus frequent flyer program. I got a reply pretty fast saying that it was not necessary as I had gotten a good room in my category. Due to this I had some expectations before I arrived.
I arrived late at night (about 2 am) and after a long day I was not going to look for bus no. 14 that will take you from the airport to the hotel. Instead I grabbed a taxi and the driver was not pleased when he found out that he was just in for a short trip. The drive was only like 5 minutes and was a fixed price of 100 Swedish kroner (about 15 US $). When I arrived at the hotel the hotel booking system was down for some reason (maintenance maybe) so the check in was manual but I was soon assigned to room 135.
The room was not in anyway great as I had hoped it would be. Airport hotels have a tendency to be a bit “tired” to put it mildly so it that respect I guess it was not too bad. But it this was categorized as being a good room in my category I would hate to stay at a bad room in this category ;-) The room itself was quite tiny, with a single bed that was pretty comfy, a desk, a chair/table, wall to wall carpet…the usual stuff in other words. There was a big furniture that said something about mini bar but when I opened this it was just empty apart from two drinking glasses. I guess the guests have to settle for water from the tap :-) The TV was pretty nice by the way…it was a good size flat screen TV with various channels.
There was an electrical heater under the desk and I’m not sure why there is that if the hotel has central heating. There was a knob for controlling the temperature on the wall but I decided to not fiddle with it and I just turned of the heater as it was piping hot in the room.
The bathroom was tiny as well with tiled floor and plastic walls. There were the usual amenities such as shampoo, shower gel and lotion but I didn’t really test them out as I brought my own stuff. The shower/bathtub had a shower curtain but it didn’t help much as there was a gap between the bathtub and the wall and hence there was quite a lot of water on the floor after I had taken a shower. Normally the towels at hotels are big and fluffy….well, in this case I guess it was the opposite of fluffy.
Radisson SAS advertises that they offer free broadband internet to their guest. I have used this before and it is great to be online when you are away from home. But at this hotel the internet connection didn’t work. I informed the reception about this when I went to breakfast and the lady was the same that had checked me in the night before and she said that she had done something wrong but that it should now be in order. When I got back to my room it was still not working. When I checked out I think I found out why. When using this service you have to log in with your room number and your surname. When I checked out I was listed as “Gard Carlsen” but my name is “Gard Karlsen”. I’m not sure how they managed to do this as I booked in advance in my name and I flashed both my frequent flyer card and my MasterCard when I checked in….both containing my full name. So I’m not very impressed by this part of the service.
Breakfast was pretty good and they seemed to have a good selection of stuff to choose from. I think it is the first hotel where you can make your own juice by squeezing oranges yourself :-)
All in all I was not very impressed with the hotel. Yes, it was better than your standard and “tired” airport hotel but not as good as other SAS hotels that I have stayed at. And I’m kind of disappointed that I was not given any “special service” due to the fact that I have a Eurobonus frequent flyer gold card. And the internet access problems was pretty annoying especially when I found out that it was likely caused by sloppy work at the reception.
