Welcome to Renstierna - a 2-star hotel and hostel!

All included - bed linen + towels + bath robes + breakfast buffet + WiFi +free coffee/tea + free laundry. The number one environmental choice for hostelers with a need for personal touch and a listening ear, Green Key-certified.

Renstierna is a cosy and homely place in the middle of wonderful Soedermalm, two steps from 'SOFO' (SOuth of FOlkungagatan), a young and hip neighborhood full of trendy bars and small scale designer boutiques, a 10- minutes walk from the old town and very close to public transportation (with direct connection to the center and the central station). But you don't have to go far. According to us, you have all you need right here on Soedermalm (except perhaps the Wasa-museum, but we can tell you which boat to take to get there).

Renstierna has 10 rooms with a total of 41 beds, i e small and cozy hotel & hostel. 5 rooms have private bath rooms. We try our best to make time for all of our guests and simplify their journey in the town we love and know so well.

Different choices:

Rooms from 1-6 beds, private/shared bath, bunk beds/'normal' beds, cellar with fixed skylight windows/'normal' windows.

Beside from treating you as well as we possibly can, we also wish to treat the environment as gently as we possibly can and we are on our way to brand our business with 'the green key', a label that ensures us to be an environmentally friendly choice.

You will be treated to an organic breakfast buffet largely exceeding the choices of the typical continental hostel breakfast. Please note that not ALL of the food is organic, yet. The variety of organic food is quite limited compared to 'normal' food, and we prefer to have a wide spread of breakfast choices for you, rather than only a few organic alternatives. More than 60% of the breakfast alternatives are organic.

We can also offer the following:

All rooms are equipped with cable-TV (no porn), linen, towels, bath robes and free access to internet via wireless internet (WiFi since 2003!) or our guest computers. The rooms without private bath room have a sink.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The reception counter does not seem to be manned all times and trying to get assistance from them is a 'hit and miss'. In the 3 days we stayed, we saw 3 different reception staff and not all were helpful.

Location wise, it is minutes from the bus stop with connection to Slussen train station - very convenient.

The best feature of this hotel is its organic breakfast which we enjoyed very much. Be early as the small breakfast room can be a real squeeze when it gets crowded.


This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Not very clean. If you ask me, it's no go.
