... rural Swedish life being quickly supplanted by industrialization. His dream (and action) was to have old homes/buildings de-constructed, transported to this island in Stockholm, and rebuilt. As part of this, crafts people and knowledgeable folks would talk about their way of life in remote areas of Sweden. The idea is still going strong and is exceptionally well executed. With actual buildings, true antique furnishings, and multi-multi-lingual ...
... foie gras proved to be exquisite. For dessert there was icecream with meringue and berries . A couple of bottles of very fine French Red made it all go down very easily. We had a lovely night. The conversation never ebbed, we found mutual ground in most things and all of us agreed it was better to be here than suffering the election campaign back home.
Our night ended with a stroll back to the hotel and farewells to Robin and Lilli. A great start to our Scandinavian experience.
Glad Midsommer! (pronounced 'glod') means 'Happy Midsummer' and what a happy and memorable experience it was! I timed my arrival to Sweden to experience midsummer here with my dear old friend Susan and her family. The sun was out the evening I arrived and when that happens here, it's time to soak it as much as possible and bring out the grill from winter storage. The nights scarcely gets dark and we were up till quite late.

... saw any Sweden fans wearing the colours in Stockholm all day. But the ultra-modern 50,000 capacity stadium was near full for the occasion of the Sweden vs. Ireland World Cup qualifying match. We were expecting a pasting from Sweden, with talismanic Swedish captain Zlatan Ibrahimovic possibly beating Ireland on his own (having done just that against England recently) but somehow it finished 0-0. Out of the blue Ireland raised their game from the dour ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Mornington Hotel Stockholm City
Great hotel, great city
Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights from 1 Sept 2006 to 3 Sept, went to Sweden for a nexia football tournament with 26 others from our firm. The hotel was really nice, tv's by the lifts so you dnt get bored waiting, ice machines outside of rooms, simple touches that make a hotel great. Rooms were really nice, equipped with seating area, dvd player, iron and ironing bored, tea making facilities etc, bathroom had a nice walk in shower. Hotel location is excellent, quiet side street but very close to the main square which is amazing for nightlife, and very nice females!!! Lobby was very relaxing, nice comfortable chairs and seating areas, breakfast was very nice too, shame about how expensive alcoholic drinks were but thats the case everywhere in Sweden thanks to the 25% VAT!!! All in all had an excellent time and would definitely return.
Romantic atmosphere in the heart of Stocholm
I loved the Hotel, the books, the special atmosphere, the service.
I particularly appreciated the kindness and the special help by the girl at the reception, who this morning (Aug. 15, 2006) organized breakfast for me, at 3 a.m., for my early flight.
I'll be back, thanks!

Loved the mornington hotel
i stayed at the mornington in july 2006 and booked it through the very excellent stockholm a la carte program. i simply called them up, they gave me a fantastic rate on a great hotel, and they provided a stockholm a la carte card which gave me free public transportation and admissions to pretty much all the sights for the duration of my stay.
the mornington is very scan mod with hardwood floors and although my single room was quite small, it was clean and the staff excellent, friendly and very helpful. the includeed buffet breakfast was especially impressive. it's now august and i've travelled through 5 countries and a more hotels since then but not seen a spread to equal it.
the location was fantastic as well. it was easy to walk just about everywhere and if you didn't feel like walking, loads of transit - which was free with my card!
i definitely recommend both the mornington and the stockholm a la carte program.
Great business hotel in Stockholm
Stayed on 2nd or 3rd floor - excellent room for the price in a minimalist style with a very comfy bed.
Arrived very late from Arlanda - about 11pm and ate after midnight in the bar - who were still able to produce a good cannelloni and a beer from a bar menu that I think served through until 2/3am
Can't comment on the area as I arrived and departed by taxi but am planning a return visit on leisure and would defintely return.
Great location and wonderful breakfast buffet
The hotel is located in a quiet, residential neighborhood in between two subway stops. The room was small but adequete. A lively reception/bar at night drew in locals and tourist with live music. The breakfast buffet was fabulous. Fresh squeezed orange juice, rolls, eggs, cold cuts, yougert, fresh fruit etc. made for a great start for the day. We would stay there again.
Central but basic and dated...
Very central location and convienient for transport links but the smart reception area belies the state of the upper floors - whilst the first floor rooms have been updated, the others are now very old fashioned. Situation was not helped by the hotel having no record of my booking (made over a month previously), and then tried to put me in a single room once I had produced my email confirmation as they were busy and needed extra double rooms. I insisted on a double room (it was a romantic weekend!) and was given a room on the 4th floor - which was not good at all!!! Awful smell of sewage coming from the tiny bathroom that made it impossible to remain in the bedroom for any time at all. Eventually was given a room on the 5th floor that had no determinable smell, but looked as if it had been last decorated in the 1950's. Brown plastic flooring, and a major leakage problem in the bathroom (there was a large puddle of freezing water in the bathroom for the whole of my stay). No double duvet either.
My friends had managed to get a room on the 1st floor (booked through the same agent...strange...) and that was a better size and was more modern in style. Make sure you check that you are on the lower floors!!!
Nice and central hotel
This is a nice hotel in the middle of Stockholm, close to the best restaurants and bars. A nice library atmosphere gives the hotel a lot of personality and the nice staffs make you feel at home.
The restaurant is well worth a visit although you are not a guest at the hotel and makes a good base for a good night out on the town.
Excellent location [just 1 stop from T CENTRALEN by tube]
I stayed at begining of September 2005
Staff very,very friendly and breakfast was gorgeous
My room [418 ] was medium sized and the bathroom was very small
They have not changed the bed sheets for my whole stay! although it looks like a clean place to stay
Yes, I would recommend this hotel for someone who does not look for luxurious accommodation
All in all it is a nice hotel but a little bit expensive for what it offers
Nice Hotel, Good Location
The hotel is situated near to all the main sights and city center in a residential but nice area of town. Close to the trendy Studeplan area without the cost and one stop from the central station. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. We had a medium room which was large and comfortable but there are executive rooms which we had a nosey at and looked great - v. stylish in a minimal Swedish kinda way. The breakfast was great and the bar is relaxed and comfortable as is the adjoined restaurant. All in all a good hotel, even though part of a chain it had its own character.
