Slow day in Sweden

Today was a slow and relaxing day, Julia was feeling sick and really tired and decided to stay in the room for the day. I took a nap for a few hours as well, then took a shower to feel fresher and by the time I was done, Julia woke up feeling better and decided to go out as well. So, after everyone was ready to go, it was 5 pm already. Well, at …

Another short stub, keep calm, more details coming soon...

Today we woke up, then woke Alekro up, then met up at the breakfast, which was tasty, plentiful and awesome. Alekro made another booking and was moved into our room with an extra bed. After all the arrangements were complete, we went out again.
First we visited the awesome Vasa …

Stockholm Old Town

A travel blog entry by tntontour

The old town is situated on an island just south of the city. It is connected to the city by five bridges all quite ornate. The most conspicuous building on the island was the Royal palace; a massive structure protected by men in funny hats. We wandered around the palace grounds for a bit, ducking under cover whenever a downpour occurred. Sadly, the king didn't invite us in for coffee; he ...

Shopping! (Or, Why I Shouldn't Fly Ryan Air)

Sweden is basically a mecca for someone like me (or maybe for someone like me who has unlimited funds), who loves fashion and design. The stores are amazing, with lots of little boutiques and galleries with really unique pieces, and almost every museum has some sort of design or costume exhibit. I'm still kind of sad we missed "Royal Vintage" at the palace!

Anyway, we did probably ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Birger Jarl Stockholm

    Nice stay, good package

    from

    We got a nice deal with the Weekend Packages (or something similar, check their website). The hotel is nice, rooms could be bigger and the furniture is a bit 70s.

    I thought buffet breakfast was quite good.

    Great little hotel

    from

    Great little friendly hotel within 10 mins walking distance of the centre. Rooms are well designed and clean with a stylish decor and good facilities. Gym and sauna are great and spotlessly clean. Breakfast is fantastic and the staff are helpful and friendly. There are a number of great places to eat closeby especialy the meatballs at Elephant) and the walk to Sergels Torg is only 10 mins passing some nice shops on the way.

    Get a suite

    from

    After upgrading from the small but clean minimalist room, we enjoyed our 4 nights in a good size suite. The hotel was very clean, the service was excellent. Free internet access. There is building work till Feb 05 so beware of noise. Breakfast buffet excellent, dinner in restaurant disappointing, limited menu, with average food. Service was again good.

    Worth a stay in a suite after renovation work finished, but dine elsewhere.

    OK for Sweden

    from

    My wife and I stayed here November 5th-8th. After pricing several hotels in the area, we decided on staying at the Birger Jarl because of the price ($130 per night) and location. The room itself was small by American standards, but had a nice comfortable queen bed. The breakfast provided was adequate, however we had a tough time finding a seat due to all the hotel quests taking advantage of the included meal. On our next visit to Sweden, we will probably try another hotel just to compare. If you are looking for a nice clean moderate hotel, then this is your place. If you do decide on staying here I recommend the restaraunt right next door (to the right as you walk out the front door) I experienced the best meal here while dining in Sweden.

    Oh dear....

    from

    Just stayed 2 nights in a standard room (approx £150 per night, 1 person) on business and it was the worst hotel I've ever stayed in in 20 years of travelling for work or leisure. Small room, old tatty worn furniture, nasty bathroom which smelled even with the window in the sleeping area was open (next to some noisey building refurbishment. Breakfast is included in a grab what you can, sit where you can environment. Room service is expensive and not very inspiring. Obviously you have to pay more - at least £200 a night for a decent 'designer' room but if you're spending that much consider one of the new boutique hotels. I've stayed many times in Stockholm and never had this problem before. Overall nowhere near being a 4 star! Don't go for leisure. Business wise you might get no choice.

    A tale of 2 hotels

    from

    Attracted by positive reviews on this site and an offer on Expedia I booked to stay at the Hotel Biurger Jarl for 3 nights at the end of October.

    Great rooms!!

    from

    If you are thinking about staying at the Birger Jarl then I highly reccommend you spash out a few extra Krone and stay in one of their 'designer' rooms. Each room has been individually designed by a Swedish artish. The room I had was spacious, modern and very trendy, each room even has its own song!! However, if you are looking for a hotel with frilly curtains, soft carpets and a nice arm chiar to relax in then do not stay here... The Birger Jarl is about style, not comfort. But well worth it!!!!

    Cool and friendly

    from

    THough the basic rooms are fine - well decorated and comfortable - it was worth paying the extra to get one of the larger, uniquely designed rooms. In fact on our second visit we were upgraded to a suite with very little extra cost. Unique styling, very clean comfortable and friendly. Costs can't be helped as Sweden is expensive whatever. Can't recommend the hotel highly enough from every point of view - except aircon: pretty inefficient and Stockholm was having a rare heatwave when we were there mid August. But we survived.

    Small, generic rooms, but ok hotel

    from

    We stayed at this hotel in May 2004 after a lot of reasearch of the Stockholm hotel choices. We were slightly disappointed at first when we arrived in our room, which was very small, as was the bathroom. We knew it was a stylish hotel, but that is if you pay for the designer rooms. I thought the room was overpriced for what if offered. It was clean, but very small and generic in style. Very business-like and practical, not hip or sleek, like the web site displays.

    Great Hotel!

    from

    Stayed for 2 nights in February 2004... the hotel was great, the location handy and the staff extremely friendly - they gave us great advice on where to have dinner (Pelikan Restaurant)... Although we didn't stay in one of the rooms by Swedish designers, our room was small, but cozy and immaculate. The breakfast was one of the best I've ever come across - when was the last time you could cook your own crepes at a buffet? Fabulous!
