If something could have gone... it did! Thursday night we decided that we needed to go visit Allison at the local bar, Hydraten. We had to go because Allison asked us to visit her last time and we didnt but promised we would go the next time... well this wass the next time. So we headed over there at about 11pm. Met a few new Norwegians and hung …
... time with the family we were so relaxed and didn't have to lift a finger for a wonderful week. I am looking forward to repaying the Sunesons, Johanssons and Lovestrands when they all come to Australia. I have never eaten so much ice cream but it was irresistible so delicious and on the last day we did a walk up a hill to a lookout to view the township is Soderkopping. The walk was very similar to the one we did near our house ...
... of our morning train, I made out a message in Swedish saying that it would not be stopping in Uppsala. We got off just in time! With the help of a railway employee, we then found the stop for the replacement bus service, only to see that the next bus was 45 minutes later. The return trip was even worse: we had to take a train from Uppsala to the tiny locality of Knivsta, a bus to Märsta and finally another train to Stockholm, transforming what should have been a ...
... things in depth or do a city tour. I settled on a city tour since that served me pretty well when I was in Poland.
I picked the perfect tour as far as I was concerned because it was an hour and half on a bus and and hour and half on a boat and it really focused on the history of the city. Let me tell you, the stereo type we have of the Vikings not withstanding, the history of the city is very violent! You will see what I mean as we go along.
This morning we had a guided tour of the Stockholm city hall where we learned that the architect was as indecisive as I am. However unlike me he can design a pretty good hall. It is in this building that the banquet occurs following the Nobel Prize ceremony.
While some of the others went to see a museum that contains a ship that sunk before it left the Stockholm harbour, we went over to a beautiful park which was ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Clarion Hotel Stockholm
The Clarion hotel has everything that you could want in a hotel. Modern, airy rooms, immaculately clean bathrooms and honestly the best breakfast we have ever had (aside from a fantastic b&b in Orkney). The staff were super friendly and nothing seemed to be too much trouble - an absolute credit to the hotel. The hotel itself has quite the nightlife at the weekends, although you would never guess it from your bedroom as they are well soundproofed! There is even an extensive art collection within the hotel to keep you amused at 3 in the morning if you can't sleep.
The Clarion Stockholm is pushed to the southern extreme of young and hip Sodermalm and will not impress from the street, yet the minimal décor at the lobby does predict the quiet, modern sensibility that permeates the rest of the hotel's facilities. There is a pleasant ambiance as art is incorporated throughout and the public spaces are open and welcoming. The rooms, adequately sized, are trendy in their design, similar to another comfort chain hotel we stayed in (and enjoyed). I had asked for a room with a view, something that most rooms do not appear to have due to the building configuration. We lucked out with an expansive view south- not beautiful, but appreciated. The breakfast room is enormous, as are the lavish buffet tables. Pretty much everything one could want less an omelet station. The relax area has no real exercise equipment (somewhat of a disappointment); it's simply a Jacuzzi, sauna, and a couple of bikes artfully arrange with a splendid view in a serene setting. I had the luxury of enjoying the space alone one morning- too bad that videos were blasting from the flat panel TV- at least one was Abba- this IS Stockholm. Save your work-out for the badet next door with it's pool and exercise equipment. Staff at the desk was friendly and helpful getting us to an obscure landmark and saved us some Kroner by arranging a ride to the airport for a fixed fee. Overall a very pleasant surprise for those that appreciate cool, modern architecture and art
Stayed at the Clarion in beautiful Stockholm for 7 days in July. The single room was very efficiently designed (i.e., small), being exactly as wide as the bed was long. The bed was quite comfortable. There was no closet, only a wall unit with a mirror, some hangers and small drawers. The bathroom was very nice, even if it only had a shower and no tub. The room as well as the hotel were extremely clean. If you have difficulties going up a steep ramp, however, this is not the hotel for you, as the lobby ramp is long and quite steep.
The Clarion is a comfortable and well-managed hotel in an interesting Stockholm neighborhood called Sodermalm. As previous reviewers have noted, the hotel is about 3 subway stops (10 minutes) from the center of the city. The neighborhood surrounding the hotel has many interesting restaurants, bars and shops that give you a chance to see what life is like for residents of Stockholm-- you don't feel like you are spending all of your time in places designed only for tourists.
Large, modern hotel, south of the old town. I had a single room on the 7th floor. It was small but the minimalist funiture and layout gave me plenty of room. The bed was awesome! Bathroom was modern with great shower. The staff was helpful and there's a free internet terminal in the lobby. Huge breakfast.
An ultra modern property situated across the road from the Ringvagen exit of the Skanstull Tunnelbana (underground) station, and about 5 / 6 minutes by underground from the heart of Stockholm. This hotel was bordering on stark and bleak in terms of decor. The wide corridors and white walls made it feel very 'officey' and the so-called artwork on display gave the whole place a museum-like feel. The bedroom was clean (if a little on the small side) and the beds were very soft and comfortable. There is no gym on site - just a couple of cycling machines on the 7th floor in the sauna and jacuzzi area. Whilst the lowlight for me was the austere canteen-like decor in the breakfast restaurant, the breakfast buffet itself was superb.
A fantastically stylish, well-designed and comfortable hotel in the trendy district of Sodermalm. This hotel is helped immeasurably by the funky art on the walls, and by it's trendy bars frequented by the Young and Beautiful of Stockholm. Rooms are reasonably (just!) sized and beds and bedding superlative. Breakfast a feast. Location slightly peripheral, but plenty of excellent restaurants nearby, and within 15 minutes walk of the Old Town.
Efficient, tidy, crisp, welcoming
Well-staffed by persons who remembered and greeted one; good food; brisk attention to small matters (a free voucher to a local Internet cafe provided when the business office was fully booked); clean; quiet; a few steps from a Tube / Tunnelbarna stop; ample free-time options in the neighbourhood; certainly excellent value for money.
New and fresh
The hotel is one of the largest in Scandinavia, with a modern minimalistic and trendy atmosphere. Better than most ind its class.
This hotel had a good location, average to slightly above average accommodations. The food was on par with what one would find in a 3 star hotel. A viable option but certainly not in the top 10.
