... museum with one hour to spare before it closed.
The Vasa Museum is home to one of the most complete and best preserved shipwrecks in the world. The Vasa took almost 2 years to build from 1626 through 1627. It was built in the Skeppsgården Ship Yard which was one of the largest workplaces in Sweden at the time. The ship was put together from materials gathered from all around northern Europe. On Sunday August 10th 1628 set sail for the first ...

Come to find out, about 7 of them were related (sisters, cousins, daughter's mother-in-law). Then we went in to the restaurant for dinner. I sat across from Ron, who is retired and living in Delaware. We talked about our other trips, living in Delaware, jobs, etc. Good company! Then after dessert, we returned to our ...
We had lunch not long after getting off the boat and then it was a long trip to our final destination.

Unfortunately on this trip our train's wifi was out of order...all the better for me, I actually loved watching the snowy countryside flying by!

So there we were, sitting in the pleasing, comforting warmth of softly glowing amber lights reflecting on the stained glass windows; the happy chatter of families rejoicing in Christmas homecomings; while outside snow fell softly and silently on the cobbled streets of Gamla Stan (the ‘Old Town’), as Christmas lights were just beginning to twinkle ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Elite Palace Hotel Stockholm
Will be staying here again. Got a great bargain at Expedia and decision was based on the reviews on this website and I was not disappointed, although there were a few niggles.
The hotel is border 3/4*'s. Not everything they offfer as facilities is for free...you have to pay for the gym. If you are lucky enough to have a room with wi-fi connection you have to pay for that too...all this is a little chintzy, and not what I'd expect from a 4* hotel. The breakfast is standard (good) 3/4 * european hotel fare...lots of everything to stock you up for the day. We specialifically asked for a king size room but were given two twins and then moved to a much smaller but OK room. Make sure you get a room away froom the main road, as even though it's not in the centre the main road is an artery leading out of Stockhoilm and is noisy. The main plus of this hotel are the staff who were wondeful and dealt with our complaints; no wifi, wrong bedsize, no plug in the bath, dried blood on a pillow case when we changed rooms, competently and in a very friendly way...but perhaps this is just Sweden! We wouldn't stay here again...not the best Stockholm has to offer at this price.
Stayed in Sept 2004 and found this hotel to be excellent value.
OK - but pity everything isn't as good as the breakfast
Reasonable hotel. Clean rooms, fairly quiet, excellent breakfast with lots of choice.
But a fair way out of the centre and the decoration in my room was a bit 'tired'.
Taxi from centre costs circa 20 euro.
This hotel is not necessarily a bad place but I'm not dying to stay here again. Based on a two-night stay, 27-29 Aug 2004 in Room 1010, here's the good and bad associated with my visit: THE GOOD: 1) very good rate even though the room was tiny; 2) staff was very nice; 3) room was clean and the beds were very comfortable; 4) located in a relatively quiet part of town, about a 7-10 min walk from the St Eriksplan metro stop and a bus route runs right by the front door. THE NOT SO GOOD: 1) Combat Breakfast: probably didn't help that three tour busses offloaded a ton of people right after we checked in but breakfast the next morning was a total nightmare--way too many people in too small a room with an inadequately sized kitchen; the poor gals on the floor did the best they could to restock the food and clear the tables but the holes in the dikes outnumbered their available fingers--hot foods disappeared in seconds and once the juices and water containers ran dry, it took forever to refill them; 2) the tiny room as mentioned above--probably got what I paid for. Bottom line is the Elite Palace has a tough time handling a full house--I expected a smoother operation from a four star-rated hotel.
Nice hotel on Outskirts
The hotel was very nice - clean rooms and a great breakfast buffet with a lot of variety (including various types of herring). The hotel is on the edge of the city though and its not in the bar/restaurant district. We got around this by getting the tourist card which entitles you to free transport on the metro - nearest metro station is about 350 metres away.
The hotel itself was ok but it is quite far out of the city centre, which can lead to your stay becoming quite expensive if travelling too and from city centre.
We also had some items charged to our room that we had not used.
I first came here in 2001, then in 2002 and have just spent another visit at this fabulous hotel in February 2004. Staff are extremely friendly, in the reception, restaurant, Bishops Arms pub (regarded as one of the best in Stockholm) and housekeeping. Rooms are not luxurious but are extremely comfortable. Location, this is perfect. If you are coming in from the Airport (Arlanda), then the bus stops right outside and leaving is just as convenient. Subway stops at St Eriksplan and Odenplan are 5 minutes walk and there are plenty of great restaurants in the neighborhood (Ciao Ciao and Vanadis are minutes from the hotel, Odenplan has great places including the Hard Rock Cafe and even the 7-11 hotdogs are delicious). Subway rides to the centre, Old Town and to Sodermalm (a real great part for nightlife in Stockholm) are reachable within 15 minutes with no line changes neccessary. If it's summer then all can be reached by foot if you are up to it.
Nice hotel on the City's edge
Very clean and very good value for money hotel. The hotel includes restaurant, Irish pub next door, sauna and fitness centre.
Be aware it is on the outskirts of Stockholm but the hotel is well catered for with a bus & metro station all within walking distance of the Elite. Transport takes about 5 - 10 minutes to get into central Sockholm or 15 - 20 minute walk through picturesque Stockholm streets!
Breakfast buffet is top class with a choice of hot & cold foods, cereals, sweet pastries, yoghurts, fresh fruits and hot and cold beverages. Highly recommended despite the distance. 4 and a half out of 5.
A good choice
Set in a quiet area on the outskirts of the central city , we had a very pleasant stay. The rooms were spotless and well appointed as were all areas of the hotel, excellent buffet breakfast included. The staff were all friendly (especially in the bar , THE BISHOPS ARMS ) and spoke good english. Nightlife and two underground stations within a five minute walk. A good choice.
