Noisy! you don't build a hotel with rooms on top of a road and a railway without proper sound isolation!

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Stockholm Slussen
Wonderful view and great location
This is a wonderful hotel in a great location. It is just a short walk across a bridge into the old city and within a block of the Slussen metro stop. It is built over a highway but we never heard any noise until I opened the window to take a photo of the great view of the old city and the town hall across the lake. There was no need to open the window otherwise so the noise was not a problem. The room was small but very comfortable. The breakfast was the best we had during our trip and the hotel staff was very accommodating. We used Hilton points for the room and the staff treated us like special guests. We told them we loved the view and they apologized for not being able to upgrade us to a suite since they were fully booked. We would stay here again anytime.
Great location, Great Hotel
Spent a couple of days in Stockholm in March, and at the Hilton Stockholm Slussen.
The hotel is perfectly situated for both exploring the old town, and having a great night out, with a good selection of bars and restaurants in the immediate vicinity. The hotel
also has a really trendy bar which is popular with locals.
The rooms were quite small, but very tasteful with wood being the main theme throughout.
Hilton breakfasts are legendary, and this was no exception.
The swimming pool was out of order when we were there. This was a disappointment as we weren't told this before we arrived.
The hotel is situation right across the road from the Slussen subway.
A really good hotel that I would recommend to anyone.
Not much to grumble about this one.
The hotel is beautiful and wonderfully kept. The room has a very scandinavian feel to it. the bathroom was wood and marble (heated marbel floor! Lovely!). Lots of little gadgets. The only complaint we have is that the room was TINY. There was nowhere to store our suitcases so we had to put them in front of the teeny seating area. So if we wanted to sit there then we had to move the suitcases to the foot of the bed. Then if you wanted to go to the bathroom you had to move the suitcases again. Also, I lived out of my suitcase as there was wardrobe space for one and my fiance had already taken up the space. However, we found out on our last day there that there were bigger rooms in the category. There were 2 other women travelling with us and I saw their room. It was almost double the size. So, what have we learnt here. If you get a small room ask to be moved to a bigger one. The pillows and the duvets were to die for! We had the best sleep.
The breakfast was good (great selection of breads). The restaurant was also very good. We had a very nice meal. We didn't use the fitness facilities. The gym was buzzing constantly. My grumble though is that the pool is a 20 min walk from the hotel (apparently. I never went to see it, but that is what is stated in the hotel handbook in the room).
In general the hotel is very business orientated. Not the type of hotel one goes to for a weeks vacation. All the staff was very nice. I give it a thumbs up!
Nice designer rooms, efficient and clean
Stayed there for business. Efficient and friendly staff, good breakfast, very clean building and nice designer furniture. On the down side, my room was surprisingly small with a very small bathroom (only a shower no bath). I expected a bit more for this price tag.
Enjoyed our stay at Hilton Stockholm Slussen very much
A couple of friends and I stayed at the Hilton Stockholm Slussen for three nights (September 13-17 2004) and were very pleased with everything.
Since I was a gold card member of Hilton Hotels, they upgraded us to the Executive Floor and gave us all the amenities and privileges that are included. The breakfast in the hotel is wonderful,
the politeness and service provided by everybody in the hotel is excellent and they make you feel at home. The location of the hotel is very convenient to the Old Town, buses and subway and to sum it all up, I can easily say that I would definitely stay at the hotel again, if I visited Strockholm again.
A very nice hotel
Stayed one night in April 2004. Room was medium size but very nice furnished and has very comfortable beds. Bathroom was great. Staff was friendly and the breakfast was fantastic.
Excellent base for a beautiful city
We stayed here in May 2004 for four nights - an excellent hotel with great location in a fabulous city - order the freshly made eggs from the menu at breakfast and the restaurant in the evening is excellent too (if a bit pricy, but that could have been all the wine!)
Our room was on the end so looked out over both Baltic and the lake with great views across the old town, djurgarden and city hall.
We will definitely return.
A Fine Hotel
Jan 2004. A very nice hotel. Clean, spacious rooms with a good location. Breakfast was OK, but nothing special. We did not use the resaurant in the evening. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We would stay there again.
Stayed at the Slussen Hilton in Summer 2002 with my wife and two kids.
The room was great, with views over the lake onto the old town. It was plenty big enough for all of us, the kids being on camp beds. The location is fantastic, the facilities and breakfasts great, but above all, the staff were the most attentive, smiling, helpful and friendly I have ever encountered in a hotel (with work I practically live in hotels). Oh, and this isn't politically correct, but they were exceptionally beautiful too. Highly recommended.
We had the most wonderful stay at the Hilton-Slussen this past summer. The location was perfect for exploring both the old town area of Stockholm and the beautiful sights on the waterfront. The staff at the hotel was so friendly and helpful from the consierge to the room attendants. We purchased, by mistake, a book on Stockholm in a foreign language. Jessica, at the front desk took the book from us on our departure date, returned it to the shop where it was purchased and exchanged it for a copy in English. Then she mailed it to our home where it arrived just a couple of weeks after we returned. That's what I call service!The breakfast buffet was fabulous; something for everyone. The rooms were spacious and very quiet, despite the hotel's location over a highway.We would definitely visit again!!

So after busing a sim card, we can use the phone but not unternet. When buying a card be sure to get phone and Internet together, it's cheaper. Buy and top up and any 7-11 or prefab toria store.

The sidewalks are jammed, traffic is heavy. Everyone seems to be on a mission to finish their last bit of shopping. It's a clear day and the temperatures are dipping as the sun makes it's brief appearance on the shortest day of the year.

At 8.15am we leave for our Footsteps in Viking Tour. With a bus load of fellow tourists we set off for a 90 minute tour to the Viking Village.
The owner spent 15 years developing the village into what it is today. The Village owner was a clever craftsman having built boats, a fantastic kitchen (he was a Michelin chef), a grand viking hall and a variety of other structures.

3 1/2 hours north of Stockholm for a traditional Swedish Folk Festival. They come from all over to farmland, freshly mowed. A picnic lunch and crack open the wine beer. All sounds fab till the storm....fortunately for us a farmhouse provided shelter....unfortunately no room inside so it's underneath for us! ...
... spent hours wandering the aisles with a glass of wine in hand, just soaking up the environment. Bill and I had happened upon a food stand that displayed perfectly constructed small plates of goose meat and blood soup. As we passed by, the vendor behind the counter asked if we would like a sample and gestured to the plates. Each plate had a sizable portion on it, there was no way that this could possibly be for free. "We can just take a plate? For free?" Bill and I were stunned, but ...
