Hilton Stockholm Slussen
Travel Blogs from Stockholm
On Monday we left Moscow to travel to Stockholm for the Scandinavian part of the trip. We flew Scandinavian Airlines and had no problems getting into Stockholm at 5.35pm. We hopped on the Arlander Express which took us into the city and got a taxi to our hotel, the Hilton. This is just across the canal from the old city.
Once we had …
Stockholm is one of those places you probably should wait until the Spring to visit. During the winter, it's cold, grey and almost all of the waterways are frozen over.
I was, however, lucky enough to be in Stockholm during the annual Ski World Cup, which is a race held around the castle. They actually have to bring snow in from outside …
Camilla's friend Ronny arrived at Camilla's to pick us up at about 7.30am to have a "quick day trip" across to Sweden. We quickly dropped Cornelia off at Kindergarten and we were off.... The scenery was amazing and the intense green fields and rolling hills continued. our first stop was the National Park at Hammaro, which is along Sweden's biggest lake (Vanern) for a brief walk, photo taking and some wild raspberry and blueberry picking. The weather was coming in and ...
... store, while trying to determine the cost per pound of the meats we met a young man who had gone to school in Tahoe. Meat was about $30.00 per pound. We walked back toward the hotel along a tree lined walk way with planted borders. The plants in the median were herbs and flowers. We had a salad at a coffee cafe by the hotel and returned to our room to repack so that we were down to one bag each for the up coming bus ...
... in the area I had interest in seeing but it was Monday and they were not open.
Had pepperoni pizza for lunch at a place called In and Out.
It was very hot and since I had long pants on I went back to the hotel and changed into shorts AND then took a Royal Canal Tour by boat. I knew this was a chance since I get very sick on boats. But i did fine. We passed some buildings and it was pointed out that Bjorn Borg and a member of Roxette lived ...

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.
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!!
