Historical Traveler Reviews Nordic C Hotel Stockholm
Stylish, but not an architectural must-see.
Stayed here June 2004. As an architect, I cannot get enough of the boutique hotel trend. The Nordic Sea makes a good effort, but is not brilliant. (Their website design is more sophisticated). On the other hand, it doesn't have the "cooler than thou" attitude you find elsewhere. The fishtank wall separating the bar space is wonderful and the huge chairs are great, though getting a bit worn.
Anyone can use the lobby, so the bedroom is what counts. We got a family room, which was small, but designed as well as a ship's cabin. The bed area (with the best down comforters and mattress pads!) held just the bed, but the bathroom was very large - more important for a space where one moves about. Stylish toiletries. Good tub.
The sitting area converted into trundle beds with the same great bedding. Lots of closet space, a desk and a glass coffee table large enough to eat dinner on.
The breakfast buffet is excellent and one of the waiters quietly brought me an espresso each morning.
Reservations negotiated a nice family room price for us, and we would definitely stay there again.
The room was ok, the fire alarm pissed me off at 5 in the morning. It's a little bit of a stuck up part of Stockholm-quite unfriendly- go for somewhere in the suburbs to meet everyday Swedes.
Simply great and very relaxing surroundings!
I stayed here with my wife from 8-11 April 2004 during the easter weekend. The hotel is beautiful and created a really relaxing environment. The room was modern and had great wooden flooring. The TV was a bonus in Sweden as Swedish TV dont seem to dub over any English or US sitcoms or films. The hotel obviously has a maritime feeling and I would honestly say that when walking down the hotel corridors you feel like you are on a cruise ship (Its a strange feeling that you have to experience for yourself). The staff are first class and are always happy to assist you. The brekfast buffet is good and can save you a lot of money if it is incuded in your rate as eating out in Sweden is quite expensive. The hotel is also right next door to the Arlanda express train station which serves Arlanda international airport! I would definately stay in this hotel again. I should also mention that the soundproofing in the hotel rooms is fantastic. Top Marks!!
We stayed at the Nordic Light on the weekend of February 21st. What a great hotel. In Sweden you expect a bit of style, and the hotel certainly had that. Despite being a trendy place, the staff were friendly and extremely helpful and efficient. Loved the lighting effects on the walls. Great location for arriving from the airport, could not have been easier. Wonderful buffet breakfast. A walk of 5-10 minutes maximum takes you to Lake Maleren, which was frozen over when we were there. City centre all easily accessible on foot, and we did not feel the need to use public transport at all. Would definitely return to this hotel, and can thoroughly recommend it.
Stylish World Trade Centre location
Very stylish hotel, with more character than its minimalist sister - Nordic Light (directly across the road). Stockholm World Trade Centre, Arlanda Express Airport train, and Central Station T-Bane underground are both right outside the door. Very comfortable nordic styled rooms. Forget the grossly overrated Ice Bar though. 130 SEK cover charge, including first vodka. Its just a tiny little bar that really only appeals to the photo snapping tourists.
We stayed at the Nordic Light over Easter 2002, and once we had overcome our apprehension at the exterior (office block) , were delighted with the style, food and comfort offered within. Breakfast buffet was extensive and if you wished an omelette, the chef cooked one up right then as you watched.
It is true you have to walk in order to reach many of the more picturesque areas of Stockholm, but for ease of arrival and departure the location is unbeatable.You can even buy your Arlanda Express ticket at reception, which saves time and money!One minute to train station two minutes to bus station .The only mistake we made was arriving on Easter Friday when the city was eerily quiet and closed, most shops opened on the Saturday, but for some illogical reason, the Tourist Office was shut all weekend to the obvious consternation of a number of potential customers.
We loved the hotel and the city
We stayed at the Nordic Sea Hotel in April 2003. We really liked everything about this hotel. The reception/bar area is lovely with a big fishtank running down the middle and a very cool ice bar on the side which is pricy but well worth it. Breakfast was very extensive too and included in the price of our stay. Our rooms were nicely decorated and very modern with a really comfortable bed. Best nights sleep I have had in ages. Also location is brilliant as its very close to the shops and central train station. I am returning sometime this year and will definitely be staying here again.
Stayed at this hotel a couple of times. Rooms are clean and the breakfast is good. Located right next to the airport express train. Do not miss a visit to the Ice Bar - a totally unique and wonderful experience! Only down side of this hotel is that it's not on the beautiful Stockholm waterfront, but you can walk there in about 15 minutes of take the T subway. I'd stay here again!
Stylish rooms, OK location
The Nordic Sea Hotel is right next to the terminus for the shuttle train to Arlanda Airport, so it's very convenient to reach. It's not in the most scenic part of the city, however, so you need to travel a bit of a ways to see the best parts of Stockholm. One tourist destination is right in the hotel: the Ice Bar, where every guest should pay a visit and enjoy a couple of drinks at least once during your stay.The rooms are medium-sized but feel spacious and appealing due to their contemporary design using natural woods and understated fabrics and paint. The bathroom felt luxurious, although the door over the tub didn't prevent some water from the shower spraying over onto the mirror and countertop. The maids were generous with the soaps, which proved to be a useful takeaway for later visits in other hotels that skimp on the free soap. I would gladly stay here again.
Simply the best
Stayed at the Nordic Sea in the summer of 2002 and it was a truly wonderful experience.The hotel is literally steps away from airport express train, so location couldn't be better.The hotel itself is very hip, very clean. Great rooms, friendly staff and a great main bar area. But by far the best feature is the Ice Bar. Drinking flavoured vodkas from a glass made of ice in what can only be referred to as an oversized igloo is an absolute scream.Avoid the sister hotel across the street, Nordic Light Hotel, it's the poor relation in terms of decor.

... gothic church which I am sure had some impressive history but with only a few hours we didn't get to see much culture or learn any history. The next day we set off in the early morning to Slottskogen, the "open air museum" next door which also has a zoo. It is just a huge park, it is beautiful. It has lakes, cottages, playgounds, a zoo (WHICH IS FREE!!), ampitheatre, a museum etc. We spent an hour or so there before the rain started at which we decided it was time ...
... of islands separated by freshwater lakes and a Baltic Sea lock system. The city of one million is one-third water, one-third green space, primarily forest, and one-third development.
The city is beautiful, especially the harbor views.
Of course the first thing I did in Stockholm was to go clog shopping. Luckily I saved a lot of money because I never found any. Well, not the right ones anyway. We had a nice hotel on the south side of town where there was a great vegetarian restaurant set on garden terraces looking over the water and gamla stan(old town). I could have sat there all ...
... head that held some air. No thanks! On the lower level of the museum they have the skeletons of the people that died when it sank. Apparently they can tell an awful lot about a person for their bones, and it was all pretty fascinating for me and Brittany (I think Chelsea got a bit bored after dead guy #3). I could write about this for an hour but just google the thing and you'll see how cool it is. We were definitely not disappointed! After the Vasa museum we walked next door ...

We then left the hotel and went over to the 7/11 store to obtain our travel tickets for the tram over to the open air museum. We then headed over to the nearest #7 tram stop, which happened to be the end of the line so we were able to hop on right away, no waiting. We hopped off ...
