... of the Stockholm harbor (Baltic Sea) the wood of the ship had survived almost completely intact. The ship was raised and brought to its current spot where a museum was built around it. Great efforts continue to be taken to preserve the Vasa and our guide assured us that over 90% of the wooden structure we see today is the original…making it the only fully preserved ship of this age in the world.
The museum was truly an amazing place and Cathy and I spent almost 3 ...

Another site on our Stockholm trip included the Skansen Cultural and Amusement Park, a combination amusement park and cultural exhibit. They had bear, moose, rain deer, wolves, wolverines and ferris wheels. The cultural exhibits included actual farm buildings, bell tower s and other replicas from Swedish history. Skansen is located on an island that used to be a former hunting preserve for the King that ...
... at a high speed in the opposite direction of Orsa and in the direction of Stockholm. We literally jumped with joy when we arrived in Stockholm :) That feeling was short lived when we realized that Leandra left our one of our bags on the train. I went for an unplanned run back to the train, 30mins and 5 train staff later I finally reunited with our bag. We looked at each other with joy as we were back with civilization and walked to the hostel we booked at 1.30 am that morning. We ...

But wow...HOT! Who knew we would get such hot days in Sweden! The changing of the guard wore us out a bit and it was time to head to our next stop but needed sustenance before we could face more crowds. Finding a place to eat has been a bit of an exercise ...

Lisa had much delight in telling us that she was 72, yet looking at her she seemed no more than in her 50's, with an attractive face and lovely smooth tanned skin. After dinner we checked out the Rock and Roll session in the night club where a non stop line-up of great old numbers from the 50s and 60s were being belted out by the resident DJ Low from NZ, before retiring around ...

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.
