Nordic Light Hotel
Travel Blogs from Stockholm
Today we went ice skating. It was cold but really beautiful in the King's garden.The technique is to slide your feet forward diagonally. Mum tried to do a 180 spin but she fell over and hurt her wrist. It is really hard to get the hang of skating. I think I'll keep trying.
... Entrance required an extra fees so we just too a quick glance from the entrance.
The rain past over and we were out of the place walking around the rest of Old Town. As we left the Palace we caught the changing of Guard at one of the entrances and some dignitaries leaving the palace in a motorcade.
We strolled around Old Town seeing the Nobel Peace prize museum, interesting architecture, churches, shops. It is interesting, if you stick ...

Tomorrow we arrive in Stockholm and have been told it is worthwhile getting up early to see the ship thread it's way through the various islands that make up the city. A few unrelated comments on the cruise so far: - The Captain and his wife are very sociable and we have spoken with them both a few times already. - The ship can take 700 passengers but there are only 460 which ...
... the obligatory Swedish beer and people watched. We travelled to and tested out prices at a couple of different Norrmalm grocery stores, always getting lost along the way as they seem to all hide in the basements of much larger shopping complexes, but always finding other interesting things before ultimately getting to the destination. When we think of Stockholm, we will always think of pastel candy colours: building facades, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Nordic Light Hotel Stockholm
We stayed at the Nordic Light 11th-15th November 2004. The Hotel is very well situated, near the Arlanda Express, bus and train station. The best in the hotel is the sound isolation. You don't have any noises from the roads or railways. The worst for me was the ongoing air circulation in the room that could not be shut off (at night for instance).
Found the light disappointing.
The location of the hotel is very good, next to the railway station where the airport buses arrive. But beware - you have to go down 2 levels from the bus terminal to the street where the hotel is located.
The rooms are comfortable and very clean though ours was rather small plus we had no bathtub, just a wet room - maybe we should have gone for a superior room. The buffet breakfast was excellent, hot and cold selections and loads of fresh fruit.
However the minimalist decor is very drab and the light effects disappointing. We visited in Sept 2004 when the weather was good, but it must seem a bit cold in winter.
Excellent Location but.... not what we expected!
My husband and I spent 4 nights at the Nordic Light in May 2004 as part of our honeymoon! The strong points of the hotel are the superb location right at the city centre, near metro,bus and train stations as well as the fantastic breakfast buffet.
On the other hand the staff was not at all helpfull or polite, the rooms were tiny eventhough we had requested a superior room with king size bed and the lightning was nothing special. Great dissapointment for honeymooners from a starwood hotel!
The 'mood rooms' are little more that minimalist cubes with unimpressive coloured lights set in a headboard box. These rooms lack CD players, so in case you want mood music to match the lighting be warned! The hotel won't provide one when requested.
Based on the user reviews displayed in this very page, I chose a superior room in this hotel for my 5-night stay in Stockholm. Neither me nor my wife were let down. Even though prepared to meet perfection, I have to admit that we were amazed with the hotel.
Clean as can be, perfectly located, and unexpectedly quiet. Staff very friendly and efficient. Room large & almost perfectly equipped (my wife considered it should have a bathtub).
Cosy L-bar on the ground floor. Unusual illumination will definitely steal your attention.
If you visit Stockholm and want a central hotel, it's highly recommended...!
My hubby and I stayed at this hotel in early July 2004. We arrived at Stockholm by plane and took the Arlanda Express to get to the city. I was suprised by the close proximity between the hotel and the Arlanda Express terminal. Very wonderful.
The hotel room is medium in size and has large window that can be open. Everything is very modern and in a black and white setting.
The scenic spot can be reached within a short walk from the hotel. We definitely would stay at this hotel the next time in Stockholm.
The Nordic Light hotel is absolutely the second coolest place to stay in Stockholm. (The coolest place is the Icebar in the Nordic Sea hotel, which is just across the street, where the temperature is
-6 celsius). Especially for young people, the hotel is great. The members of the staff are all young and trendy, but also very friendly en professional.
The rooms are spacy and clean. The lighteffects in the room create a very special atmosphere.
In the lobby you will also find some very special lighteffects and they play great lounge-music! For all this. the hotel has a light- and musicmanager. And wait till you see the Breakfast buffet.
Don't forget to visit the Icebar at the Nordic Sea Hotel...a typical Swedish experience.
the Nordic light is the more modern sister hotel to the Nordic Sea, which is across the street.
The hotel was very very cool. The decor was funky and fun, the rooms were very spacious and comfortable. Although it is just across the street from T-Centrallen, the hotel was very quiet. There is an entrance to the subway right out the front door and Gamlestan is only a few minutes walk.
This was a WONDERFUL hotel, the staff is very helpful and professional. The morning breakfast buffet was lovely and the Harley Davidson in the lobby just added to the "coolness" of the hotel.
Would stay here again in a minute!
This is a fantastic hotel, clean, warm with excellent facilities. AND it is 100 yards from the railway station! Excellent! Walking distance from most attractions, and a nice cosy bar when walking in from the cold!
While riding a train to Stockholm, Sweden, we were asking the porter where there was a good hotel at and she said the Nordic Hotels. They are across the street from each other. They are called the Nordic Ice and Nordic Light. The one we stayed at was the Nordic Light. It was SUPER! They had clean robes daily in the room. The staff at the desk was more then super. They went over and above their jobs for us. Breakfast!! What can I say about it. Well it was a buffet with all the trimmings. It was included in the cost of the room and well worth it. We went out the second day we were there and when we came back the chef had delivered a very large plate of chocolates that he had made, to our room! I have NEVER tasted anything like these anywhere before. They were FANTASTIC! The really good thing about this hotel was, the fact that the first state runned casino had just opened up a week before we got there and was only 1 block away! So, for a really GREAT hotel with all the extras I would recommend this one to everyone!! Try it, you'll LOVE it!
