Radisson Blu Strand Hotel, Stockholm
Travel Blogs from Stockholm
Friday 2 May We land in Arlanda airport early evening and make the short walk to passport control, from here we were signposted to the express train that will take us to Central station. You can buy an open return from the airport ticket machines for about £5. The train was comfortable and spacious, taking about 20 minutes to get to Central. When …
... else? Would we like a credit? Really! Oh well, it was a good idea. We're feeling a bit out of touch. Still haven't had any wifi, apart from a very brief spell at the Hermitage. We've talked to a few people using it (who all moaned about the cost), but they all seemed to be having problems - like being charged for 20 minutes instead of 6, or being on for 6 hours and not achieving anything!
It was a lovely relaxing day - we even ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Blu Strand Hotel, Stockholm
Very nice hotel, perfect location
My fiancee and I just spent four nights in Stockholm, all at the SAS Strand Hotel. Wonderful location, right in the heart of the city.
Highly recommend you request a waterfront view room (509 or 609 are corner superior rooms, well worth the additional dollars) Unfortunately, we were not able to get a superior room for our first two nights and truthfully, it was not up to par.
But the staff worked very hard to get us into a superior room by the third night and everything was fine thereafter.
One minute from Bern's, two from Club Oprah and seconds from some of the finer restaurants in the city. Short walk to almost anywhere you would want to go in Stockholm.
Definitely recommend the Vasa Museum, which is a 5 minute cab ride away.
Restaurant tip: Le Camera. Very nice and unpretentious. Just two blocks from the hotel.
The hotel was expensive being in a nice building on the water in a central location. The room was a pretty standard kind of hotel room, reasonably clean but a bit dated. It was a superior room so i think a normal room would be average. The matress seemd quite old and springy. The view out the window was lovely though, and the room was a desent size. So really you are paying for the location. The hallways seemed a bit shabby. The service was very good and professional. The location was great... we never had to catch any public transport around the city as we walked everywhere.
I would stay there again, but it does hurt the wallet....
One of my favorite hotels in Stockholm
This stylish hotel is located on the water and within walking distance to the city center.
The hotel and room was clean, quiet, comfortable and roomy.
The staff was polite, helpful, knowledgeable and accommodating.
The breakfast was scandinavian and plentiful.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Stockholm.
Perfect Stockholm Hotel
I have stayed in this hotel 3 times now and have enjoyed it immensly each time. The location is superb, right on the water in one of the nicest parts of the city and is ideally situated for both business and leisure activities. The rooms are modern and bright with some stylish touches - make sure you get a water view room to make the most of what this place offers.
Overall the hotel has a very welcoming atmosphere with extremely pleasant staff and a personal feel to it.
Whether you are visiting Stockholm for business or pleasure this hotel will leave you with a very positive impression of the city.
Great position yet quieter than the grand
we stayed here over christmas and loved the attention we got. The hotel has a great lobby with big sofas and good bar food. the staff telephoned endlessly to find us a restaurant for christmas eve-very difficult in sweden.
the hotel's postion is just behind the grand on the harbour side, so in my mind equally attractive. good deal!
Nice hotel in a prime location
Nice hotel in a prime location, within walking distance of several of the key sights of Stockholm, including the Vasa museum, old town, the castle, theatre, shops and restaurants. The location and interior of the hotel match its four stars with friendly and helpful staff, and an excellent buffet breakfast. The business class room in which we stayed for 3 nights had a separate sitting area but a suprisingly tiny bathroom.
The hotel offers valet indoor parking at SEK 390/night. The hotel did not offer or advertise any special new year's eve dinner but is located only 200 m from the Grand (the city's leading hotel) which is a festive and more romantic place for fine dining.
A great hotel
My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights in June 2003. The hotel is wonderfully located next to the waterfront and close enough to Gamla Stan to walk in about 15 minutes. The hotel was very smart, the bedroom was clean with a very good bathroom. Hotel staff were very friendly and always helpful. Breakfast was excellent. Stockholm is a beautiful city.
Great location right in the middle of Stockholm, on the other side of the tiny peninsula where Grand Hotel is located. It faces the water as well. Stay here and you are in rock throwing distance from the castle, National museum, Old town and shopping. Very nice breakfast room. Small room, but adequate. I will definitely stay there again when I go to Stockholm again.
Nice smaller hotel. Rooms were clean and comfortable. We had a water view. Location close to old city, museums, and canal cruise. Staff all English speaking as is everyone in Scandinavia and helpful. Small restaurant which served breakfast and light meals but everything was fresh and deli'cious.
The best thing was the breakfast!
We stayed in this hotel for New Year 2004 and it was clean and comfortable. Our room was pretty standard if a little tatty around the edges. I presume that it is a hotel geared moreso to the business market. The staff were professional and accomodating. The buffet breakfast was the highlight though...a delicious way to start the day in freezing Stockholm
