Exploring Stockholm

A travel blog entry by jgrace

My second day in Stockholm began with complimentary breakfast from our hotel at 7:30 in the morning. It was really interesting to watch how differently everyone prepared and ate their food. The breakfast was set up like a buffet, with lots of condiments and toppings and breads and such. Each culture approached it differently. Some liked mayonnaise …

Captivated in Sweden

When I heard we were going to Stockholm, I couldn't stifle my excitement. A whole city just waiting to be explored.


We woke up at 5:00 AM in order to catch our train to the Copenhagen airport. The ride went by quickly though and we arrived at the Danish capital three hours after boarding our first train. I got lunch at the airport …

The holiday started off well in the Lounge at Heathrow Terminal 5 after a quick check in. The flight was good and it was easy to get a taxi from the airport. After checking in to the hotel which is nice and central but very bland international style we had our first beer of the day in Stockholm and then proceeded to explore.We were told the place …

I had prepared thoroughly for my trip to Stockholm - bought a map & guidebook, checked the weather forecast, took out a further advance to cover my drinks bill.... We flew out with Sterling.dk for the first time and although the seating was not exactly spacious, the flight was on time and they were easy to book with. www.sterling.dk The best …

    Disappointment

    We booked the hotel on the sight Booking.com and the hotel was rated with 5 stars, it felt more like 3 star hotel the standard was a little bit bad. The good things about the hotel is its location and the bed felt very comfi. The bad things is the lack of maintain, crowded and noisy dinning envoirment and poor and bad room utilities.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Blu Royal Viking Hotel, Stockholm

    Lovely modern hotel

    from

    When we got out of the train station we took a bus right to the hotel. We had to wait a long time to be able check in but that was okay. The rooms are big a beds comfortable. The breakfast is great!

    I would definatly recomand staying here.

    Acceptable but nothing special

    from

    Stayed here for one night on business trip.

    I arrived very late, check in was efficient.

    Room had a very strange layout, and was rather small, the decor was tired and very bland.

    Breakfast was acceptable.

    The decor in public areas was generally very 80s.

    Quite expensive for the standard of accommodation, perhaps the price reflects the excellent central location (you can walk off the Arlanda Express train at the central station, straight into the hotel).

    I would try somewhere else next time, but this place is OK.

    Would Not Stay Here Again

    from

    The best thing about the SAS Royal Viking is the convenient location next door to the Central Train Station. My husband and I stayed here in October 2004, one of 3 hotels we stayed in during a trip to Stockholm.

    Horrible Hotel

    from

    Location was not central to anything but the train station. The rooms looked like they were last decorated in 1950! Very small and had the feel of a cheesy cabin of a cruise ship. The hotel staff was less then helpful. We had to upgrade to a suite because the rooms were so small and had to pay extra. However the breakfast was nice, but had to pay extra for that too!

    Convinient location, good for business

    from

    I travel to Stockholm a lot on business. This hotel is ideally situated for that, being right next to the station where the train from Arlanda airport arrives. This also means there are a wealth of taxis available. The hotel is also pretty well situated for the leisure traveller. This hotel is a touch above the basic business hotel such as the Scandic or the Park Inn. The rooms have a hint of the Scandinavian about them. Of particular note is the Sky Bar on the top floor. There is a pool (which is decent) and a gym (which has limited equipment and space). The restaurant (Stockholm fisk) is outstanding but not cheap. I would, and do, stay here on business. If travelling for pleasure (and if I wasn't in such a hurry and didn't really need the convinience) I would perhaps look for something with a little more character.

    Great experience

    from

    This is just a great great hotel. Rooms are small but beautifully decorated and very cozy. The location is excellent, close to all attractions and transportation. Service is very good as well as amenities. Highly recommended.

    Good visit

    from

    We stayed at the SAS June 2004. It is easy to get to as it is right next door to the train station. The room was very nice and the hotel was quiet at night. We were able to find a good rate on the Internet and found the staff at the hotel very helpful. We even dropped luggage there for them to hold for a few days before we checked in and they were more than happy to do this for us. We will probably stay here again on our next visit to Stockholm.

    Great location, average hotel for price

    from

    I recently spent three nights at the Royal Viking in central Stockholm. The hotel has a terrific location: next to the central station, two minutes walk from the Arlanda Express (high-speed train from the airport), and less than ten minutes walk from the Old Town with restaurants, shops, and the royal castle.

    Worst Customer Service Ever

    from

    Don't be duped by the hip looking lobby or the hotel brochure (or the four star rating), if you're booking a standard room, just be sure to expect a Motel 6 look-alike and you'll be fine. As for myself, I checked-out after complaining about the room and receiving a "SO WHAT'S YOUR POINT?" attitude from the front desk. Really a disappointing welcome to Stockholm.....

    Good Hotel

    from

    Stayed at this hotel whilst in Stockholm on businesss. Room was nice, clean and typical Scandinavian. Good location, right beside the bus station and train station. The pool area is nice and has a good poolside bar. Dont miss the Sky bar on the top floor of the hotel for great views. Id recommend this hotel if staying in Stockholm on business but if on leisure time it might be nicer to stay in one of the hotels by the waterfront.
