Day one
Have you read Stieg Larsson's Millennium? If not, you have probably seen The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Larsson's heroes live, love, and kill in Stockholm, the capital of Sweden. In my mind, Sweden has always been a blessed country. Blessed with peace, fresh air, extremely beautiful landscapes and friendly people. Sweden is concerned …

Stockholm: The Last Scandinavian Capital

A travel blog entry by btutterow

The last part of vacation with Mom was a couple days in Stockholm. We had a fun time, and I was glad we were able to make it. Now I can say I've been to every Scandinavian capital.

Our flight left Monday afternoon, and as I mentioned in my last blog we arrived super early as we had missed our flight the day before due to the flooding in …

Today we went to the Vasa museum. It was amazing. It was 30m tall.I t's the best example of a 17th century sailing ship. It's 98% preserved. We also had a guided tour and there were 7 levels. It's the most visited maritime museum in the world.

... celebratory lunch. Lars has invited me to the Grand Hotel Veranda many times and I've always declined, but today it seem a perfect treat for me to take him!

We arrived at 12:30. Lars ordered some wine and they brought some olives and bread to snack on before the Smorgasbord. While we don't eat most items, there were some favorites that Lars allows himself on special days....I make sure he doesn't do it too ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Scandic Continental Stockholm

    Location Location Location and a great room!

    from

    My daughter and I stayed for three nights in early August. The hotel was everything we expected with a lovely reception (including fruit and internet access), clean rooms/bathrooms and the convenience of being close to the railway station, old town and shopping. The rooms were 'european small' - big enough to fit two people and suticaeses, but not much room to move around. This did not matter much to us since we spent most of our time outside viewing the beautiful city of Stockholm. The breakfast offering was varied and plentiful but there is little choice for lunch/dinner in the hotel or room service. The location though afford a huge variatiy of restaurants and convenience stores closeby (Tip - do not at any costs go to the Pizza Hut across the street for lunch - maybe they were having a bad day, but when we were there the wait staff and kitchen could not keep up with the volume of customer for the lunch buffet). The transit systems were a snap since the metro and many major bus routes (also the main city railway & bus stations) are within 100m of the hotel. Most importatnly, the hotel puts you in walking distance of all of the major shopping areas, the old town (Gamla Stan) and the beautiful Town Hall. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a comfortable room and great location but does not expect 4 or 5 star amenities. Finally, there are some great pictures of the Beatles in the lobby from when they stayed at the hotel in the 60's!!!

    Average

    from

    This hotel offers a variety types of room, and I happened to stay in the smallest type. The room is very, very small, just enough for one person to move around at one time. But the room is good value if you are passing by Sotckholm and need to stay for a night at a place near to the Stockholm Central station (2 mins walk to Stockholm Central).

    The room itself is nicely decorated. But the toilets could have been cleaner. Nice location, 10 mins walk to the Old Town of Stockholm (major sightseeing area). 15 mins on the Stockholm Express to Arlanda. There is free wireless access + free fruit at the lobby. Staff attitude could be improved.

    A very nice place to stay!

    from

    The hotel has everything to make your stay a lovely memory: good staff, nice rooms, generous breakfast to kick-start your day and a perfect location!

    Good hotel in a convenient location

    from

    Had a good stay at the Scandic Continental. It is in a very convenient location just across the street from the main bus station and railway station. This means it is ideal if you are coming from any of Stockholm's airports.

    Great Value

    from

    The Scandic Continental hotel is right across the street from the Central Train Station and walking distance from Old Town and major shopping areas. There is a bus stop right outside de lobby entrance and the metro station is half a block away. The hotel is in a safe and quiet area. The room was very clean and the buffet breakfast was very good. Personnel were very friendly and helpful. There are two computers with free internet connection in the lobby. I highly recommend this hotel.

    Great Breakfast, Great Location, Great Service, Owned by Hilton...

    from

    This hotel was a former Hilton and has a large breakfast buffet, the location is great as it is a stone throw away from the main train station in Stockholm. There is a sauna, small workout facility, and complimentary fruit trays on every floor. Free wireless internet is also available in every room! I would definately stay here again.

    Good Location

    from

    Good location, walking distance to the many sights and shopping. Huge buffet breakfast. Nice bar and good bar food. Free Internet access and very friendly and helpful staff. Small rooms with no air conditioning. Good bathrooms.

    Can't beat the location

    from

    You just can't beat the location; right across from the central train station. We had a station-side room which was kind of on the small side. No problems at all with noise. Very nice breakfast in the morning. Overall not as good as Sergel Plaza but close...

    For what we paid for it was great though I would not want to pay the rack rate for it.

    Great stay at Scandic Continental

    from

    My wife and I arrived mid morning on Saturday after an all night flight. The hotel was very busy, but the front desk speeded up the turnover process for the room and allowed us to check in and refresh ourselves early.

    The staff was very cordial and helpful, giving us hints on sites to visit on our short stay before heading up north.

    Hint: Use the Arlanda Express from the airport to the city, the hotel is directly across the street. Cost for 2 during the weekend was 200 SEK.

    Enjoyed the Scandic Continental

    from

    The Scandic Continental has many great amenities. The location across from the Central Train station makes it very convenient to get to. And the breakfast is lavish and in a very nice room with good views. The rooms are tiny but clean and comfortable. They make them look like ship cabins with mirrored walls to reduce the sense of clostrophobia. With a small single-person bed, TV and shower it has everything you need. But opening you suitcase can be a trick.

    Overall, I liked it. But if you need more space you will probably want to go somewhere else.
