So, the day is here! Been waiting a loong time now so it was about time! Sitting in my not-so-comfortable chair in the airplane and am already bored! But Hey! Only 10 hours left! ✌ I'm also VERY hungry! Give me my food!! Listening to some romantic-****-music and already missing u ...
We followed the blue line for 10 minutes to train and enjoyed the 66 minute ride into Stockholm. We passed some interesting countryside with a few train stations that seemed to be in the middle of nowhere. At one place as we gazed out the one side we saw many office buildings and as we gazed out the other we saw a remote looking lake with granite rock sides and a few old cottages that looked like it could be Algonquin Park. The mall at ...
... direct from station to port, I reckon I'd saved myself the hassle of lugging my stuff down into the metro and saved the cost of the bus. Plus I only had 20sek and was going straight through Sweden. Passing the port you see cars queuing to drive on and nearer the terminal, a flock of people in red and yellow t shirts. Cleaning staff, I reckoned, like a private army temporarily at ease before action. Nearer the port a sign asks 'tourists' to follow he blue line. What could ...
... places like a school, carpenter's workshop, and glass- blowing shop with friendly faces inside to tell us about the habits and history of the places, most of which were even original structures from the time period.
We then set a course for the Vasa Ship museum, which details the creation and ultimate fate of the old Swedish warship. She is the most famous and well-preserved ship in the world, with 98% of the structure ...

In fact it is blardy small and doesn't smell very ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Scandic Sergel Plaza Stockholm
First class hotel, one of the best!!
This hotel is simply excellent. It is located just off the main shopping street, Drottningatan and is within walking distance of other attractions. It is a large, stylish hotel and we were impressed as soon as my girlfrien and i walked into the hotel. The reception is large with friendly, english speaking staff ( although i did try and speak in the native tongue!! ) and the lifts to the floors are operated with a keycard so security is excellent. The rooms were spotless and spacious and although the view we had was of an adjacent apartment block it still didn't bother us. The bathroom was spotless and so was the room. Breakfast was great too with lots to eat , lots of choice although it did get quite busy at times. The hotel bar and shop were, like most things in Sweden extortionately expensive but we had kind of expected that. The area around the hotel is quiet too. This hotel is one of the best i have stayed in and the service is first class.
Scandic Hotel mit besserer Qualität
Wenn Sie im Herzen von Stockholm bleiben wollen ist dies Hotel eine gute Wahl. Ich dachte, dass die Scandic Hotels mehr ein billigeres Familienhotel wären aber ich würde es eher mit einem 4-Sterne Hotel vergleichen. Zumindest war das Zimmer für mich als Alleinreisenden sehr groß.
Gute Lage, Hotel war in Ordnung
Mein Freund und ich waren im Dezember zwischen Weihnachten und Neujahr für drei Tage in diesem Hotel. Wir hatten ein reizendes Zimmer im obersten Stockwerk. Die Aussicht vom Hotel ist nicht so toll aber die Lage ist perfekt. Wir hatten echte Probleme damit, einen Platz zum Frühstück zu finden und die Tabletts wurden nicht immer aufgefüllt. An unserem letzten Tag gingen wir um 8 Uhr und hatten gar kein Problem. Also stehen Sie früh auf!! Wir hatten an einem Abend Buffetessen im Hotelrestaurant und das war in Ordnung, der Preis stimmte auch. Das Personal war freundlich und der Service war ziemlich gut. Ich muss damit übereinstimmen, dass das Wasser in der Wanne lauwarm war. Alles in allem ist das ein ok Hotel im Herzen von Stockholm.
Scandic hotel with higher quality
If you want to stay in the heart of the Stockholm this hotel is a good choice. I thought Scandic hotel are more like lower priced family hotels but I would compare this to four star hotels. At least my room was very big when I travelled alone.
Good location, ok hotel
My boyfriend and me stayed in this hotel for 3 nights between christmas and new years last december. We got a lovely room on the top floor. The view is not good from this hotel, but the location is perfect.
We had really trouble finding somewhere to sit and eat breakfast, and the empty trays where not filled up. The last morning we went down at around 0800 o'clock, and then it was no problem at all. So get up early!!
We had a dinnerbuffet in the hotel restaurant one night wich was ok food and ok priced.
The staff are friendly and the service is quite good.
But we do agree about the lukewarm water in the tub.
All in all it is an ok hotel in the heart of Stockholm.
Great Location, So-So Hotel
My husband and I recently stayed at the Scandic Sergel Plaza. It is an OK hotel in a great location right off the pedestrian plaza behind the Kulturhus in Sergel Torg and just a few blocks from the water. The Centralen subway station is just below.
We had a room on the 2nd floor. The hotel was probably built in the 70s or early 80s and it shows. The room was not huge, but clean and spacious enough for 2. The twin beds, however, couldn't be pushed together like at other hotels we stayed at. We had a direct view of the Galleria mall sign, but didn't have any issues with noise at night. Breakfast was plentiful and we didn't have trouble finding a seat (despite the numerous tour groups and conferences at the hotel). My main complaint is that the hot water in the shower never got that hot (slightly above lukewarm) and the pipes squeaked. Fortunately it stopped after midnight, or I just stop noticing it after then. I did notice that the bathtub didn't extend the entire length of the wall, and the furnishings were just old but still functional.
We did appreciate the free wireless internet access in the rooms. There is also a computer terminal in the lobby. The reception staff were helpful and friendly.
Since we got the room free (through Hilton Honors) I can't comment on the price.
In the heart of Stockholm
Stayed at this hotel in july 2005. The hotel is excellent value for money. Rooms are average sized, clean, well air conditioned and with good beds. As erlier mentioned the location is one of the best in Stockholm - within walking distance of almost everything, e.g. only a few minutes walk to Gamla Stan. The staff provided very good service. We came by our own car, and it was safely parked in the hotel garage, where only the janitors were admitted. The breakfast was ok, and we had no problems finding places to sit in the breakfast room. One evening we had our dinner in the hotel restaurant, and had a very pleasant surprise, as we chose a three course summer-menu. The price was low and the food made us happy! I would absolutely recommend this hotel.
There are better hotels around...
We stayed at the Sergel Plaza in December 2004 for some Christmas shopping. It is ideallly located in the heart of Stockholm within walking distance to the train station and right in the heart of the shopping district. The staff was rather friendly, but the Hotel has seen his best days long ago. We redeemed some HiltonHonor Points and the room we got was pretty lousy: extremely small, unrefurbished and with a view of a dirty backyard and an office building. The biggest turndown was the breakfast: during the weekend it was completely over crowded, uncoordinated queues and people virtually fighting for food. If you somehow made it to get something on your plate, you could not find a place to sit and eat. We were luccky and captured a table after less than 10 Minutes and could share it with another couple. It was simply not the romantic experience we had planned. Neverthelesse, Stockholm and Skansen are absolutely worth a visit during December, but consider staying in the Hilton Slussen - it''''''s much better value for money.
Good Value Good Location
Excellent location in terms of transportation and sight-seeing. Very nice hotel right in the center of the city. The room was kind of on the small side but very nice. For what we paid for it was excellent though I would not want to pay the rack rate for it.
Good service good breakfast, no problems with early check-in. Would certainly look to go back if I end up in Stockholm again.
