Let me start by saying, I LOVE Sweden and Stockholm. I'm already planning on a return visit. Sodermalm was a windy hole that I will never revisit. The streets were filthy and smelly. The attractions weren't as engaging as other parts of the city. The people were rude, bumping into me and glaring at me as I walked down the... More

This was definitely a trendy and fun neighborhood. We stayed about 1 block away from Marie Louveau's and the Little Quarter, 2 bars on a street of bars. The area was small enough to explore in half a day and had hidden views of Gamla Stan if you're into that sort of thing. Explore by day, play by night -... More

So many cafes, restaurants and boutique shops! The architecture is amazing, you could spend hours wandering all over this island and still miss some cute little side-streets that are just begging to be explored! Gorgeous views from the top of the island and the parks are so pretty and peaceful. You have to visit it!

I cannot remember the name of the place in Sodermalm where you get the panoramic view of Stockholm, but definitely worth the excursion for the view. The town itself was a bit unremarkable, but the view was awesome.
