I have stayed here one night, on business, only. It is a modern stylish hotel, I guess it can still be categorized as newly built. Location is great, right next to the central railway station, walking distance into the center of Stockholm (although Stockholm center is fairly spread out). The rooms are very nice, clean, and up to the usual Radisson standard. The breakfast was very good, great selection, quick and efficient service, were plates were speedily pick up from the table.
The only glitch I experienced was at check-in. My travel agency had failed to supply my Carlson Rewards status, so at check-in I showed my rewards card, and asked if there was an upgrade available. I was told that they were fully booked, but I could get a business class room with “a view”. Nice I thought, but when I arrived in my room, all I could see was the metal bars surrounding the Waterfront Congress Center. To be fair, I could get a glimpse of the Stockholm City Hall and the water front, but then I had to push my chin to the window, and try to look sideways.
Nonetheless, I will stay there again, probably just a few weeks after writing the review, the hotel is great, but do not expect too much from the business class rooms “with a view”.
