“Unforgetable experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

It is always a pleasure to stay at Grand Hotel in Stockholm. Already at the entrance you feel so welcomed and that feeling follows you all the way until the day you leave the hotel. Me and my husband have stayed here several times and they have never failed us. I leave Stockholm longing to come back. You don't have to pay a fortune to stay at the Grand, if you plan your trip you can get 15% reduction and sometimes more. You don't need to book the suite to feel like royalty, even their classic room is grand. But best of all is the staff, so classy and refined.
On top of that you can use the Spa which is one of the best I have visited, most times we have been there we were almost alone, depending on the time of the day and on the day of the week.
We have been travelling around the world since the seventies, our taste has changed since then, we are more choosy, this is why we prefer to stay a few days at the Grand before we leave Sweden for Spain, with a taste of the grand old world

Room Tip: It all depends on your preferences and your budget. We usually use the hotel to sleep, it is nice to...

A lovely hotel situated right on the harbourfront in Stockholm so convenient for catching sight-seeing harbour cruise boats and strolling around this picturesque city.
Our prestige room was small for $'s outlaid but the bedding was comfortable. An unexpected surprise for us was that the city was celebrating the Festival of the Sea, lobsters. Very interesting little crustations, very different to lobsters I ever seen but the locals were animated in their enthusiasm to eat as many lobsters as they could during the festival. We visited two years ago following a Silversea Baltic cruise and decided to spend four nights before flying elsewhere. Both dining rooms overlook the busy harbour with good food but, it is expensive. We laughed when the strolling guitarist asked for a 'request' to which we replied anything ABBA. "ABBA who?"
Great location.

A very classy hotel , for people that like traditional hotels with a bit of history . The service is good , i found the reception a bit too formal but the consierge and the bar staff were extremly friendly . The veranda was really nice with some amazing views and good dishes . Order an apple toddie while sitting in the bar . The prices are really exprensive like everything else in Stockholm. I will surely comeback .

This is the place to stay if you're a star or receiving the Nobel Prize. We stayed here only because a friend was receiving the prize and we wanted to help him celebrate. Everything is top notch, but prices were astronomical. Breakfast at the Veranda was exceptional and the spa is outstanding. Everything is great except the price. Snacks and two beers at the bar cost us over $100 US, so we usually chose to dine away from the hotel.

We stayed in a premier room for three nights and this is as good as it gets in Scandinavia. Large, beautiful room, great service, lovely breakfast and a superb Spa.
If you like classic luxery this a the place to stay.
You are greeted with a smile from you come till you leave.

My uncle won the 2012 Nobel Prize in Economic Science and this hotel was (and has been since the start of the prizes) the official hotel for the Laureates and their guests. Otherwise I probably would not have chosen the Grand Hotel based on the price. But this was a unique event and it was nice for my extended family to celebrate my uncle's achievement in 5-star luxury. This was my first visit to Stockholm so I don't have any basis for comparison, but everything from my room to the restaurant to the spa and to staff deserves a five-star rating.

So if your visit to Stockholm is for a special occasion, spend the money and enjoy the luxury. You won't be disappointed!

Room Tip: Pick a room on the south side of the hotel so that you have a spectacular view of the waterfront and...

Amazing hotel, welcoming you to the luxury world in the heart of Stockholm. The rooms were old fashioned but nice and cosy. The beds were very comfortable enabling a deep sleep. The service was very attentive. The only comment I have relatest to the breakfast: fresh and high quality products; however not worth the standards of such great hotel.
