I was a bit nervous about this hotel, with its Abba Museum downstairs, but my husband and I were VERY pleasantly surprised! It is on one of the islands, Djurgarden, which is a few minutes (literally, like 5) ferry ride from the old town. You get off and there is an amusement park to greet you, but keep walking up the street and when you get to the end, turn left and there is the Melody with its very pleasant, great people-watching, restaurant. When you enter, the receptionist will greet you and make you immediately feel welcome and comfortable. We were early, so they kept our bags for us, sold us the bike passes we requested and told us how the bike share program worked. We took off and rode through the HUGE park just across the street. Later we toured the culture museum just down the street (don't miss it; it is in a castle and gives a great review of Swedish culture...and it's free and you can get an audio guide, also free!). Riding to the old town or just about anywhere else on our exchange bikes was VERY easy and let us tour the tourist spots, but also allowed us to get further away from that. Everyone at the hotel was incredibly nice, the breakfast buffet (included!) was unbelievable with about every option you could think of. Our room was very contemporary and though on a low floor, very quiet...didn't hear any of the traffic or pedestrian traffic. We would return in a heartbeat...and will save up so we can...real soon!
