We were looking for a hotel that was right off the Arlanda Express station at T-Centralen in Stockholm but did not really consider this property at the start. We were considering the Frey Hotel and Adlon Hotel. The Arlanda Express website shows a convenient map of the hotels not to far from the station and is where I saw Nordic LIght as the closest to the station. Upon checking their website they had a great deal during the dates we were visiting.
Once we got off the Arlanda Express train, we were literally steps away from the entrance to the hotel. Nordic Sea was actually the closest, but Nordic Light had the better value. It had a similar vibe as the Square Hotel in Copenhagen, Demark paying tremendous homage to Scandinavian design. Check-in was a breeze and we were given our keys to our room facing Vasaplan, the main street.
The rooms were nicely laid out, and our bathroom had a separate bathtub and shower areas. They do play a theme on lights where you could change the backlighting of the headboard among red, blue, green, and purple. Even the TV had backlighting that changed colors depending on the main background color. The heavily insulated windows, when closed, helped minimize the sounds from outside, so even light sleepers should have no problems on front-facing rooms.
The nicest feature that was included with the room was the huge breakfast spread that was available each morning. While Stockholm is rather expensive this was a nice way to load up on daily fuel to get you through the day with little breaks to enjoy and partake in the Swedish "fika".
The hotel was within walking distance to T-Centralen as well as the main shopping street of Drottininggatan that would also lead you to Gamla Stan. It is also a couple blocks away from the free weekday bus to Ikea.
