Directions to wasa galleon

Could someone give me the directions to WASA GALLEON from Raddison Blu Arlandia Hotel? Is there public transport available for this and how long would the journey take.

Is this hotel close to any shopping or sites of interest?

Thanks

The hotel is at the airport's parking lot. Not much to see there, except the Jumbo Hostel (a converted Boeing 747).

You can get to Stockholm Central by Arlanda Express (fast but costly), or bus to Märsta and then the commuter train (cheaper and slower). From Stockholm Central to Vasamuseet you take the tram (Spårväg City). Near Vasamuseet are many other museums: Skansen, Nordiska museet, and Liljevalchs Art Museum.

For upmarket shopping, go to NK at Hamngatan. For more alternative stores, visit Södermalm.

Thanks so if I understand correctly, hotel is not centrally located unless you need to be at the airport. Public transport is quite difficult from this point.

How far is the location? One hour?

Arlanda Express takes 20 minutes to the Central Station. Public transport takes around an hour.

If you want to do the attractions in central Stockholm, and you don't need to catch a flight in the early morning, a hotel in central Stockholm would be more suitable.

No, the hotel you have chosen is well out of town - Arlanda is what 45km north of the city.

So you need to either spend an hour-ish travelling by coach - or use the somewhat more expensive Arlanda Express option which is 15-20mins travel time. Its easy, the flyggbussbarna and the train operate efficiently - but it is either expensive or time consuming.

If you are doing just the one day its workable, as you would have to come into Stockholm and leave by one of those methods to stay in the city assuming you are prepared to spend either the time or the cash. If you are staying more than one day you will lose way too much time or money transitting into town each day.
