Stockholm is a wonderful city for a short break and the hotel is in the best location on the water's edge. We booked a deluxe King Size room and were given a fabulous room on the 4th floor with magnificent views across the harbour towards the old town. The room was large with separate seating area and recently refurbished. There was a connecting door to the next room but this did not let in any noise. The only very slight complaint is that the pillows were very soft and even 4 squashed down to nothing!
The service from all staff in the hotel was outstanding and the concierge very helpful in suggesting places to go and restaurants to eat in.
Breakfast was wonderful serving everything from porridge to fresh fruit. hot food, cold cuts and pastries. The hotel was full of guests attending conferences but this was no problem and no noise at night.
Must see places are the Vasa Museum and a visit to Drottningholm by boat. There are some wonderful traditional and italian restaurants in the old town and a very good small Irish Pub which shows english football and serves real ale. It was called Wirstroms (or something like that). Food is about the same price as London but alcohol is very expensive because of the tax. You can get a bootle of wine for £30 or a single glass for £8.
Stockholm is great for a city break and this hotel is a must if you feel like splashing out.
