We stayed at the Hilton Nordica for 2 nights mid May.
Flybus seemed to take forever to get there. I think it was 2 hours.
I am Hilton Honors Gold member and had high hopes we could have an early check in. However, our hopes were dashed when we were told people had not checked out yet and they needed to clean the rooms. We stored our luggage at the reception desk and went into town for shopping and lunch. We returned to the hotel around 2:30 pm and the room was ready. We were automatically upgraded to the executive floor right next door to the lounge. We had great views of the mountains and water.
The decor of the rooms is a little gloomy. My mother was allergic to the bedspread and kept sneezing. The Hilton was fine but next time I will probably book one of the newer hotels downtown to be closer to the restaurants. We were successful in taking the shuttle 3 times during our 2 night stay so it does go often enough.
What made the HIlton so worthwhile was the Executive Lounge. Breakfast was almost exactly the same as what is served downstairs in the restaurant (we went to took) and the snacks they put out were fantastic. From sushi to little desserts we were very happy. We had dinner in the Lounge the first night since we were still tired from our flight. Plenty of items to choose from plus beer and wine.
If I was only going to book a regular room without access to lounge I don't think it is worth it. The restaurant charges $26 USD for breakfast. I hope I have that figure right. A lot of people were at the front desk complaining.
The free Interent on my iPad and iPod Touch worked great. They also had two terminals in the front of the hotel that you can use. They were timed so if you were in the middle of something you needed to save it or finish so you did not lose your work. There were no bar stools at the free Internet terminals. Probably to discourage people from spending too much time there.
Overall the Hilton was nice due to the Lounge (the only reason I am giving it 4 stars) but I felt it was lacking in other high end qualities.
