When I visited Stockholm Sweden in June, I was very impressed by the Wonderful Grand Hôtel Stockholm, across from the Royal Palace. The Grand Hôtel stands in the heart of Stockholm’s shopping, business and entertainement district, directly on the Flick River where you can watch all the boating activity.
Antique and modern elements combine beautifully in the elegant guest rooms and suites. The Veranda Restaurant offers a traditional Swedish Cuisine. The fine dining restaurant Mathias Dahlgren was awarded with one Michelin Star. The Cadies Bar and Lounge offers a la carte breakfast, lunch, informal dinner, afternoon tea, weekend brunch and evening cocktails.
The hotel also features a fully equipped health club and spa with a steam room and sauna.
The hotel staff was very friendly and highly professional.
I highly recommend staying at the Grand Hôtel Stockholm whenever you visit Sweden.
More information on the Grand Hôtel Stockholm:
Rich in history and tradition, Grand Hôtel Stockholm dates back nearly 140 years and occupies prime position on the city’s waterfront. A timeless classic, it has played a pivotal role in shaping Stock- holm as the cosmopolitan city that it is today.
The Grand Hôtel offers 278 rooms, of which 34 are suites. The Princess Lilian Suite, measuring a huge 330 sqm and offering panoramic views over Stockholm, is the most spectacular of them all. The Flag Suite and Nobel Suite has astounding views from the 7th floor. All individually designed, each room has its own distinctive character and colourful history, ranging from traditional to contempo- rary in design.
Equipped with one of the most modern hotel kitchens in Europe, food and drink has always played an important role at the hotel. Grand Hôtel has been home to many popular restaurants and bars and has showcased its wide ranging gastronimic skills at a host of extravagant parties. Renowned Swed- ish Chef, Mathias Dahlgren opened his eponymous restaurant, Mathias Dahlgren at Grand Hôtel in May 2007. The Veranda restaurant serves Swedish traditional food in a contemporary fashion and is celebrated not just for its views but also for being the only Swedish restaurant to serve traditional Smörgåsbord all year round.
In a palette of granite, Nordic ash, creams and whites, the spa celebrates the history and landscape
of the Swedish archipelagos. The inspiration is the holy tree of Norse mythology, Yggdrasil, with
its root in Mímisbrunnr, the well of wisdom, and branches that extend into heaven.
