Despite inclement weather we had a great time, our first time in Stockhom. Food was incredible (all on the advice of Jonathan the concierge) Museums, walks, parks, etc wonderful. Swedish culture and personalities are very warm and welcoming unlike some cities (like Vienna) that seemed to diss us as soon as they found out we were Americans! As if we are responsible for world affairs.
We love Sweden and plan to return..and to the Grand Hotel of course
Rich in history and tradition, built in 1874 * Prime location in Stockholm by the waterfront facing the Royal Palace and the …More
We arrived quite late to the hotel. Upon our arrival we were provided a key to our room and first left to obtain our belonging from our car. Once we got back to the door to get in, it seemed no one was at the desk and the door was locked. It was cold and we had to knock like crazy to have someone answer. We asked to use the elevator and the elevator had a cart with some type of liquid on it in the middle of the very small lift. So we had to take the stairs to our 2nd floor room. That was our only hiccup. Our room was wonderful with a great view of the lake. It had a seating area, generous size bathroom and the bedroom was large enough to walk around the bed and use the space adequately. The breakfast was nice and tasty. Offering cereal, eggs, meats, cheeses, breads, jams and drinks. The staff was helpful. The hotel was located in the town of Sigtuna, which was the first town in Sweden. (I had no idea when I booked the hotel, of the town's significance.) The massage was incredibly expensive, $211.00 for an 80 minute Swedish massage. Parking was easy and provided enough spots for everyone. Luckily, I am an LMT and can write it off, but my God that is expensive. The area was safe and quaint. I'd stay at this hotel again.
Walked into the apartment and I was blown away on how beautifully done everything was! The rooms were absolutely massive, so much space and comfort, felt like a home away from home. The kitchen, lounge, bathroom and dining room was lovely, didn't look cheap at all, been done to a high standard. Was greeted by a lovely woman who couldn't have been more welcoming, gave us so much information and made sure we were comfortable with everything, she really was a fantastic help. I also surprised to see how much food the fridge had in it, it had bread, milk, cheese, ham, fruit bowl, etc, what a lovely touch. Couldn't fault anything really, just perfect and easily the best accomodation I've ever stayed in, highly recommend to everyone!
