Let's start with the hotel staff, very polite, professional and friendly. The hotel was clean, up to date with today's standards and very welcoming. The room was great, layout, facilities, comfort it was all you needed and more!
Loved the location with easy access to Stockholm center with the waterbus (but only in the months when runs) as well as trips to the archipelago. Hotel lounge is an advertisement for Gant Home Furnishings but pleasure to sit and relax in. Location very dependent on the restaurant J at the marina so not many options for dining when the restaurant was closed.
We recently stayed at Biz Apartment Gardet on a working grandparent vacation. Other family members were booked for this location so that dictated our choice. It was an excellent one for us, conveniently located for job and touring. The hotel is comprised of apartments varying from studios (ours consisting of large bathroom with walk in shower, queen size bed, reading chair, dining table for two with chairs and a kitchen area with dorm size fridge, two burner solid surface stove top, ss sink and plenty of cabinet storage) to two bedroom apartments with queen beds, full kitchens (oven, dishwasher, full fridge, etc.), dining table for four, and living room area with sleep sofa and reading chair. All furniture and décor was impeccable Swedish design. Located near two major easy to use bus lines and opposite a large recreation area this largely residential area only needed more restaurants to make it perfect though grocery store was only a short walk away.
We have just returned from a long weekend at Royal Viking. I can say after a mixed bag of reviews we were not expecting too much! However, our business class room was fantastic, the pillows and bed were so comfy and you just sank into them!! So comfy.. The bathroom was stunning and spotless, loved the quartz stone and chrome! The breakfast had everything you would normally expect from a 4 star, great variety, fresh fruit was amazing! The only criticism would be should have plates at each section as if you were at the toaster area, you had to find a side plate at another section, hence think more people wandering around a bit when at busy times could be avoided. We used the fisk bar each evening for drinks and was always busy with a good atmosphere or in the day to sit and have coffee. Lastly the location of this hotel you cannot beat, the station is right outside the door and perfect for catching the train or subway. Although this is quite a large hotel, it still had a great vibe and was not impersonal, all the staff were friendly and very efficient. Had a look at pool and spa area, looked ok and cosy, very big gym area did not get chance to use, but will use if we ever get to come back to Sweden again as this will definately be the hotel to stay!!
