What a gem!

Just perfect! This is by far my favorite hotel in Stockholm. Excellent food and stylish rooms. Cool atmosphere. Amazing water views and views of the super affluent/recreational area Djurgården. Boat service into town every 20 mins. The boat stopped at Djurgården and Nybrokajen which is really the only two places I care to go to when I’m in Stockholm.
I am originally from Sweden and I’ve lived in Stockholm so I was fine with the fact that it’s slightly outside of town in a residential area.
I should also add that I was traveling with a three year old. Therefore I really liked all the airy space inside the hotel and outside for her to run around. Also loved the new walkway around Kvarnholmen with spectacular views and 2 playgrounds within walking distance.
The crowd was much more relaxed that downtown. I usually stay at Diplomat or Grand hotel, but their bar and restaurants attracts a very posh Stockholm crowd, and I didn’t want to get the evil eye from everyone because of my child so I decided to try Elite this time. It was a great choice for us.
The last boat from town leaves at 8:20 pm, so if you’re planning to do lots of night activities you might be better off in the actual downtown area. Of course you can take take bus/train or a taxi to the hotel late, but it’s not as charming as taking the boat. My daughter really loved that part too!
