What do you get when you combine a slice of history with modern comforts
and conveniences, topped with a prime location smack in the middle of
Stockholm? That would be Elite Hotel Stockholm Plaza, an
architectural gem in the heart of the Swedish capital, just steps
from the city’s best boutiques, restaurants and nightlife.
in the 1880s, this neoclassical 151-room property stands tall
on the city landscape, overlooking Humlegården Park and the National
Library of Sweden. But it’s not just the stunning façade and the
colorful, contemporary rooms you’ll find inside that have put this hotel on the map. It’s
also known for the Vassa Eggen Steakhouse, an award-winning restaurant
that’s gained as much recognition for its traditional Swedish fare as
its hip Saturday-night bar scene.
Standard rooms, suitable for solo travelers, and Superior rooms, which can accommodate a twosome, boast a rich purple color palette and a
sleek Scandinavian design sensibility, echoed in the clean lines of the
hotel’s award-winning fine-dining restaurant has garnered a notable fan
base among locals and guests alike. Serving breakfast, lunch and
dinner, the popular eatery has built a reputation with its take on
traditional Swedish fare, not to mention buzzing weekend bar scene,
complete with a DJ. Room service is also available.
on the edge of the charming Humlegarden park in the chic Östermalm
borough, this convenient hotel is also just steps away from Stureplan,
home to some of Stockholm’s best restaurants and eateries. Here, you’ll
find the likes of Versace and Gucci rubbing shoulders with local hotspots, like the seafood-forward Sturehof restaurant and Spy Bar.
How to Get There
We were here in August. Very nice place to stay. Even though there are no air cons , still the staffs made the stay comfortable. The highlights were the breakfast though , you will get a whole lot of varieties which suits anyone. Must try once. As it’s in the centre area tends to get bit noisy if you open the window. Overall not bad.
I have stayed at the sister hotel (Elite Arcadia) several times and this place is very similar ... but more centrally located (the T-bana is further to walk to though). The staff are friendly and professional, the wi-fi is decent and breakfast is good. Asked for a room on the top floor which was quiet enough and had a lovely view over the park in front. Would return.
Perfectly located hotel in Stockholm city, the restaurant Vassa Eggen is partly pricy but has good food. The breakfast buffet is great. Our room was small but practical. Bathroom with hairdryer and a tub.
Do yourself a favor and believe all the reviews that mention late night noise. There is a bar / night club next door, and it's not just on Friday and Saturday nights. I stayed over a Wed night this time, and the thumping bass of club music was intolerable, well past 230am. I tried white noise and some old ear plugs I found in my luggage, with no luck. I was on the 5th floor and the front desk staff seemed helpless to do anything about it.
I expect some level of noise for a city center hotel, and don't normally complain. Not to mention the hotel was good otherwise. Great staff, nice breakfast, superb location in a terrific city. But for a business trip, when I was expected to be awake and productive throughout the day, it was unworkable.
Sorry, Elite, I'll be staying elsewhere next time.
Nice clean room but small even though it was a superior room. Breakfast is really good but the manly downside is the noise from the bar on Friday and Saturday which is actually a nightclub. Went on until 2 am at least.
