How to Get There
We got this hotel as part of a fly and stay package during off peak time to visit Stockholm. It was excellent value and the room service, check in (we arrived at 1am) and bar food were all really good. Nothing was too much trouble and the staff were very helpful but the location right beside the central station was excellent- ask for a room with a river view.
The hotel is located to the central station and is adjacent to the conference centre which is very convenient. Rooms are scandinavian nice and spacious. Hotel restaurant is good for dinner and breakfast is like other Radissons. gym is to small not enough equipment.
We arrived for a weekend. We had to queue for ages to check in, then the process was really slow. The room itself was clean and modern. We went down for breakfast the next morning, it was very busy and resembled and airport dining area. Even though many tables were free, they were not cleared and dirty. It’s a conference hotel so they are used to dealing with massive numbers. No personal touch at all I’m afraid. The door key kept failing too which was annoying when we arrived back in the evening. The night staff were also very rude and loaded with attitude. We will return of course to beautiful Stockholm and will stay back at The Strand. Which is lovely. We just wanted to try somewhere new, wish we hadn’t!
This hotel is near both the older and newer parts of the city, and right next to the Central Station, which makes it very convenient to get around.
The rooms were nice and clean and spacious, good value for what you pay for. The beds and pillows were comfortable, but the comforter can get a little too warm at night. Because we opted for the standard rooms, we didn't get any view worth mentioning even if we were at the waterfront! ;-)
I’ve enjoyed staying in another Radisson Blu hotel before and was as much impressed with this one. This one is also well located right near the waterfront and other central downtown activities. Perhaps most notable is that it is steps from the central train station making for easy access to the airport and destinations beyond.
You can buy location but you can’t buy service and this staff is well trained. While check in and out was a pleasure I also had several other opportunities to interact. Once I needed an umbrella and another time a power adapter. Each time I was eagerly assisted. Even some interaction with housekeeping was very service oriented.
Then there is the amazing breakfast spread with tons of delicious food with both American and European options (not sure about Asian). It is a beautiful dining room with plenty if servers tending your needs including custom orders. Similarly the rooms were well appointed with comfortable beds and bedding. Though my view was of the office workers in the building across the street I’m sure other rooms had better things to look at.
All in all this hotel is a great option especially if you can get a good rate which seems to vary quite a bit.
