Traveling to Sweden and being booked at a luxury hotel in Stockholm is one of the nicest things people going on vacation should have. There are around 6 of these luxury hotels in Sweden’s capital but which of them is the best? That is certainly a hard question to answer but let us see what we have to choose from.
First on the list is Sheraton Stockholm hotel which boasts of giving their guests the perfect stay. It is conveniently located just 25 minutes away from the wonderful Djurgarden and is only a short walk if you intend to visit Stureplan or Gamla Stan. This luxury hotel has large rooms that are furnished to perfection in a modern, Swedish approach.
Breakfast is to die for! They offer a wide variety of traditional Swedish options such as hard bread and gravadlax together with the usual western favorites like bacon, sausages and pancakes. Sheraton’s restaurant is bright and breezy and the hotel staff is there to give you commendable service.
The Grand Hotel is another luxury hotel in Stockholm and it is easily the best European hotel you would ever find in Sweden. The Grand has surely achieved something exceptional by combining the benefits of a large hotel with the character of having a boutique experience. The rooms of this Stockholm luxury hotel are huge, high-ceilinged, clean and elegant.
The room service at the Grand is fast, personal and maintains a high standard of quality. I have learned that the hotel staff is encouraged to communicate with the guest as much as possible to make it easy for them to find out what their guests want. Now that is personalized service! This luxury hotel makes it a point that their guests live and eat well that most of them come back for more.
The Hilton Stockholm Slussen is a luxury hotel which is just a stone’s throw away from Stockholm’s major tourist attractions such as the Old Town, Djurgårdens Park’s museums and zoo and the Royal Castle. It is also conveniently close to the Central station which is about 5 minutes away. This luxury hotel is the perfect destination if you are looking to have some relaxation and shop in Sweden’s capital.
They offer their guests wireless internet access in all of their hotel rooms and if you want to have a great view of the city, their Deluxe Room would be perfect for you. The food that they serve at the Panorama Restaurant is absolutely great! In the evenings, you would enjoy having cocktails at Eken or Views Bar or have a fine dining experience at Eken Matsal. It is only a short distance from the Arlanda Express which makes this luxury hotel in Stockholm an easy junction connecting the city center and the Arlanda Airport.
First Hotel Reisen belongs to a Scandinavian chain of hotels which is located in the heart of Stockholm. Just like the Sheraton, this luxury hotel is close the grandiose Royal Palace, and the nostalgic Old Town. They have an a la carte restaurant which was painstakingly remodeled in 2006 that displays a modern yet immortal ambiance.
They offer their guests complimentary breakfast and the Reisen Bar offers both cocktails and alcoholic beverages and they also have famous DJ’s that provide guests with great music. You do not have to go far if you want to have a great party in Stockholm. This is where it is all at!
Most but not all rooms offer magnificent harbour views and others feature private saunas, Jacuzzis and balconies. All their guests have free and unlimited access to wireless internet connection and if relaxation is what you are looking for, Reisen’s sauna and plunge pool is the perfect place to be.
Which is the best luxury hotel in Stockholm? I have my own personal favorite. How about you? Now you be the judge! Enjoy your stay!
