We stayed here for 5 nights in February/March to celebrate my daughter's 16th birthday! She is a huge ABBA fan, so we came to Stockholm for an ABBA-centered celebration.
I contacted the hotel with a couple of requests, and to my delight, Antony Chu was kind enough to respond with assurances that we'd be taken care of on our visit.
When we arrived (early) we were greeted by Ulf at the front desk who was very charming and welcoming. He confirmed my room requests and made us feel right at home.
We had two adjoining rooms - one for adults and one for the kids😉. We had great views of the front of the hotel and the street (the trams we're not very loud at all!). The rooms couldn't have been any cleaner! Beds were very comfortable and we were very pleased to see a Swedish princess cake and some chocolates had been arranged by Mr. Chu to help celebrate my daughter's birthday. It was a fantastic way to start our stay!
Location of the hotel could not have been better! Around the corner is the ferry to Gamla Stan (and in reality, a quick walk to Sodermalm as well). We took the ferry a few times and it was exceptionally convenient! Directly in front of the hotel is the #7 tram that connects Djurgarden to the central area of Stockholm. It comes every 7 minutes! It was fantastic! Between the ferry and the tram, we fly so connected to the rest of the city, but yet, it was so peaceful at the hotel, due to its location.
We ate breakfast at the hotel daily. The juices/fruit offered changed slightly from day to day, but we could count on eggs, bacon, yogurts, meats, cheeses, cereals and the most amazing croissants and breads! Swedish croissants must be magical, because I ate 2 of them daily and still lost weight during our trip!
We also ate dinner at the hotel one evening and it was both upscale and yet casual enough at the same time where we felt comfortable enough to take our younger child as well. Their mushroom risotto and sunchoke soup were both exceptional.
Between the location of the hotel, the facilities we enjoyed, and above all, the outstanding service we received from Antony and Ulf, we could not imagine a better choice for our family's first visit to Stockholm!
We will definitely be back!
