Editor’s Choice: Best Stockholm Location To Begin A Walking Tour.
The Facts —A traditional seven-story hotel in a convenient and quiet city-center location overlooking the Stockholm waterfront, the Radisson SAS Strand Hotel opened in time for the 1912 Stockholm Olympic Games.
Close to key city attractions including Gamla Stan (Stockholm’s Old Town), as well as Djurgarden and the designer shops in Ostermalm, Radisson SAS Strand Hotel is our choice as a base for those who want to explore Stockholm on foot.
The hotel serves up a hearty breakfast to get you started, and a lounge offers cocktails when you return from your day out in Stockholm.
Cozy Digs —The Strand Hotel has 152 guest rooms, most of which have waterfront views through grand, oversized windows. Room categories include standard, superior and four types of suites.
The Tower is an exceptional two-story suite located in the tower of the hotel with a private terrace and amazing views of Stockholm and the waterfront.
Final Word —If your goal is to explore Stockholm on foot, you couldn’t do better than to pitch camp at Radisson SAS Strand Hotel. Its proximity to Strandvagen, which leads to the attractions in Djurgarden (the national city park), and easy access to both the Old Town and City Center, make this hotel the ideal choice for exploring Stockholm — and relaxing afterward.
Sample rate for July 10 – July 12, 2009, (two nights, two people) US$243 per night for standard guest room with breakfast included.
***** 5 stars
Guests will appreciate the hotel’s location, situated at Nybrokajen 9, directly on the waterfront where sightseeing boats depart regularly for city tours, archipelago tours and dinner cruises.
The hotel is within walking distance of Stockholm’s major sites and attractions. Our favorite guest rooms: the corner suites, and of course, the Tower Suite, with views looking out over all of Stockholm.
