Stockholm 2012 – Day 1 – Arriving, Hotel & Room

So I arrived in Stockholm, and got to my lovely hotel. I got a hotel in Stureplan, which is pretty central to stuff and is the “posh end” of Stockholm. There are many cool areas in Stockholm but I chose this and this hotel because it had good reviews on Trip Advisor, and was ranked 11th higher than big names like the Hilton. These days I like this style of hotel, a boutique hotel, they are small but not tiny, and usually their attention to detail is better, as was this one.

They have a cool American style old lift with a cage, it looks pretty good. The room I booked was a Superior room which was great, 4m high ceilings, nice big bed, good size LCD TV on the wall, complementary WIFI in my room, and the bathroom which I loved. The only bad part was the view; The superior rooms have either a view to the street (a good view) or a view of the back which is pretty much no view, and that is the view I had. I wanted a street view, but I was not in my room much to enjoy a view anyway. I also had a nice little mini bar, and chandelier above my bed.

So the bathroom, the coolest part; I loved the massive shower head and really large shower, the sink with the coolest tap in the world, and large long mirror.

I got into my room at around 19:00 and since I had been up since 03:30 I had a quiet night. I had a little look around the hotel, went to the hotel bar and had a couple of beers. The hotel bar was nice, and faced on to the street, so you could look out at Stureplan and watch the world go by.

Hiss aka Lift. I thought this was cool.

My mini bar…A little space to put a few of my own things in.

My room

My bathroom, I loved it, quite swish 😛

Shower…I spent a long time under this, so nice and hot, the best showers ever 😀

The coolest tap ever? It’s like a really thick chunky chrome pipe, and water can come out really quickly.

Chandelier above the bed. I turned it on once just to see, I never really used it, I just used the lamps 🙂

  1. Anna Kritikou Said,

    Very nice! I love reading about hotels and travels but from a real traveller’s point of view. Not from journalists who get paid to do that. I’m waiting for more reports from your future travels.
