My two-week long vacation in Sweden wouldn’t have been complete without checking out all the best attractions that this country has to offer and including the best hotels in Stockholm. I’ve been to a couple of the best museums and I’d say that I’m still looking to see and experience more on this memorable travel. I have always been intrigued about the Swedish way of life so in my recent Stockholm travel, I decided to do a little exploring by myself.
I found out that there are about 165 hotels. That was in Stockholm alone and I stayed at this wonderful hotel called Hotel Rival which is ranked the number 3 choice of Stockholm’s best hotels. The rooms are enormous and meticulously designed and with really comfortable beds. The bathrooms are huge and immaculately clean as well. Even though a lot of modern design touches have been done, it is pretty obvious that this hotel has been in existence for quite some time and one of the best indeed.
Another thing that I liked about hotels like this in Stockholm is that internet access was never a problem. There was also this little caf next door that offers light, delectable meals and drinks with awesome service. This made a pretty good jump off point for me. It allowed me to meet some locals and gave me the chance to ask them for any travel recommendations as to which places to check out and explore.
Skokloster Slott Castle was one of the first places they told me to visit. This castle was built in the 17th century and is regarded as one of the most captivating museums in Europe. It is being commended for its exceptional interior design and wide collection of items like paintings, tapestries, weapons, books and furniture. I was also amazed with their automobile museum where I stayed a little longer than the other tourists. Getting something to eat after covering every inch of the place was not a problem at all. They actually have a restaurant in there.
The Viking Town of Birka is one of the places where tourists go to so they can get to see how the Vikings lived before. It is located on an island in Lake Mlaren and known as the major port for 1,200 years. There is a new museum built in the area where they placed treasures that had been excavated.
A little trip away from Stockholm, I also visited Gripsholm Castle since this was conveniently within the Lake Maaleren area. It’s located in the small town of Mariested. Its marvelous castle built in 1540 during the renaissance period. Gripsholm contained remarkable renaissance interiors including a theatre. They also take pride in having the world’s best, oldest and largest portrait collections. Seeing these places in Sweden felt like I was being transported back in time.
The next on my list was the place they called Kingdom of Crystal. This is where the best glass work were made and most of their masterpieces were actually made by hand. I never wanted to leave without buying one of the glass works that was made there and I actually did.
The memories of my Stockholm travel and checking out the best hotels in Stockholm would always be vivid in my mind. There is just so much to see and I’m looking forward to visiting these extraordinary hotels and places in the future.
