Radisson Blu Strand
The 152-room Strand, which was completed in time for the 1912 Stockholm Olympics, is one of the best hotels in the Radisson Blu chain. It has breathtaking views and a super-convenient location in the centre of the city, an easy walk from Östermalm, Gamla Stan and the shops on Hamngatan.
Inside, you’ll find a relaxed, pleasant lobby and the Strand Restaurant that’s great for dinner or weekend brunch. As with all of Stockholm’s waterfront hotels, it’s worth splurging on a room with a view, but at the Strand you should go a step further and book into one of the Water View suites. To open up their double-height windows on a summer’s day and gaze out over the quayside is a memorable experience. Alternatively, if it’s a very special visit – and if funds allow – why not take the spectacular two-floor Tower Suite which has its own private terrace.
