Hotels are all about location — and the Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel, Stockholm, couldn’t be any more convenient for vacationers or business travelers. In fact, the hotel is right next to the Waterfront Congress Center.
Whether it’s business or pleasure, though, taking you to Stockholm, the Radisson Blu Waterfront is directly across the street from the easiest (and cheapest) airport transportation, the Arlanda Express train at Central Station. Hop the train and 20 minutes later you’re at your destination! The countryside disappears in a blur as the train hits 200+ km per hour.
Your Luxury Stay at the Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel, Stockholm
The Radisson Blu has a lot more than the perfect location — this luxury hotel was one of our favorites on our three week European tour. If you judge a hotel at least in part by its service, as many frequent travelers do, then you’ll likely find as I did that it scores top marks. I was attending a conference during my stay, and it still seemed staff had lots of time to answer questions and give me directions.
And the rooms? Well, as you might expect at a four-star hotel, they’ve got it all from fine linens to fluffy pillows. While some people might “unplug” when they travel, that’s not an option for me, so good Internet access is high on my list of requirements. I found the Radisson Blu’s service fast and easily connected. I did enough walking that I didn’t take advantage of the gym, but I did peek in and it seemed well-equipped.
As you can see from the photo above, the Radisson Blu has lots of full-length windows to take advantage of the views of the city and harbor. While David could stand and look down into nothingness from inside the glass, I sure couldn’t!
Being right across from Central Station means that the Radisson Blu is just a few steps away from just about anything you might need. I like light breakfasts, so it was easy to grab bananas and grapes to keep in the room’s mini-bar, so I didn’t have to go out first thing in the morning. Likewise with satisfying that craving for some fast food and a taste of home, since the Station has both McDonald’s and Burger King. And if you need to exchange some money, the Station has several options.
While we spent a lot of our time out exploring the city, so dined in various places, we did have a few meals at the hotel. The Wagamama Restaurant is just outside the hotel by a different entrance. It served tasty Asian food, although it was a little spicy for David.
Our last night, we just kicked back and relaxed after dropping our rental car a block down the street (very easy to get to) at Budget. Hertz is also just a couple of blocks away, but didn’t have any single-day rentals available when we needed the car. So, that evening, it was relaxing at the RBG Bar & Grill in the Radisson Blu with meat and cheese trays.
Indeed, a stay at the Radisson Blu was the perfect way to wind up our European summer adventures!
