A belated celebration of our Golden Wedding took us to Stockholm and the Sheraton Hotel in September. This hotel is ideally situated, close to the landmark Town Hall and within easy reach of Gamla Stan (the Old Town area) and most must-visit attractions.
Our room, 822, was accessed by lift (oddly called a 'hiss' in Swedish) and well presented. It did not boast a great view but was quiet and comfortable with an exceptionally large bed, a writing desk with phone & WiFi, a safe for valuables, ample hanging space & coat hangers, a well stocked mini-bar, and plenty of drawers. The en-suite bathroom was accessed through a sliding door and provided a bath plus a powerful shower. All the usual toiletries were replaced as required. The TV was enormous with a variety of stations in several languages.
All the hotel staff are perfect English speakers (probably other languages, too) and are friendly and most helpful at all times. Nothing was ever too much trouble for them during our stay. We needed to print out our return boarding passes on the evening prior to our homeward flight and this was easily done with the assistance of a helpful young lady at the Reception Desk.
We enjoyed the breakfast in the Sheraton restaurant each morning. A very wide selection was on offer for those guests preferring a full cooked breakfast or for those looking for a lighter meal. Tea, coffee and orange juices were brought to our table and we helped ourselves to everything else. Top marks for the breakfasts at The Sheraton.
We also enjoyed our evening meals in the restaurant. After days of busy sightseeing around Stockholm, we were always too tired to venture out later in search of alternative eateries. The menu was good with a variety of starters, main meals of meats or different types of fish, salads and vegetables. The desserts were varied and beautifully presented. The menu changed during our four-day stay. The staff were multi-lingual, attentive at all times, and the service friendly and speedy. Top marks for the dinners at The Sheraton.
We did not use the gym and sauna facilities at the hotel but both were available and were accessed by lift.
There was a major medical conference taking place at The Sheraton during our stay but this did not in any way affect our comfort or the service provided to us.
My husband and I recommend The Sheraton, Stockholm, and will use it again if we make a return visit to this wonderful city.
