Hi There!

Welcome to my blog.

I love cities - glam - airlines  -  and photography.  All of the images on this site were taken by me on my travels around the planet.

I can't wait to have you come on some of my adventures!

 

Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel Review - Stockholm (ARN)

Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel Review - Stockholm (ARN)

What a fantastic location!   Basically on top of Central Station in Stockholm – AND -  next to the waterfront. You couldn’t get a better home base to explore the city than the Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel.

The hotel wins extra points for being trendy and cool – it’s a fantastic place to set your head down in Stockholm.

Here’s a review of my most recent stay:

Check-In

Check-in was efficient and speedy. The front desk personal were super friendly and helpful  - making sure I knew how to navigate both the hotel and the city.

I loved the design of the reception area.  It felt a bit like a Daniel Libaskin building with it’s intersecting lines and incongruent shapes.

Off to the right was a hip bar stocked to the rafters with every libation imaginable.  I didn’t have time to sample any – but the place looked totally cool.

The Room

Scandinavian mod all the way:  The furniture, lighting and fabrics all screamed Sweden.  On top of this there was plenty of space – something that is rare in most European hotels.

The love affair with roominess continued into the bathroom – with a huge walk-in, slate shower.

If you have a Viking appetite – the breakfast buffet at the Raddison Blu Waterfront Hotel is sure to put a dent in that! 

I was simply awe struck with the amount and variety of food on offer: eggs, cheeses, fruits, smoked meats, yogurts and of course a mountain of pastries.  If you leave this place hungry – you need to see a doctor!

The star dish:  Swedish pancakes with loganberry compote.

My Verdict

I was only at the Raddison for a couple of nights  - but I could have stayed a month!  I loved it’s cool design, location – and breakfast feast!

I will definitely be back…once I can fit into my size 34 pants again!
