Stayed in: May 2016
After staying at the airport for my last two visits to Stockholm, I figured I’d stay in the city for this visit. The down side of this was that the prices were a lot higher, but the fact I was more than familiar with the city meant I would at least know where I would be going and the areas to stay in. I had initially wanted to stay in the Radisson Blu Royal, but that was sold out for my dates. Second choice was the brand new Scandic opposite the central station – although when I went to book, the prices had shot up and I figured if I was going to be paying a higher rate, I may as well stay at the Radisson Blue Waterside – at least that way I’d get some status perks and some Club Carlson points.
When I arrived, check in was a little slow due to the one and only check in agent being on the phone – but to be honest, as it was 11:30pm, I wouldn’t expect a full compliment of check in staff anyway. It was confirmed I’d been upgraded to a superior room, my status was acknowledged and I was sent on my way within a couple of minutes.
The main room was of average size, with a decent sized bed and what I would call a Scandinavian style – lots of wood. It appeared to have been recently refurbished as everything seemed very clean and new. Towards the far end was a work desk and an arm chair.
The bathroom was a little small, but again, seemed like it had been recently refurbished. It featured a bath/shower combo, single sink and a toilet.
Tea/coffee making facilities were present in the room, along with the standard Radisson amenities in the bathroom.
Also present was a welcome gift of a fruit plate. One thing I do like about these welcome plates is that its different in every Radisson hotel.
A handy hotel for the Central Station in Stockholm, which worked well for me after a late arrival. The room I stayed in at least was clean, modern and had a large comfortable bed – with is just what I needed after a long day. The WiFi worked extremely well and was very fast – better speeds than I have at home actually.
