A unique mix of grotesque 1960s concrete urban vision and cosy historical Swedish brick houses, Slussen has become one of Stockholm’s most architecturally edgy and controversial neighborhoods. Plans to rebuild the area have been on the agenda for decades, however, so far no agreement could be reached, which is the reason for the continuing decay of its brutalist substance. Nevertheless, the museums and the main shopping street, Götgatan, attract both locals and tourists with Sweden’s most fashion-forward clothing retailers, hipster coffee shops and restaurants. Once the lights are out, the area turns into a bustling nightlife haven, catering to all preferences, from posh hotel bars to sweaty underground nightclubs. There is no better place to experience the clash between old and new Sweden.
As at many places in Stockholm, there is a quite large construction site here. You hardly can find where the walkway starts, and there is no entrance from the ground through the elevator.
Advice: Do not even think about to get here at all.
This is not an elaborate museum with a lot of interactive displays. Rather it is the actual factory where the silk weaving was done. When we were there, there were no guided tours but we were advised to watch the DVD that was available on the top floor of the museum in an area with a dozen or so chairs....
La Mano (Spanish for the 'hand') is a memorial to the Swedes who died during the Spanish Civil War.
It is located on Katarinavägen in Södermalm. The monument was created by Liss Eriksson and was completed in 1977.
It is hard to notice because of the beautiful views on the other side.
Bellman's house is open once a month and there are guided tours only. The guides talk about Bellman's life and about the 18th century Stockholm, and sing some of Bellman's songs. When we were there this 'introduction' took 70-80 minutes and it was a bit long. Then we visited two small rooms where Bellman lived and the big hall. The...
We were lucky enough to get a table here on a very busy Friday lunchtime. The place was packed and I can understand why. There's a great selection of craft beers as you would expect, but lots of people were also enjoying the fantastic pizzas. They are quite big so one was enough for two to share, and were very...
For the quick readers:
- North Scandi light clean fresh food;
- Professional but laid back service;
- Cosy, soft atmosphere;
- Social but not invasive;
This place is tiny, I guess for groups booking is recommended. You may be lucky and find 1-2 spots over the bar counter. Atmosphere is friendly and sociable. The staff encourage people to socialise...

"Huge choice of great beer"
reviewed 6 days ago by JonDoe04134
Mostly Belgian beers, but not only. Rather in the expensive price range, but everything I tried was excellent. Would appreciate if the waiters had better knowledge as some of them were a bit unexperienced. Also accompanied by live music. That's the place to go to if you want to have quality beer.

"Good food for decent prices"
reviewed 1 week ago by Michael F
Revisited the Blue Door after 2 and half years and liked it again. It wasn't busy when we popped in, got seated and got presented the menu. Went for the fried herring and elk meatballs. The potato mash that came with it was delicious as were the beers we ordered. The portions are generous, so there were no desserts necessary...
"Beautiful setting with very nice food and drinks"
reviewed 1 week ago by squidbell
The view is beautiful, I concede that it is not the best viewpoint, but still pretty excellent especially when accompanied with the food and drinks.
Portion size is good, we thought it was on the larger side, but previous reviews suggest we're the minority. Cocktails were amazing, definitely try some, as was the half crab and steak. The half lobster...
The hotel is in an excellent location where there are a lot of rooms with views. The rooms are great, very clean and accommodating, a little small, but most hotel rooms in Europe are smaller. They take care of their Diamond members with room upgrades and all the regular amenities. The staff tries very hard and is willing to help...
Nearby THE Old Town. (15 min walk)
Everything was allright, except the temperature in the room. (guessing around 28 Dg C)
There's a nice Terrace bar at the topfloor in summertime, ( No food only beverages.)
Let's start with the pluses. The location, on the edge of the fashionable and lively Storen district and just across the bridge from Gamla Stan old town, is pretty much unbeatable. The staff were consistently friendly and helpful. And the breakfast was great.
The minuses? Apart from a small enclosed courtyard, there's no outside space. And the small rooms are...
