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.
I visited here with my brother after we walked across the bridge and over to the Slussen area. The old lift towers over the other buildings and we found our way up the numerous flights of steps. It's fairly grimy around the area and as many other reviews already mention there is a lot of construction.
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 have been there upon the nice comments we have seen on TripAdvisor and let me tell you we really don't regret our choice.
Service is very friendly and efficient and the food was also very good.
A place I recommend and where I will come back.
Arrived late, the man on reception was friendly and helpful. Room a nice size, on the 8th floor. Very warm though and opening window meant a lot of noise came in from outside. Bed was comfy.
I had one main issue and that was awful smell of drains coming from the shower, I mentioned it to maintenance but it can’t...
"Well positioned and equit hotel in nice part of Stockholm"
reviewed 3 weeks ago by annaswiftjohannison
A well appointed and positioned hotel Close to central Stockholm. Clean and quiet. Friednly staff. Very good breakfast. Close to the underground station and well positioned for Photografic museum and trendy bars in Söder.
We stayed at the hotel for 5 nights. The hotel is conveniently located close to Slussen metro station as well as walking distance (7-10 min for crossing the bridge) to Gamla Stan. Situated in the ancient building (dates back to 1647), the hotel has a history and a character of its own, we like such places. Although there is no...
