Booked a large room for 2 nights inc breakfast for 2. Location was good about 10 min walk from metro. Check in very easy, room was spotless, shower room the same. The room was perfectly adequate for 2 people for a short stay. At first glance the room is small but you only sleep in it, not spending all day lounging, sleep, up, wash, dress, go. Room had a hair dryer and shower gel and hand wash gel. No safe in room, so make sure you are prepared to carry valuables with you. Breakfast was basic, no hot food, you could make toast but otherwise typical Scandinavian breakfast cheese, ham rolls, cereal. Travel in Stockholm - you can buy the Arlanda express train ticket online, they load the ticket onto your card, all you do is show the card, very easy. Ticket not cheap about £25 return but fast 20 mins non stop and I would recommend it. When buying metro tickets get them in strips it's cheaper, a strip of 16 coupons is 200 kroner about £20 and you need 2 coupons for 1 ride to whatever station in zone A. You buy them at the small newsagent in the metro area. We went to Gamla Stan for a visit, well worth a walk around as it is the old part of Stockholm. Hot chocolate about 40 kroner and cake 45 kroner. We found walking around very easy and safe, even at night. As we went out of season less people around, we find that this is the best way to do city trips, less crowds. Stockholm in the snow is well worth a visit, even the river was frozen. As we went over for a concert we had no time to see much but would definitely go back.
