Sheraton Hotel Stockholm Review: As I’ve grown to know and love Starwood, I chose the Sheraton as my hotel to stay in during my business trip to Sweden. I stayed at the Sheraton Hotel for two nights in total.
Sheraton Hotel Stockholm is located right next to the central station. Its a quick 5 minute walk from Arlanda Express station. This means that you’ll have great access into the city and everything is pretty much within walking distance in Stockholm from that location. As with any central station hotel, it doesn’t look like the fanciest hotel from the outside but never judge a book by its cover. The inside definitely makes up for it.
As I was on a business trip, I was pretty much only in my room in the evening so apologies in advance for the dark photos. I stayed in room 289 on the 8th floor, a superior room with a beautiful lake view. The room was comfortable and of good size. My favourite part of the room was the beautiful balcony overlooking the lake. Its the perfect way to end a busy day or start off a morning. Personally I think the interior in the room and around the hotel (hallways in particular) is quite standard. However, this is what you’d expect from a chain hotel which is popular amongst business people People are very much in and out.
The room included the usual TV, Coffee and tea maker, Iron and ironing board, Bathrobes and Slippers
Shine Bathroom Amenities and Safe. On the desk you could also find a set of international plugs, so if you forget yours then you’re saved! There’s of course a mini bar in the room but with no prices available. Consume at your own risk! As you can imagine, October isn’t the warmest month in Stockholm and I wasn’t able to get the aircon (or heating) up to a comfortable, warm standard. Having said that, the bed is very comfortable and the duvet was warm. I also loved the bright marble bathroom, so chic.
On the first night I landed ridiculously late and nothing else remained open so I ordered food from the 24 hour room service. The food menu can be found on the flat screen TV. As I had missed Swedish food, I ordered meatball and didn’t have to wait long for the food to arrive at my front door. The meat balls came with gravy, mash, lingonberry jam and cucumbers. It was definitely a decent meal but obviously not the best Swedish meatballs I’ve had in my life. The food was of good standard for hotel food. Sheraton Hotel also has a restaurant and bar called 360 in case you feel like dining at the hotel.
Unfortunately I wasn’t able to access the club lounge as I still haven’t gathered enough points. If you’ve got an SPG Business AmEx you’ll have automatic access to these areas. Rates start from around £164 per night. Sheraton Stockholm is a great hotel for business trips as everything is quick and efficient. Its also a great place to stay to explore Stockholm. The rooms were perfectly functional, the service was good and it does the job! I’d recommend Sheraton Hotel as its one of the better hotels that Stockholm has to offer.
