Visited Stockholm this week. Discovered a delightful city and the pleasures of Swedish cuisine (read: lots of pickled herring and fish in general). Most highly recommended restaurant (restaurang in Swedish) is called Vassa Eggen, located in the heart of town. Lovely setting, discrete and rapid service and above all fine dining featuring local plates. Also enjoyed a “local” and sold out dinner at Ulla Winbladh; although truth be told, the food was a notch below “fine” cuisine… That didn’t take away from the lovely setting on one of the many islands and an attractive decor.
The Berns Hotel is well situated with art deco surroundings and nice details in the rooms. No sports facility on site, but you get free access to the Grand Hotel’s facilities.
I must add that the Berns Hotel did something wonderful in the concept of “after service.” I forgot my ID card in the room and I hadn’t even realized it before the card reappeared at our doorstep in an envelope with a handwritten note.
Berns Hotel is indeed very sleek and cool! Very few rooms though. I was in Stockholm this summer (from Austria) and it was lovely! I had around 3 days, but it was too little time. A friend recommended this list for stuff to see… got around to most of them! Will try to get out on the archipelago next time for sure.
Thanks for dropping by Thomas — and refreshing my memory of the visit. Good to have a new list for the next time I’m there.
