48 hours in the Swedish capital
16 June 2014
The Story Hotel in Stockholm’s city center has attracted an artistic crowd since its opening in 2011. And since a few months the fans of that hotel can now also stay at a new Story Hotel in Sundbyberg. There the owners conjured an old fire station in a hotel, restaurant and bar with the same cool vibe. First, you will probably wonder why you should choose for this Sundbyberg location? It’s twenty minutes by subway from T-Centralen (one line, so that’s easy). It is a neighborhood on the rise and there are a lot of big companies in that area. That’s why the hotel is packed with businessmen during the week, and the weekend attracts guests who do not necessarily want to be in the center and like to explore a new neighborhood (tip: go to Pontus in the Park). And if you come to Stockholm for H&M, then you just have to step out of the hotel. What struck me in this hotel was the service. They really take the time to help you with any questions, print your boarding pass with love, will even bring it to your room and calculate the route to a hotspot in the neighborhood. In the room I found out that everything in the minibar was free (which I also liked at Hotel ICON in Hong Kong) and I really want to say that both the bed and the shower gets an A+ from me. A good base if you want something different than a stay in the well-known neighborhoods.
