Time Out says
This hip, minimalist business hotel is in the heart of Norrmalm, only steps away from Central Station, the airport shuttle and the hop-on, hop-off tour bus.
Newly renovated rooms and suites showcase sleek Nordic design with a touch of hygge at the Nordic Light Hotel. Features include floor-to-ceiling windows, rainfall showers with full-sized toiletries and minibars with thoughtful touches like pantyhose, organic toothpaste and the most quintessential of Swedish souvenirs, the dala—a wooden horse painted red.
Check out the hotel’s new 150-seat restaurant and bar opening in May 2018, offering sustainable Nordic cuisine cooked in an open kitchen and a healthy selection of vegetarian dishes. Their complimentary candle-lit organic breakfast, served amongst slouchy sofas and fluorescent patio furniture, rivals those to be had at five-star hotels in the city. A great stop for leisure travellers, too, the hotel is a pleasant stroll from the Royal Palace (one of the largest palaces in Europe), the Nordic Museum and Grona Lunda theme park.
Norrmalm is Stockholm’s busiest neighborhood, home to the main shopping street, Mood Stockholm shopping mall and famous icons such as the Old Haymarket and the Sergels Torg glass obelisk. It is minutes away from Gamla Stan, and the waterfront area of Strömkajen, from where most boat tours depart.
1. Icebar: For a frosty cocktail and a slice of the Arctic with a secret, chamber-like feel.
2. Old Haymarket: For gourmet shopping, flea market finds and local produce such as elk and reindeer salami.
3. Kulturhuset: For a one-stop culture shop filled with art, design, theatre and film exhibitions.
