Average time to visit
Stockholm is a year round destination but is at its best in spring, summer and December. From May to September temperatures are warm, early twenties but in the height of summer can reach up to 30 degrees and the sun doesn't set until around 10:30pm, rising at around 3:00am so you can really pack a lot in! During the winter temperatures do get cold but it is a great place to go for a pre-Christmas getaway.

The Grand Hotel is something of an institution in Stockholm and with its impeccable service, beautiful décor, incredible food and world class spa it's easy to understand why. Since opening in 1874 it has been the go-to hotel for everyone who's anyone!
The Grand Hotel's idyllic waterfront location, next to the National Museum, offers stunning panoramic views of the city and most notably the Royal Palace and the old-town island, Gamla Stan.

The Grand has a fantastic variety of dining options to choose from. The Veranda restaurant offers Swedish and International fare and is the only Swedish restaurant to serve a traditional Smörgåsbord year round. The huge glass windows allow for uninterrupted views across the water that tempt you with the city's sights while you enjoy the delicious buffet breakfast.
The Cadier Bar is an elegant and sophisticated cocktail bar which serves à la carte breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, weekend brunch and arguably some of the world's best cocktails.
The highlight of the dining options is the hotel's Restaurant Mathias Dahlgren which is split into the Dining Room - a modern gastronomic restaurant which has 2 Michelin stars, and the Food Bar, a modern bistro awarded with 1 Michelin star and both focus on fresh and seasonal produce.
The Raison d'Etre Spa and Gym is spread over two floors and is beautifully designed and fabulous - particularly for a city spa. There are numerous treatment rooms, a swimming pool and several saunas and steam rooms and refreshingly icy plunge pools!

During the height of the summer you might like to go and spend a few hours at one of the city's beaches and you can even swim, right in the city center as the water is so clean!

Definitely one of the best in Stockholm and from the moment you walk in you really see why. The uber glamourous entrance and super sophisticated restaurant are not to be missed. Make sure you get a Harbour View Room (with balcony if you can). These are the best views in Stockholm. The rooms and stunning, the suites even more impressive and definitely good for both families and couples. A real winner!

The recently renovated rooms are elegant and sophisticated and the hotel breakfast is definitely worth getting up for! Great hotel for families and couples alike.
