Radisson Blu Strand Hotel Rating: 3.5 Pearls
Norrmalm, Stockholm, Sweden

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Great location, on the water and blocks from tourist attractions
  • Comfy beds
  • Some rooms have harbor views
  • Free Internet
  • 24-hour room service
  • On-site sauna and discounted passes to off-site gym, 5 minutes away

Cons

  • Rooms are worn and dated
  • Standard rooms are small and dark
  • No on-site gym (discounted passes to off-site gym available)

Bottom Line

The Radisson Blu Stand feels like a typical business hotel -- rooms are small, dated, and worn, and the amenities are few. The hotel's location is the real draw, right on the water and just blocks from shopping, tourist attractions, and convention centers. Splurging for a room with a harbor view is well worth it, but visitors may want to consider staying at the hipper, more modern Lydmar Hotel, a 5-minute walk away.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In the heart of Stockholm's city center

Radisson Blu Strand Hotel is located in Norrmalm, the main borough of Stockholm's city center, Innerstaden, across the street from the water.

Norrmalm boasts Sweden's largest shopping area, complete with underground mall. Located next to Ostermalm, where Sweden's "rich and famous" live, Norrmalm is also a large business center. Most importantly for visitors, it is nearby multiple tourist attractions, like the National Museum of Art, and Skansen, a reconstructed historic town and the oldest open-air museum in the world. A boat that shuttles passengers from island to island stops a short walk from the hotel.
