“If you are fond of old ladies you will love the Grand. One old lady liked it so much that she recently stayed for two years. Service impeccable, but not stuffy. Three restaurants, one very fine (two Michelin stars). This is where you stay if you win a Nobel prize. But perfect flowers and pillared halls are not quite enough to put the Grand on the pedestal it ought - by virtue of age, price and location - to occupy. Dated décor and furnishings look historic in modern Stockholm.”

"Set on Strömkajen, the Grand Hôtel opened in 1874 and has winning views across the harbour to the Royal Palace and many other Stockholm landmarks – some suites come with binoculars and a handy guide to this engrossing panorama."
