Vasastan is one of those neighborhoods that almost looks too good to be true. It has the winning combination of a central location, tranquility, and beautiful buildings – housing sophisticated bars and eateries – that makes this neighborhood Stockholm’s most sought-after place to live. If walking through this area makes you feel like walking through a fairy tale or picture book it’s no surprise, as it’s actually the film set of the famous Swedish children story Karlsson-on-the-Roof. No matter what season, Vasastan manages to impress in the sunshine, covered in snow and won’t even lose its charm when soaked in rain.
Well worth a visit! Impressive way to store books - round library with three floors of bookshelfs. Stunning architecture, amazing temple that makes Stockholm great. Go there, sit and have a cup of silence and peace.
This pleasant green area sprawls close to the Odenplan in Stockholm's lovely Vasastaden neighborhood. I stumbled across the park while staying at a nearby hotel and returned a couple of times.to sit on one of the many benches to rest my feet and soak in the atmosphere after busy sightseeing days.
Vasaparken draws many neighborhood kids to well-equipped play areas...
"One of Stockholm's highest located parks with connections to both August Strindberg and Astrid Lindgren!"
reviewed 24 July 2016 by Thomas J
It was in ancient times several large windmills here, but as the city grew and the buildings came up in the late 1800 so transformed this very hill to a small charming park. Here sits himself the famous swedsh author August Strindberg statue and the park occur in some different context in some of Astrid Lindgren's children books. During the...
Nice enough walk to the top, but a lot of it is fenced off with temporary chain link fencing. Decent view over the city below. Quiet so if you want 1/2 an hour away from everyone then it is OK to visit

Last Saturday we had a table at Lilla Ego.
It is not easy to get a table, but worth waiting for.
The food is fantastic and so are the chefs and waiters.
The atmosphere is very calm and nice, they will take care of you all the way.
Lilla Ego has one Michelin Star and you will understand why.
"Who’d have thought there’d be a great Spanish restaurant in Stockholm?"

This restaurant is why Trip Advisor is so valuable. Having spent six weeks in Spain several months ago, we had high expectations for Spanish food and normally would have totally ignored this place. Glad we didn’t.
Food is EXCELLENT. We ended up sharing the charcuterie dish and the mushroom dish. Charcuterie plate was very good. The mushroom dish was out...
My wife and I enjoyed the company of the Smorgastarteriet team whilst in Stockholm.
Just to be clear on the format:
- 2 sittings a night of +\- 16 people
- One starts at 6pm and the other at 8.30pm
- The food is the same for all diners, an excellent culinary tour of seasonal Swedish food, so no value...

What a great find this was!
We didn’t have a reservation, but fortunately it was about 6pm so they were able to seat us. (I would suggest making a reservation, just in case.)
The bruschetta is a must to start and perfect for 2 people. (2 different varieties in 1 portion.) I would go back just for this!
We stayed at the hotel for one night and it was nice. If you don't need a reception 24/7 its a good choice. The teddybear is cute and welcoming. Just what we needed, a little more fruit might have been nice at the start of the day.
We arrived at 10am and had asked for an early room which they had. So everything went very smoothly, wifi worked well free of charge and the breakfast was excellent. All this at about 132€ for a twin room. They even had black (Assam?) loose leaf tea ! We have been here before and will definitely come back.
Located right across a park at a stone's throw from Drottninggatan. Might look a bit dullish on the outside and in the corridors, but the rooms are comfortable, good beds, good bathroom, nice furniture, etc. Breakfast is pretty good, plenty of choice, and can be eaten in a room with lots of windows overlooking Stockholms landscape of roofs.
Room was quite compact but comfortable, with mini bar, iron + board, Central Heating and quite comfortable bed. Bathroom was a bit tight but fine. Could not hear neighbours, or street noise, so well soundproofed.
Breakfast was very good. A large selection of items, hot and cold and plenty of tables too.
Location wise, it takes about 25 minutes walk...
So, when the overall impression is good, it is in the details, especially for a Suite. A designed room which felt somewhat out-dated and worn-out to some extent. Have probably been top-notch a couple of years ago, but needs to be maintained. Even if this don't ruin your stay, the room could need a touch up.
