Krusenberg Herrgård: A classic 4 star hotel at Knivsta

Krusenberg Herrgård is located at Lake Mälaren in Knivsta, approximately half an hour drive by car from Arlanda International Airport. Sigtuna which is the oldest city in Sweden, is located just 18 kilometers away. This classic hotel with several adjacent buildings has history that dates back to the 17th century. These buildings are old well preserved manor countryside buildings. The hotel has undergone extensive renovations lately to make it even more impressive with sophisticated amenities and facilities.

Krusenberg Herrgård is a four star classic business and pleasure hotel with approximately 60 well-furnished rooms. The hotel certainly is quiet and peaceful, a great location to relax and to chill out. The view of Lake Mälaren from the hotel is excellent indeed. Nature is the theme of the hotel as the hotel is located in the park with more than 100 apple trees. Bikes, boats and canoes are available for hire during the summer months. Golf courses are also located nearby. The hotel has several conference rooms accommodating between 10 and 40 conference guests.

The main restaurant is located in the main building. The food served in the restaurant is certainly excellent. Main menu includes Swedish and European cuisines especially Italian served with great italian wines. The buffet breakfast is also excellent, it has to be said.

The hotel's staff are certainly friendly. The list of impressive amenities and facilities include wifi and high speed internet access, refrigerator, LED television, hair dryer, bathroom with shower, ironing board, slipper and bathrobe, writing desk and excellent reading materials in each room. Some of the rooms even have balconies. Extra curricular activities include tennis, solariums, spa, saunas, billiards, dart and table tennis.

Hotel J: Small room, on a building site, unhelpful staff

I want to write a fair review of this place. I personally was disappointed, however, I feel that I am not their target audience so please weight up my points and decide whether this place is right for you. I would also like to say that I do my research thoroughly before travelling and I was still disappointed.

Bad points:
* They are building a whole new wing of the hotel - this is a massive building site where drilling, banging AND controlled explosions start promptly at 9am every morning. I wouldn't have minded this as much but there is no mention of this on the website, no mention of it when you book, no special deals etc. The whole point of this place is that it's out of the way and relaxing - everything is rather spoilt by the building site!
* I found the staff to be rude and unhelpful from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. No maps could be given to the local area, only their EXCEPTIONALLY expensive restaurant is mentioned (with one veggie option), and only their boat to the city is mentioned (£15 for 2 people, one way), when there is 2 perfectly good bus routes which will save you a fortune. When we left the woman at the desk didn't ask if I had a nice time or any other pleasantries, simply demanded the money I owed and answered the phone leaving us to walk away. No taxi booking was offered, no 'thank you for staying', nothing. I found this just so exceptionally rude. It's such a small thing and I feel there is just an air of extreme arrogance about the staff. I must say that the breakfast staff were much nicer.
* Breakfast is crowded on a busy day, there isn't enough places for people to sit seperately at busy times so you have to share which not everyone likes to do.
* The room was really small. I had booked a seaview deluxe and this room felt cramped. Compared to the enormous room we had at the Clarion in town it was a big step down, for the same money.
* Nacka is COMPLETELY dead in the weekends and evenings. Nothing is open, not even a local shop after 6-7pm, there are no bars, cafes etc open. I understood it was a business area, but lots of people do live round there and there is very little available. It's quite eerie! Therefore if you want to eat anywhere other than there exceptionally expensive restaurant you need to head into town.
* Only one chair on the balcony meaning you cannot sit out together - a little odd!

Good points:
* Very nicely decorated
* Beds were enormous with super soft bedding
* Breakfast was very good
* Drinks and snacks available during the day but you do have to pay for them (25SEK for every hot drink)
* Lovely views

I feel this place is good for:
* people with money to spend - i.e. people who don't mind spending well over £80 on a 2 course meal everynight, are happy to eat at the same place every night, who aren't vegetarians. People who are happy to get a bus or for people who want to spend £15 each way on a boat to town every day.

Personally, I got a good discount through expedia as well as 12% cashback on my stay, so for a 3 night stay I spent to £135 per night compared to £197 for my room type. Even this I would say was expensive. I would never pay the rack rate for this place. If you can get a good rate then I would give this place a go if you are happy to spend the money on the extras like food etc.

Great Views

Clarion Hotel Stockholm: Huge room, great breakfast, very friendly staff

We stayed in a deluxe double for 2 nights.

Would definitely recommend.

Good points:

* HUGE room and lovely bathroom with shower and a bath
* Great modern decor
* Huge bed with 2 duvets - no fighting over the duvet :)
* Great breakfast selection
* Absolutely lovely staff who were very friendly and helpful with any questions
* Right by Skanstull T-Bana metro, only a 5 minute ride from the Central rail station/Gamla Stan etc.
* Sodermalm is a lovely area with loads of reasonably priced restaurants (for stockholm!) - especially good for veggies with Chutney and Hermanns nearby!

Negative Points:
* A little bit out of the action if you like everything on your doorstep
* Breakfast is completely self service so you have to get all drinks etc yourself which can be a bit of a pain as there are no trays and you are up and down like a yo-yo to get coffees, tea, juice etc as well as food (this does seem to be common practise in Stockholm though)
* No plunge pool or hot tub as shown on their website, nor has their literature in the rooms been updated. There is now only a sauna and where the pictures show the pool to be this now just has 2 running machines placed there. This was not explained to us by anyone and a number of people wondered up looking very confused. We were pretty disappointed about this as the view is amazing up there and our tired aching feet wanted to use the hot tub!

Overall we had a great time here so we would definitely recommend it. The staff are fantastic and made all the difference to our stay.

Kinekulle camping – magic setting at the lak

When I mentioned the outstanding equipment on Swedish campgrounds I was specifically referring to the ones at Kinnekulle Camping. The soft facts are that it has one of the most magic settings at Lake Vänern with views to Läckö Castle, a little bay with a little pier to make bathing and swimming for kids a bit more safe. It has the most advanced kitchen I ever saw with dishwashers that clean within seconds (well, a few minutes maybe). Ok, as I said in my general tip about camping in Sweden, I am not at all used to this so it might be the norm and only new to me. There are big modern washhouses with huge showers, almost bathrooms. There is a big dining-TV-playing room which is nicely furnished. Every public room can only be opened with a magnetic card, the one you get upon registring. I found this a bit absurd. Most of us who work in offices have to run around with this “identification thing” around the neck, so do we really need this in our private time? Haha, maybe some would need it because they might feel naked without one.
We were lucky to find spots for the tents directly at the lake with this prime view. The alternative would have been spots near the entrance near the forest. The lake view had some “disadvantage” though, but only during the time we were there. A German family (aka where the most uneducated, ignorant day-and-night-screaming kids grow up) was next to us and the parents did nothing to tell their bastards to shut their whining and shrieking mouths. But the views were amazing, especially during dinner!
Prices were 240 SEK per night and tent, but this was high season. It is lower other times. Have a look at their website, at the gallery. It shows several of the places on that ground I forgot to take photos of.

Directions:
The campground is located at the southeastern shore of Lake Vänern, between Lidköping and Mariestad. Leave E20 highway at Götene, drive via Kinne-Kleva to the north, village of Hällekis. It is signposted here. Pass an ugly factory and follow the road until you reach the campground. It is a dead end road.

Exact location of Kinnekulle Camping on google maps.

Swedish campgrounds: fully equipped

Maybe it is silly to mention this all (because it might be common knowledge) but to me the campgrounds in Sweden where I stayed at were equipped exceptionally. Yes, houses with toilets are normal for most of the official campgrounds but is this also true for fully equipped kitchens? Of course I cannot judge for the majority of the campgrounds and yes, there are differences among the ones I know. But wash houses and toilet houses are huge buildings, often there are many of them scattered on the whole ground. Kitchen houses are the norm and they are all equipped with big ovens, microwaves, refridgerators and some even have most modern dishwashers. I liked the timer at most of the ovens or heating plates (see photo). They make sure that things won’t burn because someone forgot about them and also makes sure that house and surroundings won’t be set on fire.

Very important for the daily morning routine or evening showers are the coins. Bring coins with you or better deposit some in your toiletry kits, because showering costs a fee. It varies but it is usually approx. 5 SEK. I have learned this after several times inside of the sowers without coins…..

Many campgrounds have space for tents although it often seems that these are at the less appealing parts of the ground, at the edges and often without “lake view” or views of the surroundings. Emphasis on most of the campgrounds is given to the caravans. There is everything a caravaner needs, as far as I could see. I cannot judge because I don’t have one or would use one.
Most of the campgrounds have small huts (stuga) to rent or a hostel type building, or both. But these seemed to need reservation, mainly in the summer days. When I was at Tiveden, I wanted to rent one of these cute tiny stugas, but I was out of luck. I had my tent with me, so it wasn’t a problem at all. If you want to stay in one of the hostel beds or stugas, bring your own bedsheets. Usually it can be rented for a fee though.

The website below has the catalogue to view or order (120 pages). It comes free and it is indeed excellent in case you drive across the country.

Prices vary a lot. Usually it is between 150 and 300 SEK per tent. Discounts are given with the camping card.

Bergdala Wärdshus – a dream place!

I was excited when I saw photos of accommodation in the Kingdom of Crystal in a brochure. The workers’ houses have been transformed into B&Bs and youth hostels. And I was even more excited when I saw a picture of the one at Bergdala factory, because Bergdala was very high on my list of glass factories. It looked lovely. Consequently, I didn’t drive around to look for anything but went straight to Bergdala in hope that they had a room for me. It was early August and I didn’t made any reservation anywhere, so my chances were not high. But luckily I must have arrived exactly in time because I could get my bed. The whole atmosphere of this place was so charming that I decided to stay here for three nights, so that I had enough time to explore the glass factories in detail. I didn’t mind at all that Bergdala is located at the western part of the glass region, which meant that I had to drive quite a bit to get to the other factories. This place was worth every minute I stayed there and moreover I am still convinced that they could ask for higher prices than they actually do. I have stayed in less appealing and charming places for more SEK.

Directions:
Drive east from Växjö, road 32. After the village of Hovmantorp, look for the brown sign that says “Bergdala Glasbruk” and turn north (left). Follow the road for approx. 5 km and then turn left (west) at the next sign. It is directly on the right side of the road then. Reception for the wärdshus is in the restaurant building.

Location of Bergdala Wärdshus on Google Maps

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Region: Småland;
nearest airport: Kalmar (international) or Växjo (regional)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

They have rooms in two houses, Vega and Oscar, with different price categories, depending on the room size (single room or double room), if you bring your own bedclothes or not (common practice in Sweden) and if you want to have breakfast or not. I stayed in a double room but on my own paid 350 SEK as bed & breakfast and with bedclothes and towel. If I would have stayed without bedclothes/towel and breakfast it would have been 180 SEK. The room was not big, but enough space for me. I liked the simple interior, it was not overdecorated but had everything I needed. The kitchen is huge, with tables and chairs, refrigerator, microwave, cabinets, stove and enough crookery (sorry, forgot to take photos). We could also sit outside and have our meals on the lawn.
The breakfast they serve is very extensive: bread, rolls, jam, cold cuts, cheese, several different cereals, juice, liver pâté, eggs and of course marinated herring (sill). And of course, most of the plates, cups, glasses and eggcups are of the famous blåkånt design. I swear, corn flakes and milk taste better in these! Martina Nystrand (owner) explained the history of Bergdala and the wärdshus every morning when we had breakfast. She spoke Swedish only, but later, her husband Klas gave me a summary in English.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay there. It was quiet, because Bergdala is located approx. 5 km off the main road (road 32, leading eastward from Växjö). In the evening, I often walked around the property and it was exciting to listen to the sounds inside of the glass factory, a little crack here and there from cooling down ovens and glass. The best though was to walk barefoot over the wet grass in the morning! My goodness, I would have had to pay huge sums for this as “wellness treatment” anywhere else.
And the Nystrands are wonderful hosts and divine cooks! But the latter is topic for the restaurant section.

Kom Hotel: Cheap hotel in heart of Stockholm

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in July 2008. The room was very small, but since it was just me, it was ok. There's a complimentary breakfast, it had all you could ask for: fruit, all sorts of bread, cereal, eggs,... I was looking for a relatively cheap hotel (which can be hard to find in Stockholm), and Kom Hotel fit the bill.

The hotel is conveniently located in the center of Stockholm. It only takes a short walk (or subway ride if you want to) to the sights.

Malaren: A boat hostel

This was a unique experience. I have never really travelled in a ship or a big boat with rooms inside. So this was the first time I was inside one. It is a boat that has been converted into a city youth hostel and is by itself quite a thing to see in Stockholm. Postcard vendors sell postcards displaying the photo of this hostel as one of the attractions to see. It definitely makes sense to stay there and see and experience for yourself. For more details please see my Stockholm Accomodation tips page.

SLEEP INN Family and Sport Bed & Breakfast: Sweden's CHEAPEST Bed and Breakfast - SLEEP INN

Incredible LOW price - 99 SEK (10 Euro per night!)
Perfect localisation - Karlskrona - 1 minute from E22 (4km to Centrum).
Staying in fresh new renovated rooms. Elevator.
Price includes free coffee/tea 24 h, service 24 h, free parking, free TV on the big screen, etc.
I would gladly recommend it to individual travellers, also to couples, families with kids, but as well - to bigger groups (f.i.: sport camps): in the neighbourhood (100m) there is sport coplex Telenor Arena with possibilities for almost all sorts of sport activities (they have even ice for skating all year round!).

Staying in SLEEP INN was great choice cause of price and standard and comfort and very nice service. I recommended this place already to all my friends: it's a perfect idea for all searching for cheap but FRESH and NICE accomodation in Sweden. By the way I checked and they offer really the cheapest acomodation in whole Sweden!
