Which Stockholm hotel?

Jump to last reply

We are planning an 8-night stay in Stockholm in October. We are a couple in our late 60s and usually stay in 4 star hotels. We enjoy walking and soaking up the ambiance in the cities we visit and also prefer to be able to walk to restaurants for dinner in the evening rather than taking public transportation or cabs. We are looking at Rica Hotel Gamla Stan and Hotel Stureplan as possible places to stay. The Rica is only a 3 star, but it is in Gamla Stan proper, the "official" pictures of it are lovely, and it gets rave reviews. Hotel Stureplan is supposedly only a 5-minute walk to Gamla Stan. Is that correct? It is a 4 star, and we can get a Superior Deluxe room for approximately the same rate as the" large" room at the Rica. The Stureplan room is larger than the one at the Rica, and, of course, the pictures of it are also lovely.. We would appreciate any advice about the hotels, the area, or even any suggestions for other hotels.

Thanks
