Nice suburb hotel Sep 09, 2010
September in Stockholm is a horrible time to book a hotel; not because of the weather or anything but due to the fact that the city is extremely popular as a conference city. It had been impossible to get a room in the city centre; even the cabins were booked! But I had also sworn that I would never go back to one of these hell holes again.
I therefore ended up with the Best Western Hotel Täby situated in one of Stockholm’s many suburbs; Täby, far from the city centre. Täby is a popular place to live the house or villa life outside of Stockholm. I had a long explanation from the taxi driver the next about the development of this part of suburban Stockholm.
I had planned to take the 9 pm flight to Stockholm but it was cancelled so they had transferred my to the 10.35 pm flight which meant that I was in Stockholm airport taxi queue a little after midnight and with no clue of where the hotel was situated.
I entered a taxi and was in the hands of a taxi driver that took me for a 60 euro taxi drive. I entered the hotel and had to ring the bell in order to wake the night receptionist, who looked rather confused when she entered the reception. She was sweet and friendly though and managed to quickly give me a room so I could get to bed fast.
I went to my room and I was quite pleased with the size even though the bed was so small that it only had one side; it was truly a very small and narrow bed. The colours of the room were quite dull but I had to leave already 6 hours later so I didn’t care much. There was a nice little desk which I didn’t have time to use and a nice chair to sit in. There were windows along the whole end of the room; which the next morning uncovered a huge parking lot and a look at an industrial area.
The bath room was nicely sized and it had all what you needed. I was on my way to bed and the only thing I was not pleased about was what I had to use; the bed. I have to state though that it was a nice suburb hotel situated in an industrial area. I was told later that the hotel was owned by a famous Swedish football player; who I have forgotten the name of.
Next morning I skipped breakfast and just got ready and went down to book a taxi; it was still the girl from the night and I paid and asked her to call a taxi. I waited outside and was enjoying the strong morning sun. I wondered how I actually ended so far away from everything and especially my place of work. The taxi drive to work confirmed the distance, because it yet again cost me a trip of 60 euro, but I had a nice talk with the driver.
