First Hotel Amaranten Stockholm Reviews
First Hotel Amaranten Jan 12, 2010
The hotel is situated in a part of Stockholm which is dominated by a housing area but the area is also rich on restaurants and therefore it should be easy to find one that is open and not booked in the close perimeter.
The lounge area of this hotel is huge, open and spacious and just around the corner of the long reception there is a very nice bar. I had booked one of the low key single rooms and that is usually the worst rooms of the hotel (any hotel) and by now I have been in many of them, so I know.
The room was quite small and narrow; I felt like I was walking into a cabin on a ship that sails from Copenhagen to Oslo. The bed was actually a 1½ bed, which was nice and besides that it had very good madras. When I am travelling on these business trips there are few things that matters for me but one of them is the quality of the bed. Otherwise there was what you could expect in a room like this; TV with loads of canals (which is nice); mini bar and a bathroom that would be very intimate if you had to share. They had also free wife which is nice. There were also a small desk which is nice because then you have a possibility to work a little as well.
The room was quiet; there were no noise from the street even though it was situated directly on a heavily trafficked corner but the sound isolation was rather effective. I guess that the traffic would be heavier on a summer day though; when I was there it was freezing cold, -9 degrees Celsius and there were snow everywhere.
The hotel bar was one of the trendy places in the neighbourhood and there was a good crowd there when I cam e back from my walk in the surrounding area. Very close to the hotel I found a good restaurant but there were plenty to choose from; they were almost situated on all corners surrounding the hotel.
The waiters in the bar were young but these guys were dedicated to their occupation and they really gave good service and advices. The bar had a huge collection of pale ale; a beer type that never really attracted me but I have later found out that it is very popular in Stockholm. I tasted some of them and must say that I was in for some positive surprises.
It was a quite nice place all in all. The reception was working very efficient; it is a large hotel and there were loads of people arriving all the time. Judging from the people arriving it was a wanted by young couples or friends visiting Stockholm for a day of two.
If you are a person that doesn’t stay a lot in the hotel I can easily recommend this hotel. The area is nice too and you are now far from areas where you can have a nice walk as well.
