This chain hotel sits right on the water at a very central location, at the point the Lake Mälaren meets the Baltic Sea, the perfect metaphor for this review. It’s Swedish hospitality meets internationality. Everything you need from a Hilton with a Swedish touch. Slussen metro station gets your everywhere and anywhere, but our tip is to get a CityBike card and cycle the city.
