Stockholm legends. Famous hotels glorified by history or celebrities

Stockholm Langholmen Some hotels in Stockholm have become iconic landmarks ever since the opening, so there’s no wonder why they are famous far beyond the borders of the city. The modest Langholmen , which is open on the same named island, is one of such hotels. In the 19th century, the city prison was open in the building of the hotel. Guest rooms that travelers can stay in nowadays were prison cells in the past. Some of them still have elements of the original look.
A large atrium, which looks the same as in 1866, remains one of the main peculiarities of the “prison hotel”. Grey stone walls, high windows with thick rails, torch holders in corridors, and massive wooden doors – every detail of the hotel’s design reminds of the gloomy past of the building. Besides comfortable guest rooms, there is a prison museum in the historic house. The museum is one of the most frequently visited cultural venues in Stockholm. Copyright

Radisson Blu Strand Photo of Radisson Blu Strand Hotel, Stockholm, Stockholm The historic Radisson Blu Strand has been serving guests for more than a century. It was built on purpose to provide accommodation for guests of the Olympic Games. It’s one of the most prestigious hotels in Europe. The legendary hotel is open in a gorgeous 10-storey building. Many travelers choose to book a room at Radisson Blu Strand not only because of the magnificent historic décor but also because of a convenient location on the waterfront. Numerous excursion boats and tourist ships are docked just a few steps away from the hotel’s entrance. The old building looks quite unusual – its tiled roof is painted in turquoise, so many inexperienced travelers mistake the hotel for some religious construction.
