We will be in Stockholm for the first time, celebrating a milestone birthday and could use some advice on the below!
We'd like to get a family room in a quite nice, small hotel (ideally a great value "luxury" boutique hotel) in the part of town that is the most walkable to the stuff we'd most want to see during a first visit. Would this be Gamla Stan? Any hotel recs?
Any not to miss sights/experiences for a quick first trip?
We will be taking the ferry to/from Helsinki and will have two almost-full days in Stockholm (overnight ferry/one night hotel/overnight ferry).
However, we would consider flying one direction if cost-effective and doing 2 nights in a hotel. If so, we think the return would be best on ferry to see the archipelago at sunset?
Any tips for booking cabins on the Silja line? Is a sea view cabin worth it?
Is the buffet worth it?
For a special date night dinner in Stockholm - we are looking for a small, classy, pretty and intimate place full of locals :) dpesnt have to be necessarily walkable from the hotel. any recommendations?
Thank you in advance!!
