Fantastic Location, Wonderful Staff
We had a wonderful stay at the Lydmar Hotel. Its a boutique hotel with unique hip old world ambience. Our room was on the 4th floor facing the canal behind the hotel. A really beautiful room with high ceilings, elegantly modern decor and great bath facilities. I understand others' comments about the street level impression. When arriving, it is confusing because the first floor is quite small and underwhelming. The front desk is up a flight of stairs. We quickly had a friendly employee bring our luggage up to our room. The hotel is a charming blend of old world elegance with luxe modern accents, art, and photography. The front desk staff could not have been more helpful, informed, and welcoming. They are extremely helpful and accommodating with arranging tickets, directions, early taxi to the airport. As it was summer, we loved the patio bar out front with fun bartenders and beautiful Swedes taking in the gorgeous canal views, listening to excellent playlists.
The dining room is gorgeous. It's a beautiful library room with bookshelves, wine bottles, tables, banquets, sofas, to sit on. The food is superb. Breakfast buffet is perfect with so many fresh, healthy options (and some more decadent, too) The food is displayed beautifully, we had our morning lattes made daily by the staff. I will miss the amazing Swedish bread as well as the best strawberries of the summer (Fraises des bois). Great music throughout the dining room. We had a fantastic time in Stockholm and at the Lydmar Hotel.
