It was a spontaneous weekend trip to Stockholm and we did not really planned our stay there, it was more layed-back. We stayed in the Old Town Gamla Stan which is very central and you can go pretty much everywhere by foot. The Hotel we stayed in was the First Hotel Reisen. The room was tiny with a rather old bathroom, but in general the Hotel was ok. The breakfast was also very good and the SPA area were we had a couple massage was also good standart. I think a few parts of the Hotel have been renovated and I'm sure sooner or later they will upgrate the rooms as well.
We had a few walks through the pretty streets of the old town, enjoyed our Kanelbullar - which is a swedish cinnamon roll together with a hot choclate in a nice café at the Kungsträdgarden, the Royal Gardens. We also made a "short" shopping trip into NK, one of the bigger comercial centers in town.
We found a really nice Restaurant Fem Sma Hus, right around the corner from our Hotel. A typical Swedish Cellar Restaurant with a great selection of fish dishes.
It was very cold outside, as it was January but I'm sure in Summer it most be so nice. Having picknick in the park or go for a day trip out of the city and exploring the countryside on the beautiful Fjords and Lakes.
Here a few impressions of the city.

To discover more of the sights, plan your trip during spring or summer. The sightseeing attractions in winter are very limited. And the city has so much more to offer during the warmer seasons.
