I've never been, but that is probably the most European looking city I've ever seen.

So far we've seen the central, western and northwestern boroughs. Next we will check out the southern suburbs - including areas of poverty along with expensive upper class areas.

Stockholm is a great city, especially the center. I've been in Bromma, in the hotel you posted here in this thread.

Scandic Alvik is a great, clean and new hotel with large rooms, and not expensive (for Sweden)! Very near to the metro, 5 minutes to T-Centralen.

Why would you NOT want to glorify the city?

Yes, that hotel's location is certainly great - in a green and beautiful area but still very close to central Stockholm.

Next we'll explore Enskede-Årsta-Ventör, a borough with many faces. It contains some of Sweden's most expensive villa districts as well as idyllic small town apartment blocks and the famous Globen (Stockholm Globe Arena) ice hockey/concert venue!

@1772: IMO when presenting a city one should present both the good and bad aspects, rich areas, middle class and working class. For example, in another thread here we can see pictures from the working class areas of Paris, of course that city isn't all about Louvre and the Eiffel Tower. In the same way, Stockholm is more than Gamla Stan...
