Sweden's top 5-star hotels

Sweden has long been an exciting and very popular travel destination and for good reason. The country boasts a plethora of attractions and a very welcoming culture but it also has some of the finest five-start luxury hotels in the world.

While all of Sweden has a lot to offer tourists in the way of rest, relaxation, and recreation, the vast majority of the country's five-star luxury hotels can be found in Stockholm.

These first-class hotel accommodations include features like an unsurpassed quality of service, the best amenities, and a standard of excellence that is second-to-none.

Arguably the best of the best in terms of Sweden's luxury hotels is the Grand Hotel Stockholm. It is internationally renowned for its unique interiors as well as its unusually convenient city center location.

The Nobis Hotel Stockholm features a much more subtle and refined brand of luxury. The hotel proprietors have done a masterful job evenly blending style, elegance, comfort, and functionality into all of the rooms and facilities that the hotel has to offer.

The Hotel Rival Stockholm is the consummate example of modern luxury and contemporary styling. It features its own movie theater as well as a bakery and its interior design has been described as "well ahead of the style curve". The rooms are also tech heavy and feature complimentary 32" plasma televisions, Playstation game consoles, and DVD/CD players.

The Elite Plaza in Gothenburg is a luxurious hotel for both leisure as well as business travelers. Besides boasting some of the most elegant interior decor in the country, the Elite Plaza features complimentary currency exchange and lift access as well as a gym and restaurant.

Airport hotels are not traditionally expected or considered to be of the five-star variety. The Clarion Hotel Arlanda Airport, however, is the exception to that unspoken rule. All rooms feature a flat-screen satellite TV, a spacious desk, and modern furnishings. The hotel itself has three separate restaurants and the Sky Bar which sits atop the hotel at over 100 high and offers spectacular panoramic views of planes taking off and arriving.

If you are planning on visiting Sweden and you have the means, consider one of the country's five-star hotels for your lodging accommodations. And even if you think you don't have the means, there are discounts available for some of these hotels online so that you can treat yourself to a night or two of the best hotels that Sweden has to offer.
