We transferred to the Hotel Rival after disembarking. Hotel Rival is the hotel owned by Benny Andersson, one of the members of Abba, so we thought it would be kind of a hoot. Well, it's actually a very well run hotelsupermod, sleek rooms, with a big stack of Abba CDs just in case you left yours at home. Our breakfast the next morning was epic and delicious; it was included in our room price.
The neighborhood outside the hotel, Sodermalm, is in a great locationGamla Stan, the medieval part of townis an easy walk, and there are tons of restaurants and shops around.
The tour was run totally smoothly. Our group was 17, which was not too big. Nice, cool motorcoach.
