In those days when everybody are into storytelling, Såstaholm has a story that every hotel would die to tell! The main building (the mansion) was originally a retirement home for retired Swedish actors - under the name of Höstsol (Autumn Sun). Every inch of this place is theater or old movies. You more or less expect elderly drama queens from the silent movie era to come through the corridors!
Even the bathroom mirrors are of movie star kind, framed by light bulbs.
A bit outside Stockholm (20 minutes by car) you are in a countryside dreamland and a place that has more charm and friendlier service than any 5 star hotel I have stayed in!
Fireplaces and armchairs in the lobby, great bar, nice food (but very short á la carte menu....) and superb breakfast in what feels like a conservatory. And staff that really treat you as a person. Never overdoing it. Just being nice.
This is the kind of place where I would love to retire! Or at least stay for a month while writing that book...
Also - prices are good! Last time I paid about €130 for a single - including breakfast, free wi-fi and parking.More
