The Scandic Grand Central, Stockholm and Meettheblogger

Last weekend the Heart Home team went to the first Meetthebloggerstockholm event.

The schedule was packed with inspirational talks from Will of Bright Bazaar, Thea and Toni Neubauer, the editors of Sister Mag, and of course Heart Home 🙂 And there were workshops from the lovely Jeanette Lunde of FrydDesign about photography styling and others that I sadly didn’t get to go to about SEO and creating inspiration boards. You can see all of the photo’s over on the official website.

One of the highlights of the trip, it has to be said, was the Scandic Grand Central Hotel.

We couldn’t have had a warmer welcome and the fact that it’s open to Stockholm residents as well as hotel guests means that the bar, restaurant and bistro is vibrant and bustling.  In fact there is live music 3 to 5 days a week.

The interior was designed by one of Stockholm’s most prestigious architecture firms, Koncept and we loved the muted colour schemes, the artwork that used lines from well-known songs and the gorgeous bathroom tiles.

And if that wasn’t enough the food was exceptional.

Oh, and one other thing that you might be interested to know.  The Scandic Grand Central has a ‘Bloggers Inn’ which was developed with the help of Frida Ramstedt of Trendenser.se.  The room’s amenities and fixings are carefully tailored to the needs of digital entrepreneurs.

We’ll definitely be going back to make use of that!

    I have not stayed at the hotel this time but enjoyed a lot the facilities during the Meet The Blogger and since Stockholm offers so much more than we could see this time, will be back hopefully still this year and book at this fantastic hotel. And your key note presentation was so helpful, Carole, the three of you did a great job!
