Romantic Scandinavian hotels

I posted a quick article on the Clarion in Stockholm making it into a top ten hotels list yesterday but have also noticed a couple of Nordic Hotels in the top ten most romantic hotels !

Hotel Kamp, Helsinki - Five Star. A 19th Century hotel 100 metres from Helsinki cathedral. Marble bathrooms are equipped with heated floors, bathrobes and slippers. Two restaurants serving Finnish and international cuisine.

Victory Hotel, Stockholm - Four star in the old town / Gamla Stan of Stockholm. My Stockholm contact informs me the restaurant here has a great reputation too.

If you are from the UK, it's a pretty good time to take a trip to Sweden now. The Swedish crown (SEK) has fallen versus the Euro just as the pound has, so the £ / SEK rate is similar to what it was a year ago. The other "bargain" for Brits at the moment is Iceland. Denmark and Finland are relatively expensive since Finland is in the Eurozone while the Danish crown is pegged to the Euro.
