I'm gonna participate in the European Coaches Symposium held in Stockholm the same week of the tournament and they are taking us to see the semi-finals. Also the hotel is quite close to the Royal Club so might have the chance to see other matches (time permitting)

BTW, does any1 know at which hotel do the players stay?
I'll be at Hotel Scandic Ariadne

The Scandic Ariadne was the quallie Hotel last year, as Scandic Hotels were one of the main sponsors in 2005 - but I think they change the Players' Hotel every year so I don't know about this year. It used to be the Grand Hotel, but that's so expensive I'm not sure if they still use it. I've stayed in the Ariadne before - it's quite nice but a bit of a long journey to the city centre and shops and other places of interest. Stockholm is a fantastic place though and it's a wonderful tournament - hope you enjoy yourself.

thanks

I dont think I'll have time to go in shops, touristic places and such
it would be great if the players stayed in the same hotel as me but I doubt they'll put 2 big events in the same place

As I recall, the Ariadne is quite large - with lots of conference rooms and facilities for big events (probably why the Symposium is being held there) - so it could probably accomodate both - though admit it's a few years since I stayed there. You should try and get into Stockholm in the evenings at least though - there are some great restaurants and clubs :)

Exactly!!!! ;)

Well, I'll be in Stockholm for 100% since I've already got my visa and organised all the other stuff.
And as for me, I decided to stay at Scandic Sj÷fartshotellet which is placed in the center but there are only 4 stations to the Stadium by subway :)

Somehow I thought you would :)

And Hangdog - I don't know your Hotel at all - but I'm sure it will be fine - the Scandic chain are usually very clean and efficient.

Have fun both of you.

well, I've stayed both in Sj÷farts and Ariadne. Sj÷fartshotellet is smaller. It situated bot far from touristic places (from Old Stockholm). Clubs and restaurants of S÷dermalm are also nearby ;) and imho it's a bit more cosy than Ariadne

I'm sure you both will have nice time there. Stockholm is a wonderful place! :wavey:

The players will be staying at the Park Hotel, approx. a 15-minute walk from the tournament venue. The hotel where you are staying is closer to the venue but in an opposite direction. Hope you enjoy Stockholm! This is my home tournament. I've watched it every year since 1987.

The bad thing about Sweden is the food.

I have tasted it in IKEA (third time today I wish there was a puke smiley). Fortunately, at tennis tournaments I drink only coffee and eat muesli :angel:... pizza sometimes. Wouldn't you want to come, btw?

Usually nobody cares about who is coming into the good hotels - they have hands full of work anyway. I don't support stalking but I've seen people doing it without any problems. When you're a girl, you never have problems with getting into hotels.

Just a sad memory from Radisson hotel in Szczecin, at 7 a.m. I daily went on a walk because I always do that no matter where I am or what's the year season... and all the taxi drivers and the staff looked at me like this: :retard: :rolleyes: as if a young girl in a jeans jacket can be only a b!tch... I actually was in tournament's organization... :rolleyes:

Good luck everyone who is coming :wavey:

You have no clue, but maybe you confused German food with English food.

Like Jacques Chirac said last year: "The only thing England has ever done for European agriculture is mad cow disease, after Finland, it is the country with the worst food."

Here I think he is wrong, because Finland has at least great bread, so I would put Sweden in the top 2 instead.

I'm sure the tournament has meatballs for lunch. Not that they taste bad, but I got the feeling that they are everywhere in Sweden and they are not the healthiest food, that's for sure.

I have tasted it in IKEA (third time today I wish there was a puke smiley). Fortunately, at tennis tournaments I drink only coffee and eat muesli :angel:... pizza sometimes. Wouldn't you want to come, btw?

Too much coffee isn't healthy. You should change to green tea instead. :)

I can't imagine going to a tournament like Stockholm. I mean I find even the German tournaments are too far away for me. ;) At least I saw the final of Finland F2, what a great match. :o

What else is healthier that a huge cup of coffee with milk and 8 spoons of brown sugar (not this kind of brown sugar you think!!!)? I actually must drink coffee for my own good. and as for tournies, I think I'll have an offer for you but there's still a lot of time to go :tape:

I have no clue? Considering I have spent more than half my life in Scandinavia and eaten some crap there I think I more than qualifed to make comments about the local food.

Tell you the truth I don't have a problem with German food, but if say someone from France, Italy or Belgium for example made some comment like that, then it's understandable, as much as I like sausage, sauerkraut and the like, when has Germany ever been known for its food?

Only difference it's cheaper to eat there overall.
