Getting to SHoF and the hotel from Stockholm airport (Arlanda):

The fastest and best way to reach the city of Stockholm from Arlanda Airport is going with the Arlanda Express train. The train departs every 15 minutes. Travel time to the Central Station, “Stockholm City”, is 20 minutes.

You can also go by airport coaches, “Flygbussarna”. Departures are more or less continuously but at least every 10 minutes. Travel time is 40 minutes to the Central Station.

Taxi is also an alternative. Taxi companies charge different flat rates for rides from the airport. “Taxi Stockholm” (not “Taxi i Stockholm”), “Taxi Transfer”, “Taxi Kurir”, and “Taxi020” are reliable companies. Travel time is approximately 35-40 minutes. Taxi availability at the airport is good so preliminary reservation is not required. Traffic jams to/from the airport are unusual.
