We recently traveled through Stockholm Arlanda Airport and found the drop-in gym, swimming pool, and sauna at Clarion Hotel®. What a nice respite from the stresses of traveling!
The hotel feels very contemporary, creative and inspirational. It was designed by Anders Björkén of Björkén Architects with close attention to how furnishings and surfaces contribute to the overall mood of a space.
It has 414 rooms, 44 meeting rooms and 2 restaurants in addition to a gym, sauna, and an outdoor pool that’s heated year-round.
The gym has a variety of equipment like treadmills, weight machines, free weights, exercise balls, ropes, and mats. The gym and sauna are both open Monday through Sunday from 5:00 am to 11:00 pm.
The outdoor pool has a terrace with comfy lounge chairs so you can relax with a book, or lie on your back in the warm water as you watch planes go by. The pool is open Monday to Sunday from 5:30 am to 9:00 pm.
You can drop in to access the gym, sauna, and pool for less than $12 (100 SEK). Changing rooms, towels, water, and fruit are included. Or add a breakfast buffet for 200 SEK (around $22). During their after-work evenings on Fridays, you can access the pool or sauna for free!
One of the best things about staying at this property is that it’s only 150 feet from the terminal entrance, which might allow you to sleep in longer if you have an early flight.
There is also a transit center located on the lower level that can connect you to Union Station or downtown in around 35 minutes. The trains run every 15 minutes during peak times and every 30 minutes during non-peak times.
For anyone flying out of Arlanda Airport in Stockholm, this airport hotel may be one of the perfect places to get some wellness on the fly.
