You can ask for the non-smoking room in any larger hotel throughout the Europe...small family owned ones could be hit and miss, but not the major chains...How are Swedish hotels for non-smoking rooms? My experience with Europe has been that it's very hit or miss (largely miss).
Nice to hear about the changes for bars and restaurants...my wife and I, both non-smokers, were literally suffocating in many bars in Stockholm, when we were there back in 2008. When did the new rules take place?You should not have any issue with this in Sweden. Similarly there is no smoking in restaurants, bars or other indoor public spaces in Sweden.
They took place in 2005 IIRC...I'm surprised there was smoking in any place that served food in Stockholm in '08. Denmark was a little bit behind Sweden and they still allowed smoking until 2007 if memory serves me well.Nice to hear about the changes for bars and restaurants...my wife and I, both non-smokers, were literally suffocating in many bars in Stockholm, when we were there back in 2008.

And I always thought John Denver was singing about mountains..............Ahh, I remember when they had flying section on most airlines.
There is probably some Russian airline out there that still allows it. I don't smoke, but there is still something about allowing the freedom to smoke.
Well, I live in WA State, so in a week pot will be legal for anyone over 21!
I suspect a lot of folks might start doing a "Seattle Delivery" for their next Volvo.
We were in Sweden, Denmark, Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium, and France on our April 2012 OSD trip. we did not notice smoking in hotels or restaurants (with the exception of one hotel -- Calais or outside Paris, I forget which, where the room had a slight smoke linger -- but not enough to prevent sleep). We made our hotel reservations day-by-day as we traveled.I've been in UK, Italy, Spain, Holland, Switzerland in the past few years. Madrid a few years back was hard core smoking and hard to find a place to eat. Zurich had smoking in the office I was working in. UK was hard core smoking (people smoking next to "no smoking" signs and glaring around). Italy was pretty far along in the smoking ban. Barcelona this year was non-smoking in restaurants, but I didn't stay in a hotel.
Anyway, good to hear about Sweden, I won't worry too much about booking non-smoking rooms.
