My wife and I stayed her for a 3 night, child free City Break. As a city, Stockholm seems to be full of beautiful people to the exclusion of all others. This seems to be the hotel where the most beautiful chose to work.
The hotel is VERY discretely positioned between the Grand Hotel and National Museum directly opposite the Royal Palace - so discrete that out taxi driver had to tell us where the front door was. Entering the hotel is like entering another world. The trendiest person is likely to be a member of staff. We checked in and were quickly taken up to our room - we had chosen a "large room." This meant that we had a very nicely designed sitting area with a view over to the Palace and windows onto the museum and a separate bedroom with a view onto a small park and more water at the back. Small toilet in the vestibule and a fabulous, large bathroom off the bedroom. The bedroom was perhaps on the small side with no space for bedside tables, but the overall space of the room made up for this. Note the very discrete, but very raunchy design on the throw over the bed! Oh - and the room also had a display cabinet filled with trendy, artsy little items that are scattered around the hotel.
We ate in the hotel on our fist night and the atmosphere in the bar/restaurant was great. This is obviously a place where people come to eat and drink even if not staying. The room has been carefully designed so that it feels you are eating in someone's front room - albeit someone with gorgeous looking friends, a great stereo, fabulous CD collection and loads of retro books about the 1980s. We loved it. Breakfast is also taken in this room and was superb.
The hotel is not cheap - nothing in Stockholm is - but you get what you pay for.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- All of our rooms are individually furnished and no rooms are alike. On the 5th floor you can enjoy the feeling of a penthouse with wooden beams in the sloping ceiling. The furnishing is meant to give you that homey feeling, with furniture in different styles. The rooms have different views such as street, park and waterfront. ... more less
