4.4 Hobo Hotel Stockholm

Hobo Hotel, Stockholm

New York Times

“If you can forgive the name, consider the Hobo, a 201-room hotel that opened in March 2017 on Brunkebergstorg, a central square currently undergoing a complete overhaul. Compact rooms employ clever design features geared toward sociable young travelers who value a lively scene, from the buzzy lobby cafe to the popular rooftop bar and restaurant, Tak.”

Shortlisted in New York Times’ 36 Hours in Stockholm, Sweden.

4.6 Grand Hotel Stockholm

Grand Hôtel, Stockholm

Lonely Planet

“This is where the literati, glitterati and nobility call it a night. A waterfront landmark, with several exclusive restaurants and a see-and-be-seen piano bar, it remains Stockholm’s most sumptuous lodgings.”

4.6 Hotel Rival Stockholm

Hotel Rival, Stockholm

Lonely Planet

“Owned by ABBA’s Benny Andersson and overlooking leafy Mariatorget, this ravishing design hotel is a chic retro gem, complete with vintage 1940s movie theatre and art-deco cocktail bar.”

4.3 Haymarket Hotel Stockholm

Hotel Haymarket by Scandic, Stockholm

New York Times

“Opened in 2016, the Haymarket is Scandic Hotels’ landmark 405-room property in the historic PUB building, a former department store where Greta Garbo once sold hats. The grand interiors reference the 1920s with Art Deco-inspired décor in the lobby, brasserie, cafe and cocktail bar.”

Shortlisted in New York Times’ 36 Hours in Stockholm, Sweden.

4.5 Miss Clara Stockholm

Hotel Miss Clara by Nobis, Stockholm

New York Times

“Miss Clara is a boutique hotel that opened last April in a handsome Art Nouveau building from 1910 that was formerly a private girls’ school. Though the name is a tribute to a one-time headmistress, Clara Stromberg, there’s nothing schoolmarmish about this stylish 92-room property.”

4.3 Langholmen Hotell Stockholm

Långholmen Hotell, Stockholm

Lonely Planet

“Guests at this hotel-hostel, in a former prison on Långholmen island, sleep on bunks in a cell, with either shared or private baths. Hotel-standard rooms are also in cells but spruced up with textured wall coverings and mod fixtures.”
