  • 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.”

  • 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.”

  • 4.4 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

  • 4.6 Hotel Rival Stockholm

    Hotel Rival, Stockholm

    Fodors

    “Owned by ABBA frontman Benny Andersson, the Rival is cool, but never to the point of being cold. Rooms here are full of delightful ideas—such as the bathroom’s glass wall that lets you watch TV from the tub—and are stylish but still comfortable.”

    Featured as Fodor’s Choice in Stockholm.

  • 4.2 af Chapman Stockholm

    Hostel STF af Chapman & Skeppsholmen, Stockholm

    Lonely Planet

    “The af Chapman is a storied vessel that has done plenty of travelling of its own. It’s anchored in a superb location, swaying gently off Skeppsholmen. Bunks are in dorms below deck. Apart from showers and toilets, all facilities are on dry land in the Skeppsholmen hostel.”

  • 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.
