The 5 hippest design hotels in Stockholm

1) Miss Clara by Nobis

This boutique hotel was named after Clara Strömberg, the head teacher of a girl’s school in this building 100 years ago. Despite its long history, the hotel has a young, stylish vibe and the architect, Gert Wingårdh, delicately blended the original art nouveau details with timeless materials and modern design icons.

2) Story Hotel

Since 2009, Story has been a cool hangout for locals and visitors alike. Raw, industrial materials such as concrete and metal are combined with modern art. The overall look is softened by the warm pink hues of the textiles. Tip: whether you are a guest or just a visitor passing through, do try Ling Long restaurant.

3) Haymarket by Scandic

Scandic opened its first signature hotel in 2016 in the iconic PUB department store. Actress Greta Garbo once worked there selling hats, and Gretas cafe and the glamorous art deco design pay homage to her. This hotel is an Instagrammer’s dream.

4) At Six

Contemporary art, design and architecture – does this sound like an intriguing combination? The luxurious At Six hotel, which opened in 2017, strives to be a desirable destination. The ten floors were elegantly decorated by the London-based Universal Design Studio and are filled with original artwork.

5) Hobo

Over time, Brunkebergstorg transformed from the place to be for the capital’s cafe society to a rundown square. It has received an upgrade, largely thanks to the new At Six and Hobo hotels. The latter has a hip, urban design by the Berlin-based architect Werner Aisslinger and the impeccable service and laidback atmosphere make this a very popular place.
