5 unusual places to sleep in Stockholm

1) Bank Hotel

This boutique hotel is located on one of Stockholm’s most prestigious backstreets that leads from glittering Nybroviken to Kungsträdgården. As its name indicates, the building is a former bank, as you can tell by the imposing bronze entrance doors, the glamorous bank vault and the 'smash the piggy bank’ dessert on the restaurant’s menu.
