Everyone seems to be loving the old and new vibe at the mo and Story Hotel is very much making the most of this ongoing trend. If you're more of an inside person, or if it’s just too cold (it is Sweden after all) while away the small hours at Story Hotel’s bar. Think local beers, expertly made cocktails and excellent DJs. White brick tiling - check, glass wall - check, filament light bulb with woven flex cable - check, more brass - check. All you could ask for in a stylish hotel bathroom. The hotel is a conversion of an old building that has been stripped back to its bare concrete walls. The original doors have been retained and used as headboards in the bedrooms. Nice eh? Story Hotel magazine was a nice touch too. The hotel’s branding in general is pretty kooky. I liked it. In the spring and summer months the courtyard is a nice place to hang out. Either for a bite to eat at lunch or cocktails in the early evening. Fleece blankets are provided in case you catch a chill. The restaurant and bar that flank the hotel on either side are destinations in their own right. The brass hangers and clothes rail in my room were a particularly nice detail. Brass is for sure the metal of the moment. And off to your room you go! Story Hotel’s sign lights up at night to gather locals and travelers alike to this inner-city refuge. I love a good neon! And the sinks were pretty cool too. Each room has been collaged with local artists' prints by the collective Wonderwall. Time to check in? This can be done using one of the self service computers in reception. You’ll be given your room number and your own personal key code and you’re ready to go. No waiting around.
