Highs & Lows

  • Personal down comforters mean no one steals the covers!

  • A mini bar loaded with colorful Swedish candies will help cure any jetlag from the trip over.

  • Location is key. Many iconic Swedish stores (NK), restaurants (Östermalms Saluhall) and sights (Gamla Stan) are all within a short walk from the hotel.

  • The building is steeped in history. The term “Stockholm Syndrome” was coined after a 1970’s bank robbery and hostage situation that took place in the hotel’s southern structure.

  • Small rooms make tight quarters for more than a party of two…

  • A design overlay on the sink is more fun than functional. Proceed with caution when brushing your teeth. You will get wet!
