Masha Kushnir

A hotel described in Strindberg's novel; a hotel which gave birth to the term 'Stockholm Syndrome'; and a hotel with Nobel laureates as guests.


This recently opened hotel is housed in two 19th century historical buildings. One of them is the place where the psychological phenomenon Stockholm syndrome was coined in 1973 during the bank robbery. Nobis is a few steps from Old Town and NK shopping center. Rooms are really cozy and comfortable. Each of them features homelike atmosphere: dim lights, heated floors, cute interior details, potted plants, and other synonyms for comfort. You can dine at Caina, a classic Italian restaurant, or at French bistro. Gold Bar serves amazing cocktails. You can relax and find some silence and tranquility in the hotel’s covered yard.


Berns welcomed Robbie Williams, Bill Gates and the Dalai Lama, and held concerts of Marlene Dietrich, Aretha Franklin and The Supremes. Strindberg named his novel ‘The Red Room’ after one of the halls of the hotel. Despite its rich history, Berns looks more like a fashionable London hotel, rather than the one built in the middle of the 19th century. Terence Conran’s design is clearly visible: colored wallpapers and carpets, wooden elements, chairs from the 70's, British flag on the walls, and passion for expensive facilities (Bang & Olufsen).
Come to Berns Asiatiska to feel the spirit of times. This Chinese restaurant was open back in the 40’s. It’s no wonder that it won ‘the restaurant of the year’ award in 2012 with its 20-meter-high ceilings, formidable cut-glass chandeliers and red velvet chairs.


Concrete walls covered with works of Swedish photographers and illustrators, wood floors, capacious velvet armchairs, warm lighting – Story combines industrialism and features of Parisian salon, class and pure simplicity.
This centrally located hotel is dangerously close to Gucci, J. Lindeberg and other pricy stores. It does not have a tour desk, so you can simply check-in yourself through a computer in the lobby. Story offers free Wi-Fi, which according to the owners is “as natural as free hot/cold water”. Double Room is about 200 USD a day, which is reasonable enough: you get a spacious room (15 sq. m), comfy beds, and a great view of the city and the courtyard.
You can also buy a ‘Story cup’ at the hotel’s gift shop as a keepsake of your trip.

Grand Hôtel

Nobel laureates come to this hotel since 1901. That is the only fact that makes Swedes book rooms for such a price (280 euro for a Double Room). Even the hotel’s interior, architecture and services cannot outshine that one. So, are you ready to spend that kind of money to see Nobel Prize nominees? Then come in December and book a room well in advance. And make sure to hit the Cadier Bar to see the haut monde of Stockholm.

STF Vandrarhem af Chapman & Skeppsholmen

Af Chapman sailing ship was constructed by British people in 1888. At first it was used as a cargo-ship, and then sold to the Swedes. The Swedish Tourist Association turned the ship into a hostel in 1949, which makes it one of the oldest hostels in Stockholm. The hostel became even more popular among tourists and locals after its renovation in 2000. Wonderful view of the museum island, antique state cabins, kitchen and deck – isn’t it the most authentic accommodation ever? Those who are not prepared to live on the water for so long can choose another accommodation of the Swedish Tourist Association – a 19th century building on the shore.

The Zinkensdamm hotel

Looking for a country-house-like accommodation in the center of Stockholm? Try The Zinkensdamm, a 3-star hotel in Södermalm district, a few steps from Tantolunden Park. It’s a great choice for young couples, families with children and backpackers (it is part-hostel). Quiet rooms, countryside views, and a terrace – that’s all you need for a peaceful holiday. In case you’re bored with tranquility, rent a bicycle at the hotel’s front desk (125 SEK per hour) and head off to the bustling Söder.

Ett Hem

Ett Hem belongs to a married couple who turned this 20th century manor house into a small hotel. Its 12 spacious rooms feature high ceilings, quiet hallways, and a cozy loggia. At first it may seem like a house from some fairy-tale. But as soon as you unpack and come down to dinner, you'll feel its homelike, really warm atmosphere. There's always a bottle of sparkling wine in the kitchen, food in the fridge, and books for any taste in the library. The loggia with a couch and a coffee table is a nice place to have breakfast.
