The 7 Best Hotels in Stockholm


The Rival Hotel

Occupying what used to be an Art Deco cinema, The Rival is a small, privatelyowned hotel in fashionable Södermalm, and can lay claim to being the first boutique hotel in Stockholm.

Lovingly transformed into its current state by ex-Abba musician Benny Andersson, it is quiet, cool and friendly. The vibrant decor is reminiscent of the building’s cinematic past, whilst small touches such as an in-house bakery ensure that, in terms of conviviality and service, The Rival really is without rival.





Bergman suite

Why we love it: Composed of two of the hotel’s most deluxe suites joined together, the Bergman suite — named after Swedish film icon Ingrid Bergman — comprises two master bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living area and two balconies. Additional services include a 32-inch LCD television, 24-hour room service, and a well-stocked DVD library.
