Located in Gamla Stan, Stockholm’s charming Old Town, the Victory Hotel — named after Lord Nelson’s ship the HMS Victory — is an unusual take on luxury accommodation.
Owned and run by the Bengtsson family, the hotel is decorated with pieces from their extensive private collection of marine antiques, giving the place a unique maritime feel.
TOP SUITE CAPTAIN JOHANSSON’S SUITE
Why we love it: This suite, decorated in an 18th century style, truly gives one the impression of being in old Stockholm. The high ceilings, subtle color scheme, plush rugs and original paintings — some dating as far back as 1642 — create an ambiance of refinement and luxury, perfectly befitting a naval captain or indeed any elite traveler. Features include a canopied king-size bed, a lounge area, under-floor heating, and a Bang & Olufsen sound system.
