With a mission to redefine the concept of hotel art, the glossy At Six hotel in Stockholm’s Brunkebergstorg 6 district keeps things hip and cool, making headlines for its design collaborations—most impressively with the award-winning British interior architects Universal Design Studio and Swedish art curator Sune Nordgren. All 343 rooms and suites exude style, without overstatement—it’s all in the intriguing details, from the supremely comfortable beds by Swedish Hilding Anders to the marble desks and oak window bays. You can expect subtle touches of luxury too, like the organic toiletries by c/o Gerd of Swedish Lapland. After a day of sightseeing, sample top-notch cuisine with European and international influences at the flagship restaurant, then relax on the rooftop terrace of the adjacent Tak while soaking up the beautiful views across the city.
In the Area
Stockholm’s Brunkebergstorg 6 district is right in the heart of the action. Days can be spent admiring works by Matisse and Picasso at the Moderna Musee, taking a boat tour to acquaint yourself with the city’s island layout, getting your groove on at the superb ABBA: The Museum, and shopping at the chic boutique and designer shops right on your doorstep.
How to Get There
Hotel at Six provides very cool and modern rooms in a superior location. The best part of the hotel, however was the outstanding service. No request went unanswered, and I could detect the high level of training to everyone working at the hotel. For example, my room was not read as promised at the 3 pm check in time. Without hesitation, the reception desk staff person upgraded me to a suite at no charge --- and apologized that my room was not ready! GREAT service indeed. I travel often to Stockholm, and will return again to this great hotel.
If you enjoy modern design, this hotel is perfect. It is in a great location and has all the amenities you need. Very good restaurant (superb breakfast). The only criticism is the bar which is very quiet with a complicated cocktail list which does not work. Will definitely stay there again
I had a very good first stay at the Hotel At Six. My room was great, but the best part was the location. The hotel is attached to the Gallerian mall and close to the major shopping district in Stockholm (e.g., the NK department store) as well as many businesses. A Starbucks is in the next block for the jetlagged. For those who like walking in a city, Stockholm is relatively compact; the Central Station train station is about a 12-minute walk away from the hotel (there's a train to the airport Arlanda, which is quite efficient).
My only misadventures were stumbling in to the Reception Desk to find my reservation lost/misplaced, 3 days short, etc. But after some scrambling, I was given a room key. Travel Tip: put the room key into the wall at the door once you walk in -- otherwise most of the lights won't work. Second tip is that the bedside lights are only switched off by the light switch on the lamps themselves, not by the various and dizzying array of wall switches. Front desk was understaffed; with another desk person this would be a pure five star rating.
Bed was great, bathroom was great, sleep quality was great, breakfast was great. That's a lot of a trip. I was traveling in December so very nice to see the Christmas tree and reindeer lights out front and all of the street and mall decorations in December. Stockholm is a sleeper as a destination for Christmas in December, but if you want a quiet Christmas with a lot of Christmas feel, put Stockholm on your list. And the week I visited it was warmer than DC or NYC. Yes, it is dark by 3pm or so, but you adapt quickly. Very peaceful.
There is a wine bar attached to the hotel; the service there was excellent. A breakthrough in navigating was to find an elevator and stair case past the wine bar that takes you to the main lobby of the shopping mall. That puts you on the street level for Hamngatan. The front of the hotel is at another "mall level" that is elevated.
For tourists, Gamla Stan is about 11 minutes away. Overall, the hotel's location is excellent and sleep quality great. Hotel seems quite new, so the paint and furnishings are quite fresh, upbeat, etc.
Stayed six nights in August this year. Seriously handsome hotel and room, beautiful materials and finishes. Very comfortable bed and nice room to spend time in.
The gym in the basement looks new with Technogym equipment and has to be one of the best hotel gyms.
Unfortunately, the listening room was closed during the period of my stay. Also, I wanted to get a drink one night just before 11pm and both the downstairs bar and the cocktail bar were closed. Quite disappointing when a hotel can not offer such services.
Opened in March 2017. Laudered as well designed. Umm, well...
It's modern alright but I'd rate it as 'business boring', albeit the more exclusive side of business boring.
Design aside, there are a number of good reasons to choose it.
1) Location. It's beyond central. But do not expect picturesque Stockholm. Wedged in between the business district and the government buildings. You are within striking distance of... everything.
2. Service? A warm welcome is delivered by the models at the front desk – very nice – although I had to point out that I'm eligible for a room upgrade myself. The staff manning the bar on the ground floor should also get an honorable mention for nice attitude. Apart from that, the staff was surprisingly absent.
3. The TAK and Unn restaurants. Now, here's something: Frida Ronge, the Executive Chef has been praised numerous times and I'd say it's well deserved. And in the summertime, the rooftop bar at TAK has become an unexpected hotspot for Stockholm's more well-heeled clientele.
Especially the Unn restaurant is fantastic. An upgraded teppanyaki (don't confuse it with any crazy knife-juggling tourist trap) with only eight seats. It doesn't come cheap, but I'm happy to declare it being hands down one of Stockholm's top culinary experiences.
A no-flaws alternative as a hotel in an absolutely stellar location. Recommended? Oh, yes.
