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 is centrally located, so everything you want to visit is in walking distance and right by the old town. Rooms are stylish modern, but for my taste in too dark color. We got the junior suit and we found no big difference to a normal room our kids got. Room sizes are small and have bit of a strange floor plan. Breakfast buffet is great, but service too slow and it took them ages to bring the coffees. Also cold chocolate milk seems to be a strange order, as it took them more than 15min to prepare it. In general the friendliness of the staff is moderate, especially the main waiter at breakfast. An important thing the hotel needs to rethink are the body cleaning products. Not really 5 star level. The same applies to the tv channels and the everyday repeating music in the restaurant and lobby area, and the very late in the afternoon room cleaning service.
My conclusion: An unrefined 5 star hotel.
Cool, trendy hotel at the heart of Stockholm. Friendly and accommodating staff. Was first put in a room we disliked, due to it being connected to the next room with some loud kids. We were immediately moved to another room upon request, which we really enjoyed. The hotel has all amenities we enjoy during out couples' holidays. Very cool bar, excellent late night drinks. Excellent gym. Excellent breakfast. All in all, top notch. Would visit again. PS. we drove to Stockholm, you can park at the trendy/new mall in the same building for about SEK 350 per 24 hours (more convenient and cheaper than the SEK 550 valet service offered by the hotel).
First - I have a strong dislike for standard business hotels where you feel that you are staying, well, in a hotel. It is like eating the same standard meal every day and the stay is more of a sentence than a joy. At Six is very much enjoyable and makes being a road warrior a bit more fun. I am not pretentious and I love simple places - but not a jail cell.
Best things about At Six
- Deco/Art and overall design is very cool
- Great bed
About the restaurant- usually I go off the property to get out. But this restaurant is so good that I don't want to miss it. Menu changes all the time and the food is divine. Reserve a table, even for lunch, as the place is packed.
Only tip I would give, if you need to do work in your room, make sure you ask for a room that has a desk. Some rooms have connecting doors and therefore have no proper working desk.
Good friend and I try to drop into Stockholm a couple times a year. 💛💜 this place. We’ve stayed at At Six several times and I am always struck by how pleasant a stay I have.
The property itself is in good condition and well maintained. Rooms compact but well appointed (and quiet). Restaurant/room service food are above average and bar a good scene as well.
Apart from the wild reasonable rates (value), for me what sets this place apart is the personnel. Professional, effective, and efficient. Really comes off as a well run operation.
Stayed here for a few nights on a business trip. I found the staff to be very friendly and the overall experience pleasant. As others have noted, the room itself was quite dark - even with all the lights on it was hard to see anything. The room was quiet though and the bed quite comfortable.
The gym is a bit of a hike to get to, but once there it is amazing. Brand new equipment and a large floor space.
