Historic bank building turned trendy city-center hangout, with a buzzy restaurant and curated art collection
Built around the turn of the last century, this former Italianate bank turned sophisticated bolthole still retains its original imposing bronze front doors. Step inside, however, and the scene has been completely revamped: the vault has been cleverly repurposed as an exhibit space for modern art, the mahogany-paneled Papillion bar has been decorated to evoke the former director’s office, and the original bank hall has morphed into the main restaurant Bonnie’s (named for Clyde Barrow’s bank-robbing paramour) using au courant chandeliers to illuminate its vintage columns and geometric-patterned floors. Bold art along with flashes of marble and velvet carry through to the upper floors, but the 115 rooms (many with private terraces) are much more contemporary—we’re talking HGTVs and USB ports—and trade the common area’s jewel-tone palette for a soothingly muted one.
In the Area
The Bank enjoys a coveted location between King’s Garden and leafy Berzelii Park. Guests are within a short stroll of Stockholm’s hippest nightclubs and priciest restaurants concentrated around Stureplan, the posh shops of Bibliotekstan, and some of the city’s most important cultural landmarks like the Royal Dramatic Theatre and the Royal Swedish Opera House. Gamla Stan (the medieval Old Town) is just ten minutes away on foot, while even Djurgården (home to the city’s top museums) is a doable half-hour walk. Not up for the stroll? The city’s efficient tram system gets you there much faster.
How to Get There
Very nice boutique hotel with a great staff. We stayed 5 nights and enjoyed the well appointed breakfast buffet every morning. The manager of the restaurant was very attentive, as were the rest of the staff. The hotel was clean and conveniently located. We will definitely stay here again when in Stockholm.
Spent 2 nights at Bank and my stay was excellent. They provided the best service, food, and the interior design was splendid. Truly felt like home in my cozy room with a brilliant view over the rooftops of Stockholm.
Bank Hotel is a strong concept that's been very well executed. The rooms are immensely comfortable (especially the bed), and the dining is top-notch (their breakfast is particularly well done). It's also very close to just about everything you need on a first weekend visit!
Two night business stay. Very comfortable. Room not the largest, but well appointed. Comfortable bed, nice turn-down service. Good quality bathroom with great shower. Nice view over the city skyline on the 7th floor. Decent breakfast in a well finished restaurant. Happy to recommend
We LOVED this hotel! Cozy and charming, with a wonderfully friendly staff. Breakfast was fantastic. The main level bar was intimate yet lively, the food top bar was sleek and sophisticated. My husband left his phone in the lobby and the reception desk contacted us to let us know they had it, and we didn’t need to worry. HIGHLY recommend.
