Overview

An architectural gem turned modern urban escape, with a buzzy bar and restaurant - includes breakfast

The Lowdown

What do you get when you combine a slice of history with modern comforts
and conveniences, topped with a prime location smack in the middle of
Stockholm? That would be Elite Hotel Stockholm Plaza, an
architectural gem in the heart of the Swedish capital, just steps
from the city’s best boutiques, restaurants and nightlife.
Built
in the 1880s, this neoclassical 151-room property stands tall
on the city landscape, overlooking Humlegården Park and the National
Library of Sweden. But it’s not just the stunning façade and the
colorful, contemporary rooms you’ll find inside that have put this hotel on the map. It’s
also known for the Vassa Eggen Steakhouse, an award-winning restaurant
that’s gained as much recognition for its traditional Swedish fare as
its hip Saturday-night bar scene.

Rooms

Standard rooms, suitable for solo travelers, and Superior rooms, which can accommodate a twosome, boast a rich purple color palette and a
sleek Scandinavian design sensibility, echoed in the clean lines of the
furnishings.

Dining

The
hotel’s award-winning fine-dining restaurant has garnered a notable fan
base among locals and guests alike. Serving breakfast, lunch and
dinner, the popular eatery has built a reputation with its take on
traditional Swedish fare, not to mention buzzing weekend bar scene,
complete with a DJ. Room service is also available.

Location

Situated
on the edge of the charming Humlegarden park in the chic Östermalm
borough, this convenient hotel is also just steps away from Stureplan,
home to some of Stockholm’s best restaurants and eateries. Here, you’ll
find the likes of Versace and Gucci rubbing shoulders with local hotspots, like the seafood-forward Sturehof restaurant and Spy Bar.

Good hotel in great location

This hotel is in a great location, in which you pretty much got Walking distance to all central locations. The rooms are good and Clean. The breakfast was plentiful and of really good quality. Definitly a hotel to recommend

Don't stay here if you have luggage!

Tiniest rooms I have ever seen...even smaller than in Japan!. First they gave me one with a single bed and no floor space to even open a suitcase! Then I was "upgraded" and still not enough room to leave luggage open and walk around the room. Bathroom is the length of the bathtub. Floor space in front of tub between sink and toilet is smaller than the bath mat. Hotel Gym and Spa are both at other hotels! Room service menu consists of 4-5 items total. Staff at front desk are very nice and helpful but we will never stay here again.

Very good boutique hotel

Good points: brilliant location (walking distance to most things you’d like to see); really wonderful breakfast buffet (enough to keep you going for most of the day); room clean and bed very comfortable; front desk service excellent; good value for money.

Drawbacks: the room was very small but that was ok (it had everything we needed) and there is some noise late at night from the club downstairs. Earplugs might be useful for getting off to sleep.

On the whole, recommended as a good value, well located and friendly place to stay, from which to explore this city.
