For grown-up Twenties glamour and floor-to-ceiling Art Deco design, Haymarket by Scandic hotel has fast become one of the coolest sleeps in Stockholm since opening in May 2016. Housed in the historic 1916 Paul Urbanus Bergström PUB building (the former department store where Swedish actress Greta Garbo once worked as a millinery assistant), it has made headlines for its top-notch service, plush décor, boutique vibe,and overall nostalgic appeal.
Days here can be spent getting clued up on Sweden’s most famous musical export at ABBA: The Museum, gorging on artworks by Matisse and Picasso at the Moderna Musee, getting to grips with the city’s unique island layout on a boat tour, and braving a dip at the Långholmen Pontoon. Post-sightseeing, head back to this divine hotel to choose from three very different on-site dining experiences in the brasserie, bistro-café and cocktail bar.
All of the 409 rooms and suites assure state-of-the-art comfort and true-to-style period furnishings, from the comfortable queen-size beds and beautiful bathrooms to the modern amenities. For the fitness fanatics among you, there’s a fabulous gym with high-tech exercise machines and a free-to-borrow bike service should you muster up the energy to peddle your way through the second-largest archipelago in the Baltic Sea.
How to Get There
Nice hotel, very good location, clean, welcoming and professional stuff. Cosy restaurant will spoil you with culinary treats from morning till night, and afterwards you can spend a relaxing evening at hotel bar.
Me and a friend went to Scandic Haymarket for a drink after dinner. The hotel is in the building, which housed the department store PUB before. The lobby, restaurant and bar have a 20s/30s retro wibe, with a lot of cool design details. It felt very luxurious and when entering, the atmosphere anticipated, that the visit will be something extra. However, unfotunately the service did not match this feeling. The bartenders at the bar looked like they did not care. When it was my turn to order, the bartender did not great or speak to me, just looked at me longer, than would be nomal. In a situation like this, I would expect a ”hello” or ”welcome”, ”what would you like to have”. For me, this is an example of where the service does not match the other aspects of the experience. Beside this, it is a cool venue to visit.
The hotel is well located, close to everything, you can vist the city by foot. The hotel is very nice and clean. The decoration of the restaurants, bar, rooms is beautiful ! The breakfast was good , for all tasts.
Ok so I know the hotel is new. Front of house is ok but rooms are poor. Clean but that’s expected it’s new. No extras that you’d expect in a 4* such as bath robes or fluffy towels.
Probably this is standard scandic but if you want 4* look somewhere else
The air was really bad in this room. The pillows not comfy at all ended up sleeping on a towel
The service at breakfast was poor, lack of knowledge when I was asking for lactose free products. The location was great
