Occupying two elegant 19th-century stone-clad buildings on a bustling shopping street in the heart of Stockholm, Hotel Drottning Kristinacertainly makes for a stylish stay. From the moment you walk in, you’ll be greeted by a grand marble staircase, twinkling chandeliers and an impressive vintage elevator. The pared-back guest rooms, meanwhile, subtly embrace Gustavian style – think soft color palettes, painted furniture and statement stripes.
You’ll find more here than just chic décor, however. There’s an exquisite restaurant that prides itself on making the most of seasonal ingredients, while the cozy lounge library on the fourth floor is an unexpected bonus, with rugs, wing-backed armchairs and well-stocked bookshelves. And when you’re ready to explore the city, all you need to do is step outside. The hotel’s namesake square, Stureplan, is filled with high-end shopping and dining, and Gamla Stan, Stockholm’s charming old town, is just a 20-minute walk away.
Standard Double rooms offer clean, minimalist décor and average 170 square feet, with plush queen-size beds and convenient work desks. Superior Double rooms feature a more Gustavian flavor, with charming décor and 215 square feet of space. The Suites are the most lavish of all, with king-size beds, separate living rooms and plenty of space to stretch out in.
Azzolino is a relaxed and inviting eatery that showcases fresh ingredients and regional cooking styles. The menu features dishes inspired by Swedish and Italian cuisines, and a bar is on hand with delicious cocktails and a tempting wine list. The restaurant serves breakfast and lunch Monday through Friday, and dinner is served Tuesday through Saturday. During the warmer months, enjoy your meal in the tranquil inner courtyard.
The hotel is located mere steps from Stureplan, one of the city’s central squares. Set between the neighborhoods of Östermalm and Norrmalm, this area is home to some of Stockholm’s best shopping, dining and nightlife. It’s also just a 20-minute walk from Gamla Stan, the city’s enchanting old town.
How to Get There
First, a free guided tour is offered several times during the day. The insights thanks to this tour are wonderful, and can emerge only from those who really work there. Second, so much to see, in the palace and the surroundings, all in a walking distance.We have arrived via public transportaion, thanks to the transportation ticket we have made for 7 days- it is considered Stockholm area, and included in the card.
Boutique hotel situated at the heart of the city near the shops and cafes
Walking distance to everything around from the sea to the old town
The rooms are very spacious in comparison to hotels in Europe
Needs to sort out the shower water leak and needs better curtains and blackouts especially in summer months where the day is so long and night is short
Breakfast buffet area could be renovated
Corridors on the floors also need renovation at least new carpets
The furniture in the rooms are not bad as well as bed linen and towels good quality
The staff are nice ... accommodating
I took a lot of time booking and looking into hotels for my husband and i's vacation and this was by far the most disappointing hotel. Rude front desk staff, mediocre breakfast, paint chipping off the windows, broken hair dryer, instant coffee. Their website advertised a luxury car to pick us up from the airport, when I inquired I was told to call a taxi, really? I always make a point to book a unique hotel, something other than a Radisson but its places like this that makes me wish I had.
I stayed at two different hotels in Stockholm, and about 10 different hotels on my trip through Scandinavia, and this was my absolute favorite.
While I love clean, modern hotels what made this one so special was that the common spaces were charming and grand, but the room was clean and modern. The perfect combination for me.
The location is a short walk from the T at Ostermalmstorg, which is perfect for getting anywhere in the city.
The room was a loft so small but it had everything one could need including an electric kettle and a lovely assortment of bath products.
Breakfast was fairly standard with meats, cheeses, fruit, yogurt and breads. There were also hot dishes- meats, eggs, mushrooms and potatoes. They also had smoothies and fresh juices.
The staff here really went out of their way to be helpful and friendly.
What a charming hotel.
You can almost feel the personalities that must of stayed here during its former usage as a foreign embassy. It’s fixtures and fittings are of the highest quality and oozes sophistication.
We had a junior suite on the third floor overlooking the courtyard and it was spotlessly clean and quiet with no disruptions. Very comfortable bed and well equipped with everything you’d ever need.
All the staff we encountered were both professional and extremely polite and helpful. A credit to the hotel.
Breakfast is simply a bonus. As I’m sure you’re aware eating out in Stockholm is an expensive pursuit so to get such a great selection of food is another huge plus point. Be it bacon and eggs to fresh fruit and croissants they’re all on offer along with lots in between.
Highly recommended and a pleasure to spend 3 nights staying here.
