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
This is it. If you’re looking for a hotel that has that extra - hard to put your finger on feel good atmosphere - the Sparrow is the place.
Nice staff, nice beds, great breakfast and hard to beat location. I’ll be back soon.
If you want a newly renovated boutique hotel with unbeatable location this is it. Perfect walking distance to everything and If I was a regular business traveller to Stockholm I would without any hesitation make this my base. Highly recommended.
Situated in central Stockholm, this hotel delivers everything I wanted for a comfortable stay. Nice bed, spacious room and good breakfast. I can’t think of much I would change, I’d say here again if I have business nearby.
This is one of the prettiest hotels I have stayed in. The Swedish fine taste and design that we were looking for. The attention of personnel is exceptional and the rooms are exquisite. We were welcomed by the friendliest manager, and were helped out by Alyssa, both super helpful and kind. We want to come back to Stockholm just to stay at the Sparrow.
