Designed as a naval barracks in the 1700s, this historic complex on an idyllic island in the middle of Stockholm is now a chic, 81-room hotel with interiors by Claesson Koivisto Rune, and exteriors of lush lawns on the banks of the sea. It’s an unexpected — but utterly delightful — combination of rural (swimming and strolling the lawns), urban (a short walk to the city center), and artsy (given the hotel’s refined aesthetic and three major museums as neighbors). Islanders, urbanites and artists come together at the in-house restaurant for afternoon tea or “Social Dining,” when locals and guests bond over Swedish beers.
In the Area
Grab a bike or some sneakers and you’re in the Stockholm’s Old Town in minutes, but right on-island you’ll find the Museum of Modern Art with its Picassos, Dalis, and Matisses, the Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities, and the Swedish Museum of Architecture. For those who are more active than artsy, hotel staff can direct you to running paths and tennis courts. As for swimming, just walk to the edge of the property and dive in!
How to Get There
Lovely hotel with friendly and helpful staff.
Our room was warm and spacious with a nice big bathroom.
Breakfast was included, served in the open-plan restaurant lounge area. Plenty of quality food to eat, buffet style.
The reception and restaurant staff were all happy, with this nice Swedish way. This produced a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.
All the staff spoke excellent English.
The hotel is a short walk across the bridge into downtown Stockholm. Stockholm old town can be seen across the water from the hotel. Only a 10-15min walk away.
When again in Stockholm, I'll be staying here.
My 4th stay at this hotel and it did not disappoint. The beautiful old building and homely charm of the reception and restaurant is welcoming, particularly when it is super cold outside.
The staff are friendly and very knowledgeable of the city and it seems nothing is too much trouble.
The inclusive breakfast really sets you up for the day with quite a range although fresh scrambled eggs and salmon in Swedish bread I could eat many times over.
I ate in the restaurant in the evening too with a colleague and the traditional meatballs were exceptional and I can also highly recommend the potato dumplings stuffed with mushrooms. For Stockholm the prices were not too expensive either.
The rooms are spacious, clean and the bed very comfortable. Coupled with the location which is virtually traffic free and the being on a small island this place is an absolute gem of a hotel and I could not recommend it highly enough - perfect 10/10.
Returning to this hotel year after year is a lovely experience. Nothing seriously changes: it's still a simple, comforting place, a modern conversion of an old barracks, on a little island linked to the city by a bridge.There are beautiful views of water and autumn leaves from many of the bedrooms, a relaxed dining room lit by candles, and a superlative breakfast. The staff are friendly and helpful, and it's an easy walk or ferry ride to all kinds of interesting and beautiful sights.
