Five luxury downtown hotels in Stockholm for those looking for a unique experience. It is true that most hotels in Stockholm are high-end and offer everything we need during our stay in the capital of Sweden. However, these five are hotels of the highest standing for a special occasion in which we may be interested in staying in an exclusive hotel.
So I bring you several of the best hotels in Stockholm in this category. Let’s go for the first one.
1. Ett Hem
Ett Hem is a luxury hotel in Stockholm located in an old house (hence its name) that was an old residence from 1910 onwards. A process of transforming the house into a Scandinavian design hotel has been carried out – that is, functionality and beauty go in equal parts – without losing the original spirit of the residence of the family that occupied it before.
The luxury hotel Ett Hem has only 12 rooms and you can imagine that the treatment is super personalized. More than a guest you are part of the family. Ett Hem is located in a very quiet area of Stockholm, the north-western area of Östermalm, near the Tekniska Högskolan metro stop and the residences of many foreign embassies.
Not only the rooms are a prominent place within the Ett Hem hotel but also the patio is a magical place that makes this hotel something different. All this means that Ett Hem has achieved in a short time the worldwide recognition of the press and, more importantly, of his guests. For example in 2016, The Wall Street Journal wrote about this hotel in Stockholm that was one of the 50 hotels in the world where one was required to stay.
Ett Hem is a member of the select Small Luxury Hotels hotel club. If you feel like taking a video tour of the hotel before thinking about whether this is the select hotel suitable for you in Stockholm, take a look at the following short.
2. Lydmar Hotel
Another of the icon hotels in terms of great luxury in Stockholm is the Lydmar hotel. This centrally located hotel is located in the Blasieholmen area, just behind the National Museum and therefore near the crowns bridge that gives access to the island of Skeppsholmen and the dock where Strömma boats depart for guided tours through the canals of Stockholm.
Lydmar hotel has 46 uniquely decorated rooms. As a curiosity in the Lydmar there are no single or double rooms. The smallest they have is the Classic of 20 m2 as king size bed and bathroom with bathtub or shower. Then comes the Medium category, of which they have more, with king size bed, bathtub and sofa in the room. These rooms have several adapted for disabled people or people with reduced mobility. The next category of room is the Large which are its suites and as a curiosity one of them is adapted to bring your pet to Stockholm. Finally there is the 70 m2 X-Large Suite with the possibility of adding a room of more than 20 m2.
In addition to all the comforts of the Lydmar hotel, one of the strengths is the selection of views of Stockholm that offer its rooms due to the orientation. Thus some overlook the Royal Palace, others the Mälaren and the pier, others the park and the city. Lydmar guests also have access to The Nordic Spa, which shares facilities with the Grand Hôtel.
3. Grand Hôtel Stockholm
The Grand Hotel is undoubtedly one of the most luxurious hotels in Stockholm. For starters it is the only 5 *, it has an exceptional spa and restaurant and a very good situation (and close to the Lydmar hotel). I talked about it in depth in my list with my 5 best hotels in Stockholm that I wrote not long ago.
4. Diplomat Hotel
5. Bank Hotel
A heritage setting infused with contemporary energy, on Stockholm’s historic waterfront
Grand, yet intimate. Historic, yet contemporary. Bank Hotel is a lesson in complementary contrasts on Stockholm’s sweeping waterfront. Set in an early 20th-century building that was once a bank, this luxury hotel reimagines its stately setting as somewhere to mark moments rather than count coins.
Step through the bronze doors and soak up the vibrant yet relaxed atmosphere with modern Art at every turn. Modern design touches soften the cavernous marble interiors, from jewel-hued furnishings to a high, glass ceiling that floods the Bank Hall restaurant with light. In the rooms and suites, natural colours set a soothing scene, with bespoke artworks adding an individual touch. While elsewhere wait hidden surprises such as a wood-panelled cocktail bar and rooftop terraces.
When it comes to discovering Stockholm’s cultural scene, Bank Hotel is brimming with ideas about what to see, do, eat and drink while in the city. Follow their tips to find just-opened exhibitions and not-to-be-missed events. Or strike out on your own to explore the historic waterfront – perhaps hopping on a boat to take in some of the thousands of islands surrounding the Swedish capital. When you return, there are menus of classic European cuisine and carefully selected wines to savour into the evening.
The property consists of 114 stylish rooms All bathrooms have a bathtub. It is located in the Norrmalm district, 5 minutes from the Arsenalen and Wedholms Fisk promenade. Town Hall is 15 minutes walk from the property. Guests can find central Stockholm just a 10-minute walk from the hotel.
