The Nordic Nomad

Stockholm, Sweden

Nobis Hotel

What’s the hotel in a nutshell?

Elegant, timeless and effortlessly chic, Swedish hotelier Alessandro Catenacci and Stockholm design trio Claesson Koivisto Rune drew inspiration from their travels across the globe in the creation of Nobis Hotel. The hotel’s colour palette, however, is distinctly Scandinavian and was inspired by cold Nordic winters. Nobis Hotel occupies a prime spot on Norrmalmstorg town square and is housed in two interconnected stone buildings from the late 19th century, in a neighbourhood that emerged during Sweden’s industrial revolution.

What are the rooms like?

Spread over six floors, Nobis Hotel’s 201 rooms range in size from 15 to 53 square metres. The grand Nobis Suite is 98 square metres. Nobis Hotel is devoid of the type of faux lux that tries to impress with gold and velvet. Instead, design studio Claesson Koivisto Rune has opted for subdued materials such as wool, wood, stone, leather and glass to create a sense of opulence that comes from true comfort and function. Historic details feature alongside contemporary furniture to create modern-day boudoirs of the rooms and suites.

What else?

Past the lobby and reception desk is a magnificent lounge with 28-metre ceilings. Dubbed ‘Stockholm’s living room’, the space is furnished with an eclectic mix of sofas, armchairs and tables to create space to convene and hang out. Next to it is the striking Gold Bar which, as the name implies, offers a warm, kaleidoscopic atmosphere. Bino, the hotel’s street-level bistro, is a popular lunch spot in the summer months when it opens up onto the square. The low-lit subterranean restaurant Noi, designed by Swedish firm Wingårdhs, presents a menu that draws on gastronomic influences from all over Europe.

What’s the neighbourhood like?

Norrmalm is the central borough of Stockholm. Peppered with parks, waterways and an island, this neighbourhood shows off the city’s ritzy side through theatres, museums and glorious plazas. Norrmalm has some excellent places to stay, great shopping, some very good restaurants and a couple of must-visit museums – not least Nationalmuseum, which was re-inaugurated in 2018, and Hallwylska Museet, an incredible inner-city palace that remains virtually untouched since the late 1800s.
