Staying at Ett Hem – Swedish for ‘a home’ – feels like a home away from home. Since its opening in 2012, owner Jeanette Mix has perfected Ett Hem’s low-key yet elegant atmosphere that makes guests feel like part of the household. Housed in three neighbouring red-brick townhouses, Mix enlisted the help of Ilse Crawford in designing the 22-bedroom boutique hotel that also houses a lush patio garden and greenhouse, a cosy kitchen, a well-stocked library, a grand sitting room, a gym and a Hamam. The winter of 2022 and 2023 will see the opening of three residences for long-term stays.

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. 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.

A listed Brutalist building, designed by Swedish architects Boijsen & Efervgren in the 1970s for Swedish bank Swedbank, now houses a hotel as aesthetically uncompromising as its severe monolithic facade. The atmosphere At Six is sombre and highly refined, and all fifteen floors are jam-packed with art and design by some of the world’s best contemporary artists and designers. This chic urban playground offers guests a restaurant, a bistro, two bars and a rooftop park within its four robust walls.

Inspired by strong women – Karin Larsson, Peggy Guggenheim and Kiki De Montparnasse – that were true intellectuals and visionaries of their time, Stockholm hotel Villa Dagmar is a bolthole for the curious traveller in search of both substance and style. Co-owner Anna Cappelen has worked together with architect studio Tengbom and interior designers Per Öberg and Helena Belfrage to create a property that is an ode to life, and to beauty.

Housed in a red-brick townhouse – one of Stockholm’s oldest buildings – is Hotel Frantz, named after Frantz Bock, the master tailor that commissioned the structure in 1647. This quaint and stylish hotel is run by the Pettersson family, whose four family members you’re likely to get personally acquainted with during your stay, and gives guests a remarkably intimate and affordable hospitality experience in the very heart of town.
