Grand Hôtel, Stockholm
Expert reviews

“This is where the literati, glitterati and nobility call it a night. A waterfront landmark, with several exclusive restaurants and a see-and-be-seen piano bar, it remains Stockholm’s most sumptuous lodgings.”

Fodors review:

“At first glance the Grand seems like any other world-class international hotel, and in many ways it is. Its location is one of the best in the city, on the quayside just across the water from the Royal Palace.”

Featured as Fodor’s Choice in Stockholm.

Telegraph review:

“Set right across from the Royal Palace and the harbour Strömkajen, Grand Hotel brags of the ideal location in central Stockholm.

Hotel Miss Clara by Nobis, Stockholm
Expert reviews

“Miss Clara is a boutique hotel that opened last April in a handsome Art Nouveau building from 1910 that was formerly a private girls’ school. Though the name is a tribute to a one-time headmistress, Clara Stromberg, there’s nothing schoolmarmish about this stylish 92-room property.”

“More tasteful than quirky, with room floors and walls in darker wood and stone than you would expect from Nordic design, balanced by subtle ways of leading natural light into nooks and crannies such as bathrooms.”

Featured as Frommer’s Exceptional Choice in Stockholm.

Telegraph review:

“This grand Art Nouveau building was once a girls’ school, and is now a stylish hotel, named after former headmistress Clara Strömberg. The rooms are tastefully decorated and locals and visitors alike love the bar and restaurant for its great atmosphere.”
