Hotel Rival Stockholm (P.O. Box 17525), Sweden

“Fresher and friendlier than other boutique hotels, the Rival is the market leader in comfort and design. The rooms are chic, young and bright with wooden floors, lots of light, and modern artworks. The cinema, bakery and bistro on the ground floor are a winning combination. An ideal city base.”

“Aiming to be ‘classical rather than trendy, comfortable rather than luxurious’, the Rival succeeds stylishly and it has moved the centre of gravity south into Södermalm, an up-and-coming, slightly Bohemian area only three stops on the metro from the central station. Its 1937 building was beautifully modernised in 2002; new carpets were woven, fine furniture bought, artworks commissioned. It looks chic, young and bright. A cinema, bakery, bars and bistro are skilfully wound into the ground floors. The best rooms face the attractive square. Benny Andersson (ABBA) is behind it; this is today’s Grand for a band.”

"It is tastefully decorated in classic boutique-hotel style, with a modern art-deco interior. It even has an on-site bakery and restored cinema, small touches that help make it a very comfortable and relaxed place in which to stay."
