“A minimalistic design hotel on a quiet island close to the city centre. White on white rooms with large windows, blond wood floors and uber modern bathrooms. Swedish food served in a relaxed friendly restaurant. Perks include a waterfront tennis court and yoga in the park. A modern escape.”

Hotel Review

Royal marines’ barracks from 1699 opened in 2009 as an hotel provide very large and rather beautiful rooms with big windows overlooking leafy grounds and the surrounding harbour. Be prepared for black rubber bedside lamps and a large stone in the wash basin; this is for experienced travellers who know minimal. Spotlessly clean, very quiet, pleasant restaurant. As in most Swedish hotels, you take your own bags to your room. And although central, be prepared for a largish taxi bill getting on and off the island.

Hotel Skeppsholmen in Stockholm

"Combine a friendly staff and a serene location within striking distance of the city’s action, and the Hotel Skeppsholmen hits every mark. With the Byredo candle burning in the lobby and dramatic hallway light installations, the whole place oozes chic; even the elevator is inexplicably cool."
