Placed by Stockholm Ström next to the Royal Castle with a colourful history from the 17th century till today. Until the mid-20th century Stockholm Ström was a busy port. Here, by the waterfront, large ships would unload their goods and trade was conducted. The property has throughout the years hosted a mixture of warehouse, residential quarter, coffee house and guesthouses. Seven houses dating from the 17th century to the early 20th century have been merged, creating this single hotel complex. Traces of these buildings are still evident today. You can see this evidence in the thick brick walls, heavy wooden floors and sloping walls and roof. There is even a footprint from the 17th century in the bricks in our basement. The Per Brahe conference room is decorated with the interior from the shipwrecked S/S Per Brahe, that amongst others took the life of artist John Bauer when it sank.
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting: take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.

I usually try to stay at Hilton / IHG through loyalty to their loyalty programs. But really - why? Sometimes you get to a new hotel and wake up and smell the flowers. For me, this was just such a moment. The greeting at check-in...More
