The most famous luxury hotel in Stockholm is Grand Hotel. Just like it sounds Grand Hotel is the place for classic style. The hotel also has the best SPA in town, Raison d’Etre, where you can spend at least a day or two. If you are looking for a good brunch place with a cozy atmosphere Grand Hotel’s “The Cardier Bar” is the place for you. For dinner you should definitely pay a visit to celebrity chef Mathias Dahlgren’s “Matbaren”. Next-door is another wonderful hotel, the Lydmar. Smaller, much more boutique like with a great restaurant/library. The Lydmar is a popular spot among the locals too. Ask for a room that faces the water and the Royal Palace. If you like the feeling of having views over the water you should check in at Hotel Diplomat. In addition to a great location Diplomat offers a nice bar and a popular restaurant: the T-Bar. Just a couple of minutes away you can find the latest addition of luxury hotels in Stockholm, the Nobis Hotel. Besides fantastic rooms and an amazing lounge Nobis Hotel also offers the best Italian food in town. Celebrity chef Stefano Catenacci is the man behind the menu and I would say a visit to Caina is mandatory or if you are only up for drinks then Gold Bar is the place for you! Looking for a luxury boutique hotel? Then I would recommend you to check in at the newly opened "A Home”. A Home is just like it sounds a home away form home, but slightly more luxurious! The hotel is a ten-minute walk away from Stureplan. In addition to a conservatory where you can eat breakfast you can also relax in the private library. Notice the decor that is made by world famous interior designer Ilse Crawford.
This is where everyone from Justin Bieber and Beyonce Knowles to the winners of the different Nobel prizes stays when they're in town. There's a popular spa, and a gym favored by the citys celebrities because it's privacy, and of course the wonderful Cadier Bar, the big glass veranda where guests eat or lounge and Mathias Dahlgren restaurant (two Michelin stars). No wonder everyone in Stockholm loves Grand Hôtel, but they're also respectful. No one will be bothered here.
The slightly hipper choice is actually just a few blocks from Grand Hôtel. Its restaurant and bookish lobby are hot spots, but the standard is very high and it was built to be safe enough to be able to house guest of the same importance as Obama.
Ett hem (A home)
This townhouse is almost hard to find even when right outside the building which seems like a small fort. But inside the small gate there's a garden and the entrance to the hotel. No outsiders are let in here, and Ett Hem is by far the coziest choice. It's interior design was made by Ilse Crawford, and the twelve room are all different but .
A rather new hotel at Norrmalmstorg, right in the middle of the city. The interior is made by the architects Claesson Koivisto Rune, and contemporary design meets the old traditional 19th century style of the house, with a sumptuos result.
