A gorgeous historic building filled with tell-tale Scandinavian minimalist furnishings.
A design hotel with roots in the 17th century, the Hotel Skeppsholmen takes inspiration from the nearby Stockholm Museum of Modern Art for a visually provocative guest experience. Inspired by the thick fog that rolls up on Skeppsholmen Island, a palette of neutral tones reflects an ultramodern, Bauhaus-inflected design in the 81 guest rooms. Tranquility and clarity echo in the accommodations' open spaces, while billowy European linens warm up the minimalist aesthetic. The lack of clutter enables creative and functional use of space in the guest quarters, starting at 160 sq. ft. Flatscreens, Boffi basins, free wireless Internet, and Byredo products are luxurious highlights.
Hotel Skeppsholmen also puts a spin on gastronomy, encouraging "Social Dining," where guests mingle over local beer, wine, and Sweden's "Fika," an alternative to afternoon tea. Centrally located, the hotel is your gateway to the architecture of Gamla Stan and shopping in the art district.
