1. Ett Hem
Where is it? Stockholm, Sweden
Why go? Well it's a mere ten minutes from Stockholm Central Station, so super conveniently placed. That aside, Ett Hem is ‘a home’ you’d love to call 'your home', even if it is just for one day. Less a hotel, more of a trio of private houses. The vibe is laidback and Scandi cool. Wood-panelled rooms (by the dozen) with flashes of contemporary. Some have marble bathrooms, others retro chandeliers, cast-iron four-posters, and a wood-burning stove. Hang out in the library, relax in the cool glasshouse, or have a treatment and really allow yourself to relax in the mini-spa. A fitness area includes pilates equipment, and the chef (yes, this is a hotel list after all, we're not going to leave you to do the cooking!) creates simple meals, with a distinctly Swedish flavour, from whatever the day’s market offers. Try something new, enjoy privacy, feel very very fancy. Did we mention you're right in Stockholm?
