With a rooftop spa and a concierge dedicated to wellness, this hotel adjacent to Brunkeburg Square is big on amenities—minus the hefty price tag

Whether you’re an urban explorer or outdoor aficionado, this is your ultimate basecamp. Pluck a complimentary kayak from the lobby and explore Stockholm’s breathtaking archipelago, or borrow a bike for a spontaneous tour of Gamla Stan’s picturesque cobblestoned streets. Or stay in—the hotel’s playful, nature-inspired interior energizes the many communal spaces in this property.

You can lounge in a hammock, partake in a free social happy hour or attend a film screening, spiritual workshop or yoga class (there’s even one that’s just for men). There is a games-room on every floor, a 25-seat theatre and a rooftop wellness oasis with an outdoor pool heated year-round, plus a sauna, juice and cocktail bar and panoramic sea views.

Some rooms feature connecting doors to neighbouring suites; all are spacious, family- and pet-friendly, boasting free Wi-Fi, high-definition televisions and fridges, bunkbeds or sofa beds and window seats with extensive views of the city. An organic breakfast, included in the daily rate, is filled with superfoods and alternatives to accommodate the most restrictive of diets.

Norrmalm is Stockholm’s busiest neighborhood, home to the main shopping street, Mood Stockholm shopping mall and famous icons such as the Old Haymarket and the Sergels Torg glass obelisk. It is minutes away from Gamla Stan, and the waterfront area of Strömkajen, from where most boat tours depart.

1. Nordiska Kompaniet:
For upscale shopping and souvenirs you won’t find anywhere else
2. Opera House (Operan): For excellent opera and ballet performances
3. Stockholm Wine Bar: For locally sourced Scandinavian cuisine and an extensive wine list

Time Out tip
Check with the lifestyle concierge for the week’s complementary social activity calendar or borrow free of charge a bike (with helmet and lock), skateboard, longboard or kayak.
