An affordable hotel with colourful and daring décor that sits comfortably amongst the award-winning architecture of recently rebuilt Hammarby

You won’t find this motel by a highway, but on the high street of the newly-renovated marina area of Hammarby, just south of central Stockholm. Motel L is a colourful addition to this carefully curated area. The rooms, including bathrooms, are in bright and bold patterns, decorated with wall illustrations designed by local artist Lisa Bengtsson. The beds are designer too, as well as the rainfall showers in your bathroom. If you can tear yourself away, head downstairs to enjoy your buffet breakfast, use the hotel’s gym or head into Pipes bar for pub food and tap beers.

The waterside district of Hammarby, a bridge away from Södermalm, has won awards for its architecture and town design. This modern suburb has a growing centre of its own, but should you want to explore further, Hammarby is served by both trams and ferries, and is walkable from Gullmarsplan metro station.

1. Nya Carnegiebryggeriet: For beers brewed in-house.
2. Nobelberget (across the bridge at Sickla): For vintage markets and live music.
3. Globen Sky View: For a panorama of southern Stockholm.
