Pop House is a fun, whimsical boutique hotel located on the peaceful Djurgården Island in the same building as the ABBA Museum
Music lovers might particularly appreciate the Pop Hotel’s shared entrance with the Abba Museum, or the fact that one of its owners is former band member Bjorn Ulvaeus. Opened in 2013, the hotel’s 49 rooms, brightly decorated with accents of purple and lime green, are filled with light thanks to panoramic sliding windows. Guests are offered a choice between twin, queen or king-sized beds, which along with linens and toiletries are locally made by eco-friendly Swedish companies.
All rooms are equipped with amenities such as bathrobes, hairdryers, 42-inch flat-screen TVs and safes (large enough to fit a laptop), as well as a terrace. There’s also a small gym and an elegant restaurant. Only a five-minute tram ride from downtown, the hotel is located right by Gröna Lund amusement park, the Swedish Music Hall of Fame and Skansen, one of the world’s oldest museums.
A tranquil parkland oasis in the centre of Stockholm, Djurgården is home to some of Sweden’s most popular museum sites such as the open-air Skansen, historical buildings and recreational green spaces.
1. Gröna Lund: For scary rides and family fun at Sweden’s oldest amusement park.
2. Skansen Museum: For a tour of five centuries of Swedish history.
3. Skroten Cafe och skeppshandel: For a delicious nautical-themed lunch in an old shipyard.
Time Out tip
Book the Mamma Mia suite to sleep under a canopy of leaves and a painted sky blue ceiling. Better yet, book a ticket to the Mamma Mia party for an unforgettable interactive musical performance over a Mediterranean dinner.
