The recently-opened Hotel Skeppsholmen is a fantastic place to stay next time you are in Sweden’s capital.
In the heart of Stockholm, in a park-like setting with views of the water, this boutique hotel is housed in former Marine barracks built in 1699. Beautifully renovated, the building now has 81 rooms designed following the clean lines of contemporary Scandinavian style.

“Combined with spare decor, warm service, and plenty of little luxuries where they count, the boutique hotel throws off a casually elegant vibe as appealing to business travelers as it is to those visiting purely for fun. (…) With amenities that include a small gym, alternate dining rooms, meeting rooms, free WiFi, flat screen TVs with DVD players, minibars, and a variety of services—from Concierge to laundry—graciously fulfilled by the efficiently attentive staff, Skeppsholmen represents welcome new version of Scandinavian hospitality.” –The Cool Hunter
