The best hotels in Östermalm
Intimate and exclusive
In just a few years, the gorgeous Ett Hem in Lärkstaden has established itself as possibly the most luxurious hotel in Stockholm - without making a big fuss about it. With just a few rooms and suites it's extremely exclusive and the personal, intimate feel that pervades the whole hotel is unique. Ilse Crawford is responsible for the design, which wows even the most jaded of international visitors and style magazines.
Personal boutique hotel
One of several boutique hotels around Stureplan. The Sparrow is an intimate, personal and elegant hotel with a luxurious feel. Despite its proximity to the pulse of Stureplan, the hotel provides a peaceful oasis where you can eat dinner and enjoy a cocktail at The Sparrow Wine Bar & Bistro.
The building housing Hotell Kung Carl right next to vibrant Stureplan fronts onto Birger Jarlsgatan, Kungsgatan and Norrlandsgatan. Each hotel room is individually decorated, with classic objects and antiques bought at auction over the years. Don't miss the restaurant Kung Carls Bakficka which is inspired by the home of the hotel owner who lived there during the last turn of the century.
A stone's throw from Stureplan
The historic Elite Hotel Stockholm Plaza is situated right next to Humlegården park and vibrant Stureplan. The hotel offers 143 elegantly decorated bedrooms and a spa with sauna for anyone looking to take a break from the hustle and bustle of big city life. On the hotel's ground floor you'll find the award-winning restaurant Vassa Eggen.
The Hotel Diplomat on Strandvägen has five stars for good reason; you can expect world-class service here as well as spectacular views. The hotel has 130 light and airy rooms and exclusive suites all decorated in classic, timeless style. Stockholm nightlife awaits just around the corner.
The Scandic Park's location, north of Humlegården on Karlavägen, gives the hotel a unique position. Here, the quiet residential neighbourhood of Villastaden meets the green oasis of Humlegården park, but Karlavägen and the city centre are still just around the corner. It's a particularly great spot if you're a football fan - this is where the Swedish football team usually park their team bus and spend the night when they're in town.
Family-owned on Östermalmstorg
The family-owned Mornington opened its doors by Östermalmstorg back in 1973. The hotel's seven floors house almost everything you could want from a hotel; in addition to the 221 rooms there's a restaurant, library and health club. Their breakfast buffet and brunch are popular with hotel guests and visitors alike.
You'll find one of the latest additions to the Stockholm hotel scene on Nybrogatan. Villa Dagmar has a restaurant, inner courtyard and bar. Hotel rooms in this newly-renovated classic building are luxurious, comfortable and elegant and personal service is the hotel's watchword. The boutique hotel is little sister to the better-known Hotel Diplomat, which is just a short walk away.
A peaceful oasis in the city
A short walk along Strandvägen, away from the hustle and bustle, you'll find this peaceful oasis with its own jetty, gardens, restaurant and hotel. Spend the night in immaculately decorated rooms in beautiful natural surroundings where you can breathe out and relax. The hotel can also organise functions and conferences.
Calm and comfortable
Riddargatan, and this hotel named after it, lies just a stone's throw from lively Stureplan. As a contrast to the busy city life outside, the hotel's interiors are an oasis of calm. Comfortable beds in the rooms, a small library and an open fire in the breakfast room are just some of the elements that will make your shoulders drop as soon as you cross the threshold here.
Romantic fin-de-siècle dream
Next door Nybroviken, from where the archipelago ferries set off to the islands, you'll find the boutique hotel Esplanade. If you're looking for a personal hotel experience, combined with a fantastic location, packaged in romantic turn-of-the-century style, this is the place to book.
The Clarion Collection Hotel Wellington is centrally situated in Östermalm, with Stureplan just a few minutes' walk away. Despite its handy location, the surrounding area is calm and peaceful, among residential districts with small shops and with Östermalmstorg, with its wide selection of shops and restaurants, just around the corner.
Urban design hotel
Just a short walk from the hustle and bustle of Stureplan, you'll find Story Hotel, a hip design hotel where raw materials such as concrete and metal, combined with edgy modern art, set the tone. The hotel restaurant Ling Long is a popular spot.
Central meeting place
This Scandic hotel has become a popular meeting place among Stockholmers, who come for something to eat, a drink at the bar, to work for a few hours in the lounge or to visit the roof terrace and enjoy the city pulse from up high. The rooms are decorated in modern style and vary from smaller single rooms to large suites.
Close to everything
This Elite hotel has undergone a modern renovation and has views over Humlegården park, close to both shops and restaurants. The hotel has 124 stylishly and sustainably decorated rooms. Staff are available 24 hours a day and personal service is extremely important to them. There's also a wellness area with gym and relaxation area.
