Make Yourself at Home: Review of the Story Hotel, Stockholm
In a trendy area of downtown Stockholm, bordering two of the destination’s coolest hotspots, Story Hotels Riddargata is part Scandi dream space, part artsy hipster heaven. Based in a historic building, its 10 rooms have made use of the original brick and concrete – adding an industrial edge to the neutral, chic Nordic design. While organic skincare on tap, an artisanal restaurant and cool cocktail bar tick all the design hotel boxes.
What makes Story Hotels, Stockholm, so special?
There’s a uniting look inside Story Hotels, but each of its 10 carefully curated rooms has its own unique personality too, reflected by its name – like The Bathroom, which features a plush bed and large bathtub, side by side. Their names tell a story – not just of what you can expect in each (The Balcony has, unsurprisingly, a private balcony) but of the type of adventure you’ll have. Whether that be sketching and journaling in The Attic, or cosying up with a new love in The Super Squeeze.
What to expect when staying at Story Hotels, Stockholm?
If you’re heading to Stockholm to soak up the best of Scandinavian culture, you won’t be disappointed by the interiors at Story Hotels. Each suite features the classic organic-lined silhouettes you’d expect from Nordic design, along with the pared-back yet cosy design features we fondly refer to as hygge. But this is hygge with a huge difference: it’s been given an industrial injection, through artsy ripped wallpaper, brick, and cool original features like exposed beams and pipes. Along with plenty of art – everywhere.
Maison Flâneur recommends
Staying in might be just as appealing as going out once you’ve checked out your cosy room – stocked with organic skincare from L:A Bruket, and upgraded to include a full, smart entertainment system with streaming services and wireless QI charging. But if you get tired of self-care and crave something more social, you’re right on Riddargatan – a downtown Stockholm street known for its cool bar scene, as well as its proximity to attractions such as a palace, a theatre and the opera.
