Lonely Planet review
One of Stockholm’s original design hotels, the Birger Jarl was undergoing renovations when we visited; it was business as usual except for shifting the entrance to Birger Jarlsgatan 61A (around the back of the building). Plans include a redo of the lobby, addition of a verandah, and some 30 new rooms and suites. Currently, standard rooms are on the small and tired side, with a vague ‘70s vibe, but the designer rooms, each put together by a different Swedish designer, are an immersive experience. There’s a gym and sauna to boot.
Our independent authors have visited Hotel Birger Jarl and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Stockholm.
