Lonely Planet review
One of Stockholm’s original design hotels, the Birger Jarl has recently had a full renovation and update of the lobby, plus about 30 new rooms and suites. Standard rooms are all done up in ultra-modern Swedish style, but each of the superior rooms is put together by a different Swedish designer, and they're well worth the price upgrade.
Students of vintage interior design should book the Retro Room, which was 'forgotten' during a major renovation and hence has been preserved in all its 1974 glory. (You can request it through the website.) The hotel also offers budget 'cabin' rooms, tiny and windowless but well designed, comfortable and equipped with all the mod-cons. There's a sauna, a top-floor gym and a chic lobby bar with some outdoor seating.
Our independent authors have visited Hotel Birger Jarl and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Stockholm.
