Lonely Planet review
Owned by ABBA’s Benny Anderson and overlooking leafy Mariatorget, this ravishing design hotel is a chic retro gem, complete with vintage 1940s movie theatre and over-the-top art deco cocktail bar. The super-comfy rooms feature posters from great Swedish films and a teddy bear to make you feel at home. Both the smoking and nonsmoking rooms boast flatscreen TVs and good-sized bathrooms, and there’s a scrumptious designer bakery-cafe beside the foyer.
Our independent authors have visited Hotel Rival and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Stockholm.
