Lonely Planet review
Owned by ABBA’s Benny Andersson and overlooking leafy Mariatorget, this ravishing design hotel is a chic retro gem, complete with vintage 1940s movie theatre and art-deco cocktail bar. The super-comfy rooms feature posters from great Swedish films and a teddy bear to make you feel at home. All rooms have good-size bathrooms and flat-screen TVs with Blu-ray players.
The scrumptious bakery-cafe and restaurant-bar attached to the hotel are prime spots from which to ogle Stockholm's beautiful people. In summer, splurge on a deluxe room with a balcony for even better views.
Our independent authors have visited Hotel Rival and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Stockholm.
