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 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. All rooms boast flat-screen 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.
