If heaven had a bordello, it would resemble this lavish, flamboyant establishment that combines old-world decadence with cutting-edge design. Rooms delight with their heavy velvet curtains, purple-and-crimson colour scheme and opulent beds; thick carpet in the corridors muffles your footsteps; and the fine art adorning the walls comes from the owner's own collection.
There is plenty of whimsy here as well, such as the wired-up original crinoline in the lobby, along with a giant black ceramic panther lurking in the corner. Most of the gorgeous wallpapers and fabrics come from the Swedish Designer Guild. Non-guests can partake of the lavish breakfast buffet (6.30amto 10am Monday to Friday, 7.30am to 11am Saturday and Sunday; 275kr).
