What's not to love, love, love about this new-in-2017 boutique hotel housed in a towering, rock-solid former power station? You could be forgiven for thinking you're in downtown Manhattan when you step into the fabulous lobby or open the door to your sumptuously furnished guestroom. Thoroughly on-the-pulse, this imaginative property is a tribute to a legacy of Swedish design genius.
The hotel is owned and managed by a small Swedish consortium whose years in the business reflect in their attention to the guest experience. There are also restaurants, a killer day spa and…an indoor water park – Kokpunkten Actionbad. One to remember.
Opening August 2016, featuring a rooftop restaurant and bar overlooking Lake Mälaren, Steam Hotel is an 18-storey hotel just 2 km away from central Västerås.
