Miss Clara: Glamorous Lodgings in a Former Girls’ School in Stockholm

November 12, 2018

Swedish hotelier Nobis Group (you may recognize their work from Nobis Hotel Copenhagen) have renovated a former girls’ school in an Art Nouveau building, transforming it into Stockholm’s must-visit hotel. At Miss Clara, the guest rooms offer sparse yet warmly detailed Scandi comforts, and the public spaces are resplendent with Art Nouveau décor. Join us for a virtual tour.

While sparsely furnished, the guest rooms are rich in texture. A herringbone-patterned wood floor continues up the walls to form a wainscot. An elegant valet perched at the bottom of the bed is made from bentwood and echoes the form of a Thonet chair.
