Hotels & Lodging: Story Hotel in Stockholm

Sarah Lonsdale November 19, 2010

Wallpaper calls the Story Hotel in Stockholm the "ideal mix between comforting and cutting edge, an urban sanctuary for native Stockholmers and city hoppers alike." Founded by two seasoned veterans of the nightclub industry, the hotel mixes an industrial look (think concrete floors and exposed ducts) with an air of weathered boho-chic. The original building was once a hangout for artists and musicians, and remnants of the past still remain: old doors now serve as wooden bed heads, while graffiti and scraps of former wallpaper have been preserved on the walls to great effect. Sip a lingonberry cocktail with the hipsters at the bar and peruse the eclectic wares from quirky small labels from the adjacent Story Shop; go to the Story Hotel for more information.
