Berns Hotel

8 Nackströmsgatan
Stockholm , Sweden
46 8 5663-2200

Ideally situated for exploring, dining, and clubbing in Central City, the Berns isn’t just an 82-room boutique hotel—there’s also a shockingly large restaurant-bar-nightclub in the landmark building. And by “large,” think Grand Central Station’s little sister (but with an evening-wear makeover). Many mistakenly wander into the glass-enclosed main entry with its spiral staircase and get lost; there’s also a discreet entry for hotel guests wishing to avoid the weekend crowds. Guest rooms come in an array of sizes, most are fairly spacious, and all are decorated with a tasteful mid-century-meets-modern touch: Akariesque light sculptures, curvilinear armchairs, and a mix of woods. As an added bonus, guests get free access to Sturebadet—an exclusive Moorish-style spa-fitness center a few blocks away that is well worth the visit, if just for the architecture.

Insider Tip: If you plan to sleep, you must request a quiet room. The noise comes from various directions, depending on the event.

Room to Book: The few “large rooms with balcony” give you a commanding perch on Stockholm’s social scene around Berzelii Park.
