When I visited Stockholm as a student, I holed up in a cozy houseboat hostel on the river which, while quaint and charming, wasn't the best bet for someone with a seasick tendency. I vowed to make sure my next stay in the Swedish city was on land, and hopefully, somewhere a little more upscale.
Since I discovered Berns Salonger Hotel, a landmark in the city since 1863, I've been crafting plans for a Scandinavian vacation that'll blow those college days out of the water. One look at the elegant boutique hotel's unique, contemporary, and fresh interiors and I became determined to return. The hip accommodations also feature conference and banqueting facilities, a vibrant Asian restaurant and Summer terrace, popular bars, and the nightclub Gallery 2.35:1, one of the best music venues in town. It's also the location of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Stockholm, which might sway you fashionistas to visit.
Whether you have a European getaway in your future, or you're just looking for inspiration for you own interior décor, this Swedish home away from home is definitely eye candy for design fanatics. Come take a look!
