PROPERTY FEATURES

The Premises 

Boutiquey but big, with 82 rooms, Berns Hotel was built as a restaurant in 1863; then reincarnated more than a century later as Stockholm's best-loved hotel and entertainment palace. Rooms are cosy but not tiny, and the entire hotel is dripping with style: the wood panelling feels both modern and warm, and the rooms and public spaces are being updated with new Italian and Scandinavian design elements all the time. Sip schnapps on the terrace, explore the different bars, and escape by lift back to your room at some point in the small hours...

Food & Drink 

Unforgettable Features 

Underneath the chandeliers, in a baroque restaurant big enough to fit a double-decker bus, is Asian restaurant Isaan. The menu draws inspiration from the namesake region in Thailand, where chef Sayan Isaksson grew up. Brunch (from 11.30am to 4pm on weekends) is an institution here – dishes are inspired by Bangkok street food: flavourful noodles, curries and barbeque. The hotel's second restaurant, Calle P, is in the park just across from the main hotel. Chefs Axel Ohlson & Frans Andersson work from an open kitchen, producing simple but delectable Nordic bistro dishes that are designed for sharing. The food is accompanied by an excellent list of fine wines and seductive cocktails, which become the drinks of choice once the DJ starts spinning in the late hours.

Liquid Bliss 

There are a number of bars, a VIP area, and a terrace that gets packed in summer. The lounge bar has huge chandeliers, mirrored walls, balconies and a stage, and is popular with the media and fashion crowd.

Experience the Extraordinary 

Go for a sauna and massage, or hire a private Turkish bath at the Sturebadet. Head to the beach (yes, really): sandy Flatenbadet is better suited to brisk dips than topping up tans, but it's a popular spot when there's even just a wink of sun. In winter, go skiing in Flottsbro, or skating in Kungsträdgården Park. The Moderna Museet has a superb collection of Swedish and international art. More than 16, 000 paintings and sculptures are housed in the National Museum on Södra Blasieholmshamnen. The open-air museum Skansen on Djurgården recalls the Sweden of bygone days, with flora and fauna, farms, manor-houses and craftspeople at work. The Vasamuseet: the Vasa is the world’s only surviving 17th-century ship. Watch the changing of the guard (12.15pm on weekdays, or 1.15pm on Sundays) daily in the Outer Courtyard of the beautiful Royal Palace. Biblioteksgatan, near Stureplan, has a concentration of upmarket shops. On Hornsgatan are irresistible interior design and art shops. Södermalm has many secondhand and antiques shops, as well as one-off boutiques and skater shops. For handicrafts and knick-knacks, visit Gamla Stan (the Old Town). Don’t leave without visiting Östermalmshallen Market on Humlegårdsgatan. In a characterful building next to the flower market, it’s a huge delicatessen selling every type of top-quality food you can think of, with bars and restaurants to stop off in. Get a boat out to the archipelago of Vaxholm in summer and have a champagne picnic (ask the hotel to pack you one). Or sail to the Royal Swedish Yacht Club (two hours from the central port) and visit the pretty beaches and harbour at Sandhamn, on the island of Sandön.
