Vibrantly decorated with art deco, avant-garde black-and-white portraits, bold Andy Warhol–style artwork, and all the trimmings of a boutique hotel, Rival is a modern hotel owned by founding ABBA member Benny Andersson.
Located on Södermalm, the hotel has 99 uniquely designed rooms, cocktail bars, café, restaurant, and a large 700-person cinema for conferences.
More importantly, it also serves the most sought-after smörgåsbord brunch in town. Bookings are made up to 30 days in advance. Dig into the likes of Swedish cured salmon, pancakes, scrambled eggs, steak tartar with egg yolk, and more.
