Hotel SkeppsholmenWith its unfinished natural wood floors and clean-lined, understatedly modern furnishings, Hotel Skeppsholmen looks, at first glance, like another ode to contemporary Swedish design, especially considering it was designed by the star team at Claesson Koivisto Rune.
But you’d be wrong to think the Hotel Skeppsholmen is new. Its buildings—hidden just 10 minutes from the city center on the leafy island of Skeppsholmen—date back to 1699, and are so fastidiously preserved that no structural changes were allowed during the renovations and no holes could be drilled without approval from the preservation authorities. And that’s just a small piece of the hotel’s dedication to all things authentically and traditionally Swedish; unlike many trendy Stockholm hotels and restaurants, the Skeppsholmen has focused on local cuisine, local designers, local beers, and, of course, local insider knowledge. Now, that’s Swedish hospitality.

Stay Secluded in Sweden at Skeppsholmen
The 315-year-old Skeppsholmen, located on the secluded little island of the same name, is the former stomping ground of Swedish royals. They retreated here when they wanted some peace and quiet away from the bustle of Stockholm’s Old Town, which is separated by a tiny bridge that takes seconds to cross if you drive slowly. Be sure to order seafood at the restaurant. The fish was probably swimming off the coast of the property that morning. From $260
