Most striking feature:
Where do I begin? Let’s start from the moment I’ve entered the black building in the center of Stockholm. There are two computers where you can check yourself in, but you can also ask someone of the hotel itself to help you out. The staff is looking fabulous. In cool clothes. One girl was wearing a red jacket which was beautiful and I immediately wanted to have it myself. To the right is the bar, to the left is the kitchen. I stayed at the second floor in room number 214. When you are on your floor, the elevator says: ‘hello, my name is Luca, I live on the second floor’, and then in Swedish. A man I was standing together in the elevator immediately got the giggles by hearing that.
The room is very spacious. Ofcourse the walls are made of concrete with old wallpaper pieces shining through it. You can immediately dim the lights (also in the bathroom) in the room to fit it to your mood. There’s a design chair, a table of Hay (I get where Scandic Vulkan got his inspiration from), a rack with bath ropes on it, a mini bar filled with water, two good magazines and the purple blanket on the bed is from Hay. The bathroom is filled with Face Stockholm goodies, a fabulous rain shower and a beautiful sink.
I am a person who needs a heavy breakfast – especially with a busy day of spotting ahead. Tea, jus d’orange, bread with salmon and cucumber, eggs, fruit and yoghurt is all you can choose from (and more). At night you can ease down on the couches in the bar. In summer they have a back yard. The best souvenir of Stockholm you can buy here and that’s the Story Hotel cup.
