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. 

From 200 euro per night, check out:

    In welke kamer verbleef je in het hotel? Zijn er bepaalde kamers die je kunt aanbevelen?

    Hartelijke groet,

      Ik sliep in kamer 214. Goeie kamer. Als je in het weekend gaat, zou ik kiezen voor een kamer op een hoge verdieping, want ik hoor nog al eens over geluidsoverlast van de bar. Ik sliep er op maandag en dinsdag dus geen last van gehad. Je kunt ook kiezen voor een kamer met bad – ik had één van de goedkoopste kamers denk ik, want ik kom ook niet echt uit de beschrijvingen op de website. Veel plezier!

      Liefs, Pauline

    Hello!! Great blog. Now that I am planning my trip to Scandinavia I found your posts very informative. I have actually booked tables at some of the restaurants you are recommending. I am thinking of staying at the Story hotel but many of the reviews mention that at night there is a lot of noise coming from the bar that it reaches even the rooms on the forth floor. Is that true? What was your experience as far as the noise is concerned? Thank u so much!

      Hi Chris,

      Thanks for your comment. I hope you will have a great time there, but I bet you will! I’ve stayed at the Story Hotel during the week, so I think it wasn’t that lousy downstairs. I didn’t hear anything. I slept in room 214. But if you want to be sure, choose one of the rooms on higher floors.

      Have fun in Stockholm! Best, Pauline
