If you’re looking for a charming and unique boutique hotel experience in central Stockholm, look no further than Ett Hem. The moniker for this 20th century townhouse means “a home” in Swedish, and at home is exactly how you’ll feel.
Owner Jeanette Mix has curated an assortment of design staples and vintage finds from all over Europe, transplanting them to this luxurious Arts and Crafts residence to create a completely unique space. This is not a typical hotel, it’s a place where guests are treated like friends and family, where you can borrow a book from the library, pour a glass of wine from the fridge, and settle into a comfortable seat in the conservatory, ready to while away the afternoon.
The 12 rooms and suites are authentic and original, a blend of contemporary and vintage design. Some have rain showers, others have luxurious freestanding tubs. Some offer fireplaces or stoves. And all offer personality in spades, alongside creature comforts like flatscreen TVs, iPod docking stations, and Kiehl’s toiletries to spoil the senses.
With Stockholm’s trendy Östermalm neighbourhood just outside your door, Ett Hem is the perfect spot to call home in this Scandi capital. It’s the new benchmark for laid-back Swedish hospitality and Stockholm’s ultimate address.
Lightfoot Travel provides tailor-made itineraries that include daily tours and excursions, restaurant recommendations and bookings, and can incorporate Stockholm into a greater Sweden holiday. Take a look at Sweden Winter Holiday as an example of a bespoke itinerary that we can create for you.
