Arriving into the heart of Stockholm, the short drive onto the island of Skeppsholmen takes you to an oasis amidst the city. Staying at Hotel Skeppsholmen in Stockholm is an opportunity to be footsteps from the iconic sights that make the city incredible, all the while, having a retreat to escape to.
The summer-yellow buildings, historic and renovated beautifully, make the Hotel Skeppsholmen what it is today. The former three-hundred-year-old house has been transformed into a modern and cozy space that’s within footsteps of the Museum of Modern Art. Booking with Kiwi Collection, a curated collection of luxury hotels around the world meant an upgraded room and an early check-in to settle in (based on availability). Kiwi Collection carefully selects hotels in cities around the world, which means each stay is as special as the one before.
With views over the islands of Stockholm, the Hotel Skeppsholmen feels a world away from the crowds even though it’s a short walk into Gamla Stan. Upon entering the main building, the cozy interior and fluffy throws over leather seats are just a few of the touches of Sweden design in the hotel. The main building hosts what is the center of all food-related experiences, with a breakfast room which transforms into their lunch and dinner restaurant, Restaurant Långa Raden. The sunlight fills the room making breakfast one of the best ways to start the day in Stockholm. Fresh pastries, coffee, and a handful of other local delights are highlights of the buffet. During the summer months, the patio transforms into a garden oasis where you can lounge out on chairs and enjoy the view from the terrace.
Each of the rooms and suites is carefully designed, integrating Swedish coziness yet preserving the big open windows that pour in light. The light floors, dark furniture, and pops of color make the room feel cheerful and homey. With robes, local Byredo toiletries, and a well-stocked minibar, the room is set for all that you could need during the stay. One of the highlights and design-catching details is in the bathroom — the unique Boffi Basin (sink) that pours water over a large stone. It’s these kinds of details that set the Hotel Skeppsholmen apart.
Hotel Skeppsholmen is a Stockholm hotel that gives you a quiet stay in the heart of the city. With an ideal location, it makes for a great place to call home while exploring the city.

PS — Are You Booking a Trip Soon? Use My Booking Checklist!
These are the sites I use most to book my own trips. Using the links below is a great way to support Bon Traveler’s travel journalism at no extra cost to you. If you need help organizing your itinerary, get my free travel itinerary template here.
1. Book Your Flights
Use Skyscanner to find the best flights. It searches 100s of airlines and websites across the globe to ensure you’re not missing out on any route options or deals.
2. Book Your Accommodations
Use Booking.com for hotels and guest houses. They have the biggest inventory and consistently offer the best rates.
3. Book Your Tours & Experiences
4. Book Your Car
Use Discover Cars or Rentalcars.com to find the best car rental deals. I recommend comparing rental agency reviews on Google to ensure you are booking with the best company in that destination, as the reviews are often more accurate than the car rental search engines.
5. Don’t Forget Airport Lounge Access
Get a Priority Pass membership to gain access to 1,400+ VIP lounges and airport experiences worldwide. The Priority Pass app is the first thing I check when I have a layover. I’ve been a member for over a decade, and having a comfortable place to relax before and between flights makes air travel so much more enjoyable.
6. Don’t Forget Travel Insurance
I never leave the country without travel insurance. It provides comprehensive protection in case anything goes wrong (ie. illness, injury, theft, and cancelations, etc.). I use it frequently for my travels to stay protected.
My favorite companies that offer the best coverage and rates are:
