If you’re looking for that over-the-top, opulent but classic, hotel experience, The Grand Hôtel is your best bet. Rooming guests since 1874, the waterfront location looking over at The Royal Palace and the cobbled streets of Gamla Stan (the city’s Old Town) is hard to beat. The accommodations are brimming with old-world charm—soaring ceilings with crown moldings, four-poster beds with high thread count sheets, and luxurious bathrooms. The hotel is home to acclaimed chef Matthias Dahlgren’s Michelin-starred restaurant Matbaren (we also love Dahlgren’s more casual café Green Rabbit on nearby Tegnérgatan). After a long day of sightseeing, check into the hotel’s Nordic spa for a series of invigorating, Scandi-style treatments including hot and cold baths, a pine-scented sauna, and traditional Swedish massage.
