Built in 1699 to house Sweden’s Royal Marines, and sitting right behind the stunning Moderna Museet, this eco-friendly, chic hotel is right on the waterfront, on one of the calmer islands in this busy city. The interior is clean, bright, and truly Scandinavian—think white painted wood ceilings, blond hardwood floors, and blue-and-yellow accents for a touch of color. Thoughtful design details include writing desks in each of the seventy-eight rooms, big windows (many of them overlooking the pretty harbor) and comfy bucket-style chairs.
