Modern meets bohemian on Riddargatan in downtown Stockholm
The Story Hotel Stockholm sets itself apart by offering a luxurious setting without an ounce of pretentiousness to be found on the property or the attitude within. The urban architecture and artsy spaces throughout are occupied with eclectically meshed designer furniture and a very hip crowd -- both Stockholm natives and visitors. With the best of the thriving metropolis of Stockholm just outside of the front doorstep of the Story Hotel, guests are assured a happening stay and a plethora of pedestrian-friendly excursions.
Highlights
  • Free wireless Internet in all guest rooms and public areas of Story Hotel Stockholm
  • Hip, trendy Restaurant Story with lively atmosphere and fresh, funky cuisine choices
  • Breakfast included in room rate
  • Wonderwall offers an art gallery for purchase in hotel lobby and throughout guest rooms
  • The Story bar offers a lively apres dinner atmosphere reminiscent of a Parisian salon
Rooms
The Story Hotel Stockholm offers 83 individually unique rooms with uber urban flair and a hint of bohemian chic discreetly fills the air and spaces. Somehow, rustic comes across as luxurious with the use of polished, intentional decor. Guests may feel as though they have settled into a night's rest in a pseudo art gallery in the evenings.
Features
The artsy Story Hotel Stockholm is located in the heart of downtown near the famous blocks of Stureplan and Ostermalm. Check out the hip Story bar where energy abounds on weekends when the DJ turns the ambience up a notch. The canine-friendly property also offers same-day laundry service and conscientious concierge services around the clock.

Great design, good value in expensive city.

Story Hotel is one block from the Metro, near shopping and many restaurants. Interesting and art-filled room, really comfortable bed. Could use more functional space in the bathroom. Breakfast was included and delicious. The restaurant was beautiful and food very good. Staff was first-rate. In a very expensive city, it is a good value.

Amazing location, very friendly, helpful staff for tourists

Our room was tiny, but comfortable. Stayed with 2 other couples who had higher priced rooms both were HUGE! Staff was very friendly and hotel location was amazingly close to anything and everything you could possibly want to do in Stockholm.

Good hotel

The hotel was a nice place. There were only several drawbacks. One was there was no air conditioning, which is no problem, but, there was no fan, and when you opened the window you listened to the drunk people from the bar downstairs. The staff was very helpful in every situation. The morning breakfast could not have been any better. Just the noise, and also 1 more thing. The drapes do not keep the sunlight out which lasts most nights and days, The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was very nice looking.

Great location, close to restaurants. Does get a little loud due to the bar downstairs on weekends. Breakfast was decent , not as large a spread as other scandinavian hotels but sufficient.

Location, location, location

Aside from not having internet in our room (staff tried unsucessfully to resolve the issue) our hotel stay was wonderful. Story Hotel is located within walking distance to most everything; Vasa, Skansen, King Garden, Gamil Stan, Olympic Stadium... as well as Arlanda Express. We bought a bus pass and didn't end up needing it. Breakfast each morning was fresh and having a fridge in our room was another nice amenity.

Östermalms saluhall (otherwise known as the temple of gastronomy) is a very worthwhile, short walk from the hotel. This Hall is contains a large assortment of traditional Swedish meals to dine in or take out.

Awesome hotel

Only downside is the music from the bar below. On the other hand there is a great bar below the Hotel. Go down for a drink in your pj's. We were on the third floor, you could feel/hear the bass but not enough to keep you from sleeping. Stayed in the standard room, plenty of space, huge by European standards, waterfall shower, it was awesome. Service was great, we scored free wraps from the hostess one night. The key code to get into your room is also cool and convenient. The old elevator next to the modern talking one is a novel alternative. Would stay again and recommend to friends

Funky and dark decor, but fun

Our room was very small, but I think there were larger choices, just not available when we reserved. The 'check-in area" was the hallway on the way to the elevator, and there was a computer for people to check themselves in if they had made a reservation directly thru the hotel. Room "keys" were a number code for the door lock of your room. We required an actual person to check in because we booked thru an outside agency, but that was easily done. The hotel seemed dark and they don't use a lot of light in either their foyer, bar or restaurant,nor halls but they were all very warm and inviting nonetheless. Breakfast, (included) was good and the bar had live music on some nights. We did not have any dinners there, but it was always busy so I assume it was good. I would definitely stay there again, but if I were staying for a long time, or had a lot of luggage, I would try and reserve a larger room.
