I have been back a couple of weeks now and still have not had a chance to blog about my recent European trip to Sweden and Germany, Many more posts to come I promise but for now my second post is about a great hotel we stayed at in Stockholm called The Story Hotel, Wallpaper Magazine calls it “The ideal mix of comfort and cutting edge, It is a bohemian-chic hotel mixing new design with vintage, original details. It’s like a slice of New York, Istanbul or Paris has slammed into Stockholm. The surprisingly lo-cost redevelopment has created a hotel in which the outside world simply pales away. The hotel enjoys a packed bar, full bookings and vibrant atmosphere any day of the week. And why not – everyone loves a good yarn”

The Story Hotel is all that, A small hotel in a redeveloped building, It is filled with original wallpapers and wooden flooring, eclectic contemporary pieces dotted with artistic abandon and an understated tertiary pallet, With design from the Swedish supremos at Koncept, Story is an amalgamation of heritage sophistication and contemporary innovation. Adapting original features from the period building it is housed in. It is also surprisingly affordable with a range of different sized rooms. I really liked the bedheads re purposed from old office doors, the mailbox slot still intact.

I have to say the staff were also so great, Our luggage was by our airline lost for 3 days and the staff worked tirelessly to help us search, locate and have it delivered to the hotel, we were so grateful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting beautiful Stockholm, What a city!, More to come, stay tuned.
