Set in the upmarket Östermalm district, on one of Stockholm's most exclusive squares, the Nobis Hotel offers a luxury stay in the centre of the city. The hotel occupies two grand buildings dating from the 19th century -- one of which was the site of a famous 1970s bank heist -- and is less than five minutes' walk from both high-end shopping on Biblioteksgatan and at the Nordiska Kompaniet department store. The National Musuem, which houses art from the medieval period to 1900, is 10 minutes' walk from the hotel.
The hotel has an ornate Classical façade, behind which are minimalist interiors in blue, grey and brown. A courtyard-style lounge area set beneath a soaring, 28-metre-high ceiling is the hotel's focal point -- it's topped by two glass cupolas and features a dramatic crystal chandelier. There's a bar with gold-plated walls, and two restaurants to choose from: the fine-dining NOI and a smart bistro serving more relaxed fare. There's also a 24-hour fitness room and a sauna.
Offering city or courtyard views, bedrooms are decorated in soft neutral tones and have parquet flooring. All include free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, mini bars and laptop-sized safes, as well as Egyptian cotton sheets and marble bathrooms. Higher-category rooms add sitting areas, while suites come with separate living rooms and bathtubs.
