For too long, hotels for corporate trips have been afterthoughts. We say enough is enough. A good hotel can be one of the highlights of a trip. You work hard, so you deserve to live like royalty.
We’ve put this guide together for the best hotels in Stockholm for you and your international delegates to convince you so.
Nordic Light Hotel
Nordic Light Hotel is the full Nordic experience, which is really what you’re after when it comes to hotels in Stockholm. It’s central, meaning you can explore Stockholm’s finest sights and restaurants on foot, and it embraces the Nordic tradition of comfort and design.
There are 159 rooms and ten suites designed by John Tong to reflect Nordic concepts of tranquillity, harmony, and recovery. Only locally sourced materials have been used, with attention to acoustic insulation, comfort, Björk & Berries amenity products and free WiFi.
Their restaurant, LYKKE, focuses on making you feel welcome. It feels like a friendly local bistro. You’ll get to experience flavours from all over our little planet, like southern Europe, the Middle East, and flavours closer to their Northerly home. Regardless if you want a full dinner, a light snack, brunch, lunch or just a drink, it’s an excellent place to hang out.
The Grand Hotel has been a hotel of choice in Stockholm for celebrities, high profile guests, and folk who love luxury since 1874. You’ll find it on the waterfront, overlooking the Royal Palace and Gamla Stan.
The Nordic Spa & Fitness facility is extraordinary, with delights such as a Swedish massage, chiropractors, Chinese medicines and personal trainers.
The spacious rooms and suites are outrageously fancy. There are terraces, parlours, grand pianos, and king-size beds.

Hotel J is on Nacka Strand, a short journey away from the noise of the city. You are right on the doorstep to the famous archipelago islands, while still being close enough to embrace the city.
The rooms have a white and blue colour scheme. Very appropriate for its proximity to the sea. There are private balconies, amazing sea views – yes, a sea view only Stockholm hotels could offer, double beds, and super-fast wifi.
Restaurant J is a crucial part of your stay here. It’s a seaside restaurant in the city’s urban archipelago. Using ingredients from the archipelago’s 30,000 islands, it’s unpretentious and delicious – the best of seafood and Americana.
Njuta Spa is also a lovely part of your Hotel J package. It all takes place in a villa attachment from the 19th century. The service is personalised to each guest, so pick your treatment or trust the masters.
Hesselby Castle is Sweden’s self-confessed music castle, just outside the city. It’s got 70 different rooms, a restaurant with a capacity of 140 people, and 12 conference rooms for up to 2 to 130 guests.
The rooms are all named after musical themes, and you’d be a fool to notice the musical decorations. Each room is unique and entirely quirky. They are loud in design like the music the hotel is famed for.
They put on many activities, like concerts, tastings, team buildings, music studios, lecturers, and parties. And, to seal the deal, they’ve got a sauna and free parking. Magnifique. If you like 5 star hotels Stockholm will do you right!
Hotel at Six
Hotel at Six is a phoenix of a hotel. It stands on the ground of the old Brunkebergstorg, where Stockholm’s high society and cultural elite would meet at the turn of the 19th century.

Näsby Castle is known as the party castle! It’s been home to countless parties, weddings and meetings. You’ll find it next to Näsbyviken in Täby. So you’re just 15 minutes away from the city. Hotels in Stockholm don’t come much livelier.
The restaurant is a backdrop to any occasion. Be sure to catch their gentile afternoon teas or popular afterwork sessions. Their menu is relative to the season at hand, and they love using hands-on cooking techniques like pickling, digging and smoking.
Take a dip off the jetty, a walk around the picturesque grounds, or laze about in their super rooms. They are newly built and have modern touches like Bluetooth speakers. What you’ll love is the 1950’s elegance they recall – fireplaces, private balconies, king-size beds, bathtubs. It’s heaven.
