As you might have read in my previous post, I was back in Stockholm for a couple of days during the Easter weekend. We tried out the top 10 attractions, threw a bomb in our bath and stayed in the Stockholm’s nicest boutique hotel: Miss Clara Hotel!
My girlfriend lived there for a year to study Law at Stockholms University, so I know my way around. I’ve visited her countless times but it had been some time now. In the past, I always stayed at her place, of before that, just booked a chain hotel (like Scandic, there are tons of them in Stockholm). Okay, you’re in good hands and you know there’s a certain level of quality, but there’s no unique atmosphere to it.
This time, we were looking for a boutique hotel! We found the perfect one: Miss Clara Hotel, a unique design hotel in the heart of the city. The title I chose for this post ‘honest review’ almost makes it sound as if there is something wrong with this hotel. The opposite couldn’t be more true. We had an amazing time there! I’m always trying to write an honest review and this time I’m struggling to find something we didn’t like about the hotel. It was absolutely perfect! I could go on for hours talking about it but I’ll try to keep it relatively short ;-).
Miss Clara Hotel is a 4 star boutique hotel that is part of the Nobis group. It is located on Sveavägen, next to Hötorget metro entrance for easy access to everything the city has to offer. The building was originally build in 1910 as an Ateneum, a girl’s school. Stockholm has lots of historic buildings and it is a great feeling to stay in one of them for a few days. The architect managed to maintain elements that refer to the original purpose of the building, combined with timeless Scandinavian design.
Our check-in was very smooth. The girls at the reception desk were lovely!! Always up for a chat when we arrived after spending some time in the city or left to explore some more. You’re not just a number; you’re assured you’re in good hands at Miss Clara.
Our deluxe room was somewhere between 26 and 30 square meters, according to their website. The nice, clean room was sleekly designed and had two huge windows overlooking the street. Beds had Egyptian linen which felt nice and smooth. Modern bathroom with both shower AND bath! We’ve had great fun in the bath using a couple of Bath Bombs from Lush on one snowy evening when we decided to spend the night at the hotel (read more in my previous post). The only thing I didn’t understand was the backrest of a seat that seemed to be attached to the end of the bed, presumably for hanging your clothes, but it looked quite odd, I must say :p
The food in the restaurant and resembles the quality you’ll find throughout the hotel. The breakfast had a wide variety of choices, lots of fruits, eggs and sausages, croissants, and funny tasting health shots for a kick-start of the day!
Dinner was equally delicious.
Miss Clara Hotel also has a sauna and a fitness room, but unfortunately we didn’t have time to try it out.
Make sure you check Miss Clara Hotel if you plan on visiting Stockholm, it has become one of my favorite hotels I’ve stayed in. And since I keep returning to Stockholm every now and them, I have no doubt I’ll choose Miss Clara Hotel the next time I’m visiting! Nobis Group has some other great hotels in Stockholm. They are opening a new one in Copenhagen in September and I’m sure it will be as awesome as the others!
Thanks to al the great people at Miss Clara Hotel for giving me the opportunity to be your guest!
