Visiting Stallmästaregården hotel in Stockholm, with an endless forest around it and magnificent view of the Royal Haga Park and Brunnsviken bay, was a simply mesmerizing experience. The hotel, which opened in 2000, presents a picturesque oasis, with overwhelming feel of tranquility of a luxury country retreat, even though it is just minutes away from the city center. Here you come to find inspiration, relaxation and a magnificent place for a romantic getaway.
Being Stockholm’s oldest inn. Stallmästaregården is in function since the 1600s, when it once hosted Sweden‘s Queen Kristina. Back in the day, the Queen often used to ride and hunt in the pastoral areas around Brunnsviken Bay. In 1645, she decided to celebrate the Midsummer holiday there, on the Ebbe Håkansson‘s farm. The rumor of this spread in the city and the stable master Håkansson decided to open an inn.

While being idyllically tucked between the forest and the lake, Stallmästaregården is actually closer to Stockholm’s city center than anyone can think. Its closest neighborhood, Vasastan (separated only by the highway) is full of restaurants, bars, shops and art galleries. In other words – all the necessities of modern urban life are right there, in a grasp of a hand. And that’s exactly what makes Stallmästaregården a hotel like no other. It combines the best of both worlds, and does it astonishingly good.

Now owned by the prestigious Nobis group, this four star property comprises forty-nine rooms, situated around the 17th-century farmhouse. Its interior is designed in 18th-century Swedish style, with pastel-colored walls and curtains with floral print. We stayed in the 40 sqm Junior Suite etage with split two levels, decorated in a typical Swedish style that felt quite homey and warm. The soft palette of whites and pale grays here pays tribute to this style while still feeling modern and fresh. On the first floor there is a living room with work area and a sofa set, where we enjoyed our nights in a splendid view on the hotels garden while drinking champagne. On the second floor is the bedroom with rustic style furniture, nature-inspired textures and simple and earthy colors. In the morning we woke up with an amazing view on the Brunnsviken bay.
