Hotel Kungsträdgården – The King’s Garden




This is an intimate hotel with classic Swedish charm, bang in the centre of Stockholm and opposite the park after which the hotel is named. Perfect for city slickers looking for a pastoral vibe back at base.

The Location

Hotel Kungsträdgården – The King’s Garden Hotel – is an elegant 18th century building in the centre of the city, opposite the King’s Garden Park.  The park plays host to events throughout the year including a Christmas Market and an ice rink in the winter months and classical concerts in the summer.   It is a great place to sit, relax and watch the folk of Stockholm go by.

Stockholm is a very walkable and cycleable city and the Old Town (Gamla Stan) is just a 5 to 10 minute walk away.  The creative and funky Sofo district is easily reached on the underground in 15 minutes – the nearest underground station is two minutes walk away.

  • The feeling of intimacy. This feels like a much smaller hotel than it actually is
  • Brasserie Makalös with its French inspired menu, is a very stylish but relaxed place to enjoy some of the best food being served in the city.
  • The location – in the thick of it all with amazing shopping and easy access to all that Stockholm has to offer
  • Stockholm, situated on 14 islands, is famous for it high quality of life and its very tolerant and open society. It was “gay friendly” before the term was invented so there is no real need for a gaybourhood because everywhere and everyone is gay friendly
  • While there are 94 rooms in this hotel it feels like there are far fewer.  Each room is individually decorated so there is nothing ‘standard’ in the way they look
  • There are several room sizes ranging from standard King Superior de Luxe to Single rooms.  They are all unique in some way but are all light and spacious with high ceilings, glittering chandeliers, stripped wooden floors and an 18th century Gustavian style
  • All rooms have flatscreen TVs, Wifi, bathrobes, coffee & tea, minibar, bathroom products, room service plus concierge
  • There is one disabled access room on the ground floor, but much of the hotel is not ideal for getting around in a wheelchair
  • Brasserie Makalös is a beautiful light filled space serving excellent French dishes and a bar serving equally delicious cocktails!
  • There’s also a great gym for your pre-cocktail workout
