The two grand 19th century buildings housing the 201-room Nobis Hotel in Stockholm were originally built and used as residential apartments. “It’s always been a fascinating place in Stockholm,” says owner Sandro Catenacci, of Norrmalmstorg Square, the most valuable real estate in the Swedish version of the Monopoly board game within walking distance of the city’s best shopping and sightseeing.
The hotel’s interiors ooze history, yet they still have the crisp look typical of the renowned Swedish architectural firm Claesson Koivisto Rune, whose understated, yet always luxurious Scandinavian aesthetic shines through. A cathedral-like lounge with 25-meter ceilings is situated in a vast 800-square-meter public space.
The smaller Gold Bar sumptuously exemplifies its name with walls and ceilings covered with golden mirrors. Several restaurants include the new version of Stockholm’s legendary Italian restaurant Caina, which now serves a menu of simple and delectable Italian cuisine by award-winning chef, and the owner’s brother, Stefano Catenacci. Service is always personal; guestrooms were designed to feel like rooms in an elegant home, put together over time and not merely assembled. Tying it all together is a sense of individuality and a uniquely Swedish brand of luxury that’s far less about show than it is about feel. “We feel strongly in Sweden that luxury is not always big spaces and the most expensive things,” says Sandro Catenacci. “It’s a quality that feels different.”
Housed in two strikingly refurbished historical buildings on Stockholm’s finest square, Nobis Hotel combines tradition with a contemporary Scandinavian aesthetic. The result is an understated luxury that welcomes visitors and locals alike.
The Nobis Hotel, has a central location in the throbbing heart of Stockholm, with the best restaurants, shops, museums, sights, attractions and nightclubs the city has to offer within easy reach. Located on Norrmalmstorg Square, Nobis Hotel is one of the most central and attractive spots in downtown Stockholm. The hotel is located about 45 minutes by car from Stockholm – Arlanda International Airport.
