Hotel Info

Overview

The Rivaln Hotel is a boutique hotel located in Sodermalm in the heart of Stockholm. The hotel is shaped by the vision of its owner, Benny Andersson (of Abba) who wanted to recapture the glamour of the hotel in the 1930s. The hotel has its own Rival Cinema, bars, a bistro, cafe and a bakery. Classic Swedish dishes are served in the hotel daily, while guests can enjoy a hearty buffet breakfast in the morning. All of the bedrooms are decorated in a functional and contemporary style and come with a private bathroom. The Rival Hotel is the perfect base for exploring nearby Mariatorget square and the rest of the city.

Review of 'RIVAL'

This is an excellent hotel. It's located in quite a trendy area near several art galleries yet only ten minutes walk from the more touristy Gamla Stan. The room was very well designed (although relatively small). Breakfast was excellent (huge choice of cooked beakfast, fruit, several types of bread and pastries, pancakes, cold meats etc etc. There is also an excellent bakery and cafe on site, altough be prepared for the cafe to be quite crowded with local people (surely a good sign). All in all a very modern but welcoming hotel.
