ETT HEM, STOCKHOLM
Ett Hem means ‘a home’. That’s important, because this wonderfully intimate hotel is the Swedish home you’ve always dreamed of creating. The homely familiarity is forged on the feet that this was once a private residence, resting in the exclusive, ambassadorial enclave of Ostermalm – a half-hour stroll through tree-lined streets to the central Old Town.
Not that you ever need leave this luxury mansion – grab a book from the library and escape to the tree-filled garden courtyard or take up residence in the drawing room, replete with grand piano and honesty bar. Or embrace the exquisite kitchen ‘menu’ – an ever-evolving slate of dishes, decided on each morning using locally sourced ingredients – when and where you like.
