Housed in two historical buildings on Norrmalmstorg Square, the Nobis Hotel is situated in the heart of Stockholm within easy walking distance of several local sights, restaurants and shops. In contrast to the historic facade, the interior is decorated in a contemporary luxurious Scandinavian aesthetic.

Nobis Hotel is part of the Design Hotels handpicked portfolio. The eco-friendly hotel’s sustainability programme has been recognised by the prestigious environmental award, Nordic Ecolabel.

An unmissable piece of architecture? A visit to the Stadsbiblioteket. Completed in 1928, the city library is a wonderful example of Gunnar Asplund’s successful merging of classicism and modernism. When standing in the middle of the rotunda you have the feeling there is no other library on the planet just 
like this.

What’s on at the theatre? The classic Swan Lake comes to town at the Opera House.

A new high-end restaurant? At Omakase Köttslöjd you will be one of only 15 diners, per night, who will enjoy Scandinavian cuisine with a Japanese touch. The chef will decide on the meal. However, after sampling 15 exceptional courses you will be glad you left it in their hands. 

Any events we shouldn’t miss? For years running the Summerburst electronic music festival has headlined top artists such as Avicii, David Guetta and Swedish House Mafia.

Local music you should definitely listen to? Where? Head over to Glenn Miller Café for an evening of great jazz and drinks. If you are looking for something a bit more wild, take a taxi ride over to Mosebacke for concerts, stand-up, 
theatre or even a burlesque show. 

Any markets you should visit? If you are looking for a taste of Swedish cuisine, then Östermalms Saluhall is the place to be. Fresh produce, meats and even a lunch at famous Lisa Elmqvist will certainly hit the spot. 

What’s the best locale for shopping for authentic local products? SOFO (South of Folkgungagatan) is the answer to all of your local shopping needs. Boutique shopping, local artists and great dining options give this neighbour-hood its cool and hip factor. 

A great spot for a business meeting? The lounge in Nobis Hotel is a wonderful place that is spacious, centrally located and has a casual setting. If you stay long enough, have a few drinks with Stockholm’s elite.

The best contemporary art gallery in the city? Located on the island of Skeppsholmen, Moderna Museet showcases the best of Stockholm’s contemporary works. Don’t miss out on Olafur Eliasson’s exhibition, titled Reality Machines (on until January 17 2016).

You can’t come to Stockholm without seeing? Gamla Stan. Founded in the 13th century, this island is where the city began. And be sure to visit the Royal Palace. nobishotel.com
