Hotel Skeppsholmen

Hotel Skeppsholmen, located on a charming island in the heart of Stockholm, boasts the Swedish capital’s contemporary art museum as next-door neighbor.

The tiny island of Skeppsholmen is a peaceful oasis just across a bridge from bustling downtown Stockholm. Once home to a naval base, the island now hosts two Stockholm institutions: Moderna Museet, the city’s museum for contemporary and modern art, and Hotel Skeppsholmen.

With a building dating from 1699—formerly barracks for the Swedish navy—and interiors designed by Stockholm architecture firm Claesson Koivisto Rune, Hotel Skeppsholmen is a master class in the fusion of old and new. Just a 10-minute walk from central Stockholm, the hotel is also easily reached by boat, bus or car.
