In March two new cool hotels opened in Stockholm, right next to each other. They’re called At Six and Hobo and are now ready to take your booking.
Brunkebergstorg has been described as the ugliest place in Stockholm by locals for years. What once upon a time (1800s to be specific) was a vibrant square with gorgeous buildings, has for the last decades been a boring, dead place. It all happened when the city of Stockholm decided to demolish many buildings during what’s known as the Norrmalm regulation.
AMF Fastigheter is one of Sweden’s largest property companies, and they are also the ones in charge for “Urban Escape Stockholm”, the project to make Brunkebergs torg great again. Two of the first things to open on the new and improved Brunkebergstorg are the two new hip hotels of the city: At Six and Hobo. When the hotels opened in late March people flocked at the square to see the new hotels; design hotel At Six, with it’s luxurious touch, and Hobo, the hipsterish boutique hotel. Even though they are different in so many ways (which you’ll notice if you visit them both), they are sister hotels as they have the same owner. All you have to do is decide which style of hotels you like best – the creative and bohemian or elegant and luxurious?!
PS. If you decide to visit, don’t miss At Six’s rooftop restaurant Tak Stockholm, where you’ll receive this view of Stockholm. Not too bad.
