Miss Clara, Stockholm

Miss Clara Hotel Stockholm Review — Design Hotels — Softer Volumes-4

First built in 1910 as one of Sweden’s largest girls’ schools, Miss Clara hotel is one of the city’s most visually impressive examples of Art Nouveau. Inside, it’s a celebration of the building’s past (even the name is a reference to onetime headmistress Clara Strömberg), while having all the modern luxuries you’d expect from one of Stockholm’s finest accommodation options.

Walk inside and you’ll find the atmosphere is warm and inviting, the staff are friendly and accommodating, and the design, thanks to Swedish architect Gert Wingårdh and his team, is a clever blend of understated luxury and comfort. In the rooms, white walls contrast dark herringbone floors, black metal lamps adorn the walls, and large arched windows flood each space with natural light. Upon entering the bathroom, you’ll be greeted with a sleek fit-out constructed from Swedish limestone, and Sweden’s Byredo as the amenity brand of choice.

Venturing out of the room, head downstairs for a drink, or next door to Giro Pizzeria—launched as a collaboration between the hotel group and one of the world’s oldest pizzerias, da Michele. The atmosphere and menu will make you feel as though you’ve been transported to a local joint in Naples. In the morning, head to the street-level restaurant for a buffet breakfast. With leather oxblood banquettes, low-lying glass Lee Broom pendant lamps and plant-filled windows, this is a cosy spot ideal for watching the rest of the city go by.
