If you are looking for gay friendly hotels in Stockholm, you will be spoilt for choice.
Stockholm prides itself on being ‘the Open City’. Inclusivity for everyone is deeply embedded in its culture.
As a result, you won’t find ‘exclusively’ gay hotels in Stockholm, but what you will find is that pretty much all hotels in Stockholm are 100% gay friendly – in fact the term gay friendly would probably confuse most of the hotels since it is the norm!
However, like always there are some hotels that stand out.
The following list of gay friendly hotels in Stockholm is a combination of those that we have personally stayed at, friends have stayed at or have been recommended by our friends at Stockholm LGBT.
Take a look below!
Top Gay Friendly Hotels in Stockholm
This is where we stayed on our visit and we loved it!
Owned by Benny from ABBA, this is a beautiful boutique hotel.
The hotel has an on-site café, bistro, several bars, and serves both a delicious buffet and a-la-carte breakfast.
We particularly loved the location, in the trendy Södermalm district, walking distance from most of the tourist attractions.
The rooms have clever little touches like a music button next to the bath to play ABBA and practical touches like USB ports either side of the bed!
Address: Hotel Rival, Mariatorget 3, 118 91 Stockholm, Sweden
Pop House Hotel
Just a few minutes outside of the city centre, Pop House is situated in the beautiful green area of Djurgården.
All 49 hotel rooms are individually and stylishly decorated, with a few even ABBA inspired and themed!
The on site bistro also serves some great meatballs which you must tick of your list when you visit!
Address: Hotel Pophouse, Djurgårdsvägen 68, 115 21 Stockholm, Sweden
This hotel is situated away from the busy centre, on the peaceful island of Skeppsholmen.
Dating back to 1699, the building has previously been a barracks and a hospital.
What we loved learning about this hotel was that there is a particular focus on sustainable tourism, with a lot of renovations been done using recycled material.
Address: Hotel Skeppsholmen, Gröna gången 1, 111 49 Stockholm, Sweden
Hellstens Glasshus is another luxury boutique hotel in the heart of Södermalm.
The unique hotel façade is 7 metres of glass, hence the name “Glasshus”.
There is also a beautiful onsite restaurant, serving the owners favourite dishes from all around the world.
Address: Hellstens Glasshus, Wollmar Yxkullsgatan 13, 118 50 Stockholm, Sweden
Hotel Diplomat Stockholm
Stockholm is a city made of multiple islands so if you are looking for a waterfront view check out this luxury hotel.
It is well located near to all the main sites, shops, city centre, bars and restaurants.
If you are looking for luxury in Stockholm, this is one to check out.
Address: Strandvägen 7C, 114 56 Stockholm, Sweden
If you are looking for somewhere with character then take a look at Villa Dagmar.
This is a boutique style hotel in the centre of Stockholm complete with on-site restaurant, private dining areas, a concept store, a flower shop, a spa and a fitness centre.
Address: Nybrogatan 25, 114 39 Stockholm, Sweden
If like us you like to be able to walk everywhere take a look at the 5* At Six located in the heart of Stockholm.
It has won awards for its design, its stylish rooms and rave reviews on their customer service.
In addition, you will find a restaurant and three bars; a wine bar, a cocktail bar and Scandinavia’s first slow-listening bar.
Address: Brunkebergstorg 6, 111 51 Stockholm, Sweden
This stylish hotel offers unique interior designs, a bar and a sauna (make a reservation).
Each room is individually decorated and merges both modern and traditional styles given that the building dates back to the 1800s.
There is free coffee and tea available at all times at Hellsten Hotel (which is great in winter!). The
Hellsten Earth Bar also hosts jazz concerts every Thursday.
