Sophisticated design is apparent in the bathrooms
Stockholm is spread out over fourteen islands and a bit of the mainland. Scandinavia’s largest city is the centre of Northern Europe’s creative scene, which now has a new home in the Norrmalm district: the Hobo Hotel, which opened in March 2017. Probably the most private spaces in a hotel – the bathrooms – are beautifully equipped with quality taps and showers made by hansgrohe.
Hotel breathes new life into the district
The Hobo is located in the modern commercial district of Norrmalm, also known as Stockholm’s “City”. Although the hotel is very centrally situated between the main train station and the popular Kungsträdgården park, Brunkebergstorg, a street marked by 1970s’ architecture, had been somewhat forgotten in recent decades. The hotel, which belongs to the Nordic Hotels & Resorts group owned by Norwegian entrepreneur Petter Stordalen, breathes new life into the district – together with its neighbouring sister hotel At Six. The award-winning, Berlin-based industrial design office Studio Aisslinger was responsible for the hotel’s interiors.
