Architecture Erséus Arkitekter

Housed in two historical barracks from 1699, known by locals as the long row, the hotel maintains its Swedish heritage...

with traditional materials, such as soaped wood and linseed oil-based paint on the timber. Celebrated and award-winning designer and architect trio Claesson Koivisto Rune—who were the first Swedish architects ever to be exhibited in the international section of the Venice Architecture Biennale (2004)—were responsible for the sensitive restoration.

The design team fittingly chose “fog” as the artistic theme, evoking the mist of the enchanting maritime surroundings.

The soft color scheme and peaceful atmosphere come together to create an eco-certified urban oasis. That same sense of ethereal grace also holds forth in the hotel’s more ornate and engaging public spaces.

“You can’t standardize feeling, and this is also what we are selling in a restaurant, bar, or hotel.”

History A taste of the old

The two long buildings that make up the hotel were built in 1699 to house Sweden’s Royal Marines of Karl XII.

Thanks to the lean financial times back then, most of the building material came from ruined castles on the countryside. The buildings, however, were never used for the soldiers as intended, as most of them never made it home from the wars. In 1935, the structures became listed historic buildings; the architect Nicodemus Tessin Jr. is most famous for the design of the Royal Castle.

Sustainability Keeping an eye on our Conscious Hotel Principles

“For us, sustainability means minimizing our environmental impact and developing a healthy working environment while giving our guests a special experience at the same time.”

The kitchen has installed KITRO technology to measure and attempt to reduce food waste. The team separates and recycles waste and compost food waste.

Icon Energy (1)


Hotel Skeppsholmen uses only renewable electricity.
