Our favourite rooms
The Clock Suite is the biggest, with views over the park. Room 608 is spacious and light, with a terrace garden. Junior suites feature designer interiors. Room 431 served as a dressing room for Ella Fitzgerald and Marlene Dietrich.
Deck shoes, eye-mask in summer (only three hours of darkness), contemporary-furniture wish list, duty-free booze and smokes.
Berns, the hotel's nightclub, features music from both resident and visiting DJs. Stora Salongen, the concert hall, has been showcasing Swedish and international acts since 1863; recent visitors include M83, Hurts and White Lies.
Welcome, but when the bars and club get busy, it’s not the best family environment. Cots and extra beds for children are available free of charge.
