Expert reviews

Fodors review:

“Owned by ABBA frontman Benny Andersson, the Rival is cool, but never to the point of being cold. Rooms here are full of delightful ideas—such as the bathroom’s glass wall that lets you watch TV from the tub—and are stylish but still comfortable.”

Featured as Fodor’s Choice in Stockholm.

Lonely Planet review:

“Owned by ABBA’s Benny Andersson and overlooking leafy Mariatorget, this ravishing design hotel is a chic retro gem, complete with vintage 1940s movie theatre and art-deco cocktail bar.”
