Ett Hem can be found located in Stockholm. This is actually a tough review to write - as there are so many special elements to share. This is a hotel with character, style and luxury in abundance. Once a former office block, the building itself has a wealth of character; and that's even before you enter the building - it has the presence of, perhaps, an old Victorian school.

As we ring the buzzer and stand waiting for the large gate to open, we are greeted by two smiling members of staff waiting to take our luggage. They lead us into the house, through to reception, where a warm genuine welcome was gladly received.

We were shown to our suite on the first floor. Moments like this are rare, but are exactly how one should feel walking into their room - excited and ready to explore. The attention to detail is just outstanding.

“We would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a truly luxury stay in Stockholm.”

Our suite was spacious, with a large separate bathroom, and a further separate restroom with the most stylish wooden toilet I've ever seen. A separate bath and drench style shower are also on offer. Everything about this room is just stunning and immaculate.

The rest of the hotel is made to feel very relaxed, for example, the lobby area has sofas and arm chairs with lots of interesting books scattered around, as well as a grand piano. It's almost like being in someone's home. They have really created a special place here where one can relax for the afternoon.

The hotel doesn't have a restaurant as such but what they do have is a chef and kitchen which is designed to be completely bespoke for each guest. The menu also changes every day, or with what's currently in season - rather than having the same menu throughout the year. Guests can say how hungry they are, what they like, or would rather not like to eat, and a creation will be prepared. The absolute selling point is the fact that this really does taste like home made food, which is often missed when dining in a hotel. The presentation did not disappoint, and the food was just bursting with fresh flavours.

During our stay, we sampled the Arctic Char tartare, the chanterelle with spring onion, and the beans with hazlenut vinaigrette to start - paired with a 2012 Dr. Bürklin-Wolf, Wachenheimer Riesling, Pfalz.

Four our main courses, we were served the sirloin steak with bordelaise sauce, which was shared from a large sharing bowl. This came paired with a M. Chapoutier, Châteauneuf-du-Pape "Croix de Bois".

Finally for dessert, we enjoyed the strawberry sorbet with raspberries and whipped cream, which was paired with strawberry and raspberry schnapps.

If you're staying here then this really is well worth the experience. The hotel also has a gym and relaxation areas, a beautiful garden with tables, chairs and blankets for guests wishing to relax outside. We decided to have breakfast outside - although freezing, it was very nice with a candle lit table and large parasol.

We would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a truly luxury stay in Stockholm.
