The urban hotel escape
I packed my suitcase, walked four blocks and checked in at this former warehouse designed by
architect Sigurd Lewerentz in 1930, now a stylish hotel, located on Gävlegatan 18 in the gallery
district of Stockholm. The Bauhaus-inspired building full of small square windows looking out
towards the large courtyard, is impressive. The music from the outside speakers is welcoming
and I can see myself sitting here eating a meal served from the food truck on a summer evening.
The spacious studio room on the 9th floor was my home for three nights. It is equipped with a
kitchenette and bed and dining area. The windows have a deep sill where I ended up watching
the sun set behind the new landmark building Norra Tornen. The rooftop bar on the 11th floor
is a perfect place for both after work and post dinner cocktails soaking in the endless city view.
