We spent our next two nights in Stockholm at Miss Clara, a stylish hotel renovated from a former private girls school originally built in 1900. Named after the headmistress, the building received a full makeover by Swedish architect Gert Wingardh, who kept the original art nouveau structure intact and filled its interior with modern furnishings, lighting, and artwork. The result is beautiful, as you will soon see from the photos below. Location-wise, the hotel is within a 10-minute walking distance from the central train station, and 20-some minutes to sights like Gamla Stan (old town) and Skeppsholmen (museum island) – not much to complain about.

One of my favorite space within the building is the dining room: vaulted windows, leather banquettes, Lee Broom crystal bulbs…just gorgeous.

Next door is The Ballerina Room, which features Max Modén’s ballerina portraits and Kaare Klint chairs.

To the rooms. Miss Clara has 92 rooms, all designed and furnished in a serene, minimal Scandinavian approach. Room sizes range from “Small Single” (15-17 m²) to “Etage Suite” (46-51 m²), and and the 23-30 m² “Deluxe Room” (3,190 SEK/night) we stayed at is spacious with high ceilings, great natural lighting, and comfort in every corner. I especially liked the wall-to-wall window sitting area, though the ultra-soft bed lined with Egyptian bed sheets was hard to resist as well. The room includes a 37 inch LED-TVs with built-in entertainment system, free wi-fi (though this was spotty for our room), chaise lounge, minibar, safe, and 24-hour concierge and room service.

Here’s our view through the huge vaulted windows. Our room was on the 1st floor and street noise was quite audible – this didn’t bother us much as we were exhausted from the day and fell asleep immediately, but if you are a light sleeper you might consider staying in the upper floors.

This setup is perfect for breakfast in bed…

The bathroom is separated by a glass wall with a very sheer curtain (read: you better be very comfortable with seeing/being seen by the person you share the room with). Deluxe rooms have spacious bathrooms with a huge bathtub and separate shower. Soft bathrobes, slippers, and Orla Kiely toiletries are also provided.

A gym and a sauna, for those who are interested.

Breakfast (169 SEK/person, not included in the room-rate), is a nice spread of freshly baked breads with gluten-free options, homemade granola, homemade jams, sausages made on a farm ​​in Halland with the hotel’s own recipe, eggs cooked specifically at 7 and 10 minutes, and a free flow of coffee, tea, and juices. All in the beautiful dining room as you have already seen in previous photos.

Miss Clara has it all – convenient location, beautiful design, friendly service, and ultra comfortable rooms. The only two small complaints I have as mentioned above are the spotty internet in our room (not a problem in the lobby or dining room) and the street noise coming in through the window as we were staying in a lower level room. Despite these two small hiccups, I really enjoyed the experience at Miss Clara and won’t hesitate to stay here again. Highly recommended.
