Brunkebergstorg, Stockholm. A 19th century haven for socialites. And that’s where it all begins. A rebirth. A reimagining. A hotel to be seen. En vogue elegance in a new home. Where contemporary art meets design. Where dining revels in breathtaking views. Where sleep is nurtured by comfort. Where spacious comes as standard. Where detail intrigues with a twist. Where surprise is no surprise.
The place, At Six. Sleep. Dine. Mingle. Surprise.
The first thing that comes to our attention is the amazing feeling of details. The hotel creates an atmosphere that embodies your senses and innovates your mind. It gives you a sensation to experience design, art and food in one and you can feel the touch of Petter Stordalen in many aspects of this hotel. This is a newly opened design and luxury hotel by Nordic Choice Group.
We stayed at a junior suite for one night and tried to maximize all facilities. The only location we could not use was the gym that was still under construction.
The junior suite on the highest floor was superb. Although the room felt more like a large executive room than a junior suite did not matter. The room had a fantastic view over Stockholm and the city hall from a fantastic balcony that stretches all over the room.
The details in the interior design was superb. Everything from the bed to selected furnitures such as the green marble working desk to the bathroom articles was done with precision and finesse. We loved the details that even the copper floor drain had the logo of the hotel.
In the room the minibar selection is not the standard wine and alcohol. It is local produced juices, sodas and other beverages. It also offers a full bar function with a shaker, high end crystal glasses, martini glasses and snacks. I love the fact that they also had “Happy Socks” and “Bed and Boxers” products you could purchase in room.
Breakfast was fantastic with a great selection of the classics and more modern and fresh complements such as freshly made ginger/apple juice. A remark is that coffee that is not standard brewery costs extra, that is something I would expect in a high end hotel. If I would like to have a Cappuccino or a Latte then I think an high end hotel like At Six should offer it complementary (if you compare with other 5 star or similar hotels around the world).
The hotel offers three evening restaurants; TAK, Dining Room and Blanche & Hierta. TAK is a fantastic Swedish and Japanese fusion restaurant on top of the hotel with an amazing 1000 sqm terrace. The amazing Chef Frida Ronge is a dynamic and creative chef that amazes us with great satisfaction.
The Dining Room offers an all-day dining experience and the food is superb. The Chef is Andreas Askling and provides food that looks like art and taste divine in your palate. One critique is that they charge you for stilled water and did not mention it was bottled. In my belief is that when the water is as fantastic as it is in the Nordics, people will expect it to be complementary and not charged, especially when the service is not mentioning the fact.
Blanche & Hierta was not fully functioned and could not offer more than a wine bar at the moment.
The staff at this hotel is very service minded. They offer you guided tours and display and information about the art and design in this hotel. The restaurant is fantastic and the in room service offers great service that you would expect in this kind of hotel. You never feel that you are asking too much when it comes to service or demands which is a great sign.
We could not use the gym however the staff offered to try their next door hotel gym instead until the gym finished its construction. We skipped this part however one very nice feature is that the hotel have a “no clothes, no excuse” policy. This is the first hotel that I have visited were they offer high end training clothes from J.Lindeberg, for free, to train if you happen to forget your training gear.
We enjoyed this hotel in many aspects and I must say that the rooms are fantastic. We loved the service and the detailed design in this facility and would definitely recommend this to our network.
Final Grade: 4,5 out of 5
