We love storied properties, which is why we loved Miss Clara, Stockholm. Set in an old girls school, the hotel is named after its old headmistress. It’s a gorgeous heritage building, brought completely up to date with stunning design touches that make it an amazing hotel option for OutThere travellers to the Swedish capital.
Stockholm isn’t short of beautiful architecture, but the Art Noveau building on Sveavägen that Miss Clara Stockholm is in is pretty special. Named after once headmistress Clara Strömberg, the property has been reimagined into a contemporary hotel with a lot of love for its original period features. Minimalism is the order throughout, but where there is furnishing, it’s the very best that money can buy, with curated, choice pieces like Kaare Klint chairs. We particularly liked the Le Broom crystal lamps on reception.
Miss Clara is a larger boutique property with around 90 rooms and suites. The hotel’s own brand of minimalism continues in-room, with its colour pallet earthy. We liked the pared-back design of our room. It was beautifully appointed, with huge church-like windows letting in lots of light and creating shadow play on the herringbone parquet floors.
The hotel takes great pride in its food and beverage offering. The menu here is contemporary, with Asian, American and Mediterranean flavours on offer, sometimes all together. We enjoyed evening cocktails and dinner in the property’s popular bar and restaurant, rubbing shoulders with the beautiful people of Stockholm. School has never been this fabulous.

|With its educational background, Miss Clara likes to import some of the best of the creative city that is Stockholm. From touring art exhibitions to on-the-brink of signing DJs and performers, there’s always something in the programming at Miss Clara to connect guests to the arts. If you’re looking for something a little grander, then the Stockholm Konserthus (Concert Hall) is just a short walk away.|
