Fans of ultra-contemporary design and minimal aesthetics are sure to get their money’s worth on a trip to Stockholm, but if the Open City’s modern art galleries and sleek architecture don’t suffice, several hotels across town also convince with their stripped-back and quietly luxurious style – Blique by Nobis, a sister property of legendary Nobis, is a great example of this!
The hip hideaway located in one of the capital’s most up-and-coming neighbourhoods, Hagastaden, welcomes travellers from all walks of life, and embraces diversity 365 days a year. Accordingly, many an LGBTQ+ traveller likes to stay here when in town. Here’s what a stay at Blique by Nobis is like…
What’s the atmosphere like at Blique by Nobis?
No adjective describes the atmosphere here better than ‘buzzing’ does. Unlike more traditional places to stay, Blique by Nobis is all about community, and you can really feel this when locals arrive to head for the hotel’s event and meeting places, where everything from art exhibitions to private dinners can be hosted.
Staying here, guests very much feel ‘part of the city’ as they observe the daily goings-on in and around Blique by Nobis. But don’t worry – the stylish hideaway doesn’t feel hectic. Instead, there’s a sense of it simply being the place to be!
What are the rooms like?
Think muted and natural colours, statement lamps, large windows and black amenities against white walls and beige carpets. If you love interior design, Blique by Nobis is a poster child of minimal chic, which is soothing for the senses and provides a neutral environment should you need to get some work done during your stay.
That said, there are warm touches that add a sense of cosiness to each room category; from curtains to blankets, comfortable loungers and luxury toiletries by Swedish brand Byredo. Rooms also feature state-of-the-art tech like wall-mounted LCD screens and Marshall speakers. Simply connect via Bluetooth!
Other than the rooms, why stay here?
The hotel is home to Boketto, a popular restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and weekend brunch inspired by meals the team has had at street markets across the world. Burgers are an obvious favourite for many, but there are also more health-conscious options like vegetable soups and super food salads.
For a dining experience with a view, make your way to Blique by Nobis’ Arc Rooftop instead. The view from up there are just gorgeous, and an eclectic, pan-Asian menu means you get try everything from a Korean sharing menu to a Japanese omakase. And before you head back to your room, make sure to grab a cocktail from the bar!
Something every visitor should know
You wouldn’t be the first guest to fall in love with this stylish hotel and return for a longer stay. Fortunately, Blique by Nobis actually offers a variety of long-stay studios fully equipped with a kitchenette and yoga mats as well as juice blenders available from the reception on a complimentary basis. Talk about feeling at home while away!
There’s also an on-site gym that’s open around the clock, as well as a sauna for those cold Stockholm winter nights. In spite of its buzzing atmosphere and location in Stockholm’s next hip neighbourhood, Blique by Nobis still offers a place to relax, as well. It’d be difficult not to enjoy your time here!
