Stockholm is one beautiful,  sophisticated city. From fashion, to music, to design to gastronomy – you can expect a somewhat upgraded vacation experience when you visit the Swedish capital at any time of year. From upscale, high-fashion at the Swedish design boutiques of Bibiliotekstan, to the sparkly silver throne of the lesbian queen Christina at the Royal Palace, to rubbing shoulders with the city’s gorgeous women at queer night-out, Moxy, a trip to Stockholm is far more chic than anywhere else in Europe. 


Plus, the city has some stunning 4 and 5 star properties that will please the most discerning of travelers. Here are six of our favorites, but there are plenty more hotels, restaurants, and attractions that are passionate about welcome lesbian and bi women travelers. Check them out at



We love the Hotel Diplomat, a gorgeous luxury hotel overlooking the waterfront on one of Stockholm’s most chic streets. Check out their deli and the iconic Svenskt Tend design showroom on the same street. 



If Greta Garbo were still alive, she’d definitely hang out at the Haymarket, an iconic art-deco department store turned hotel. But it wouldn’t be a coincidence in fact, as Ms. Garbo once worked the hat counter there. The bar here is fabulous for cocktails before heading out on the town. 



Chic by name and nature, checking in to At Six, you’ll be greeted by a giant Jaume Plensa sculpture. In room, you’ll experience sophisticated Swedish design – minimalist, but gorgeous at the same time. Right next door is a sophisticated Swedish-Japanese restaurant TAK, that comes complete with a gorgeous rooftop terrace. 



The  Hellsten just bursts in personality, reflecting the owner’s personality, a global traveller and member of the jet-set. It’s bold, masculine and joins the old and new and is a great place to stay when visiting the city. 



This gorgeous, chic hotel is the favourite of fashionistas – with the upscale Bibliotekstan shopping district just next door. The Nobis is set in an imposing old building which brings the charm of the golden age of the city, but is brought completely up to date indoors with stunning interior design.  



You’ll just love the ABBA Gold suite of the POP HOUSE Hotel and you too can be a worldwide music superstar or a renowned record producer for a night or two. ABBA fans take note, this hotel is in the same complex of ABBA the Museum, so Dancing Queens and Super Troupers rejoice!
