Expert Reviews
Owned by former ABBA-member Benny Andersson, the boutique Hotel Rival is located in a residential neighborhood, overlooking a small park.
Time Out
Owned by Benny from Abba, the Rival was created by combining the best parts of the 1930s hotel that once stood here with high-tech comforts.
All is properly Swedish-modern, with pine-green, raspberry, or oatmeal floor-length velvet drapes, wood floors with thick rugs, pale birch, and the odd piece by Scand stars.
