Nordic Light Hotel Stockholm

Stockholm, Sweden

At Nordic Light Hotel, the lighting creates unique experiences. The hotel is a member of Design Hotels and enjoys a fantastic location in Stockholm city – just 40 metres from the Arlanda Express train and a short walk away from Stockholm Central Station.

The hotel lobby provides an atmosphere that is constantly changing. This is where you check in, have a drink at the bar or choose a delicious meal from the restaurant menu. The Lounge also undergoes a transformation several times a year, with new exhibitions featuring the creations of various designers.

In the Mood Rooms you can unwind, surrounded by the many shades of Nordic light. At the touch of a button on the room’s light bed you can create your own lighting to match your mood. Experiment with colour, rhythm and intensity. Try refreshing green, soothing blue or invigorating red.

Nordic Light Hotel in the heart of the city has rooms for all your senses. All 175 hotel rooms feature the same carefully thought-out design – top quality beds from Hästens, maximum soundproofing and free wireless internet. When you head off to discover Stockholm you’ll find the business district, shopping areas and entertainment all within walking distance of the hotel.

Nordic Light Hotel has become a natural arena in Stockholm for several design events. The hotel’s concept is based on creating a changing environment and inspiring experiences for an audience with an interest in design. The lobby features several different guest installations over the course of a year, where established designers as well as new arrivals on the design scene work closely with the hotel’s own design team.

Nordic Light Hotel has welcomed many distinguished guests over the years, including top international names such as Patricia Urquiola and design companies such as Bisazza and Iittala. The Swedish design scene has enjoyed an explicit position at the hotel, with exhibitions by Monica Förster, Bea Szenfeld, design group Front and many others.

Lighting design

The lighting at Nordic Light Hotel is a meticulously designed combination of artificial and natural light. The atmospheric lighting experience is noticeable as soon as you step into the lobby and the experience continues into the hotel room itself, where guests can create their own lighting.

Nordic Light Hotel has been a member of Design Hotels from its very beginnings. The hotel’s designers Jan Söder and Lars Pihl were inspired by an element that is strongly associated with Scandinavia – light.

The Nordic light is known for its particular characteristics, the mystic northern lights, the dark winters and the midnight sun.

The shifting Nordic light is reflected in the hotel lobby in hundreds of light sources that vary in colour and intensity. In 2002, Nordic Light Hotel won the European Light Trophy in the indoor lighting category.

The Mood Rooms allow hotel guests to get involved in designing their own lighting. You can experiment with colour, rhythm and intensity with just a few simple touches of a button in the room’s light bed. Try refreshing green, soothing blue or invigorating red to create your own personal lighting and atmosphere.

During the darker months, light therapy treatments are available in the hotel’s spa section. Choose an infrared treatment to improve blood circulation, or simulate daylight to give yourself an energy boost.
