What it is
A 1910 Arts & Crafts home transformed into a 12-room, Wes Anderson-worthy respite, with a locavore restaurant, Swedish sauna and secret garden tucked in a courtyard.
What it isn't
Lazy bones. The 24/7 gym is stocked with a pilates reformer and Technogym equipment. Nearby: a Swedish sauna and even a slab of hot stone where you’re encouraged to unwind after a workout.
What we think
The design cognoscenti audibly gasped when Ett Hem opened its doors. Lovingly styled Nordic hotels are nothing new, but this one felt next-level: a fairytale travelers could step into for a truly transformative retreat. Even starter Double Rooms are dressed in Swedish staples: gleaming oak, fluffy sheepskin, and Gotland stone finishes. Upgrade to a suite for a four post bed, marble soaking tub and tiled stove that looks like it sprung from the pages of Hansel and Gretel. Throughout, ornate crown moldings, glitzy antique crystal chandeliers, and herringbone flooring provides a timelessly charming aesthetic. While you’re here, you’ll be treated like a long-lost friend by staffers—one reason guests book here year after year.
You're here because
It’s a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World (i.e., guaranteed to be fabulous). And the common living spaces include a library of well-thumbed tomes you want to curl up with.
Chefs here make their menu decisions the day-of, a tactic that ensures absolute seasonal delectibility. Your favorite part? The fact that the kitchen is open to you, as if you actually live here...late-night snacking encouraged.
