  • Midsummer night’s dream

    Hotel “J” is situated on Nacka beach and enjoys an enchanting view of Stockholm’s harbour inlet, where ships bob up and down on the water. The boutique hotel with its boathouse charm lies just ten minutes away from the colourful and lively activity of the Swedish capital. With its comfortable furnishings in the American East-Coast style, the “J” nevertheless communicates a holiday rather than a city atmosphere. Bright, maritime rooms with lots of wood and the adjacent harbour give the hotel the flair of a classical country dwelling. Warm red and rich blue dominate and highlight the comfortable cottage feel.

    Every detail of the 158 hotel rooms is characterised by a flair for materials and quality, and this is also true of the bathrooms. They feature the classic washbasins and toilets from Duravit’s 1930 Series. The bathroom range was inspired by a model that enjoyed great popularity in the thirties. The name of the series refers to the Bauhaus period. The affinity with mathematical and architectural elements is reflected in the octagonal forms of the sanitary series.

    The unusual name of the Hotel “J” is also derived from this period. “J” is a sailing term and is a rating for large keel yachts. These sailing yachts were particularly used in regattas between 1930 and 1937 during the famous “America’s Cup”.
    Hotel “J” is a member of the “Design Hotels" group and boasts the “Nordic swan”, the official Nordic ecolabel.
