Art Nouveau elegance in the heart of Stockholm

Miss Clara 92-room hotel is housed in the former Ateneum girls’ school building, erected in 1910 and is located at Sveavägen 48, one of the most bustling urban addresses in Sweden. Designed by architects Hagström & Ekman it is considered one of Stockholm’s most exquisite Art Nouveau edifices.

Art Nouveau elegance in the heart of Stockholm

The old girls’ school has been transformed into an elegant and comfortable hotel under the leadership of star architect Gert Wingårdh. Sveavägen is Stockholm’s most cosmopolitan boulevard, cutting straight through the heart of the city from north to south. This part of Sveavägen, north of Kungsgatan Avenue, is one of the most expansive focal points in the evolution of a new and more dynamically attractive Stockholm City district. Within a distance of five hundred meters from the hotel, there are thousands of workplaces and a vast array of options for entertainment, culture, and shopping. A perfect setting for modern travellers seeking comfort, quality and relaxation on their own terms in the midst of the urban pulse.

When designing Miss Clara, Wingårdh’s architects drew inspiration from the building’s original Art Nouveau architecture, distinguished by its soft and graceful organic lines and use of solid natural materials. Characteristic traits in the original architecture have been interpreted into new contemporary expressions. The interiors feature many specially designed and crafted furniture pieces and installations in solid, superior quality natural materials of predominantly Swedish origin, such as limestone, oak, bentwood, and natural leather.

The street level restaurant, seating 80 guests, serves a menu featuring updated Swedish and international brasserie classics. The bar adjoining the restaurant is a vibrant locus for hotel guests, Stockholmers and other visitors. The bar is seamlessly connected to the lounge and lobby. The interiors convey a feeling of genuine quality, distinguished by organic lines and solid Swedish materials such as limestone and natural leather.
