Tucked into the narrow, winding streets of Gamla Stan, the small island of Stockholm’s urban archipelago known as the “Old Town,” Victory Hotel is easy to miss. Its subtle stonework and humbleness is exactly what makes it easy to love—a positively Swedish culture that let’s its design and hospitality do all the talking for it. The hotel boasts a thorough nautical design, reflecting the history of Stockholm as a leading port for the continent centuries ago. Those looking to travel in style though know that the hotel is perfect for anyone looking to balance the history of the city with the modern amenities that make it so enviable to today’s trendsetters. To find out more about the hotel, DuJour caught up with the hotel’s Johanna Olsson.
