Hotel Rival (formerly the Abba star) is 4-star hotel that has been shaped and restored, by Benny Andersson & partners, into a 1930's Art Deco red velvet cinema. The result is a vivacious new assembly complex. Located in the stylishly bohemian district of Södermalm on the beautiful southern island of Stockholm, this magnificent hotel overlooks the remarkable tree lined Mariatorget Square.

Andersson and his partners have recalled the authentic charm of this hotel from the time when it originally opened in 1937 as the Aston hotel. This hotel structure features an Art Deco designed cocktail bar, café, bakery bistro, salon for 700 people and conference rooms. An attractive grand circular staircase leads the way to the vivacious hotel restaurant.

The Art Deco sense of the interior is a cheerful marriage between functionality and form. This hotel is hardly considered standard, with all of its unique details of Kasthall woven rugs, matte oak floors and lacquered orange walls. A number of rooms include orange ottomans, pink chairs, polka dot lampshades and red leather sofas.

Each guest room of Hotel Rival includes a flat screen TV, luxurious Egyptian cotton sheets, and is creatively fashioned with a scene from a classic Swedish film. Hotel Rival's comprehensive pillow menu features a selection of natural and man-made combinations; from buckwheat to goose down.
