WELCOME TO HELLSTENS MALMGÅRD
Hellsten´s Malmgård is located at Södermalm in the heart of Stockholm, one block from the metro station Zinkensdamm without any interference from busy streets. It is also within walking distance of the Old Town and many other attractions.
Södermalm is one of the most popular and most exciting parts of Stockholm, where the nightlife is at its best. Near the hotel you will find the beautiful park Tantolunden which invites to walks along the water line and the green surroundings which are characteristic to the area. Other features of the district are also the variety of trendy design shops, both for interiors and apparel. Södermalm has become one of the most popular places for restaurants and cafes, which makes Hotel Hellsten’s Malmgård an optimal place to stay for food lovers.
The breakfast is served on the veranda or in the garden during the summer season. When autumn arrives, the brick vaults in the basement serve as breakfast room.
Dating from the 18th Century, Hellstens Malmgård is one of 38 such urban manors remaining in the city, which were mostly used as summer residences for the city’s nobility. Originally built for the pharmacist Johan Michael Wirwach, who laid out extensive gardens stocked with medicinal herbs and plants, the house was eventually inherited by his widow, who set up silk-weaving mills in one of the wings. The subsequent history of the building saw it put to a wide variety of uses, including a boy’s borstal, workers’ housing, the office of a political party, and in modern times an office for the National Association of Swedish Architects.
The story from 1770 is in the walls. This has been strengthened and developed to the specific concepts that characterize many of Hellsten’s hotels. Strong colors on the rooms’ walls, furniture in typical Gustavian style, antiques from all corners of the world and articles from exciting places spiced with unexpected details. Unique original porcelain tile fireplaces, some of the brand Gustafsberg, remain in the building.
The building is formed around the cobblestoned yard, contributing to a cultural environment that is experienced with graceful shivers. There is also an old littleleaf linden tree in the yard, which was planted when the building was erected 250 years ago. All this contributes to the feeling that time and the centuries stand still.
