Photo assignments, Documentation, Client : First Hotel Reisen
First Hotel Reisen is a waterfront hotel convenient placed in central Stockholm, in the heart of the Old Town. We are a first class hotel just around the corner from The Royal Palace and a five minutes’ walk from Stockholm’s main shopping area. First Hotel Reisen is celebrated for the high service standards, waterfront location and the hotel's décor, an impressive unity of classical maritime features and modern design.
The building, which today is First Hotel Reisen, was built around 1760 and is made up of two buildings. It was was used for loading and storing various products before they were shipped away.
In 1819 the building was taken over and Hotel Reisen was created. In 1930 the facade was given its current look by the architect Curt Björklund. The facade is decorated with small sculptures by Gustaf Sandberg.
The windows were created in a typical arched style. In the 1960's when the hotel was developed along the alleys, mirror shutters were placed in front of every window to allow for more lights in the rooms as well as a better view for the guests. The walls are curved as the facades of those days followed the alleys.
Many of our delightful rooms offer an amazing sea view of the Stockholm waterways and Skeppsholmen across the water. The rooms have a charming style and some of the rooms even have a view of the alleys and rooftops of renaissance-Stockholm in the Old Town.
