The Stockholm Hotel Skeppsholmen has been named among the coolest new hotels on the annual hotlist published by leading US travel magazine Condé Naste Traveller.

The Stockholm city centre establishment features as one of 66 hotels on a list spanning 31 countries.

"The Swedes have a knack for making wooden floors and off-white walls feel like the height of luxury. However, the Hotel Skeppsholmen, which is housed in two 17th-century buildings on an island in the heart of the city, is more than just another exercise in Nordic minimalism," the magazine wrote in explanation of why the hotel was selected.

The hotel opened in October in a building from 1699 after a design by Claesson Koivisto Rune. It is situated on the waterfront at the heart of Stockholm inner-city harbour over-looking the Old Town and the scenic park of Djurgården.

"We're very proud to be featured on the prestigious Condé Nast Traveller's Hot List 2010 with 66 fab hotels across the globe... The only Scandinavian hotel to make it onto the list," said CEO Joachim Olausson in a statement on the hotel's website.
