Victory Hotel, Stockholm

If you’re a traveller who collects treasured destinations, The Victory is definitely one for your album. In fact, it might prove to be the pride of your collection.

Walk into The Victory from the gracious streets of Stockholm’s famous Old Town, and you’ll be immediately surrounded by maritime artefacts from Nelson’s era. Genuine antiques abound – from figureheads and snuffboxes depicting naval scenes to examples of scrimshaw and an actual original letter written from Admiral Lord Nelson to his famous mistress Lady Hamilton.

So the Victory is a treasure house. Quite literally, actually; a huge hoard of 18,000 silver coins and objets d’art were unearthed in what is now the bistro. And the hotel is also rich in tradition – part of the city’s fortified wall can be seen in the restaurant and the original building dates back to 1640. Today, of course, you’ll experience the best of modern luxuries in this unique ‘collectors’ hotel.
