THIS IS THE RIVAL HOTEL IN STOCKHOLM


 

History

In 1937, the cinema Rival was inaugurated at Maria Square. The building early on became an establishment for entertainment with a cinema, hotel, restaurant, bakery and flats. The theatre has a historical value that is underscored by the roomy entrance halls on three floors and wide staircases with elegant railings.

Re-construction and extension, 2002-2003

A major consideration during the remodeling was to ensure that the various activities of the building would touch upon each other in a harmonious way.  To be able to move between bars, bistro, entrance hall and lounge was of the utmost importance. The attic was decorated and provided room for The Rival Hotel's suites. An extension toward the courtyard resulted in 15 new hotel rooms with balconies or French balconies. One of the biggest changes was the addition of glass elevators. From the top 2 floors (of a total of 7), there is a magnificent view of the rooftops and the church of Mary Magdalene. Interior designer Karin Ahlgren and architect Anders Bergkrantz had the principal responsibility for the re-construction and extensions made during 2003.


Rival is wholly owned by Benny Andersson Produktion AB.
