We not only want to be at the forefront when it comes to service, we also cherish our history very dearly - The King’s Garden is a modern hotel with Gustavian architecture. The building dates goes back to the early 18th century, and the hotel’s nooks and crannies and rooms, contain carefully preserved woodwork and details from a past era.
The original building was constructed for Countess Eva Bielke, and was completed in 1764. The building was built from stone, at that time an innovative material. The countess herself didn’t live there; instead it was rented out. The first and only known tenant was Christina Brahe, widow of Erik Brahe.
Count Carl Gustaf Piper bought the entire property in 1769, and it stayed in the hands of his family until 1976. Two more floors and two large staircases were added during that time - and the renovation was carried out so elegantly that the popular Swedish magazine Svenska Hem did a major story about it.
The hotel’s owner bought the property in 2010 and started a slow and painstaking process of renovation that lasted for over four years. The hotel opened on 12 January 2015, and to make the historic atrium something quite extraordinary it was adorned with one of Europe’s largest chandeliers.
