Les Clefs D'Or

In 1956, Sweden was the ninth section to join Les Clefs d’Or, however our own association Svenska Hotell Portier Föreningen (SHPF) was founded in 1926, making it the oldest Concierge association in the world. Our concierge members represent some of the best hotels in Sweden, predominately in Stockholm and Gothenburg.

Sweden is a beautiful destination year round, whether you are enjoying the Summer cruises in the Baltic, viewing the Northern Lights in Norrbotten, visiting one of the world’s best restaurants in Jämtland or just enjoying Swedish ‘mys’ (cosiness). Our concierge members and their hotels can really open up Sweden for you to enjoy.

In a country that is sometimes called cold and distant, our concierge offer you the opportunity to warm up instantly to curated ‘smultronställen’ (hidden favourite places) and experience Sweden like a local.

Please also visit our website Svenska Hotell Portier Föreningen to learn more about our association and don’t forget to follow our Instagram feed @SHPF for glimpses of what our beautiful country has to offer.

We look forward to meeting you in our lobbies.

In Service through Friendship,

Hotel Rival

Stockholm Sweden

Mariatorget 3 118 91 Stockholm Sweden

Besides the hotel itself, the Rival also houses a popular Café, Bistro, several bars, meeting and event facilities as well as a 700 seat theatre. The theatre was once a cinema (from 1937) called Rival, hence the name of the hotel. This cinematic theme is reflected in the interior design details of the Rival.

It is also conveniently close to subways, trains, ferries and buses that can transport you through the greater Stockholm area.
