Owned by ABBA frontman Benny Andersson, the Rival is cool, but never to the point of being cold. Rooms here are full of delightful ideas—such as the bathroom's glass wall that lets you watch TV from the tub—and are stylish but still comfortable.

Explore the common spaces and you'll find a very cool bar, a lively restaurant, a bakery, and a restored movie theater.
