Brasserie Makalös / Stockholm

Västra Trädgårdsgatan 11 B Stockholm 111 53
Description

Makalös was the colloquial name for the grand mansion, or palace, of the Swedish noble family De la Gardie. Situated at Norrström, south of Kungsträdgården in Stockholm and vis-à-vis the Royal Palace, the building was completed in 1653 and demolished in 1825 after a fire.ConstructionConstruction of the mansion was begun in the 1630s on a piece of land owned by Jakob De la Gardie. De la Gardie tasked Hans Jacob Kristler with the construction. The five-floor building was built of brick and stone with a copper roof. The living quarters were situated in the ground floor, the festivities hall on the second (piano nobile), dancing and music rooms on the third, and stores and armoury on the fourth and fifth floors. The cellar comprised larders, while housekeeping facilities, stables and gardens were situated outside the main building. Four towers marked the corners of a facade richly decorated with stone masonry and adorned with bay windows and column-supported loggias in Italian style. The interior was equally splendid, with stucco decorations, picturesque plafonds, tapestries, decorative masonry, and galleries of paintings.

The room was lovely decorated in Gustavian style, but tiny. Good breakfast. Friendly service. Stunning green (plant) wall in the restaurant. Nice location near King's Garden. GooglePlace - September 2017

Small but bijou? Very central and clean, hotel rooms were however very small but well equipped. A couple would have issues with space staying there for more than a long week end. Staff cared and breakfast was decent. Recommend GooglePlace - July 2017
