The Steam Hotel is the sequel to a story that began long ago, in the days when large parts of Sweden was powered by energy from a steam power plant at Lake Mälaren. But over time, as society develops and needs changed, all that remained in Västerås was a beautiful old brick building with its machines, boilers and pipes reminiscent of a bygone era. Until now, when the visionaries behind Falkenberg Strandbad, Ystad Saltsjöbad, Hotel Pigalle Hotel Bellora poured their combined effort into the old steam power plant once again to become one of the country’s main energy suppliers. Now at your service.
The 18-storey landmark has that raw feeling which only an industrial building can give, and you can really feel the history engrained in the walls. The 227 hotel rooms have a nice industrial-romantic style in which raw materials such as stone, metal and concrete are softened by wood, glass and textiles. Floor number seven is specifically set aside to renew energy and strength. There is a large steam-spa, indoor pool, orangeri and roof terrace with an outdoor pool. Two restaurants serving extraordinary culinary and visual experiences with exciting flavours of local produce in environments that are a delight to the eye – all with an atmosphere that delights the soul. We have taken advantage of and recycled as much as possible and used our creativity to find new functions for old boilers and instruments.
At a comfortable distance to Stockholm’s high pulse tempo, in a unique and historic setting framed by panoramic views of the lake will make a visit to The Steam Hotel a truly unforgettable experience.
