Creators Inn by Elvine, Stockholm. Now open.

On August 1th we opened the first hotel-in-hotel version of Creators Inn by Elvine at Hotel Scandic Malmen in Stockholm. Located in the heart of the SoFo area, this offers a stay in direct proximity to culture, shopping and within walking distance to some of Stockholm’s best live music venues, including Lilla Hotellbaren located on the ground floor of the hotel. Basically an ideal hub for any creator visiting the Swedish capital.

The room have been re-designed based on answers to the questions below:

  1. What are the most important needs of a traveling creator? How do they differ from “regular” guests?
  2. What would your ultimate room for creators look like? What kind functions, products and services would be provided for the visiting creators?

Answers which we kindly received from creators and previous guests through email, our Facebook discussion board, via Twitter and from people commenting here on the web page. The result is presented after the jump together with a floor plan, lots of pictures, descriptions and comments.

The world’s first hotel-in-hotel. Free of charge.

Creators Inn is yet again breaking new ground. This time by opening the world’s first hotel-in-hotel, offering free short-term accommodation for visiting creators. Partnering with the Scandic Malmen Hotel we are also proud to offer the first Creators Inn outside of Gothenburg. This time in the Royal Capital of Sweden, Stockholm.

About the Scandic Malmen hotel
In the heart of Södermalm, where Götgatan meets Medborgarplatsen, stands the Scandic Malmen Hotel. This is the hotel for those who want to be within easy reach of culture, shopping and the buzz of the city. The hotel puts you within walking distance of some of Stockholm’s best live venues – Mosebacke, Södra Teatern and Debaser. The district of SoFo has masses of trendy boutiques offering everything from Swedish fashion and design to vintage stores and stylish home furnishings.

The hotel now has a new restaurant plus the bars Stora Baren and Lilla Hotellbaren, with its stage for live music, making Scandic Malmen an excellent choice for modern guests looking to stay in Stockholm. Wireless Internet access is free, in your room and in the public areas. The organic breakfast buffet is always included – simply put, the perfect choice for any creator.

The Hotel-in-hotel concept
We are happy to present the first hotel-in-hotel in the world. The hotel-in-hotel concept is similar to the shop-in-shop concept in the retail business. One of the rooms at the Scandic Malmen hotel will be re-designed and transformed into Creators Inn by Elvine, a special room optimized for visiting creators and available free of charge.

Limited time only – register today!
The Creators Inn by Elvine at the Scandic Malmen hotel in Stockholm will be open under a limited time only, between August 1 and September 13. People who are interested in free accommodation in Stockholm during this period are welcome to register to stay straight away. Foreign guests and creators from Gothenburg are prioritized.

Creators Inn – The capsule version

We are proud to present the capsule hotel version of Creators Inn by Elvine together with creative collective LAT, located at Lindholmen in Gothenburg. When interviewing LAT we realized we had a lot in common in our quest to house visiting creators, so we decided to team up.

The capsule version of Creators Inn by Elvine differs from our previous rooms in some ways. There is only room for one person (or two if you have a very intimate relationship) in the private sleeping quarter, and the toilet and shower is shared with the other guests. On the other hand you get access to a common work space, kitchen, dining area, a music studio, and a work shop in the basement. Besides that you get the usual Creators Inn benefits such as clean sheets, bathrobe, slippers, free wifi and consumables.

We decided to try out the Creators Inn concept in a collective environment since many of our previous guests have listed “meeting other creators” as more important than “luxurious interior” while giving us feedback. Still, we wanted to keep the right to privacy and a high service level.

Please find out more about the creative collective LAT here, or email us if you have any questions or wish to stay in the room.

Creators Inn by Elvine is evolving

Due to an enormous interest and response from all around the globe, we feel the need for the project to evolve. Creators Inn by Elvine is no longer a room or a certain physical space, but merely an idea and concept of creative hospitality that can be spread to other parts of the world for a limited period of time. We are currently experimenting with our second room in Gothenburg to see how the project can be packaged, exported and implemented in other cities besides Gothenburg, keeping a high standard of comfort and service. Please keep emailing us if you have any ideas or suggestions.

Alcohol and the Bible

Open the night stand drawer in almost any hotel room in the world and you will find a Bible, usually placed there by there the Gideon’s International. But not at Creators Inn by Elvine. Instead you’ll find the pamphlet Alcohol and the Bible by Howard H. Charles. Here is what the Lutheran Witness Reporter had to say about it:

Regardless of the reader’s stand on moderation or total abstinence, this is a fair, exegetically sound, enlightening pamphlet worth reading
