73 Luntmakargt, Stockholm, SE-113 51, Sweden

When he was a photojournalist, Per Hellsten dreaded missing calls while in the shower. Now as owner of the Rex Hotel, he has eliminated that frustration by installing phones—along with heated ?oors and towel racks—in the gray Karystos-stone bathrooms of this 1866 building on a quiet street. The 32 bedrooms combine original details such as pine-plank ?oors with bright blue-and-burgundy bedspreads and Hellsten’s own photographs.
