LIDKOPING / SWEDEN
The COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on the hospitality and catering sector, forcing first the closure of facilities and then the opening with enormous restrictions. But it has been successfully reinvented.
This is the case of the Stadt Hotel in Sweden, which has converted its 67 rooms into private dining rooms. In fact, it has turned the whole hotel into a kind of restaurant with luxury reservations for its diners, who can eat with the peace of mind of knowing that they do not have to share the space with anyone else and that they will be completely safe. The idea and the starting point is very simple: instead of offering a table in a dining room, they offer a room that has a table, and that can accommodate groups of between 2 and 12 people. Food orders can be placed from the phone, so guests must never leave the room.
The tables of this quaint restaurant you can book for two and a half hours, but in the case of dinner you can keep the room to spend the night for some extra money.
