Benny from ABBA's Rival Hotel in Stockholm, Sweden

A few days ago, I was puzzled by a friend of mine’s Facebook status update. It said “Steve would like to thank Benny from ABBA for being such a gracious host.”
I enquired, and it turns out that hairy songsmith Benny Andersson runs a stylish city hotel in Stockholm, Sweden.
Alas, for those wanting some kitsch novelty joint full of disco balls, glitter and blaring video screens of the Fab Four, there’s no real ABBA theme to it.
However, my man says the Rival Hotel is a pretty neat place. There are a few quirky little touches – like a choice of pillows and magnifying mirrors in every bathroom – that raise it above the ordinary.
And guests also get a selection of CDs to choose from. So don’t forget to say Thank You For The Music...
