Berns welcomed Robbie Williams, Bill Gates and the Dalai Lama, and held concerts of Marlene Dietrich, Aretha Franklin and The Supremes. Strindberg named his novel ‘The Red Room’ after one of the halls of the hotel. Despite its rich history, Berns looks more like a fashionable London hotel, rather than the one built in the middle of the 19th century. Terence Conran’s design is clearly visible: colored wallpapers and carpets, wooden elements, chairs from the 70's, British flag on the walls, and passion for expensive facilities (Bang & Olufsen).
Come to Berns Asiatiska to feel the spirit of times. This Chinese restaurant was open back in the 40’s. It’s no wonder that it won ‘the restaurant of the year’ award in 2012 with its 20-meter-high ceilings, formidable cut-glass chandeliers and red velvet chairs.
