The place is very small, but that means cozy too. The location is within 2 minutes walking to all that Gamla Stan has to offer. Let me say this again, GREAT LOCATION! The hotel includes wifi and breakfast. Don't expect 5 star quality, but for the location it is worth the 3 stars and the staff is super friendly. AWESOME!

If you are staying for one night and have no intention of anything other than sleeping in the room there this place is ok... Otherwise avoid! Had a private bathroom which was awful, desperately needs some form of updating. Room was ground floor and a decent size but that was the only positive. Rudest desk staff i have ever encountered......

Great location, and lovely view from the windows that didn't shut properly out over the water. No TV, no kettle, very tired. Think of the when you move in to a house and there's that room that's begging to be decorated. That's where you're paying to be. Stockholm's not a cheap city, and to be fair the hotel was chosen...

My husband, son and myself stayed in a family room with a private bath and shower. It was very simple, but comfortable. It also had a kitchen which allowed us to prepare our own meals.

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighbourhood Profile
Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting: take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.
