We traveled with friends in June 2013 to take a Baltic cruise that started in Stockholm, Sweden. We chose the First Reisen hotel primarily because of location in the old town close to the harbor and sight seeing. While the hotel is very European in style (read small rooms), it is ideally located and the staff is very friendly. They...

The place of the hotel is a beautiful place, the people are friendly and very helpfull. In the morning a lot of cyclist are on the way to the work and this is sometimes very dangerous, be carefull. The beds are very good and also the bathroom is perfect. Because the hotel is in the middle of the city... it...

Had a three night stay over a weekend. The hotel is in a fantastic location, right on the see front in the old part of town. Beware if you are arriving by the fast train from the airport. It is a good 20 minute walk or an expensive taxi ride away. We had a sea view which was great, but...

The First Hotel Reisen is in an excellent location in the Old Town but it shows its age. We had a good sized room with a balcony, the view from which was mostly roof tops with a narrow glimpse of the waterfront. There was no safe in the room which is something that you expect in an international hotel. We...

I requested a room with lot's of light on their highest floor, well in advance, and was given a room on the first floor, across from the elevator. Trash collectors breaking bottles woke me in the wee hours, then at 8, an idiot with a weed wackier starts up (there was one weed in the whole alley), for an hour,...

This hotel might be worth the price you pay on location alone, but our room and bathroom looked like they had not been re-decorated for a long time. They both urgently needed modernising. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. We would not recommend this hotel if the main purpose of the trip was to have a romantic weekend away.

I stayed at First Hotel Reisen on a business trip and the hotel was chosen for it´s location - not to the charming old city of Stockholm, but the company I was visiting. The old city is literally on the hotel´s door step and down town is a 10 minutes stroll away. Hence, the location is really great. I had...

We booked this hotel because it has a selection of 4 stars and elected by tripadvisor as an excellent hotel. We payed in advanced, and when we arrived they told us they were upgrading us for 20 euros more each day, which we accepted. The location was perfect and we went all day walking around the city. At night we...

We stayed one night in this hotel, and were very comfortable. The location is excellent, close to all the sights of the Old Town and the rest of Stockholm. The ferry over to Djurgården and the Wasa ship museum is across the street.Many nice restaurants and cafes are close by. Near to subway and bus, and a short taxi ride...

I was involved in a long project across in Stockholm and stayed in the hotel on and off for around 6 months. During that time the hotel ran a fully upgrade of rooms, updating the Wifi service and TV's within the room. Now the Wifi service and TVs are as sleek as the rest of the hotel. You wont find...

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.
