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.
First of all with the place, it is at first sight unpretentious but it has a unique ambiance. Pigeons are friendly especially if you feed them, so are some other tourists and locals whether you offer them a coffee or just a chat!
"Visit of the palace leaves an impression of elegance"
reviewed 2 days ago by Leopardik
It was my second visit to Stockholm and first visit of the Royal palace. Some exhibits like bowknots and ribbons look elegant and gorgeous. Collection of the royal jewellery (on the ground floor) is enough impressive. Some pieces of old furniture and column fireplaces are beautiful. Unfortunately there's lack of light in most of the rooms but this place is...
"The Royal Armoury with a special exhibit of samurai knives"
reviewed 3 days ago by jlareza
Very interesting exhibit of old royal armours or the royalties and their horses, royal clothing, small royal children's clothes. The heavy, woven armours for horses are amazing. For the season, we even saw an exhibit of katanas. A must see when you are in Stockholm. It is free to visit the Royal Armoury.
I know its just another Church in a place with so many, but this one has a bit more history especially with the Royal weddings taking place here over the centuries. I loved the art inside, especially St Andrew Killing the dragon which seems to appear in a lot of baltic/Scandinavian churches, this one is huge and magnificent .
Decided to go here based on reviews and the look of the place. It's tiny, so inviting and intriguing! I was there with two male friends, we were lucky to get a table without reservations. We ordered the house special with two tapas each and we got plenty of food. The sausage was delicious and then a special mention to...
* note* I traveled during shoulder season*
A co-worker told me I had to go here so I booked a reservation. It's ridiculously great. You have to walk down an alley in Gamla Stan and then down into a basement that transports you into a good semblance of a Viking long house.
I don't want to give away too much,...
I have only a few hours in Stockholm and visit this cafe by chance while strolling the old town. Very cozy and friendly decor with all those wall writings. Yummy banana strudel and nice cappuccino (a bit creamy though).
Will definitely come back here.
This hotel actually has a couple of apartments attached. This review is for one of them. We stayed in "The Commodore's Apartment." It was great. It actually cost me less than a room in the main apartment, and we got so much more for it! Had a full kitchen, bathroom, and living room. Also a clothes washing machine. Plus, you...
I have just spent two nights at the Lady Hamilton. This was a great hotel, located in the heart of Gamla Stan and close to many attractions. The hotel is also within easy walking distance of all types of public transport. I had a single room which was well equipped, cozy, but not too small. The bathroom was spacious and...
You can't beat the location. It was perfect. My room was very small and didn't have much room besides the bed. The staff were extremely helpful and breakfast was very nice. I would recommend to friends
Staying for 2 nights. Business. Great location, friendly staff and excellent breakfast!
Palace and the Old Town area are just within 5 mins from the hotel. It's always pleasant to visit the Old Town to relax a bit after a busy day!
Bed is a bit soft unfortunately but that's very common for hotels in Stockholm.
Lord Nelson is located in the heart of old town so great position to explore Stockholm.
Our room was the smallest in the hotel so not that comfortable but rest of the hotel makes up for it.
Great decor everywhere and fantastic poop deck on top the roof.
