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.
A very wonderful old town in sweden , it seems a very different city if you will come to this place. This shows a very different culture of sweden. Small small streets and lots of cafes here , seriously mind blowing.
This church is beautiful inside and has a spectacular sculpture made of elk horns and wood from the 1400s. We didn't know too much about the history of the church and didn't have an inherent interest so only spent about 15 minutes here.
'Little boy looking at the moon' is the smallest statue in Stockholm. The sculpture is only 15 centimeters high.
This sympathetic sculpture can be hard to find. It is located behind the Finnish Church next to the Royal Palace.
My husband and I were looking for authentic Swedish food and found this quaint little restaurant. Even though they were very busy, the staff was super friendly and made us feel very welcome. They recommended the pork cheeks for dinner, which were superb! It was probably the nicest restaurant we ate at on our trip. I highly recommend.
I loved the place! The menu has a great variety of all Italian classics that are on a regular rotation. Pastas are to die for, taste amazingly and properly al dente. Very impressive wine selection that won't leave you broke. Staff is the best and really strive to make your dinner special. On one of my visits here I disliked...

"Lovely cozy wine bar"

We had a very nice experience here, even though their kitchen was closed due to the coronavirus. But they made beautiful cheese boards and the wine was great. Try to go when there is no pandemic! Although the staff was lovely and very attentive!
"Uitstekend diner op een eersterangs plek aan de bar-"

We managed to get two seats at the bar and although it was quite warm we could 'stand the heat of the kitchen'. Chef Dogges (Douglas) was strict but fair and gave everything he had in both the cooking as in leading his crew. Yes, the space is limited, but its only troublesome if you have to use the bathroom....
My husband and I really enjoyed staying at this unique hotel during our 4 night trip to Stockholm. The building is 413 years old and has only 7 guest rooms so has a very cosy and timeless feel to it, especially with the candle fixtures in the rooms and stairwell and the actual candles in the breakfast room on the...

In the heart of Gamla Stan, you cannot go wrong. Top highlights and recomendations:
1. Get the Captain Johnannson suite if you can - This historic room set the tone for my first experience in Stockholm.
2. Book a session in the private Sauna!! IT's a MUST!
3.Grab a drink at Tweed bar if you can get in.
Lady Hamilton Hotel was a pleasant surspise.
I had expected a lot of noise during the night,
but it was VERY quiet, and the beds most comfortable.
Breakfast was ample and of high quality; the scrmabled eggs
were NOT soggy
Stayed here whilst at a conference, and enjoyed the easy access to public transit. The building is something like 16th century - check out the worn stone staircase - that is interesting but of course does mean some compromises e.g. a tiny lift, very small bathroom (the sink is even in the way when you sit on the toilet). Surprised...
This charming hotel is located on a pedestrian only (but very busy) street in the old town. It is just a short walk to the Royal Palace, Parliament Building, Nobel Museum, the harbor area and a myriad of shops and restaurants. We had a quiet and cozy 4th floor room toward the rear of the building so did not hear...
