The rooms are about what you'd expect for the price. Simple, small and clean which if you're on a budget is great. They've got a nice lobby/common room that's comfortable as well as a kitchen to use. They're in the best area for exploring Stockholm, it's a short walk to explore a lot of the major sites, or to get...

We stayed one night there. It was the cheapest variant with the Gamla Stan location and breakfast included. Nonetheless we have no windows in the room, the atmosphere was quite and we felt no inconveniences. Also the stuff was friendly.

We booked a doble room with shared bathroom through 'Booking' and the photos we checked did not show that the rooms were divided by crystal biombs with white curtains instead of walls. As a consequence, we could hear all our neighbours' noises. There was no wifi connections in the rooms that were downstairs. Apart from that, the day we were...

Old Town Lodge is a small hostel in the centre of the old town, a short hop from shops, restaurants and ferries. Rooms are simply furnished but clean and crisp, and there are plenty of showers. A simple coffee, bread and cheese breakfast is served, but you can upgrade to a more filling breakfast box delivered to your room. Only...

Good friendly place with an excellent location - in the heart of the old town We stayed in the basement with natural brick walls, vaulted ceilings and glass partitions between rooms - the original solution of placing something between dorm and dubleroom :)

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights before Christmas. We had a private room with a shared bath, one of the rooms right near the front of the building. Noise wasn't a problem and we never had to wait too long to use the showers. There was a kitchen area, but we didn't prepare any food there. It...

The Location in Gamla Stan is beautiful and serves as a great point to explore Stockholm by foot. The staff was friendly and the rooms were clean and tidy. Breakfast is taken in a common room where it is nice to congregate and meet new people. One can also buy ones own food stuff and use the kitchen utilities to...

Lived here twice. Location - amazing. All the attractions of Gamla stan around, five minutes walk to Sodermalm, ten minutes walk to Drottninggatan, ten minutes walk to Arlanda Express station or T-Centralen. The staff is really friendly, not just officially polite. The only thing that is a bit disappointing - there's no "pay when you stay" option.

Stayed at hotel in private room which was fine. Every thing was clean and bed comfortable. Not a place where you want to spend time in hotel as rooms are small but it's what we expected. location in Stockholm is ten out of ten. You can walk to palace in 5 min and we walked to vasa in around 30...

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.
