Located in Gamla Stan which is the old city of Stockholm, this hotel is perfect if you are looking for a old Stockholm atmosphere experience. The hotel itself located really near to the palace with some museums around. The hop in hop off bus is just around the corner and the boat tour as well. It also took only 15...

We had a room overlooking the water and enjoyed the ambiance of the hotel. The staff were great and the hotel was close to all amenities, walking distance to ferries, bus and train. Restaurant had the best Swedish meatballs.

Location is central, on the bus route. Staff is very pleasant and cooperative. Each room is very pretty and offers some with water views. We had a 5AM taxi ride to the airport. We asked for a to-go breakfast and were awed at the bag of goodies... delish! Cost was fair. The dining room had a wide variety of choices...

We visited Stockholm for New Year 2016. I chose the hotel because of its location. The hotel is a pleasant building facing the water. We arrived mid evening. We were dealt with professionally by the reception staff. The hotel has a couple of relatively small lifts. We were on the second floor. The internal corridor was lovely with exposed brickwork...

My husband and I spent there 4 days and we enjoyed our stay. The location is great and the view from our room was perfect, we spend new year's eve there so we could enjoy the fireworks straight form our room. The staff was friendly and the room was clean. The breakfast was just perfect, great choice of food.

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.
