Very nice, old fashioned hotel. Room was a bit small but was clean and had everything we needed, though we couldn't really open the window as it was directly next to the vent from the kitchen. We didn't eat in the hotel, though the restaurant looked very nice. There is no parking for guests at the moment here and it's...

Sitting on the outer part of the hotel for a coffee - we were waiting for our boat back to Stockholm, and had the feeling, we were missing something better, they would like to serve, than just a coffee and some cookies. Service was quick and very friendly, as we had to be on time for our boat. Nice place,...

Very friendly staff and excellent service and food both for dinner and breakfast which is an extensive buffet. Rooms are clean and well sized with en suite shower.

I stayed here for 3 nights. The hotel is the closest to the pier. My room, a single beded, was very basic, but clean. It's narrow 2 meters by around 8 m. No air-conditioning in the hot summer nights. Opening the window brought the noise and cigarette smoke from the neighbours. Breakfast is basic. Service is good.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights with our baby. Everywhere else we stayed really helped out with our needs but the Waxholms hotell went out of there way to be unhelpful. Firstly there is no car parking, with the nearest long stay (more than 4 hours) being a school some 10 minute walk away. The hotel knew months...

Great hotel in a beautiful spot on the planet. Don't miss the breakfast, it's awesome! No air-conditioning in the rooms so if it's a hot summer in Sweden and you are looking for a place to cool off you'll need to do it in the water or in their restaurant which is air-conditioned. There is loud music in the bar...

It is actually quite a nice hotel. It overlooks the bay where you can see boats, ferries and other marina vessels tootling along. It has its own bar and restaurant which I thought were very reasonable and the staff were extremely friendly and nice. Always helps with the reviews.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The beautiful setting of the hotel offers fantastic views over the bay Vaxholmsfjärden and the fortress Kastellet. Our 42 rooms offer good comfort and you will enjoy the food in our restaurant, take part in your conference while the ships drift past outside the window. We recommend you to come here at th four most fascinating times of the year: summer autumn, winter and spring. In the summer, Vaxholms is boiling. Boats come and go around the clock, the bridge is never still. The restaurants are crowded, the bay makes a vivid scenery. The whole place is seeting with life and joy ... more   less
