Quiet location with beautiful sea view only a 10 min walk from city center. Comfortable beds and linen and allergy-friendly wooden floor secured our night's sleep. Very good breakfast with delicious bread, although a bit crowded at 'rush hour' so try to be on the early or late side. Also had a good dinner the first evening. Loved the rain... More

This was our third visit to the Hotel Skeppsholmen and it just gets better and better. Our room had a seaview, which was a delight to wake up to and the rainfall shower was very welcome after a long day sightseeing. Strong points for me were the exceptional customer service, how peaceful the hotel felt and the lovely breakfast. I'd... More

It's by far not the most convenient location in the city but it's only a short 15 minute stroll to old town. Service is great, hotel is pristinely clean throughout, breakfast is sumptuous (included when I booked) and lovely (designer / boutique) decorated. There are bus stops and a ferry pier when you can hop on to visit other attractions... More

Where to start?! There is so much to love about this hotel! The heritage building has lots of character, the interior is design with taste and of course with the Scandinavian touch to it.

Together with our two young children, we stayed at Hotel Skeppsholmen for 8 nights in total over the recent Christmas period. The hotel was a great base for sight seeing with the ferry less than a minute away and an easy and picturesque walk to central Stockholm and Gamla Stan. The staff was fabulous. They were warm, professional and attentive.... More

Perfect location for a short stay in Stockholm at any time throughout the year. Quiet, a few walking minutes away from centre, well managed boutique type of hotel (despite its size and number of rooms). Rich breakfast and friendly staff.

We recently had a three-night stay at the Skeppsholmen, which we used as a base for local sightseeing. Originally built in 1699 as military housing, the hotel hotel has been thoroughly updated into a small "design" property with rooms and a restaurant divided between two main buildings. The hotel is about a 45-minute taxi trip from Arlanda. Taxi drivers don't... More

Hotel Skeppsholmen is a thoroughly charming hotel that is much more conveniently located than we knew. The hotel is composed of two long, narrow barracks, so the rooms are also narrow, and spread out. But the linear design makes it easy to get from the restaurant/check-in area to any room, and there are elevators in each building. Our room was... More
