Great old-school digs in Gamla Stan. Breakfast (included in our room price) was fantastic - muesli, fresh bread, cold cuts, fruit, hard-boiled eggs, etc - not to mention beetroot salad and salmon for those who want more traditional Swedish fare. Terrific coffee and tea - and you can even squeeze your own orange juice! Room was small but comfortable; it's... More

Situated in the Old City in central Stockholm. It is fresh and has chrystal chandeliers "everywhere". Fresh room and WC. Really nice breakfast, both the contents and the room. It feels like being in a nice mansion out in the countryside... I'd go there again if I have a chance. This hotel chain (Rica) is about to be incorporated into... More

The location could have been better, we had to walk quite a while to get to the main attractions. But this is a very charming neighbourhood and likewise charming hotel! Not exactly dreaming of coming back, but we had a nice time here, it had most of what we needed. Allthough, I don't think I would recommend it for young... More

I liked this hotel. Stayed 4 days. Close to everything incl the subway. Lovely breakfast. Loved the shower. Clean and well managed. Don t stay on the first floor. Noise from the street can affect your sleep. I will come back.

This is a charming little hotel in the old town. Rooms are generous and the bathrooms are clean and modern if a bit tight on space. The breakfast room is very pretty with an amazing array on offer, even a choice of store bought or squeezed fresh OJ. We didn't use the library but it offered tea and coffee and... More

Location is perfect for old town exploring and for the Gamla Stan T-banan stop and the street Lilla Nygatan was nice and quiet. The hotel is atmospheric, traditional and cosy. Our single rooms were compact, nicely furnished in traditional style, and the clean modern shower room (no bathtub) was well appointed. However, my ground floor room was a little noisy... More

The hotel perfectly first with its surroundings in the Old Town. It is as if you walk into a movie scene when you enter the Old Town and if you´re up for that, this hotel is definitely your place. The inside has the look & feel of the Old Town, but it is all crisp and clean. The furniture and... More

We have stayed here many times and really enjoy this hotel . The staff are friendly, the rooms traditional (with small bathrooms) but comfortable. The breakfast is excellent. Over the years we have noticed how the prices have risen but to get the best deal come at the week-end. The location for the old town is wonderful but it's very... More

My daughter and I chose this small hotel as it - according to website - seemed to be one of the most atmospheric places in Gamla Stan. The atmosphere was really cosy, authentic and “Gustavian” in lounge room, staircases and rooms. Ideal location for exploring Gamla Stan and Söder. Breakfast nice, home made selection served in a small but cosy... More

Good solid hotel : good location, a few minutes walk to the gamla stan t-bahn, about 15 minute walk to The City, good thorough breakfast, staff excellant. Good for travel with pets. Negatives: rooms tiny, noisy (my room was on the first floor facing the street), location: although Gamla Stan is very beautiful, it is very touristy with nothing but... More
