We had a difficult time finding the hotel because of the construction going on in Stockholm. Very average room and breakfast. But in old town and walked everywhere. Very nice area. Parking was very far away and not at all convenient. But we wanted to be in Gamla Stan and it is right in the middle of it. Staff was... More

Located in the old town in a very old building with medieval atmosphere. Nice room and service. Location is right in Gamla Stan in the heart of the city. There's no Gym or Fitness center that's the only bad thing.

We drove to the address of the hotel using our GPS but our reservation was for The Rica Hotel Gamla Stan. The hotel is now The Scandic Gamla Stan. We had a nice room upstairs overlooking the street. It was a little noisy at night but we expected that in this very busy area. It was a perfect location to... More

Good location in the Old Town but the rest is average at best. The room was very small and facing one of the small streets where a garbage truck wakes you up at 5 am. The Wifi is free but very poor, in my room it worked best in the bathroom. The breakfast was ok but very basic, not much... More

stayed here for one night at end of august with my wife. Super location and room we had on 4th floor was clean and spacious (we had paid for the slightly larger room). Part of hotel roof was under reconstruction but the work did not disturb us at all. Good friendly staff - easy check in, looked after our bags... More

The location is really good. All the decorations, rooms, dining room, everything looks so swedish. Staff was very friendly and ready to help. However, I was unlucky to get the earlier mentioned room 209. So...it was really noisy during night. Herd people shouting, trains, noise and from early morning garbage trucks started to beep and peep...

I chose this hotel after reading about it on Trip Advisor wondering whether I was doing the right thing but no need to worry. Arriving from a Baltic cruise it was a short taxi ride to get there. Not super fancy but perfectly comfortable. Good shower, clean & right in Gamla Scan with many restaurants to choose from. Easy reach... More

This hotel screams Sweden. The decor gives you that special sense of being in Sweden and that was exactly what we were looking for. Besides the decor we were amazed by the easy-access to wifi, the good and healthy-choice breakfast buffet and the location of the hotel itself. It had everything we needed. We had room no 212 which does... More

The hotel is based in the city centre, the only positive aspect. The room is small, dark not well cleaned. There was anything in the minibar and they have no alcoholic drink. The breakfast is poor and even the room is too small for all the hotel guests, The staff was not nice and helpful: we have asked for a... More

Great location were it not for the noise at night. People screaming, hollering, shouting, trains rolling all through the night. We were in room 209, directly facing the street. Request other side if you want something quieter. Apart from that, we walked from the Railway station on arrival, walked to the Vasa Museum, and everywhere else during our three days.... More
