Great location on a quiet street in atmospheric Gamla Stan. It is a short walk to the metro (also within walking distance of T-centralen where the airport coach terminates). Our room was small and had no view (the hotel is hemmed in by residential buildings) but was comfortable and warm. Breakfast is very good and the lounge has a nice... More

I have stayed here many times on business. The rooms are small but perfectly pick up Stockholm's maritime history. Located in Gamla Stan, it is a bit too touristy and often difficult for taxis to find when you come from Arlanda Airport. On the upside there are some fantastic restaurants and bars to visits if you get off the main... More

Small hotel in Gamla Stan (Old town) I rented a single room. Clean, quiet with an original touch (Ship models). A cozy lounge downstairs, viewing deck on the roof, access to a very nice sauna/relax in their nearby sister hotel.The paint and some small things could use a touch up but otherwise in good order.

Love the Royal Navy? Fantasies of the bounding main, defending Queen and Country from 18th century scourges? You will love the nautical theme and antiques of the Lord Nelson. Prefer to walk in and have the staff welcome you by make before you say who you are? It happened to me. Maybe you just want to be in the heart... More

narrowest hotel in sweden, and size of single room testifies. . however, it was cutely designed as a ship's cabin, and functioned well. The location is very good, and the staff were pleasant and helpful. Only take up the offer of the roof top views if you are brave. . . better people watching from the front windows :)

Behind the narrowest frontage of any hotel in Stockholm lies a little gem. Great location in the old town, walking distance to most attractions and lots of cafés, and very friendly helpful staff. Our room was small but very comfortable and quiet, breakfast good.

The rooms are very clean and the old building itself makes this Hotel very charming. But do not expect to much. Inside it's very modest: old carpets, old furniture and very narrow rooms and stairs. I travelled for business and would still recommend it.

i have been booking this hotel due to the many good reviews i read- which was a mistake. Really the only good thing I can say about the hotel is its location- and the potential what could be done with such a gem, situated right in the heart of the old town of Stockholm. As many other reviewers already mentioned,... More

Hej hochrot, We were really sad to read about your experiences during the visit at Lord Nelson Hotel and we do apologize for any inconvenience caused. The rooms at the Lord Nelson are small, cabin rooms, as the hotel is constructed like a ship. But there also rooms of various sizes and facing different streets, so whenever possible we try... More

The word quirky is used a lot to describe this hotel, but quaint is better. It's quirky because everything is small - the rooms are very tiny, hallways, staircases very narrow, small reception and breakfast area. But the location is perfect - right on the main tourist street in old town, Vasterlanggatan. Price is very reasonable for Stockholm. I use... More
