A lovely, quirky little hotel! The staff were friendly and the location, right in the middle of Gamla Stan, is excellent for exploring the city. The single room I stayed in was "compact" but the character made up for that. I'd definitely stay here again.

Definitely an older building, but with great character--cute and cozy (read: small. It even boasts being the "narrowest" hotel in Sweden). Great location to walk around Old Town or to cross over and walk into the city. Staff was very helpful and welcoming. A good continental breakfast is included and free internet. They have a door to the roof that... More

From check in to check out the service here was great. The breakfast was lovely and the location is great! The only down side is the rooms are small and dated for the price you pay. If you're looking for a good base to explore Gamla Stan this is a great choice!

We had an unplanned stopover in Stockholm due the adverse weather. We stayed in the Lord Nelson and they were really helpful with the hotel computer for the nightmare that is trying to rebook flights when there are cancellations all round. The staff did more than could have been expected. It is a reasonably priced hotel in the middle of... More

Lord Nelson is a small, family-owned hotel in The Old City (Gamla Stan) in Stockholm. It has a splendid location in the heart of the city, with walking-distance to most of the city centre - and even to Sødermalm. The hotel is a collector's hotel - and there really is a lot of maritime details and things all over the... More

This is a small hotel on the main shopping street in the old town on Gamla Stan. Firstly it is in walking distance from the Central Station and the Arlanda Express Terminal. The welcome was friendly and efficient with the staff speaking english. I had a single room which was more spacious than I had been led to believe. It... More

This hotel is small, charming, intimate and well located. It is not fancy but good value for the money, especially in Stockholm, which is unbelievably high priced. You can walk to everything. But be sure to get an inside room, since Vasterlanggatan is a very busy pedestrian thoroughfare. I found the hotel staff welcoming, friendly and helpful. All speak excellent... More

I usually stay in the larger chain hotels when visiting Stockholm for work. Everything was booked so this was the only place available on my company's travel site. It is not a place I would ever choose to stay but might work for some. It is a small hotel that is modeled after a ship.. Yes a ship. It also... More

Found this hotel on the internet which I chose because of its value and the fact that it was right in the heart of the Old Town section of Stockholm -- and I mean right in the heart of the main street which teems with almost exclusive pedestrian tourist traffic day and night. The room was Spartan but had a... More

This hotel is very central in Gamla Stan and not far from the station. I got a great deal and paid less than half price for my room but I found the decor rather tired. Also seemed to be lots of noisy people around outside during the night not helped by the chiming clock! Didn't get a chance to try... More
