Based on the reviews we thought we would either love or hate this hotel. I will say that this just added to our adventure. We were expecting small rooms, but even so it was a bit of a shock when we entered our room. That being said, it was clean and comfortable. Although the rooms were tight, we were able... More

This is a great hotel. Charming and comfortable as long as you don't plan on staying in your room for a long period of non-sleeping time - cos it really is narrow. Breakfast is superb, service excellent, the staff are really nice and helpful. Located in the heart of Gamla Stan, it's within walking distance of the railway station and... More

Loved my tiny room with the illuminated ship over my bed. Loved the unique atmosphere. It's right in the old town with easy access to tourist shopping and culture as well as modern shopping. Very close to the train station that takes you right to the airport. Tons of restaurants within a minute walk. The only issue is that a... More

Right on the main shopping and pedestrian street in Stockholm's Old Town, the Lord Nelson hotel is one of those funky great little hotels that attracts the experienced traveler. beautifully decorated in a nautical theme throughout, complete with statues of Nelson himself, this little gem of a hotel will make you want to be "impressed" by the Old lord himself...

There is a very distinct maritime theme at this small, slightly quirky hotel. "Cabin" bedrooms, with single beds (handy for a business trip), deck plank floors and a porthole window into the bathroom give the impression that you are onboard a ship. There are lots of maritime pictures, model ships and antiques around the hotel. A tiny roof terrace perched... More

This is a charming hotel with friendly reception, the main problem is that I got very little sleep. I found my single room was very small, and it was too hot, so I had to open the window. The church bells ring out every quarter of an hour, and there seem to be three church's locally that ring every hour.... More

Love little hotel in the heart of the Old Town in Stockholm. The room was a bit worn down, but that just adds up to its charm. Swedens most narrow hotel they claim and what I can see it is correct. I'll be sure to pay them a visit again. Recommended!

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!
