Lord Nelson Hotel is a cute hotel, they have turned their relative small size into a positive atmosphere. The Maritime theme (hence Lord Nelson) is visible everywhere. In my single room just off the breakfast / bar area it reminded me of a cruise feeling. Very hospitable staff and chilled out feeling, very good for families or couples to go... More

This hotel is ideally placed for exploring central Stockholm in particular the Gamla Stan area which is lively with loads of bars and places to eat. The hotel itself is tiny - only 6 metres wide! The decor is modelled on a ship so the rooms are 'cabins'. There's lots of ship memorabilia around the hotel which is interesting. I... More

With only one night spent in Stockholm, we couldn't have asked for a better location to see all the sights we could all in walking distance. We felt welcome immediately, also being allowed to check in early as we arrived before the official checking time. Staff at front desk were very friendly, well informed and courteous.

After extensive research we booked a room in the Lord Nelson Hotel. We definitely made the right choice as the location is fabulous…. within walking distance to many restaurants, pubs, shops, museums, and the Hop-on Hop-off bus stop. The hotel is cozy with a personal touch. Everything was wonderful and we would definitely recommend this hotel to others. All of... More

The booking policy was stated as: Immediately upon confirmation, this booking is completely non-refundable. Changes without penalty are also not guaranteed. I was informed after two weeks of trying to change a booking that the penalty is 100% charge. This means it is non-refundable and not possible to change the booking. A three night charge to try and change a... More

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
