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

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

What a fortunate discovery this hotel was. If you love great location, good service and something a little different when you travel, this is it. Set in Stockholm's Old Town right in the thick of it all is the narrowest hotel in Stockholm. Filled with amazing pieces of Nelson related antiques and quirky pieces this hotel offers small but comfortable... More

A very pleasant and friend hotel, which look very clean and well kept from the outside as you approach. The reception and lounge area is decorated with a collection of wonderful artefacts for old ships etc. The staff were very warm and welcoming, and eager to help. It's very small though; very, very small - making the room either feel... More

Very quirky and comfortable hotel. Very clean and a very nice breakfast. Very courteous and helpful staff. The single rooms are very small and the bathrooms are extremely small (rooms at the corners of the building have much bigger bathrooms for the same price so ask if they are available). Great location in the old town and a 10 minute... More

My friend and I stayed here for three nights in June. It is a lovely, quirky family run hotel situated right in the middle of Gamla Stan. The staff are very friendly and helpful and all speak perfect English. The hotel is small and crammed full of naval antiques which make it very unique, you are always noticing new things.... More

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
