High expectations met. Great location, view, furnishings. This is a perfect spot if you want to visit a bit of the old Stockholm and feel a part of it. Excellent location on Gamla Stan waterfront, minutes from Royal Palace, etc.

Good location, good service and the restaurant was very good. No AC in the room is a problem since the room became like a sauna. Trafic outside is quite heavy and disturbing if you open the windows. However, overall the stay was good and I could recomend this hotel.

We had made our booking many months in advance because of the reviews we read in TripAdvisor. We arrived early, around 0830, after getting off of a cruise and knew our room would not be ready. Lukas at the front desk went out of his way to take care of our luggage and get the room ready as soon as... More

Great location with plenty of dining choices right around the corner in Gamla Stan. Hotel staff went out of their way to help us with directions, recommendations and ordering cabs. The bar was friendly and fun. The waiters were pleasant and easy going. We were upgraded (complimentary) to a deluxe room with sauna and jetted tub. The room was furnished... More

We stayed in this hotel two nights in July 2014. Being a family of four, we stayed in a junior suite which was big enough to sleep all four. Having read some of the reviews of this hotel we were worried that some rooms were too noisy and specifically called the hotel to ask for a room on a high... More

Our Superior room with seaview was a bit cramped, especially the bathroom which was really tiny. An expensive address but the great advantage is that you are in the centre of Stockholm but not in the noisiest part.

Dear Nitocris, Thank you for your review. Our facility is old, from the 17th and 18th Century, which consequently results in smaller rooms. We try to lay our focus on guest service which we hope you appreciated. Let us know next time you decide to stay with us and we will try to accommodate you better. Best regards, Team Reisen More

I went for a business trip and found the hotel rather old and worn. The location on Gamla Stan is nice but there are better places with a similar price close by. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was alright but I would recommend getting a frukost somewhere else.

unforgettable location, excellent staff, great value for money Hotel is an old building in excellent condition, invites to think of heritage. Pool in basement, if heated would be better (good enough for Sweden stds) Bar and restaurant excellent too.

Dear Dave and Rita Thank you for your excellent review! During winter, the Swedes like to toast themselves in the sauna and then roll themselves in the snow. This is the experience we wish to convey to our guests, a taste of Swedish tradition. We hope the plunge pool was not too much of a chock! Best regards, Team Reisen More

Really handily placed for Gamla Stan, the Old Town, and for all the inter-island ferries and tourist bus & boat trips. Friendly, efficient staff, attractive place. The evening meals were beyond our budget, but the buffet breakfasts were excellent (I was particularly impressed with the tasty breads). There wasn't much space in our room to store clothes - not much... More

Located right next to the Royal Palace, right behind the Gamla Stan shopping area, the hotel is very centrally located. After the day's sightseeing, I would simply take off for 1-2 hours to explore the surroundings on foot - trying to make the most of the 9.30 pm sunset. The bar at that time was always buzzing - seems to... More
