Stayed here with a group of friends and it was great! Prefect location right in the middle of stockholm with amazing views over the old city and river. Room did the job as it was clean and comfortable. The whole place was very clean and staff very friendly and due to all this I would highly recommend it.

My husband and I stayed in a twin room at The Red Boat for two nights. The location of the hostel is very good, within walking distance of Gamla Stan (Old Town) and the hip SoFo area. It is a bit of a walk to the Gamla Stan metro station with baggage, but doable. It’s easy to find if you... More

There are two boats. We stayed in the silent boat, still because of drunk neighbours could not sleep all night. View is amazing, I would watch the city all day, night. Breakfast was delicious. Prices are also ok, it is 15 min. walks from the Gamla Stan metro station with your baggage.

The hotel/hostel is actually 2 boats. The 2nd boat next door is quite plain in comparison to the red boat itself. Rooms are ok, small cabins but clean and comfortable. Shared bathrooms also nice and clean. You can hear pretty much everything from other rooms but they operate a no noise policy after 10pm. Its a great location, 10 mins... More

This nice hotel is in a strategic position near the subway station. Being on a boat it is very characteristic in its kind, after sleeping some days on it you will have a funny sensation when being on the land. The rooms are quite essential and the hotel is cheap. Some services could be better, the lower bathroom sometimes is... More

We stayed for 2 nights in January. What a unique and different place to stay. You can stay in a rectangular hotel room anytime but when do you have the chance to stay in a boat overlooking Gamla Stan? We took the T and walked over the bridge to the boat from Gamla Stan. The rooms are small and clean... More

I stayed here for three nights in April and I was quite satisfied! It's located in Södermalm and very central to pretty much everything- it's just a short walk to Gamla stan. The rooms were very clean and the toilets and showers were also clean. You get bed linens for free- you also get a postcard and a toffee on... More

Quality/price not so good considering that rooms are really small, showers and toilets are shared, every little movement of a neighbor wakes you up... Don't consider this hotel if you do not plan to go to bed before 3-4am and if your sleep is not good... Staff is not nice btw

We stayed in one of the double deluxe rooms with ensuite bathroom, and we could not fault the room/cabin. There is a lot of attention to detail here with plenty of electrical sockets, lights, and just enough space to feel very comfortable. There is a very good buffet breakfast, and a small bar on the main boat with a small... More
