I have never thought that I'd stay in a prison hotel before. This hotel's picked by my friends and we stayed there on my birthday! But the result's quite unexpected, and quite impressive, not far from the city centre as well. My friends arranged a surprised little party for me and they even asked hotel to buy a cake -... More

This place was once a prison. It has been redone into a hotel and is quite beautiful. The halls have a symmetry and calmness. The rooms themselves are compact and small, but the beds comfortable and the bathrooms clean and modern. If you are looking for the large American hotel room this is not your place. But if you are...

Let me start off by saying that i stayed in this hostel quite a few years ago (before Tripadvisor was anything anyone cared about) -- and I currently watched a re-run of "No Reservations" and Mr. Bourdain reminded me of my wonderful stay and prompted me to write a review. I was visiting Stockholm with a friend and a few... More

Stayed in Langholmen during a busy May weekend. Was not sure if I should book this place since it was a bit over our budget and quite far from the centre but it was SO worth it. It's a very quirky place with lots of charm on an quiet island which feels like countryside an added bonus after a busy... More

No matter how much I tried to convince myself it still felt like a prison. Small room and if you are claustrofobic, look for something else. If not, go for the experience. The service was good and the breakfast too.

A different experience, after all it's not every day you get the opportunity to sleep in a prison cell. The room is great, with an excellent bathroom. The breakfast is divine, very worthwhile. The location is reasonable, you can walk to the center of Stockholm, but it takes about 30/40 minutes. The hotel is on an island in the middle... More

The converted prison makes for a very interesting stay. The beds are comfortable and its nice and quiet. The staff however are a little on the stiff side and could value from some customer service training. Not all visitors from other countries are as stand offish as some Swedes. Other than that a great stay and i would recommend this... More

We stayed in Långholmen, in the hotel section, at the end of May. It is definitelty the most interesting hotel I've stayed in. We had a lovely double room (which in Sweden means 2 single beds pushed together) which was overlooking the former inmates exercise yard with a simple but clean bathroom. The wifi signal was excellent and the water... More

As an experience, this has to be one of the best places I have ever stayed. The idea of staying in a converted prison is what brought me to this place and it paid off really well. The beds were really comfortable and I slept great. The rooms were spotless and the bathroom was awesome (overhead shower head! You just... More

If you like to try things that are different, try langholmen. A prison stay is a unique experience. The rooms are converted cell blocks, very clean and modern. Beds are comfortable. Staff is helpful and friendly.
