Fun and different. Very friendly staff. Public transport is within walking distance, metro line leaves you in T-central and Galma Stan. Breakfast is standard and abundant. I definitly recomend this hotel for a different experience.

Cells are nice. Like cabins in Ferries between Swe-Fin or fin-Ee with exception the bathroom bigger and with window. The gest house was wery silent. Breakfast was very nice, much nicer than in hotels e.g. In Tampere or the Haque where I have travelled a lot for business. It was nice to walk from a dinner seaside to the hotell... More

Coming off the bridge we were looking for our 'hostel' and walked past the hotel twice, we simpyl couldn't believe that a building and outfit so nice was also a hostel. But it was, and the 'prison' is divided up accordingly. The hostel is very quiet (Or certainly was when we stayed) and we felt like the only guests in... More

I stayed here for a few nights while attending a conference this winter. There was a large camp of homeless on the island and it was actually pritty disgusting to see. Didn´t feel that safe walking around at night. The room was two old prison cells put together. It was pretty dark and not that much space. The breakfast was... More

Dear Swedish_Traveller. Thank you a lot for review and feedback, we appreciate and value your opinion. There are unfortunately around 40 settlements for homeless people in Stockholm today, and one of those was for a short period of time located at the Långholmen island. Is has now been moved by the authorities from Långholmen and we do not expect it... More

Small hotel with nice conference facilities and friendly service. Healthy and very decent breakfast. Very small but cosy bar area. Restaurant with high quality cuisine. The bad side is the rooms: Very small and claustrophobic with no storing space, desk or other comfort facilities. Room decoration tasteless and indiscreet, with photos of former prisoners. No aircon and window not easy... More

I stayed at Långholmen Hotell for one night during a meeting (at the hotel as well). My room was quite small but charming if you take the history of the building into account. Breakfast was very good as well as the service. The meeting facilities were very good and the pastries and sandwiches during breaks was better than good!

Former Swedish State Prison gives you shelter at a decent rate. Not the most fashionable among the hotels in Stockholm, but there is a bit of history hidden in the walls of every cell. Really a captivating feeling when the cell door closes behind you. Narrow rooms may cause a bit of anxiety the first time you visit. But it... More

General: Great hotel with an interesting history located on a island. Being an old prison, the design of the hotel is nice and they kept some of the interesting details. Check in was quick and efficient. The only drawback I could find here is that it is somewhat out of the city centre and I needed a taxi to go... More

We stayed three nights in this pleasant, prison hotel. The location is very quiet on the lovely island of Langholmen. Our room was a double, with two beds side by side and two folded up bunks, but at SEK 2,000.00 per night it was high! We booked last minute so it was our fault. We walked into town and enjoyed...

Was a bit fearful about staying in a prison cell (slightly claustrophobic) , but on check-in all fears went when I saw the lovely, clean bed linen and the airy, open window in the quirky 'cell'. We had great fun trying to negotiate who would get the top bunk, with a view. Bathrooms were small but clean and towels were... More
