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

I LOVE Långholmen hostel and hotel. The prices for the rooms are quite un logical though. Most rooms are with bunk beds, both the youth hostel rooms and the hotel rooms - the only difference is that the hotel rooms come with linnen, but for that one pays nearly double price. Therefor it's better to have a youth hostel room... More

This is a way out of the centre but makes up for that by giving you access to the funky Sodermalm district with its bars and coffee shops. There's also a good Lidl at Liljeholmen which is good for stocking up (at average Lidl prices). The walk into the city centre is good along the river but can be repetitive... More

We stayed in Langholmen for two nights, whilst attending a wedding at the same hotel. As a converted prison, the hotel certainly has character! Each room is an old cell - we had a double room which seemed to be two cells knocked through, so was more spacious than our friends' room, which was quite a squeeze with a bunk... More

Good - quiet location, unique building, breakfast, atmosphere Bad - lack of info from staff The hotel is set opposite a beach and is surrounded by small woods and old-fashioned homes with elaborate gardens. It has a very countrysidey feel. It's about a ten minute walk through the park to the T-Bahn. The building itself is beautiful to look at... More

We were guests in this hotel for 3 nights while visiting Stockholm. The Hotel is a refurbished Jail that houses a Museum about its unusual history. The rooms are renovated Cells with twin bunks, windows that open, and bathrooms. Our room was smallish and we had rather large suitcases but we fit. There are larger rooms with double beds made...

I booked a bed in a shared hostel room, and ended up having the entire room to myself both nights. Very clean and tidy with a great breakfast available at a fabulous restaurant attached to the hostel/hotel. People of all ages stayed here while I did time. Not the most social place I've ever stayed, but aside from the slamming... More

Excellent, tidy, clean cells. Experience the prison with your preferred company. Pleasant location and preferable for those love calm and quiet location. It will be a pleasant experience on full moon day to look at the sky form the window of your cell. Cool breakfast.
