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.

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
