Upon arrival at the hotel, the only check-in mechanism was a phone number that we were supposed to call. As Americans, we had not paid for European phone chips or service, and therefore could not reach anyone to let us in. No email had ever been sent, as the hotel had promised, with codes to open the gate or get... More

We stayed for 2 nights on the SS Monika. Its a good alternative base for sightseeing around Stockholm. We arrived early but not a problem, we stayed in the deluxe room at the front of the boat. Was really peaceful and quiet. We slept like babies!The canal path you can walk to Gamla Stan in about half an hour. Breakfast... More

I stayed at this lovely hotel in Stockholm in June 2014 with my partner and six year old stepdaughter. We all loved staying on the M/S Monika, which is a really unique place to stay and has super cosy rooms - where you literally rock to sleep! The breakfasts were yummy and the staff were really helpful too.

This is a unique place to stay in Stockholm! Small and quiet place with beautiful decoration. Very clean, comfortable and warm. Delicious breakfast. A bit far from the city center but still possible to walk.

This hotel is one of a kind. It is located on a boat at a canal and run by a family. The rooms are very thought through and it does not feel small or crowded although it is on a boat. If you want to experience something different, stay at M/S Monika!

Monika was most accommodating when we discovered that the booking dates were off because of a booking error. Monika noticed the issue first and made adjustments to accommodate us. The quad room was larger than we expected and the breakfast was plentiful and tasty. A very positive experience.

We stayed here over Easter when the ice was just breaking on the water. We could hear the water and ice against the boat which was restful.It was a unique experience. Our host met us on the boat and was very welcoming and served us warming coffee on arrival. The breakfast the next day was great too. The bunks were... More

Traveling with 20 year old daughter and 23 year old son, I thought the four bunk room was great. Husband had a hard time with the close quarters - though the room had a very large bathroom! Kids loved the running path along the canal. Our son is 6'4" tall and had no problem moving around the room and common... More

We were looking for a place to stay in Stockholm by the water during the overnight kayaking trip. Being not especially fond of camping, I wanted a place by the water where we could keep the kayak close by, but also sleep in civilized conditions after a tiring day. This place fitted perfectly! Located just a short distance from several... More

Great choice for families. We had a four-berth cabin, which was reasonably spacious and good value in a generally very expensive city. The Monika is berthed in a nice neighborhood, with easy access to shops, buses and the metro. Right outside is a great running track, which goes along the canal and seems very popular with locals. If you check... More
