We stayed for 2 nights in the boat. Friendly staff, delicious breakfast were impressive. The free coffee is also a plus. The hotel is near the metro station, we can easily get any where in the city. We also enjoy the time when walking along the riverside nearby :)

We had a great time at the Hotel. Traveling with two little kids is challenging and they did like to climb up and down the ladders of the Ship and inside the room. Good bathroom, best breakfast we had on our Europe trip. Friendly service. One waring though: This hotel is not suitable for lesser mobile or elderly guests as... More

When we were planning our trip for Stockholm, I chose MS Monika to be our hotel for 2 nights! Simply because it looks fun to stay in a boat and looking at their pictures makes me feel more excited to sleep and stay there. I wasn't disappointed, we had fun!The only challenge was on how to carry our luggages using... More

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

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!
