“Unique hotel in a great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Fantastic and charming hotel with very unique rooms and guest space. Located in a very quiet, residential area but very close to downtown, old town and public transportation. Staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

This is a great place to stay, its close to all public transportation, the rooms are clean and the staff is excellent. They have a wonderful breakfast . A beautiful patio and garden where I would sit and have my breakfast and feed the birds. The bathrooms are very modern and the beds were very comfortable. I really enjoyed my stay here and would recommend this place to anyone that is planning to stay in Stockholm for sightseeing.

I picked this hotel based on the positive reviews here on TripAdvisor and while I wasn't disappointed, I wasn't thrilled either. The hotel was charming but not all that user-friendly during our four night stay.

On the plus side, staff did exactly what they promised and gave my mother a really good, spacious room on the ground floor. She had a big accessible bathroom. The location was also superb (close to the underground, supermarkets and dining) and the building beautiful, with a courtyard out the front where you could relax/smoke (as some did.) There was also an outdoor seating area out the back but this was a bit in need of some weeding and a freshening up of the outdoor furniture.

Our room was on the ground floor also but the bathroom was so small it didn't even have room for a basin. Instead the basin was in the room, and had an automatic temperature controlled tap. This had three issues - sometimes the tap would turn on just because you got too close, the water wasn't cool to drink, and it wasn't hot enough for shaving. The shower/toilet was so narrow you could touch both side walls without even stretching your arms, but functionally it worked fine.

Our room was small and when it came to the final pack before departure we had to make the choice between taking turns or moving one case on to the bed. The furniture was not well suited to the room size in that a massive chest of drawers occupied more space than was appropriate. The only place to put your bags was on the coffee table or small desk chair. Power points were hard to reach and there weren't enough of them. I had to unplug the TV to charge my phone.

There was no bedside light on my side of the bed and I wasn't table to reach the light switch above the basin.

On Sunday the cleaning staff insisted on changing the sheets even though we asked them not to bother because 'Sunday is the day we have to change the sheets.'

Breakfast was served in the vaulted basement which got a bit crowded at busy times. The breakfast buffet was all cold food except for hard and soft boiled eggs. Every other buffet breakfast during our Sweden stay had a wider selection of foods and included warm dishes, which were not on offer here.

Accessibility-wise entry to the hotel is across a stone-cobbled courtyard so you have to carry your bags, not wheel them and there were no staff to help with bags. The steps down to the basement breakfast buffet where high and uneven. If you have mobility issues or are elderly I would suggest you stay somewhere else.

It was all OK and these are small grumbles but I would probably pick somewhere different next time, even though I loved the location and the free coffee, available all day.

Room Tip: Ask for a larger room.

Stayed here for four nights in August 2013. Located on Sodermalm on the West side, short walk from the Zinkendam tube station, and the popular Hornsgatan. Very peaceful location, but you can be at Slussen, Gamla Stan or T-Central within minutes so great for sight-seeing. We have a very comfortable room. The breakfasts are great and the hotel staff were incredibly helpful. We enjoyed the little lounge and terrace where we could take free coffee & tea and relax. Ask the staff for directions to Tanto Lund, the allotment gardens, just a short walk but definitely worth it. Would definitely use this hotel again as after going all over the city decided this was our favourite area. The Italian restaurant at the end of the street and near tube is very nice for a meal.

I really loved the overall atmosphere and look of the hotel and the beautiful inner court, but our room was way too small. The huge old-fashioned bed was lovely, but it filled the whole room. The bathroom was small too, but tidy and modern. The breakfast was delicious, and it was nice that there was free coffee/tea available in the lobby around the clock. The hotel was situated a bit far from the city centre but there is a tube station nearby.

The rooms--which are very small but clean and well-appointed--have character but the hotel lacks soul. The front desk staff is correct but is not friendly or helpful as one would expect in a small hotel. The same applies to the staff in charge of breakfast who never received guests with a "Good morning" or a smile in the morning and minded their business as if the place were McDonald's. Breakfast is included and good but lacks imagination: it could be served in Buenos Aires or Madrid because there is not a thing that reminds you of Sweden.
The bathroom is new but unbelievable small--think airplane small!-- and I am a 120 pound woman.
The location is great because it is not a touristy neighborhood which I appreciate but it takes quite a long walk to go to tourist attractions--from Old Town to museums like Vasa or Nordisk. We walked everywhere( but you better be fit) and took the metro several times--that is painfully expensive. Also, this is not the funky, popular side of Sodermalm--getting there is a 30-40 minute walk!
With so many options out there, I will definitely try a different hotel in my next visit to Stockholm.

The Hotel Hellstens Malmgard is very special. It is almost like a little castle. Each rooms is designed differently in a very nice old style. Some rooms are very small, some are narrow, but nicely decorated, clean and with new bathrooms.
It is in a very quiet area, but still close to the center of Stockholm. We always walked to see Stockholm. You can't park close to the hotel, but there are different options in the area.

Room Tip: Select the small room only, if you can live with very little space,
