Neighborhood
Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting: take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.

Location is south of Gamla Stan so requires walking towards the Palace, Parliament, public square, train station, and commercial shopping. Can take Metro station or Uber to go further north. Good breakfast. Helpful reception staff. Room small but alright. Bathroom spotless.

Location is excellent between Södermalm and Norrmalm. Also, the side street is relatively quiet for Gamla Stan. It’s a Scandic, so no luxury, but the basic stuff works. The room was okay, however it shows some signs of wear - maybe time for a slight renovation? Breakfast room is

Scandic Gamla Stan was one of the best hotels we stayed at in Scandinavia. The Staff were excellent, the Manager found a car hire company that was open on Easter Monday, after the company we had already booked and paid for a car would not open. Facilities recently upgraded. The
