We chose this hotel as we were only going to be in Stockholm for one night and it's ideally located for exploring Gamla Stan. Having read the reviews we expected the room might be a bit tired looking but were okay with this. Unfortunately we were given a room right behind reception on the ground floor. The room itself was... More

We loved this hotel. Comfortable beds, the best breakfast ever and great service. It's off the beaten path (as much as that's possible in Gamla Stan), but very close to shops and restaurants. It's also close to Hop on Hop off bus/boat stations and island hopping/touring ferries. 24-hour parking is about 1/2 mile away next to the Riddarholm Church. You... More

The hotel is a nice small one, very central in Gamla Stan. Metro is 3 minutes on foot. Perfect location for visiting. Breakfast with quite a good choise, also gluten free bread and cerals :-) The rooms on the lower floors (I was on 1st floor) are a bit darker (less light coming through the window) than those on the...

The hotel is ideally placed in the old city, not more than 10 minutes from the palace, boat tours and as many restaurants as you can afford. After reading several reviews, we were a little concerned about what size the room would be, but our standard room had plenty of space and was beautifully decorated. The staff were very helpful...

The hotel location is amazing. Our main idea of travelling to Stockholm was to spend time in Gamla Stan/ old town and from that point of view, the location was amazing. It was also only a 10-15 min walk to the central station. The hotel staff was very friendly. The room was clean, the breakfast awesome and everything was good.... More

This is what I would call a boutique hotel, old but well maintained, in an excellent location for exploring Stockholm's Old Town. There were 3 of us occupying 1-2 rooms over a 5-night period. Due to one of our party sustaining an injury and ending up in the hospital, we had to juggle rooms and extend our stay beyond what... More

This was a comfortable hotel in an old building on the edge of gamla Stan. The staff were very helpful. Breakfasts were great.

Stayed here for two nights for my wife's 40th Birthday. I phoned the day before to arrange a bottle of champagne to be in our room on arrival only to be informed that the hotel didn't have an alcohol licence. For a big hotel chain such as Scandic I find that enormously surprising and something they should perhaps mention on... More

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighborhood Profile
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.
