Whenever you are in Stockholm, this is where to stay. The view from the upper deck all day and all night is beautiful. The atmosphere at the ship is great, and the staff is friendly and helpful. The location is worth gold. The rooms are very differently decorated. At our latest stay, we had a problem with the upper bunk... More

This is a fun hotel experience. It's not the most lavish or spacious, in fact the rooms are pretty small because it's an old yacht, but it's clean and entertaining with good linens and has a fabulous location. They serve a nice breakfast with a great view and the service is top notch.

Stayed for a few nights and at first was shocked by the small size of the room. But they are converted cabins, so there's not much they can do about that. The breakfast was above average and the staff were accommodating and friendly. Located as close to the old city as it is possible to get, and the only negatives... More

Great location with super friendly front desk staff. Clean and neat. Small rooms - what else can be expected on a boat but the perfect stay-over-a-few-nights hotel for one person. Lovely to wake up to the sound of the waves rippling against the boat. Very central and nice breakfast buffet. Only-the-kitchen-staff away from a 5 stars review...

I was looking forward to staying here because it seemed like a novel experience. The location is excellent and places you right in the old part of the city. Room cleaning was good and the breakfast was also good. However there are a number of problems. The first big problem occurred right after I arrived. I decided to check out... More

The yacht Mälardrottningen, once the property of heiress Barbara Hutton is situated in the absolute center of Stockholm. Moored at an island called Riddarholmen. Yet the place is very peaceful as there is very little traffic around. The view over the city ad water is absolute magnificient! Cabins are small, but bunks are comfortable, only drawback is that the top... More

Centrally situated in Gamla Stan, a good location in a quiet area (apart from the workers on the quayside starting drilling at 7.15am). Excellent staff, food very good. Sitting on deck watching the sun go down was brilliant. Rooms small, but well laid out. Some problems with WC, which stopped flushing, were sorted within the hour. A very good base... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights passing through Stockholm for something different and were very happy with the accomodation and the location. Exceeded expectations. Great location behind Riddarholmen and we were able to walk to and from Central Station with luggage. Cabin had bunks which were comfortable though of course, smaller than a regular hotel room, as you... More

This hotel has a wonderful location beside the old town. The room or stateroom was quite nice as was the breakfast. Walking in the ship e.g. to the restaurant was a bit cumbersome with need to always go down to the lobby in between. There seemed to be always the smell of diesel in the gangway, also outside the room's... 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.
