We had a wonderful stay at Reisen. The location was great and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The breakfast service was extensive and well prepared. We stayed in a suite and it had a very good sitting room with TV and desk and comfortable seating. The hop on hop off bus was right outside the door which was... More

Located overlooking the water in Gamla Stan (Old Town) just steps from the Palace and the Djurgarden ferry port, the hotel's location cannot be beat. The rooms are of modest size. The wattage of the lamps is too small to facilitate reading. There is no safe. The closet is quite small. The bathroom fixtures are challenging and there is a... More

I stayed at this hotel in August 2016 with my boyfriend. The hotel is in an ideal location with everything within walking distance. There are so many great bars and restaurants in the area and everything you want to do is within walking distance. The room lefts a bit to be desired, but the view from our window was so... More

The location for visiting central Stockholm is excellent with easy access to most sights, the old town and boats and buses. Staff are really nice and friendly. The breakfast is excellent with a huge choice of hot and cold dishes. Rooms are quite small and they are in process of updating them so request a newly done up one.

The hotel is perfectly placed in the old town and it also faces the water. Great breakfast is included in the price. For those looking to watch costs, these breakfasts are essential--it means a smaller lunch can be had with significant savings. The hotel staff went out of their way to give directions and advice. I watched one staff work... More

We stayed for a week and booked an executive room. The room itself was of a good standard with a corner aspect enabling us to see the water in two directions. It was somewhat let down by the bathroom which was on the small side and could have done with some renovation. The staff were helpful and gave sensible advice... More

Very nice Hotel located in the OLD TOWN. Great position only a few meters from the Royal Palace opposite the ocean. We would not hesitate to stay there again and thoroughly recommend this hotel where the staff are very friendly. The rooms are not large but are comfortable with an update needed but never the less the position and price... More

There are lots of good things to be said about the First Reisen and only one negative. Taking the negative first, the hotel decor is old and tired and dark, and if what you want is modern, stylish accommodation, go somewhere else. But if you want a really well thought-through travel hotel with really great service, in a good location... More

This is our favorite go to hotel in Stockholm.The location without a doubt is fantastic--- on the water and in Old Town! Doesn't get any better. Most of the front desk staff are friendly and offer superb service. The problem is the rooms.....they... 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.
