We stayed in the First Hotel Reisen for four nights during our two week trip to Scandinavia. I would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone looking to book. Very well located in Gamla Stan (the old town), which was my favorite neighborhood in Stockholm. Wonderful restaurants nearby and easily accessible via the metro. The room was spacious and clean, bedding... More

We had stayed in this hotel about 15 years ago and had good memories so stayed again for three nights. The main plus point is the hotel's location, on the waterfront near the Royal Palace and right in the centre of all the attractions. This time having driven from the UK finding the hotel through all the road works and... More

Located in Gamla Stan, this is a great local hotel. We loved the staff and the room faced out on the water. The breakfasts are comprehensive and offer multiple varieties of fruits, meats, and cereals. The shower is powerful for those who enjoy strong ones. The beds were extremely comfortable. It is a great location from which to venture out... More

We stayed in a 6th floor jacuzzi suite with our children in single beds in the living room. Really couldn't fault it. Good room, great view, great location and very good inclusive breakfast. A little noisy at ~5am in the morning due to refuse collection. Would strongly recommend

The good. The hotel is in a great location in Gamla Stan. The old town is steps away, the ferry at your door and most sights within walking distance. The breakfast (Included in price) was substantial and good quality The bad The rooms are small. The decor is ancient and the fittings and furniture tired and tatty. The bathroom in... More

Liked the location, service and breakfast but is not at all satisfied with the standard of the rooms. The rooms is well used and bathrooms feels outdated. The breakfast has all that you need and the service was really good.

We planned a two days stay at First Hotel Reisen and booked an 'executive' room. The low standard of the room and the poor and dirty bathroom made us to check out already the next morning. With a room price of SEK 3750,- a night, this hotel has the worst quality price ratio ever.

Near the water's edge in the beautiful old town of Stockholm and very close to all the sights. Excellent breakfast (didn't eat any other meals here). Good free wifi. Lovely staff and service. Rooms clean and comfortable but not luxurious. Beds comfortable. We had 2 rooms next to each other, one standard (v small) and one executive (slightly bigger), both... More

Great location and sea views, with easy access to all the attractions that Stockholm has to offer. Everything was done well, but the hotel would benefit from a refresh. The decor was perfectly comfortable but a little dated.

Small room, could do with a bit of an update, but you expect that in a older building in Europe. The room was quiet . The hotel is in a great location in Gamla Stan, we had a lovely view of the harbour. Excellent service from the reception and breakfast staff especially Johan, thanks for the restaurant recommendations. Would recommend

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.
