We traveled to Amsterdam, Oslo, Stockholm, Tallin, Helsinki and Copenhagen for our vacation this year and even thou each place has its own charm, if we had to choose one as our favorite it has to be Stockholm. The hotel we stayed in, First Hotel Reisen, has a perfect location in Gamla Stan by the Royal Palace. The room was...

We stayed in for five nights in a standard double, which was small but well appointed. Hotel Reisen is on the waterfront in Gamla Stan, the old town. The location is perfect for visitors who want to walk to the main sights and go on the ferries or canal boat rides. The breakfast that was included in our room rate...

We stayed two nights in Stockholm at this hotel. The location is near the harbor and convenient. We were walking distance to the castle and the tour bus (hop on/hop off). The staff was very friendly and helpful. But the room was just average (see photo). There was a slight odor in the hotel which I could not identify. The...

Over the course of 10 days, we stayed in Stockholm and went to other parts of Sweden 3 times. Each time we came back to First Hotel Reisen and were thoroughly pleased. On the pro side: fabulous location, good sized room (we did upgrade), nice amenities, nice breakfast, clean rooms, and helpful front desk staff. There were some of the...

I stayed at this hotel with my partner in June and has probably one of the worst experiences ever. We were put in room 114 which was above the bar and restaurant. We arrived back at the room at 11.30pm and it was quite loud below us. We thought the music would stop but it didn't shut off until 3AM....

Dear guest, First of all I would like to apologize for the inconvenience caused with the music in the bar which disturbed your sleep and stay. It should of course have been lowered and for this we are all very sorry. I received your e-mail last week and replied to your hotmail address on 28th June with a compensation offer....

This is the second time we stayed at Reisen, and it was just as wonderful as last year. From the moment we walked in to the time we left we were treated like Kings. All of the staff is very attentive to guests, professional and helpful. The rooms are quite spacious, charming and very tidy. Don’t forget to use the...

This hotel is ideally located and the lobby looks cool. The rooms are dated and the staff acts like they are doing you a favor by helping even after multiple requests. We had an in-room sauna, which was a nice feature. I'd give it a solid C if you can ignore the staff.

Although the location is fabulous & lobby is charming and the staff warm and welcoming, the room itself was very uncomfortable -- never have had such a soft, mushy mattress; with no a/c and the window open, the noise of the street made it impossible to sleep. There was no bellboy available for checkin -- this did not bother us...

Love the position of this hotel but unfortunately due to the bar downstairs it is very noisy at night. The hotel does not have air conditioning and although there are fans, difficult to sleep with the noise from the street outside. No area for residents of the hotel to have a drink at night - only the public bar which...

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.
