I booked this place at first hand, because I wanted to stay somewhere extraordinary, what on the other hand somehow fits to the place I was going to. Therefor a boat seemed to be the perfect place in Stockholm, surrounded by water. I was really happy, that I tried this out. The Hostel is a unique place, full of fancy-maritime/sea-decorations...

The Red Boat is a hotel/hostel in two old boats. The reception/lobby/restaurant/breakfast is on the first boat arriving from the city (Gamla Stan = Old City). The environment is what friend of old boats like. All people you meet here are very friendly. Once I had the Captain´s room and great view. This time, I had to climb down in... More

The boat is beautiful. Outside, inside so awesome. But! Be warned, the hostel "offers" dinner. The first night we went to order we were told that the guy working was too busy and wouldn't be able to do it. Fair enough. The second night we ordered, and managed to get food. Straight after us though he told every single visitor... More

The sheer thought of living on a boat, and the beautiful view is motivation enough to stay here. The dorm rooms are OK and they serve the exact purpose they have been devised. The breakfast is wholesome. In all, a great experience to stay here. Also the staff here are very caring, so you wouldn't have any problems whatsoever.

It seems like you can't get anything better for the money in Stockholm. If you cannot sleep at a dorm room, like me, this is one of a very few options. Don't know how is is in a colder seasons, but in August it was so pleasant to sit on the deck in the night with a glass of wine..!... More

A great and inexpensive place to stay, but a little noise at night along the dock. Great location!!! just minutes from the old town, the ferry and the Subway. Stayed in the hostel part and for 300 kroners a night, one can not beat the price. Clean rooms and comfortable beds. Super friendly staff. My only complaint is that it... More

The Hostel is only a few walkingminutes away from the old town, is directly on a pier opposite to the townhall. A unique location if you do not expect too much comfort. The cabins are partly equipped with bunk beds . Shared showers and toilets are located on the leading side, some cabins are equipped separately with shower and toilet.I... More

We wanted value for money - a family of 4 and we didn't want to splurge £300 a night on a mediocre hotel when we were out sightseeing all day. The boat worked really well for a number of reasons. 1. Great location. Opposite the City Hall (major landmark) and close to ferry crossings and the tube. 2. Reasonable breakfast... More

Staying in Mariatorget

Neighborhood Profile
Mariatorget
This rather quiet neighborhood revolves around a postcard-like park with a dramatic fountain in its center and is definitely one of Stockholm’s showcase neighborhoods. Mariatorget, a central residential area, is the best Stockholm has to offer when it comes to juxtaposing architectural masterpieces with sophisticated art galleries, coffee shops and bars. Stockholmers love to spend their weekends in the park or one of the nearby coffee shops, so come to Mariatorget to meet the locals. The northern part of Mariatorget boasts historic buildings, beautiful cobblestone streets, and one of Stockholm’s best observation decks, Monteliusvägen, from where you can see an amazing view of the city hall and Stockholm’s old town.
