“A very special hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

This is a super place: a peaceful and beautiful location, wonderful staff and terrific food. We spent 4 nights here with our 7 year old daughter and we would love to return. The breakfast is fabulous (mmm, those cinnamon buns!) and we would recommend hotel restaurant for superb dinners too.

The hotel is well-located for visiting the museums on Djurgarden (a short ferry trip from outside the hotel) and the excellent Moderna Museet is virtually next door.

We had a lovely weekend stay at Hotel Skeppsholmen. We will definitely return in summer time. The location is peaceful. The center is 10-15 minutes away on foot. We preferred the ferry which runs every 15 (or 20) minute to Slussen/Djurgården. The ferry stop is just a around the corner from the hotel's main entrance. The breakfast buffet was tasty, good selection (scandinavian style) and the dinner is worth a try too!

from this stylish hotel you have a view at the water and skyline of Stockholm. It is quiet and the staff is friendly and helpful. from here it is a short walk to the city center. The breakfast is included and lovely with delicous fresh bread. We had the cheapest room which is still big enough with modern bathroom. The double bed is not that big so be aware when you go with a friend.

We stayed here in July 2012, when the evenings were long and we could enjoy our meals sitting outside in the garden or on the patio. The hotel’s location is excellent – on a quiet island in a heritage precinct, within walking distance of the CBD and with very frequent bus and ferry public transport available nearby. Our room was outstanding (modern and comfortable) with large windows opening across a treed lawn to the water. Meals were excellent. Staff were very helpful. While not inexpensive, the overall experience represented very good value.

We had a wonderful long weekend stay in Stockholm. Before deciding which hotel to book, we looked at the various reviews. It was hard to pick one, but as always our tripadvisor friends did not let us down. This is truly a very friendly, clean and beautiful hotel. Stylish, but not overly so. Friendly staff and not insincere.

The hotel is located bang in the middle of Stockholm, but on a smaller island at the waterfront. Wonderful views of the water and boats and when we were there autumn was at its peak. Leaves turning, beautiful red and yellow colours on the trees close to the hotel (the Skeppsholmen island has quite a lot of trees, next to a number of museums and other nice old buildings). On one side of the island, you can see Gamla Stan, the Royal Palace and Södermalm. On the other side"(of the island, not the hotel), you have a view of Djurgarden and Östermalm with its gorgeous Strandvägen.

It is not cheap, but also not outrageously expensive. So, all in all, we were very happy with our choice.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the south have more of a view than the others.

Apart from minor problems (TV set remote control non properly working, bathroom door non properly closing) the hotel is in a very good location in the heart of Stockholm, rooms are "stylish", clean and comfortable (the one assigned to us was a little small, but from the map of the floor the others seem to be bigger) and the breakfast is really rich. Staff was helpful in finding information to make our stay as much relaxing and enjoyable as possible.
