“Quiet, beautiful, perfect”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

We have stayed in four hotels in Stockholm, all very nice. But now that we have found Hotel Skeppsholmen, we will always stay here. We love the area with the semi-woods and water. The ferry stop is almost outside the door so it is easy to get to Djurgården and Gamla Stan. It is a nice walk to the centre, over the bridge. Our room was spacious and immaculate. The toiletries are first rate, and so is the bathroom. You receive a warm welcome,including a package of delicious caramel candy. The elevator is a gem. The breakfast superb. You can easily exit the hotel without going through the lobby using your door key. Really, a stone's throw away are the Modern Museum and the Architectural Museum. Cafe Blom in the latter serves a very good soup and sandwich lunch at a very reasonable price. Of course, for upmarket dining, the hotel's restaurant is super. We were here in winter, which is a nice time to visit as there are many fewer tourists. Still, we look forward to coming here in the summer so we can enjoy the terrace. Mycket bra, Hotel Skeppsholmen.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for this lovely review!
Very glad to read that we are your favourite hotel in Stockholm.
We are very happy to be on this amazing island in the city centre.

I and my team hope to welcome you back during summer and then you can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner on our terrace and if you play tennis you can try our out door tennis court which is situated next to the water and is the first out door tennis court in Sweden, it was built by King Oscar II 1882.

Best,

We stayed for a long weekend in November. We were made instantly welcome and looked after very well throughout our stay. Our sea view room was lovely - very peaceful, beautiful views and the beds were very, very comfortable. Breakfast was superb - delicious and beautifully presented with a fun and relaxing atmosphere in the dining room. Lovely location just a 10 minute walk from the main city with lovely views.

Room Tip: Go for a room on the upper floors with sea views and a bath

I don't think I have ever felt so at home in a hotel before. Skeppsholmen is located slap in the middle of Stockholm but feels a world away from the city. Catch the ferry and you're right in the middle of everything, but walk around the Island and everything is romantic, tranquil and sleepy.

I arrived on Thursday morning, had a wonderful breakfast and did some work in the hotel restaurant. I asked the receptionist to book me a taxi to work, but she suggested the ferry as a better alternative. Fell in love with the place about then and hope to be back soon. The place is magical, the architecture and modern art museums behind the hotel are fantastic. Really sad to leave.

Was here in autumn under the yellowing leaves of Skeppsholmen. What a hotel and what a location. Peaceful, serene but accessible. It was really heaven on earth. Nice and cozy rooms with nice a nice bath. Love those Byredo products. Breakfast was perfect.

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.
