The best part about Hotel Skeppsholmen is the location on the island. Rather than feeling isolated from central Stockholm, it feels like a private sanctuary. We were in Stockholm for four days so we had time to walk everywhere while sightseeing the city. It's only about 500 metres from the hotel to the bridge at the end of the island. It takes about 25 minutes to walk to the old town. There is also a ferry that leaves from about 50 metres from the hotel door.
We enjoyed walking along the island paths each day and seeing all the ducks with ducklings (including witnessing six ducklings jumping out of their nest in a tree for the first time. Their mother was on the ground waiting for them to jump, one by one, the 6 or so metres to the ground - scary but real nature in action!!).
The room we had was sunny & spacious. It was great to have the shutters since the sun rises at about 3.30am at this time of the year. It is airconditioned, but the windows can be opened so that works well too.
The only disappointment about the room was the bathroom. It looks great, but doesn't function so well. I had one shower using the main showerhead (I used the hand held shower hose the rest of the time) and ended up with water all over the bathroom room floor and over the toilet. There is no door on the shower, just a door on the bathroom so it's probably meant to be a "wet room". But a wet room isn't so practical when you are sharing a bathroom (with my husband) and he didn't appreciate using a soaking bathroom after me. A door on the shower would solve this problem.
The staff were extremely polite and they were very warm and helpful at check in and check out.
We really enjoyed our stay here.
