I thought this place was great for the price and I would definitely return. It is in a pretty central location with pleasant walks to the VASA museum, Gamla Stan and other locations of interest. The rooms were very clean and the shower was excellent, breakfast was decent, and i really liked the maritime theme which was beautifully done so you had the feeling of walking round the corridors of a ship. I stayed Friday/ Saturday and as others note you can hear a nightclub. I had a room for £60 which was the cheapest option and they warned me to bring ear plugs so I fully expected the worst. I was pleasantly surprised. Yes you can hear the club but I did not find it too bad for sleeping just not perfect silence.
All in all I was very happy with my experience and would stay again if I wanted to keep the cost of accommodation down. I have now stayed in five hotels in Stockholm and would rate this pretty highly. The ones on the top of my list were both more expensive.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Örlogshotellet was founded in 1908 by Queen Victoria (wife of King Gustaf V Adolf). The purpose was to give young sailors of the Royal Swedish Navy, an opportunity to stay on land when visiting Stockholm. And at a very friendly price too. Örlogshotellet has, over the years, become more and more popular, not only among military personell. Allthough most of our guests work for, or are guests to, the Swedish Defence. Örlogshotellet offers shower/WC and TV in all rooms. All housed in a very centraly located 1920's building. There are about 40 restaurants, a number of cafees and theatres/cinemas, just around the corner. Breakfast is served daily. ... more less
