Cannot beat the location, smack in the centre of downtown Stockholm, a short walk from the old town and principal attractions as well as from various other funky and interesting neighbourhoods. The staff were all young, friendly and helpful, and spoke perfect English. Their restaurant recommendations were very good. The room, on the fifth floor, overlooking the street, was spacious and comfortable, with lots of light, a large state-of-the-art TV, hairdryer, good WIFI connection, and plenty of hanging space. The bathroom was spotless. The bed was comfortable, although the mattress was a tad too soft for our liking. Breakfast was perfectly adequate, cold cuts, vegetables, pate, bread, crackers, jam, marmalade, etc. We had looked at various hotels before choosing this one, and you can't beat the price. It was our first visit to Stockholm and we fell in love with the city. Our stay at this warm and comfortable hotel certainly contributed to the good impression. We would definitely stay here on a future visit to Sweden.
- 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
