We stayed at the Victory in Stockholm for 3 nights, June 19, 20, and 21. It was marvelous! We chose the Captain Johansson deluxe suite, which was spacious and lovely. Actually, staying in the Victory is like staying in a boutique museum -- many amazing nautical artifacts, including ancient pipes and a letter penned by Admiral Nelson. I'm sure that many rooms are small, but I urge any travelers to splurge for the deluxe suite. It was large, including a dining table, a sitting room, a bedroom, and a very modern and pretty bathroom including a jacuzzi tub in addition to the shower. It was like having our own little apartment in Stockholm's Gamla Stan (Old Town), within walking distance to shops, restaurants, etc.
Even more great, i left a pair of my favorite sandals there. I emailed them when I got home, and asked if I had left them. They replied yes, and within two weeks they arrived in my mailbox. Wow! I would definitely recommend this hotel without qualification.

Room Tip: Captain Johansson's suite was great. We didn't see any other rooms, but this one was lovely

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Victory very much. The location is wonderful. We loved walking about Gamla Stan and exploring all the little cafes and stores. The Victory is on one of the quieter streets but not out of the way. It has a wonderful restaurant attached where we were able to eat outside and have pork barbecue on Saturday night.

Our room overlooked the restaurant, which I enjoyed. The room was small, but I have seen smaller. It did have air conditioning and Wifi worked great. The service was good. We will definitely stay at the Victory again.

Room Tip: Try to get a larger room. Facing the courtyard was nice.

Very nice hotel in the Gamla Stan area of Stockholm. This place is full of antiques and character. The rooms were small but clean and quiet. They had chocolate "golden dollars" for the customers that I thought was a very nice touch. Breakfast was good.

Very nice hotel: full of antique pieces mostly bronze details from ships, wooden chests and etc. Located in Gamla Stan ( old town) with close proximity to all attractions, very quiet.
We had an attic room on the top floor, full of character but with a sizable modern and spotless bathroom. The breakfast was good with decent varieties of everything. Unfortunately we did not have enough time to visit the sauna.
Definatelly will be happy to come back.

We stayed in one of the properties (Collector's) flat's off the mail plaza. What a great place. Large bedroom, kitchen, living room and new bath with a washer and dryer. Great food and bars all around the old town area. Central location to see all of Stockholm, many of the boat trips are two blocks away............only way to go. If you have a family it is the only way to go.

Room Tip: Get a flat that opens to the plaza

This is a well situated hotel on Gamla Stan, the old town part of Stockholm. Having used it before, about 10 years ago, we went back for the first time since my wife became wheelchair bound and stayed for 3 nights. The staff were all extremely helpful both before we arrived and during our stay with nothing being too much trouble for them. Our room was easily accessible, spacious and well equipped with a good sized en suite. There were a wide range of things to choose from for breakfast and you could have as much as you liked.
I would not hesitate to use this hotel on any further trips to Stockholm.

We stayed for three nights in this well situated hotel in Gamla Stan, the old town in Stockholm. The room was spacious and well equipped with a good sized en suite. The breakfast was generous, with a wide range of items to choose from, I can recommend the salmon (gravadlax) and scrambled eggs. there was even a gluten free muesli which was unexpected. All the breakfast items were replenished constantly so you didn't need to wait around and nothing ever ran out. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. You only had to step out of the door to find yourself only feet from all the sights, the cathedral, shops, royal palace etc. There was an excellent choice of restaurants in the vicinity. We would recommend it for a stay in central Stockholm. The only downside was that all the Nelson and maritime related artefacts which gave the hotel character, also gave the impression of staying in a slightly musty museum!
