Owner description: The Old Town, unsurprisingly, is the oldest part of Stockholm. It's certainly the tourist's go-to destination, but that doesn’t detract from its architectural and otherwise urban beauty.

Reviewed January 22, 2013

Beautiful cobbled streets, little lanterns in the snow, and the smell of hot wine: it's a wonderful place to be at Christmas.

“nice afternoon”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

It's worth seeing, there are lots of great little streets. It can be a bit of touristy on the main streets with tons of shops and restaurants but still worth exploring the small island.

“Atmospheric”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

Although the Old Town is a very popular tourist area it did not feel overcrowded or too tourisy. It has a wide variety of independent shops and places to eat and drink. You felt completely safe walking around the area even late at night

“This is a very enjoyable section of the city with many restaurant choices”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

The restaurant choices are wide ranging and the weekend food market is a real treat. There is a metro stop for old town which applies to the red or green lines.
