This is a hotel far from the standard business hotels one is used to. Loads of personality, although a bit overstuffed to my liking. I got room number 26 overlooking the street. It is marginally better than the ones overlooking the alleys. Very small, but nicely decorated. Problem is that it is far from adequate when it comes to the following: mattress bumpy and rather uncomfortable, part of shower door missing with a resulting wet bathroom floor, shower head out of order, lack of water pressure, and you can hear a pin drop in the street outside and the neighbours breathe. It is like sleeping in a dormitory. One very good thing though, the telly has an option of attaching a memory stick so you can play your films from files like AVI, mkv, mp4 etc. Good internet-speed. Breakfast served in the reception area, basic and OK.
It gets a rating three only because the location and charm.
Will I stay here again? Not until they have upgraded the aforementioned flaws.

- The Lord Nelson Hotel is an intimate, friendly and pleasant hotel right in the heart of Gamla Stan, Stockholm’s Old Town. You find the hotel on the main street, close to the city centre and all the capital’s sights and attractions.

All rooms have been designed and decorated to resemble cabins on a ship. The building dates from the 17th century and at just under six metres wide, this property is undoubtedly Sweden’s narrowest hotel.
