Reviewed June 30, 2012

This converted ship is located in the absolute center of Stockholm = Excellent location.
But the cabins are VERY small and what is really bad, is the combined toilet and shower. You take a shower basicallly in the toilet basin and the floor in the bath room gets totally wet.
Breakfast is good nothing very special. Don´t tell the staff that you do not like something because you´ll get a rough answer

What a fantastic place to stay! Yes the rooms are small, but they are perfectly adequate, clean, and well equipped. The breakfasts are great, and the views and location are just perfect. Just a short stroll to Gamla Stan one way, and across the bridge to Södermalm the other. As the boat was once owned by Barbara Hutton, there is lots of history and memorabilia.

It rained constantly while we were there so we decided to try the restaurant rather than go out, and this too was a very pleasant surprise, as we had no preconceived expectations. Well prepared high quality traditional Swedish food at a very reasonable price (they have a discount for residents) with delightful service. I would certainly stay AND eat there again and recommend to anyone else visiting Stockholm. It is unique and like nowhere else. A definite 5!

We went here for dinner on a beautiful sunny evening, the food was good quality and nice traditional Swedish style. The location and the views are gorgeous, definantely worth a visit.

Well, I found out I could still get up into a bunk bed...this time we stayed on the water side. As usual, service and food was excellent. The staff in this place is always so multilingual and so helpful...the breakfast is hard to beat, and the location is superb . The only cautionary note-if you weigh more than 200 pounds, you will not like the small rooms; showers, and bathrooms.

Room Tip: If you can't handle a short walk to the train station (half mile), be prepared for the taxis. T...

In this city of water, where better to sleep than on a boat! Located in the quiet area of Riddarholmen, it is literally less than 5 minutes to the amazing streets of Gamla Stan, full of great boutiques and eateries. You can walk across the bridge and be in either Sodermalm to the south or north to City Hall beside the central bus & train stations, in 10 minutes. It is central to all of the main tourist attractions but is off by itself in a quiet spot on the water. Our cabin was perfect - two bunks with a closet, desk and chair in the main room and a very well appointed en-suite with a great shower. Not a lot of space, but as we were only sleeping and washing there, it was never a problem. The staff were very helpful and friendly, there is a computer available and the breakfast buffet was a wonderful way to start the day. You can sit out on deck and there are a few places to sit and play cards or have a drink, if you want to. Loved it and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Stockholm.

This is a well placed base for staying in central Stockholm - easy walking to the old town and city districts. Not expensive for Sweden & lots of character, cosy but small cabins and very compact en-suites. Restaurant serves great freshly cooked meals that are good value - but is closed on Sundays and Mondays. Housekeeping is of a high standard and everywhere is very clean. Enjoyed staying here. There is a sauna in the lower deck!

Room Tip: You might want to ask for a cabin on the side with a water view?

Malardrottningen Hotel is in fact Barbara Huttons former yacht. The ship is located at Riddarholmen, a very central location. Short walking distance to The Old City and rest of the City Centre of Stockholm.
The hotel-ship is very charming and in good shape. The breakfast is varied and good.
