We stayed in this unusual hotel for four nights, quite an experience. The location is fabulous, on the island of Langholmen, a short distance by a small bridge to the rest of Stockholm. We had a twin room, a rare facility, there appeared to be only two of these on each of the three floors. The whole place has been carefully re-fitted, very comfortable rooms, if slightly on the small size, but
then it was originally a prison until 1975! Good hot showers. We had a room on the ground floor, with the original guard house outside, including a model guard and well lit at night.
Our Swedish friends thought it was expensive for what we got. We found that Stockholm, by English standards, is a very expensive city to stay in, but we thought we had a really good place to stay for our money. The island is worth a walk around. A beach, wooded walks, and community gardens which we thought were rather like allotments. Breakfast was a diverse spread of meats, cheeses, yogurts, fruit, crispbreads, rye bread, and excellent coffee. Swedish tea is a weak teabag in a mug of hot water thing. Best avoided. Great place, would stay there again.
