The place is very central in the old town, not far from subway station "Gamlastan". We sat outside which was quite pleasant even after sunset as they turn on the heaters. Service was extremely slow, and staff were hardly coming to our side of the outdoor seating since, we had to go and talk to them to take the order,... More

Have you seen the new Disco in Engelen, it must be the best architecture in town. The music dose not need to change. It used to be popular any way. Why change a working concept, soul, Funck, 70s, 80s, etc. Some serving personal in colingen need to be changed. The new once seem to be more service oriented. The guards... More

Do avoid this place. Arrogant, ignorant staff. Racist and bad service. And today they even showed that they are stupid. Throwing out a Bulgarian female tourist (around 35-years old) thinking she was ordering drugs from the menu. Apparently you can be thrown out if you order the hash browns from their menu...

What more to say. The security on this place are truly awful. Not sure if they treat locals different than foreigners but shame on you.

The place is full of security, last night one came over and asked me to follow him. He said I was drunk, which was ridiculous, I was quiet all night, well behaved, just talking in the corner with a friend. I saw them doing this with a lot of people earlier, he just came up and asked me to leave... More

I see from the other reviews that there are mixed feelings about this place, and I can understand both opinions. The disco downstair is an eldorado for Cougars, but upstair there were several good live bands playing. I enjoyed the atmosphere very much, there were a big variety in people; old, middle age, younger and quite young. I guess this... More

In one sentence: Old, drunk (really drunk) people pretending/wishing/actually believing they're young. It's like the Silja Line or Viking Line ferries, only on dry land. Please avoid.

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighbourhood Profile
Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting: take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.
