We came Friday evening and had their lovely 'julbord' that offered all the traditional ingredients of a Swedish Christmas dinner. Many different variations of salmon and herring and cold cuts etc. My favorite was the 'laxröra' and the sweets 'knäck' and licorice fugde. We stayed in a room with a view of the docks that was very nice. The staff... More

A very enjoyable trip out to Waxholm through the Swedish archipelago. The boat ride no longer than 35mins or two glasses of wine (served on the boat). You come to this fantastic restaurant, which is situated in the prime location of the key. The restaurant is on the first floor of the Waxholm Hotel. Just a 30sec walk from the... More

The location and the view over the harbor is as about the only nice thing you can say about this hotel. The rooms are quite small, but nicely decorated. But we had to wait for about two hours to gain access to our room. The receptionist, who, by the way, was not too service minded, told us that the room... More

Hotel overlooks the water - lovely view from the room. however upper floor rooms have limited headroom, and no lift, therefore all luggage etc has to be carried up 3 flights of stairs. breakfast is OK, but can often be overcooked if not busy.

Waxholms Hotel is a quirky hotel, right on the harbour front in Vaxholm. We had a room with a small balcony directly overlooking the harbour that provided us with a few hours of entertainment just watching the hustle and bustle below. Despite overlooking the very busy harbour we weren't disturbed by the noise and had a good night's sleep. The... More

We stayed at the hotel for a research meeting. The environment is stylish yet peaceful with the archipelago around. Excellent well equipt conference rooms and high class food. A nice lounge to relax in and beatiful surroundings to have a stroll. Close to the city and I do recommend going there by the boat. Sceneric!

Very nice, old fashioned hotel. Room was a bit small but was clean and had everything we needed, though we couldn't really open the window as it was directly next to the vent from the kitchen. We didn't eat in the hotel, though the restaurant looked very nice. There is no parking for guests at the moment here and it's... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The beautiful setting of the hotel offers fantastic views over the bay Vaxholmsfjärden and the fortress Kastellet. Our 42 rooms offer good comfort and you will enjoy the food in our restaurant, take part in your conference while the ships drift past outside the window. We recommend you to come here at th four most fascinating times of the year: summer autumn, winter and spring. In the summer, Vaxholms is boiling. Boats come and go around the clock, the bridge is never still. The restaurants are crowded, the bay makes a vivid scenery. The whole place is seeting with life and joy ... more   less
