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.
A square in Gamla Stan, the oldest square in Stockholm. We saw people drinking from the well. We saw buildings Stortoget 22-14, colourful and impressive. Saw the Nobel Museum. Saw the alleys stretching out from Stortorget in all cardinal directions. People kept on coming and going. A nice place to be in when in Stockholm.
This very small sculpture is a bit hard to find, but if you look for the Finnish church close to the castle, you will find it in their yard. If possible go there when it is dark. Then a spotlight will shine on the boy and make it even more nice.
The church stands tall and high over other buildings in Gamla Stan. Was built to cater to the German community who exists in Stockholm. Look see, admire and be inspired to enter the church. Stay calm and peaceful.
We had meatballs, pork cheeks and a beetroot and goat cheese starter - everything delicious, and I think a great first experience of the famous Swedish meatballs! Also service was very nice and the place very cozy.
You are not afraid of the bloody vickings?
Come and the town cried will anounce you. Take place on the long wood table and drink, eat. The middle ages is colling for you. The food is good you will lost yourself on the brevage menu but do not be afraid everything is tasty. Some hold music from the dark age...

Delicious set menu of 5 stylish courses, high standard of quality and quite reasonable prices.
What I enjoyed the most was the perfect combination of all different flavours in every single dish. Great wines too.
Highly recommend this restaurant.
On our recent visit to Stockholm we returned of course to The Hairy Pig! And again it gave us a reason to love it even more!!!!!!! The tasty tapas, the beautiful and cozy place,the friendly staff!!! Everything was perfect for one more time.... I can’t wait to go back to the best piggy ever !
This is a very quaint, historic hotel boasting an amazing display of naval memorabilia. Rooms are quite snug but lets face it, you will spending all your time wandering the streets of Old Town (shopping is very touristy), visiting the Royal Palace, eating out - I recommend Slinger Bulten, named after a dubious character, it literally translates to "Slippery Fish"....
The family hotel is in the center of Stockholm. The family members make you feel like part of their family and are very helpful with tourist info. They even helped us get to taxi with our luggage.The taxi was a block away. Due to time of day the street was a pedestrians walkway.
"Fabulous location with lovely staff- beware of the church bells"

I will start with the great- the location (in medieval Gamla Stan) could not be better. It is an incredibly charming area right in the heart of the city and you can easily walk to the Kings Garden, sightseeing boats, Sodermalm etc.. The staff was lovely- very helpful. In addition, for those who are Jewish Sabbath-observers, the keys are the...
You may know the Scandic chain for mid-range, anonymous hotels with not much personality, but this one is different.
I think Scandic took over the place recently and they can't really redo much as it is situated in Stockholm's old centre ("Gamla Stan") surrounded by old 17th century houses and cobble stone streets.
So apart from the ghastly modern looking...
stayed here for 2 nights while in stockholm- very helpful staff, convenient location (tho not may not be accessible by taxi) place has a lot of charm, history which makes it a fun place to stay ...note beware of pickpocket in the area!..
