Reviewed 25 May 2017

I have been staying in this hotel nearly every week for the last 6 months and they have looked after me extremely well. So well in fact, that despite the area getting quite full of tourists now that the weather is warmer, I keep coming back.

The hotel is quite small with winding stairs and many different room configurations. It really looks and feels like a house that has been converted into a boutique hotel rather than a bland and generic chain hotel. The staff are all very friendly and accommodating, the rooms are comfortable, there is a lovely roof terrace and the breakfasts are excellent. This is why I keep coming back!

Room Tip: Some of the rooms and bathrooms are quite small so it is worth paying a little extra for a bigger ro...

I usually stay in Ostermalm when I am in Stockholm but always wanted to stay in Gamla Stan. I got a good rate here and stayed for a night on a business trip. It is very close to the T-Bana and Gamla Stan is easily walkable to Sodermalm & Norrmalm.

The room had a very cool "classic" bedroom with a modern bathroom. The breakfast area while small had really nice offerings.

I probably would not stay here again as when on business trips I would rather not be in a touristy area but if it is your thing this is an excellent choice

Great little hotel in the centre of Gamla Stan region of Stockholm, places you at the centre of sightseeing places. Rooms are on the small size, but you are in a 17th century building that has been adapted to be a hotel. Beds are soft, facilities clean. Magnificent choice of food at breakfast, both hot and cold selections, keeps you going all day.

Stayed: May 2017
