Profile: Gamla Stan

Profile: Gamla Stan

Gamla Stan, in central Stockholm, is known for its narrow cobblestone streets, winding alleyways, and historic townhouses. It’s pleasantly walkable, and a stroll will carry you past cozy restaurants, beautiful churches, and the Royal Palace.

Near the Royal Palace is Stortorget Square, the district’s hub, which is ringed with cafes and hosts the Nobel Museum, the Swedish Academy, and a popular Christmas market. Gamla Stan has plenty of restaurants, but it’s worth making a special trip to Den Gyldene Freden, the oldest restaurant in the world with an unaltered interior.

    Relax onboard

    Loved staying in Gamla Stan, Stockholms old town Nice compact hotel, perfect for 1 or travelling with a friend Great breakfast included. Only slight problem was wifi not available in cabin. Maybe they need some boosters?

  • 2.0.Poor

    Very poor service

    1-Customer service (reception)was aweful at the check-in. We got into a room(not the best and not the cleanest) to find out the toilet flush was not working. When we complained ,we were told there is an issue and someone is fixing it and her colleague forgot to say it at the check-in time!!!!5 seconds after we left, they burst out laughing!!!! 2-We received an email they day before that buffet breakfast is not available during September. We couldnt change booking because it was nonrefundable. Again at the ckeck-in, we were told the email was a mistake!

    Perfect Stay

    This floating hotel was absolutely amazing. From check in to check out. A+. I was able to check in early after a long flight and bus ride from the airport. The room was small, clean and everything you would have expected from this type of hotel. The hotel was great and not over priced like most. Your very close to Gamla Stan and youll be able to find food, bars, souvenir and nightlife options.

    Very convenient location, Lovely view, Lovely and simple interior. Very helpful and friendly staff. If you have to have saunas and weight rooms and room service and a larger room go elsewhere but for friendly, simple accommodations with a feeling of historic luxury this was unbeatable

    Really nice boat hotel very close to the centre and all the amenities. A real experience!! Room was small but expected, as it is a cabin in a boat! Bathroom was adequate for the space in the cabin but the shelf above the tiny sink needs to be moved, very difficult to manoeuvre around it! Staff friendly enough but could have been more forthcoming in giving us information about the services on the boat (where everything was located) and also more information on services outside the boat (where tram stops were, etc)

    Cute and cozy in a great location

    Such a cute hotel with great service and an amazing location. Rooms are small but it was perfect for me as a solo traveler. 2 minute walk from the Gamla Stan metro, which is easy access to the rest of the city. Highly recommend!

    Loved that the property was a boat! Staff was all warm and welcoming! A bit dated but to be expected on an old yacht
