I travelled with my family to Stockholm for a week of doing nothing. We chose the Lydmar because of its central location and its facilities and we were not disappointed. Everything is within reach of the hotel and you can easily walk into Gamla Stan, across to Skeppholmen or into the newer parts of the city. Boats for the archipeligo leave literally outside the hotel and the views to Sodermalm are breathtaking. Hotel service is as one would expect in a boutique hotel. Very good but sometimes a little haphazard at breakfast. A small critiscism though as in general the guys were excellent and Nina on the front desk is fantastically helpful. A few families were there also so the mix was nice. Even the ultra cool terrace was accessible to us and we were made to feel welcome. I would say that the only problem that is not properly dealt with is the noise level - we took connecting rooms on the 3rd floor 312 and 311 which were spacious and well decorated. The corner room however was noisy primarily because of laundry deliveries into the next door Grand Hotel at 6.45am. It didnt bother us too much as we were in bed early with the kids but I could imagine it being a problem if you are a night owl. The terrace is lively but we didnt get terrace noise that others have mentioned. If I was the hotel usage, I would switch the terrace use and open the downstairs restaurant and terrace as a bar/eatery in the evenings and use the terrace and large hall area on the 2nd floor as a breakfast, lunchtime hang out making the hotel a lot quieter if you are on the terrace side. A final point to make sure of is what artwork you are going to find on the wall of your room (we had a very odd reasonably titilating girl on girl scene which Dad enjoyed) as some of it isnt great for kids unless you are liberated which ours now are :) Just worth checking. Anyhow in summary a great hotel, in a great location, in a great city but expect a bit of noise and take it in your stride. Everything else is great.
