The Hotel Skeppsholmen is a peaceful oasis, nestled on its own small island in the middle of Stockholm harbour, yet just a 15 minute walk from the centre of town. Surrounded by water, a water view room is definitely worth the premium. Room decor is Scandinavian austere, but very comfortable. The bathroom has an effective shower, but the absence of a door means that water winds up everywhere.
The patio out front is a very pleasnt spot for breakfast, dinner or a drink.
Staff are generally friendly and accomodating, esp. the younger people, who also tend to have a better command of English.
The buffet breakfast is extensive, and very good; given the generally high price of all meals in Stockholm, purchasing the breakfast with the room is quite cost effective.
Both the Museum of Modern Art and the Museum of Architecture are on a hill behind the hotel.
A day pass on the Hop on, hop off ferry allows one to use the tour boat as a commuter service, as the dock is right beside the hotel.
We have been in many 4 and 5 star hotels in Canada, the US, Bermuda, the Caribbean, UK and Europe, and while Skeppsholmen would not be mistaken for a 5 star, it was a unique amd wonderful hotel experience, which we highly recommend.
We'll go back.
