Skeppsholmen is one of Stockholm's beautiful islands and quiet. We would certainly recommend the Skeppsholmen, but have to say it really upholds Stockholm's reputation for expensive. As a consequence, if/when we return, we will probably find someplace less expensive. The rooms her are designer rooms, very upscale...indirect lighting; the sink, for example, has a big stone in the middle of the sink off of which the water drains. Not really our cup of tea but, nonetheless, beautiful if it's yours
Try to stay as close to reception as possible. The building is a former barracks; it is very long and only three floors high so if you are at one end or the other, it is quite a hike to the reception and dining area and, as I tend to do, if you forget something in your room, it's another long hike back. In fact, we got this advice before going, booked a specific room above reception and they did not have it available when we arrived. I never understood why. The second day we asked to be changed to a room with a bath (and a shower). That change resulted in a move closer in. I was a little dismayed when they did not have our room but happy to say they pleasantly try to accommodate requests
Breakfast is abundant and good. We had dinner here one night and it was very good. The other two nights we came back for a glass of wine and a wonderful chocolate dessert with raspberries.
In some ways, I probably should give it an overall three rating since, in my mind, $400+ per night should be a little closer to perfection in my estimation, I am giving it a four rating since the setting is pleasant, the staff is helpful, the rooms are very upscale and, it just "feels" like a four. A three would make it seem more ordinary than it is.
