I had the opportunity for a brief trip to Stockholm and wanted a hotel convenient to major attractions, restaurants, and transportation due to limited time. Rica Hotel Gamla Stan completely fulfilled all those criteria. It is in a charming old section of the city with cobblestone streets and historic buildings. At the same time, it is near modern conveniences like the train station and ferry service. The rooms are not large or luxurious by American standards, and there is no business center/fitness center/conference center as you would find at a typical American chain. On the other hand, the meticulously clean and cozy rooms, extremely comfortable beds, and free, fast wireless were much appreciated. There was also a small roof deck right outside our room, with lovely views of church steeples. Breakfast buffet was delicious with excellent variety. The staff was uniformly excellent, very knowledgeable and helpful, and had our room waiting for us despite an early morning check-in.
