I had a single room which had recently been renovated. For a tiny, tiny room, it had all of the amenities needed. My only complaint was the matress. Possibly the worst I have slept on, I would have preferred the floor if there had been space to lay down. The location was fantastic, breakfast very nice and the staff welcoming. Would definitely recommend this hotel, just not the beds!

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.

Room Tip: 401 is right next to the roof deck

One of the most fabulous small hotels in the centre of the lovely Gamla Stan. Although it's a bit expensive it's worth seeing. The hotel staff was also very friendly and polite.There were no problems with checking in earlier though we were living on high season. I would love to come over one day once more.

This hotel is in a excellent location in Gamla Stan. It is close to metro and ferries, in addition to being in the old city. We had a mini suite, with a small bedroom and living room and tiny bathroom. The room and hotel were lovely. Unusually excellent buffet breakfast. We are told where to park our car. It was only a 10 minute walk and not usually expensive. The hotel is expensive, but you are paying for excellent quality and location

Everything in Gamla Stan is only a few blocks away; you could not ask for a better location. Both the water and ferries, and a huge number of shops and restaurants, are convenient (there is even an English language bookshop down the street). The staff is attentive, the rooms are clean and well-appointed. Excellent breakfast served each morning.

Room Tip: Rooms that face the street can be a little noisy if revelers are about, carousing into the wee hours.
