I am used to staying in large 4* hotels with plenty of space and facilities, so it was a bit of a shock when I first arrived.
That said it was adequate, there is an en-suite bathroom but it is too small to change in, there is no fridge, tea and coffee making facilities, and the hotel does not have a bar. The room has a desk and chair and a wardrobe.
The reception staff are lovely, very friendly and welcoming.
The old town area the hotel is situated in is charming, very safe to walk around in, and extremely well situated. There are plenty of bars, restaurants and shops within walking distance.
The beds were extremely comfortable and the room was fairly well maintained. I didn't hear any church bells which other reviewers have mentioned, and I wasn't disturbed by any noise from the street.
There is free wifi which is a bonus.
Breakfast is continental but of a very good quality. The dining room is tiny (it probably only seats about 20) but people do tend to eat up and go so its not a proble.

- The Lord Nelson Hotel is an intimate, friendly and pleasant hotel right in the heart of Gamla Stan, Stockholm’s Old Town. You find the hotel on the main street, close to the city centre and all the capital’s sights and attractions. But the hotel itself is also an attraction, as it contains a unique, private collection of maritime antiques – passionately gathered through the decades by the owner family Bengtsson.
