My husband and I spend four nights at the Lady Hamilton earlier this month. We couldn't believe how close it was to everything. Except for the day we purchased Hop On Hop Off bus tickets, we walked everywhere we wanted to go, including the City Hall and train station ( with our luggage). The staff was very helpful and always greeted us warmly.
Our room was spacious and bright. The shower was HUGE. The air conditioning worked beautifully and we needed it.
If you stay here and don't take advantage of the sauna and 15th century well in the basement, you've miss a special treat.

Room Tip: We specified an interior room to avoid street noise. When the sun is out until midnight, the noise runs very late in Scandinavia.

Many times while finding the right hotel in a new place, one has to compromise either on location or on charm or on service or on price or on comfort. It is rare to come across a hotel that satisfies on all counts. Lady Hamilton comes very close to doing that.

Location is bang in the center of Old Town,a brisk 10 minute walk from the Central Station. However be warned that if you are dragging your bags, you will make quite a racket and perhaps damage your wheels on the cobbled streets leading to the hotel, and that too a bit uphill. But once you enter the hotel, you truly feel like you ahve been transported to the early 20th century if not the late 19th century. It oozes with charm and character filled with sepia pictures, and antiques and numerous memorabilia and history engraved all around. It continues right into your room, even though for a temporary moment you are brought back to the modern word as you navigate the elevator!

Again reminiscent of old times, this hotel actually has single rooms i.e. rooms with a single bed for 1 person, a rarity today. It is compact and cosy bit extremely functional with all possible amenities you could expect from a 'bigger' hotel (umbrella, hair dryer, toileteries). However, again be forewarned that there is no a/c or overhead fan, though there is a small pedestal fan in case you really need it. As I first entered the room in early August evening, it seemed warm and uncomfortable. But once you open the window, take a cool shower and relax, the need for a fan or a/c just disappears. I kept my window open all night long, and even though there was a bit of street noise, I slept like a baby.

All of the staff (reception, restaurant, housekeeping) had smiles and were very polite and helpful. The breakfast that is included in all room rates was really fresh and inviting. There was a stack of oranges and a juicer, and it invited you to make your own fresh orange juice! I thoroughly enjoyed it, along with some of the best breads and croissants and coffee I have ever had.

The 2 days I stayed there, I never felt the need to use any public transport, walking was a pleasure.

A real gem. Go for it if you are in Stockjolm.

This is a nice old fashion hotel located in perfect surroundings in the outer corner of Gamla Stan. The rooms are nicely decorated and have always been tidy and clean when I have stayed there. Most of the restaurants are in the far end of the walking street that starts just around the corner.

Dont be afraid when the church bells are ringing - it is normal

This perfectly located hotel is filed with Swedish folk art and nautical antiques, but we found it has all modern conveniences and a very comfortable bed. Our queen room on the fourth floor had openable sky lights with operating blinds, important during the light nights of June. The room was fairly large by European standards, with plenty of seating space. As other reviewers have said, the location is first rate -- walk out the front door, look right, and there is the Royal Palace. We easily walked to Djurgarden, the island of many museums, including the astonishing Vasa Museum. The walk itself is a lovely experience, but it's equally easy and fun to take a ferry at the landing just down the hill from the hotel. The breakfast was excellent: you can even juice oranges right at the bar! The Lady Hamilton is the perfect place from which to explore the beautiful city of Stockholm.

This is one of three hotels dedicated to Lady Hamilton and Lord Nelson, all located within Gamla Stan. The motif of the hotel is definitely 18th century English nautical. Charming. We had a top floor room with beams that added to the room's character. The bed was comfortable and the WiFi was everywhere. The breakfast was plentiful and good. The front office staff was very helpful. We were a group of 7 taking a cruise from Stockholm. When we needed taxis to get to the ship, the office arranged for two to be there at the appointed hour. Everything was perfect. Location can not be beat. It is 1 minute to the Palace and Parliament, 4 minutes to the T-Bana, and restaurants and shopping are everywhere. There are two great ice cream\gelato shops on the next street; a must have. If you want to be in the middle of the tourist action, the Lady Hamilton is a must.

Hej rogerjm

Thanks for your positive review!

Next time you are in Stockholm you should try one of our sister hotels, they are just as charming as the Lady Hamilton Hotel!
