“Beautiful old yacht in the centre of Stockholm”
Reviewed 22 December 2011

The hotel is located in walking distance of the centre of Stockholm. Nice historic yacht with cosy atmosphere. Breakfast was very good and was served on the top floor of the yacht in the room with great views on Stockholm. We spent a long weekend with friends there and it was perfect for us. The cabins are indeed very small but well organised.

Room Tip: Be aware that the regular rooms are very small but otherwise everything is good.

Hotel: It is exciting to stay in a boat/hotel. Rooms (sailor room) are small and need redecoration but bathrooms have just been redone so they are small, modern, and nice.
Breakfast is good, its buffet and it has nice options on eggs (scramble, hard boil, soft boiled) cereals srepads delicious bread and not much fruit.

Location: Great. In Old stockholm and closeish to a subway station if you want to go somewhere else in the city.

Prepare to feel as if the floor is moving for some time when you get out of the boat and stand still :)

Sleeping in a yacht was a very good exprience. The cabins are small but very well organized, the bathrooms are recently renoved and are very modern. We were very well welcomed.
The hotel is situated at 8 mn to the Gamla Stan T. bana ansd it's in the historic ireland of Gamla Stan.
We spend a WE there. The breakfast is a buffet. You can also have a dinner but we didn't because it was very expensive : 445 sek.
I recomend the hotel.

Beautiful boat situated in the very center of Stockholm. This hotel is very convenient to visit the city. Nice old boat interior design and warm and cosy atmosphere. Romantic and very exotic.

As mentioned by many previous visitors, the rooms are very tiny (but we took the smallest).
The bathroom with shower was modern but very very tiny, maybe a bit too much. The water was warm.

The rooms are not perfectly sound insulated. People were quite quiet so it went good, but I can't imagine how terrible it could be with noisy neighbors.

The breakfast room is beautiful with a very nice view!

Room Tip: There are rooms with view on water and other on the city.

A nice and unusual hotel. Staying on a boat was fun. Rooms are quite small (I was in a Purser room). Shower was tiny and room a bit cramped. But had a porthole!

The hotel was a bit noisy. It has the loudest toilets ever.

Breakfast was good and included in the price.

I was visiting for a conference at the Munchen Brewery. Was only a 10 minute walk. The Gamla Stan island is really pretty so the hotel is a great base. Easy walk to get to the hotel from central station too.

Would stay there again but it wasn't a good place to sleep in late due to the noise.

I was staying in Stockholm for 2 nights and had to search and search for something that wouldn't break my bank account. Found the Malardrottningen hotel which was the cheapest (not looking at hostel) and review said it's tiny.
Arrived in Stockholm on Friday night and got a cab here - the hotel was all lit up with fairy light, first impression was "WOW"! Most reviews said the cabins are small but i was lucky enough to get one downstairs that has 2 single bed and a desk, which was actually quite spacious considering it was only for one person.
Room was small, but tidy; Hotel is walking distance to Gamla Stan and central Stockholm; and easy to get to the hop-on hop-off ferry sites as well. When i arrived on Friday night it was late so i took a cab that cost about 10 pounds from Central Station, when in fact it's about a 15-minute walk.

Room Tip: Room 120 was downstairs and has 2 single bed, sounds like it may be better than the bunk bed type?

Located at Riddarholmen in Gamla Stan (Old Town) this hotel(boat) is located close to everything in quite surroundings. The metro, the railway and several bus lines are also within easy reach. Small rooms (not surprisingly as this is a boat) and bathrooms, but quite sufficient for sleeping if the aim of the visit is to explore the city of Stockholm. The bathrooms are refurbished and well-working. The breakfast was also sufficcient. We did not try the restaurant onboard. Just a few steps from the entrance there is an outdoor bar which, in the summer season, serves hot and cold drinks and snacks from which you have a nice view of Riddarfjärden, Södermalm and Kungsholmen with the Town Hall. I would like to stay here again.
