I stayed here on a citybreak, travelling on my own and I loved every minute of it. The Mälardrottningen is moored in a lovely quiet location on Riddarholmen, just across a small bridge from Gamla Stan. It's an ideal location if you want peace and quiet as there is no late night noise from revellers. Shops, restaurants and everything you could possibly want - just a short stroll away.
I had an Officer's Cabin and it was lovely. I believe it is one of the larger cabins and it had a wonderful view over the water. It was compact in size but very well laid out and immaculately tidy. I wouldn't have liked a smaller cabin so I think others may find the compact size to be a problem, especially if you are travelling as a couple.I definitely wouldn't have liked to share and if I return with friends, I'd want a cabin each.
If you're independent, well travelled and love accommodation with quirkiness and bags of charm then you'll probably enjoy the Mälardrottningen. If you're "high maintenance" or need something conventional, then please don't book it.
The bunk bed accommodation was comfortable with big fluffy quilts and pillows. The bathroom, although very compact, was spotless with a lovely, powerful shower.
Wifi worked perfectly for me the whole time.
Breakfast had a very good selection including scrambled eggs and pancakes and the most gorgeous variety of rolls. The buffet was constantly replenished and kept immaculately tidy. I didn't eat at the restaurant but it did have a very appealing menu.
It was an absolute joy to round the corner by Riddarholmskyrkan every evening and to know that you were heading back to your little peaceful lamplit cabin and perfect tranquility.
I am booking again for another "escape".
