We stayed on the Malardrottningen for two nights in October. We booked a ‘seaman’s cabin’ which we knew would be small but we actually had more room than we’d expected. There was a wardrobe with hanging space, desk, tv and plenty of room to store our luggage (no safe however). The bathroom was new and the shower was powerful and hot. Breakfast was upstairs and was a good selection of hot and cold food, but we were disappointed that there were no pastries or buns! It was a lovely spot to eat breakfast and look out across the lake.
The location of the boat is excellent – literally five minutes walk from Gamla Stan and on the really peaceful Riddarholmen island. It took us about 10/15 mins to walk from here to City Terminal where we took the bus to and from the airport. We loved the whole experience of staying on the boat, finding out the history of it and returning to our bunk beds in our cosy cabin at night after a long day sightseeing.
The only negatives for us were that that the cabin was very hot and stuffy – you can’t open the porthole and we couldn’t adjust the heating/air con in the cabin. I also found the boat to be quite noisy at night – either from other people moving around above or in the corridors or just from general, creaky boat sounds!
Overall though we’d definitely recommend it for a short stay in Stockholm.
