There are plenty of boat hotels in Stockholm, If that's why you want to stay here, you can certainly look at other places as well. However, this hotel enjoys a location that most others do not. It is within walking distance from Central Station. GamlaStan is also just across the bridge from the hotel so you are right in the center of everything. Also, the views across the water are far better from this side, trust me!
Rooms: Very small, but I suppose I should have expected that anyway. My friend and I opted for bunk beds which was fine except that it was virtually impossible to climb onto the higher bed. There's a ladder but no room to actually move it around and use it! Other furnishings and amenities are basic but adequate. After reading reviews here, I made sure we picked a room on the main level (and not lower level). Thanks to this, we had good wifi throughout our stay. The bathroom was so tiny that I struggled to use the sink (and I'm just 5'6!). Room service was prompt and efficient though.
Breakfast:A variety of breads, some meats, cheeses, fruit juices, coffee, tea, swedish pancakes, scrambled eggs and cereal. Basic but quite filling.
Concierge:VERY helpful and always ready to offer suggestions for shopping/dining etc.
Tip to find the boat: Walk behind Ridderholmen Church and you'll find the boat docked across the parking lot. I had some trouble finding it initially since the maps were not of much help (but it was also getting dark).
Overall: Great value for money considering that every hotel in Stockholm is ridiculously expensive!
