“Another fab stay at the Malardrottning”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

Visited for the second time in May and wasn't disappointed. Room VERY small but more than adequate for a couple of nights, and it's always a unique experience staying on a ship. Breakfast was lovely and the staff at reception were absolutely delightful, very friendly and welcoming as per usual. The Malardrottning is the perfect place to stay in Stockholm without breaking the bank, very near beautiful Gamla Stan (tip: Rather than walk over the main bridge of the island to get to GS, It's easier and quicker to walk to the T-Bahn station on Riddarholmen Island- about 5 mins walk- as you can walk underneath the road to the centre of Gamla Stan, passing a couple of very handy supermarkets on the way)

Room Tip: I would recommend, if you can, to get a room facing the water as otherwise you may be looking out to...

A sufficient room with bunk beds, a bit dark, small bathroom, ( but there was one!) good location, WiFi, courteous staff, able to store suitcase before room was ready, it was fine. Ok for a short stay.

In a few words :

Stayed 3 nights during a solo trip. Excellent location. The hotel is pretty clear about cabin size so it was perfectly OK for me. The room had a gorgeous sea view (I spent quite some time watching it). Breakfast is excellent. Wi-Fi is free, fast and satisfying. Some adjustments should be made to the bathrooms. Spotless cleaning, comfy bed. Free sauna!

In more details :

Staff is helpful and friendly. The room is as advertised. The bed was very, very comfortable despite the minimal appearance. I had a very good sleep quality during my stay.

The only not-so-perfect point is the bathroom : the size was OK (though someone with long legs cannot sit on the toilet with the closed door), but there was some kind of foul, light odor around (I don't know what it was, and I checked, the bathroom was cleaned spotless). Also, the shower had an temperature constantly changing from cold to burning hot

I've heard some reviews about a ventilation noise going on in each room during the night. There is indeed a slight ventilation running all day, but it automatically stops at 11PM so it's not annoying while sleeping. Would the managers read the review and respond accordingly? Thats great!

The breakfast is a higher-class hotel breakfast and included in the price, you will find bacon, eggs, sausages, freshly made pancakes, pâtés, hams, as well as the usual cereals and juices. Quality seemed very good overall.

The Wi-Fi connection is provided free of charge and is of good quality.

I've also heard there was a complimentary sauna, which is quite nice, but I didn't try it.

The price is in the normal range of Stockholm hotels. Actually, when I booked, it was the cheapest hotel on the list that was located in the city center!

Room Tip: Take one with sea view :-)

This is a very unique boat hotel in a beautiful spot in one of the world's most spectacular cities. You very much get what you pay for in terms of cabins - with the "officers" quarters more spacious than the "crew" rooms - but it is reasonably priced for an expensive city. Scandinavian breakfast and WiFi are included and you get a fantastic view across to the City Hall from the top deck restaurant as you eat. It is moored by the island of Riddarholmen, and is a 5 minute stroll from Gamla Stan (the old town) and a 15 minute walk from the central station.

Stayed here for 3N with hubby and another couple. We got a bunk bed and asked for change which was allowed luckily at no extra charge - to a double bunk with a single bunk bed on top. Room or rather cabin since this's a ship, is rather small and tight for space. Not exactly spotless as we found hairs on the bedspread. Toilet or bathroom was ridiculously arranged, as we had to shower standing at the side of the toilet bowl due to space constraint. Location-wise, it's superb, being within walking distance to the Gamla Stan (Old Town) and the main city. Breakfast was exactly the same every morning, mundane and bland. Staff was good though, attentive and polite. Given a choice, I wouldn't stay here again unless for the unique experience of a hotel-cum-boat!

Room Tip: No point paying more for rooms facing the waters, as it's just a tiny porthole window that is no...

This hotel is converted from an original 1920s motor yacht. It was built for the Woolworths heiress Barbara Hutton and was a 21st birthday present.It has been sympathetically converted and many original features have been retained, it has a great atmosphere. The "cabins" are small so do not expect much room to manoevre.
It is located on the harbour and is within easy walking distance of the metro and the main station. It is only a short walk across the main road bridge to reach the beautiful old part of the city : Gamla Stan.
Very helpful staff and a wonderful spread for breakfast in the restaurant overlooking the harbour..
