“Very nice hotel in a very nice place”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

A real priceworthy hotel, where you are received by very friendly and welcoming staff. The ship breathes all you expect on a ship and it has very nice shipsrooms, clean, well decorated and furnished and with an outstanding standard of hygiene in the bathroom. Good wifi reception gives this 'old' style 'botel' a modern twist. In the morning there is a good breaffast with sufficient choices of cereals and breads and juices and coffe and tea of course. The hotel lies in an excellent part of the town and comming off the ship, you have a wonderfull view on the city hall of Stockholm and a quick access to Gamle Stan with the Westlonggatan and accompaniyng streets, one of the nicest shopping area's in Stockholm with loads of cafe/bars an restaurants.

This is a large boat permanently at dockside. Beds (in our room) consisted of two bunk beds which I hadn't experienced since summer camp! Very comfortable if a little contortionist to get to.
Bathroom was compact, with interesting use of space needed to fit a sink, shower and toilet in such a small area, but all was usable.
Breakfast was outstanding and included.
Location is good for walking about the Old City and there is a very pretty deck up top for relaxing with a glass of wine after your days adventures. Wine is available at the reception desk.
The only drawback that you need to know is that this location would be difficult for mobility impaired persons.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a water view.

This is the best boat hotel I've stayed on in Stockholm. The rooms are big for a boat and they have a private bath. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast was great. They have a free sauna you can use, you just have to ask (don't forget to turn the sauna on yourself). If the restaurant is full there is a nice cafe right outside the boat. Quiet location away from traffic, but still close to everything.

Room Tip: Room 316 is great! It's at the end of the hall and faces the water

Super comfy bed. Great shower. Quiet location away from traffic and city noise. Good breakfast. Room size ok for one but two may trip over each other. Some noise from bathrooms of other cabins but nothing too intrusive. Great location to Gamla Stan and most other city attractions including the old town. Central Station is easy to get to. The toilet flushing system is the only negative.

We could walk everywhere from this hotel, even to the Vasa museum. The views of Stockholm from the breakfast room / bar / restaurant are superb. The upper deck was a lovely quiet space to sit and enjoy the view in the open air. We had a cabin on deck 2 facing the quay with two low level beds which was surprisingly spacious. We could shut the porthole covers to exclude the light and get a good sleep in the short summer nights. The food was very good at the hotel restaurant. We also enjoyed the vegetarian buffet at the Hermitage in Gamla Stan nearby and walked to Hermans vegetarian restaurant over on Sodermalm from the hotel. The Grillska Huset cafe in the old town square was great for sitting outside with a coffee or a beer, people-watching and listening to the musicians.

we stayed here for 3 nights in late June this year. We were really happy with this hotel. it was quite a novelty to stay in a yacht. The location is perfect, just a short walk to the old town, Gamla Stan. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good. The cabin was a bit small but equipped with all essential amenities as well as a small bathroom with shower. We had a cabin, with sea view which is worth spending a bit more. The cabin was a bit warm despite the cool weather outside. However, the reception staff gave us a fan, which really helped. We really like the taps of still and sparkling water in the lobby.

Room Tip: Recommend sea view cabin Upper bunk bed is a bit uncomfortable and very close to the ceiling

I stayed as part of a group on this hotel for 3 nights. We have booked the same kind of rooms (except for the view), but there was huge difference on the rooms. The room I stayed in, had a very bad smell, and it took me a while to find out where the smell came from. When you went to the shower, all the water would not go down the drain, but go to the other end of the bathroom and out under the door - so the carpet in the room got wet. Not a good thing. But the room had a nice view and a nice bed. There was not fridge in the small room, thats something i did miss. The breakfast on the hotel was just super! The location of the boat is great - right next to the old city "Gamla Stan" - fantastic!

Room Tip: Try to get a room on third floor with a window that can open :)
