I and a colleague spent one night in Anno 1647, we each had one of their cheapest rooms with shower and toilet in the corridor. It was very basic, but we slept well, and there was no line in front of showers and toilets. I the location was excellent just around the corner from Slussen, a central metro station. At the same time, you are in walking distance from cozy Gamla Stan and hip area Sødermalm with great restaurants, bars and shopping.
I stayed here with my wife and to kids (6 & 3 y.o.) and it was great. There were 2 bedrooms and a little living room which made it a very comfy for a family with small kids and so we all didn't have to go to bed at the same time as not to disturb the others. The rooms were not the most modern but very charming and practical. Our room almost at ground levell and over -looked a small treet and I didn't notice any noise from outside. The location was a 5 minute walk to the ferry to a number of attractions. The old town was just as close giving a number of eating options. The staff were very helpful and nothing seemed too much bother.
The only 'negatives' if can call them that is that there is no little bar fridge to put a few juices or milk in for the kids (or a beer for myself at the end of the day). Expernsive beers are available for purchase in the reception though. The entrance is aslo hidden around the back of the hotel in a little alley so it can be difficult to find. All in all though, highly recommeded for families!
had difficulties finding the place, with no landmarks or signs. Imagine that with two bags on a rainy day. Overall, the room was as expected. Nothing fancy, an old TV, uncomfortable bed, and large old windows which you have to cover in order to have any sense of privacy. First night was saturday, and it was LOUD! A drum circle, a tambourine, and drunk folk singing loudly. But things calmed down around 1am.
Asked the reception lady next day whether it will continue, but she said it should not, and offered me free earplugs, which was a nice gesture. It got quieter from there on.
Good things - Breakfast, location, staff
Bad things - Uncomfortable bed, seriously basic room, and noise.
A tad bit expensive for the single rooms they have honestly.
For our family of four we had the choice between 2 standard twin rooms at a corporate-chain hotel up near the station or a suite at the Anno 1647.
I am very glad we chose the Anno 1647.
The locaton is excellent for Gamla Stan and also for the ferry to Djurgarden (Vasa museum, Skansen etc). Although on Sodermalm it is quite a way from some of the restaurants and bars although there iare some near the hotel.
The suite in the hotel was excellent for a family of four. A large sitting / dining room with 2 extra beds plus a large double bedroom and a bathroom. The rooms were clean and well equipped (big TV, free wifi etc) (Only thing missing was a kettle). The breakfast was good and the front desk charming and helpful. And all at a price significantly below a chain hotel.
Only losses a star because, as many others, have commented, it can be quite noisy - without air conditioning you need to have the windews open in any kind of summer so bring your earplugs.
Although this area of Stockholm is quite 'touristy', the hotel is in a central location. It is walking distance to everything. The hotel is lovely and on a quiet side street. The reception staff were very helpful. Prices from £75 to £150 with a very good breakfast.
