Stayed 2nights during June 2013. Lounge & dining-room furniture shabby and place overall run down. Linen spotless though. Had a room on the second ship but that ship has no lounge where one can boil water for coffee or a kettle in the room. Breakfast so-so. Overall impression: very over priced and disappointing.

Room Tip: Definitely avoid accommodation on the second boat that is mostly rented out to noisy workers from a...

If you want to have a ideally located place to see Stockholm which is got character and has great staff then this is the place for you. Plus it is very reasonable in a city which can be a bit on the expensive side.
Yes the cabins are small and the bathroom tiny but you know what to expect by now and its really fine. Plus the bar prices are reasonable and the breakfast perfectly adequate.
As I said the staff were brilliant and the ship was the ideal place to watch the New Year fireworks.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the lake side

We spent one night there, and the charm of the place got us through that. The room was tiny, the toilet made for midgets, there is absolutely no sound isolation, and it was freezing as well. But it's cheap, the location is perfect, and it's a beautiful little ship. Have a sense of adventure and try it! (For one night)

My girlfriend and I booked a room on the Rygerfjord for two nights in Stockholm. We found it good value as it kept us close to the old town and some of the best tourist sites for not a lot of money.

The staff is helpful and fantastic explaining things out to us and the common room was very comfortable with old leather chairs and a relaxing atmosphere.

As this is a boat everything was very small. Our room had a bunk bed and not much else in the way of space (think 7' by 7') and the shower stall was also very small.

That being said, you booked yourself onto a boat for a reason. Enjoy it!

You could live here. The staff are great and no matter what weather there is outside you are safe and warm.
The cabins are cool as and you feel like you have have joined the team aboard ship.
This is great value for money for a beautiful view of Stockholm across the water looking straight at the City Hall. Easy walk to the old part of Stockholm Gamla Stan and easy walk to Södermalm. In Södermalm Heaps of shops, food and cafes away from the touristy Gamla Stan. Having said that. Gamla Stan is amazing. Little laneways and cobblestones it is very enchanting. There are heaps souvenir shops and you can walk right by the palace. It's amazing. Go and Visit the Vasa Museum and the The medievil Museum is also very good or Skansen ( make a day of that!!) it's all good.
Don't pay any more that 120-150 SEK in a cab if you are coming from the Central railway. Make sure you fix a price. It is not very far. If you don't have a lot of baggage get the train to Slussen and walk down to Södermälarstrand you will see the boats. Also if you are coming from Arlanda Airport you can get a fixed price to Rygerfjord. Don't pay more than 470 SEK. Pay less but not more:) Get a fixed price before you put your bags in. Check what is says for the price displayed on the taxi window. Rygerfjord site has some recommendations in "Find Us" Section. Read it.
I have stayed at Rygerfjord three times now and it is always a wonderful experience. The breakfast is very good and if you are tired and you need a days rest stay on the boat and get lunch or dinner. You can buy a meal on board all day after breakfast is finished and you still have the amazing view of the city. Email or call them if you unsure of which room to book. The Hotel Mates cabins are more like the size of a hotel room with ensuite bathroom. The Hotel Cabins are smaller also ensuite, with portholes for windows and don't have much space for large luggage, but they are still really cool. If you want to stay on a boat live like you are on a boat! I say. Enjoy.
Also Good value for hostel rates and safe code in at night. Reception is always manned.

Room Tip: Have look at travellers photos ( and Rygerfjord site) and give the staff a call or and email. They w...
