The Red Boat Hotel & Hostel
Ranked #98 of 155 Hotels in Stockholm
Reviewed 20 June 2014

We stayed for 2 nights in January. What a unique and different place to stay. You can stay in a rectangular hotel room anytime but when do you have the chance to stay in a boat overlooking Gamla Stan? We took the T and walked over the bridge to the boat from Gamla Stan. The rooms are small and clean like you would expect on a boat. You have a wonderful view of Gamla Stan with the reflections off the water. One boat is the office, breakfast location, and lounge. The other boat has the rooms. You can keep your luggage in a locked box outside if you need to check out and have some time to go sightseeing before your next flight. We had a great time riding the T all over Stockholm and surroundings.

Room Tip: Try and get a room facing Gamla Stan

I stayed here for three nights in April and I was quite satisfied! It's located in Södermalm and very central to pretty much everything- it's just a short walk to Gamla stan. The rooms were very clean and the toilets and showers were also clean. You get bed linens for free- you also get a postcard and a toffee on the bed. Pretty awesome. :)

Quality/price not so good considering that rooms are really small, showers and toilets are shared, every little movement of a neighbor wakes you up... Don't consider this hotel if you do not plan to go to bed before 3-4am and if your sleep is not good...
Staff is not nice btw

We stayed in one of the double deluxe rooms with ensuite bathroom, and we could not fault the room/cabin. There is a lot of attention to detail here with plenty of electrical sockets, lights, and just enough space to feel very comfortable. There is a very good buffet breakfast, and a small bar on the main boat with a small bar menu. Stockholm is a wonderful city to visit, with plenty to do and see. It's an easy to walk into Gamla Stan or Sodermalm, where there are plenty of places to eat in the evening. We also discovered that we were in easy walking difference of Akkurat, which is a beer hall in Hornsgatan St.

I visited for 3 nights staying in the Dulux Double room with private bathroom. For the price and location in Stockholm it was ideal. We were put in the room on the White Boat (just behind the main Red Boat) and were on the top deck next to the Captain's wheel. It was great fun staying on a boat and all the little touches such as the wheel and sailing equipment/photos gave the boat real character. This is a budget hotel so don't expect major luxury but it was clean, very warm, very safe and the small but well designed bathroom had a lovely warm shower which we will appreciated after a day in the cold outside! The breakfast buffet is very welcomed and worth the price; it stayed opened until 10am on a week day and 11am on a weekend. The staff are very helpful and friendly. I would definitely stay here again.

All of the Stockholm highlights and the beautiful Old Town are within 5 minutes walk- in fact we didn't use any transport during our stay except the Tour Boats. There are lots of great restaurants and cafe's near by too.

I highly recommend visiting the Vasa museum- we went in just because we were cold and looking for something indoor to do but we were completely blown away by the museum; if like us and you are not particularly interested in historic boats this is still worth it! Other than that the Boat tours and Outdoor museum in the park are great. The city itself is easy, interesting and safe to get around; I definitely recommend you try the cinnamon buns at a café (you will not need lunch after eating these!)

Room Tip: If you can afford it try and go for the lake/river view- the view is beautiful and probably quieter...

I stayed on the boat for 4 nights last year and it was really nice! Nice cosy cabin, huge bed and decent breakfast. Gamla Stan (Old Town) and Södermalm in walking distance. If you like good food I recommend Rolfs Kök in Stockholm - really nice place with good food
