We stayed in Langholmen for two nights, whilst attending a wedding at the same hotel. As a converted prison, the hotel certainly has character! Each room is an old cell - we had a double room which seemed to be two cells knocked through, so was more spacious than our friends' room, which was quite a squeeze with a bunk bed.
The hotel is quite no-frills but very clean and tidy with a fair few reminders of its history, and a nice, relaxing place to stay. Situated on a leafy, quiet island, Stockholm city centre is an easy walk over the bridge. The breakfast was good, although we tried lunch which was not a great experience! I think it was just traditional Swedish food though but not really to our taste. The meal at the wedding though was incredible - we discovered reindeer meat is delicious!
The staff are all happy to please, and everyone speaks English perfectly. Don't miss the prison museum situated in the hotel to while away an interesting 20 minutes!
