“Good with concerns”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2013

Excellent location in Gamla Stan section---the old town. 1600's hotel, very quaint, many old features retained. Close walking distance to everything. Amanda and Lisa were excellent hosts and breakfast was served in a cafe setting much like it was in the 16-1700's. close to the palace, Nobel Museum and more. Our stay was very good---but: there is no elevator which ordinarily would not be a problem. Access to the rooms was via a very narrow and very dangerous curved stairs---especially when trying to handle bags. Our room was #7 on the 4th floor---a very nice room but the stairs are the only exit in the event of fire---oh,you could jump 35 feet to the cobblestones below and take your chances--not a good thought. After my wife had two sleepless nights thinking of fire options we moved to the 2nd floor---only an 8 foot jump. It is a bit concerning even though there appears to be sprinklers on some of the floors and extinguishers on some but our opinion is that one is at risk.. Also, the hotel is not staffed after 6pm. There is no number to call if there is a problem in the hotel and there are no phones in the rooms. The advertised wi-fi is underpowered and connecting in our case was only fleeting and only if we stood in one corner of the bathroom. "Can you hear me now." So, if you are not skittish about safety, and are looking for a well located, quaint, clean and friendly small hotel---this be it. We enjoyed it, but would not go back until something is done about the fire safety issues.

Room Tip: Second floor superior---would keep to lower floors because of lack of 2nd exit in case of fire.

I stayed in this Hotel in July. 2012. The only reason that could drive someone to hit on this Hotel is LOCATION
No reception , no elevator , no amenities within the Hotel , and bad wifi . The hotel is run by a couple of young ladies , cute ,smiling , but totally unhelpful and sometimes unpolite . I won't never get back in there .
Not Recommended .

The hotel is nice, and very small. The rooms a quite small but very nice. The staff is nice and helping out with everything.
Minus for cleaning - i found hair and dust in bathroom, that was not so nice at all. Otherwise clean room.
The rooms have a kettle, so you can make some the or coffee, tv and two singlebeds puted together so they build doublebed. In the bathroom you will find all neccessery things, like shampoo, conditioner, bathoil, shavingproducts, make-up-products, hairdryer.
The breakfast is served when you want (the girl in reception asks when you want to eat) but until 11 am and its served in cafe. The cafe is very small, but the breakfast is buffe and its very good and tasty.
But all though its not worth that money to stay.
We were in the room as a couple, but in the hotel we were 4 more friends.

Our stay in Stockholm was unforgettable, thanks largely to the superb staff at Hotel Sven Vintappare. No request was too much, from getting free entry to a nearby fitness club to calling around to find the best way of viewing a traditional Lucia Day concert. Liz and Märit were gracious and welcoming at every turn. We loved our room (#4)--despite a bathroom the size of a tiny closet:-) But this is a building from the 1600s, and if you value historic charm, an unbeatable location in the Old Town with its narrow cobblestone alleys, and the feel of stepping back in time, this is the place for you. We already look forward to returning Hotel Sven Vintappare--to enjoy Stockholm in the summer!

Room Tip: The suite is more spacious but not as cosy as Room #4. The floor slants a bit and the stairways are...

This is simply the most beautiful little gem I have ever visited! This 400 year old house is tastefully transformed into a 6 room hotel.
We had the pleasure to spend the night here , it snowed heavily in the old town, and stepping in to this hotel was as walking into a fairy tale. Do not miss it for the world!

Entering the building in november last year we felt a little bit lost. Looking forward to Stockholm in Christmasclothes. Climbing up an extremely steep staircase, we expected nothing. Our suite was at the highest level. Suite....... it was not as cosy up there as we hoped. Gloomy rooms. Could be lightened in a much better way. This trip was to celebrate my wifes birthday. While climbing up to the top we passed an another room, no 4 I guess, which we asked to change to next day. Fixed, and we after that had a couple of days which we really enjoyed. The girl working in the breakfast/cofferoom was extremely kind and handsome. She was very helpful to keep us satisfied the rest of our stay. Flowers to her. But, after the "shock" meeting that kind of suite, we really liked the old building as yet.

Room Tip: Room no 4 is the best.
