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.
