This is a different kind of hotel. By reading the info and reviews elsewhere you'll know that, so I won't repeat it. First off, the staff was extremely friendly and helpful, top notch! And the rooms were fine, if somewhat unwieldy when it came to the bathroom logistics (ours had the shower right in the bathroom doorway and the WC beyond that...). Part of the charm maybe, but quite a few non-functioning lights and a clogged and smelly drain wasn't as charming. The very nice housekeeper told us she had reported the latter problem earlier, but it was not yet fixed.

You can do much better in terms of price, though. The cost of staying at this hotel is largely motivated by its location, right in the Old Town of Stockholm. That's not a good enough reason, since the Old Town is easily accessed from just about anywhere in Stockholm by subway or on foot.

Annoying detail: The hotel brags about all rooms having internet broadband connection. Not true. For our 6 days there, we never had a signal in our room. And the staff actually told us this up front, so the brochures and their website are just plain lying on this point. Good to know if you're depending on this for a few hours of work while you're there.

This bed and breakfast is really lovely for a great Swedish experience. In the heart of Gamla Stan, the old city. We had the suite at the top of the house which is a great room and also a second room which was small but still very comfortable and authentic. The ladies that run the hotel were very nice and very helpful. The breakfast provided is relaxed and very tasty, again simple traditional Swedish breakfast with a great selections of meats/cheeses, breads, juices, fruits, cereals, cakes etc. There are a lot of stairs in the hotel, steep and narrow, but this just adds to the charm of the place, so long as you are able to get up them. Thanks for a great stay.

We stayed two nights in August. This is a charming hotel on a quiet passageway in Gamla Stan. We liked the hotel, but it might not be for everyone. The 7 rooms are accessible via a circular staircase in a building that dates from the beginning of the 17th century. The large rooms, renovated within the last 10 years, are comfortable and functional but not quite elegant. Their charm derives from sloping wood floors, high beamed ceilings, and subtle lighting that gives a feel for what it might have been like to live there in the 17th century - but with electricity and 21st century bathroom facilities. Breakfasts were very good, and hotel staff members were accommodating and helpful. Be aware that the hotel functions a bit like a B&B. We were on the ferry from Turku to Stockholm, expected arrival 6:15 pm, when we noticed in our confirmation that check-in is available until 6:00 pm, which is when the last staff member goes home. I called the hotel, and was given the security code for the main door. The hotel has wifi, but it was difficult to connect and stay connected. The signal was strongest in the stairwell on the first floor and, in our second floor room, in the bathroom. All in all, we would stay here again.

We spent two nights at Sven Vintappare and found the location to be very convenient. We were able to walk with our luggage from the train station on arrival. We were sailing out on a Baltic cruise and again were able to walk with luggage to the cruise ship. The over 400 year old, small hotel is quaint. The stairs, while charming, could be a problem because they are narrow and winding. We managed just fine, however, getting our luggage to our 2nd floor room which opened to a little square below. The room was large and comfortable and the shower bathroom, while small, was nicely done. Breakfast downstairs each morning was very good and the staff was very helpful...texting us to help us locate the hotel from the train station, keeping our luggage for us after check out so we could walk about town some more before boarding our ship. We took the hop on hop off boat tour which departed close to the hotel to visit other areas of the city. Even though we were down a narrow alley, off a busy tourist area, our room, room 2, was quiet at night.

Room Tip: If you have trouble with stairs, request a room on a lower floor. Room 2 , second floor, was large and quiet.

This is a very nice little, and very old, hotel right in the middle of the old town of Stockholm. We were welcomed by a smiling, very sweet Swede in a National costume (we arrived on their National Day) and the service from then on was always met with a big smile. It`s a very old building, crooked and quaint with a very steep staircase and double rustic doors. The rooms are bright, quite large and with great comfy beds. We stayed for work, which I won`t recommend if you have to work a lot and be online the whole time. Due to very thick walls Internet-connecntion is unreliable (at least it was for me). But all in all a very pleasant stay with a wonderful breakfast served in a little café. Would go back with my husband in a heartbeat! Note: sleep quality can be so-so, I slept like a baby on the top floor, but my colleague on the second floor had trouble because of noise from the streets at night.
