About Mälardrottningen Hotel, Stockholm

Charming yacht hotel in Stockholm's Old Town

Moored near the metro

Moored on the small Riddarholmen Island in the Old Town neighborhood Gamla Stan, this 1924 yacht hotel provides a peaceful location from which to explore the city. A 10-minute walk takes you to the Gamla Stan T-bana Station, the city center, and Stockholm Central Train Station.

Royals past and present

The 13th-century Riddarholmen Church, burial site of Sweden's kings, is 1 block away, while the current king's residence, the Royal Palace, is 7 minutes on foot. A similar walk takes you to the colorful architecture of Stortorget market square, as well as the Nobel Museum.

Free breakfast, sea views

You're in for a scenic treat with free breakfast over harbor views, sunsets from the top deck bar, and a Stockholm shoreline backdrop for dinner. The restaurant's fine local cuisine will enhance your views and you can relax further in the sauna.

Cozy seaside rooms

You can enjoy a marine atmosphere in the Mälardrottningen Hotel's 61 cozy, character-filled cabins featuring free WiFi and flat-screen TVs. You have the choice of a single, bunk, or double beds, and views of the sea are available in select cabins.

Unique place to stay near Old Town
Check in was fast and friendly. The young lady at the desk was very happy to recommend some places to eat and other sites, even marking them all on a map. I had a single room which was very compact, as I expected. Nice little closet with a couple of shelves and a long desk which gave me plenty of space to put all my travel guides and odds and ends. The bed was comfortable. Soap/shampoo combo provided in dispensers. NIce BIG towels. Two outlets on the wall and another under the desk, which were plenty for me. Breakfast was typical Scandinavian fare and was very good. The restaurant is closed on Sunday and Monday but snacks and beverages can be purchased from the front desk. The boat itself is fun to walk around, although the steps are kind of steep and just twisty enough to make me a tad nervous when carrying my luggage. It’s very close to the Gamla Stan metro stop, one stop away from the main station. Also close to the Royal Palace and several other sights. All in all it was a great stay in a place with a lot of character and staff that really make you feel at home. If I ever make it back to Stockholm I’ll definitely stay here again!

Good experience and a very good price. Cabins are tiny but we knew that ahead of time. We only stayed one night. A cabin so snail would be a problem of it was more than one flight.

Great for Gamla Stan old town Stockholm
Know that the ship is old and the cabins very small, the setting is perfect, the convenience to Gamla Stan, public transport cannot be beat. Just know that you cannot spread out all your things and if you plan to organize as you settle in you'll enjoy the convenience, pleasant staff and your stay.

Amazing location and great hotel. So cool to stay on a boat! I loved the water on tap in the lobby, and the boat bar.
