Old town charm
This is a lovely little hotel in the heart of old town. What it lacks in modern amenities, it makes up for in historical character. The room was very comfortable, with large, open windows, and breakfast was superb. Bathroom was small, but completely adequate for 1 person. There is a nice little rooftop patio as well.

The hotel is lovely and old-school charming. The staff (especially the kitchen staff!) were so nice and helpful. The daily breakfast is amazing. The neighborhood is a perfect starting point for seeing the whole city. You are right in the heart of the old town, but it isn't on a street with any of the bars, so it's quiet. You are also just two blocks away from the metro. I highly recommend staying here!

Nice stay
Very convenient, Old Town location close to everything, including the subway. Wonderful full breakfast with homemade pastries, frittatas, as well as eggs, cheeses, meats, fruit etc. We were unaware that there was no AC in the rooms and it was warm! They provided an oscillating fan, but we couldn’t keep the window open at night due to it opening onto a patio. The beds were Scandinavian style with narrow mattress and just a duvet/comforter and no sheet. Of course we didn’t use many covers with the heat! Thankfully, the evenings got cool and we slept. Very helpful people and we truly enjoyed our stay!

You arrive and think..It's not like the pictures. Next you discover itis meant to be like this, no modern restoration outside to preserve the old world look. This hotel is 500 feet away from pure charm, 500 feet from the waterfront too. The included breakfast is likely one of the nicest you will experience. Staff extra friendly and helpful. **NOTE/IMPORTANT**If you are from the US, be sure to bring a power converter or you will immediately burn up anything you plug in. A converter (AMAZON), reduces voltage to 110 , our voltage for our electronica and appliances. This is way different than an adapter. Be careful. I bought a very good converter for about $45.00 on Amazon. Last, the airport is a long way from Stockholm Old Town, the train is super easy right at the airport, even with luggage, it's right there. Then UBER to the hotel, cheap and easy. Last, last..I thought I would need currency. No. I have yet to use any , credit cards are commonly used, fast, accepted everywhere. And, if you are seeing the ABBA Museum, book tickets and a time in advance or you will not get in. There can be a 3 hour wait.
