This is the perfect place to stay in Stockholm. The room was small, but clean and nice. You can walk to historic sights, great food, bus and ferry stops and the train station. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful in helping us figure out how to get around the city. A special shout-out to the Chef who made our stay extra special. The breakfast spread itself was amazing and delicious and the service was warm and friendly. After we inquired about what was gluten-free, he not only pointed out the prepared items that were, but he offered and prepared for us absolutely delicious gluten-free pancakes and muffins. Overall, a wonderful stay.

A wonderful hotel situated in the historical part of Stocholm, very convenient to explore the town, since the tube and the boat are very close to the hotel. Staff incredibly adorable, breakfast is incredible, and the rooms are very quiet and clean.
