I think you either love or hate the Lord Nelson hotel. I found it charming, but the rooms are incredibly small - even for Stockholm standards. Mine didn't even fit a bedside table and it took me a few minutes to find the wardrobe. The bathroom was basic and so was breakfast. My window looked into some girl's kitchen, which...

Great location in the old town (Gamla Stan). Unlike some, we found the double room big enough. The breakfasts were varied and plentiful. The staff were all polite and helpful, especially when we were left stranded at the airport by BA on our journey home. Although they had no room for us, they found a room at their sister hotel,...

You cannot fault the location of the Lord Nelson Hotel, on Gamla Stan. However it is the tiniest, most cramped place I have stayed, and at the price, not really worth it. Rooms were miniscule and extremely stuffy; lots of naval guff everywhere; an extremely average breakfast, though the service was generally good. It's very old-school and old fashioned, but...

The tiny room was a suprise but everything needed (bed, bathroom, tv) was available and the marine decoration theme in the hotel was very pleasant. The personnel was very friendly, breakfast delicious and the free sauna was a very enjoyable experience. The sounds of live music from the old town streets were entertaining:)

This hotel was booked for me by my hosts for a business meeting. Reviews had been somewhat mixed but I went with an open mind. Sadly I have to agree with those who highlight the crying need for refurbishment. Small and quirky rooms can be great, but not if they have old misshapen furniture, threadbare carpets and dead flowerboxes on...

Very cozy and cute hotel right in heart of Old Town. I stayed in December. Not sure if it might be a little loud in the summer. Hotel rooms are small but comfortable. Staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. Pride of ownership is everywhere. Modest breakfast included in price. Can't miss location. Good value. 15 minute walk from Main Train...

Such a small place but we had enough room in our double. I did not see one of the single rooms so I can't comment on their sizes. We had two double rooms on the top floor. Ours had a smaller room but very good sized bathroom, ensuite. The other double room was a bigger room but had a smaller...

I had known that this is the smallest hotel in Stockholm, but I thought I'd give it a shot anyways. I am so glad I did! Upon arrival, I went to the check-in desk, where I was greeted with smiles, and great attitudes. They were so interested in where I was from, and wanted to know everything about the state/country...

Rooms: - both single and double rooms are really tiny; bathrooms are brand new (small too). Once you open your suitcase its probably the best to stay in bed and watch TV - as there is not space to walk around at all; rooms are very clean; I like the idea of the hotel - designed like a ship.

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighbourhood Profile
Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting: take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Lord Nelson Hotel is an intimate, friendly and pleasant hotel right in the heart of Gamla Stan, Stockholm’s Old Town. You find the hotel on the main street, close to the city centre and all the capital’s sights and attractions. But the hotel itself is also an attraction, as it contains a unique, private collection of maritime antiques – passionately gathered through the decades by the owner family Bengtsson. All rooms have been designed and decorated to resemble cabins on a ship. The building dates from the 17th century and at just under six metres wide, this property is undoubtedly Sweden’s narrowest hotel. In the Summer time the hotel guests can enjoy a Beautiful view on Poop Deck, the roof top terrace. The Continental Breakfast has an organic a fairtrade profile, and the hotel offers free coffe and tea service in the library on the first floor. ... more   less
