My family came to visit me in Sweden, and we spent one night in Stockholm at this hotel. It was a wonderful experience. We arrived early, and were able to store our bags as well as get an upgrade because of a reservation error that was completely my fault. The staff was courteous and knowledgeable about tourist destinations. The room...

A very good hotel with the perfect starting point to explore Stockholm. The rooms are very comfortable, smallish but to be expected in an historic location. It's a good idea to have breakfast included in your stay, the buffet is brilliant and very generous. The staff were friendly and efficient. No in-room safe (for the travel wary) but fairly secure....

Spent two nights in April there, superior double room with sea view (or something like that). Room was spacious, clean, big bathroom. There was no mini bar and no bottled water. I was too tired to check room service. Guys at reception were good, but i don't have anything good to say for staff on breakfast. They have some "checkpoint"...

Located in the old town with frontage to the river and walking distance to many museums and sites.

The location can't be beat. This hotel in a great part of town and all of Stockholm is within walking distance. Gamla Stan is a little disappointing in that almost every shop sells touristy junk. But this part of town is just beautiful and very photogenic so it is not to be missed. Just don't go there for the shopping....

As a first time traveler to the city of Stockholm, Sweden I was so impressed with the staff of First Hotel Reisen. Everyone made you feel so welcomed to their hotel and their country.

We had a nice stay for a short weekend break. The positive first......Great location near to Gamle Stan and many restaurants, easy walking distance to town. Generally the hotel is good. The bar is efficient if a bit lacking in atmosphere, the staff are good but well trained rather than friendly and a good feature is that one needs a...

Chose this Hotel for its location, we wanted to Stay on Gamla Stan as it was close to the office of some business colleagues that we were visiting. It turned out also in a good location for visiting the local sites and attractions. The hotel itself is not untypical of many Stockholm hotels being sparsely decorated and furnished and getting...

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.
