We were really looking forward to our stay on this famous yacht but it was not the special experience we had hoped for.
We arrived early evening and were looking forward to sitting on deck and watching the sun set.
We were met by a very grumpy young man who made it obvious that we were nothing but an irritation. He certainly didn't feel it was his job to try to make our stay a pleasant experience! When I asked where the bar was I was told it was upstairs but shut on a Sunday. There was no invitation to explore the boat or to use the sauna facilities. In fact when we decided to explore ourselves all the accesses to the decks were locked which made for a very quick tour!
We ended up having a glass of very mediocre wine in the entrance hall with Mr Grumpy playing on his phone. Not the start to the evening we had envisaged.
There is so much history on this boat and a little enthusiasm from the crew would, I'm sure,have made it a lovely experience. As it was we spent a night in bunk beds for no good reason. Such a shame.
Breakfast was passable but nothing to write home about. All in all a very disappointing stay.

This boatel was perfect for our 2 night stay in Stockholm. We arrived into Stockholm on the train into the central station and were able to walk to the hotel in 15 minutes. The Gamla Stan metro line is less than 5 minutes away and all of old town of Stockholm is within a very short walk.

We had a room with a bunk-bed, ensuite and a view out over the water. The room is very small, so if you have large luggage or are expecting to spend a lot of time in your room, then you might be disappointed. The ensuite had been refurbished fairly recently, as it was very clean and modern. The shower was hot and powerful.

The breakfast was fairly standard continental breakfast. Scrambled eggs, bacon, bread porridge, cheese etc. Nothing you're going to get particularly excited about, but plenty of choice and they seemed good at re-stocking.

We slept well but a couple of minor things did irritate us. One is that the toilet flush is extremely loud and anti-social if used late at night which unfortunately our neighbours did. The floor boards in the rooms are also very squeaky and such is the thinness of the walls, you can hear your neighbours every single move. And our final complaint would be suffering the cigarette smoke filling our room – I presume from other passengers smoking out of their window and it promptly blowing in through ours. I'm not sure there is anything the hotel can really do about these irritations and to a point you get what you pay for as this hotel was much cheaper than other options located so centrally.

Loved the boat and view. 4 nights in the Captain's Room. Comfy bed and great to have extra space and private deck. Good selection at buffet breakfast. Excellent location. Welcoming staff on reception.

Living on an old style ship in the very centre of Stockholm is a great experience. The cabins are of course small and the stairs steep but if can you handle that, it is totally worth it. The breakfast is good and you eat with a great view. The staff is ever so friendly and nice.

Fantastic location. Close to Gamla Stan and not far from transport. Fabulous old buildings and water views. The rooms are small, naturally being a boat, but comfortable. Ensuite, TV, WiFi, small wardrobe. Breakfast had a good selection and very tasty. The staff were helpful and friendly. One of the main drawbacks is being a boat there is no room for a lift so if, like us, you have heavy luggage you have to haul it up and down those narrow stairs yourself. Unfortunately the toilet system broke down on our last morning but staff were quickly able to have it fixed. Great for a few nights stay.
