    Ideal location in the middle of Gamla Stan, within walking distance of most of the main sights. Friendly and very helpful staff, lots of thoughtful touches and spotlessly clean. Would happily recommend it to anyone planning to visit Stockholm.

    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)
