Cosy place on a boat for people not seeking for much comfort
We chose this hotel because of its location (close to the old town Gamla Stan) and the price (it offered the best prices for Stockholm, which is a very expensive city, especially in comparison to Poland). We had a double room with a bunk bed overlooking a promenade and not the lake itself. The beds were very comfy and the linen snow white. The room was very small with a tiny window approx. 15 cms x 40 cms, which didn't open easily (it opened upwards and it was hard to maintain the window at this position), so it was rather stiffling and hot, especially at night. In the room there were also a table, a seat and a stool and a place to put your cloths in. Hopefully, the mirror was placed on one of the walls, which made you feel that the room is a bit bigger. There were two bathrooms for ladies (for 15 rooms) with showers. They were all kept clean. We had no breakfast included in the price, but I saw that there was a selection of cheese and meat, jam, butter, bread, coffe and tea. We could use the common area onboard of the boat - nice atmosphere, marine ornaments, tables with beautiful lamps, comfy seats, where you could have a cup of tea or glass of wine, use your computer or smartphone or have a chat with the other guests. We stayed there only for one night - we could check in before an official time presented in the booking (our room was ready) but had to leave our room by 10 sharp (the cleaning ladies were knocking at our door at 10.01). We could leave our luggage with the hostel and spend the rest of the day visiting Stokholm without carrying out bags. We came back in the late evening to collect our luggage and have the last cup of tea before our departure at midnight. The staff were really helpfull and fantastic.
