Great little hotel in great location

Posted May 21, 2014 on Hotels.com
I really loved this hotel - it is small, with the hotel having a nautical theme (a differnet model ship in each room and portholes in the bathroom door) and the rooms are very small like a ship's cabin. But as long as you know that, you will find everything you need, the staff are very friendly and it has a location in the heart of the old town which is fantastic. Quirky and funny but well worth a few days in the centre of historic Stockholm.

I didn't realise this is Sweden's narrowest hotel...until I turned up! The room was tiny, the window overlooked apartments and had no net curtains, so privacy was low. At least the hotel is clean and has free wifi! There is a church that seems to ring its bells every hour throughout the night, and the bed was quite hard, so not for the light sleeper.The breakfast buffet was poor with very limited choice. On the plus side, the location is great, a few minutes walk from the royal palace, restaurants, shops, bars etc.

1st class staff, suit those ok with basic accom!

Posted Aug 16, 2013
Pros: the wonderful staff, the location and poop deck
Location: central of centre of centre, for me I could move in!
If the comforts of a nice, 3/4 star plus hotel are your main priority then this is not the hotel for you, but that does not make it bad. Lord Nelson is central of centre of centre, the room is basic but I just used it to sleep, shower and toilet, as my purpose was exploring Stockholm all day and going out at night! I will never hear a bad word against Swedish people again though, the staff at Lord Nelson are superb, they are helpful, they go out of their way, they are knowledgeable and polite. They made the holiday for me. I had the best 5 days ever in one of the world's cleanest, most spectacularly, stunningly beautiful cities.

eccentric hotel in the heart of old stockholm

Posted Aug 4, 2013
Pros: its eccentric character - such a nice change from places with no personality
Cons: the ground floor room (1) was overlooked from the alley - there was no privacy without shutting the heavy curtains, so no air could circulate at night
Location: wonderful, very near the subway, royal palace, shops and restaurants
the staff could not have been more helpful breakfast was very crowded and it was quite hard to get at the buffet the room was quite small, but i knew that when i booked and it made up for that in character
