“ALMOST 100% GREAT”
This hotel is a large yacht with perhaps the best location for a visitor to Stockholm in the entire city. It is close to the trains, the bus lines, and easy walking distance to major attractions. It is in a safe location, quiet, beautiful views and an excellent breakfast is included. Staff members are friendly and helpful. Although my satisfaction with the cleanliness of my room could have been better, I realize that problems occur and I want everyone reading this review to be aware of unforeseen circumstances. The rooms are cabins on a large yacht, and thus subject to mildew. I had the least expensive cabin and it was small, but I expected that to some degree. However, my room had an unfavorable smell. The entire yacht was under renovation and my particular cabin was not yet renovated. The adjacent cabin was renovated and 100% perfect so I realized that my particular cabin was not the standard for the hotel. I brought the problem to the attention of the staff and although it was not attended to immediately, it was acknowledged later that it was an unfortunate situation and I was compensated. I would highly recommend visitors to the beautiful city of Stockholm seriously consider staying here. As I said, you can't beat the hotel for a number of great features and one sad incident should not deter you away. I will certainly stay here again.
“Met our needs very well”
Price very good considering the location. We wanted to stay in Gamla Stan area and we spend very little time in our room since we came to see the Stockholm sights. Hotel is old ship that once belonged to Betty Hutton...it still rocks to the waves! Front office (24 hrs) very helpful and professional. The breakfast, included in the price, was plentiful, fresh, and varied. Bar and restaurant "on board". Only a few rooms have contained shower/commode; only twin or bunkbeds, it seems. We had to squeezee the bathroom floor after showering but no big deal. If you're extremely particular about your room, this hotel may not be for you. I recommended hotel to Rick Steves travel books for the price, location, and safety of the location. Also, small park across from hotel with small cafe overlooking the water was a favorite hangout to chill out.
“Novel floating hotel right in old town Stockholm”
Staying on an old and very comfortable boat docked right against the best part of Stockholm was a great find on the Expedia site. Price was good. Room small but ideal for my business trip alone. Easy walking to great old centre. Breakfast good.
“Fantastic Location, Excellent Value”
Mälardrottningen is in a fantastic location - totally walkable from the central terminal for train, T-bana, and bus - and close to everything else that you'd want to see or do in Stockholm. I couldn't get over the awesome location. My room was excellent - clean, comfortable, newly remodeled bathroom that was gleaming clean. At times, the fan in the bathroom did permeate weird smells but I could open my cabin window so that worked out. The staff spoke excellent English and were very helpful. Breakfast was excellent. I didn't eat there for dinner but the guidebook said they have a good restaurant. Overall - clean, comfortable, and can't beat the location & amenities for the price :D I'd definitely stay there again/recommend it!
“Mälardrottningen Hotel, Stockholm”
Fabulous ship to stay on, great location, small rooms as you would expect for a ship, clean, comfortable. I had left my Passport at the previous hotel some 200klm away and the staff here were VERY helpfull in making phone calls etc..etc.. and I had my Passport back in just under 5 hours......well done to all involved.
Fun to stay on a boat on the Venice of the Northampton
“Nice place indeed”
The best possible location, walking distance to Gamla Stan and all forms of transportation. Friendly staff, excellent breakfast. Cosy room with good beds.
“Fun place to stay”
We enjoyed staying on the boat. Breakfast was good. Excellent location.
“A unique hotel in Stockholm”
The location of the hotel is excellent, it is very close to the old town. The breakfasts were very good, with a nice view if you sat by a window. The room was a little bit tight for both of us but we were able to manage fine.
