Pros: Value for money
Location: Restaurants and bars in Old Town and site seeing all around.
Lovely od ship moored at Old Town. Ideal for restaurants bars etc. Small but comfertable cabins and super en-suite facilities. Great price and value for money for Stockholm.

Very good locationPosted Oct 31, 2013
Very convenient for the old city with nice view. Excellent breakfast and restaurant. The rooms rather basic and very small still clean and warm.

Quirky hotel in Stockholm's old townPosted Oct 23, 2013
Pros: Its quirkiness. The ships features retained include the engine room and cabin port holes.
Cons: The restaurant was closed Sunday and Monday evenings, I don't know why. It meant a trip out to a restaurant or buying lager from the hotel reception.
Location: The Mälardrottningen is right in the centre of old Stockholm so there's lots to see and do just a short walk away.
The Mälardrottningen hotel is a converted ship so it has character by the barrow load! It was owned at one time by Barbara Hutton, the Woolworth millionaire, and is now moored at a small island on the west side of Gamla Stan in Stockholm old town. All the staff I met were friendly and helpful and their English was top rate. My room was small (it was a converted cabin) but comfortable. Many of the ships original features have been retained, and it was good to stay somewhere so unlike many other standard hotels.

UniquePosted Oct 6, 2013
Pros: It is different, location is quiet, no main roads nearby, so no traffic noise
Location: Location in the Gamla Stan (old town) with close proximity to the old buildings. Very quiet as only side streets and no traffic or passers by at night
My review is based on the fact I used to be at sea and enjoy staying (as a business traveller) in 'quirky' hotels, particularly ship-based. Staff were attentive and helpful, my cabin (2nd Officers) was small but what I expected and liked - however, it would have been too small for myself and my wife (two couldn't pass between the lower bunk and the wardrobe) and I wondered how the mainly elderly couples and tourists managed?

Great PlacePosted Oct 2, 2013
Pros: The breakfast was great.
Location: It's opposite city hall and in Riddarholmen in the old town and is within walking distance of a lot of Stockholm's attractions.
Stayed here for 3 nights last week and will def stay here again. It's stationed on the island of Riddarholmen right in the middle of the old town. The breakfast was great and the staff friendly. It's best for couples or single travelers as it is a ship and you and staying in a cabin but it's clean and warm. It's about 10mins walk from Central Station, come out of the Vasagatan entrance, turn right and walk to the flyover and take the side walk on the right of it and you can see it from there.

Convenient LocationPosted Sep 6, 2013 on Hotels.com
I enjoyed my stay at the Mälardrottningen Hotel. I initially selected it for it's location close to Gamla Stan, and that proved to be a good choice. While the rooms are very small, the free breakfast was great (bacon and eggs and fruit), as was the free wifi. If you're traveling on a budget and don't mind being in close quarters, this is an ideal hotel.

Cosy roomsPosted Sep 4, 2013
Location: The hotel is a very short walk from Gamla Stan (the Old Town) - art shops, the royal palace
The room I stayed in was small and the porthole faced the walkway so I couldn't see anything. But the bed was comfortable and I was either exploring the town or in bed. The porthole wasn't visible from the bed anyway.
