Quirky hotel tucked away on a quiet street
Posted Aug 30, 2016
Most unusual hotel that we stayed in during our Scandinavia trip. It feels like an old manor that has been converted into a B&B. It is tucked away on a side street in a residential part of Sodermalm. The rooms are all different and are hidden away in winding halls. The rooms have low ceilings, exposed wooden beams, and antiques in the halls and in the rooms. In contrast, the bathrooms are extremely modern. A great breakfast buffet is served down in the dungeon-like basement. You can eat it there, or carry your food to one of the many courtyard spaces, or even to a sun room on the main floor. There is really no lobby, just a little hard-to-find room with a staff member behind a computer. I know it may not sound like it, but I loved this place--I just want travelers to have a clear picture of the hotel. it may not be for everyone. To get to the popular tourist attractions (Galmastan, museums, etc), you have to walk about 15-20 minutes to the bridge to Gamlastan, then go from there.
