Excellent value right in the Old Town

The selling points for this boat-hotel are location and price - provides clean, comfortable, central accommodation at a very good price. Rooms are very small, which is as advertised and expected, but functional and clean with newer-looking appliances and bathrooms (which I later found is not the norm in Scandinavia). Breakfast is excellent, wi-fi works, staff is helpful, common areas are nice.

A quirky and very well located, good value hotel on a yacht!

A great hotel if you are looking for good value for a short stay. A GREAT location just a few meters from the old town in a nice quiet and very scenic spot. The room was small but fine for a short stay (we booked a bunk twin but were given a standard twin which was nice!) with a view from the little porthole and the bathroom was stylish but pretty compact. Staff were very friendly and there is free spring water in reception. The free wifi was a bit weak in the rooms but worked very well in the lounge/reception. We ate a lovely meal of decent value (10 off for hotel guests) in the scenic restaurant overlooking the water and the free breakfast was excellent. Checkout time was 12PM which was great also. Its by no means a flash or spacious hotel but I felt great value for what we got in the very centre of old town Stockholm. I'd definitely stay again next time I'm in town!

It's a yacht!

Great location. We like to walk the cities we visit. It's a 5 - 10 minute walk to Gamla Stan (Old Town) where the Royal Palace, the Cathedral and the Nobel Museum are located, and about 35 minutes to the Vasa Museum which is also near the Nordic Museum and the Abba Museum on Djurgarden. There's a subway stop in Gamla Stan that can take you to locations further away. Be aware that if you like a spacious room, this isn't the hotel for you. We are small people and with luggage, it was very tight. You need to be agile enough to use a bunk bed. There's an area near the Front Desk you can store un-needed bags, but it isn't secured. There was a nice hot and cold breakfast buffet included. Staff was always helpful and provided us with a map and recommendations for a walking tour. They also set up taxis for the airport transfers. Wifi worked well. We travelled in January when several attractions are closed. Summer offers more activities for the tourist.

Cozy, but small

There is a special atmosphere on this historic boat, but the cabins are on the small side (is listed correct, though). Also, can be a bit noisy. Good breakfast buffet, and the location is splendid, with just a few minutes walk to the central train station and shopping area, and right next to Gamla Stan.

Great location, great hotel!

The location of the Malardrottningen 'Yachtel' is nearly perfect, right in the city centre and only five minutes walk away from the main streets in Gamla Stan. The hotel is awesome, great view and the breakfast was great. The cabins are little small but really comfy and perfect for a weekend stay. Staying in the Malardrottningen is a unique experience and the hotel is pretty cheap compared to many other hotels in Stockholm

My review of Malardrottningen Hotel

The Meladrottingen is well situated in downtown Stockholm. The room was spacious and very, very cool--we won't soon forget our stay. The hotel staff with whom we've spoken have assured us that the mistake will be fixed. It's only been a few days, ad we're hoping that the mistake will be fixed soon too. The restaurant served delicious dinner and lavish breakfast. Overall, a delightful stay in an ideal location. I hope they get their logistical quirks under control.

Awesome place to stay in Stockholm

We decided to get a room at Malardrottningen for one night and decide last minute where to stay the second night. We were so pleased with the overall experience that we decided to stay another night. Hopefully my girlfriend and I will be back in Stockholm soon and we will definitely consider staying here as our first option.
