Entering this 17th-century building is like stepping into a comfortable home from centuries past. The hotel is situated in an unbeatable location amidst the historical atmosphere of Gamla Stan.

Great Old Town Hotel

Right in the heart of the action, friendly staff and outstanding breakfast. Perfect spot to see Stockholm, especially if on foot. Room was small, as per other reviews, but it was perfect if you are spending most of your time exploring,

Excellent sight-seeing setting

The hotel is literally just steps away from the subway station and only one stop to the main rail station in Stockholm. It was perfect for walking tours of Gamla Stan, and there are many sights and restaurants/cafes nearby. Breakfast was excellent. The only complain was the in-room wi/fi signal was not very strong. In the lobby it was fine though. I would stay there again.

Charming hotel with a few qualifications.

The decor is lovely and the staff could not be nicer. The breakfast buffet is one of the best we've ever had. The qualifications are in the summer when windows are open, it is very noisy at night. Also, we found the bed too soft; that is an individual preference, however.

Really a perfect family vacation

My husband and I booked 2 nights here, before our sons were to join us from Seattle. After looking at facilities around the city we decided to extend our stay here and get an extra room for our kids. The Hotel Rica did an amazing and seemless job of working out all my reservations, we stayed in the same room all 4 nights and they placed our boys in the room directly across the hall. We loved our rooms. We loved the breakfast and breakfast room. Healthy, nice variety of items and thoughtfully done. The staff in the breakfast room, and throughout the Hotel, were helpful and friendly. There isn't a better location to stay in Stockholm. We walked to the shopping street and Ice Bar. Visited Djurgarden and Skeppsholmen as well. Took a boat tour. Did a nice walking tour of Gamla Stan and then decided to just hang out in Gamla Stan, eating on Stortorget at the Grillska Huset and Chokladkoppen. We also all enjoyed shopping Gamla Stan. Lovely, comfortable and happy trip.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

We used the Rick Steves tour guide and found the most helpful travel hints, some that were incredibily detailed, about sight seeing, shopping, hotels and dining.

Great Breakfast, Too Expensive Hotel Rate

The hotel is good in terms of its location and breakfast. Staff is very friendly but I believe that based on the price per night the rooms are rather small. Otherwise it was a good stay.

Quiet as a morgue

It's in a good location - as long as they're not digging up the road as they were when I was there. Don't expect a lively, bustle of activity - there isn't one. It's for sleeping ... and breakfast (which was really quite good.) A lovely old-fashioned building - reasonably comfortable and good value in a city that is eye-wateringly expensive.

Loved the location and perfect breakfast.

I stayed there for 3 nights and loved the location. Walking distance to most attraction and train is a block away. I loved the breakfast, best I had seen in 2 weeks of travel in Scandinavia. The staff was helpfull. Only down side was late night noise that can be loud at times but it didn't bother me. Dan

Time-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

I tried a little "speed travel" since I had not much time off from work. I left hotel in shorts and long sleeve T and went for a long jog,walk , sightseeing. I visited museums, stop at cafe for lunch and came back 4 hrs later having a good feel of the city. Loved it.

Completely Disappointed

My room was cramped, about 8 foot square, with a child size bed and no place to put away clothes. All furniture and fabrics were decades old and tired. (Bathroom however was renovated and OK). This is a modest bed and breakfast, not a hotel. I had to leave and find another hotel.
