Very nice hotel a short boat/bus ride outside Stockholm city center. The hotel is situated just by the water and has a lovely outside garden were you can relax. The rooms are of good size and the interior is very nice. Hotel staff are helpful and the breakfast is superb! Recommend to use the boat if you are going to the town center, it takes aprox 20 min. The restaurant serves fantastic food aswell. If you are interested in running, pack your jogging shoes and go for a run along the waterside :)

I live in London and so chose this hotel because I did not want to be in the city centre but with easy access into Stockholm. The location is on the waterfront just a few minutes walk from the 443 bus stop from Slussen or the ferry stop from Nybroplan. There is an express train service or bus service from the airport to the Central station and either transport mode is easy to reach via the Stockholm metro. It is best to buy SL Access transport tickets at the airport. Everything is well signed so not difficult to negotiate. I was absolutely delighted with this hotel. I had a lovely room in the old part of the building with a balcony and seaview. The room was comfortable with a very large bed, lovely duvet and soft feather pillows (for me a real bonus). There is a safe for valuables, a good hairdryer and a well stocked minibar. The hotel has expanded and there is a new building behind the ones seen in the photograph housing many rooms of varying luxury which are equally spacious and equipped. I was most happy overlooking the water and the small outdoor garden. The one down side is that there are no facilities to make a cup of coffee or tea in the room. Perhaps this is something Swedish but I certainly missed not having that. There is an honesty bar in the sitting room where you can make tea or coffee. Tea bags by Newby which are good but the charge is quite expensive £3. In the evenings a bar and light meals are provided by two very helpful and kind cooks which can be eaten inside or out on the terrace in fine weather. The hotel also has a waterside restaurant just down the road near to the ferry stop. I will review that separately. Breakfast is provided in the adjoining building on the waterside which is decorated in traditional Swedish style. The buffet style is substantial with bacon & scrambled eggs, pancakes, boiled eggs, several delicious homemade breads, array of cold meats and cheese, fruit, cereals and yoghurt and wonderful compote of mixed berries which I loved the most eaten with muesli & yoghurt. If you are lucky you can sit by the windows and watch the boats go by, including huge seagoing liners! Lastly, the staff, Adam and a tall Viking called Simon treated me so well. Adam answered several questions by email prior to my arrival. It is not always my experience as a single traveller to be looked after really well (despite paying more as a single person one often seems to be regarded as less important) but these two young men did their best to make my stay a good one. Friendly, helpful with information, nothing too much trouble, both really excellent and good humoured. As a recommendation of how nice this hotel is I talked to several guests, one a Swedish gentleman who returns year after year and has also held conferences there and a couple from Copenhagen with their lovely Irish terrier who have stayed here several times as it is animal-friendly. I will hopefully be another one who returns again, I may try it in the snow! I loved it, for its friendliness, accessibility to the city, just 30 mins on the ferry, excellent breakfast, comfortable rooms and peaceful away from the bustle of the city. I also recommend booking direct with the hotel.

This hotel had been chosen amongst others through TripAdvisor ratings. You will not be disappointed. The hotel is very calm, peaceful, with nice surroundings. The see view is really good with tables and chairs to relax and enjoy refreshments. The bar offers snacks as well for the evening, and for more serious diners there is a restaurant at a 5 minutes walking distance. Our Newport large room enabled a good see view from the 4th floor, and the decoration is nice. The people at reception and bar were very helpful, and providing a good level of service. The hotel is accessible through taxi, bus and boat from Stockholm city center. We recommend the boat on normal days or taxi on arrival from airport after taking the Arlanda express train (25€). Definitely a great choice for our weekend in Stockholm. Highly recommended.

Very cosy, good service, nice rooms. Ask a room with sea view. Bar at the lobby serves simple food, Caesar salads were excellent and wine was good. Parking in the underground garage is also very convenient.

Stayed for one night on business function, and this hotel is a relaxed countryside hotel next to the sea with beautiful view over parts of Stockholm. Quiet, laidback and with good service. Rooms are good size with terrace overloking the sea.

I stayed here twice in May for work as our company has its Swedish office within walking distance. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The rooms are average size for Europe but well designed and laid out – or the two I stayed in were anyway as there are several sections to the hotel itself. Service excellent and one of the best hotel breakfasts that I have had. Sunset from the desk in room 120 was spectacular in May and really enjoyed the room although it lacked a balcony. Beautiful area. We have a lot of colleagues stay and some jokingly refer to it as ‘Hotel Jail’ given that it is a little isolated from downtown Stockholm. I did not mind. There are both buses and ferries nearby and it is just a short trip into the city. Easy to get downtown if you need. There are a number of restaurants within a short walk of the hotel as well as Nacka Forum only a fifteen minute walk away. Nacka Forum has a supermarket, booze store, pharmacy, restaurants, and pretty much everything else. There are also several walking trails nearby for just getting out and about. Good value for money and I would stay here if I was traveling to Stockholm personally rather than for business in the future. SPG hotel now.

A splendid hotel! The location and the view are unbelievable. Lovely scenery and good connections to Stockholm town. By boat just 25 minutes to the city centre. 45 minutes per taxi from Arlanda airport. Young staff very pleasant, good breakfast in the seperate villa. Book a room with seaview! No plastic in this hotel, everything organic. Simple but comfortable rooms. Book it if you want to stay just outside the city centre but still close.

Location: Trees and water, beautiful spot, nice views, very relaxing but difficult to get to. Rooms: Nice, comfortable, nicely decorated, most with great views. Service: Young staff here (and many other Swedish hotels) with little local knowledge, even to the point of not knowing what time the J Restaurant (two minutes away and associated with the hotel) closes. Service culture also only average as a result, e.g: Us: "I thought you might have taken our bags up to the room while we were out." Response: "Yes, we should have, sorry." Us: "You didn't tell us about the other ferry options that would have saved us a 2km walk". Response: "Sorry, they are a little more expensive and hard to find." Staff inconsistent, too: we asked for late check out and were told 12, then overheard someone else got 14.00. Cost: About USD 250 per night which isn’t too bad in Sweden, but USD 10.50 for a beer and 4.60 for a cup of tea (no tea or coffee in the rooms) is not nice. Pets: This is a really, really dog friendly hotel (much of Sweden is), but please not in the bar/lounge or at breakfast!

We enjoyed our stay at the Hotel J. The room with water view was pleasant and comfortable for our little family of three. The personal was friendly and helpful. The breakfast in the little seaside villa was nice and had a great selection. The trip with the ferry to Stockholm city is worthwhile taking. We are happy to recommend this place.

A pleasant hotel close to nature that offers beautiful views. Good breakfast. Friendly and helpful staff. Decent rooms. Good wifi connection. Close to the jetty and bus stop. But the neighborhood is not exactly exciting.
