Hotel Skeppsholmen

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

What a find - I picked this hotel out based on favorable reviews, and was not disappointed! The Skeppsholmen is, to some extent, off the beaten path, but exactly what I was looking for. The staff were friendly and very helpful with good suggestions for getting around town. The hotel restaurant was great, featuring traditional Swedish fare and a good mix of beer, wine and other spirits full breakfast was included in my hotel rate (and I don't think I had chosen any special rate). My room was spare but comfortable, with a great view of the river and Kastelholmen (sp?). The hotel is located in a renovated barracks - elevators provide access to second and third floors, and there is an exercise room in the main building on the second floor. In terms of getting around Stockholm, there is a bus (#65) that gets you to central station (T-centralen) in less than 10 minutes, or a ferry that runs from Slussen to Djursgarden to Skeppsholmen and back to Slussen. The bus and ferry are both part of the local transit system (SL.com) and I purchased a 3 day card which made travel around town pretty intuitive. Only issue is that the bus doesn't run late into the night (not a problem for me), and the ferry stops running around 7ish (at least during the autumn season). I definitely would return with family for a vacation, and definitely also would return for business.

We stayed in a standard room with our 1-year-old, and found the hotel staff to be incredibly welcoming of us and our child. The restaurant staff, in particular, was very accommodating. (All the meals we ate in the restaurant were delicious as well). That being said, the room was barely large enough to fit a (not-even-full-size) crib. The only place it would fit was in front of the door, which meant we had to wheel it out of the way in order to leave the room. Not a deal-breaker, but something to keep in mind if you're traveling with a child (or just a lot of luggage).

we loved our stay here. Opt for an XL room. It's worth having the extra space.

A very pleasant, pretty location, nice room, great breakfast, staff is good (not brilliant but probably because they are just a little inexperienced and young) on a small island walking distance from the center of town. Delightful walk from and back to the hotel. We had a room on the first floor overlooking the garden and some great building in the distance. Very pretty. And you can rent city bikes from there to get anywhere you like to get to in the city. I would book it again if I were to return to Stockholm.

Walking from Stockholm Central Station (about 15 minutes) over the bridge that brought us to Skeppsholm Island, we fell under the spell. Here in the middle of Stockholm is a tranquil island full of trees, historic buildings and fantastic boats. The hotel is a treasure. In a historic (1699?) inn - but renovated in super modern style, the rooms are small but very comfortable. The waterfront gardens are a delight. The breakfast was beyond amazing. Dinner in the hotel restaurant was good (but pricy). We were able to get around Stockholm easily, by renting bikes and using the boat ferry (taxis in Stockholm are the biggest rip off ever). But Skeppsholm Island (and the connected little Castle Island) was so enchanting that we didn't want to leave. We explored (and ate lunches) at the Modern Art Museum, and really enjoyed all the wooden boat building stuff.

Built in a renovated 1699 marine barracks, this hotel is not your anonymous international hotel, but rather feels very much of the place. It's convenient to the city and yet feels like a getaway with its quiet, lovely walks, and the Modern Art Museum in its backyard.

Lovely hotel in a great location - very central and within walking distance of most attractions. The room we had was a little small, but then it is a 'boutique hotel', and I thought quite reasonable value for money, especially as the room rate included a very good breakfast buffet,

We spent three days in this very comfortable hotel for a family birthday celebration. Staff went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. Comfortable clear rooms. Spoil yourselves to the very tasty local breakfast buffet on the hotel terrace. Only a short walk to all great things Stockholm has to offer : world class restaurants, musea, shopping ...

Just a great experience! Right in the heart of things, yet private and quiet. It was exactly what we were looking for. I would stay there again in a heartbeat if I'm ever lucky enough to go back to Stockholm. One caveat: if you can't walk well, this may not be the best place for you. There is a city bus that stops very close but runs only every 20 minutes and stops at 9:30 p.m. For most, this is no big deal. The walk from many great restaurants is short and pleasant -- but my 80 year old Mom would need to take a taxi so she might feel isolated.

We loved staying at the Hotel Skeppsholmen. It was very comfortable, with a very friendly staff, in a very quiet part of the city. It's right next to the modern art museum, right next to buses and ferries, and is a short and pretty walk to the wonderful national art museum and the old part of town.

We did a lot of sightseeing while we in Stockholm. Fortunately for us, where we stayed was close to many of the attractions we wanted to see so we were able to walk to them. When it was necessary to use transportation that too was very close to where we stayed.

Amazing service apart from a mix-up when I changed my taxi departure time. A perfect position in Stockholm and very peaceful.

wonderful experience! basically in the heart of stockholm, 10 minutes from anything, yet on a wooded island which feels like your private estate. staff is friendly and accomodating, rooms are pristine. breakfast is ample and can be eaten outdoors with wonderful views of the water.

We loved the location of the hotel and the room. We had the large lake view room on the 3rd floor with a beautiful view of the park and lake. Also loved the inspired design - very artful lighting and the bathroom fixtures etc. were top notch. They make a big deal of the fact that the beds are Duxiana beds. They were not bad but I must say that I would not any longer consider buying one after having slept on one for 3 nights - definitely nothing special. The old town Gamlastan, Södermalm, Norrmalm and Östermalm are all in walking distance - and the walk is really pretty too! LOVED this hotel!

Very nice new hotel in a quiet off the beaten path part of central Stockholm. Room was on the smaller side but nice and clean with excellent shower. Hotel has excellent restaurant. Very close to modern art museum. Ask for upper floor, lower floor can be noisy with people walking past the window.
