Lady Hamilton, Stockholm. We caught the Arlanda Express from the airport to Central Station. I booked the tickets online, way in advance and they were heavily discounted for July and August. A taxi from outside the station to Lady Hamilton was 17€ (It is walkable,but dependent on how light you are travelling). The Hotel is within 100 mtrs of the medieval square, Stortoget, in Gamla Stan, so is well placed for quick sightseeing, particularly if time is tight (we were catching a cruise,the following day). Incidentally, a one course meal, for two, with large beer and glass of wine, in one of the square's restaurants, was 60€. Heading off into the outlying side streets would probably have been cheaper. We had a top floor room, essentially an attic room. Tastefully designed, with electric roof window openers, quirky sitting area, great bathroom and usefully fast wifi. It also had controllable air con, and heating. We required the latter, as the temperatures were unseasonably cold. In the hallway (on every floor), which was decorated with colourful,interesting antiques, there was a coffee/tea making facility (free), which was very welcome. The breakfast was excellent, with the usual continental offerings, plus bacon,sausage, scrambled egg,etc. On leaving, the desk staff called a taxi (Stockholm Taxis) to deliver us to Berth 38, at Frimhaven docks (Royal Caribbean), 23€, to the check in building. To sum up, I couldn't find any fault with this establishment, staff, or location, and would happily return.
I have just spent two nights at the Lady Hamilton. This was a great hotel, located in the heart of Gamla Stan and close to many attractions. The hotel is also within easy walking distance of all types of public transport. I had a single room which was well equipped, cozy, but not too small. The bathroom was spacious and the shower had lots of wonderful hot water. Breakfast was also lovely. The breakfast room is like you are sitting in someone's kitchen. Many choices and the coffee was good. I really liked the quirkiness of the hotel, location and cost considering the location. My only criticism was I had a front room which was a little noisy, but the positives definitely outweigh the negatives. I would not hesitate in recommending this hotel to others.
The hotel is in the centre of the old town. Easy walking distance to many attractions and to public transport. The room was large with space to move. It was pleasant to get fresh air by opening windows!
It's in the Gamla Stan, next to Storkyrkan, Nobel Museum and The Royal Palace. Couldn't be located better. Looks old, authentic, unusual - still using ordinary keys with giant metal labels. Rooms aren't too spacious, but interiors are well decorated with small old details and everything functioned well. They also have sauna! Nice buffet in the morning.
Excellent location in Gamla Stan ..the Old Town.. near the Cathedral and Royal Palace. My single room on the second floor was well laid out with a very easy to use spacious shower and opening window..there was no Air conditioning' The Breakfast Buffet was extensive including Swedish cuisine and Gluten free options. A much appreciated Tea and Coffee station was located on every floor with availability 24/7 and a place to sit and enjoy .great after a day's sightseeing in Stockholm
One of the most interesting hotels I have ever stayed in - packed with amazing antiques and unusual objects, but having up-to-date facilities and equipment. Great location near Gamla Stan station, and less than 10 minutes walk to the Central Station, right by the Palace - you couldn't find a hotel with a better location. Great service, very friendly staff, wonderful breakfast both in terms of choice as well as in terms of quality (including some nice Swedish delicacies)... incredible coffee too. Being a tourist area it is expensive to eat out around the hotel, and if you keep the window open it can be bit noisy at times, but otherwise just about perfect. Small rooms, but not cramped because of the high ceilings.
We rented Studio Amy from the Lady Hamilton Hotel. The apartment is right around the corner from the hotel, down a quiet, narrow street that is just off one of the main streets in Gamla Stan. I was a bit worried by the dark and dreary entry to the apartment, but once we opened the door, it was great! The furnishings are beautiful, and the flat is a comfortable good size. It was quite warm, and other than a little fan in the closet, there was no way to cool down the apartment. By night time it was comfortable, though. The bathroom is small and I was a little frustrated about where to put things until I discovered an empty cabinet for toiletries. If you wash clothes, allow plenty of time; while it's great to have a washing machine, the cycle took over two hours. The kitchenette was well supplied, and everything was spotless. I was concerned about noise, but that was not a problem, and the blackout curtains kept the apartment dark during the long July nights. As for the hotel, you should definitely book the sauna for a private visit. The plunge pool is an old well that has been sealed, and there is a nice sitting area to enjoy after you are finished in the sauna. My interaction with the staff was a mixed bag. Some were helpful and friendly, others not so much. One morning I asked about taking a ferry to Vaxholm in the evening. The woman at the front desk didn't even look at me and just said "they're sold out." While tours were, indeed, sold out, I figured out the ferry situation by myself and had a lovely trip to Vaxholm. Another day we were waiting for a tour guide, and the man at the front desk clearly did not want us sitting in the small lobby. However, we did have good, friendly service at check out when we requested a taxi. If you want to stay in Gamla Stan, I would definitely recommend Studio Amy at the Lady Hamilton Hotel.
The Lady Hamilton is a small boutik hotel in Gamla stan. The location could not be any better. You are just a short walk from everything. The hotel was decorated with nautical items and traditional Swedish furnishings. The room was cozy snd comfortable. The breakfast (included) was fresh, pretty and delicious. Lots of meats,eggs, breads and so much more. If we return to Stockholm we will definitely return to Lady Hamilton The picture are of the public spaces
A lovely old wooden figurehead from the prow of a boat greets you when you walk in the door. There are all sorts of very interesting pieces throughout the hotel including a fabulous ship model. The hotel is beautifully located if you want to stay in old town. It's a bit noisy at night. The Nobel Museum and the Royal Palace are both just around the corner. My single room was very small. No drawers at all, and a closet about the width of an ironing board, The bed was comfy and the bathroom was perfect. The breakfast is delicious, and the hotel has a traditional snack in the later afternoon.
We stayed 2 nights in the hotel, and 2 in one of the apartments run by the hotel (Cassandra, right across the street from the hotel). The hotel breakfast was nice and the room was great. It was disappointing we were roomless for about 6 hours when shifting between the hotel and the apartment, and the young man working on the front desk didn't seem very keen to try to find a solution... that was the only frustrating blemish on an otherwise great stay.
