Lady Hamilton Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

A family owned boutique hotel stuffed full of whacky object d’art. It took us just ten minutes to walk from the main railway station pulling our cases, much better than the £17 quoted taxi service from the station! A very friendly welcome from the receptionist. We were in room 11 on the first floor. A long thin room facing the street. Two single beds which were end to end as this was the only way they would fit! In common with most reported rooms there was almost no drawers to put things in but there was a small hanging space. Despite being at the front of the hotel we found no major disturbance from street noise of the nearby church bells but that might have been because of the ear plugs!  A compact modern bathroom was more than adequate and a problem with a blocked bathroom sink was quickly dealt with whilst we were out for dinner. Free, 24/7 tea and coffee making facilities on each floor plus a welcome ice machine. A great buffet breakfast for such a small hotel. As our long weekend continued we more and more appreciated what a great location this hotel was. Highly recommended

Just back from the weekend in Stockholm. Four girls traveling, we stayed in the apartments which are a 2 minute walk after checking in at the Hotel. We were in the top floor apartment, which has 2 stories, 1 1/2 bath. Two large sitting areas and a kitchen. Location in Gamla Stan was perfect. We had a 3 day transit pass and could get anywhere easily. 5 minute walk to the Royal Palace, Nobel Museum and Storkyrkan. I would definitely stay here again!

I am re-posting this after the hotel requested Tripadvisor to remove this review. Tripadvisor agreed with me that the review does follow all guidelines and asked me to re-post it. --- My wife and I are travelling with our 8 week old baby. Our baby had soiled his diaper and as we were right in front of this hotel we decided to ask at the reception if they had a bathroom we could use to change our baby's diaper. In the past, we have had to ask for different kinds of help from hotels that we were just walking by (asking for directions, calling a cab, and yes, asking for a bathroom), and always received a warm "of course". I imagine that because even if we were not customers of those hotels at the time they decided to show some basic empathy and also think of how this reflected on their hotels. This time, however, it was very different. We were greeted by a very cold and awkward "Oh, I am not authorized to let you use the bathroom" followed by a long silence. Not even a suggestion of where we might find one or any simple sign of being caring or serviceful. Not only that, but this same receptionist also rolled her eyes and stared at us blankly as if we were ruining the aesthetics of her precious reception while we struggled to put our baby in a carrier with extra blankets as it was around 5 degrees outside. There was another receptionist there as well, who simply decided to keep looking in a different direction, as if we were unwanted beggars asking for money. We do find the lack of empathy shown from the receptionists at this hotel not only troubling but completely shameful. I am completely surprised, in a negative way, on the untasteful reaction shown by both receptionists at this hotel. Funny enough, minutes before this we had talked about wanting to stay at your hotel on a future visit to Stockholm given its location. Needless to say, this will not happen.

We had stayed in Gamla Stan before and enjoyed it very much. This time we stayed at The Lady Hamilton. You could see the wall of the Royal Palace from our room. Also we were up one street from the main pedestrian shopping walkway so you got right into the feel of the city when you stepped out the door. Wonderful huge free breakfast every morning downstairs. hotel staff very friendly , helpful and knowledgeable.

We stayed here for two nights. Had a room on the top floor, clean, very comfy beds, good size TV, and quirky decor. Minibar, always a plus. The ceiling windows are electrical and very slow, but it gets very warm and we were grateful for the fresh air, there’s also an AC. The shower is very good, (but stay away from the odd shampoos, smells strange and made my hair very dry), floor has heating and I really liked the massive fluffy towels. Tea and coffe making facilities in corridor. Nice touch! Breakfast is truly excellent. Both hot and cold options, buffe style, and everything is very high quality. Even the ham must have come from a butcher and not just a supermarket. I can be a bit iffy about scramble in hotels, but this was great! Location obviously great, we walked mayb 15 mins to the main train-and metro station. Highly recommend!

We stayed 4 nights in this hotel. It is in a great location in Gamla Stan, close to the royal palace and church bells. Rooms were small but perfectly formed, loads of hot water for the shower and the underfloor heating in the bathroom was lovely. There's a tea and coffee station on each floor so you can sit out there as an extra space. The breakfast choice was great and included gluten free options. It was a great base for us to go out and explore every day.

A cozy, tidy and elegantly also little shabby (but if the house is 300+ years old, I think it is allowed) hotel, with a quirky interior design. Huge bed, soft pillows and a view directly to Gamla Stan. Add the friendly staff and lovely breakfast (raspberry jam to die for) and you have the perfect place for a nice stay in Stockholm’s most charming part.

The Amy Studio is an annexe to the Lady Hamilton Hotel. This spacious self-catering apartment is located in an ajoining cobbled street in the Gamla Stan . A large, well appointed room with a very comfortable bed. An excellent location in the Old quarter. All hotel facilities are available including a good breakfast spread in the Hotel's Cellar Restaurant. Highly recomended. TIP: to escape the crowds & bustle of the city, take a day trip (train) to the attractive traditional village of Sigtuna. Well worthwhile

position is great - in between Gamla Stan (the old part of town) and close to the cathedral and the royal palace, so even if you've got scarcity of time you cannot but be 'forced' to wander among its narrow streets and alleys. room was fine, breakfast was fine. on the down side, fairly expensive compared to value. the central part of Stockholm is quite small and if you can easily move around (expecially if you rent a bike), so the range of the very good positions available gets wider and there's no point in paying a premium for this position - also, this is actually the turistic part of Stockholm but at night bars and restaurants where locals and posh people go are elsewhere. the bathroom was old - expecially the faucets; the shower was all but powerful and the control device was not properly functioning - it was very hard not to have it going on leaking water even when not in use. the sink was very small and you could not but flood the whole bathroom when taking a showering or simply washihng your face in the sink. staff was ok, courtesy was there and the occasional smile but not much warmth. they've been efficient however.

This hotel does not merit the high ranking given on trip advisor. I love boutique hotels but this was a very expensive joke! We had a superior room with only skylights and no window and so small we could not get into bed on one side without stooping. Very poor mattress quality. No shelves or drawers for unpacking. Reception desk clerk not local and could not answer questions re nearby sights. It was a huge disappointment and hugely overpriced. More like a student hotel than a 4 star establishment in spite of the kitschy décoré. Good location but certainly not a place to spend 3 nights.
