Scandic Gamla Stan

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This is NOT a 4 star hotel. It is VERY worn, run down & needs to be renovated. Hotel staff are terrific, first rate front desk manager, but poor souls have to deal with a lot of disgrunteled customers over rooms that are not suitable to be rented out.

Really nice hotel, really enjoyed my stay. I will absolutely stay there again.

At one point nobody was at reception to hand me my old style metal key (upon return from a jog). Had to wait ~5 min for someone to turn up. Now they have just switched to magnetic keys, so should not be an issue in the future.

Always wanted to stay in the Gamla Stan and this was a perfect fit... close to the sights, the underground and more. Breakfast was superb.

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,

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Great location and staff! Would stay there again for sure.

Wonderful location. The breakfast was over the top! Service was good (but not outstanding). Would gladly stay here again! Highly recomended!

Hotel has a great location on a very quiet street in old town; with a walking distance to all the major tourist places, including a 5 minute walk to the Royal Palace or the Nobel Prize building. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast in the hotel was super good. The rooms were small, but VERY clean and comfortable with all the amenities and a plasma TV. GREAT HOTEL...I will stay there again next time I visit the beautiful city of Stockholm.

It was a great experience. Even though it was just one block from the action it was very quite. The rooms are great the feeling of being back in time but very well keep. I would recommend this Hotel anytime.

Very clean, nice atmosphere, good breakfast
