"Wonderful city break in perfect hotel"
We loved this hotel and the city. The room was amazing - free upgrade on arrival much appreciated - the staff were friendly and great breakfasts. Location wonderful - part of the city but a world away. 15 minutes walk to the old city, 10 minutes to the ferries - and a choice of scenic walks to get there. We hope to return and wouldn't want to stay anywhere else.
"Great location, good food and good service"
Standard garden room in the adjoining building - all the usual facilities. Only gripe about the room was that the English language TV channels were not displaying properly but we didn't come to Sweden for that. Ate dinner twice at the hotel - food was very good both times and breakfast in the morning is an easy going affair. Best thing of all is the quiet location which is close enough to the centre of Stockholm that you have easy access to all the sites. Overall I'd highly recommend it.
"Met (and exceeded) all expectations"
The hotel delivered all it intended. It is deliberately laid back and unpretentious whilst being quietly efficient and 'classy'. Excellent breakfast without fuss. Did not want super American style 'in your face' service or would have gone elsewhere. Our room perhaps a little on the small side but you're only in it overnight and all comforts are provided. I'm sure larger rooms are available. Reception personnel are extremely approachable and helpful. The island is quiet and within walking distance of the major sights, can easily walk to Gamla Stan, Vasa museum, Abba museum, and department stores/shops in centre of city, as well as Modern Art museum which is on the island. As we got around quite a bit during our 4 day stay, I can honestly say that our hotel location could not have been bettered. Other places a little further afield can be accessed by excellent Stockholm public transport system.
"Bit of a disappointment"
Plusses: -nice decor in the rooms -wlan worked the whole stay(free and no log-in required) -nice location. I’ve been to Stockholm tens of times, but never ventured to Skeppsholmen. Minuses: -After our first night out of 2, both my and my partners key cards had stopped working. Our room was in a different building from the one with the reception. It was cold and windy(hotel is next to the ocean), so not nice experience. Went to the front desk building, waited over 10 mins for someone to appear(no calling bell).They fixed the cards, but did not issue an apology without being prompted. No explanation about the cards not working, either. -the 1st floor is at street-level, and right next to the sidewalk -> no privacy Breakfast not even basic level: 1.Fruit-salad made out of low-quality canned rawish fruits, with a poor selection of chopped mint added for pretentious hipster twist. 2.Coffee was not brewed, instead out of an automat. Also the container was empty, had to wait for someone from the staff to appear so I could ask for more. 3.The floors were really dirty and full of food droppings. 4.No staff around to take off dirty dishes or to make sure there was enough food. -The safe in the room is a joke, deep inside a cupboard and could barely fit a tablet. Laptop(12”) does not fit. -Spent awhile looking for a mini-bar, which is hidden in the night-stand(that is made to look like wooden drawers) All in all, I will not return nor recommend this establishment.
"Autumn Break "
Stockholm is an incredibly beautiful city and Hotel Skeppsholmen, located on the island of Skeppsholmen, was a perfect base to explore the capital. Lovely hotel, warm & comfortable room, friendly & helpful staff, fantastic restaurant, wonderful breakfast buffet. The hotel is only a few minutes walk from the city and seconds away from one of the ferry terminals. We stayed here in November and the many trees around the Hotel and island looked stunning in their Autumn colours. Perfect place for a stay in Stockholm.
