Hotel description Scandic Gamla Stan

Experience a medieval atmosphere in Stockholm’s most magical quarter.

Narrow alleyways, taverns, cafes, stores and closeness to the seats of power of the Swedish Parliament, the civil service headquarters and the Royal Palace all make a stay in Gamla Stan (the Old Town) a fantastic experience with amazing roof terrace views. The Rica Hotel Gamla Stan is located in a charming 17th-century building, with the Stockholm Cathedral, “House of the Nobility” and the “Slussen” (an area named after the locks between Lake Mälaren and the Baltic Sea) just around the corner.

The standard single rooms are furnished in Gustavian style, creating a restful atmosphere and a historical environment that our guests really appreciate. All rooms have hardwood floors and decorative carpets. These rooms have 90 cm or 120 cm wide single beds, ensuring a good night’s sleep. The standard double rooms are equipped like the standard single rooms and provided with 90 cm wide twin beds or one 160 cm wide double bed. All our guests have access to free WLAN Internet connection.

A pick-up service for your car is available on weekdays from 07:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. and weekends from 07:00 a.m. to 09:00 p.m., extra charges apply. If you’re parking yourself, we recommend the OK/Q8 car park on Katarinavägen near Slussen, which is open round the clock. Please contact the reception to get information about the prices.

Nice and cosy. Good beds. Very nice bathroom. Small, but I don't need more. Very nice breakfast buffet.

Rooms were thin-walled. You could hear the next door neighbor moving, flushing the toilet, etc. Luckily my neighbor did not make much noise. Expensive, but on par with comparable hotel rooms.

Hotel is located in the center of old town Gamla Stan. Excellent room, nicely decorated in antique style, yet modern and up-to-date features. Free WLAN. Great roof terrace. Friendly staff.

Mediocre breakfast (like elsewhere in Scandinavia).

A wonderful location for seeing the sights in Gamla Stan and other places in Stockholm. I recommend buying the Stockholm Card before leaving since we saved lots of money...with museum entrance and transportation. The subway system is about two blocks from the hotel. Overall, a clean nice hotel located well for visitors.

Do bring your own washcloth...none provided. Also, towels could be fluffier and in more supply. (I did not ask for more, so perhaps they would have brought more.) However, we were supplied two thin hand towels, two thin bath towels and one thin bath mat.

Very well located, close to the metro. A lot of restaurants around.

The breakfast room too small.
