                    Location close to Gamla Stan & subway station, free internet access, breakfast

                    The room was cold even in May. There is currently construction work just next to the hotel boat, so it is quite noisy in the rooms closest to the construction area, from early in the morning to late at night.

                    Breakfast, View, Location, Personnel. Further it is just an adventure to sleep on a boat and something to remember. Unbeatable with this location and this price!

                    If you can afford it, take a room with view on the bay. Not only due to the view, but also due to the fact that you are able to open the window to enhance the air circulation.

                    Nice ship. Central area. View is magnificent. Metro station is 5 min away. Good breakfast. Free Internet. 24h service. Room is not so small as it is written.

                    Smell from outside. Constructions near hotel.

                    Fantastic location, cabins although small and have bunk beds are more than adequate for a short break and have the added bonus of their own shower and toilet. There was a lovely buffet breakfast with plenty of choice. We did not eat in the restaurant so cannot comment, but it looked a very romantic setting for that special evening.

                    We had a small porthole window which given it's position we were unable to look out of or open. But this did not spoil our stay.

                    The fact that is a real boat; the staff; the views from my room's window

                    The breakfast was pretty poor.

                    The hotel is extremely well located in the old town, 200 meters from subway and 5-10 minutes walking from central station. Room is not that small, toilets a lot better than I expected from a boat, very good breakfast and good wi-fi everywhere. I definitely recommend this hotel.

                    It is not a budget hotel, it is a good value one. In the same way, it is inside a boat, so rooms and toilets are not that big.

                    Good location

                    Very poor Internet, was one of the things they advertised but it didn't work in the rooms

                    This hotel is a bit of a novelty and has a great atmosphere. Breakfast was really good.

                    It was fun staying in the old boat cabins but the room was tiny and cramped. The bathroom was very small and it was difficult to fit luggage in the room.

                    The views from the boat were lovely. Right in the old part of the city was a draw for us

                    Access for disabled poor, stairs very steep - should have checked this before. No step ladder for bunk bed which was very difficult to access for older person

                    Tough to beat the location, easy access to City Hall and the Gamla Stan. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff...Newly renovated bathrooms were nice.

                    The upper/outside deck would have been great if it was maintained and updated, but because it wasn't, there was hardly anyone up there, which didn't surprise me...Seems like an easy fix, so it was particularly disappointing...Also, a more varied breakfast -- from one day to the next -- would have been a bonus...Though it was very good, the exact same meats, style of eggs, pastries, etc., did get a little tiresome for my Wife and I after three in a row. I still recommend the hotel, however, especially for friendly staff, location and unique experience.

                    Location right in old town. lovely views from dining room and ship. quaintness of cabin and lounge. good breakfast, spacious cabin size for a ship.pleasant staff for most part. beautiful new shower room with powerful shower, very clean and comfortable.

                    Some of the reception staff could hav e been more pleasant. Smell from drains in shower room/toilet quite overpowering at times. I think they did have a problem at that time as some toilets were out of use for work to be done as we were leaving.

                    I loved my stay at this hotel. It was very very comfy. I loved the economical layout. The location simply could not be beat. It was very restful. The breakfast is pretty good and the restaurant is also a great plus as it's right there. The staff is very helpful as well.

                    The only down side about this is that the flush toilets make a lot of noise. |It owuld depend on where your room is if you could hear the other rooms swoosh. But this is a boat and I think this was their only option for good service! It works perfectly otherwise! Honestly, this yachis so great, that I would come back and this particular issue would not deter me form returning for another pleasant stay. It's also is at the very top of my busget. Worth it, but it's not an inexpensive option. Also when I booked through this website, there was some comfusion. I wanted five nights, It saidthat was not available, so I booked three. I was able to add the other two nights on at the hotel, however I then lost out on the reduction for the longer stay. I was not too thrilled about this

                    Wonderful location; easy walking distance to Gamla stan, many museums, attractions & cruises. Great restaurant on board which is a bonus. Will definitely stay there again.

                    Breakfast was a little basic & staff did not understand gluten free requirements.

                    The location was fabulous. I also had a lovely room facing the water. Mine was a Captain's cabin, very comfortable and big enough. My colleague's was a sailor's cabin. It was quite small - but this is a yacht! The yacht was also very quiet loved the history associated with it, loved having a sauna at the end of a day's touring, and loved sitting out watching the sun set at the bar/cafe next door.

                    I guess some people could complain about the size of the rooms but this is to forget where they are staying. This is not the right place for people who need a lot of space.
