“Charming and Adorable.”
This Hotel is so incredibly charming and adorable and the staff so friendly and helpful that you can't really fault it. Packed with antiques relating to Lord Nelson and perfectly clean it presents better than most 4* hotels. Yes, the rooms are small but it has a nautical theme so expect a ship's cabin and you'll love it. It is perfectly placed in the centre of Gamla Stan, [the old town], so walkable from Central Station and to all the sites; round the corner from Cathedral and Royal Palace. It can be noisy but only because it is near the Churches with bells that chime the hour. Also the old town consists of quaint, cobbled streets that people stroll down in the evenings. But none of this bothered me, it's just something to consider. This hotel has lots of character and unlike the faceless, sterile, corporate options. Really hope you may visit this hotel even for 1 night as even the bedroom door makes your room unique.
“Highly recommend this hotel.”
Lovely hotel, centrally located and really quirky. Loved the decor. The Nelson theme was throughout the hotel and yes it was cosy (its the narrowest hotel in Sweden - but it just added to the charm. If you are booking its worth asking for a 'Captain's Cabin' as it has more room. The staff were so helpful and the breakfast was more than adequate to set you up for the day. You'll need it as eating out is really expensive! Great location - right in the heart of Gamla Stan (the old town).
“Lord Nelson Comes To The Rescue!”
Attractive hotel with very helpful staff. Plenty of food at breakfast and lots of choice. Good location to get around Stockholm. If you're willing you can walk to most places. When our flight was cancelled, and we were stranded at the airport on our journey home, they came to the rescue with a room at their sister hotel the Lady Hamilton. The information desk at Arlanda Airport had told us there were no rooms available in Stockholm or the area around the Airport. So we rang the Lord Nelson and they were brilliant. We would definitely recommend either the Lord Nelson or Lady Hamilton hotels.
“Seven night stay at the Lord Nelson Hotel”
My husband and I stayed at the Lord Nelson Hotel from July 22 through July 29, 2008. We had a double room the first and last nights, as my husband was traveling elsewhere while I stayed in Stockholm for the entire trip. As the hotel states, the building that houses the Lord Nelson is very narrow, so the rooms are small. However, the double was more than adequate for the two of us. We had two different doubles and one was larger than the other. My single room was small, but again, it was more than adequate for one person. All the rooms had big windows, very comfortable beds, and the bathrooms were very good also (no tub, but an excellent tiled shower). The staff was excellent, and the breakfast (included in the price) was also very good. It included a variety of breads, meats, cheeses, vegetables, fruit, cereals, and hard or soft boiled eggs. There was, of course, coffee, and tea, juices, milk, yogurt, jams and muffins. Finally the location couldn't be beat--right in the heart of the old town, Gamla Stan. I've traveled to many different European cities where many hotels have small rooms. It is just something that Americans aren't used to, and it can come as a surprise to first time travelers to Europe. That said, this hotel offers excellent service, comfort, and location, and I recommend it highly.
“Quirky, wonderful, nautical.”
A fantastic, quirky hotel. The narrowest hotel in Sweden at six meters wide, the Lord Nelson is nevertheless cleverly set out and doesn't feel as narrow as it is. On the first floor is a small library and free internet computer, and from the library you can look down on the main street of the Old Town. Other reviewers have described the rooms as small, but I found mine plenty big enough, with a lovely little writing desk and a porthole in the door to the ensuite bathroom. (Only a shower, however, and complimentary shampoo only from a dispenser in the wall, which is hardly that dreadful really.) A unique feature is the "poop deck", the roof where you can sit and look out at the city, which is beautiful in the evenings. The staff are ever so friendly, and breakfast is good; even, I, a vegan, found enough to eat. I highly recommend this hotel, which is in perhaps the spot which can rightly claim to be the very centre of Stockholm.
We received a very warm welcome to this charming hotel in Stockholm's pedestrian Old Town, from which we could walk just about anywhere we wished. Parking was tricky, requiring leaving the rental vehicle at the sister hotel, Lady Hamilton, around the corner. Staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful, and assisted us with a few snarls that we envcountered when we first arrived. Free Internet was very useful.
“Perfect location, full of character, great little hotel”
Great little place. The location could not be better, right in the heart of the Old Town, around the corner from the Royal Palace and very easy to get to. The nautical theme throughout the hotel is fun. The rooms are small but comfortable and it is much more interesting than a chain hotel. If you want large and impersonal I'm sure there are plenty of those in other parts of Stockholm. Service was great. The staff are super friendly and the hotel clean and well looked after. Breakfast is a good continental breakfast - toast, cereal, bread, cheese and meats. It is included in the price, and is not stale like in some larger hotels. Check out the roof garden too.
“small but perfectly formed”
I really enjoyed this place, yes the rooms are petite but they are more than sufficient, very comfortable and quiet. The location is excellent and you can step straight out into the centre of old stockholm, the staff are great, breakfast delicious and the sauna hot! I would definately stay here again.
Imagine a grid, four columns by three rows. Each square is the size of one-third of a single mattress. The rooms here consist of three squares for the bed, three for the bathroom, one for a closet, one for a desk with tv, one for the desk-associated chair. But I absolutely loved it. It was efficient, cozy, wooden. The continental breakfast, included with room, is quite excellent. This place is literally right in the middle of everything, too, and faces one of the main drags of Gamla Stan, the central "old town" neighborhood of Stockholm. You can walk to the train station and the bus station and an underground station. Strong recommend for solo travelers.
“Lovely centrally located hotel”
The Lord Nelson is a lovely, almost quaint, hotel. It's central location right in the middle of Gamla Stan is perfect for shopping, and was just the right place to be coming up to Christmas. My room was very small, which enhances the feeling of being in a ship's cabin. It was warm and clean, and as I was only needing it as a base for going out, it's size didn't matter. Breakfast was included, a help yourself buffet of bread/ham/eggs/cheese/cereal etc. This was very peaceful, and didn't finish till 11am. They had local and even one English newspaper. A very convenient and friendly hotel.
