    Stay in another boat


    A well known sight in the city, Mälardrottningen is moored at Riddarholmen in the city centre with walking distance to everything. I have never stayed there but people who do only have one complaint and that is that the rooms are small - i.e. just what they expected really since they are on a boat! It can also therefore get a bit warm, but the romantic factor is high and it is a good alternative if you want something more upmarket than a hostel but still want to stay on a boat whilst in Stockholm.

    Hotel afloat


    It's a great experience to stay on the Malardrottningen but not for a long stay ... a couple of nights only is best because the space available in the cabins is limited.... as on all ships.

    Because it is docked near the Old City it makes for easy walking around that area with delightful photo opportunities. ..... and it's only a few minutes walk into the main shopping centre.

    If you decide to do the canal trip the Malardrottningen is berthed only 1-200 metres away ... so a few days there and then afteer breakfast all you need to do is wander down to the Juno or her sister ship.

    There are a couple of nice restaurants on board and good facilities for the business person.

    Unique Quality: Enjoy the fantastic harbour views while you are afloat ... and without fear of getting seasick!

    Directions: Old City

    Unique Quality: Staying on a ship is always nice. They have a great breakfast buffet, with a lot of typical swedish dishes. The location is perfect as well, on the beautifull island Riddarholmen, only a few moments from all the attractions Stockholm has to offer.

    Directions: Located on the island Riddarholmen.

Destination Stockholm/Stockholm a la Carte

by YPie

I booked my hotel accommodation through Destination Stockholm which includes a "Stockholm a la Carte" card. This is very similar to a Stockholm Card as far as I can tell.

It gets you free transport, free boat trips (this is only on selected departures though for some trips so make sure you plan ahead and book yourself on one of the free trips to avoid missing out). It also gets you into a load of museums including Skansen, the Royal Palace and Drottningholm, but not the Vasa Museum.

Of course you can buy a Stockholm Card and a separate accommodation package, but why do that when a package is available that cost me no more than a room only deal would have done elsewhere. Maybe it helped that I was travelling alone and groups wouldn't get such a good deal, but for me it saved me bags of money, and my hotel (the Esplanade) couldn't have been much better, another option was to stay on Malardrottningen, the boat moared off Riddarholmen so you're not sacrificing anything in terms of the quality of the accommodation either.

Definitely worth checking out!

The picture is Drottningholm - get there and back for free on the boat and get in free too!

At the West of Gamla Stan, the small island of Riddarholmen, Knight's Island, is situated. It's also part of the historical centre of Stockholm and is completely filled with the most beautiful old buildings.

The central square of the island, the one you enter when you cross the bridge, is Birger Jarl Square. Here you can see a statue of the man who founded the city of Stockholm 750 years ago. Around this square you can see two large palaces and the impressive Riddarholmskyrkan.

What you really should do when you are in the city, is have a walk along the island during or right after sunset. From the westside of the island you'll have a fantastic view of the Malar Lake, of the other island of the city and of the Cityhall that is just at the other side of the water. You'll see the very small alleys you can walk through, with the original cobble stones, and for the rest you'll most probably won't see anything at all. After sunset this island is very quiet, and a great place to relax.

At the southern banks of the island there is a big, white ship called Malardrottningen. This once was the private yacht of the American millionair Barbara Hutton, but today it's used as a nice hotel in the very centre of Stockholm.
