Liked: The boat is right in the middle of Stockholm, very convenient, yet a quiet location. Lovely view across the water. Cosy cabins, plentiful breakfast, helpful staff.

Disliked: The shower has no lock, and the door opens directly on the stairs, so potentially you can be exposed to anyone coming down, if the door gets opened at the wrong moment.

Liked: Lots of character, good value for money, good location

Disliked: Difficult to negotiate getting luggage on board / around, smelled musty - both to be expected really given that it is a boat and not a big problem

Liked: Novelty: You're sleeping in a "historical" 100 year old boat! Lovely interior with maritime and ship-related decoration. Location is OK - a 5-10 min walk to the closest metro station. Rooms are clean and comfortable (although tight, as they're boat cabins).

Disliked: The rooms are a bit cramped but that's understandable since they're boat cabins, just bear that in mind. They're clean and comfortable nonetheless. Room rates could be a bit cheaper. Towels aren't included (20 DKK to rent).
