    One of the best experiences of my life, friendly staff and clean apartment/room. I stayed 2 months so far and it is awesome. I will keep staying as long as I can. The boat has a lot of caracter and a cozy feel. The wifi/lounge area is big and conformable. Not too crowded. There is no kitchen but they serve breakfast buffet for extra price. If you stay long term like a month you must pay a small cleaning fee which is totally worth it. The cleaner is professional and all personal items were untouched. I highly recommend this boat with it's awesome crew. 6 stars out of 5, very pleased! !!

    I stayed here three nights in a cabin and for the price you cannot fault the place. The boat is slightly showing her age... Being built in 1953 but that adds to the overall charm. Breakfast was included and not bad. I would definitely stay again..... Oh and the shower was amazingly strong and hot.

    It's was really nice place to stay. Different from other hotels. You have to keep in mind that it is a boat. So standard rooms beds are a bit narrow. Perfect for just sleeping. And if it is possible try to book for a room with private bathroom. Your life will be easier in the morning! Breakfast was typical bread with cheese and ham. Nothing special.

    Location location .... you will have a hard time finding a better location in Stockholm. The ship was amazing luxury 80 years ago. Today, it is quaint, nostalic, charming, and a bit worn down. The ships crew were friendly, amazing, and really dedicated to help you out with whatever your need. Location and crew deserve 5 stars each. Breakfast 1 star. Rooms 2 stars.

    People working in the reception and the rooms were great. People working at the bar were unmotivated with their work and with life. We had to manage with them speaking Swedish to us, served us a beer 23:20 at night without saying anything about closing time, started cleaning around and stopped the music 23:30,and shortly after turned off the lights and we could hear from the bar area "I need to close". Not ideal I would say.

    First the pros the price is cheaper than everything thing else in the area. The location is great. Stayed at the Hilton the week prior to our stay here and we saved hundreds every night. We stayed here with our family because I thought my 3 year old would think it was really cool to stay on a ship. The staff is super friendly and very helpful with anything you need. There was a free washer and dryer which was so nice because we couldn’t find a laundry in the area. If you are going to use the washer/dryer google how to use it as it will save you a lot of trial and error. The buses, ferries, cruise ships, taxied, and the hop on hop off are right next to the ship The cons the ship is 65 years old so it is very dated but they do a good job of keeping it and the rooms clean. We rented the suite. The room is just OK with nothing special we did have two windows with one that opened. The worst thing about the stay is out room was above were the trash is stored at the back of the ship. The smell or stench from all that garbage seeps into the room. Took me two days to figure out where the smell came from.

    The staff is friendly and helpful. Our booking was somehow misplaced by the Booking agent but the receptionist found a cabin for us anyway while we enjoyed our dinner on board. The cabin itself was extremely tiny and noticeably worn, and we slept on a bunk bed, but the whole experience was actually very exotic and unique in a good way. It felt like a visit to the crew quarters more like an actual stay in a rented cabin. It was really fun though! The food was fresh and good quality, however, the variety was a bit low both in the bar and during breakfast. I only recommend it to flexible travelers.

    Glad we could book this last minute, but it wasn't the nicest place to sleep. The mattresses were not that comfortable and the walls were really thin, we could hear our neighbours as if they were in the room with us. The room was quite dusty and the bathroom was really damp. The staff was friendly and the included breakfast buffet was pretty good.
