The property is situated in the heart of Old Town Gamla Stan.It is about 5 minutes from the nearest train station. It is in an old building which means that you have to carry your suitcase up a long flight of stairs. The rooms are warm. The kitchen has a microwave, kettle and fridge, and tables to sit at. The lady at the front office is very helpful.
