It was a nice hotel with heated bathroom floors and a lot of interesting antique things. Unfortunately, the bed wasn't that comfortable, there was no A/C and the rooms can be quite small.

Historical Traveler Reviews Lady Hamilton Hotel Stockholm
Great hotel with character & charm
Great little hotel. Really enjoyed Stockholm, and our stay in the Lady Hamilton Hotel was very enjoyable. Thanks to all the other reviews in Tripadvisor, I was quiet confident that we had booked a good hotel. Breakfast buffet was very good....fresh meats and cheese, cereals, fresh smoothie, fresh cut fruit salad, etc, everything one could need to get the day off to a great start. Location of hotel was very central and had a great choice of restaurants & cafes in the area. Staff were always very friendly. We stayed with our 7 month old baby, and cot was provided in room. Free internet access available in reception area..useful for my husband to check out the latest sport news! It was quiet warm in Stockholm during our stay, and the room (which was on the top floor) did not have air conditioning, so it was very warm in the room at night.
Charming, perfectly located hotel which would benefit from air conditioning
We really enjoyed our relaxing 3-night stay in this perfectly located, beautiful hotel, in June 2005. It's charming, very clean, offers a good choice at breakfast and the staff are pleasant and helpful. I loved the antique furniture so much that I actually took photos of the lobby. Thoroughly recommend booking the sauna for a couple of hours. A word of warning; we were allocated a room on the top floor (room 44) which we found totally unacceptable due to the excessive temperature. When we arrived on a sunny though not exceptionally hot morning the room was stifling. The roof windows do not appear to be able to adequately ventilate the room. It was so hot that we would have checked out if we had not been offered a cooler room, even though we had already paid up front. Room 10 wasn't nearly as pretty or as light, but at least it didn't feel like an oven. The Lady Hamilton Hotel would definitely benefit from air conditioning, and although we love this hotel we'd be unlikely to stay again in summer.
Perfect for family too
Lovely location, nice people. They do have a triple room which is a double + a separate single ideal for family. We were 2 adults and 2 kids (under 2) and could fit that room perfectly.
Do not expect a modern type of hotel but forniture and room style is very charming and old style.
We didn't have breakfast in the hotel but is full of nice coffee shop on the main street.
We've just returned from 3 nights at the Lady Hamilton, Gamla Stan. This hotel is in the best location for sight-seeing in Stockholm. It's right next to the palace in the old part of town and there are some fantastic restaurants close by.
The hotel itself is lovely - the staff are very helpful and the rooms are small but nicely decorated. The staircase alone is a sight! The breakfast was also ample and we would highly recommend this hotel.
Best location in Stockholm
This is a wonderfully charming hotel. Above all, the location in Gamla Stan (Stockholm's Old Town) immediately adjacent to the Cathedral, Royal Palace, and the main shopping street could not be surpassed by any other hotel in the city. But aside from the location, this hotel is simply stunning. All the rooms, including the lobby and breakfast room, are somewhat small, but that is to be expected of such an ancient structure. Every square inch of the hotel is covered with paintings, or displays Swedish antiquities, or contains memorabilia relating to Lady Hamilton & Lord Nelson. Our room contained an antique chandelier partially converted to electricity and an antique Swedish cupboard. Even the landings on each floor and the stairwell are decorated with antiques & paintings. Simply incredible, and an atmosphere you would NEVER find in a chain hotel. There is also a fabulous breakfast that is enough to have you fortified for shopping & sightseeing until the evening meal...no need for lunch after that kind of breakfast!!! Additionally, the staff were very nice and helpful, even mailing a shoe forgotten at the hotel back to the USA! I plan to stay here on another upcoming trip to Stockholm, it is a truly charming hotel in an enchanting and exciting city. My only complaint was the lack of a functioning fan in the bathroom, which could become quite humid, but this small fault was easy to overlook when compared to the many marvelous attractions of both the hotel and the city.
Small but cosey
One of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. Worth the money, friendly staff, super clean, tasty breafast... I had an excellent stay in this hotel and would definately go back if I'm in Stockholm again.
Great things come in small packages
I stayed in the Lady Hamilton in February 2004. The hotel is a 15th century merchant house, right next door to the Stockholm Royal Palace of King Carl XVI Gustav, in the heart of the Gamla Stan old town. Much of Gamla Stan is pedestrian only, but you can drive to the door of the Lady Hamilton. Inside it is more like a Venetian Palazzo, with winding staircase (and elevator), naval antiquities, and very tiny but comfortable rooms. Cosy and warm in winter. (Didn't need air conditioning). Gamla Stan underground station about a 5 minute walk.
Delicious continental breakfast in morning. Fantastic basement sauna is booked for 1 hour at time, and holds up to 10 people. Take your own CD music. I booked through the Stockholm ā la Carte website, which gave me a great discount rate, and included an all inclusive Stockholm Card for my 4 day stay - a saving of over US$100! I'll be back!
Stay in Gamla Stan
Situated in a great location. Staff are wonderfully friendly and helpful. Building is truely unique - a bit like staying in a museum.
However, the room was very small and my bed was very uncomfortable.
Overall I thought the Hotel was a bit over priced.
Fav hotel in Stockholm
I have stayed here twice know and love it. The staff is great, breakfast is very good as well. Make sure you schedule to spend time in the sauna and old well...bring your fav CDs to play. A place you must stay if coming to Stockholm...it is in the middle of everything and a short walk to the tram and bus stops. Great resturants and a 7/11 near-by!
Nicely restored hotel, excellent location
An excellent choice for seeing the major sights of Stockholm. We stayed 5 nights and walked to everything. The hotel is excellently restored, well maintained, staff helpful, and breakfast more than adequate. Sister hotel King Arthur is nearby and seemed similar. Overall, great experience and worth paying somewhat extra for a quaint, well-located/maintained hotel.

... After, most of our toes and fingers were numb so we went inside the closest cafe we could find and ate the nastiest lunch ever served by the nastiest lady. I guess thats what you get for convenience! Moving on we stopped by the outside of the Royal Palace, crossed the bridge into Old Town and went to the Nordic Museum (Nordiska Museet) and the Vasa Museum. I had been to the Royal Palace and Vasa Museum five years ago as a part of the cruise, but the Nordic Museum was ...
... 8217; palace with beautiful gardens in the back. We also toured the theater next door that was built for the Prussian queen that married into the Swedish royal family. She needed some culture in the “backwater” and this was a gift to her. She hired French actors to produce plays. It was neat seeing how shortcuts were made by the architect since they were a little short on cash. The Chinese pavillion was pretty cool also. Chinese objects were all the rage when ...
... and even the construction of the houses on the islands reminded all of us of going to Ahearn and the many wonderful times we have had there. Being on a giant cruise ship and seeing other giant cruise ships making their way through was the only (and significant) difference to the experience. The Swedish archipelago contains more than 30,000 islands, and is a gateway to one of the most beautiful cities we've seen so far on our trip. The city is comprised ...
... we decided that one night would be enough. To add insult to injury, when we went for showers at 18:00 to freshen up, they were cold! Mind you, in terms of refreshing, given that the weather was beautifully warm, they worked.
Prior to showering we went to see a little of the community of Sandhamn. There are 120 year-round residents on Sandön, presumably most of them in Sandhamn and this number swells to 2,500 in summer. On top of that there are the day visitors and ...
Stockholm is made up of many different islands (about 14 or more)...I learnt this fact right before flying in, so as you can tell I wasn't very prepared. Linda and I booked an AirBnB in an older building in a hip area. It was so nice, it was tiny with a loft bed above the kitchen. There was no bathroom sink, kind of odd but the location was amazing. We were right in the middle of everything. Our first night we had an incredible meal, and wandered around ...
