Positive Reviews

A totally unique experience

Interesting and quirky, the prison cell bedrooms at the Långholmen Hotell are like nothing you've stayed in before. Guests say that they find the theme fascinating and feel it is very well executed through the interior design. You'll be able to learn about the building's history and enjoy the unusual touches which will certainly keep you entertained throughout your stay.

Breakfast is great

With an impressive selection of meats, cheeses, eggs and bread at the breakfast buffet, you'll find that you can enjoy a hearty meal to keep you going as you explore the Långholmen island and the rest of Stockholm. Guests were satisfied with the quality of the food and the fact that they have lots to choose from.

A beautiful location

Getting away from the crowds, your stay here will put you within just steps of parkland and a beach. Surrounded by walking trails, you'll be able to enjoy a quieter side of the city, take part in gentle exercise and switch off on your holiday in beautiful Scandinavia.

Negative Reviews

Space is limited

As you might imagine, the rooms are small because they are converted prison cells and some guests mention that they fund them a little too small for their liking.

A little far from central Stockholm

Although the Långholmen Hotell is just a 14-minute stroll to the nearest public transport station, some guests were a little frustrated at its distance from the central city area.

Breakfast room gets crowded

Unfortunately, the breakfast room is relatively small and can get a little crowded during busy periods.
