Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Skeppsholmen

Gröna gången 1, Stockholm, 111 86, Sweden

Surrounded by trees and lawns, and just steps from the water, Hotel Skeppsholmen is an oasis of nature and tranquillity in the heart of Stockholm. The hotel occupies a long row of 300-year-old buildings once used as naval housing, now converted into bright rooms with wood floors, large windows that open, and contemporary furnishings in neutral colors. In summer, guests can enjoy meals or relaxation on the outdoor terrace. The passenger ferry to Djurgården and Gamla Stan (Slussen) stops a three-minute walk from the hotel.
