Nominated one of the most charming hotels in Scandinavia!
We arrived early and Olivia graciously welcomed us in. It was like arriving in the 17th century. She took our bags and secured our belongings while we toured the city. Later, when we returned she led us up the original, winding staircase to our room (this is not a hotel appropriate for people with disabilities). Crisp, fluffy beds, beautiful hardwood floors, Scandinavian decor and all the amenities one would need. We felt at home immediately. In the morning, we enjoyed the lovely breakfast in the intimate dining area. Sven Vintappare was our most charming and memorable stay in all of Scandinavia.
We stayed at this wonderful hotel for one night and had a lovely experience. An old house with a real feel of early 15th century, interiors suited the age but were functional and not ancient. Very cosy and helpful and cheerful personnel. Everything worked well! Would definitely stay again.
What a lovely place this is. We arrived rather late. There isn’t a reception, but you phone the number on the window to get the code. Just after you enter on the left is the little café. Croissants, cookies and fruit are ready for the quests. On our room a small bottle of prosecco and more goodies. It is not for people who can not walk the stairs, there is no elevator. The building is from 1607 so do not expect a straight floor, wall or ceiling. All rooms are different. Our room felt more like a little apartment, a home in the heart of the old town. Ferries, busses and plenty of good restaurants nearby. Each morning a nice breakfast in the little café, quite relaxed with classical music. The staff is very, very nice and attentive. We arrived by Airportbus. With our lightweight backpacks the walk of 15 to 20 min. was not a problem. I’ll advice all my family and friends to stay here when in Stockholm. I hope to come back one day.
