Welcome to Hotel Gamla Stan

Elegant, historical and comfortable accommodation in the Old Town of Stockholm

A Charming Hotel Where Old Meets New
Hotel Gamla Stan is a charming hotel with 81 rooms housed in three properties between Skottgränd and Stora Hopare Gränd. The oldest part of the hotel dating back to the 17th century. Our rooms display a range of different shapes and sizes, the three houses have different character and make their mark on the rooms. All rooms are decorated in beautiful, warm colours for a cosy and timeless feeling.

With a Fantastic Location
The hotel is located on Skeppsbron with fantastic views of Saltsjön, Skeppsholmen, Djurgården and Stadsgården. Here, among the Old Town's narrow alleys, historic buildings and cobbled streets, you get a unique and wonderful experience with cafés, restaurants and cosy little shops around the corner. The Royal Palace is only 250 meters from the hotel and is one of Stockholm's most visited attractions.
1670 - The History of the Hobelin House

The building at Skeppsbron 22 in Gamla Stan, Stockholm, is called The Hobelin House, also known as Sundströmska huset. The Hobelin House is named after the merchant Johan Paul Hobelin and was built in 1670, based on the drawings of the famous architect Nicodemus Tessin. In 1767, the then owner merchant Eric Osterman renovated the building according to the fashion of the times.

A hundred years later, a complete renovation by architect Johan Fredrik Åbom took place and changed the appearance of the house. In 1924, the last renovation was made and the Hobelin House received its current appearance. In 1909, Nyman & Schultz moved into the building as the first tenants. Soumibyrån, Stockholm’s and Scandinavia's first foreign tourist office have also housed here; they opened their doors in 1926.

Today, Hotel Gamla Stan is run by Vi Invest AB, a company in the hotel and real estate industry. The hotel has been carefully renovated to preserve the history of the house. Stockholm's old city wall once passed through the hotel building. The old murals and ceiling paintings from that time have been preserved and can be viewed in some of the rooms. Beautiful hand-painted patterns from a bygone era.
