Named after the famous ship of British naval hero Lord Nelson, Victory Hotel, the largest of the Bengtsson family’s private hotels, is filled to the brim with fascinating, personally and passionately curated antiques. Whilst its nautical theme may inspire romantic visions of ocean travel, the hotel’s central location in Gamla stan will keep you firmly rooted in Stockholm. Set in a 17th-century stone property on one of the Old Town’s cobbled streets, Victory Hotel is just a four-minute walk from the Royal Palace and within easy reach of some of the city’s best sights and museums.
Start your days over a bountiful breakfast at the hotel; a daily smörgåsbord of smoked salmon, salami, smoked ham, meatballs, fruit, smoothies, Swedish pancakes and more. You’ll find complimentary tea and coffee stations on each of the hotel’s floors, so you’re never far from a caffeine fix, and there’s a lovely sauna, hot tub and relaxation area on site, so you can unwind after a day exploring the city. The curiosities continue to the guest rooms, which are each dedicated to a Swedish sea captain – be sure to spot the antique painting of your captain’s ship, which thoughtfully adorns the room’s wall.
How to Get There
Loved this hotel. Location is great in the old town. It is full of quirky nautical memorabilia, the highlight being an original letter from Lord Nelson in reception
Bed was very comfortable and twin bathtubs was a nice feature, especially after a long day walking
Not the cheapest hotel but still good value
It is a small hotel in the Old Town, perfectly located, and we spent 3 lovely days. GREAT value! Right price, great breakfast, good location, hotel elevator, good accommodations, friendly and helpful staff! It is important to note the hotel is accessible by vehicle. There are antiques displayed throughout the hotel, all floors. Each floor has a 24-hour coffee station for guests. A bar and restaurant with extensive wine selections are on the premises, but we didn't utilize either.
This is a very old building but beautifully maintained.
The rooms are quite nice and large for the area.
Caution to those with mobility issues-the shower is a very high sided bathtub which will prove to be impossible to use if you have hip or knee issues.
Another caution is the intermittent internet issues.
We were finally able to get connected but you must reconnect every 6 hours.
No big deal, but an issue to remember
