Hotel Skeppsholmen dates back to 1699 when it was built in order to house the Royal Marines. The building exchanged hands many times, each time being developed for various different uses such as a hospice, a storage facility for the Navy, residential apartments for the Navy and their families and lastly Navy offices.
During its extensive renovation by Swedish architects Claesson Koivisto Rune many of the original constructions and details were uncovered and restored adding a unique historical feel to the elegant and modern design of the hotel. The clean, neutral color scheme and modern Swedish décor is beautifully complimented by the original 17th century wooden floors and staircases.
The 81 rooms and suites have been decorated in a classically Swedish manner. They are spacious and minimalist with light colors, wooden floors and all have beautiful sea or garden views. The relaxed restaurant has a very inviting atmosphere with warm lighting, comfortable seating and delicious locally produced traditional Swedish fare with a modern twist.
Hotel Skeppsholmen is neighbored by the Museum of Modern Art, the Swedish Museum of Architecture, and the remarkable Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities and if you walk just a little further afield across the bridge you'll find yourselves on Kungsträdgården Stockholm's absolute city center.
Hotel Skeppsholmen has 81 rooms and suites of varying categories. The rooms are contemporary but retain elements of the historic building they are located in. Comfort and tranquillity were at the forefront of the designers mind, and this is reflected in the soothing color palates and luxurious bedding and amenities.

The hotel has a small gym which is open 24/7 and the hotel can point you in the right direction of some fabulous tennis courts, swimming pools and spas.

When to go
Stockholm is a year round destination but is at its best in spring, summer and December. From May to September temperatures are warm, early twenties but in the height of summer can reach up to 30 degrees and the sun doesn't set until around 10:30pm, rising at around 3:00am so you can really pack a lot in! During the winter temperatures do get cold but it is a great place to go for a pre-Christmas getaway.
