    This is a great inexpensive way to stay right in the heart of Stockholm. We really loved the unique atmosphere that the ship provided. The cabins were larger than we expected, fitted out in original wood. The breakfast was great.

    Lovely quirky place to stay( very close to Gamla Stan) with such a fascinating history. Great location, good value which included a very nice breakfast. The water dispenser with fresh and sparkling water to fill up our bottles was a nice touch....

    Breakfast was excellent, and the staff was very accommodating. I have dietary restrictions and they were very helpful and thorough in explaining what I could and could not have based on my diet.

When you enter the gangway of Mälardrottningen, you might be walking in the same footsteps of former movie stars, politicians and royals. The ship was built in 1924 for Mr C.K.G Billings, a millionaire from New York, and was at that time the world’s largest diesel driven yacht. The ship was later bought by the Woolworth-millionaire Frank W. Hutton. Barbara Hutton, the Woolworth heiress received it as a gift from her father on her 18th birthday. Barbara lived an extravagant life among royals and movie stars and in the 1940’s she was married to Cary Grant. She later sold the ship to the Royal British Navy for one pound sterling. During the Second World War the ship was anchored very shortly in Panama and later on moved to Norway where she was used as a training ship. During the fifties the ship was used as a passenger ferry between Stockholm and Åbo in Finland. Since 1982, Mälardrottningen has been at her current location and only leaves the dock for maintenance every fifth year.
