Victory Hotel Stockholm Reviews
Fabulous boutique hotel with great service Dec 19, 2013
Hotel Victory is a small and very cozy boutique hotel with 45 rooms. It is located in the historic and wonderful old part of Stockholm called Gamla Stan, a must see area when visiting Stockholm. The hotel building is a historical property and the hotel is a museum piece itself, boasting a private collection of maritime antiques, hand-picked by the owner over many decades. In the basement where the breakfast is served they have displayed some old fundaments of former building dating back to 13th or 14th century.
I had never stayed in this hotel before but due to an arrangement in Gamla Stan I had booked this hotel. I had stayed at some of its sister hotels, which are all located in the same area and I had totally enjoyed them even though a hotel like Hotel Nelson has really small cabin like rooms. Even at Victory there were really small rooms but I had the good fortune to be upgraded to a nice size room. Each room in Hotel Collector’s Victory continues the nautical theme, all the rooms are named after Swedish captains and the rooms are filled with antiques.
My room was maybe 15 square meters with a low but very nice double bed taking up most of the space. The room ad an entry like stepping into a cabin on a ship and the nautical theme continued from the outside in the room. There were two pictures of old sail ships and a 3-dimentional picture with a model of a ship hanging above the bed. The curtains were heavy but in bright yellow and red colors, they were double drapes so the room would not let in any sun. I had a view towards the inner yard with old yellow houses centering a small cozy summer garden but being December there were nothing but colored light and some chairs out there. It was not difficult for me to imagining some
The room had quite a large bathroom for being in this area and I was quite satisfied with the room I was given. The reason that you should take at this hotel should not be the room but the ambiance of the hotel itself. It is like staying at a living museum. Yes there are antiques everywhere but they are meant to be used not just things to look upon. The staff in the hotels reception, breakfast area and their bars, were all really friendly and service minded. The hotel is also flexible about the check out time if you ask them nicely.
There are a lot of activities going on at the hotel because it also houses 3 bars and a restaurant. There is a Burgundy bar with good but very expensive grapes, a normal bar but with great selection of drinks and beers and they actually also have a cigar bar. The places are all popular but getting in to the bars at around 8 pm seems a good possibility as many are leaving for restaurants in the area.
