Barbara Hutton

An eventful history..

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.

Since 1982, Mälardrottningen has been at her current location and only leaves the dock for maintenance every fifth year.

Once you´ve been here…

One of the nicest views in stockholm, that´s a nice birthday gift, poor little rich girl....

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 18 th 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.

Oyster Hotel Review

Unique hotel offering experience of staying on a converted yacht.

This is an unusual hotel offering the unique experience of staying overnight on a yacht anchored next to Stockholm's old city. The yacht was built in 1924 and first owned by American socialite and heiress to the Woolworth's fortune, Barbara Hutton. During World War II, the vessel was donated to the British Navy. There are a few historical photos in the reception area, and three portholes just behind the reception counter. Floors are carpeted in navy blue, and a few leather armchairs provide seating to arriving guests. It's difficult to forget this is a boat: guests arrive via a gangplank, the ceilings are low, and there are many port holes. Also, stairways are narrow and steep, and there's no elevator, which can present a challenge for people with mobility issues. The Malardrottningen is mostly popular with leisure travelers, although its central location makes it a viable choice for business travelers as well. 

Moored next to Riddarholmen Island, by the city's old town

The yacht is permanently docked next to Riddarholmen Island, just next to the city's old town. A number of tourist sights as well as cafes, restaurants, bars, and museums are within walking distance. Transportation links from here are excellent, with the closest subway station at Gamla Stan, a five-minute walk away.

  • Two-minute walk to Riddarholmen Church (Riddarholmskyrkan)
  • Five-minute walk to the House of Nobility (Riddarhuset)
  • Five-minute walk to Gamla Stan subway station
  • Seven-minute walk to the Swedish Parliament (Sveriges riksdag)
  • Seven-minute walk to the Great Cathedral of Stockholm (Storkyrkan)
  • Seven-minute walk to Stockholm Palace
  • 11-minute walk to Stockholm City Hall
  • 13-minute walk to Stockholm Central Station
  • 23 minutes to Skansen open-air museum by public transit
  • 26 minutes to the Vasa Museum by public transit
  • 31 minutes to Stockholm Airport by train
  • 37 minutes to Djurgarden by public transit 

Tiny but spotless rooms with classy decor and flat-screen TVs

Not surprisingly, the guest rooms at Malardrottningen are tiny and have low ceilings. Each Single Room contains a single bed, while all the other rooms are fitted with bunk beds, as well as desks and small wardrobes. Exterior-facing rooms have portholes, while the others don't and can feel claustrophobic. With navy blue carpeting and warm mahogany furniture, the rooms have an elegant look, with tasteful framed black-and-white prints decorating the walls. The chic black-and-white tiled bathrooms are compact, each squeezing in a toilet, a rectangular vessel sink, and a shower with only a shower curtain and no basin, typical of a wet-room-style bathroom. The rooms are air-conditioned (and heated in winter), and equipped with flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi plus a ceiling fan, and hairdryer. The rooms are spotless, but past guests have complained of musty smells, windows that don't open, and loud air-conditioning.

Free breakfast, on-board restaurant and bar, sauna, and Wi-Fi

For a mid-range hotel squeezed into a yacht, Malardrottningen Hotel and Restaurant offers a fair amount of notable extra features. The buffet breakfast is included in the room rate, and has bread and cereal on offer, as well as a few hot dishes such as eggs and bacon. Located on the foredeck, the restaurant is glassed-in and also has an outdoor terrace with scenic views of the city hall. The unusual bar occupies the space that was used as the boat's navigation room. Use of the sauna is free for guests, and can be booked in advance. Other services on offer include dry-cleaning and laundry service, a safe, and a small television lounge in the lobby. Wi-Fi is free throughout the hotel.

Boat Hotels in Stockholm

Posted By Lola A. Åkerström on May 15, 2018

Lola A. Åkerström introduces you to boat hotels in Stockholm.

Boats in Stockholm. Photography by Lola Akinmade Akerstrom

Photo by author

Popular across Europe are boat hotels – or “ botels ” – refurbished remnants of the continent’s nautical past now used as modern-day lodgings. Here are some docked boat hotels in Stockholm.

Red Boat Mälaren

Boats in Stockholm. Photography by Lola Akinmade Akerstrom

Red Boat Mälaren was hard to miss as I walked from Stockholm’s historic Gamla stan (old town) across Centralbron (Central Bridge) to Stockholm’s edgier neighborhood – Södermalm. She sat like a red cherry atop glazed white icing that was frozen Lake Mälaren on that chilly winter day.

Painted in Falu red and docked alongside Söder Mälarstrand, the ambient fishing boat turned hostel emitted much needed warmth – from aging wood-paneled walls refurbished and decorated with nautical lamps and clocks to hanging lanterns and worn-out lifesavers making patrons feel like they’d literally stepped back in time.

Red Boat Mälaren guests can choose from hostel bunk rooms as well as three different quarters: Admirals, Captains, or Officers quarters, which look onto Gamla stan across Lake Mälaren. There are also two landside quarters – Mates and Navigators’ quarters – that face Södermalm.

LogInn Hotel & M/S Kronprinsesse Märtha

Photo: Loginn

Photo: Loginn

Built in 1928, M/S Kronprinsesse Märtha is a an elegant boat hotel, restaurant and conference ship located along Södermälarstrand.

Starting out as a steamship built for transporting passengers and postal traffic between Oslo and Bergen in Norway, it was originally named after the Swedish Crown Princess Martha who had married Norwegian Prince Olav.

In 1939, “Martha” ran aground during bad weather conditions at sea.

Almost everyone was rescued except two passengers who drowned in their cabins. Since then, “Martha’s” history has been filled with more memorable events from being hit by a tornado, running aground two more times, being used as a blockade ship during the second world war and as a floating casino in the Netherlands.

af Chapman & Skeppsholmen

Photo: af Chapman

Photo: af Chapman

Built in 1888 as a trading ship, visually impressive af Chapman with its tall flagged masts was re-purposed into a hostel centrally located on the island of Skeppsholmen. The ship is within walking distance of many city sights and most of its cabins retain their original style.

A true intrepid, af Chapman has sailed all over the world. Built in 1888 in England, it was a trade ship for her first 25 years before being moved to Gothenburg in 1915, where it became used as a private training ship. In 1923, the Swedish Navy took ownership, giving the ship the name “af Chapman” and it was kept as a training ship until 1934 when it sailed for the last time.

In 1937, the ship was towed to Stockholm and permanently docked at Skeppsholmen as naval accommodations. After WWII, the Swedish Navy sold her to the city of Stockholm for only 5,000 SEK – which today can be likened to  the cost of a roundtrip plane ticket. The Swedish Touring Club took over af Chapman with plans to turn it into youth hostel. The club paid for her reconstruction and renovation.

af Chapman was officially opened as a hostel in 1949.

M/S Rygerfjord

Photo: Rygerfjord

Rygerfjord was built in 1950 at Mjellem & Karl’s shipyard in Bergen, Norway and she ran the shipping routes between Bergen-Rosendal and Bergen-Sunndal in Norway. Constant engine problems forced the ship to spend more time in the shipyard undergoing repairs.

Over the years, it transported both passengers and export goods, but in July 1989, the boat was stranded en route from Bergen to Nordkap. Her captain died of a heart attack. All its passengers were rescued safely.

Two years later, the ship was taken out of service and used as a missionary ship until June 1995 when it was permanently docked at Söder Mälarstrand. After its renovation, the boat now offers up 130 beds in 45 cabins.

Its sister ship, Rygerfjord II arrived in 2001. It was built in 1986 in Poland as a hotel ship and together, both ships offer up 55 cabins that cam accommodate 150 guests.

Mälardrottningen Yacht Hotel

Docked at Riddarholmen in Stockholm’s harbor with gorgeous views of Gamla stan (Old town), Mälardrottningen Yacht Hotel offers up a taste of the city’s maritime flair. Built in 1924 and converted into a floating boat hotel (“botel”), travelers can cozy up in one of 61 cabins spanning its three-level deck – from modest-sized sailor cabins to a sprawling owner’s cabin, complete with dark mahogany polished wooden accents and nautical artwork adorning its walls.

Built in 1924 by American millionaire C.K.G Billings, Mälardrottningen was the largest diesel driven yacht at that time. It was later given to Barbara Hutton – heiress of the Woolworth Empire – as a gift from her father for her 18th birthday. She in turn gifted the ship to the Royal English Navy. During WWII, the ship was temporarily anchored in Panama before being moved to Norway to be used as a training ship.

Reconstruction began on the ship in 1980 to convert it into a hotel and it was completed two years later in 1982.

Mälardrottningen was then permanently anchored by Riddarfjärden in Gamla Stan.

Gustaf af Klint Hotel & Hostel

Located at Slussen is the former ocean-mapping ship Gustaf af Klint docked at Stadsgårdskajen. The ship was named after Gustaf af Klint, a Swedish naval officer and cartographer, who was born in 1771 in Karlskrona and who died in 1840. The ship is now converted into a hotel and hostel which is open all year round with a restaurant onboard and deck for relaxing. The ship was initally suppsed to be docked along Norrmälarstrand, but it has since moved back to its old location at Stadsgårdskajen at Slussen.

In its youth hostel section, there are four-bed and two-bed cabins and a dormitory with 24 beds, and the hotel/youth hostel is located close to the underground – about 250 meters from Slussen station.

Ånedin Hostel

Located onboard a traditional cruiseliner is Ånedin Hostel and the ship, M/S Birger Jarl, was named after a Swedish statesman who played a pivotal role in consolidation of Sweden. Built in 1953 in Sweden, the ship was a cruiseliner that regularly shuttled passengers between  Stockholm, Sweden and Mariehamn on Åland Islands, Finland for over 60 years.

In May 2010, M/S Birger Jarl was officially declared an historically important landmark (“K-marked”) by the Swedish State Maritime Museum. In June 2013, it stopped working as a cruiseliner and was turned into a floating hostel. Ånedin Hostel has 156 rooms  with traditional maritime designs across six decks.

Ånedin Hostel is now situated between Fotografiska and Birka Cruises along Lake Mälaren.

hotel yacht stockholm

Here are more details about the ship from its official site:

Birger Jarl is a passenger ship owned by Ånedinlinjen. M/S Birger Jarl is 92,40 meters long 14,25 meters wide, the draft is 4,90 meters and the weight is 2798 tons. In 2010 M/S Birger Jarl was included in Sweden’s registry for historically and culturally important ships by Swedish National Maritime Museum. M/S Birger Jarl was laid down in 1951 at Finnboda shipyard in Nacka, Stockholm. It was built for the shipping company Rederi AB Svea and was given the name S/S Birger Jarl after a Swedish statesman who played a pivotal role in consolidation of Sweden.
M/S Birger Jarl is one of so called Olympia ships as she together with her sister ships (S/S Aallotar and S/S Bore III) were built for the Helsinki 1952 Summer Olympics. However, she entered into service a year after the Olympic games and her maiden voyage was in June of 1953 from Stockholm to Helsinki, Finland. Since 1979 the classic liner Birger Jarl owned by Ånedinlinjen operated on a cruise service between Stockholm, Sweden and Mariehamn on Åland Islands, Finland. Built in 1953, the ship managed to preserve the original wooden interiors and has been awarded the Swedish ‘K mark’, listing it as culturally important in 2010. Any kind of reconstruction that spoils the historical interior is not allowed.

It was a wonderful stay on the ship! I was as excited as a child. The atmosphere was really good because it's a real ship! Also, the location is great, in a central area, and it was easy to go everywhere. And the people who work there were very warm, friendly, and helpful. I could spend relaxing time like at home. I'm lucky to have found the best place in Stockholm. Hope I can come back!
