Overview

About Langholmen Hotel

Stockholm, crown prison, converted to a hotel with conference facilities.

Converted prison near city centre - Langholmen Hotel was once the old Crown Prison, which was built in the early 19th century. In 1975, the last prisoner was discharged and in May 1989 the hotel opened after two years renovation work.

The old prison entrance hall has been converted into a reception, with a cafeteria open 24 hours a day. In the middle of the building is the attractive gallery dating from 1866. This has given us the hotel's beautiful, open atrium. Times change, and staying in a cell is now a captivating experience. You're promised your own key, and breakfast consists of more than bread and water !!

The prison is sited on an island a few minutes away from the centre of Stockholm by underground train. The island and surrounding area are a pretty tree lined location, with some open parkland nearby.
 
"The hotel team hope that you will discover that Langholmen is not just captivating, but an island of unspoilt natural beauty."

No mention of the beach which is just next to the prison. Yes, it's perfectly safe to swim in downtown Stockholm. But you might want to wait until July and August for the right water temperature! Fishing is also a popular pastime in and around the city.

This hotel is an experience to stay at. The hotel has all modern facilities but the environment is authentic to the old prison. Swedens most famous spy, Stig Wennerstrom was sitting in this prison. Also the surounding area is very nice. A walk along the water a nice summer evening is a memory in it self. You can stay as 'Youth hostel' person which is cheaper then the hotel but same experience. This is one of the must if you travel to Stockholm.
