at the Lydmar Hotel
Jul 20th, 2019
Spent two nights at the Lydmar and couldn’t have been happier. Great location. Spacious room...with a tub. Loads of art and books throughout the hotel. The NY Times AND the FT. And a terrific staff; guys at the front desk - Carl and Yanis - saw to all our needs. The bartender on the 2nd floor patio, Morgan, makes a fine cocktail and is a pleasure to chat with. Look forward to returning TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

We had a great time at the bar. Wonderful atmosphere and the service was excellent. Made us feel at home. Beautiful set up. Great ambience music and the most spectacular view of the Royal Palace. A special thanks to Javier our Cuban brother from another mother. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
What a disaster!
Jul 12th, 2019
I was looking forward to my stay at the Lydmar after seeing the photos of the property and reading the reviews, however after checking in today it has been a big disappointment so far. I booked a Large Street Room (room 112) which was nice enough at first glance in a funky kind of way, but lacks a major basic feature...privacy curtains! Like the room type suggests it is on the street side, almost at ground level and you would think that a basic amenity like sheer privacy curtains would be standard, especially for a room in such an exposed area of the hotel, but for some mind boggling reason the hotel has only provided blackout curtains. The resulting effect is that if you want any privacy at all you need to use the blackout curtains thus blocking out ALL natural light from the room making it feel like an absolute dungeon. I certainly didn’t expect a stunning view with a “street view” room, but I don’t think it’s unreasonable to have a minimal expectation of having some natural light in the room without having to worry about every pervert in the city peeping into the room from outside. I tried to get the room changed with the front desk, but unfortunately the hotel is full so I’ve resigned myself to spending as much time outside of this dungeon as possible. Update - I won’t even get started about the huge bug that’s been buzzing around the room for the last hour which adds insult to injury. Update part 2 - Speaking of injury, whoever designed this room wasn’t too bright. There’s a little raised door jamb on the floor leading into the bathroom which I’ve stubbed my toe against twice. Why would they have that there? Wait...another injury to report...I just smacked into the wall mounted TV to the right of the bed which allows just inches to get in and out of bed. Not a very smart placement when getting up in the dark of the night to use the bathroom! And yes, I just stubbed my toe on the damn door jamb for the third time. Now that I’m up nursing my stubbed toe and bruised elbow I’m pondering why there is a large chair in the living room area placed directly in front of the living room TV? Who designed this room!?!?!? This place may just be too “cool” for me. Maybe I’ll try moving to next door to The Grand Hotel tomorrow because this place has been a disaster for me so far. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
Lovely Boutique Hotel in an Optimal Location
Jul 9th, 2019
Right next to the Grand Hotel (and along the same price line), but much smaller, hence without the big hotel feel, Lydmar Hotel is for people that enjoy luxury boutique hotels. The location is perfect, right along the river and across the river from The Royal Palace and Gamla Stan. Just down the street is the tourist bureau (along the river on the right from the hotel). (You can pick up your Stockholm card here and buy your ticket for the trip along the canals, with the boats departing a few feet away.) I had a King room, which was on the small side, but stylishly appointed and with feather pillows (which is a big plus for me.) Most conveniently, the room was on the second floor and right next to a lovely outdoor restaurant, where I ate almost daily, as the atmosphere and convenience were too good to pass up (although it can get too loud at popular dinner times, and the music choices add to the noise level.) Breakfast was very good and included. I had a late departure for my next destination, and the hotel quite conveniently stored my bags while I spent a few more hours touring the city before leaving. The staff is very pleasant and accommodating. Overall, I would more accurately give it 4.5 stars but still recommend. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

This hotel is within walking distance to many places of interest including the Palace. Just next to the Grand Hotel. Very cosy and comfortable. We had big rooms which had breakfast included. The spread was very good and service was good too! The hotel has a quaint old lift which the kids enjoyed very much. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
