  • Alumni room

    The alumni rooms may not boast about the same views as our other rooms but has other advantages. They are located in a separat and quiet part of the house, they are large and a bit cheaper. The beds in the single rooms are extra wide (120 cm). So, if you have plans other than to sit by the window all day, we recommend an alumni room.

Stay in a historical setting but with today's amenities

In 1896 the so-called Great Diaconist House was completed. By that time, deaconesses and students stayed, lived and worked in the house. Today we use the house for conference and hotel rooms and fascinates our guests with the feeling of moving back in history while at the same time all modern conveniences are available.

To honor our history and all the stories from our past, we have chosen to give our hotel categories names from the world of deaconry. Read more about what the different titles meant then and what they mean today under "About Us". And ... our business is still managed by a director. It is not unlikely to meet him or a real live deaconess in our facilities.

We are located high up on Erstaklippan, eastern Södermalm. Close to the Photographic Museum (Fotografiska), Folkungagatan and Nytorget.
