The premises of Hotel Skeppsholmen have a long and colourful history. It was originally built in 1699-1702 with the purpose of housing the Royal Marines of Karl XII. Since Sweden’s financial situation of the time was poor, most of the building material came from ruined castles on the countryside.
The buildings, known to locals as “The Long Row”, was never used for the soldiers as intended, as most of them never made it home from the wars. They were therefore left inhabited until 1710, when the city started using them as a hospice for poor people infected with the plague.
Several years later and after some renovation work, the buildings became offices and storehouses for the Navy, but also housing for military employees. The Martial Court was accommodated here too.
In the 1900’s most of the space was turned into apartments for Navy staff, mostly officers and their families, and in the 2000’s it was once again adapted to be used as administrative offices.
In 1935 the buildings became government listed historic buildings and even if the architect Nicodemus Tessin Jr is most famous for the design of the Royal Castle this is one out of just two commercial edifices still remaining today.
Many interesting personalities have passed by ”The Long Row” throughout the years. To honor some of the men and women who have been staying here, we have dedicated each hotel room to a prominent person from our past.
