I absolutely loved this property. The boat was quite solid, little to no rocking even when it was extremely windy out. The room was super cozy, and everything worked great (especially great water pressure, and radiator in the bathroom was fantastic for the cold weather on the lake). The staff was wonderful, and the location is fantastic for getting around Stockholm with ease. I would caution anyone with knee issues to be aware that the steps leading to the upper deck are quite steep, but that's the only negative I can say. Jag alskar Röd Båten!
