Now you are probably wondering if you will have to sleep in a prison cell or eat bread and water. We promise to provide all our guests with their very own cell keys and not to force anyone to eat bread and water. Långholmen Hotel and Conference Center is housed in the former Kronohäktet which was built in the early 19th century. The last prisoner was released from Långholmen Prison in 1972 and fourteen years later we opened the hotel. The cells have been transformed into pleasant and light hotel rooms, equipped with modern furnishings, telephone, radio, cable television, shower and WC. The hotel’s 89 single rooms and 13 double rooms, all of which were newly renovated in 1997, are constructed from 200 prison cells. Ten of the rooms can accommodate handicapped guests and 91 rooms are available for non-smokers. The former prison induction area has been replaced by the hotel’s reception area and a snack bar which is open around the clock. Book a cell at Långholmen Hotel. and we will do our best to make your stay a captivating experience.

Conference rooms

The Långholmen Conference Center is built in what used to be part of the prison and the prison hospital. A century ago, a cholera epidemic spread throughout Stockholm with often fatal results. As an island, Långholmen was somewhat protected, but the epidemic eventually spread to the prison population and it became necessary to organize hospital facilities. Two of our four large conference rooms are located in what once was the hospital. Rudenschöldssalen, the Rudenschöld Room, is named after a Swedish noblewoman who was imprisoned for political reasons in the 18th century. Anckarsvärdssalen, the Anckarsvärd Room, is named after one of the architects who designed the prison at Långholmen. Hearings at the old prison were conducted in Tingssalen, The Court Room. The fourth conference room, Bryggarsalen, The Brewery Room, commemorates the 17th century brewer who resided in this building. Each of the above four halls is suitable for audiences of 32 to 80, depending on the seating arrangements. Our facilities also include ten smaller conference rooms that can each accommodate 15 people The Inspector, The Jailer, The Pastor, The Parish Clerk, The Guard, The Workhouse Master, The Cage, The Professor, The Executioner, and The Warden. We will be happy to provide you with whatever you need to arrange your organization’s conference.

Banquet rooms

The Alstavik assembly or banqueting hall is located in the oldest building in the complex, dating from 1670. The house was originally the private home of Jochum Ahlstedt, the brewer and alderman, who lived there with his large family until his death in 1681. From 1724, the house was used as a spinning-house or women’s prison. With the closure of the Spinning-House in 1827, the present-day assembly or banqueting hall became a director’s home. Now the light has returned, and the airy atmosphere provides inspiration for get-togethers and other activities. The hall is as suitable for company parties as for weddings. With the food, beverages and ambience, and the help of our knowledgeable staff, we venture to promise that we can fulfil your dreams of an enjoyable occasion. Welcome to a new era in Långholmen’s thrilling history!
