The building dates back to the 1600s and the cellar hides the remnants of the original Stockholm city wall. The front of the house (Österlånggatan) once served as a part of the old docks where ships sailed in to unload their cargo and trade. Needless to say, the harbour quarters attracted all sorts of criminals and loiterers. Rumour has it that several treasures, that needed to be hidden from government official’s eyes, were buried in the cellars of our house. One rumour in particular mentions a large silver treasure that has still not been found. It is even included in the current owner’s sales agreement – if the treasure is found during his ownership it has to be divided with past owners…
The building is located in between Baggensgatan 17 and Österlånggatan 18 with one entrance on each side. Originally it was two buildings that were eventually united and made into one in the 1700s, keeping the old wooden framework. In the mid 18th century it was owned by Anders Sälgström who used the part towards Österlånggatan as a tobacco factory and storage with stables at the bottom and the part towards Baggensgatan as his private residence where he and his wife lived with their 11 children.

We would love to be able to welcome any guest to our beautiful 17th century building. Unfortunately, though, the old construction allows very limited accessibility and our apartments are not suitable for wheelchairs due to thresholds, ledges and narrow door frames.
The fact that there is no elevator in the building might of course be a bit of an inconvenience for some of our guests. Please note that if you have made a booking for one of our apartments located on first or second floor, you will have to carry your luggage up one or two flights of stairs. We really hope, and believe, that you will find it worth the effort. If this is a problem for you, we strongly urge you to choose one of the apartments accessible from ground floor.
THRESHOLDS AND LEDGES
If you have mobility problems, please note that, as mentioned above, all apartments contain thresholds and ledges.
ACCESS BY CAR
Since our building is located in the heart of beautiful Old Town, access by car is limited as well. Traffic is prohibited all day, other than between 06.00 and 11.00 AM. This means that you might have to walk with your luggage on cobble stone streets the last 200 meters up to the residence. Again, we really do think that you will find it worth the effort, and the fact that the Old Town is not frequented by cars must for the most part be considered a good thing, and part of what makes our neighbourhood such a nice and quiet place to be.
There is no parking associated to Residence Perseus.
The nearest public parking lots are located at the outskirts of Old Town.
