The Stockholm Foundation for the Seafarers´ Hotel is an economically independent non-profit making association for the purpose of running hotel business for seamen, also offering different kinds of leisure activities. The overriding purpose for the foundation is thereby to improve the social conditions for seamen at port. The board of the foundation has decided to pass a resolution on suitable and necessary measures to reach this goal.
The activities of the foundation are located in the Prinsen 17 premises (The Seamen’s Hotel). Here you will find rooms with discounts for seamen as well as the Katarina Seamen’s Club and its many activities.
The aim of the Foundation is to develop its service to seamen, following the needs of an ever changing Shipping trade. This path is partly followed by continuous contacts with seafarers at the Club, partly by making study visits and by engaging in seminars and meetings with other parties within the shipping trade. A lot of information is also gathered through close contacts and co-operation with a number of organisations working within the Shipping trade.
