Bed and breakfast in Stockholm
All tourists who have stayed in Sweden perfectly know that it’s certainly not the most affordable touristic place in the world. Thus when we are talking about where to stay in Stockholm we should say that there are several types of Stockholm accomodation – affordable hostels, rather costly hotels and luxurious hotels, houses and apartments.
Not every tourist needs and can afford places to stay in Stockholm like a hotel – for instance Radisson or Sheraton. Such people are usually not interested in luxe – they feel absolutely well about any more affordable Stockholm b&b. All savers and students usually try to find a cheaper accommodation in Stockholm. There are lots of great hostels in Stockholm, however we suggest that you check available hotels.
Dozens of authentic Swedish stylish and neat hotels can be easily found in whole center the capital. The most pleasant thing related to such places is that once in a while they present incredibly interesting price offers like offers for a season and discounts. Finally, it’s definitely better to get a room in a local authentic Swedish hotel than to choose a typical hostel often full of noise and impolite guests.
Check out a ship hotel
Could you imagine that cheap accommodation in Stockholm can be found not on the land only but in the water? It is the reason for people calling it “Northern Venetia”. It’s very convenient to put up at a ship since basically all ships are in very interesting parts of the city. There are both cheaper hotels and hostels in such ships from 20 Euros for a bed in dorms. One will hardly find more unusual accomodation in Stockholm.
The confirmation of it can be easily found on any touristic forum thread dedicated to Stockholm – just people. You will find out that people like ship hotels due to all of the benefits described above. So you will get both available price and small distance to dozens of fabulous attractions.
Feel the life of a Stockholm inhabitant
If you want more freedom and comfort you can check rental apartments or houses. Due to quite high pension in Sweden Swedish people can easily afford paying costly rent, thus you need to be ready for unexpectedly high prices. Actually that is the main reason of why houses for rent are not much popular.
But much more affordable houses and apartments can be found in the outskirts. You will thus save money and see how Stockholm people live. With no doubts, such experience is very useful. You will be able to compare ordinary districts to the famous central part of Stockholm too.
Rental apartments and houses perfectly suit visitors who are not obsessed with finding each and every point of interest. There are lots of cool things in non-touristic areas too. That’s how one can get the full view of the Swedish capital.
When comfort is important
Finally, there is another segment of travelers. They are the people preferring absolute comfort in everything. You can enjoy all of this only in a 4 or 5 star hotel. There are prestigious hotels of literally all world companies like Sheraton and Radisson. Additionally you could check out some local hotels. Furthermore, you will see in the streets some single hotels that are much more stylish and Swedish.
As for staying in the very city center we would recommend you Grand Hotel – its situation is undoubtedly the best. Historical sites, restaurants, museums – everything is located within a walking distance from Grand Hotel. But don’t forget about really high prices – they can be higher than in most of other Western capitals.
Find new friends and a new couch
Surely, only traditional resorts like hotels and some hostels can offer bed and breakfast in Stockholm. However, there is a different way to get to a place for open-minded people – a service called Couchsurfing. There you will see hundreds of people from different countries and towns including Stockholm who invite everyone to come and stay. It’s very simple – register on Couchsurfing, find a person from the Swedish capital and send a message to him or her. That’s how you will not only learn more about this marvelous city but also meet dozens of new people.
