Bed and breakfast in Stockholm
Sweden in general and Stockholm in particular are definitely not among the cheapest places in our world – go and ask the tourists. That is why when speaking about where to stay in Stockholm we mention several types of Stockholm accomodation – cheaper hostels, rather costly hotels and expensive luxurious hotels and apartments.
Hotels of worldwide known companies are too costly as places to stay in Stockholm for thrifty visitors and students. The main goal for that kind of tourists is to explore the Swedish capital and to explore as many things as possible, they are not confined to a exact Stockholm b&b place. Basically foreign students and people who don’t wish to pay much money look for hostels. There are lots of great hostels in Stockholm, but we recommend you to also check available hotel rooms.
Take a good stroll around Stockholm and you will soon find a vast number of tiny and cozy hotels with attractive cost. The probability to run against a seasonal discount and book a great room for low price is high. Finally, it’s definitely better to find a room in a local original hotel than to choose an ordinary hostel often full of noise and impolite meanies.
Check out a ship hotel
Could you imagine that cheap accommodation in Stockholm can be found not on the land but in the water? That is why people call Stockholm “Northern Venetia”. Getting a room in a ship gives you a big opportunity to live in the very center. Finally, the best advantage is that those ships appear to be much cheaper than ordinary hotels. What a nice accommodation in Stockholm, isn’t it?.
Experienced tourists also claim that choosing a ship is actually much better than in any “land hotel”. According to the tourists’ words, the ships are indeed staying near the city center. So you will get both available price and small distance to dozens of fabulous attractions.
Turn into a local citizen
Another great option is to rent an apartment or a house. It is relatively expensive choice, but you should consider that average wage and pension in Sweden is among the highest in the whole world. Actually that is the reason of why houses for rent are not that popular.
A sensible solution will be to find a small house far from the center of the city. It will let you save decent sum and see how local people in ordinary districts live. It will be a memorable experience for you. Furthermore it is the best chance to compare Stockholm center with other areas.
Renting an apartment or a house can become the most attractive option for the people who have already been to Swedish capital and seen its attractions. There are lots of awesome things about non-touristic areas too. Living side by side with Swedish local people will let you see the full picture.
When comfort is important
Finally, there is another segment of tourists. They are the people who prefer absolute comfort in everything. You can enjoy all these advantages only in a four or five star hotel. Stockholm can offer a great deal of global hotel chains. Local hotel chains can be attractive as well. Moreover, you will see in the streets some single hotels which are much more stylish and Swedish.
Grand Hotel is possibly the best spot where a tourist could put up at since this amazing hotel is situated right in the very center of the city. Historical sites, museums, restaurants – everything is literally within a short walking distance from Grand Hotel. The only minus is that the room prices are higher than in other Western cities.
