Where to stay in Stockholm
Sweden in general and Stockholm in particular are certainly not the cheapest places in the world – ask the experienced tourists. In short we would like to say that city guests looking for where to stay in Stockholm or Stockholm accomodation could choose among these variants – affordable (ships, hostels, some hotels), moderately expensive (hotels) and really expensive (luxurious hotels).
Not everyone needs and can find enough funds for places to stay in Stockholm like a hotel – for example Park Inn or Sheraton. The main aim for such kind of people is to enjoy the city and to explore as much as they can, they are not confined to any certain Stockholm b&b place. Overall foreign students and just people who do not wish to spend too much prefer hostels. There are a lot of really good hostels in Stockholm, however we suggest that you check available hotel rooms.
Tens of authentic Swedish stylish and neat hotels can be easily found all around the city. The coolest thing related to places like this is that sometimes they have incredibly bargain price offers like seasonal offers and other discounts. If hostels tend to look similar to each other in entire Europe and even the world the hotels are always different and thus more beautiful.
Live in a ship!
Those who are good at geography also know that Swedish capitan is an island city and cheap accomodation in Stockholm can be found on ships. That is why people call Stockholm “Northern Venetia”. Booking a room in a ship gives you a big opportunity to live in the very center. There are both affordable hotels and hostels in such ships beginning with 20 Euros for a room. What a nice accommodation in Stockholm, isn’t it?.
Read Internet forums and see that people confirm it – a lot of them prefer ships too. According to the tourists’ words, Stockholm ships are basically located near the city center. It means that you will not be living in a cool place but also have all main attraction sites right near.
Be a Swedish
If you want more freedom and comfort you can check rental apartments or houses. Due to quite high pension in Sweden local people can afford paying costly rent, which means you are better to be ready for the prices. It means that Swedish people are not afraid of such prices, but tourists are usually disappointed.
A sensible solution is to find a small house located far from the city center. It will let you save decent sum and see how locals in ordinary districts live. That’s an awesome experience too. It will let you compare ordinary districts to the touristic part of Stockholm too.
Rental apartments suit well those who are not keen on seeing each and every attraction. Non-touristic areas are also incredibly interesting. That is how you can get the full view of Stockholm.
Top level of comfort
Anyway, some people need really much comfort. You can get all these benefits only in a four or five star hotel. Stockholm can offer a vast number of global hotel chains. Additionally you could check out local hotel chains. Small Stockholm inns and hotels could also be luxurious enough to come up to all your requirements.
Grand Hotel is possibly the greatest place where a wealthy tourist could stay since this amazing hotel is located right in the very heart of the Swedish capital. Historical sites, museums, restaurants – everything is located within a short walking distance from Grand Hotel. Unfortunately, the room prices can be astonishing for those, who are used to the room prices like in other Western countries.
Surfing for a coach
Undoubtedly, only traditional places like hotels and some hostels offer bed and breakfast in Stockholm. The people who like “camping wild” will rather choose a free and cool option called “couchsurfing”. Without any big efforts you can find a vast number of hosts in Stockholm. It’s truly easy – register on Couchsurfing, find a citizen from the Swedish capital and contact him. It is the cheapest and – if you adore talking to new people – most fascinating way to explore Swedish Venetia.
