Where to stay in Stockholm
Travelers who already have experience of Scandinavia traveling know well about its high prices. Thus when talking about where to stay in Stockholm we say there are several types of Stockholm accomodation – affordable hostels, medium hotels and expensive luxurious hotels and apartments.
Not every tourist wants and can pay for places to stay in Stockholm like a costly hotel – for example Park Inn or Sheraton. The main aim for such kind of tourists is to simply enjoy the city and to discover as much as they can, they are not tightly connected to a certain Stockholm b&b place. All money savers and students usually try to find a cheaper accommodation in Stockholm. There are lots of really good hostels in Stockholm, however we suggest that you check available hotels.
Tens of authentic Swedish stylish and neat hotels may be found in the central part the city. The most pleasant thing about them is that from time to time they present really bargain price offers like seasonal offers and various discounts. To sum up, it’s better to find a room in such an authentic Swedish hotel than to choose a typical hostel nearly always full of noisy guests.
Live in a ship!
Those who like geography also know that Swedish capitan is an island city and cheap accomodation in Stockholm can be found on ships. So there is no wonder about the name “Northern Venetia” granted by tourists. It’s very convenient to stay in a ship because all ships are in very beautiful parts of the city. There are both cheaper hotels and hostels in ships beginning with 20 Euros for a room. What a nice accommodation in Stockholm, isn’t it?.
The confirmation of it can be easily found on any of touristic forums devoted to Stockholm – just people. According to their words, Stockholm ships are indeed staying near the city center. So you will get both available price and small distance to dozens of fabulous attractions.
Feel the life of a Stockholm inhabitant
Another option is to rent an apartment or even a house. That’s relatively costly choice, but you should keep in mind that average salary and pension in Sweden is almost the highest in the whole world. It means that locals feel well with such prices, but tourists are usually disappointed.
But much more affordable houses and apartments may be found in the city outskirts. It will let you save decent sum and understand how locals in ordinary districts live. It will become a nice time for you. Furthermore it is the best opportunity to make a comparison between Stockholm center with other areas.
Rental apartments and houses suit well visitors who are not keen on finding each and every attraction. Every city always has two sides of life and Stockholm is no exception here. If you wish to see the full picture – live among locals but not with other tourists.
Luxury and comfort
Some travelers, however, prefer staying in total comfort. If you want to possess a very comfortable bed, a big bathroom and tasty meals in the hotel restaurant – choose a hotel. World hotel companies can be easily found in Stockholm. It’s a nice idea to check out local hotel chains too. Small Stockholm hotels can also be luxurious and comfortable enough to satisfy all your expectations.
The best situation among all luxurious hotels belongs to Grand Hotel. All big museums, all great views and all awesome bars and clubs are within walking distance that is super convenient. The only minus is that the room prices are higher than in other Western cities.
Surfing for a coach
When talking about bed and breakfast in Stockholm we all start thinking mainly about hotels, cheaper hostels and rental apartments. Those who love travel independently will certainly prefer a free option called “couchsurfing”. Without any real efforts you may find a large number of possible hosts in Stockholm. All you should do is to make an account in this service, then find a suitable host and contact him or her via private messages. It will be the most affordable and – if you like talking to new people – most interesting way to discover Swedish capital.
