Bed and breakfast in Stockholm

All people who have been to Sweden and Scandinavia know that it’s definitely not the cheapest touristic place in the world. To sum up and be brief we’d like to say that people searching for where to stay in Stockholm or Stockholm accomodation may choose among the following options – more or less cheap (ships, hostels, some hotels), moderately costly (hotels) and expensive (luxurious hotels).
If you don’t want to pay too much
Hotels of globally known companies are really too costly as places to stay in Stockholm for cheap visitors and foreign students. The main aim for that kind of tourists is to enjoy the capital and to discover as much as possible, they are not connected to a certain Stockholm b&b place. It makes hostels and other affordable accommodations so popular. There are lots of great hostels in Stockholm, but we recommend you to also check available hotels.
There are tens of tiny unusual hotels which have that charming Swedish style and design. The probability to come on an awesome seasonal discount and reserve a nice hotel room for low price is truly high. Finally, it’s much better to book a room in a local original Swedish hotel than to select a boring hostel often full of noise and impolite guests.

What about staying on a ship?
Those who know geography know that Swedish capitan is an island city and cheap accomodation in Stockholm can be found on ships. It is the main reason for people calling it “Northern Venetia”. Getting a room in a ship provides you with a big opportunity to stay in the very center. Finally, the biggest advantage is that the ships are much cheaper than ordinary hotels. One will hardly find more unusual accomodation in Stockholm.
The confirmation for it can be found on any of touristic forums devoted to Stockholm – just people. You will see that tourists like ship hotels because of the pluses described above. It means that you will not be living in a cool place but also have all main attraction sites right near.
Be a Swedish
Another great option is to rent an apartment or even a house. It is relatively expensive choice, but you need to keep in mind that the average salary and pension in Sweden is nearly the highest in the world. It means that Swedish people are not afraid of such prices, but tourists are often disappointed.
However, it doesn’t mean that you can’t find less expensive apartments several kilometers away from the center. It’s not about saving money only – you will live the same life just as the local inhabitants do. That’s an awesome experience as well. It is also a fabulous chance to see whether there is a significant different between center and other areas of Stockholm.
If you would like to see an ordinary life in Stockholm staying in a small house far from center is obviously the best decision. There are many awesome things around non-touristic areas too. That’s how one can see the full view of the Swedish capital.
Luxury and comfort
Certain travelers, however, prefer putting up at total comfort. A prestigious hotel with big and clean rooms and tasty breakfasts are the best then. World hotel chains have strong position in Stockholm. Local hotel chains can seem attractive too. Small Stockholm hotels can also be comfortable enough to meet all your expectations.
Grand Hotel is probably the best spot where a wealthy tourist could put up at since this amazing hotel is situated in the very heart of the city. Historical places, museums, restaurants – everything is situated within a short walking distance from Grand Hotel. Unfortunately, the booking costs can be astonishing for the tourists who counted on the costs for rooms like in other Western countries.
Surfing for a coach
Surely, only traditional places like hotels and some hostels offer bed and breakfast in Stockholm. The tourists who love “camping wild” will rather choose a free option called “couchsurfing”. Without any real efforts you can find a vast number of hosts in the capital of Sweden. There is nothing complicated in it at all – make an profile on Couchsurfing and find a Stockholm host. It is the cheapest and – if you adore knowing new people – most fascinating way to explore Swedish Venetia.
