Bed and breakfast in Stockholm
People who already have some experience of Scandinavia traveling know well about its high prices. In short we’d like to say that tourists searching for where to stay in Stockholm or Stockholm accomodation could select among these variants – relatively cheap (hostels, ships), moderately expensive (hotels) and finally expensive (luxurious hotels).
Well, Scandic or Sheraton are rather not suitable places to stay in Stockholm for students and for thrifty tourists. Such a decision is just normal since high level of comfort of Stockholm b&b is not important for certain type of foreign tourists. All money savers and students prefer to find a cheaper place. But don’t hurry up too much – you have a big chance to stay in a hotel that is more comfortable than any hostel paying same money.
Take a good walk around Stockholm and you will find a vast number of tiny and nice hotels with affordable cost. The best thing related to places like this is that once in a while they present incredibly attractive offers like offers for a season and discounts. Finally, it’s much better to get a room in an authentic Swedish hotel than to put up at a boring hostel nearly always full of noisy people.
What about staying on a ship?
On the map we see that actually cheap accomodation in Stockholm is located near big water. It is the reason for calling it “Northern Venetia”. It’s very convenient to put up at a ship since all ships are located in very beautiful parts of the city. There are both affordable hotels and hostels in such ships beginning with 20 Euros for a room. One will hardly find more unusual accomodation in Stockholm.
Experienced tourists also claim that choosing a ship is actually much better and cheaper than in any “land hotel”. You will see yourself that people adore ship hotels due to all of the benefits described above. It means that you will not be living in a cool place but also have all main attraction sites right near.
Feel the life of a Stockholm inhabitant
Rental house or apartment may also become a worthy idea. That is relatively expensive choice, but you need to remember 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 would be to find a small house located far from the city center. You will thus cut expenses and see how Stockholm inhabitants live. With no doubts, such experience is very good. Moreover it is the best opportunity to make a comparison between city center with other its districts.
Rental apartments and houses perfectly suit those who are not keen on seeing absolutely every attraction. Non-touristic parts are also very interesting. That is how you can get the full view of Stockholm.
Luxury and comfort
Certain travelers, however, prefer staying in total comfort. A good hotel with big and clean rooms and delicious breakfasts are the best choice then. Global hotel companies can be easily found in Stockholm. Local hotel chains can be attractive too. Furthermore, you will see some single hotels that look much more stylish and much more Swedish.
As for putting up at the very city center we could recommend Grand Hotel – its situation is the best. You will be able to quickly walk to a lot of attractions from the hotel. Unfortunately, the booking costs can be disappointing for the tourists who counted on the costs for rooms like in other Western countries.
Find new friends and a new couch
When speaking about bed and breakfast in Stockholm we immediately think mainly about hotels, cheaper hostels and rental apartments. Those who love travel independently will certainly prefer a free and cool option called “couchsurfing”. There you will meet thousands of hospitable people from various countries and cities including Stockholm who are inviting tourists to come and stay. It’s truly easy – create an account on Couchsurfing, find a possible host living in the Swedish capital and send a message to him or her. That’s how you’ll not only explore this fantastic city but also meet dozens of new interesting people.
