Find a place to stay in Stockholm
All tourists who have already enjoyed Sweden and Scandinavia perfectly know that it is certainly not the most affordable touristic place in the world. To sum up and be brief we would like to say that travelers searching for where to stay in Stockholm or Stockholm accomodation may select among these variants – affordable (ships, hostels, some hotels), moderately expensive (hotels) and finally really expensive (luxurious hotels).
Hotels of globally known players appear to be too costly as
r thrifty travelers and young people. The main purpose for such people is to explore the capital and to see as much as possible, they are not confined to a exact Stockholm b&b place. All money savers and young students usually try to find a cheaper place. Fortunately, serious competition about Stockholm hotels makes them provide great discounts and bargain offers – take the advantage of it if you don’t really like hostels but don’t want to pay too much.
Just go for a walk around Stockholm and you will soon see really many tiny and nice hotels with affordable cost. The most pleasant thing about places like this is that once in a while they present really tempting offers like offers for a season and discounts. All in all, it’s better to find a room in an authentic hotel than to choose a typical hostel full of noise and impolite meanies.
Live in a ship!
Could you imagine that cheap accommodation in Stockholm can be found not on the land only but in the water? Thus there is nothing surprising in the title “Northern Venetia” given by tourists. All ship hotels can be found in the heart of Stockholm so you will have everything close. Eventually, the biggest advantage is that the ships are much cheaper than ordinary hotels. One will hardly find more unusual accomodation in Stockholm.
Check Internet forums and see that others confirm it – hundreds of them also prefer ships. 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
Rental apartments and houses can also become a worthy idea. That’s relatively costly choice, but you need to keep in mind that the average salary and pension in Sweden is nearly the highest in the whole world. Actually that is the reason of why rental houses are not much popular.
Nevertheless, it doesn’t mean you cannot find cheaper apartments several miles from the center. It will let you save some decent sum and see how local people in ordinary districts live. Undoubtedly, such experience is incredibly interesting. You will be able to compare it to the touristic part of Stockholm too.
Rental apartments perfectly suit visitors who are not keen on finding each and every point of interest. Each city has 2 sides and Stockholm is no exception here. Living side by side with locals will allow you to get the full picture.
Luxury and comfort
Some travelers, at the same time, prefer putting up at absolutely comfort. A prestigious hotel with ample rooms and delicious breakfasts are the best choice then. Stockholm can offer a great deal of international hotel chains. Local hotel chains can be attractive too. Small local hotels can also be comfortable enough to satisfy all your requirements.
Grand Hotel is probably the best place where a tourist could put up at since this hotel is located right in the very heart of the Swedish capital. All big museums, all splendid views and all cool bars and clubs will be within walking distance which is really convenient. Unluckily, the room prices can be astonishing for the tourists who expected the room prices in other Western countries.
Surfing for a coach
Undoubtedly, only traditional resorts like hotels offer bed and breakfast in Stockholm. The people who like travel independently will rather prefer a free thing called “couchsurfing”. There you will meet hundreds of people from various countries and towns including, of course, Stockholm who invite everyone to stay. It’s incredibly easy – create an account on Couchsurfing, find a citizen from the Swedish capital and then send a message to him or her. It will be the most affordable and – if you like knowing new people – most fascinating way to discover Stockholm.
