Where to stay in Stockholm
People who already have some experience of Scandinavia traveling know well about its costliness. To sum up and be brief we’d like to say that travelers searching for where to stay in Stockholm or Stockholm accomodation can select among these variants – relatively cheap (hostels, ships), moderately expensive (hotels) and really expensive (luxurious hotels).
If you don’t want to pay too much
Hotels belonging to globally known brands appear to be too expensive as places to stay in Stockholm for thrifty tourists and young people. Such people are typically not interested in luxe – they feel absolutely fine with more affordable Stockholm breakfast and bed. Basically young tourists and people who do not wish to waste much like hostels. There are many really good hostels in Stockholm, but we recommend you to also check available hotels.
Tens of authentic Swedish smaller hotels may be easily found all around the capital. The coolest thing about places like this is that from time to time they have incredibly interesting offers like seasonal offers and discounts. If hostels typically look the same in whole world the hotels are always different and it makes them more attractive.
What about staying on a ship?
From the map we can see that actually cheap accomodation in Stockholm is situated near water. Right, that’s why people often call Stockholm “Northern Venetia”. All ship hotels can be found in the central part of Stockholm so a tourist will have everything close. You will be surprised with how low the room prices in a ship are in comparison with other opportunities in Stockholm. What a nice accommodation in Stockholm, isn’t it?.
Read Internet forums and make sure that other tourists confirm it – hundreds of them prefer ships too. You will see that tourists love ship hotels due to the advantages 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
Rental house or apartment can also be a worthy idea. But prepare yourself for quite expensive offers – remember that wages and pension in Sweden are high and local inhabitants can easily afford such rent. It means that Swedish people are OK with such prices, but tourists are usually disappointed.
But much cheaper houses and apartments may be found in the outskirts. You will then save money and see better how Stockholm people live. That’s an awesome experience too. Moreover it is the best chance to make a comparison between Stockholm center with other its areas.
Renting an apartment or a house can be the most attractive option for the people who have already been to Swedish capital and seen its points of interest. There are tons of cool things in non-touristic districts too. That is how one can see the complete view of Stockholm.
Luxury and comfort
Finally, there is another segment of tourists. These are the people needing absolute comfort in everything. You can enjoy all these benefits only in a 4 or 5 star hotel. Global hotel chains can be easily found in Stockholm. Additionally you could eye up some local hotel chains. Small local hotels could also be luxurious and comfortable enough to satisfy all your requirements.
As for putting up at the very center we would recommend Grand Hotel – its situation is undoubtedly the best. Historical sites, restaurants, museums – everything is located within a walking distance from Grand Hotel. The only minus is that the room costs are higher than in most of Western countries.
Surfing for a coach
When speaking about bed and breakfast in Stockholm we all start thinking mainly about hotels, cheaper hostels and rental apartments. The people who love travel independently will certainly prefer a free and cool option called “couchsurfing”. There you will see thousands of hospitable people from various countries and towns including, of course, Stockholm who invite tourists to come and stay. All one needs to do is to register in this service, then find such a person and contact him through website private chat. It is the most affordable and – if you adore meeting new people – most interesting way to explore Stockholm.
