Where to stay in Stockholm
Tourists who already have some experience of Scandinavia traveling know well about its costliness. In short we would like to say that travelers searching for where to stay in Stockholm or Stockholm accomodation could choose among the following options – affordable (hostels, ships), moderately costly (hotels) and really expensive (luxurious hotels).
Hotels of worldwide known companies are really too costly as places to stay in Stockholm for thrifty tourists and students. Such a choice is absolutely normal in cases when super comfort of Stockholm b&b plays no role for certain type of foreign tourists. It makes all hostels and other budget accommodations so demanded. But don’t hurry up too much – actually you have an amazing opportunity to stay in a hotel which is undoubtedly more comfortable than any hostel paying same amount of money.
There are tens of small hotels made in that remarkable Swedish style. The possibility to chance upon an awesome discount and reserve a brilliant hotel room for low price is very high. If hostels mostly have the same look in whole world the hotels are mainly different and therefore much more beautiful.
Check out a ship hotel
Those who are good at geography know that Swedish capitan is an island city and cheap accomodation in Stockholm can be found on ships. Thus there is nothing surprising in the title “Northern Venetia” granted by tourists. It’s really convenient to stay in a ship because basically all ships are located in very beautiful parts of the city. There are both cheaper hotels and hostels in such ships from 20 Euros for a room. That is really nice accomodation in Stockholm!.
Experienced tourists also claim that staying in a ship is actually much better than in any “land hotel”. The travelers say that it’s incredibly convenient to live in a ship due to fantastic location. So you will get both available price and small distance to dozens of fabulous attractions.
Turn into a local citizen
If you like more comfort and freedom you can check rental apartments or houses. It is relatively costly choice, but you should keep in mind that average wage and pension in Sweden is among the highest in the world. Well, that is the reason of why houses for rent are not much popular.
But much cheaper houses and apartments can be found in the outskirts. You will thus cut expenses and see better how Stockholm people live. That’s an awesome experience as well. You will be able to compare it to the touristic part of Stockholm too.
Renting a house or an apartment may become the most attractive solution for the travelers who have already visited Swedish capital and seen its attractions. There are many awesome things around non-touristic areas too. Living among Swedish local people will allow you to get the full picture.
Luxury and comfort
Nevertheless, some of us need top level of comfort. If you really need to have a great bed, a big bathroom and tasty breakfasts and dinners – select a hotel. Global hotel chains have strong market position in Stockholm. Local hotel chains can be interesting too. Furthermore, you will definitely see some hotels which look much more beautiful and much more Swedish.
As for putting up at the very city center we would recommend you Grand Hotel – its location is undoubtedly the best. Historical sites, museums, restaurants – everything is located within a walking distance from Grand Hotel. But don’t forget about really high prices – they can be even higher than in most of other Western European capitals.
Surfing for a coach
When talking about bed and breakfast in Stockholm we immediately start thinking mainly about hotels, cheaper hostels and rental apartments. But still, there is a different way to find a place for open-minded people – a great service called Couchsurfing. There you will meet hundreds of hospitable people from various countries and cities including, of course, Stockholm who invite tourists to come and stay. There is nothing complicated at all – register a new account on Couchsurfing and find an available host in Stockholm. It’s going to be a really affordable way to discover the city and to find new good friends.
