Where to stay in Stockholm
Visitors to the popular Swedish capital of Stockholm can find accommodation for all tastes and preferences ranging from classic luxury establishments to trendy chic hotels.
There is plenty to see and do with great restaurants and cafes as well as various museums, including the ABBA museum for those interested in popular Swedish music history. Getting around is easy with excellent public transportation by way of metro/subway, bus, commuter train and tram, or by the ferry and sightseeing boat shuttle services that take visitors and locals between the islands. Renting a car in Stockholm is also an option.
The city itself comprises 14 islands and more than 50 bridges on what is an extensive and beautiful archipelago. The Old Town (or Gamla as it is known) is home to the Nobel Museum, the 13th-century Storkyrkan Cathedral and the Kungliga Slottet Royal Palace.
Hotels in Stockholm
One of the most famous hotels in the city, the Grand Hotel Stockholm is centrally located just steps from the National Museum and a short walk from the Royal Armoury. Since 1874, the hotel has welcomed royalty and nobility to its waterfront location overlooking the Royal Palace and the city's Old Town. Among the Grand Hotel's excellent facilities is the Nordic Spa & Fitness Club boasting cool dipping pools and hot saunas.
2. Hotel Rival
Also centrally located, the mid-range Hotel Rival hosts guests just minutes from the Van der Nootska Palace and Maria Square. Pop music fans will be delighted to know that the hotel is owned by ABBA's Benny Andersson who has created a warm and personal hotel that re-opened in 2003 following extensive renovations and even features its own 700-seater theater.
The Clarion-managed hotel is a budget-priced option close to the Stockholm Olympic Stadium, the Museum of National Antiquities, Junibacken storybook house and theme park, the Nordic Museum, the Strindberg Museum and Skansen, the oldest open-air museum in the world and also a zoo. The hotel offers free organic breakfast and a light evening buffet, complimentary newspaper and coffee and access to the sauna facilities.

The city is very beautiful. The architecture is very pretty and even the metro stations host lovely art exhibits. If you take the metro to some of the further stations you can find beautiful lakes and walking trails etc. There are a few free museums which you can visit which was definitely very useful because the city is super expensive. If you're looking to go here on a budget, I'd recommend only eating in restaurants at lunchtime (as most have decent deals) and for dinner, buying food from a supermarket, which I personally didn't feel were too expensive.
I go there almost every year. It become a bit boring, I would say it’s a lovely city and you would really love it but I doubt it if anyone will go twice just for tourism. It’s not easy & not cheap to get there plus it’s super expensive.
It is a beautiful city, with lots of art and things to do. However, I feel it is a little overrated.
From museums to island hopping, there are boundless things to do here. Museums galore and shops to adore, there is something for every taste.
