It's not easy to find cheap hotels in Stockholm, but we're here to help you have an affordable break...
Hotels in Stockholm are renowned for cleanliness and comfort, and if the Swedish Krona is behaving itself, you can sometimes clinch a deal in this otherwise expensive Scandinavian country.
The best budget hotels will be snapped up quickly by visitors looking to spend more on good times than Stockholm hotels, so be quick to book if you're keeping a close eye on your budget. There are some excellent options, with many occupying prime locations and some offering a one-off accommodation experience (fancy staying on a boat in Stockholm?).
Stockholm offers a really fine line in luxury hotels and four- and five-star hotels. The unique layout of the city equates to a number of hotels on the waterfront, and you can sit with a glass of something chilled and watch life on the lake from the comfort of your room.
If you want to use a well-known brand then there are plenty to choose from, including Scandinavian chains. Pick from Scandic, Radisson Blu, Rica Hotel, Clarion, Ibis, Intercontinental, Hilton, Best Western, Park Inn, Elite and Quality Hotels.
Don't be too confused by the thought of selecting the island on which to base your break. Most hotels are concentrated on lively Södermalm, the old town island of Gamla Stan, and the main part of the city to the north of Gamla Stan.
Gamla Stan occupies such a central position that many visitors choose to stay here, amid the cobbled streets and historical buildings.
