Be careful when traveling to Stockholm. As cost of living is expensive, expense of hotel gets really high.

Furthermore, as visitors barely know how Stockholm’s geography looks like, travelers tend to book hotel in a terribly remote place. Thus, I made a list of hotel and hostel that I can recommend or cannot recommend based on my experience of stay. It is highly subjective, but still it might be helpful when you plan to stay in Stockholm.

The locations of the hotels to be introduced are pinned below on Google Map.

I evaluated it with price, access, comfort, hip degree. For the price, the more the starts, the cheaper the expense of stays.

City Lodge Stockholm

If you are planning to stay in Stockholm with budget money, City Lodge Stockholm is one of the best hostels to stay. It is a cheap hostel with functional Wifi, five minutes on foot from Stockholm Central Station. I stayed here when I came to Stockholm for the first time. Staff speaks English fluently. Though it is near downtown area, the price is fairly cheap. You can stay here for less than $30. You get a door security code so you can come back late at night.

This is not a hostel, so it is rather expensive but I recommend it if you place importance on comfort and access. Because it is a hotel just above Stockholm Central Station where Arlanda Express arriving from airport. When you arrive at the platform of the central station, you step up the stairs at the exit on the opposite direction of normal exit where most of travelers get out. Comhort Hotel in front of you.

Castanea Old Town Hostel

This hostel in the old city, Gamla Stan, – where you can enjoy the middle of Stockholm – was very comfortable for its price! Moreover, because it is in the Old Town, you can enjoy the old city just by stepping out from the hotel immediately.

Many of the hotels in the Old Town often have old buildings themselves and lack comfort, but here it was good! However, we have to climb the cobbled road from Gamla stan station, so we can not recommend it for those who are coming with a big carry back.

I will not recommend it. Also in Gamla Stan, I had to walk farther from the station, the hotel’s buildings and outlook was tacky and the conditions were not very good. Anyway if you want to finish cheaply, it can be a possible candidate, but I would rather recommend other place to stay.

Rygerfjord Hotel & Hostel

This is a ship hostel located by Södermalm with oversight of Gamla Stan. It will be a walking distance from Slussen station, which is quite far, but it will be worth it after all. Because you can gaze Gamura Stan from the ship!  Neither room nor bed is hard to say comfortable, but if you still want to enjoy a quirky hotel, I can recommend. There is also a shipboard gay club “Patricia” just nearby.

Liljeholmens Stadshotell

This is the hotel which is located where you climbed a further long slope from the station called Lijehomen. The interior was freshly renovated and very new, and there was no inconvenience, but the access to the hotel was not good at all. It seems that it is not far from the city center on the map, but no, this is too far.

That’s why the evaluation is not so high.

This is a hotel located in fancy downtown Ostermalm. It is a hotel where my friends  from Japan stayed. It was very good for access, comfort, cost performance. Because it is in the middle of town where there are lords of night club and bar, I recommend it to those who want to enjoy nightlife.

Quality Hotel Globe

For some reason, the many groups of visitors from Japan use this hotel in general. Probably because it has a big capacity, I assume that it is easy to book a reservation for big group.

Honesty, access is the worst. Why is it? Because you have to walk 10 minutes in complicated route from subway station. This hotel is built by the world’s largest spherical dome Globen, which is used when a large-scale concert or sports event are hold. There is a bit of future city feeling, but it’s not really fancy. However, it is attractive that there is an entertainment facility “Tolv Stockholm” that you can enjoy Karaoke, table tennis, mini golf, bowling and shuffle board in the same building as Tele 2 Arena which is by the next to this hotel.

It is suitable for group of visitors more than 30 students.

This is the hotel where I stayed when I first came to Sweden. It is a luxury business hotel so the price is naturally expensive. Location cannot better than this as it is literally in front of the central station. Service, interior design, comfort are all the best. When visiting by business or visit, I can recommend hotels under Scandal group.

There are four Scandic hotels in the neighborhood as well.

Haymarket by Scandic

Haymarket is a fashionable retro luxury hotel opened by the Scandic hotel group in 2016. It is this in evaluation by luxury feeling wrapped in location, comfort and classical atmosphere.

The reason for setting Hipster as a standard for evaluation is to enlighten possibility to enjoy hipster life in Stockholm. Because I thought that there would be more people seeking for a hipster journey rather than typical sightseeing.

I’d like to recommend to such people, stay with Airbnb in the SoFo districts, which stands for “South of Folkungagatan” located in Södermalm and known as alternative hipster part of Stockholm.

The other day, when a  famous person visited Stockholm, I helped him to find a good apartment and discovered “Ljust nyrenoverat rum i SOFO” on Airbnb.

It was insanely good. 2 minute walk from the station, a fully elevator equipted building, high ceiling and clean kitchen and big living room. What’s more. SoFo area is ranked 5th in the world hipster city ranking. There are lords art galleries, cafés, antiques, clothing stores, pubs and bars and everything.

Although you might experience inconvenience when using Airbnb, the visitor who stayed here was extremely praised this place. If you have not registered yet, please register Airbnb by all means. Register now from here to get a coupon.

That’s it! Hope this “honest review” would help you find a good hotels in Stockholm.
