Where to stay in Stockholm

Glitzy Stockholm provides an abundance of high-end four-star hotels and international chains that come with a reputation of being pricey and feature a distinguished Scandinavian design. You can save yourself a little money by searching out the discounts these hotels often offer. If you're looking for something more affordable, consider the medium-priced hotels north of the Old Town. The least-expensive options lie near Central Station. Since offerings tend to be more affordable the farther you go from the city center, you'll serve yourself well to find a spot near public transport. Hostels in the city tend to fill up fast, so book online in advance. Many of hotels offer the

  • First it's free, so it's already a good idea. The displays are interesting and educational for both children and adults. The space is well designed and planned so you can digest the material in an hour or so.
  • Very nice to see a deep and comprehensive history of a place well represented, with models, mock-ups and artefacts. Very knowledgeable and relevant. This place will leave you with an impression.
  • Nice museum, which informs about life in medieval Stockholm. The presentation of the exhibits is nicely and carefully done. Entrance is free, which is a nice bonus.
  • Another amazing free museum in Stockholm for the whole family. Gives a great feel of what Stockholm was like with many things kids can interact with. My 6-year-old and I went back twice during our stay in Stockholm.
  • Great museum built underground, with a knowledgeable crew who are open to questions about the exhibits. You can even wear pieces of an actual suit of plate armor.
