Accommodation in Stockholm
Scenic views of the Baltic Sea
With the inner-city made up of 14 islands, beautiful sea views are not hard to come by and many high-end hotels boast the most superb locales along the waterfront. Luxury begins at the exquisite Grand Hotel, offering a medley of world-class dining venues as well as stunning views across the water to the Royal Palace.
Hotel Diplomat stands in the affluent Ostermaln neighbourhood and is a stunning Art Nouveau building on the water’s edge, boasting elegant interiors and the chic T/BAR restaurant with sun-drenched terrace. Across the bay is the Radisson Blu Strand Hotel, delivering a lavish experience within easy reach of popular museums and parks.
Unique houseboat experience
If you’re looking for affordable accommodation with a unique edge, then a handful of charming houseboat-hotels are guaranteed to deliver a unique lodging experience. Although they cater for the budget-minded traveller, each houseboat features all the modern amenities required for a comfortable stay.
The Red Boat hostel and hotel, docked off the island of Sodermalm, offers a quirky base for travellers, featuring rustic interiors, cosy cabin-style rooms, and a restaurant and bar. Hotell M/S Monika is based in the relaxed Kungsholmen neighbourhood, just a stone’s throw from a collection of trendy waterfront restaurants and bars, while the historic STF af Chapman is housed within an impressive ship from the 1800s.
Encircled by attractions in the Old Town
If you’re looking to stay within the heart of the historic city, there are a collection of hotels to choose from nestled along the winding cobblestone lanes.
