The capital of Sweden, Stockholm is made up of 14 islands. So choosing the best hotel for your taste and budget can be a bit overwhelming at first. But some research will solve the problems. Remember that you can relay on the public transportation, but if you’ll stay in the city for just a couple of days , you’d want to be close to the sights.
Best areas to stay
Choosing the best area to stay in Stockholm depends on what you want to do here. The Old Town (Gamla Stan) is cozy but touristy and crowded. Östermalm is the area where you can find the upscale shops , while Södermalm is the trendy part of the town where you’ll find the younger crowds. Djurgården is basically a giant park where you’ll be close to the museums.
If you don’t mind staying further from the main sights , you can save some money and use the metro to get around. Or you can stay in a hostel.
