Graph: Next 20 Days of Stockholm Hotel Prices

Rates shown are nightly rates before taxes and do not necessarily reflect all Stockholm, Sweden discounts available. The chart reflects the cheapest Stockholm hotel for each day and each star rating category.

Stockholm's history dates back to the Ice Age when vast migrations flooded toward the area. The city's present-day location has been featured in many Norse sagas dating back to the mid 13th century when the existing core of Old Town was built, making it an important cultural site. Today, Stockholm is one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in Europe. It's also the political, cultural, economic, and media center of Sweden, helping to draw in countless tourists each year.

Whatever your reason for visiting Stockholm, you can rest assured that you'll find the right hotel that allows you to enjoy everything the city has to offer.

When to Visit Stockholm, Sweden

Stockholm may be one of Europe's most beautiful cities, but the weather is its chief complaint. Summer is undoubtedly the best time to visit, although you'll have to deal with pricey hotel rates and an influx of tourists. Temperatures are warmest during the summer months with average highs hovering around 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Although the hottest temperatures occur in mid-July, nighttime temperatures can be quite chilly, so dress in layers.

Stockholm winters are brutally cold, but this can be an attractive option if you're interested in winter sports. The city is also a great holiday destination since it provides the perfect snowy backdrop for Christmas.

If you don't mind brisk highs in the 50s and 60s, fall and spring are great seasons to visit. You won't have to deal with as many tourists, which means less wait time to get into some of the city's most popular attractions. Just be sure to bring plenty of outerwear.

Below is a chart of the current pricing seasonality of hotels and motels in Stockholm, Sweden:

Best Discounts in Stockholm, Sweden

Depending on where you want to stay, you can save even more money on your trip to Stockholm by taking advantage of discounts. Many area hotels advertise special offers that change frequently, which can give you more bang for your buck. Victory Hotel in Old Town, for instance, has several ongoing special offers, one of which is the “Visit Nobel” package. Booking this deal will get you admission into the nearby Nobel Museum, plus a discount on gift shop purchases.

Victory Hotel also offers a romantic package, as do many area hotels. These packages feature perks such as breakfast in bed, a box of chocolates or seasonal fruit, champagne, and access to spa services.

AAA and CAA members can also save big, even in Sweden. These discounts are generally limited to globally recognized chains, but you can save on everything from your room rate to spa treatments. And if you're a senior, government employee, military personnel, or business traveler, you may be eligible for discounts at Marriott hotels and similar properties.

Best Value Options in Stockholm, Sweden

Stockholm boasts many mid-range accommodations that give you plenty of value for your money. Clarion Hotel Stockholm, for instance, is a four-star hotel just a one-minute walk from the metro station. Designed with a glass façade, the hotel is modern and upscale, but guest rooms are relaxed. You'll enjoy free Wi-Fi, a mini fridge, and a flat-screen TV in a standard room, and a sitting area in an upgraded room. Family rooms and suites are also available, and 24/7 room service is a nice perk. In addition to great rooms, the hotel offers complimentary breakfast, an on-site restaurant with live entertainment, a gym, spa, yoga classes, and a pool.

Mornington Hotel Stockholm City is an unexpected library-themed hotel close to galleries and museums. It features bright rooms with books, flat-screen TVs, free Internet access, and coffee-making facilities. A complimentary breakfast buffet, sauna, fitness room, bar, and restaurant are also offered.

Overlooking the harbor, Hotel Esplanade AB is situated inside an art nouveau building. While the free Wi-Fi, minibars, balconies, and individually decorated rooms are great, the best part about this accommodation is its location near the Vasa Museum and Skansen Museum. Enjoy the on-site lounge with vintage décor, complimentary breakfast bar, and informal dining area.

An Insider’s Guide to Stockholm, Sweden

With so much to see, hear, and taste in Stockholm, planning your itinerary can feel a bit overwhelming. Regardless of whether you're here for a week or a weekend, you want to experience the best Stockholm has to offer, but it's nice to get off the tourist path every once in a while. To help you navigate the city during your stay, consider bookmarking this handy insider's guide.

Gamla Stan, the Old City, is not just a place to explore, but it's a place to get lost. The best way to experience it is to put away the maps and brochures and just wander around. You'd be surprised at how many streets you'll discover, and how many photograph-worthy subjects you'll encounter.

While most tourists undoubtedly end up in trendy bars, there's something to be said for Old City's basement pubs. These are not as widely advertised as other pubs because they're part of restaurants, but if you spot a basement pub, don't be afraid to head in and enjoy a drink in a historic building that dates back to the 1300s.

Familiarize yourself with the Swedish concept of fika. While there is no direct English translations, fika simply refers to the art of enjoying coffee, usually with an accompaniment of pastries or sandwiches. The Swedes love to indulge in fika after a busy day, so after spending hours touring the streets of Stockholm, take a break and have a fika.

Walking through the city is one thing, but Stockholm is built on water, meaning that a boat or ferry tour is a must. In fact, Stockholm is often referred to as the Venice of the North due to its abundance of water.

Whether you're looking to indulge in an upscale hotel or pinch pennies with a budget-friendly accommodation, Stockholm offers a little something for everyone.

Stockholm, Sweden summarized

The skyline of Stockholm is unlike any other cosmopolitan city in Europe. As the largest city in the Scandinavian region, Sweden's capital sprawls across 14 islands within an archipelago. At night, visitors can marvel at the cityscape's reflection against the waters of Lake Malaren with wonderful sights of grand royal residences, terracotta-hued buildings, wide green spaces and medieval Old Town. Stockholm's streets are laden with both prestige and an ultra-hip character. Prominent attractions such as the Royal Palace, City Hall, Drottningholm Palace and the House of Lords building remind you that this is truly one of Europe's best-looking capitals. As the city is embraced by nature, find time to take a boat ride along the waterways to catch a glimpse of Stockholm in its finest element. Experience a bit of local culture by joining the locals fishing right in the heart of the city. After sightseeing, move on to more modern pursuits by heading to Stockholm's shopping locales. Be prepared for a generous serving of innovative and funky designs typical of Swedish creativity, whether it's furniture or fashion you're after.

'Science and technology are asinine blades. Use them wisely and they will make your life wiser. Use them with stupidity and there will be no life left to live.

Alfred Nobel, the man and mind behind the famed invention of mines and dynamites, was all for the use of science in favor of humanity and in favor of progress, instead of using technology “ especially his inventions “ for purposes of destruction or enmity. 

In the long run, one would be justified in admitting that technology has been used equally in both quarters. On one hand we have nuclear energy sources, while on the other, the world sits on thousands of nuclear missiles capable of destroying our planet many times over. Nobel's words, in these perspectives, become quite pertinent. As it turns out, he was born in Stockholm, Sweden “ the city we are discussing in this article.
