The perennial appeal of Stockholm as a visitor destination means its hotel stock caters to a full spectrum of tastes and budgets. The central districts of Gamla Stan (the Old Town), Södermalm and Norrmalm tend to draw the most interest among visitors. Prices in hotels in Stockholm go down by as much as 50% in summer (thanks to the decline in business travel over the period) and at the weekend in winter, so it is always worth checking whether a hotel has a special offer on.
The hotels below have been grouped into three pricing categories:
Luxury (over Skr2,500)
Moderate (Skr1,200 to Skr2,500)
Cheap (up to Skr1,200)
These prices are the lowest standard rates for a double room in winter, including sales tax. Breakfast is usually included, unless otherwise stated. Sales tax at 12% is automatically added to the bill. Tipping of porters is common, although tipping for room service is not expected.
