Uncovering Europe's best budget hotels since 2001.

Expert reviews of cheap hotels in Stockholm

Who are we? EuroCheapo is a guide to cheap hotels in Stockholm and throughout Europe. We have visited, inspected and photographed hotels in otherwise pricey Stockholm, and all of our recommendations are clean, central and affordable.

Stockholm, and most of Scandinavia for that matter, is famously pricey. But we Cheapos love a challenge! Our Stockholm editor visited every affordable hotel he could find in town, along with some (very clean) hostels and even a few floating “botels.”

Getting started: To find a budget hotel in Stockholm, search by your travel dates in the box above or check out our list of recommended hotels. If you’d like some advice on choosing the right neighborhood, read through our neighborhood overview. And for additional tips on ways to lower your trip budget in Stockholm (and who couldn’t use some more tips with that?), spend some time on the articles listed below.
