Cheap hotels in Gamla Stan, Stockholm
Dating back to the 13th century, Gamla Stan is the original Stockholm. Grand baroque architecture, winding cobblestone streets, a former royal residence, a cathedral, and some tremendous waterfront views make this small area a don't-miss sightseeing zone.
It's also fairly convenient, as Gamla Stan bridges bustling Norrmalm to the north and hip Södermalm south. Staying in perfectly preserved Gamla Stan isn't easy. There are a limited number of hotels, which are either very upscale or backpacker-oriented.
The bulk of Gamla Stan is on the island Stadsholmen, Riddarholmen, the tiny island just to the west, is usually seen as part of Gamla Stan.
