Cheap hotels in Östermalm, Stockholm
Like Vasastaden, Östermalm revolves in part around its greenery. The magnificent Humlegården, which encircles the Royal Library, is a brilliant swath of green. The lovely Karlavägen boulevard and cute Karlaplan circle are the heart of Östermalm.
Karlavägen is spotted with more lovely shops (do you sense a theme here in Stockholm?), buttressed on both sides by sleepy residential neighborhoods and stately apartment blocks.
