Hotell Kristenberg. We were very satisfied with the rooms and the food.
The rooms were charming and well-decorated. Comfortable bed.
If you consider that the price level for accomodation is very high in all Scandinavia and especially in Stockholm, I think the Best Western Hotel Terminus is good value - at least if you go for the weekend rates (a single room will cost about 80 € even then!). It's located just across from the Main Railway Station, a five minutes' walk to the old town and Stadshuset and has small, but cosy and quite comfortable rooms - but don't be frightened if the ground is shaking a bit every two minutes, it's not an earthquake but the 'tunnelbanan' (subway) that has its main station right underneath the hotel. There is also a restaurant and bar but it was quite empty all the time so we didn't go there except for a drink. But due to the location this doesn't matter at all.
Stockholm Hotels are EXPENSIVE... so, if you are on a budget, a youth hostel is a great alternative. The standard of Sweden youth hostels is about the best I have ever seen, often more lika a pension or a small hotel. You usually can get a room for yourself - and almost certainly if you are two people travelling together!
Af Chapman is a youth hostel inside a beautyful, old ship - located downtown, in the middle of the center! If you wish to visit the archipelago, there are lots of youth hostels where you can rent a boat, have a sauna...

I stayed in an apartment in the south of stockholm in an area called Gamla Enskede.It's a very nice apartment in part of villa with private entrance. The apartment has one bedroom with 'grand-lit' bed,sofa bed with high quality in living room, small kitchen and bath room.
The apartment we stayed in was 600SEK per night shared between 4 people.
Sweden has a large number of motels, which are ideal for family touring holidays because they are easy to reach and are usually located on the outskirts of towns or in agreeable countryside areas. Many have family rooms with four beds at very reasonable rates. Check with the local tourist office or details of names and addresses.
BED & BREAKFAST
The bed and breakfast system is becoming more popular in Sweden. For inexpensive board, look for the Rum sign. It means 'room' literally and practically, i.e. it does not include breakfast. Ask at local tourist offices if any rum accommodating is available. Prices are extremely reasonable.
CHOOSING A HOTEL
Swedish hotels are of a uniformly high standard, although they are expensive. Over the past few years, hoteliers have been increasing their prices at an annual rate of 10 percent, well above the country’s level of inflation. However, particularly in the larger towns and cities, hotel rates do come down in high summer because the expense-account business travelers, on whom they depend for their profits, are on holiday themselves.
Accommodation is, as everyone already knows, rather expensive. We have been staying in a middle class hotel on a boat called “Mälardrottningen”. The are two other more reasonable accommodations, the “Af Chapman”, also a boat, and a previous prison The “Langholmen Vandrarhem”. I will list them, but I cannot give a personal recommendation. In all cases it is advisable to make a reservation as soon as you know that and when you will go to Stockholm.
In the Tourist office they also have catalogues on “Bed and Breakfast”, unfortunately not in the city, but only on the little islands in the East Sea.
1. Mälardrottningen , Double room approx 125 US $, Small rooms with a small toilet and shower
2. Af Chapman,
3. Langholmen Vandrarhem
1. old (lake) boat (Diesel), good location close to the old city “Gamla Stan”
2. old sailing boat
3. previous prison
Zinkensdamm Youth Hostel & Hotel is a really nice and friendly hostel in Soedermalm area of Stockholm. We paid 140 Swedish Crowns for a night. in a 4 bedded room (approx. 15 Euros).
One of the nicest hostels I've ever stayed in. Nice backyard where you can sit in the evenings like in a beergarden. Great beds and rooms. Everybody gets their own locker in the room. Very friendly staff.
We were able to book an apartment (well in advance) that was beautifully decorated and $85 a night for a week. It was just barely north of the shopping district. We used buses to get EVERYWHERE. Extremely convenient and the best deal in town compared to regular accommodations. Picture is nightscape from our apartment.

Have you ever dreamt of living on one of those big old ships that sailed the Atlantic hundreds of years ago? Well, here's your chance! Af Chapman has cheap, but very popular, lodging. Book in advance!
When I stayed at Långholmen, the price of a single room was the equivalent of GBP 60 with a charge of GBP 10 for a second occupant.
This is the old prison which has been converted into a hotel and a youth hostel. I stayed in the hotel. Except for a few double rooms, the rooms comprise one and a half 'cells'. The whole cell is your bedroom, and the half is for the toilet and shower. It is basically a single room, but there is a flip down bunk above the main bed, like that found in European 'Couchette' railway carriages. The room is equipped with television, including some English speaking channels.
In keeping with the prison theme, the staff are uniformed, and the old exercise yard is kept complete with its watch-tower manned by a 'dummy' warder.
I enjoyed a pleasant early-morning walk around the island.
The food in the restaurant is apparently excellent, although I only had the breakfast, which was one of the best I've had in my travels to hotels (some B&Bs can be amazing).
In Stockholm I slept in a hostel that I can suggest you. There's many hostel in the town, the hostel I choose was the Af Chapman & Skeppsholmen.
About 160/190 SEK for night per person. I want remember you that 1 SEK is 0.103 EUR or 0.095 USD.
The unique qualities of this hostel is that there are two different place where to sleep. You can go in a building or in a boat. I suggest the second one, it's very nice.
