Stockholm is famous for being beautiful… and pricey. However, don’t let that scare you away! Visiting the Swedish capital on a budget is easier than you think, especially when you check in at one of our favorite budget hotels in Stockholm.
The city’s popular Old Town (Gamla Stan) is charming, and excellent cultural centers and museums abound. Stockholm is situated on 14 islands, so you’ll rarely go without a lovely waterfront view, and the city even offers several “botels” where you can live your dream of sleeping on a boat.

Rex Petit features charming decor (we love the old stone walls) and plenty of amenities for a low price. Rooms are newly renovated, and the hotel is located in a quiet area. All the rooms are located in the basement of the fancier Rex Hotel, so don’t stay here if you’re expecting a view. But the reasonable rates (especially for Stockholm) at Rex Petit make it a very popular choice — be sure to book well in advance! Read the full review

Housed in a 1920s building, the elegant Wasa Park Hotel offers quiet, budget-friendly rooms just a short walk from the city center. Rooms are decorated simply, and bathrooms — both shared and en suite — are spotless. Staying here feels like staying in a local apartment rather than a hotel, making it a great home away from home.
