Budget-Friendly Hotels

Stockholm has a range of hotels from simple rooms with a single bed to luxury resorts, and their rates range as well. Luckily if you are traveling on a limited budget, there are several great hotels in Stockholm. If your budget it very tight, consider staying in a hostel. Like most European cities, there are several great hostels to choose between, including the Lodge32. Lodge32 offers guests a safe, clean place to stay for about $40 USD per night.

If staying at a hostel is not appealing to you, and your budget allows for a little more money a stay at the Colonial Hotel is possible. For about $55 USD per night, you can stay in this simple hotel that includes a free breakfast. Now if you want to stay in a four-star hotel that is still budget-friendly look into the Mornington Hotel Stockholm Bromma. This beautiful hotel features modern decor, a restaurant and bar, and free WiFi all for under $100 USD per night.


There is an extensive public transportation system throughout Stockholm that makes it incredibly easy for locals and tourists alike to travel around the city. Buses and trains have regular stops at all the places you want to visit and all for an affordable price. To save money, buy a 72-hour pass that gives you unlimited rides for 72 hours.

Money-Saving Tips

A great way to save money on your vacation in Stockholm is to buy a Stockholm Card. This card gives you access to more than 75 museums and attractions, and it allows you to travel via public transportation for free.

Free Things To-Do

A favorite free activity to take part in when visiting Stockholm is Free Tour Stockholm. These are walking tours that teach you about the history and culture of the city. You learn so much about the city and find out things you probably would not on your own.

Traveling both near and far is expensive, but it doesn’t have to be. With a little knowledge, time, and planning, make your next trip to Stockholm budget-friendly.
