Your guide to budget hotels in Stockholm

01

Rex Petit

Rex Petit is a small family-owned hotel located on a quiet street in Norrmalm. There are 22 double rooms, some with bunk beds and some with queen size beds. The cabin rooms have no windows. All rooms are sound-proofed and rather small, but so are the prices. Despite the low process the hotel is stylish and convenient, all rooms have free WiFi access and flat-screen TV and all but four have private bathrooms, and breakfast is included. The hotel is the “little sister” of the hotel family, and across the street, at Hellsten Hotel there is a cool bar called the Hellsten Earth Bar. Come here for great drinks, and on Thursdays and Saturdays for live jazz! Check the website for more information.

The Red Boat

The Red Boat on Söder Mälarstrand

Stockholm is a city surrounded by water so it makes sense that you might want to sleep on a boat. Yes, a boat. Or, to be perfectly correct, two boats: Ran of Stockholm and The Red Boat. The hotel rooms have bed linen, towels, WiFi, and cabel TV in the room. For the slightly cheaper hostel rooms, the WiFi and cabel TV are available in common areas. The boats are moored at the dock, along Söder Mälarstrand, within walking distance of Slussen. The reception is manned every day between 7 AM and 11 PM. It is possible to order breakfast on the boat, but Södermalm also offers a lot of nice coffee shops if you feel like exploring the area.
