The Best Hotels in Stockholm, Sweden

The StarTripper Journal presents the best places to stay in Stockholm, both international luxury and boutique choices.

Our team to Stockholm are four young professional travelers who have tested a lot of hotels, restaurants and night-clubs world-wide.

Stockholm “the beauty on water” is spread across 14 islands. Bridges, ferries and the metro link it all together. Walking is often a good way to get around and exploring the city – but check distances before setting out – a bus or metro ticket is cheap.

Stockholm’s beauty and fashion sense are legendary – it is modern, dynamic and ever-changing. Good design is simply a must – even the humblest coffee shop invests in attractive furniture, strategically placed greenery, sophisticated lighting and richly textured wall coverings.

Stockholm has a lot of shopping options. The essence of Swedish fashion is simple, wearable looks with a high trend factor and at reasonable prices – fashion is one of the most popular forms of contemporary cultural expression.

Go to Stockholm’s prime fashion shopping districts Drottninggatan – a choc-a-bloc with both small specialist shops and big stores like H&M and Zara.

NK – Nordiska Kompaniet department store is where Stockholm’s well-heeled shop. Åhléns is one of those department stores that sells absolutely everything. MOOD Stockholm is a natural meeting spot, both for the stockholmers and travelers – an enjoyable and modern city within the city.
