In Stockholm: Staying in Kungsholman

Deciding where to stay in Stockholm was based on two things, was it cheaper than others and is it easy to get into the centre of Stockholm. I can definitely say I choose the right place! Let me explain.

This area is really really pretty and it’s where you can get a great view of the Karlberg Palace. Which is the home of the Military Academy. With all of the boats docked on the jettys it just makes for the most lovely picture. Take note, you might feel terribly unfit in this area! PhoebeGill160714403There is a great walkway that runs all along the water and it is busy with people running, walking and cycling. It’s a really nice walk that finishes just outside the main shopping district of Stockholm. PhoebeGill160714633-1The hotel I stayed at was the Connect City Hotel and I was really pleasantly surprised with my stay. It is so close to the Fridhemsplan T-Bana station. I got a single room with no windows for 4 nights for €228. I thought I was going into a cell but I was very happy. Stockholm gets hot in the Summer so I was worried that I would be sweltering but the fact there isn’t a window, means that it doesn’t get hot or cold. The duvet was really comfortable. The bed is small so tall people might find it difficult.PhoebeGill160713041I only had one problem with the hotel. At breakfast there is a tap that dispensed juice and as it was hot weather, there were a swarm of fruit flies, it wasn’t great. Other than that it was a great stay in a lovely area. I definitely recommend a stay here and I would stay here again.

Happy Travels!
