This cheap and cheerful business hotel, is walking distance from Stureplan, the city’s nightclub and shopping district, and Rådmansgatan Metro Station

Unlike its namesake, who was a statesman, founder of Stockholm and important figure in Swedish history, the Birger Jarl Hotel isn’t stately. But this centrally located, comfortable gem does provide great value for money in one of the most expensive cities in the world.

A range of accommodation options include a choice of recently refurbished suites, junior suites and studios from among 271 guest rooms. Some include kitchenettes for extended stays; while all have either a bathtub or shower, suites feature both, as well as multiple TVs.

Powerful showers, comfortable armchairs and minibars, tea/coffee machines and modern lighting and décor are features of every individually designed room. Pets are welcome for an additional charge; there’s also parking, free Wifi, and a breakfast buffet offering Swedish staples such as meatballs and mustard herring, a make-your-own-waffle station and gluten free/lactose-free alternatives.

While the location ensures you’re already well-connected to shopping, restaurants and other points of interest, you won’t want to miss the AfterWork jazz evenings held every Wednesday in the lobby bar.

A bustling neighbourhood in north-central Stockholm, Vasastan is home to most of the city’s second-hand record shops, ethnic restaurants and points of interest such as the old Stockholm Observatory, the Jewish Museum and the home of world-famous children's author and creator of Pippi Longstocking, Astrid Lindgren. 

1. A Bit of the Old Touch:
For reasonably priced vintage men’s and women’s shopping.
2. Stockholm Concert Hall: For an elegant night at a live music event such as the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra.
3. Observatorielunden: For a relaxing afternoon visiting a former observatory established 300 years ago.
