A classy chain hotel in upmarket Vasastan, on the western side of central Stockholm, with everything you’d expect except the price tag
Elite is a brand of four-star hotels across Sweden which come without the high-end prices. One of them is on the buzzing avenue of Sankt Eriksgatan, which runs diagonally through inner-city Stockholm’s west side. The affordable double bedrooms here are in a classic Swedish design.
Breakfast is always included and is a hearty, very Swedish affair of breads and jams, muesli and yoghurts. If you’ve left room after your morning meal, head downstairs to The Bishops’ Arms, their in-house, English-themed pub, and try their afternoon tea with a Swedish twist of scones served with fig jam and cheese.
Vasastan is one of the most sought-after postcodes in Stockholm. Here, avenues of gorgeous apartments in pastel colours meet park squares where children clamber on rocks and parents drink coffee outside all summer. This part of town is mostly served by the green metro line.
