It’s the Scandi capital, where tradition meets technology, where Abba super fans rub shoulders with fika-loving creative types, where jaw-dropping attractions, cool bars and incredible restaurants sit side-by-side. But not only that, Stockholm is the perfect place for anyone on the hunt for hygge. And what better way to find it than by renting your very own cozy home?

The Swedish capital isn’t the cheapest of cities, so make your kroner go further (and feel more like a local) with a stay in a sleek Scandi-cool studio or a lakeside eco-village from Airbnb. Or, if you’re feeling really fancy, you could opt for the grandeur of a castle (seriously). Your call; the best Airbnbs in Stockholm pretty much have it all.  

Stockholm’s best Airbnbs

Charming two-bed apartment in Södermalm

Rub shoulders with artsy types in independent coffee shops, take20-minute stroll into the old town or peruse the beach-side food stalls before retreating to this adorable historic apartment. While the original 1929 parquet boards are perfectly lovely, it’s the heated floor in the bathroom that has us excited.

Beautiful boutique home in Vasatsan

According to one guest, the photos don’t do the place justice. But with those impossibly high ceilings, signature Scandi furniture and natural light by the bucketload, we’d be happy to take the risk. And those with big feels for felines will be pleased to see Mossan the house cat occasionally make an appearance.

Stylish family-friendly apartment in Södermalm

This top-floor apartment is so fly, its Airbnb photo album is full of shots taken during an interior design mag shoot. But don’t worry about tiptoeing around the place, the owners have two young kids so your little’uns will have plenty of toys to keep them occupied while the big kids can cosy up on the balcony sofa with a glass of red. Bliss.

Living room with street lamp and boho decor

Centrally-located penthouse in Gamla stan

Yep, this is a pretty fancy penthouse. The vibe here is art-infused Scandi-cool but you’ll be hardpressed to find a four-bedroom apartment at this location, at this price and one that serves panoramic views over Stockholm from its rooftop terrace that are THIS sexy.

blue and white bedroom with abstract artwork on walls

Relaxed one-bed studio in Kungsholmen

This totally serene and ‘cozy, warm space’ (according to one happy camper) is just a 10-minute stroll from the central station and 15 minutes away from the Old Town. Plus, there are loads of local eateries to grab a bite in and a snug balcony to curl up on after a day’s wandering. Perfect for couples or lone travellers.

orangery room with dining tables, chairs and plant-covered walls

An orangery at Wenngarn

If it’s the royal treatment you’re after, you could do worse than staying at this orangery. Part of the Wenngarn castle estate (a space with an 18th-century castle and a load of cultural-historical buildings, the orangery is a ’30s build which was originally used as a residence for the castle gardener master. Bring all your biddies because this place sleeps 20. You can find a golf course nearby and also enjoy breakfast at the neighbouring Wenngarn Castle cafe.

Vintage three-bed in Ostermalm

Feeling flush? You will be after a stay on the top floor of this former bank. It’s strictly coasters only (ring marks on that antique furniture probably wouldn’t go down too well). And there’s a handily located fireplace to plonk yourself in front of, plus a wall of books to devour while you’re there.

Swanky one-bed apartment in a Södermalm skyscraper

For a slice of the high life and uninterrupted views over Stockholm that are practically begging to populate your Insta feed, it has to be this sleek-looking flat, located at the top of a 21-story building. And with all the best bars and restaurant spots are laid at your feet all you have to do is tear yourself away from that gorgeous view. Good luck!

heavily patterned apartment

Bohemian four-sleeper in Gamla Stan

When there are so many blankets and soft furnishings to be seen, it’s hard to imagine you won’t be comfy in this quirky apartment. Vibrant and covered in patterns, it’s a far cry from the Scandi-chic we’ve all become accustomed – but that’s not a bad thang. Besides, located in peaceful Gamla Stan, sightseeing is super easy and relaxing come evening is a breeze.

Eco-friendly B&B just outside the centre

If solar panels, lake-side saunas and environmentally friendly materials have got your sustainability senses tingling, make a beeline for this beautiful B&B, located in an "eco-village", which has a nature reserve right on its doorstep. And with the city just a 15-minute train ride away, it’s easy enough to pop into town if you’ve had enough of all that awful fresh air.

Character-filled one-bed near the Central Station

This colourful, characterful apartment fits three (if someone doesn’t mind the futon), and you can be in the old town in ten minutes by public transport. Plus, one major perk of staying in a property owned by a tour guide is it’s full of guidebooks and tips for making the most of your Stockholm stay. Result.
