Hotels in Sweden

The best hotels in Sweden can get pricy during the high season, and especially on weekends. If your trip includes several stops, you may want to play around with your itinerary and see if you can save by, for example, staying in Stockholm or Gothenburg midweek. Almost all hotels in Sweden include breakfast in the room rate, and this is often a lavish spread of cheeses, breads, smoked fish, muesli, yogurt, and pastries—as well as coffee and tea.

The Hotel Anno 1647 in Stockholm's hopping Södermalm neighborhood combines two historic buildings (one was once a tobacco factory, the other a clothing one) with contemporary interiors. The rooms have rustic pine floors, crystal chandeliers, and blackout drapes—essential in a city that gets 18 hours of sunlight a day in the summer. There's a complimentary breakfast of homemade yogurt and knäckerbröd (crispy bread).

Another popular option among Sweden hotels is the Hotel Diplomat, also in Stockholm on the grand boulevard Strandvagen, overlooking the harbor. The 1911 Art Nouveau building is a striking white, with ornate scrolling, narrow balconies, and arched windows. The 130 rooms are individually decorated with bright white walls, floral patterns, and muted colors.
