Even though we live only 35 kilometers from the city of Stockholm, we very much like staying once in a while in a hotel in the center of Stockholm. It is a welcome break to have this kind of "short vacation" in our own city.
In Stockholm we often choose to stay in a Scandic Hotell. I think we have soon tried all of them. Some favourites are:
Scandic Malmen in Södermalm
Scandic Hasselbacken in Djurgården
Public transport in Stockholm usually work very well. Within central Stockholm the best way of traveling is by underground or by bus. Sometimes it is also possible to choose a boat or a tram.
