Just got back from a week in Stockholm, and really liked our stay at the Parlan. <http://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g189852-d310123-Reviews-Parlan-Stockholm.html>

Within just a couple of blocks of the Ostermalmtorg T-bana stop - and easily walking distance to the tour boats, a number of shops and museums, etc.

Suppose the only "complaint", which I don't hold against the hotel, is that with the windows open at night - the street noise kept us awake a bit.

The welcome hotel in Barkarby is 10 minutes from Stockholm Central on T-Bahn. I stayed recently and at €70.00 per night for a single room including breakfast, its hard to beat.

The metro goes every 10 mins and cost €10.00 for 24 hours which included all trains, trams and buses.

The hotel would be 3 star, clean, efficient and freindly. Rooms (or at least the single onmes) were small but had window, pool view, tv en suite and wrting desk, what more would you want. Also, very quiet.

Day one i went in and explored Gamla Stan and had a meal.

Day two went to Vaxholm on ferry and that night went to Ice Bar.

Day three went to chaning of the guard and Vasa and explored the "new " part of the city.

Hope above is of help, have fun!!
