Accommodation options in Sweden

Swedish hotel prices are not among the most inexpensive in the world. However, you can find very reasonably priced hotel rooms – even for families with children – on weekends and during the long Swedish holiday season from midsummer (the end of June) to mid-August.

Moreover, there are a number of alternative accommodation options, most of which are good and inexpensive, including holiday homes with self-catering, campsites, youth hostels and B&Bs.
