Stockholm, Sweden, being the child-friendly city that it is, is home to a vast collection of comfortable and colorful hotels for visiting families. Spend the night inside a tree stump, a high end hotel, or a cozy hostel with room service, you’ll have your pick, and then some. Here’s a sample of some of the amazing hotels that we highlight in our Stockholm Destination Guide for traveling families with babies and toddlers.
Stallmästaregården hotel sits in a historic location, and even though the present incarnation opened in 2000, there has been an inn here since the 17th century. Holding 49 rooms, Stallmästaregården is situated just at the edge of the Haga Castle Park, where the Crown Princess has her residence. It’s far enough from the city center to hear the ducks quacking outside your window, but still close enough to be a nice long walk into town. Book a two-room loft-style accommodation and enjoy the hotel’s buffet breakfast on the patio overlooking the lake. Rates from around $252/night.
A more upscale Swedish hotel group is Radisson Blu. Their flagship hotel is right next to Stockholm Central Station. Their airport branch, Arlandia Blu, has family rooms which include a full bathroom plus separate toilet and sink, bunk beds, a pool, and an indoor play area! This is a great option for when you have a late arrival or an early morning departure. Rates from around $182/night.
Approximately a 1 hour flight from Stockholm to Luleå airport (LLA), Treehotel is a stay unlike any other. Located in Harads, a village of only 600, you’ll see nature more than you’ll see people. Perched high above the ground, take your pick from several unique Treehotel stays. Enjoy a breakfast buffet, sled down a hill, build a fire, create snowmen, and enjoy hot coffee and tea. Rates from around $571/night (Children under 2 years old stay for free)
Mushrooms or Tree Stumps? Bring the kids and live as trolls! Available at the Norrqvarn Hotel that sits on the Göta Canal in west Sweden, this is an unforgettable experience. Just a short walk from the main building, the accommodations contain their own fridge and kettle. Inside Norrqvarn, there is a restaurant (not open every day, be sure to check before your stay), a bar, TV, and free wifi. Rent bikes and cycle along the Göta Canal, go canoeing, and enjoy their barbeque and sauna. Rates from around $293/ night.
