Stockholm University has a special agreement with Stockholm Plaza Hotel. This hotel is conveniently and centrally located in the very nice area, Östermalm. It is within a short walking distance of the Östermalmstorg subway station (tunnelbanestation) where you can board a train on the red line #14 that will take you directly to Stockholm University (Universitetet). The trip takes about 8 minutes, and you will alight at the third stop.
Phone or email Elite Stockholm Plaza Hotel in order to get their guaranteed discount rate – simply tell reception that you are visiting Stockholm through Stockholm University’s Department of English, and they will give you a preferential rate of 1460 SEK per night:
In addition, here are two more relatively inexpensive hotels:
- Best Western Time Plus Hotel – variable rates, located in an area called Vasastan, which is not far from the university. From this hotel, you can take bus 50 toward Stora Lappkärrsberget. The nearest bus stop is Odenplan, about a 10 minute walk. Alight at a stop called Universitetet. The trip takes about 15 minutes.
- First Hotel Kungsbron – offers a guaranteed price of 988 SEK for a single and 1168 SEK for a double room. These prices are guaranteed until the end of June. This hotel is located near Central Station. The best way to get to the university from this hotel is to walk to the T-Centralen subway station, about a 10 minute walk, and board a train on the red line #14 that will take you directly to Stockholm University (Universitetet). The trip takes about 10 minutes; alight at the fourth stop.
For more options, go to avropa.se and search listings of hotels with guaranteed prices in different price categories. You will probably need to take public transportation to Stockholm University, as there are no hotels in the immediate vicinity.
Renting a room or apartment through Airbnb is, of course, another possibility. Please feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions about convenient locations.
