Does anyone have recommendations for good AirBnBs in Stockholm? I'll be traveling at the end of May and staying for 3 nights. It will be my first time staying in an AirBnB.
My wife and I stayed at an AirBnB on our last visit to Stockholm. Our interest was in finding something "close in" that we could afford. Our experience was ok, but the accommodation fell short of our expectation. We realize in hindsight that finding lodging close in and "inexpensive" is a nearly impossible task in Stockholm. If you go the BnB route, you might familiarize yourself with the public transportation network (the T) and find something within walking distance of a station out from center city. I did a quick check south of center city and found a BnB in the Skarpnäck neighborhood that is US$60.00/night. This would be a real bargain in Stockholm and worth a ride on the train to reach Stockholm. As you are searching for a place, check reviews closely (not only on AirBnB but Trip Advisor, etc). And go to Google "street view" to get a sense of the area the BnB is in.
Good luck and enjoy Stockholm
If you find something on AirBnB, I'd suggest you look for places with lots of reviews and stay within the city. I'd focus on the residential areas of Vasastan, Södermalm, and Östermalm. If you find a place you are considering, post it here and I will be happy to comment on the location. I lived in Stockholm for a couple of years.
Skärpnack would not be very convenient for a tourist, in my opinion.
I booked an Airbnb in Östermalmstorg. Location is walking distance from the Central Train Station and to Vasa and ABBA museums but what is the neighborhood like?
I booked an AirBnb in Sodermalm, just along Hornsgatan. From what I've read it's a good area with lots of shops and places to eat. The place is close to Mariatorget T-bana and easily walkable to Gamla Stan.
I agree with what you read: That's a good area. It's also an easy walk to the ferry from Slussen to Djurgarden, which is a useful way to get to places like the Vasa Museum and Skansen. Note that if you get a travelcard for the local trains and buses, the Slussen-Djurgarden ferry is included in that. There are other ferries that aren't.
