Late night flight into Stockholm, transportation into city?

Hello!

My husband and I have a 2-night stopover in Stockholm next month (May 20th and 21st), and I'm trying to figure out how to get to the city center from the airport very late at night. Our arriving flight lands at 11:55pm...is this too late to take public transportation into the city?

We have a yacht hotel booked in the city, but if it is highly recommended to stay near the airport (and if anyone has good suggestions) I'm able to cancel our current reservation for free.

Any suggestions?
Thank you in advance!

The last departure of the Arlanda Express is at 1:05 am, so you should have time to make that. It will take you to the Central Station. Thursday to Sunday, you can get a discounted ticket cor two persons. The time table is here:

You'd then have to travel to your hotel. If you tell me where it is, I can help with options.

Alternatively, you can take a taxi for a fixed price (around 520 SEK). However, taxis are unregulated so it is very important to use one of the reliable companies ... either Taxi Stockholm, Taxi Kurir, or Taxi 020. i usually use Taxi Stockholm and you can prebook from their website.

CORRECTION. I just noticed that you arrive on a Wednesday. The price would then be 280 SEK each (560 SEK for 2) since the discount is only Thurs to Sun

I'd take a taxi and ask for a fixed price at that time of night.

I forgot to ask which airport you are coming into. I assumed it was Arlanda. If it is Skavsta, then things are different.

The subway ("tunnelbana") and bus are very simple to use. Many signs are in both Swedish and English.
