Accomodation

We do not supply any specific recommendations for hotels but;

To simplify hotel search, look for places around Stockholmsmässan Exhibition Center, Älvsö: https://www.booking.com/landmark/se/stockholm-international-congres-center.html.

If you don't mind some commute, the best option would be to stay close to the commuter train line https://sl.se/ficktid/karta/vinter/Ptag.pdf. Stations within half an hour commute (including walking) that lie fairly central are Årstaberg, Stockholms södra (southern train station is here), Stockholm city (central railway station, Flygbussarna and Arlanda express), and Stockholm Odenplan. There are many more hostels out there if you're interested in one.

Arrival

By Plane:

There are 3 possible airports fairly convenient to get to Stockholm:
  • Arlanda Airport - The main airport, from here you can take the commuter train directly to Älvsjö or a Bus coach (flygbussarna.se) to the central station. There is also both normal trains and express trains going to the central station.
  • Bromma Airport - The secondary airport, easiest from here would be a Bus coach (flygbussarna.se) to the central station, and then take the commuter train to Älvsjö. If you are fine with walking about 15 minutes then you can take local transport. (Easiest would be tvärbanan från Karlsbodavägen to Årstaberg and there swap to Commuter train).
  • Skavsta Airport - Located in Nyköping but still marked as Stockholm according to Ryanair. Has some cheap flights. To get from here the Bus coach (flygbussarna.se) to Stockholm central station is practically the only option.

Flygbussarna:

https://flygbussarna.se/en
Cheap and reliable, 99 SEK from Bromma or Arlanda, 139 SEK from Skavsta. Will drop you off at the central train station in Stockholm.

Local transit:

All the local transit (commuter train, subway and busses) are handled by SL.
You cannot pay by Cash in the train or bus.
You can buy individual tickets with the app or buy a travel card at stations, https://sl.se/en/fares--tickets/
there is a 3 days options that could be cheaper depending on planned use.
