I travel. A lot. My choice of hotels really depends on the purpose of the trip and this time this combined vacation/staycation is due to practical reasons. I have a flight leaving at 6:20 AM in the morning and this hotel is literally a few steps away from the express train that takes you to Stockholm Arlanda Airport (which you’ll be able to see on my Instastories later), which saves me the hassle of getting a cab to the airport and actually allows me to relax and work in an environment which is both international and very business minded, not to mention, affordable. Comfort Hotel Stockholm is as close to the Central Station you can get and their business idea is not to offer a lot of amenities in the room, but by keeping it simple they can keep their prices down and a night here is about 50€, especially now in September when they will have a campaign beginning on September 5th where you can book a room for 499 SEK in any of their Comfort Hotels which are situated around Scandinavia.

The rooms are basic, but that’s the whole point. The city surrounding you is providing you with entertainment and this is only a place where you spend the night and in my case, not being a morning person, not even the entire night as getting up at 5:30 is not my cup of tea.
Instead of a reception they have a barception where you can get all the help needed for a stay where you get a comfortable hotel room and get to explore the city from one of the most convenient locations in town. If I’m working I need a bit of extra pampering when getting back to my hotel room late at night, but if I’m to explore a new city I’m always staying at places like these. And one thing you need to keep in mind is that 3 stars in any Scandinavian country comes with WAY higher standard than 3 stars in say southern Europe, the US or even London for that matter.
To conclude this post, wish me luck as I’m somewhat feverish and am leaving for the airport 12 hours from now, yay… And yes mom and all other friends worried out there, I am taking care of myself. Hence the stay at Comfort Hotel Stockholm to make my trip as easy as possible.
