Accommodation in Stockholm
Participants are invited to book their own accommodation.
Stockholm is a popular place to visit, which means that it has a great variety of accommodation possibilities – from expensive and luxurious, to inexpensive and spartan.
There is a google map that shows you various places:
Pre-booked hotel rooms. Choosing a pre-booked hotel room is a slightly more expensive solution – but it does offer you a guaranteed room in a very nice hotel, in a city where rooms are being booked very quickly.
Book your own hotel room. If you have special requirements (a special location, bringing family keeping a pet) you can book your own hotel. We recommend the CityBreak search engine.
Book a hotel room with Stockholm university special rates. This solution is most likely cheaper than the previous alternatives – you call up or email a hotel and say that you are a participant of the SLE conference at Stockholm university, and ask for the Stockholm University rate.
Book a hostel room. Swedish hostels are far more family oriented than their party prone continental cousins. Practically all of us Swedes at the Linguistic Department have used hostels when we’ve travelled throughout the country: it is typically cheap, clean with good locations, and a variety of choices – private rooms, double rooms, or larger rooms.
Travelling in Stockholm
Stockholm has an extensive local traffic network with buses, subways, trains and even ferries. The university is located on the Red subway line (towards Mörby Centrum), but switching lines is not a problem.
All public transportation (with the exception of some of the airport trains and buses) can be accessed with the same ticket. Read more about it here: http://sl.se/en/Visitor/Tickets/
