The most expensive hotels in Sweden can be found, of course, in Stockholm, where hotel prices continue to soar. During the first six months of 2012, prices in Stockholm were 3 percent higher than the same period last year. This according to the Hotel Price Index report, which is being presented by the hotel booking site Hotels.com. “Stockholm has been Sweden’s most expensive city when it comes to hotels for many years, and when the demand continues to be great, the prices continue to be at a high level," says Åsa Murphy, Hotels.com's Nordic manager. A night in Stockholm cost an average of 1200 SEK ($180) during the first six months of 2012; last year’s average price was 1161 SEK ($175). For the entire country the average hotel price for the first six months of 2012 was 1086 SEK ($163), an increase of 1 percent.
