Old World Charm at B&Bs in Sweden:
The charm of Bed & Breakfasts comes from the individual style of all the different places, each different from the next and none of them alike. A B&B in extemely rural areas may not have modern facilities - and you might have to get your water in a bucket. The good news: there are also many up-to-date Bed & Breakfast inns which are fully equipped and offer hotel-style amenities.
Making Bed & Breakfast Reservations & Cancellations:
Booking nights in a Bed & Breakfast may not be the same process you are used to with popular hotel chains. You may be calling the house owner directly to make arrangements. Or, you can use one of the agencies listed further below. Remember that Bed & Breakfasts are usually run privately so reservation and cancellation policies can differ widely. If the B&B is not notified of a cancellation in time, they have the right to receive payment in full.
In the cities and larger towns (e.g. at the ATUM Bed & Breakfast in Stockholm), you won't have a problem getting around due to Sweden's extensive public transportation network. If you are staying in more rural areas, you may wonder how to get around. Fortunately, most Bed & Breakfast places have thought of that as well and offer bicycle rentals and boats. Or, you can rent a car if you don't mind spending a little more.
