    Vaxholm/Bogesunds Slottsvandrarhem

    Behind Bogesunds Castle, 5.5km southwest of Vaxholm town, this pleasant STF hostel has a pretty, farmlike setting. There's a decent guest kitchen, but you'll need to get groceries in Vaxholm. Bus service to the hostel is infrequent even in summer; bus 681 departs Vaxholm's Söderhamnsplan at 6.44am, 10.50am, 2pm, 5.12pm and 6.46pm Monday to Friday, and 8.12am, 11.09am, 1.49pm and 5.49pm on weekends.

    Waxholms Hotell

    Overlooking the harbour, this grand dame dates back to the early 20th century. Rooms are spotless, if simple, with parquet floors, maritime-themed artwork and pale fabrics. If possible, snag a room with a balcony to drink up those gorgeous views. The breakfast buffet should set you up for the morning with a fine array of hot and cold choices. There's no lift.
