Best area to stay in Stockholm

We are planning Stockholm next summer for a trip and are trying to plan where to stay. The old town looks fantastic but seems to just have expensive hotels. We prefer to stay in apartments. Any suggestions on area in or close to the old town that is best to stay in and also any good apartments would be graet thanks.

If you want to stay within a walking distance from the Old Town, you could better stay at the lower part of Södermalm, around Slussen or Mariatorget, on the other side of the Old City island you have the City-area, which has hotels and offices, but not many inhibitants. Remember that it is quite easy to take a bus or the metro, and that Stockholm is quite wide-spread, so you don´t actually have to limit yourself to Old Town and surroundings. Behind City you´ll find Norrmalm and Östermalm, which is posher and probably more expensive. The only area I would stay away from is the immediate surroundings of Central Station, like in many cities, it´s not the best part of town.
